A Full Circle Moment

I’ll never forget this full circle moment…

If you tuned into the podcast this week, then you heard about my back story. I was someone who was shy and had zero belief in myself. We were broke AF, and I was on state assistance living in my little 800-square-foot home, and I was miserable.  


Becoming a mom to Lane changed the course of my entire life.

He made me want more for myself because I wanted more for him. I wanted to be present with him and not work out of my home, away from him, 40 hours per week. I wanted to become someone he could look up to and be proud of. HE WAS MY WHY! 

My Full Circle Moment

Fast forward to the moment in these pictures. I was asked to speak on the main stage as a keynote speaker to 30,000 people on the topic of belief & integrity… I spoke on how to overcome self-limiting beliefs and how to handle when life throws you curveballs (I had the opportunity to share some of Lilly’s story as well).

What a 360°, right?

I was someone broke, shy, insecure, and had no belief in myself to turning my entire life around so much to become a main stage speaker on the topic. 

The full circle part was when I was able to invite my son Lane up on stage with me to close it out.

Crying as I type this.

I made my speech into a baseball theme because we are huge Chicago Cubs fans.

He was so proud that I was speaking and was even more excited that he got to run up on the stage at the end to close it out with me by saying,

That is a moment and a memory that will be in my brain for life!
