ACL 049: Emilie Cortes

Emilie Cortes discovered that outdoor physical challenge provided an unexpected boost in her own self-confidence, and a balance to the stress of her high-powered career in the Bay Area. She ended up leaving her finance job to empower other women by leading them on outdoor adventure trips.

In this episode of A Congruent Life, Emilie shares stories about:

  • being very successful in her career, “but not feeding my soul,”
  • the unexpected lesson she learned from hiking Half Dome: “nothing at the office is going to seem scary any more.”
  • how a physical injury created an extended opportunity for reevaluation of her life,
  • the value of a coach in developing clarity, and in catalyzing change,
  • the challenge – and benefit – of being willing to ask for help,
  • the restorative impact of being disconnected and immersing oneself in the natural world,
  • surprising herself with the power of visualization, even at a subconscious level, and
  • sharing the wisdom she’s learned about breaking down boundaries and not holding ourselves back.
