I’m Leah. In 2001 I was working at a high-end restaurant. I worked hard and I played hard. I was making CRAZY money and all my ducks were in a row. But my soul was in a serious jam. I didn’t really like what I was doing, even though I was great at it. And the people I was spending most of my time with — my work colleagues — weren’t too inspiring either. They didn’t get me, and it was exhausting trying to fit in.

Eventually, I just stopped trying. The worst part was that I felt trapped in this situation . I had bills to pay, I needed the money, and everyone told me that I would be crazy to leave such a high paying job. So, I sucked it up and began to believe that this was just the way it had to be . I was frustrated and uninspired. As a result I was pretty bitchy most of the time. I found myself desperate for more fun and meaning in my life.Leah Shapiro

I spent a lot of time looking for something to make me feel better. I went out for drinks most nights and partied a lot. When I was home alone, I always had the TV or the computer on, sometimes both at the same time. I was trying to tune out that part of me that was crying out for something different. Deep down inside I knew that my life could be different, that this couldn’t be ‘it’, but I was not sure exactly what ‘it’ was that I was looking for.

Strangely enough, I would catch a glimpse of it every now and then. I would come across a stranger who seemed “shiny” to me and they would have a special sparkle in their eyes. I could tell that their life did not suck. All I knew was that I wanted some of what they had. I had to break free of the miserable, meaningless life I was living. I wanted to like my job. I wanted to enjoy my life and be inspired by it. I wanted to stop hiding who I really was. I felt like there was so much more in me, but I had NO IDEA how to access that.

Then, I got to the point where it was no longer ‘OK’ to remain at a job that I hated and to be so unsatisfied by my life. Something clicked inside me and I walked out of my pre-packaged life and embarked on the journey of re-discovering who I had become and who I wanted to be. I made the commitment to settle for nothing less than living a Kick-Ass Life. I set out to create my life so that I had  the freedom and flexibility to be my ‘freaky’ self while making money doing meaningful work that I loved. 

Fast forward to today. I’m a coach who loves her work, helping non-conforming souls, like you, identify the pre-packaged beliefs that stand in the way of your living your Kick-Ass Dream Life right now. Simply put: I am the champion for you & your non-conforming soul. I help you break free from your pre-packaged life to create the kick-ass life of your dreams.
