As recently as 2004, Gina Ratliffe was a psychotherapist who was trading dollars for hours as she managed a counseling clinic, handling every aspect of the business, working 75 hours a week while serving a full caseload.
Gina decided to pursue her dream of being a life coach.
That’s when Gina had what she calls her “pizza moment”
“Nobody died, and nobody lost a limb, but it was awful. I was working so hard to get clients and it was just exhausting. One Sunday night I was feeling sorry for myself and decided to treat myself to a pizza. Before placing my order, I checked my account balance, only to find I didn’t even have enough money to order a pie. I’d hit an all-time low. Here I was, an intelligent, independent woman who had worked at the White House, the Supreme Court and Harvard’s Institute of Politics, had earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, and who was now working to help people live great lives …and I couldn’t even afford to order from Dominos.”
