You are here because you have big dreams and desires to have a better life… and you are willing to do whatever it takes to find a way to get it!

Who is Irina Kirilyuk?

I was born in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1977.

When I was almost 15 years old, my family moved to the United States, where I am currently residing.

My free-spirited personality was a huge asset while learning and adapting to my new life in this country. I was hungry for knowledge; I wanted to fit in but also wanted to be me!

While being new to the country and in a new high school was not easy, I was amazed at the amount of opportunity that was available in this country.

By the age of 16, I was able to work in a dental office as a dental assistant and  I was absolutely in love with my new occupation and life.

You just never know …

By the age of 19, I got married, and by 20 I became a young mother to my wonderful son Michael.

At that time, I realized… that life was not as easy as I thought it would be.

My marriage was falling apart fast and I was terrified of the thought to become a single parent. 

After almost six years of marriage,  I finally made a conscious decision to end the toxic relationship and committed my whole focus to raise my son.

In spite of my struggles as a single parent and provider for my son, my passion for helping others grew over the years more and more. I was able to go back to school to further my education in the dental field.

I was working long hours, studying at night so I could better my financial situation, provide for my son and build the life I always dreamed of.

My curiosity for life was always with me!

As I continued to build my life, I always made sure to allow some time for my passions.

My curiosity for life led me to learn to ride a Harley at age 35…

I will never forget the excitement and freedom I felt on my first ride to the store… and that’s where I got reminded again that the destination is not as significant in life as the journey to get there.

I believe my curiosity for life led me to my now amazing fiance and best friend, Jeff.  The man who lets me, be me, and who make my life even more beautiful.

What is missing?

By the age of 37, I was able to build a stable career in my dental field, but something was missing!

Why am I not as fulfilled as I thought I would be with my success?

 

My desire for a fulfilling life, filled with travel, freedom to explore and serve others, was always on the back of my mind.

This… was my wake-up call!

I don’t know if you can relate to this… but have you ever given guidance to your child, but later caught yourself resisting to follow your own advice when it was needed?

That’s how I was feeling…

I always encouraged my son to follow his dreams and to pursue his callings, no matter what! I was teaching him to leap ahead, not to be bothered by others opinion, always try new things in life… And here I am disappointed with my life and doubting my abilities…

Feeling unfulfilled was driving me crazy for some time and started to increase even more after my son left for a school overseas. But honestly, at that time I was not sure what to do.

So, the only advise I knew would work…. is the advice I was always giving my son – “Always Follow Your Heart”!

How can I bring my skills online?

I  started sharing my frustration with my partner, Jeff, who is an incredible individual and has always been there for me for the past six years.

He encouraged me to follow my dreams, and I was again on my way to figuring out the “How”.

Because I was finally ready to listen to my calling, the opportunity presented itself.

I came across an online digital school – where I learned how to bring out my passions and share them with others.

Honestly, I was scared to death to leave my 25-yr career, but the fear of not making the move was even more terrifying.

I knew I had a lot to learn, but that was not going to stop me.

What You are looking for is always looking for you!

If you found yourself on a similar path in your life,  I am here to inspire you and give you courage. I know what it feels like to be stuck and fearful.

I believe we are here to be an inspiration and to learn from each other.

My dream is to travel this beautiful world while inspiring others to be – all they came here to be.

Our life… here on earth has an unknown expiration date!

 

I encourage you to follow your dreams, think big, enjoy life and always follow your heart.

I am looking forward to sharing my life adventures with you!

Love, Irina
