FAB EGO SCALE
is introducing fabulously stylish and talented personas
Where are you from and where is your current home?
I'm from Lyndonville, VT and currently in NYC. I grew up around a lot of trees and cows.
What is your fab ego scale from 1 to 10 and why?
My fab ego scale is a 9 because there's always room for growth and I love life where I'm at!
Where do you shop?
I shop for food at Trader Joe's because I eat super healthy, the employees are always in a good mood and believe they care about the environment.
Some places I shop are Club Monaco, Nordstrom, Zara. I like to explore a lot of different shops.
Your style icon.
Style icon has to be Brad Pitt. The dude rocks it.
Your spiritual mentor.
My spiritual mentor is Eckhart Tolle. I LOVE the Power of Now and his other work. I'm a recovering Catholic so I had written off religion and spirituality for 15+ years. He got me back into believing in something bigger than myself.
Your favorite NYC coffee place, art gallery, park, shop etc
Favorite NYC coffee place is The Little Fox Cafe. It's chill, good music and quaint. My favorite park is Central Park. I love finding quiet spots there to read in the summer. Plus81 gallery is cool and has some fun events.
Your occupation and your passion. Why you chose this path?
I stand for freedom. I believe every person should be able to wake up every day and do whatever they want. I help people create financial and personal freedom through my own combination of life coaching and business coaching.
Who or what inspired you?
I felt like I was in prison after I graduated college and started working for a corporation. I got really depressed and hated life. This lead me to quit and become an entrepreneur where I believed life would be different. It was for a time but then I found myself in a prison that I had self-created. I worked 7 days a week, 12 hours a day and made very little money. I knew there was something going on inside of me that was limiting my life. Eventually I became friends with a life coach and he suggested I join a year-long life coach training program, Accomplishment Coaching. I joined and life has never been the same. I almost didn't join the training program but my long-time mentor suggested I read a book called the Portable Coach. I ordered it and received it one Friday morning. I read it for four hours and decided that coaching is what I was meant to do in life. I was living in Boston at the time. I got on a bus at 8pm, arrived in NYC at 1am and started the program at 8am.
Who you wanted to become when you were a kid?
As a kid I wanted to be a professional basketball player. I was good...but not that good. ;)
Your favorite quote, poem or song.
Quote - "Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Your wishes to fab ego.
I hope everyone reading this amazing magazine is inspired to continue pursuing his/her dream. Surround yourself with people that believe in you and learn to believe in yourself. You are perfect in every way and exactly where you need to be.
How can we make our Earth a better place?
If you are an artist, you can impact the world by giving your gift freely and often. I recently read The Artist's Way and got rid of a whole bunch of blocks stopping me from giving my artistic gifts. I'd recommend picking it up.
