Hello! I’m Lorraine Robles, thank you for stopping by and being part of my community.
My husband and I live in Fort Worth, Texas with our three kids. Born and raised in Southern California, we made the difficult decision to move to Texas in 2010, offering our children better educational opportunities and quality of life.
Back in 1996, I started working for a small Medical Transcription company. Starting at the bottom, I worked hard, focused and learned as much as I could which opened the doors to life-changing opportunities. Years later the mom and pop shop turned into one of the largest Medical Transcription companies in the world.
With each hat I wore, I found myself training and teaching supervisors, new employees and/or enhancing their skill level. My managerial position eventually became virtual. After working in an office environment for so many years and having hospital clients and employees in 4 different time zones, I had to self-teach discipline, project & time management. I have to say luckily it became second nature to me once I got my routine down and truly enjoyed working from a home office and still do.
After 12 amazing years with the company, unfortunately, there was a reduction in force and you know what that means. Having young children and living in a state with no family I was determined to find something I can do at home.
There wasn’t as many “at home” opportunities as there is now. I turned my attention to e-Commerce, dropshipping, social media, marketing and creating websites. It was a whole new ballgame for me to say the least. As challenging and scary as it was, I kept a positive attitude along with a clear vision and decided to go into business for myself. With the support of my husband, I have no regrets and extremely thankful for every learning obstacle that comes my way, as experiencing the good and the bad is what has made me today and that’s priceless.
I continued to wear the “training/skill enhancement/project management” hat, assisting other businesses and their virtual team members. One day I put my thinking cap on as I wanted more…helping other small businesses and entrepreneurs meet their ultimate goals on a higher level.
But that wasn’t enough, something was missing. What can I do to make a bigger impact? How can I dig deeper within and help those on a more personal level? I realized not only can I utilize my coaching strategies and knowledge towards the business aspect of things but also on a personal level.
In today’s fast-paced, hectic and complicated world, it has made it more difficult for us humans to truly understand ourselves and how we can create and maintain a Healthy Mindset at all times instead of allowing toxic thoughts run our mind.
Being a mom of 3, one being a tweenager at the time of this writing, a college student who still lives at home and a 9-year-old, I had to personally change my own mindset. I wasn’t happy with the way I felt mentally nor physically. I was emotionally exhausted on a daily basis. Not to mention I’m married to one of the most stubborn, competitive but lovable man in Texas. I decided to make an adjustment with-in my household to help all of us handle and understand our emotions better. I want my children to grow-up to be strong-minded adults who can learn to conquer any obstacle that may come their way, how to balance and control their mind, and not be afraid to face the challenges that will allow them to achieve their goals and peak happiness & performance.
Now, this is not about parenting, but how to embrace and handle stressful and difficult situations that life brings us. How enhancing positive, effective communication can make a HUGE difference in your daily life.
I figured I’m not the only one feeling the pressure of everyday family life. Why not share and expand my coaching practices to a relatable audience.
Since I practice what I preach at home, I’m more patient before expressing my initial response, understanding how our powerful mind works and what I can do to remain in a healthy state is golden! My children practice self-awareness and acknowledge their feelings, and yes, even my husband is making progress.
Embracing a healthy and strong Mental Edge is a life-changing experience and I’m enjoying the ride!
A little more about me…
I have a passion for cooking, the kitchen is my happy place.
I’m a Green Tea drinker who has recently fallen in love with London Fog Earl Grey Tea with Lavender
I can watch The Godfather movies over and over again
I watch scary movies with my eyes closed
I’m the eldest of 3
I don’t like going to the mall but enjoy a trip to the grocery store
I never stop learning, I always have a book in my hand (relatable to leadership, psychology and neuroscience)
I’m afraid of heights (mind over matter is out the door when it comes to this)
I prefer the winter months rather than the hot Texas summer
I’m left-handed (when I was a little one my grandma tried to make me write with my right hand, thinking being left handed was a bad thing) I’m proud of being a lefty!
Every day, I ask “How can I be a better person for myself and others?”
