Do you know what it feels like to be stuck in an unfulfilling career? Do you know the anger and frustration—the rage—caused by feeling stuck on a professional path that is no longer a good fit? Are you yearning for the freedom and flexibility of starting your own consulting or coaching business but have no idea where to start or what to expect? 

 

There aren’t enough unrewarding professional opportunities in the universe worth staying in a career that causes you anger, anxiety, and depression. You deserve to do purposeful work that uncovers the unique value you bring to the world and supports the best version of yourself and your life.

 

In her debut book, Trust Your Wings: How I Left My Corporate Job to Start a Consulting and Coaching Business from Scratch, performance consultant and career coach Grisel Scarantino shares intimate details around her decision to leave her stifling corporate career and launch her own successful entrepreneurial ventures. 

 

Drawing from her experiences in overcoming professional, emotional, and physical setbacks, she introduces instructive tools to help you courageously release what’s holding you back. When you decide to lose the shackles of your ill-suited and energy-draining career, you can become the best version of yourself, start your own business, and ultimately learn to Trust Your Wings.

More About Grisel- Personal Details 

The me that exists today is very different than the me that was existing years ago. Before, I was doing just that... existing. I wasn't truly living like I am today.

 

I didn't have the time or energy to do anything other than work, or spend time silently recharging my battery over the weekends only so I could get up and start the work week all over again. Like a never-ending Groundhog's Day. It got to the point where I had no choice but to notice how everything else was slowly eroding around me: my relationships, my smile, my sparkle, my health.

But those days are long gone. Why? Because I took my career into my own hands. I didn't realize just how much my career impacts my overall life experience until I took control over my career and aligned it my authentic strengths. Now, my work life can be described as one of ease, plus I get to do all of the things I love when I'm not working... a recipe for a truly enjoyable life.

When I'm not working, you'll find me being a foodie, a home chef, and growing my backyard food forest. There is so much we can do to help the planet simply by reducing food waste, composting, and growing native plants and I was *this close* to receiving a minor in environmental science (unbeknownst to me) in my undergrad career. On a related note, I'm a huge Big Foot enthusiast, mostly because the deep woods are my happy place. Endlessly fascinated by nature and our place in the universe, I lose myself for hours going down the research rabbit hole expanding my awareness on the laws of nature and our magnetism. Traveling and exploring different cultures, creating art, engaging in a variety of self-care habits, going on ghost tours in haunted cities, and unapologetically indulging in binge-watching murder mysteries - that's me. I get to indulge in my hobbies, spend time nurturing my meaningful relationships, and engage in unencumbered relaxation.

I can sincerely tell you that, now, I am living my personal vision of my ideal life! Doing that allows me to be in a positive headspace more often than not, which makes me more creative and better at everything I do. It makes me attract more exciting opportunities that resonate with my values and passion space. I'm even getting recognition from notable spaces... just for being me. 

Below are snapshots of things that put a pep in my step and fuel my zest for life...
