Freedom Cipher Episode 10: Meet Alissa Finerman

by Aisha DaCosta on February 6, 2012

You did everything you were told to do

You went to college; received a good education; and landed a six-figure job

You’ve made it! Or so you thought…

The days are long and grueling.

You wake up at 4am to arrive at work by 6am

You give it all you have for 12 hours

Go home exhausted and drained

Tired and weak you crawl into bed

Fall asleep just to wake up and repeat the cycle again

Weekdays seem like an eternity

Your weekends are always too short

You feel empty yet compelled to do it again and again

You may even get a raise but it never feels like enough

And then after 60+ hour work weeks

You get laid off! WTH!

You pour everything you have into something that makes you feel empty

only to realize that there was nothing there in the first place. Now what?

Meet Alissa Finerman, Business/Life Coach, motivational speaker and author of “Living in Your Top 1%: Nine Essential Rituals to Achieve Your Ultimate Life Goals”.  Alissa traded in a Wall Street career so she could give back and inspire others to do what they love and raise the bar in their life. Her goal is to help others find the inner drive, motivation, and clarity to design and execute key personal and professional goals. She is known for her clarity, energy, and ability to redefine what’s possible.

You live but you’re not living?

You give but you’re not getting what you deserve?

If you are not in love with the life you are living, find out how to live life by your design and start living in your top 1%!

Thanks Nisey! Alissa is amazing. I love her story. She just proves that freedom is in doing what you are destined to do and the ultimate satisfaction is with living your life’s purpose.
