Which path are you going to follow? Or are you going to create your own?

Which path are you going to follow? Or are you going to create your own?

I found myself at the fork in the road, bewildered that I had tried both paths, neither leading to the fulfillment I hoped for. What now?I had to create a new path. I stood staring at the metaphorical jungle before me, holding my machete, ready to start hacking away at the twisted foliage. A daunting task, but I put one foot in front of the other as I dispelled with this obstacle & then the next. The path began to reveal itself & I gained momentum as I saw it begin to form.

Looking back now, I’m not sure that I can specifically determine where or when the path began or when it veered one way or another. However, every step led to this moment. I have learned to be grateful for each triumph & tribulation. I created a new path for myself… BUT, I could not have done it without those supporting me along the way. The people that stood by me or those I encountered throughout my quest taught me valuable lessons & pushed me forward. In doing so, I have achieved more that I thought was possible.

I want to be one of those people for you!

Erin MacDermut, CALC, ACC

Erin MacDermut, North Carolina native & graduate of Appalachian State University, spent over 15 years in customer service & sales for printing, advertising & marketing resource companies. Trying her hand at all those industries had to offer, she decided to look inward to find her true passion & discovered that the time she spent outside of the "9 to 5" environment better reflected who she was as a person. Beyond her day to day business activities, Erin traveled, mentored high school & college students & began writing about her wild & hysterical experiences. Once her true passions were defined, she set out to find a way to do what she loved full time.

The core of her corporate experience was connecting with people & helping them accomplish their goals. Erin now uses those skills, in addition to her coach training from Raleigh Coaching Academy, to build relationships via personal coaching. LifeEmergent was established in 2014 with the purpose of helping people discover, pursue & succeed in living out their dreams. The Results - Authentic & Fulfilled Lives.

Other fun facts: Erin is tall enough to ride the rides at Disney - but just barely, has a dog named Maggie, loves zombies & St. Patrick's Day, has a weakness for chai lattes & great food, claims to be fearless until a roach or a camel cricket appears, throws a great party, always says "YES!" to a new adventure & has never met a stranger! And, she is ready to meet YOU!
