Hi! My name is Paige Elizabeth, and I’m a professional overachiever.
My story begins early in life, at age 14. I had failed my second attempt at suicide and was deep into an eating disorder. The defeat I was submerged in led me to my first experience in the practice of surrender. I remember thinking, “God, if I have to be here then show me what I’m supposed to do.”
As a gymnast, diver, and swimmer, I managed to scale my education to graduate a year and a half early from high school.
Vertical Art & Fitness Magazine
From high school, I went to massage therapy school and got certified to work weekends while attending University of Nevada Las Vegas and obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration. After graduating college, I went on to work in some of the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas, making a six figure income, working only a few nights a week. I bought my first house and rotated between an Audi, Lexus, and Porsche.
In 2010, I left the nightclubs to build on my other skills. I pioneered an industry by being the first ever manager to a professional pole dancer. I managed her first world tour and even accompanied her to an event in South Africa. By the end of 2010, I had partnered up with former Playboy and Hardtail photographer, David D’ Angelo, to create Vertical Art and Fitness, a well respected and sought after international publication aimed specifically at giving the growing pole dancing industry the credibility it deserved.
In 2012, everything came to a screeching halt after my little brother was found dead of a heroin overdose. I didn’t even get to say goodbye. This began the domino effect that led to adrenal burnout, illness, loss of my business, and financial hemorrhaging. I found myself ultimately lost and without a compass. I had no choice but to resign myself to the reality I found myself in: Nothing was in my control. I had lost everything.
I began my yoga practice in 1998, and it had always been a source of healing for me. However, my practice was about to go deeper than ever. I leaned into the foundation I had created so many years ago. And by default found myself with an international following, thanks to social media and some courses I was asked to teach online for a colleague’s platform.
By 2016, I organized my second enterprise, The Dharmic Path, and I was teaching in other states and overseas by invitation, while also creating my own retreats. In that same year, I also joined the 2% of international Ashtanga practitioners who completed the very demanding advanced B series. I have had the privilege of practicing and aligning with some of the most well respected individuals in the industry. It was during this very challenging cycle (2012-2016) where my fortitude and ingenuity gained notice. I started coaching, mainly sharing my skills as a self-starter to other entrepreneurs and individuals seeking radical change.
Currently, I work as a personal success coach and keynote speaker, having just published my first book: Leading An Intentional Life. This baby was birthed on the heels of experiencing a life changing physical assault at the beginning of 2019. It was by far the scariest thing I’ve ever endured. The book is based on a lifetime of personal experience and research I’ve done from working directly with my own clients and students. I am retiring from teaching yoga this fall (2019) and am looking forward to speaking and working (FULL TIME WITH) one-on-one clients who seek personal success and fulfillment as well.
