Leading your life means making a conscious decision to get up each day and intentionally choose what you do, who you are, and how you show up in the world. Everyone has to power to lead their lives, but most people are letting life lead them. If that is you, recognize you have the power to make a new decision. This is your life.. lead it.
Corliss is a dedicated Mother of three, a loving partner and a leader with heart. But like you, there is more to the story than meets the eye.
Corliss grew up on the family farm dreaming of a successful career and ‘happily ever after’. She achieved massive success as an entrepreneur, developed a sales business with over $21 million in sales, was blessed with three children, but things were far from the dream she wished for. Low self-esteem had her relentlessly trying to prove her worth, landed her in dysfunctional relationships and constant turmoil. Surviving became a way of life and keeping up appearances was exhausting. She was tired, unfulfilled and scared.
YOU ARE ONE DECISION AWAY FROM A TOTALLY DIFFERENT LIFE
“I had an unwritten plan that by the time I was 40 I would be ‘living the dream.’ Instead I found myself getting divorced, in financial despair and in a career that wasn’t fulfilling me like it once did. My kids had grown more independent and I realized I had lived most of my life for everyone and everything else. I lacked purpose and direction and wanted more than I was living. I’m not sure how it happened, but somewhere along the way I stopped leading my life and I became a victim to life circumstance. I wasn’t choosing my path; I was accepting whatever life gave me and it left me feeling powerless and defeated. ”
IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO BECOME THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE.
At a stage of life most people accept autopilot, Corliss made the brave decision to break the pattern and redesign her life. She embraced the idea that her life was her responsibility, and if it was going to change, she needed to change it.
She invested in her personal development travelling to destinations all over North America to receive training from speakers like Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Lewis Howes, Rachel Hollis and Carolin Soldo. Corliss believes the best leaders lead by example and that meant she would “go first”.
Over the course of two years, Corliss became a certified Success Principles Coach, wrote her first best-selling book, Lead Your Life; How to Live With Purpose, Passion and Confidence, had more than one hundred participants in her vision board workshops, hundreds attend her conferences and designed/ facilitated a Masterclass program for more than one hundred women. Her newest offering is the elite ‘Next Level Life’ for Masterclass graduates which begins with a retreat weekend. These programs share a common objective; to empower people to lead their lives, with purpose.
“Personal growth is never-ending and true leaders are life-long learners. The most visionary leaders recognize that if you develop the person, it not only affects their personal life, but it reflects on how they show up at work, and what they contribute there. With this in mind, I will keep learning and investing in myself to bring the best to those we serve.”
MAKING HER LIFE MATTER
“We all go through hard times and some suffer more than others. In my own experience, I have learned to appreciate the good times because of the bad times. It has been in my darkest hours I found the greatest gifts. I learned how strong I am through adversity, to cherish life through suffering loss, and that I empower myself by taking responsibility for my life. I have become more confident because I have learned to love and accept myself. Aging is a privilege and is denied to many. I feel blessed for the opportunity to live and intend to make my life matter by sharing my experiences and knowledge to help others. My purpose is directly connected to serving.” As the Founder of Corliss Co. Consulting Inc., Corliss has made it her mission to help women take back their power and live to their potential- with purpose.
