In this episode, we talk about:
- how the trajectory of our life can change in an instant
- the magic of accountability
- how we have the power to turn our darkest times into movements
 
Louisa in her own words:
Life as I knew it…
Like most people, I had a mental blueprint as to how my life would unfold both professionally and personally.  Early on in my career, I experienced great success as a marketing specialist. I played an integral part in the development of non-profit organizations and event management teams, even launching an Emmy-nominated television series for teens. To top this, I met my incredible husband, and we started making plans to start a family. I was on my way to checking off many of life’s boxes…or so I thought.
 An unexpected turn…
Then, in my late 30’s, an unexpected series of events would throw my original blueprint right out the window, changing the trajectory of my life. Within a five-year period, both my father and mother were diagnosed with late-stage cancer; my husband, whose brain cancer had been dormant for years, had an aggressive re-occurrence. I immediately went into my strategic, pragmatic, and positive mode, taking action and doing endless Google searches looking for answers to help my loved ones now.  I watched them battle for their lives, all the while witnessing them still living full out.  Sadly, both my father and husband died within 18 months of each other; remarkably my mother entered a full remission.
An unexpected, amazing shift…
In retrospect, as I shifted my focus internally, what began to appear for me were amazing mentors, the right books, and courses in personal development.   I saw I possessed a natural resilience; I could handle anything that life presented to me, even if it’s not what I had planned. Different gifts and talents began to emerge from within as a writer, intuitive and coach. This gave me great peace of mind and a new perspective on everything; I felt a true personal power especially knowing that I had a choice as to how I reacted and responded to ANY area of my life. It became very clear that this is what I wanted to share and guide others through.
My new blueprint in life is to simply live Full Out in the present; to empower others and help them realize that they can integrate and transcend life’s twists and turns with courage, power, and grace.
