Ruth Hegarty started out as an excruciatingly shy child and young adult. She was so shy and unsure of herself that her parents encouraged her to speak up at home by giving her a nickel every time she could say something at one end of the apartment that they could hear at the other. She would sit at one end of the long hallway with her father and repeat "Hi, Mom" several times until her mother could hear her at the other end of the hallway. As you can imagine, this level of shyness made it next to impossible for Ruth to socialize at school or prepare for a career. Luckily, as Ruth grew up and recognized just how much her fear and lack of "voice" held her back she determined to change her situation. Over many years of trial and error Ruth was able to discover the secrets to becoming confident, finding her voice and living the life she always knew was out there for her. That is why today Ruth is such an inspirational speaker with a deep passion for empowering others to experience the transformative power of finding their own voice. Ruth uses her pesonal experiences and insights, her training and experience as a transformative educator and Law of Attraction coach and the inspiration she gets from seeing amazing client results to help people find their voice and feel great about being and sharing who they are.
