Hey! I’m Dylan King. Welcome to Queen of Grit. I’d love to share with you a little bit about who I am and where I come from.
I love helping millennial women further their career by enhancing their communication skills by boosting their self-confidence so they can better connect with those around them.
I have a BFA in Performing Arts, and I worked as a Starbucks Store Manager for 8 years. Towards the end of my tenure at Starbucks, things just started to feel a little… off. In fact, they felt so off that I created a secret Instagram away from my friends and family where the bio was “a place to be the things I can’t in real life.”
But the more I posted on that account, the more I realized just how out of alignment I was living. I had strayed so far from my purpose that I wasn’t even sure what it was anymore. It got to a point where I could either keep working- pushing to meet goals that didn’t bring me any joy or fulfillment- or resign and figure out what that purpose was.
So I resigned.
With no new job. No direction. Just a little bit of savings, and a lot of hope.
I took tons of classes. Anything that had ever peaked my interest- I learned about. If I saw an ad for a free webinar, I took it and made diligent notes. And finally, I took a class that really clicked. Life Coaching.
That’s when things really started to fall into place. I got my certifications for Life & Success Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Neurolinguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and TIME Techniques: all certified through the International Board of Coaches and Practitioners.
And now- when I look back on what I’ve pursued in the past (theatre, my career path at Starbucks), I realize that what I was trying to do was support people in their journey to connect with others. Whether it was through art or a cup of coffee, my passion has always been to connect and inspire others.
So now I do it 1:1, supporting people on their mission to communicate.
To be seen. To be heard. To be understood.
