Today we’d like to introduce you to Ruthie Q.
Ruthie Q., can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I always had the vision for great things in my life, but sometimes life throws curve balls at us, which was my experience. I was not living intentionally or purposefully. Years ago, I did this test thing that identified pivotal moments in my life. Overall it calculated how many days I had been on earth and it put a number next to each day. Some of my unintentional days went like this.
Day 6974: I tried marriage, which didn’t work.
Day 8159: I poured all of me into a relationship with someone who never saw my value.
Day 11361: I woke up blind in one eye
Day 11477: I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Some of the effects of the disease for me were going blind a few times in each eye, going numb up to my chest, feeling an electrical shock running up and down my spine, and the sensation of my skin feeling like it was on fire to the touch.
After so many unintentional days, on
Day 13220: I made the decision to LIVE, intentionally.
Living Intentionally allowed me to be a 4X Author of, Journey (First Edition), 2 Cents Away From Success: And Getting Motivated on the Way(children’s book), How to Bring your Book to Life in 30 Days (for aspiring authors), and Journey (Second Edition). It also allowed me to develop my “8 Step Plan to Living an Intentional Life”, which is what I teach people to do through private sessions, seminars, classes, and through speaking all over the world.
I was stuck in life, as a whole. I was at a place in my life where nothing was congruent with the vision that I had for my life. Bad relationships, unsatisfied with my career, not totally confident in myself, I knew that this was not the life that I wanted. After I had this ah ha moment where I realized and accepted that all of my failures and successes belonged to me, the rest was easier. Moving forward, I knew that I was not the only one who had gone through these kinds of experiences, and even though some people are not willing to share their experiences, I was the woman who was willing to say to other people, “hey, I’ve gone through this, and it’s possible to endure and conquer.” I didn’t want to keep living life on repeat like many people do. We can’t say that we want a change but then keep reliving the same script. When you go through enough, AND overcome enough, you have to share it. You can’t keep that kind of stuff to yourself.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road by any stretch of the imagination. Some of my struggles were failed businesses, a failed first marriage (I am happily married now), bad relationships, not knowing what I was capable of, etc. Intentional Living changed my perspective on life, because I was able to clearly identify where I needed to shift my paradigm. Once I allowed everything to come to the surface my mind opened up to so many possibilities, that were accepted limitations prior.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
My company is Ruthie Q. Companies, through which I am an Intentional Living Expert, a professional speaker, and Mentor. But I don’t do it alone. I have the most awesome team and we work very hard to not just make a difference, but to truly impact people’s lives. I specialize in getting people out of their own way and helping them to get unstuck in life. I do a lot of private life coaching in addition to my professional speaking, seminars, and classes. I am known by my peers, business affiliates, and clients as one of the top Intentional Living Experts. I am proud that I have the opportunity to empower so many people to make a change, not by my ability, but by using their own self-power. What sets me apart from others is that I spend a lot of time learning about the principles that people get comfortable with, and the principles that they are living by. It gives me a greater insight into how I can help people individually.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I think that San Diego is a great city to do what I do because of its diverse culture. San Diego is a large city, but it also warrants a very tight-knit intimate city feel, which provides a strong foundation for what I do.
