Who is Lindsay Hack?
I have been working with my coach and mentor about “my story”.
Here is my first attempt and would love your feedback.
My name is Lindsay Hack. I am a personal trainer, healthy living coach, network and Internet marketer and a mom and wife.
I grew up in suburb west of Toronto, Canada called Mississauga. My mom had many different careers during my childhood years and went back to University when I was young to get a degree in Physiology. I remember wondering why she would bother; of course I was a child and didn’t understand. My dad and mom got divorced when I was quite young, and other then knowing I never wanted to get married, I didn’t really seemed that bothered.
I was a rebellious teenager who didn’t really try in High School and didn’t really want to go to University but did because it seemed like the “right” thing to do. After a 3-year degree in Drinking (ok it was actually Communication/Theatre but I didn’t do much) I started working with a communication company. It was ok but I got bored pretty quickly and wanted more of a challenge. I move to another communications company and was doing well. But I still knew I was destined to do more.
I decided I wanted to go travelling and hooked up with a friend who was heading to England for work. I flew over with her and then started a 12-month adventure alone through Europe. Little did I know I was going to meet my future husband on this adventure. I got to travel to Paris, Belgium, Ireland and many other beautiful places learning and exploring what the world had to offer.
After 12 months, I was ready to move on and Ben (now husband of 10 years) decided to come with me. We traveled for another 12 months across Canada, India, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand. It was an incredible journey that not only taught us that we were meant for each other, but also that we loved traveling and the excitement of the journey.
We settled in Canada after leaving 2 years before and tried to get “REAL” jobs. We waited patiently for Ben to get his working visa so he was able to work legally in Canada. I started working at a Pharmaceutical company in the IT department and moved up in rank over the next 2 years, but the truth was I hated it. I missed travelling, I missed the freedom of coming and going and I wanted something better. We decided to take a ‘financial pause’ on our future so I could go back to University for a second time and do something I really wanted. I went into Nutritional Sciences and started as a personal trainer. That was 10 years ago and I still love helping people, teaching people and motivating people to reach their goals.
I worked my way through the largest Fitness Club in Canada and soon became the Fitness Manager at one of their leading clubs. I loved to lead people; I loved helping my personal trainers hit their financial goals and their personal fitness goals. I worked long and hard but it was ok because I finally found something I was passionate about.
We moved from Toronto to Calgary, Canada in 2007 and had our first daughter in 2008. What an adventure. I started my own personal training business and was able to stay at home with my daughter, train for my Ironman race and work with clients. It was amazing. Our second daughter was born in 2010 and it was then when both Ben and I started to get restless. We were travellers at heart and we had been in one place for a few years.
When the opportunity to move the family over to Australia came, we jumped in with 2 feet. Sold all of our belongings and boarded a plane with a 1 and 3 year old to fly across the world.
When we left Australia the first time, I truly didn’t think we would be back, but here we were +2 in Sydney enjoying the weather, the beaches and the change it had brought us. Our stay in Australia was amazing with many challenges that happen when you are far away from loved ones, with small children and a demanding job. We eventually decided to move back to Canada and try and “settle” again.
The beauty of being a healthy living coach is that you can do it anywhere, online or offline and I was able to continue to grow my business all over the world.
In the summer of 2012 I was introduced to Network Marketing. I was actually looking for a product that would help me with my triathlons and my performance. I did a lot of research and found an great company with great products. I had great results personally right away and started sharing my great business with others. It was easy to share with my personal training background and my business grew quickly. My team grew and I earned my car in 3 months and started making really good money. But then the business fell apart! It crumbled before my eyes and I was devastated. I thought about quitting.
I did not quit! I worked harder and used those failures into successes.
With the help of a great mentor, great training and support, I began to truly enjoy building my business again. I love the freedom it offers, the travelling opportunities we continue to have and the ability to help people both financially and physically.
In addition to living my dreams, my passions are my family – my 2 gorgeous daughters and my husband Ben, spending time with friends, triathlons and running and of course traveling!
To Your Success,
“Helping you stay at home while making a living”.
