About Our Guest
Dr. Amy Cannatta
Business & Vibrant Living Coach
You see, I grew up on a small farm in rural CT without a ton of opportunities. I knew early on in my heart that I was destined for more but didn’t know how to make it happen. But I was very resourceful. By the time I was five years old, I felt invisible and unworthy of attention, so I became a HIGH ACHIEVER so that I could be seen and heard. I excelled in school and college, receiving numerous accolades and recognition. But despite all of those achievements and recognition, I still did NOT feel important because I did not feel SEEN by the people who mattered most to me in my life… MY FAMILY.
By the time I was thirty, I was miserable, depressed, and 10 years into a domestically abusive marriage. I was DESPERATE and HUNGRY to change my life and the lives of my two daughters who were 5 and 3 at the time, and so I did. I didn’t know HOW I was going to do it, but I knew I HAD to because I was SICK AND TIRED. I knew I was resourceful and I would find a way.
So in the midst of going to school to be a doctor, I left my abusive situation with nothing more than a few garbage full of clothes and a BURNING DESIRE to turn my life around. So, I know how it is to start from SCRATCH. I know how hard it is to be super talented and STRUGGLE. I know what it is like to NEED HELP so badly but not know where to turn or who to trust.
I turned my life around and so can YOU! I have endured many struggles, setbacks, and hurdles. What helped me every day no matter how I felt was to get up, dress up, and SHOW up which made me FEEL better.
If I can do it, you can do it too. It’s time to turn your passion into a reality.
