Hi! I’m Robyn Hartzell, and maybe your story is like mine. It has several plot twists, unexpected characters, and definitely plenty of lessons! Like yours, my story can’t be categorized into a single genre. My life does not consist of only work, only my business, or only my marriage. I'm not only a wife, widow, entrepreneur, or educator. I am all of those.
I know how it feels to be an independent, accomplished, high-achieving woman and still struggle with that voice saying “Do you really think you can do this? Are you good enough?” or be in a career that you have worked your whole life to build and are proud of....then wonder, “Is this really what I want?” I also know what it feels like to take the unconventional road, overcome loss, embrace change, and design a life and career that makes me think “If I can do this....I can do anything!”
Maybe you can relate….I always knew that I wanted to be involved in work that made an impact in the world, and for me, that was in education. I spent most of my early career developing my expertise, earning my Master’s degree, and building the skills needed to move to the next rung of the ladder. I enjoyed my work, had a fulfilling marriage, and was racked with constant anxiety.
Then everything turned upside down...
At 38, after 15 years of a great marriage, I found myself a widow. My husband died unexpectedly, and in one day, my entire life changed. I went to work like any other day and came home to a completely different world. I found myself staring down a road I never intended.
My priorities changed.
Suddenly, I found myself re-evaluating my normal. I just simply couldn’t give the energy to things that caused so much anxiety before. Waging the battle of grief made me FEARLESS in so many ways. Work was a lifeline, but the reward of it was changing for me. I was becoming a different person who needed a different kind of career.
It was time to reimagine my future.
My drive and internal compass were still intact; they were just shifting to new directions. I still wanted to make an impact and knew that teaching would be at the heart of anything I did. So, I took a leap, began my own consulting and coaching business, and …
This is where our roads meet.
