Hello! I’m Lorraine Robles, thank you for stopping by.
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.
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. 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.
As I continued to wear the “training/skill enhancement/project management” hat, assisting businesses and their virtual team members. One day I put my thinking cap on as I wanted more…helping businesses and entrepreneurs meet their ultimate goals on a higher level.
Something was missing. What can I do to make a bigger impact? How can I help those on a more personal, deeper level that will help them grow in business and personal life?
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 and life.
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. My husband was coming home from work mentally drained and no energy to truly focus and spend quality time with our kids. 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.
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?”
