Playing Small Moment
Right out of college, Emi took a job without any thought or negotiation. Soon after, she turned down a second job offer because she thought simply having a job was the goal. Looking back, she realizes she should have negotiated with her first employer, and at least considered the path that the other job could have brought.
The Wake Up Call
Emi had her wake up call when she decided to get a divorce, and came to terms with doing things that benefit her. During marriage counseling, they reached a point where change was not happening and a decision had to be made. It was the right call for her and her children to make that healthy change, and it was something that allowed her to parent the way she wanted to.
Style of Leadership
Emi views herself as a mentor and a teacher. No matter who it is, she will take the time to talk to them and offer suggestions to help get to the next step. Emi believes we need more uplifting and support to help each other in this world.
What Are You Excited About?
Emi has a 4 Module e-course called French Fries to Foodies, launching in January. She got tired of negotiating and bargaining with her picky eaters, until she decided she was done. She created this program around that and strategies she has used.
Emi believes in the importance of meditating, centering and grounding. She is always open to new systems, techniques, and ways of doing things. Emi always tries to gain by learning from others.
