BREAK Up with FEAR and ANXIETY image

My name is Lakisha R. Austin (Coach LA). I am a Bostonian. I live in Mattapan. MA. I am a phenomenal black woman, that’s me! I am the proud single mother of 16 year old black son. I have a unique perspective because I am a recovered people pleaser who happens to be a licensed independent clinical worker (therapist )and a life coach. I also have a masters’ in business administration.

Most people don’t know that I purchased my home at the age of 26. I have also worked with several networking marketing businesses. I am a former financial services representative and a bank manager. I have been a foster parent and a youth mentor.

I am a domestic violence survivor and advocate for prevention.

Despite all these accolades and triumphs of resiliency, and my friends and peers telling me how dope I am. I did not feel like I was enough, I struggled with wanting people to like me. I struggled with my confidence. I would do the most for everyone but myself. I was afraid and feared failing. After completing my master’s in clinical social work in 2015, I understood that I had imposter syndrome and I was a people pleaser.

Fast forward…It would take me five more years to take a stand and truly honor my truth.

In 2020, I had to pivot and get in alignment with what I truly wanted for my life. My first order of business was practicing some radical self care!

So, what did I do?

I made BOLD moves:

1. I took a month off from my full-time position.

2. I decided after that month to resign and BET on ME!

OMG, it was the best decision I could have ever made.

I had a dream of starting my private practice!

So what did I do?

In January 2021, I gave birth to Resiliency & Optimism Changes Lives LLC.

I rented office space.

I got focused and worked for myself as I had once worked for others.

During a pandemic, I earned 6-figures in my first year working for myself!

I ate better, exercised more, & I lost 25 pounds.

I saved 10,000K.

Raised my credit score from 560 to 704.

Establish Business Credit.

That taught me to always BET on SELF!

I started a new program for women called The F.E.M.E. Project 2021, and a course called #BETonSELF to help people build their confidence, say learn to say No without guilt and shame.

I’ve learned how to be a master networker! What I know is I’m good at building relationships!

I’m thrilled to be a recovered people pleaser, to be living my truth, in my zen, doing what I love and controlling my wobble as described by #AbrahamHicks !

Looking forward to helping you #BETonSELF too!
