You are in the right place, to figure out how to survive your transitions. I will guide you along the way.
You may wonder how I can help? Let me share my story with you.
Grab a cup of coffee, a snack, sit back, relax and listen in.
My name is Andrea.
I am a lifelong learner who is passionate about growing in every way that I can.
I'm good at planning,organizing and analyzing.
These skills have gotten me through the many transitions I've had through life.
These skills also meant that every time I went through a transition I used it as a learning opportunity. I began to accumulate tools to help me quickly learn, heal and move through a transition.
Over time I began to use the tools with my friends to help them through their life transitions.
After my most recent transition, my divorce. I decided it was time to make it my career to help other people through transitions.
So you might be wondering exactly what I've been through? Learn more about my story here.
This is the three step process to get you back on your feet faster and better off.
In this phase we dive into what went wrong and what went right. At the same time taking the chance to learn about ourselves. Self discovery is about determining how we impacted the transition and who we have become after. Every event changes us, so we want to know and understand ourselves.
In this phase we work on changing the negative patterns we discovered and mourning our loss. Most life transitions involve some form of mourning. Here we make ourselves better, honor what we are missing and make sure we don't keep making the same mistakes.
We can't stay stuck in our transition. Once you have done enough work learning and healing it is time to move on with life. In this phase we work to help you understand exactly what you want from the future. Then create plans to help you achieve them.
Did you hate confusing math problems in school? Do you hate dumb jokes?
Well, I have a combo for you.
A wealth coach, a wedding planner, a former expat, and a transition coach walk into a bar. The order going to the bartender is a vodka sour. Who had the cocktail?
All of them, because they were all the same person, Andrea Travillian.
Yes, I have been a wealth coach, a wedding planner, lived overseas (Australia), and am now a life transition coach. And more.
You could say that just in careers alone, I have mastered the transition.
Here are the more formal details of my life:
My official training is in finance with a degree from the University of Iowa. Upon completion I worked the following (in both the US and Australia):
During this time I also completed my MBA from Creighton University.
In 2002 I left the corporate world, because I was tired of being micro-managed and started an event planning company. (Because I wanted to micro-manage others!)
This was a natural jump for me because not only was I a natural planner. But while in school I did about every hospitality job. From bartending, to waiting tables to being a restaurant manager.
While loving the event planning world the hours did not fit my family goals. Thus in 2007, I planned my final wedding and opened a bookkeeping business.
That bookkeeping business morphed into a wealth coaching business for small business owners.
Along the way I got my coaching certificate, from the International Coaching Academy.
In 2017 after a series of major transitions that pushed me to rediscover myself. I decided it was time to assist others in getting through transitions. While evolving themselves to a new level for the next phase of life.
That is when Aspirify, Inc. was born.
