Carin Rockind


I’ve wanted to play “big” my entire life. I’ve known that I was here for something – to make a difference, to do something meaningful. You are too.We all are.

Unfortunately, I let perfectionism, other people’s opinions, “shoulds”, practicality, and fear get in the way, and I lost myself.

Maybe you can relate. When you forget who you are, you become unhappy.  You feel lost. You feel stuck. You feel like something’s missing. Because it is… YOU!

But you can discover yourself again. You can uncover your purpose, create an intentional life, and shine. I’ve done it and so can you.

Every single one of us is meant to shine. You have all you need. Every challenge has given you strengths. Every joy shows you what you want. I will help you discover your strengths, uncover your purpose, shift your negative thoughts, and take courageous action toward creating a life you love.
