Hi I’m Jeremy Mark Meyer. I was born in 1981 and I grew up in a small, working class part of South Carolina. As a kid I was extremely shy and awkward, largely due to the abusive situation I was raised in. I struggled to make friends and always felt out of place.
That all caused me to become a total people pleaser and perfectionist. And while I had no confidence or belief in myself, part of me wished that one day I could attain a career that would allow me to escape blue collar poverty.
My first attempt at a career was as an actor. You see, I always loved movies and television. And even though I was still very shy in college, I challenged myself to take acting classes and act in plays.
I was by no means a natural. But I was determined to get as good as I could at acting. And I thought that just maybe, I might be able to get a career out of my pursuits. So I moved to Los Angeles at 24 years old.
Along the way I was able to land some exciting and fun acting gigs. But they were few and far between. So I always had to work some crappy full-time job just to survive. And before I knew it I was 33 years old. And nowhere near having an actual career as an actor.
So I took a soul searching trip to Peru. Down there I attended two ayahuasca plant medicine ceremonies. And that changed me in a lot of positive and profound ways. Most obviously, it allowed me to let go of the acting. Which felt like a huge weight off my shoulders. And then, with newfound excitement and possibility, I set out on a whole new search for a career pursuit that would actually lead to success and hopefully happiness as well.
That steered me down the path of personal development. I’d dabbled in self-help content up until that point. But this time I dove all in. So I consumed as much content as I could find, from books, to podcasts, to documentaries, to online courses and in personal events. Plus I hired various coaches and hypnotherapists. And I even got deep into spirituality.
This all helped me learn a lot of new things while healing more of my past subconscious issues. And along the way, I realized that becoming a coach and hypnotherapist myself, would bring meaning and purpose to my life, more than any other career.
So then I started training as a coach and hypnotherapist. And steadily I gained knowledge of useful tips, tools and techniques to help others. Plus, I thankfully, got lots of experience with a variety of different clients.
And after some trial and error and ups and downs, I discovered that helping aspiring coaches and hypnotherapists was the best niche for me. So if you happen to be stuck in a day job while trying to get a career going as a coach or hypnotherapist…
