Welcome to Barefoot Jewel!
This site is a work in progress, as am I. Barefoot Jewel is me, I’m Julie and also called “Jewel” and I am spending the rest of my life living in the most natural, authentic way I can and embracing my unique “barefoot” self!!!
In 2011 I quit my safe, well paying cubicle job because I couldn’t stand the idea of being there for one more day. It was a scary moment, but the best thing I ever did! Since that very terrifying step, things have fallen into place and I’m well on my way to creating my ideal life.
I have been loving my job as a pet sitter for the past 7 years. If you had asked me, at any time in my life “What would you do if money was no object and you could do whatever you wanted?” I would have said “I would do something with animals.” Well, here I am doing it!! For the first few years after starting this business, I found it very difficult to believe I was being paid to do something I absolutely love doing!
Now I am finally starting to get it. I am a certified health coach and recently became certified as a life coach through Mary Morrissey’s DreamBuilder program. In the coaching program, one of the key concepts is that the universe is abundant and everything is energy. When we focus on things we love and what we desire, the universe strives to give those things to us. Once I quit my cubicle job and stopped focusing on NOT wanting that, my thoughts turned to what COULD I do now. The universe spoke and I listened, and followed my heart to start 1st Rate Pet Services with my significant other in 2012, just less than 1 year after I’d quit that cubicle job!
I still LOVE being a pet sitter, but my heart is telling me there is more for me to do. Once I found Mary Morrissey and the DreamBuilder program, I knew I had to become a coach so I can help other people begin to live the kind of life they were born to be living. So Barefoot Jewel is me…living the life I was born to live!! It can also be you…once you begin to focus on your own natural, unique gifts, talents and interests.
So stay tuned for more!!! I can’t wait to see you create the life you were born to live!!!
