Tell me a little bit about you. 

Hi, I’m Camy Kennedy and I’m a Life Coach teaching perfectionists how to love themselves. I grew up next door to the hometown of Mister Rodgers. Then I lived in So Cal for 9 years, receiving my bachelor’s degree in Molecular Cell Biology. After changing my mind about going to veterinary school, I went into the fitness industry coaching on fitness & nutrition for 7 years before transitioning to life coaching fully in 2018. I received my training in personal transformation in Bali, Indonesia and now host retreats locally to lead women through their own powerful transformation. Letting go of perfectionism and practicing their potential

Tell me about your business. 

My business as a life coach consists primarily of coaching clients online in a group or one on one setting. I also host Vision Board Workshops and 3-day weekend retreats and host a podcast, the Camy Kennedy Show on iTunes & Spotify. On Tuesday’s I host a live meditation class at Prima Elements Wellness in downtown Fayetteville, NC.

What struggles have you faced in your business? 

After coaching fitness & nutrition for 7 years I closed the doors to that business in late 2018. The biggest challenge, that any entrepreneur has is the belief to keep on going, despite the current circumstances.

How have you overcome those struggles?

The belief building process is one I practice daily and teach at my retreats. Holding a high vibration as I serve others, care for myself and keep moving forward. Using meditation, and other energy psychology tools such as EFT (tapping) self-hypnosis, affirmations, journaling, etc I find very effective in letting go of limiting beliefs and reprogramming the subconscious mind for success.

Who were your mentors growing up? 

My first business mentor was Jill Coleman, and she instilled in me the importance of taking action – even before you may feel ready. Her quote was, “Ready…FIRE…aim…aim…aim.”Joel Brown taught me the power of having a 10-year vision and how that provides the motivation to keep moving forward. Emile Steenfelt taught me the power of living within a set of core values, which guides our relationships and decisions. And Ben Kelly taught me the power of having a personal relationship with your potential self and taking actions as if you were already there in the future.

If you were to give advice to a woman going into the field you are in what would it be?

I see many of my colleagues entering into the life coaching field, and I believe it will continue to grow. What I tell my other life coaching clients it’s not about being perfect and sometimes that imposter syndrome can hold us back. Remember, you have tools to teach and “a 1st grader could teach a kindergartner something”

Have you found that being a woman in your field is harder or easier?

Tell me about the advantages and disadvantages of being a woman. In this field, I think it may be dominated by women. I don’t see many disadvantages, other than the ability to stand out as a life coach and have a clear definition of the people you serve. For me, I help recovering perfectionists and high achievers learn to love themselves – this is the breakthrough that has them feeling more fulfilled and attracts people and things to them. The advantage of having so many women in the field is that we can collaborate on events, retreats and expanding our networks through interviews and features like these. There are plenty of clients to go around, and I believe in collaboration over competition.

Have you ever have to overcome a hostile work environment? 

For the 10 years that I was working in a “job”, I seemed to always have a challenging work environment. Some were due to my own mindset and some were due to my superiors. What I’ve learned is that everyone wants to feel respected and made to look good at work. By developing emotional intelligence, one can excel in any work environment or make the choice to find a new one. I don’t want to downplay the effect of work on our lives, as we spend 40 hours there weekly, yet I see it as a learning tool in how we can show up differently to get different results.

What made you decide on your chosen field? 

I’ve been studying neurobiology since high school and have always been fascinated with the brain and human psychology. People have always told me I have a gift for teaching, and the ability to hold space for people while they are processing their emotions. As a young person, I didn’t realize this could be a career. Yet, as I’ve had my own transformation through working with my own life coaches, I knew I was meant for this. I’ve been speaking about the complexities of the brain since I’ve been 16 years old – and I will continue to learn how to change our thoughts and beliefs.

Anything else you would care to share. 

Even if you are not an entrepreneur, cultivating emotional intelligence, developing self-love, and learning how to hack your subconscious mind will set you on the path to achieve your goals. Too many people have resigned themselves to thinking “This is all there is. I guess I’ll always be this way and I will just be unhappy.” I’m here to challenge any belief that is standing in your way. Life will always be 50/50, yet we can actually create a different outcome by changing our thoughts. The process of growth can be fulfilling in itself, and the process of complete transformation is astounding. Start doing something each day to shift your mindset, and watch how your perception of life begins to change. 

Heres a short meditation I’ve created for people to start shifting into more gratitude.

  1. Love her story and she’s right. Imposter Syndrome can be a tough one. It’s awesome that she sees that everyone can help one another by collaborating. Well done.
