We had the good fortune of connecting with Monica Alexandra Ribero and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Monica Alexandra, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Being an overachiever, I had a hard time pausing to connect with myself and connect with the life that I actually wanted. It was always go time, achieve time, perfect it time. Until I went through a moment of realization that I was not living my life, but someone else’s.
As many people do, I bought many self-help books to try to find my purpose and understand me a little better. I followed multiple gurus to learn more about how I could feel authentically empowered and reach my potential. Although it was great knowledge, nothing helped me unlock what was holding me back the way that Energy work did. I realized that many people know about energy, but very few know their dominant vibration and how that impacts their results in life. There is so much in our programming that we easily fall back to default triggers, unless we change the way we are from the core.
This is why I became a core energy life and leadership coach. To help others master their momentum and expand their growth from within, consciously own themselves, and transform their lives and the lives of their people.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What Am I inspired by?
I am mostly inspired by humanity and humbleness. On my path, I have come across very successful women and men from all walks of life. One thing that I admire is powerful people showing their human side and having the confidence to remain teachable; an expression of humbleness.
I am also very inspired by the growth that I see in the people I love and the clients I work with. Helping someone become a better version of themselves and have a deeper connection to their inner self and others, motivates me greatly.
Final, but not least, I am inspired by people that overcome challenges to discover their purpose in life. Seeing others fulfill their calling and do the things they love with passion is very up lifting.
What factor is behind my success?
I believe that aligning my professional and personal experiences with my core values has been the key to my success. It is also one of the most important things I coach my clients on. It may not seem that significant because the majority of people don’t know their core values. A lot of our disappointments and frustrations come from the lack of alignment between what we are doing and what is important to us.
I measure success by the amount of consistent elevated emotions I feel throughout my life. As long as I feel emotions like forgiveness, joy, gratitude, passion, and love more than I feel the lower vibration emotions like fear, sadness, or anger; I consider myself successful.
It is important to know what your top 5 intrinsic values are first; then, align those to your professional and personal life. It is the most authentic way to increase your level of life satisfaction. You get to see opportunities more often than before and it gives you the confidence you need to succeed.
One conventional advise I disagree with?
One thing that I hear a lot out there is that people don’t change. For example, the phrase “Once a cheater, always a cheater” is in popular use. But, I completely disagree with the premise. I believe everyone is capable of changing who they are, when that happens, the things they do and how they do it change as well.
I truly believe that we are able to become anything we want. As a matter of fact, it is a core principle when I coach my clients. I coach them on their WHO, so their WHAT and HOW can change organically. Many coaches focus on their HOW, but it is a band aid and it doesn’t serve the client in a sustainable way.
Of course it takes work, specially inner work, but it is possible to change who we are.
What is new with me?
I recently launched a Momentum Energy Experience (MEE)
This experience was designed for the busy leader who wants to unlock their potential from within. It is Core Energy Coaching Accelerated experience where it includes an energy assessment that is like taking an X-Ray, but of the soul.
There are two ways you can unlock your POWER: Externally and Internally. We are all familiar with outside tools, but true power is unlocked from the inside.
In order for your to show up with your full potential, you need to be connected to the most honest version of yourself.
To do that, you need to know what is blocking you from taking your energy to the next level and achieving more of what YOU want and FASTER.
I am not your typical coaching experience. While most coaches see the potential in people, I bring it out from their core.
I am professionally certified as a Core Energy Life & Leadership coach.
I help high achievers expand their growth from within, consciously own themselves, and transform their lives and the lives of their community.
I support best those who are ready to make a shift in their lives and not afraid to go deeper.
As an overachiever myself, my story is about transformation from empty achievements throughout my life to owning my journey for even bigger results.
My work has been featured in different publications.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are many fun ways to spend a week in the city. The common thing I do with people that come and visit are:
1. Enjoy the beaches around south Florida.
2. Have delicious food in the MIMO district with a wide variety of restaurants
3. Visit Wynnwood and do other artsy stuff.
4. Take a yoga class on the beach or even better if it falls in new moon; enjoy the circle at the beach for a community connection moment.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are 3 main drivers of strength in my life that deserve notice.
1. My family is my rock and always available to give me honest feedback. Each one of them have a unique contribution in my success.
2. Friends that support me and get excited about my growth. As my closest fans, they give me fuel to continue.
3. My future self; which I am very connected with. She challenges, pushes me, and encourages me every day to keep going and to do things from the heart.
