This week's guest on the Fearless, Inspired and Free Podcast is Aprill Edwards. Aprill is a Transformational Coach who helps women lose the physical, mental and emotional weight she feels is holding them back from living their best, most bold, most intentional life. She is SHE.E.O. of Because She Matters. The mission is to equip and empower women and girls, primarily of color, by helping them get healthy, happy, healed and whole--from a whole person's perspective.
Aprill helps women identify and overcome the obstacles in their life holding them back from living their most fulfilled life—a life that is soulfully aligned, full of power and purpose. Aprill helps them break generational curses, broken mindsets and learned patterns and behaviors that keep them playing small in some areas of life instead of fully launching into a life that they may only dream about today.
Aprill uses not only her education, professional certifications and experience, but also considers herself most qualified because she is a certified overcomer of the very issues that she serves and supports other women in today. From attempted suicide, teen pregnancy, emotional and physical abuse, toxic relationships, bankruptcy, and the death of her mother when she was only 13 years old, Aprill’s resilience, determination and life experience allow her to serve others in a way uncommon to most transformational leaders.
Aprill holds a MBA. She is a Certified Life/Success Coach, Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, has multiple certifications in Nutrition, Certified Transformation Coach, Certified Diversity & Inclusion Specialist and Certified Program Manager.
Tune in to hear why Aprill says "I AM my client. I AM the women I serve". She goes on to discuss her own life of repressed trauma after the death of her mother and never hearing her father verbalize the love he had for her, although his love language was through action. Aprill knew it was time to begin her journey of self-discovery when she "hit rock bottom". She says, "It's not that I didn't like what I saw, I just didn't know her".
Aprill's powerful story of releasing trauma, facing her own toxicity, setting "strong boundaries" and challenging then overcoming generational curses to become the best version of herself and the coach women could relate, learn and grow from is transparent and projects the authenticity we all can appreciate.
