Hey Ya'll! I'm Joey, President and Lead Coach of this fabulous organization. With so many new faces joining us lately, I thought it might be a good idea to share a little of our/my story, to help you better understand WHY and HOW we do what we do.
Several years ago, my entire life fell apart. I lost my family, my friends, my home, my job, my biological father and my identity all in the same year. If I wasn't a wife, a step-mom, a missionary, a caretaker...what in the world was I? I had no idea what to do or where to go, let alone how to begin living this new life. I had to make a choice...see my life as over OR learn to begin again. My precious parents gave me a 12 ft, pop-out Kodiak skamper, I hitched it to the only thing I owned (my 2005 Chevy Suburban) and set out in the world to discover "who is the real Jo" -when stripped of all the factors that had identified me in the past, who am I?
What do I like to do?
What are MY favorite foods?
Where do I want to live?
What do I want to be when I grow up?
What are my core values?
What kind of relationship do I want to be in?
What kind of legacy do I want to leave?
I visited new places, talked to strangers, sang sad songs (and mad songs) at the top of my lungs, learned to make chicken broth, hiked mountains and water-falls, wore cowboy boots, read books, took myself out on dates, journaled until my fingers bled, let my hair go wild and took back my maiden name. Slowly, I began to discover not only who I was, but what I was capable of. My life was no longer a wreckage...it was a blessing, an opportunity...and so is YOURS! After a few years, I came off the road, built a tiny-house with my Pop and decided that my future would be spent helping other women who had experienced something similiar. Maybe your story doesn't match mine. That's so cool, it's not supposed to. Your journey is unique and colorful and powerful all on it's own. Let's tap into that! Mother, daughter, sister, friend, CEO, admin, service-clerk, mechanic, horse-woman, retiree...whoever you are, wherever you are...you were designed for a life of greatness, adventure, purpose and love. So, after a lifetime of working with "women in transition", I created The Infuse Project so you don't have to get rid of everything to discover your worth, your value, your options and your capablities. You can go start your very own journey right where you are...right here, right now!
