SPEAKER, AUTHOR, MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT, CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR MENTOR, AND PIONEER IN HARNESSING CREATIVITY TO HEAL BURNED OUT HUSTLERS
HI! I'M AZIZI.
HOW I GOT HERE
As an overwhelmed and stressed out new business owner, I found myself surviving on TONS of coffee, takeout, and sugared up junk food just about every night, relying on very little sleep and barely connecting with my children due to the ridiculously long hours. My business was rockin' it but I felt like complete crap. I was suffering from burnout, inflammation and adrenal fatigue, which landed me in the hospital, and led me to work with some of the best-of-the-best holistic wellness professionals, thus learning how to TRULY take care of MYSELF. I committed myself to healthy eating, meditation, exercise and sleep. I did NOT give up my coffee (though definitely less now).
Not surprisingly, I felt dramatically better within just a few weeks. Having grown up with parents who pioneered the field of psychotherapy, a dad who made everything from scratch, and a mother who valued advocating for others, I just kind of knew how to care for others. Fast-forward through several jobs as a creative arts therapist, a much-needed discovery of a "Jump Start Your Business" book, and meeting new friends who introduced me to mentors and fellow mompreneurs, I did something that I didn’t even know was possible — I turned my passion to harness the power of creativity, play and innovation to engage and heal the world into an internationally known brand and never looked back.
This real life experience, coupled with my expertise as a world renowned creative arts therapist, has led me to help high achieving women heal the chronic burnout, anxiety and overwhelm it generates PRECISELY because I come at it from such an innovative, holistic and creative approach.
WHICH LEADS ME TO WHY THIS SITE EXISTS: I'M HERE TO SERVE YOU.
Before I turned my business into a million dollar company, before I started my own group therapy practice, and before I opened my training center, I was an overachiever in Corporate Psych America, working for the "Man". Unsure of where to start and the misguided belief that everything had to be perfect, I didn’t know that being a creative entrepreneur or making money as a speaker was even a thing.
My life’s mission is to help other women honor their inner hustle, create vibrant health, a thriving business, and lives that they truly love through online programs, my free email newsletter, and virtual community.
