Hello and welcome. I’m Carmen Perez, your Wellbeing Messenger. I am dedicated to helping you achieve radical personal success and create a life worth living filled with an abundance of health, wealth, and happiness.
I work with high achieving women want to live with passion, purpose, and play so they may achieve the success they desire without compromising more than they have to, to achieve it. I teach them how to reclaim their time and calm the chaos so they can transform the way they experience their world. I became a mentor for high-achieving women because too often I saw women living without abundance in their lives.
Oh, and newsflash: having abundance doesn’t equal having a lot of money. Chances are you feel good about the size of your paycheck. But something still feels like it’s missing.
Having abundance is about feeling well and being well. It’s about balance – being there for others, but also never forgetting to be there for yourself. It’s about finding inspiration every day. It’s about slowing down and carving out time from your hectic, 24-hour schedule.
Simply put: it’s about creating a life worth living. Life doesn’t have to be hard. And I’m going to show you how it can be easy. Scratch that, phenomenal.
At Wellbeing Messenger, we have a simple mission: to inspire women to go after what they want, to discover what makes them feel alive and fills their heart, so they can achieve true success without sacrificing their health, wealth, and happiness.
A Bit About Me
I used to feel overworked, overcommitted, and overwhelmed. And boy, did it cause a wake-up call.
Here are some numbers for you:
- Only 7% of the population has achieved well-being in their lives
- 8 out of 10 women say they feel stressed, exhausted and guilty, and since the start of the “Women’s Movement” the “happiness” levels of women have steadily gone down.
- Fewer than 20% of women are satisfied with the amount of time they spend on themselves.
- Over 60% of the population report living with chronic stress
- Chronic stress can increase your chance of a heart attack by 80%.
Scary stuff. Do you see yourself in those numbers? I know I did.
I worked as a commercial real estate paralegal for about 20 years. I was very proud of my career. I’d overcome a lot in my life and I felt like I was setting a great example for my children that if you work hard, you’ll get a nice house with nice furniture and a nice vacation every now and then. But, if I was really honest with myself, I wasn’t thriving – I was just surviving. There are only so many hours in the day, right?
Then, in 2008 I acquired Lyme disease which further complicated my health since I was also epileptic. The regular bouts of pain and fatigue further prevented me from living out the authentic, heart-centered life I so deeply craved.
While trying to find my new “normal,” I felt completely lost. I lost my identity and had no clue how to get it back. And the resources available to me were scarce and, quite frankly, not very helpful. The disease forced me to slow down and really figure out if I was living life the way I wanted to. If I was really living at all.
So I sought out answers. After years of analyzing the studies, reading the books, and speaking to the experts about physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, I’ve learned a few things. I’ve learned that by reclaiming our time and calming the chaos, we can transform the way we experience our world so we may deliberately create thriving lifestyles filled with quality, meaning, and connection. Today I have a unique understanding of the difficulties involved in recommitting to hope and personal wellbeing.
I’ve seen the doctors, I’ve read the books, and I’ve lived it. I’ve discovered how to take control and create the life of balance and joy I’ve always dreamt of, and I want to share that with you.
So, I’m asking you to join me on this journey of wellbeing.
The best way to start is with my step by step guide to stop living by default and start living by design. It’s called the 11 Steps to Creating Priorities for Fulfillment and Meaning and with it, you can achieve anything you desire. I know. That’s a big promise. Know I stand behind it. I am here to be of service.
Here’s What People Are Saying
Working with you was awesome. I felt that you helped me hold myself accountable, gave me step by step actions to take that made sense and did not feel so overwhelming. I feel like I have a plan on what I need to do and how to do it. As well, you are such a calming and wise influence. As much as our time together gave me practical tools to help my business grow, it also gave me the emotional tools to feel calmer and break through the resistance I was experiencing.
Prior to making a decision to work with a mentor, I was all over the map (literally). I had no clue where to focus my efforts, or how to focus my efforts. Frustration and confusion filled my marketing efforts, and as for effective productivity, my idea was post-it notes all over the place – sheer chaos!
Then I started and voila! I had templates (and templates that made sense – not some random pieces of paper) to help me plan out my strategies; by week, by month, and most importantly by projects that I want to get done. I now have a way to plan that works for me and makes me so much more productive.
Carmen spoke in simple and easy to understand language. I knew from the beginning that she ‘felt’ me (and not in a weird sort of way LOL) and gave me the information in a way that I could understand, and she provided the resources and tools so I could apply it immediately! I didn’t feel left out in the world all by my lonesome, it was comforting to me to know that I had the ability to ask questions and receive guidance. I feel empowered, and I am now making big leaps. I have Carmen to thank!
