Meet Altheresa Clark of Inspire4Purpose

Today we’d like to introduce you to Altheresa Clark.

Altheresa, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I knew as a child that I wanted to help others, and that I wanted to change the lives of others. Growing up in the inner city of Miami I saw the despair and the needs of those from my peers to my neighbors who suffered from mental illness.

Growing up I dealt with the shame and guilt of having a mother who battled with mental illness in silence. Leading me to overcome my past and share my experiences with others through my work. In which this ignited the passion that I have now to not only help but to be a voice for those who suffer from mental illness.

I want to not only inspire, heal, and motivate the clients that I work with but to leave a positive imprint on their lives. I not only work with clients with mental illness but with clients who need coaching with the many issues, they may face in their lives.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have encountered many obstacles and roadblocks along the way. Starting a small business alone was very hard for me with the start-up costs, marketing and development of my business. I had to learn to do everything with my business start-up.

So I became the connoisseur for small business start-up. Juggling being a wife, mother, full-time employment and the various organizations I was apart of was hard for me to juggle all the hats that I wore. It did become very stressful and overwhelming especially when I had to see clients and also still make time for work, family, and friends.

I pushed through and learned the true meaning of balance and the importance of maintaining it. I had to learn to not only balance but to also take care of myself along the way because I struggled with self-care along the way as well.
