FABIOLA HESSLEIN and How Rockstar Spirit Began!
THE BEGINNINGS OF ROCKSTAR SPIRIT
Throughout my youth, I remember wholeheartedly declaring I'd be a rockstar -- not just in a literal sense but at everything I planned on conquering (even vowing I'd one day perform with Michael Jackson). Years later in the 90s, that belief would lead me to multidimensional accomplishments across 3 decades of my life and career -- and ultimately working with Michael Jackson!
My journey would not be without the struggles and adversity as aspiring artists typically endure, including moments with barely a dime to my name or a home to call my own, repeated casting rejections, and sexual harassments from those who had the power to make or break your career. But I maintained an invincible mindset and continued to believe that greatness was my right while holding onto visions I had for my future. With this belief system and conviction, some of those dreams would ultimately come true including a few surprises along the way. I went on to work with many great artists & icons besides Michael Jackson. Usher, Pink, Marc Anthony, Missy Elliot, Ricky Martin are just to name a few. I traveled internationally as a master teacher and mentor; landed a major recording demo deal; found my soulmate; became a successful entrepreneur; built equity and gained financially freedom. It was a 'rockstar' experience in the realms of love, career, money, creativity, world travel, exploration and more. It turned out to be a fluid and abundant life experience so far.
In 2008, my husband and I morphed our talents to launch our full-scale live entertainment production company, Tryon Entertainment. I vowed to over-deliver and perform the same work ethic I had witnessed from many legends and notable figures I had the honor of working with. As a "Type-A control-freak", I entrenched myself into almost every role in my company. Within a few short years, we become recognized and respected for our meticulous attention to detail, unparalleled creativity, and my leadership as a female CEO, Creative Director, and Co-Founder of a leading innovative event production company in New York City --- catering to a clientele that includes global brands, corporations, VIPs and celebrities.
In and around 2017, my "never-say-die" attitude had caught up to my mind, body, and spirit, resulting in emotional distress and health concerns that landed me in the emergency room several times, near stroke as one doctor diagnosed. The burnout, depletion, and rat race was causing not only my ability to function at my best but prompting my inner light to dim. I asked myself, "Was this what it took to succeed as an entrepreneur ..a mover and shaker?" It appeared that every fiber of my being was calling for transformation and realignment. I got too caught up in survival-mode and a disease to please everyone but myself. So I decided to make serious changes by setting boundaries, releasing what no longer served me, and experimenting with my own unique method that would help me reclaim my rockstar spirit. During this process, I also got the sense that I was being led to a new purpose or chapter in life.
That year would prove to be quite transformative. While “movements” were going on in the world, movements were going on in me. It was a very lonely and isolating quest but I experienced breakdowns and breakthroughs that made me 're-member' my true power and how much we're in control as co-creators with our inner source connection -- a brilliance within us that acts as our very own guidance system. I think of it as a transcendent partnership. The universe lives inside of us. We simply need to 'let go' a little and dance with the universe more. Life becomes more effortless. I entered 2019 renewed and empowered, instantly experiencing a resurgence of strength, success and new-found abundance in many ways.
In hindsight, it was that original rockstar 'spirit, mindset, heart-based intention', that allowed me to release the grip a little and trust in the universe. It's what activated me in the beginning of my creative journey. I wanted to get back to that "flow". So I came to realize that while hard work may be part of the equation to success, it's alignment that's the true hustle. Self-care equals self-love, which leads you back to alignment. This is the real method to the madness!
This alignment process will allow us creative control of our environment -- a life and work experience filled with more ease, grace, and empowerment. I am excited to offer Rockstar Spirit as a life-enriching platform to help others experience their own personal evolution.
