Well, here we go! I’ve really thought a lot about what this first post should be about and then landed on sharing my vision for Fiorii and how it came to be. For 23 years I have been working with women to help them build a business from the ground up. I have absolutely loved it! Not all of it, as with anything , but most of it. I love coming alongside people to help them to achieve whatever their goals are. I love watching someone break a belief barrier and discover a new level of confidence. I love when someone has an aha moment about a limiting belief and are able to move past it. Or when they are stressed out and life has gotten completely out of whack and they can regain some harmony in their life. I love seeing a business flourish and relieve a family of the financial stress they are under. I love seeing people really embrace who they are and recognize that they are unique and have something wonderful to share with the world. I love helping people really define what “success” is to them and then chasing it down with wild abandon.
My core belief system is that we have all been created with our own special set of gifts and talents and that we are called to MAX out those gifts in our time on this earth. Sadly, somewhere along the way those gifts can get covered up under a pile of “stuff” that has happened to us or choices we’ve made. We can lose sight of who we really are at our core and settle into mediocrity. 7 years ago I found myself in this exact place. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I had a great husband, 3 amazing children and one on the way, a thriving business, good friends, etc. but I felt so unfulfilled. Everything, even things I loved, like Christmas, had lost their sparkle. A dear friend stepped in and encouraged me to talk to a mentor of hers and assured me he could help. I reluctantly gave him a call and that call literally changed my life. I talked to him every two weeks for 6 months and then off and on over the years. He was, and still is, someone who challenges me, encourages me to dig deeper, reminds me of my gifts and my responsibility to use them, and helped re-light the fire within me.
Knowing how invaluable that work is, I wanted to pass that on to others, so Fiorii was born. Fiorii means “to flourish.” I wanted to create a company and a brand that encourages people to flourish. Just like the Fiori gardenia, my favorite flower, there are times to bloom, times to prune, times to water, and times to wait. All of the different seasons are vital. You can’t have one without the other. So it is in our life, our relationships, and our businesses. I want to come alongside people and organizations during all seasons of their life to support, challenge, encourage, and reset. Fiorii will do that through one-on-one coaching, team coaching and consulting, retreats, speaking engagements, this blog and our social media page. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this work!
Thanking you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the first blog! If I can be of support to you in your journey, reach out. Praying blessings over you and yours.
