Learn More about Ava by listening to our interview about her ACTV8 experience
Hey! I am a Social Media Coach and Self-Love Advocate. Born and raised in Minneapolis, I’m a city dweller that loves yoga and rap music (an unlikely yet perfect combination). My first big girl job was at Radisson Hotel Group, which I blame to this day for an infinite case of wanderlust. Needless to say, I’m always DTT- down to travel. A few of my favorite things include sipping my morning coffee outside, collecting vintage pink dresses, and savoring an occasional glass of Italian red wine. Cheers, friends!
What guided you to V?
I was guided to V because I was ready to uncover my purpose and actively pursue it. I had people in my life at the time that were actively pursuing their passions and I wanted to have the same thing for myself. I was continually running into frustrations because I just didn’t know what “the thing” was. Now I know, and I could not be more grateful.
I LOVE LEARNING. Going through ACTV8 was a dream for me, because it felt like I was enrolled in a school program, and school is something I was always good at. From the weekly learning sessions to the homework, I was in my element! ACTV8 was highly fulfilling, and the unexpected tornado of revelations, changes, and straight-up-blessings kept me motivated through the process. Who knew that so much could actually change in 8 weeks?!
Reflecting back to where you started before ACTV8:
Halfway through the course I went through an unexpected break-up. It didn’t make any sense at the moment when my partner and I split, but within days I began to understand that it was happening for me, and it was actually the very event that gave me the insights around fine-tuning my purpose and niche. In short, the breakup propelled me forward. So far forward that I actually gained all of the clarity, confidence, and confirmation that I was seeking heading into the program around leaving my corporate job. I resigned from Corporate America and launched my own business just before my one-year ACTV8 start-date anniversary.
