About Rocio Flores
Rocio Flores is a young woman in her 20’s determined to live a different type of life. Willed by the American Dream, she has started her own business and has committed herself to achieve success. Her definition of success is defined by homeschooling her future children, whilst working from home, and living in a tiny house with a greenhouse and chicken coup and a huge library (that will somehow fit inside). She and her Husband TonyRay live in a small town in Colorado where there isn’t a lot to do but the fun is found in hobbies and their pet cat Sly. Rocio was born in Mexico and brought as a child to the states, where she was raised in the city and moved to a rural town in her teen years. There she met the love of her life and finished school. The couple has since created a grandiose yearning for a life filled with love, peace, and happiness among the chaos and disarray of their surroundings and their own minds. Follow the life of a girl trying to navigate her reality while also encouraging others to create better ones for themselves.

My Life Story
My Perfect Coaching Client
I want to work with people who are weird; unafraid to stand out, to speak up for what they care about, to not fit the status quo.
I want to work with people who are learners; always open to knowing more, understanding more, and questioning the world around them.
I want to work with people who are good; always caring about others, choosing empathy, and hoping to make a change.
I want to help people openly thrive and engage in their environment without compromising their values or principles and while embracing their personalities and experiences.

My SELF-Development Journey
I coach people in career, health, and personal development so it's only logical that I too have had my own journey in each of the categories. The very reason I help people with these topics is because I understand the total overwhelming and confusing nature of them. For topics that pretty much make up our existence, there is a lot of difficulties wrapped around them.
I, too, know what it's like to not know what I want to do with my life, to finish college and not find work in my field, and to learn that I fit into a different industry altogether. I originally wanted to be an artist, but growing up in a poor immigrant family meant I needed to do something that would help me take care of them one day. I chose to go to college and study psychology and I graduated with an associate degree and 30 extra credits toward a bachelor's. Again finances put a rock in my path and I turned to learning about building a home business. I have studied Marketing from top industry experts since 2014 and have been coached by them as well. I finally put the pieces together and learned proven methods to run an effective business. I can attest to the saying that "what you don't pay in cash, you pay in time." It has taken me time to learn and to do this all on my own but I know have a greater appreciation and knowledge of how it all works.
All the while, i've had to manage my own health. From mental health to physical health, I've had to learn much about how the human body and mnd work. I grew up thin but gained weight throughout college. I initially lost the weight and worked as nutrionist, took nutrition courses, and successfully helped over 200 hundred people lose anywhere from 30 to 100 or more pounds. And then it happend... I started to gain it all back. This is the crux of the weight loss industry, that 95 % of people gain their weight back. This is where I started to recognize the mind-body connection. There was a reason I was struggling and constantly reaching for unhealthy treats.
I had struggled with mental health issues since the 8th grade. I didn't know what it was back then, but the symptoms plagued me all throughout my high-school and college career. It wasn't until psyche 101 that I realized that there might be a name for the issues I was dealing with. It took a lot of time, therapy, medication, and several intimidating doctor visits to get to my diagnosis. I was given the title of Severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Cyclothymia, along with depression, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms.
Enter Personal Development -> Sometimes, we just don't know everything and it takes someone or something to help us see what we are blind to. I've worked with therapists, pastors, and coaches, read plenty of books, taken courses, and done programs to help me learn about my Thoughts, Behaviors, Habits, Emotions, and the links between them. Humans are complicated creatures but we are also incredibly capable of molding the world around us. I have learned proven methods to taking back control of my thought processes, emotional responses, and formed habits.
I've done the work, sometimes the hard way, and now I can share my journey and I can help others through theirs so that they don't struggle as much!
