    Episode 63 - From Laid Off to Dream Life ft. Megan McAvoy Matte

    Episode 63 - From Laid Off to Dream Life ft. Megan McAvoy Matte

    If you dislike your job, you've been laid off, or you've been struggling with your purpose: this episode is for you! Megan McAvoy Matte is a mindset and business coach.  During a terrible economy in 2008 (plus a new mortgage commitment), she was laid off from her corporate job and therefore started her first business as a financial advisor just to survive.  Despite the odds stacked against her, she built a crazy successful business and even won sales awards.  Realizing the work was unfulfilling, she moved from Boston to Colorado with her husband, sold her financial advisory business, launched her dream as a mindset and business coach, and is now expecting her first baby.  Her personal life motto is, "I do what I want to do, when I want to do it"!

Inspiring

It didn’t take long to truly feel what Davina was saying. The message she’s conveying comes across genuinely and with honest authenticity. Keep it coming!

Davina is an inspiration!

So many of her episodes I feel like she’s talking directly to me or about me. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one that has lived through some of these struggles. It’s refreshing she has made so much negativity into a positive! That’s all the therapy I need! <3
