In this episode I’m speaking with Erica Carrico about how you can discover your life’s purpose and leave the 9 to 5 and start a business that aligns with who they are. I can’t wait for you to hear their story and how they discovered that waiting for a life changing moment is not the only time you should take to rebuild the life you want.



My purpose here on earth is to help you live yours. I’m an Award-Winning Life Purpose & Business Coach (International Coach of the Year 2020) for awakening souls who are ready to transform their lives by discovering their life purpose, creating six-figure businesses, while lucratively expressing their own soul’s purpose. It’s my mission to help soulful entrepreneurs uplevel their businesses, ditch their 9-5’s, and make incredible money on their spiritual path so they can finally earn a living doing what they absolutely love… what they were put on earth to do.

I spent 4 years in and out of jobs thinking one day I would wake up and my purpose would simply “appear”. Surprise – that didn’t happen! So, I decided to just pick a career because I felt society’s pressure of that’s what I should be doing. Fast forward 5 years – even though I was pretty successful in corporate recruitment, I knew deep down it was NOT FOR ME. I was living a lie. For a long period of my life, I was telling my heart to “shush… be grateful for what you have.” I felt insane for not loving my life. I was living in Australia, working for a top international recruitment agency, entertaining clients in 5-star restaurants, and earning more money than I needed.

But here’s the thing – I wasn’t just unhappy – I WAS MISERABLE. I was so stressed out and sobbing into my pillow every Sunday night because I knew Monday was coming. Why? Because… I was not living my purpose. I was not living my truth, and I knew it. There was no greater meaning behind my career. I remember telling my husband one night “my career is literally destroying my soul.” THAT WAS IT. Something had to change. I deserved better. I decided my life meant more to me and I wasn’t going to settle any longer. So I took a leap of faith, invested in myself by hiring a life coach, and that’s when everything changed.

Within one year of launching my coaching business, I’’d been featured in over 15 media publications, was being invited to speak internationally, and was fully booked with a 2-month waitlist. I had more than doubled my salary, and was able to leave my corporate career! Being able to turn in my resignation, knowing I was stepping into ultimate freedom was the most incredible feeling ever! My family was able to move back to Colorado, I finally could work the hours I wanted to work, spend summers traveling and at the pool with my kids, and my most favorite part… is I never have to worry about “taking time off.”

I fill my days with soul-mate clients and life-changing conversations, speaking on stages I used to only dream of speaking on (virtual stages now!), and enjoying my free time in adventurous Colorado. Within 4 years, I ‘ve created the life of my dreams, while fulfilling my life purpose at the same time.

About your host, Christine

Transition and Lifestyle Coach, Host of The Corporate Escapists TV Show & Podcast, Speaker & Educator. In a past life, I was a corporate queen, earning the big bucks & working my way up that ladder. From the outside, I had it all, but I felt completely dead inside. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom that I really discovered what was missing from my life. I realised I had no idea who I was.

What lit me up. What was setting my soul on fire? What was my passion in life? But after years of doing the inner work, I have rebuilt my life and now I want to help you do the same.
