TALK DON'T COOK RICE, ACTION DOES
You work hard. You’re responsible. And you do A LOT to help other people.
But for all your ambition and do-goodery, you still aren’t living the life you want.
I'm Fay Ferguson, Epic Life Coach, and I'm so glad you're here.
Whether you’re climbing the career ladder and feel like you’re not being valued, building a business and feel like you can’t give it the focus it needs to grow, supporting your family and feel like you need more time for yourself, waiting for others to change and feel like your life is on hold; or transitioning through a major life change and feel like you need to find yourself again, you’ve come to the right place. I was once in the same place.
My personal journey from pain to power
I grew up in an unpredictable, sometimes chaotic environment. From a very young age, I struggled with abandonment, rejection and depression, which subconsciously created unhealthy beliefs about my own worth—beliefs that I carried well into adulthood.
For years I believed that, in order to feel valued by the people in my life, I had to constantly prove myself. I had to be the leader and the caretaker, always putting their needs first. More often than not, this came at the steep cost of my own happiness and well-being.
I repeated that pattern so often and so long that I overextended myself—mentally, physically and emotionally—to the point of illness. I drank more than usual, reached my highest body weight ever, and my blood pressure and cholesterol were off the charts. I had even started experiencing panic attacks.
It took losing my hair, which had become noticeably thin and lifeless, to finally make me say enough with the self-neglect.
I decided it was time to start prioritizing myself again.
I audited my life and career and eliminated the people, places and things that were draining my time, money and energy. I also began to recognize stressors and triggers in my life, and set boundaries. I learned to confidently say no to obligations that didn’t feel right to me. I set goals, made a plan to reach them, and celebrated every success, both big and small.
Eventually, my health and hair started to improve. The panic attacks were gone. For the first time in a very long time, I felt free, true peace and really good about myself.
It’s now my mission to help people, just like you, feel empowered, take a permanent stress break and kickstart your epic life journey.
