Who is Andrea Maurer?
Believer… completely, 100%, beyond a shadow of a doubt certain that we are all MUCH more capable and important than we every thought possible.
Writer… blogs, book, articles, complaint letters, etc. It feeds my soul, keeps my train on the tracks and always teaches me something new about myself (even the complaint letters).
Creative Genius… seriously. It’s my thing. Some might call it a gift. I like to take things apart and combine them with other things to create new or different perspectives, ideas or solutions.
Change Agent… I see possibility everywhere. At a pretty early age I began pushing, coaching and encouraging the people I knew (and occasionally those I didn’t) into making positive changes in their lives. Turns out, my toughest client was me.
Intuitive… I know things. Don’t ask me to explain it. I can’t. I just do.
Truth Teller… partner in crime to the intuitive thing. If I know it then I kind of have to say it. It’s not always pretty but it is always necessary. And, yes, the rumor is true – the truth will definitely set you free IF you’re willing to look it in the eye.
Lifelong Student of the Human Experience… most of my work in this area has been of the hands-on variety, and here’s what I’ve learned – every single thing we do – the good, the bad and the ugly (especially the bad and the ugly) is an opportunity to learn or grow or connect. Sometimes you have to squint to see it, but every cloud does indeed have a silver lining.
Ex… government worker, real estate agent, business consultant, corporate trainer, project manager, bartender, telephone operator, pots and pans salesperson, gas station attendant, weight loss counselor, newspaper carrier, etc.
Recovering Malcontent… treatment plan includes not doing things I don’t want to do, having lots of fun and being 100% dedicated to pursuing my dreams.
Sports Fanatic… a side effect of growing up in a house with three men and one TV. It was either watch sports or hang in the kitchen with Mom. I chose the former. Now, I’ve got my own house with three men and four TVs in it, and I’d still rather watch the game. I love the Colts, the Pacers, the Reds, the Hoosiers and Peyton Manning.
Comedian… VERY funny.
Smart Ass… another gift.
Potty Mouth… sometimes there’s just no substitute for a big, juicy F-bomb.
Mid-Westerner… Carmel (by the highway, not the sea), Indiana
Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother… in that chronological order. Two parents, two younger brothers, one husband, two sons. “Blessed” doesn’t even do it justice.
