Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview has a story that the dots can be connected all the way back to being a child……Liz Cortes
Starting with her love for gymnastics, Liz Cortes excelled at flips, tumbles, and all the other things that I can’t even do one off, until one day her gymnastics coach failed to turn up for a session.
Instead of doing what most kids would do when the teacher is suddenly not around, and mess around, chat, and generally savour the fact that there are no adults in the room, our guest had other ideas.
Jumping up Liz decided to take over the session herself and for the next seven years coached 2 year olds up to adults.
And that is the beauty of life spent joining up the dots, as most of the time there is a big dot that takes you off on a path that you couldn’t have predicted when the dot first appears.
Most of the time you don’t even know that it appeared at all.
But her love for coaching was born, and after a series of injuries curtailed her continued participation in competitive athletics, she quickly developed a new passion for personal training, nutrition coaching, and teaching group exercise classes.
And the rest as they say is history…..but not so fast.
As although this seems like a normal story of a lady finding her path in life and following it through to success, it was far from that, as once Liz Cortes started to get serious and create her own fitness business, whilst her clients were getting healthier and fitter the complete opposite was true of our guest today.
Starting a new business, paying all her bills, was making her so stressed out, that it slowly started taking a toll on her body.
6 months later her body shut down.
Shut down as in can’t train clients, can’t teach classes, constant pain, and she can barely stay awake.
So what does she do?
How does she recover her mojo, her fitness and her business, and take it to greater and greater levels of success.
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only lovely and uber fit Liz Cortes
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How it was two years before she realised that she had a ocean view Californian sunset outside her window due to working so hard!
How her best friend caused her huge distress after working together for two years…but it was a good thing that she did!
How she believes that she has self-sabotaged her life at times, due to the fear of tackling obstacles!
How she quite often will jump into situations without first thinking of the consequences!
How she realised that her true path was there in front of her, only after the worst professional and personal time of her life!
