“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” –Anne Frank
Luckily, I discovered my gifts when I was a very young child. I loved performing for others. So I just did it. I joyfully acted, danced, tapped, twirled and sang my way through my youth for whoever would watch or listen. As I grew, I realized that my purpose in this world is to touch the lives of others using my voice and inner power. So I just did it. I built a career as a voice talent with that vision.
Early on, I looked for every opportunity to impact you with my voice and gifts, whether on the phone, face to face or behind the mic. I care deeply about your experience. So I just continued developing my craft.
Today I realize this impact at a much deeper level, with every syllable I speak and every minute action I take. At this very moment, I can turn around and speak heartfelt love to my husband and children, listen to a friend, speak kindly to my neighbor or the grocer, and make a difference in their lives. It is this voice, and these simple and small acts that bring me closest to using my gifts for a higher purpose.
My career truly begins with who I am when I get out of bed in the morning; first with the relationships that I am building inside myself, in my home, on my street and in my community. This is the fastest, most direct way to improve the world. And this opportunity is available to me at every moment. Right now, I can turn around and just do it.
