HERE TO HELP YOU GET OBSESSED

Hey, I'm Linda Bello

Entrepreneur, Success Coach, & Dreamer for YOU -

The freedom-seeking aspiring entrepreneur who is ready to design a business you can't shut up about!

I’ve become obsessed with the idea that we should be earning to live, not living to earn and I’m here to show you it’s possible.

You may be feeling a little uneasy, I remember the feeling too.  I remember feeling like success was just a silly ole dream that other OTHER people could achieve. I felt like my story wouldn’t impact enough lives (aka - sucked) and that I needed to have everything figured out BEFORE I started my business. HA - silly me! ;)

But I was over living a life that didn’t feel true to me, and maybe you feel like that too.

What I want you to know is you're a lot more amazing (and probably a little weird) than you think and you have something unique to offer this world simply because you’re you.  And there’s NOTHING more freeing than doing work that you love.

When I started my Success Coaching business, I was in thousands of dollars in student loan debt, in the middle of moving to a new city, and new to business coaching.  I put thousands of dollars of money I didn’t have on a credit card and I have never felt more SCARED but more EXCITED in my life.

My fear of regret was stronger than my fear of failure, so I worked my booty off to make it happen.

I knew I could have waited and done everything on my own, but I was over my own bullshit ;).  I always knew deep down I was made for something BIG, and that THIS was my chance to make it happen.

Since taking my big leap, I was able to leave my 9-5 within MONTHS of starting my business,  I have tripled my 9-5 salary, and i am on my way to make six figures before the end of 2016.  And guess what... this was all done working less than 40 hours a week on my biz! What i want you to know is that this is all possible for you too and even sooner than you think!!

Long Story


SO,what's my story?

Long Story


SO,what's my story?

Dani-Cowan-Photography-Denver-Lifestyle-Branding-Photoshoot1.jpg

Born and raised on Long Island, NY I was taught to hustle.

Not necessarily from my family but my surroundings and the people around me.  You know- seeing men and women in business suits- continuously looking at their wrists, running towards the train platform to catch the 40 min ride to the Big City.  This is what I thought life was all about even though I felt so disconnected from it.

SO I DID EVERYTHING I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO TO GET AHEAD IN LIFE:

- I started working at 16
- I got good grades
- I got my college degree
- And landed a job in the corporate world shortly after


BEING THE FIRST PERSON IN MY FAMILY TO EVER GET A COLLEGE DEGREE, PEOPLE WERE PROUD OF ME, EVERYTHING LOOKED PERFECT, BUT IN THE INSIDE I KNEW I WAS MADE FOR SO MUCH MORE.
 


When I graduated college I kept thinking back to my job at 16. I worked for a small business and I was in love with my bosses lifestyle.  He could take off whenever he wanted to go to the gym or to grab lunch with his friends.  If something came up in his life he didn’t have to ask for anyone’s permission to leave, he could just go.  I knew I wanted to create that lifestyle for myself but I didn't know how to make it possible.

So shortly after college I moved out to Colorado to get some inspiration.  (The dramatic version of getting a haircut and claiming myself a "New Me")

And oh my goodness was I inspired!  First of all, the mountains, have you seen them?! Not only that, I saw people being active outdoors, when people talked to you they looked you in the eye and cared about what you had to say,  conversations in coffee shops were about self care and growth versus in NY where often times all you hear is people talking about one another. I thought "this is it, I finally had found my journey, I have finally found a place where I can relate with people!"

I moved to Colorado without a plan, no job to arrive to and no home to welcome me.  It was just, me, my man, our dog, and our cars.  When we arrived, I spent my days tweaking my resume, going on interviews and searching for a home.  I looked at the mountains and thought "once this job and house hunt is over, I'll get some time to play with you."

Well the job/house hunt ended, I was super excited to start my life and explore the outdoors, but I found myself even more restricted than I was before.

I moved all the way across the country to do the same thing I tried to get away from.

Even with all the inspiration around me I took the comfortable route.  It was a job that paid the bills with health insurance, PTO, and all the employee perks.  I spent my days counting down the hours until I could leave and my weeks counting down the days to the weekend.  By the time the weekend came, I had no energy left to even enjoy this new state.  I would pretend I was living the life to my NY friends and family by snapping pictures of the mountains on the side of the road, but this was far from my reality. And it wasn't like things were bad, I felt guilty that I felt this way - I honestly started to think something was wrong with me.  Like why couldn't I be grateful for what I had?  

BUT I WAS OVER SETTLING

I was over jeopardizing my creativity and talents and building someone else's dream.  I wanted to use my creativity and talents to bring happiness in the world, but here I was telling people the best checking account for their money.  I used to wish for success, wait for success, and watch other people become successful, but I NEVER took action on it. 

IT WAS TIME TO TAKE ACTION, IT WAS TIME TO STOP WISHING I WAS FURTHER ALONG IN LIFE.

And that's when the world of coaching came in.  I found a coach, a mentor, someone I could look up to that made big things happen in her life. She was someone who was where I wanted to be in life and I knew she would give me the tools to get me from where I wished to be to actually living it.  Working with her was a risk, I invested into her program with money I didn’t even have but I knew my fear of regret was stronger than my fear of failure.   And I’m so glad I did.
