Julia’s Personal Story….
Welcome to my world…
So this is me, (on the left) the one standing on stage in front of all those people. Now you might be thinking to yourself…. wow, she must have been born a confident, natural outgoing person and being on stage is easy for her.
Well the truth is, it is easy now but it wasn’t always that way!
I grew up as a shy teenage girl and I wanted to be on stage more than anything. I could picture myself on stage, I imagined myself on stage and in the privacy of my own bedroom I would pretend I was on stage in front of hundreds of people. But when it came to actually getting on stage it was the most uncomfortable thing ever, it was my biggest fear.
I joined my high school choir but dropped out because I just couldn’t handle the pressure of singing in front of my classmates. I still really wanted to perform and when the opportunity came to join a performing equestrian stunt riding team, I did. I was really good at it and I excelled. I toured and performed for several years and finally gained enough confidence to give singing another try.
I started out singing a song here and there with local bands and later got a few singing gigs at local fairs and festivals singing to pre-recorded music tracks. Finally after years of developing my stage confidence, I formed my own band. I actually got so good at selling myself on and off stage that I was booking our band and getting good paying gigs when other musicians were struggling to get gigs at all.
I ended up recording and releasing 3 music CD’s, I performed on television and radio, and even became the spokesperson for a major California casino where I was on stage with big Hollywood and Nashville stars in front of thousands.
After 20 amazing years in the entertainment industry I started to feel like something was missing. I wanted to do more, I wanted to do something meaningful.
Well it just so happened that I live in an area where there were a lot of homeless animals. So I started picking them up and taking them home and soon realized that to really make a difference and help a lot of animals I needed to more.
Having an entrepreneurial spirit and with my experience in the entertainment industry, I decided to start my own non-profit animal rescue organization. In just a few years, our little organization rescued and re-homed over 1,000 homeless pets.
As much as I loved helping animals and I was making a real difference, I started longing to be on stage again. I knew I didn’t want to go back to singing so instead I did something that combined my desire to make a difference with my stage experience and I launched my On Stage With Julia Training programs where I use my business expertise and stage experience to help women entrepreneurs Excel at Public Speaking, Master Their Videos and Uplevel Their Current Business or Launch a Dream Business.
My clients are talented, smart, amazing women who have a desire to make a difference in the world!
And as for helping animals? After having run the non-profit for several years, I realize that I can actually have a greater impact in the world for both animals and people if I do exactly what I am doing now, help heart-centered entrepreneurs get out there with confidence and share their message.
So this is where I am today, on my unique and exciting journey. I love my work, I love my clients and I feel incredibly blessed to be doing such satisfying work!
