Giving up Perfectionism & People-Pleasing as I Started my Company by Heidi Benjaminsen
Heidi Benjaminsen will share how changing her "thoughts" and "beliefs" have led to significant transformations in her life and the importance of giving up perfectionism and people-pleasing as she started my company.
Heidi grew up as the oldest of 4 children in College Park, Maryland. She attended BYU Provo and graduated with a Bachelors of science in Sociology. Afterwards she served a mission in the Portugal Lisbon North mission, especially enjoying the last 9 months when she lived on islands in the Azores and Madeira.
Once home and following a prompting, she moved to Boston not knowing a soul. This leap of faith paid off with a thriving career in project management consulting and meeting her shockingly handsome and brilliantly hilarious husband Bill Benjaminsen. Together they have two teenage boys, Carter and Matthew, and a beautiful tween, Abby Mae.
Heidi has always had a passion for social constructs and interpersonal dynamics as well as individual development. After years of unofficially advising and counseling individuals on everything from health and wellness to grief counseling and relationships, she now owns a life coaching business. Heidi hosts a popular weekly podcast Hi, This Is Heidi. She has found great fulfillment in helping her clients understand their individual worth and reaching their potential.
Heidi is a collector of dear friends, a daily exerciser, a southern belle, an avid reader, a pink apron-wearing baker, an advocate for self-care, a devoted mother, a smitten wife and a constant seeker of discipleship.
