About Heather Filipowicz
You’re on this page for a reason so let me say, ‘Hi’. I’m so glad you’re here.
I believe that every person has a dream on their heart and in their mind that they want to go after, yet life has created layers of labels and fears that stand in the way.
I’m here to change that.
6 years ago I was living a life of ‘shoulds’. I had accomplished everything in life that I ‘should’ do. Successful career. Husband. Son. Colonial house in the suburbs. A daily commute in my suit and high heels. Family and friends living near by.
I was living the good life by many people’s standards.
Then something shifted. That something was my heart.
I felt like I was living someone else’s life and I couldn’t do it anymore.
I read books, worked with coaches, listened to podcasts, dove head first into online course after online course and the plan started to form.
We quit our jobs, sold our home and packed up the moving van.
We moved 1,200 miles from Buffalo, New York to Tampa, Florida. We left the snow for our dream of palm trees and the smell of salt water air.
I donated my suits, launched my business and set up my office in my home. I’m at school pick up and drop off and am growing more comfortable in my skin with each passing day.
I write words in the hopes of inspiring you to live the most amazing version of life for you. I share my stories, and the stories of other amazing women, so that we can see ourselves in others and know that we’re all more alike than different. Some stories are messy and raw and scary. The more scared I am to press ‘publish’ the more I know that I have to.
I work with women so that they too can peel away the layers of ‘shoulds’ life has left on them to remember who they truly are. The word ‘coach’ doesn’t quite cover it for me. I see myself as a combination of a dream secret keeper, motivational mentor and action catalyst all rolled into one. I listen to your secrets, ask questions that are a bit of tough love and then you get to work. I’m there to cheer you on every step of the way.
I bring a bit of spiritual sassiness, or ‘woo-woo’ per say. I believe that the Universe is always conspiring for us, that we’re exactly where we’re supposed to be at any given time and that love is a spiritual practice. I’m a yoga teacher in training and I’m striving to live my life off the mat in the same way I do on the mat. Because the entire world is my yoga mat. Love wins.
I have pink highlights in my curly hair, I wear leggings and yoga pants as my uniform, a glass of crisp cold New Zealand sav blanc is a spiritual practice and my mala beads have replaced my lapel pins. Much to my Mom’s dismay, I swear in my writing and in real life. (All that soap in the mouth when I was a kid didn’t work. Sorry, Mom.) I’m a yoga teacher, Community leader for a group of remarkable women and I’ve never met a microphone I didn’t love.
I’m highly sensitive and have a heart the size of the ocean. I no longer see that as an ‘issue’ that needs to be ‘fixed’, I believe it’s one of my greatest gifts.
The dreams that I’m currently chasing are to inspire as many women as possible to pursue their dreams through my words and coaching, to finally love and accept my body at any shape and size and to write my first book.
Thank you for being here. Wanna chat further, email me or grab me on social media. I’d love to hear from you.
May you believe in your dreams each and every day, and when your belief falters, I’ll be here to remind you.
