I’m Tia Castagno. Here’s how I went from burnout to energy, going from a lack of control to becoming the Queen of My Hustle
As a high achiever, I did everything by society’s book: graduated with top grades, got a Master’s degree, landed a corporate job (media & advertising), and started climbing the ladder.
By the time I reached my early thirties, though, I had turned into a full-blown workaholic.
My Blackberry (remember those?) was an extension of my arm, and I was always available – late evenings, weekends, lunches… and what even is an out-of-office mode during holidays?!
Sadly, not even my father’s tragic suicide was a wake-up call. In fact, I didn’t tell work! I threw myself even more into it to cope with my loss. This unavoidably led to a deep state of paralysing anxiety within six months.
That was it. Something had to change. But what? And most importantly: in what direction?
I hadn’t got the helping hand that UnlockYourBlock now is to others. So, I spent years trying to figure it all out with some trial and error.
Yoga and meditation helped me massively, though, so I decided to become qualified and started teaching in my free time. To feed my academic heart, I also began delivering keynotes as a side hustle.
Instead of being constantly drained, that’s when I started feeling this new energy and taking it to work. No wonder my career progressed more than when I was pulling those unsustainable 16-hour days!
I then became an executive and landed C-suite roles at some top global communications networks.
Things were definitely getting better… and yet it still didn’t feel like my career. I could sense an underlying feeling of unfulfillment whenever I stopped to think about my job.
Plus, even though I had made some progress as a recovering workaholic, I was still missing too many precious moments when I became a parent.
That called for much deeper self-development work with other teachers and coaches to tackle my emotions and limiting beliefs.
Once I removed the blocks that were holding me back, the real shift happened. I stopped looking for outside transformations (you know, changing bosses, jobs, or even countries) and focused on my inner energy.
This led to some groundbreaking but conflicting discoveries:
Then came the longed-for epiphany that allowed everything to make sense: shaping the corporate world into a better place and helping other mid-career women find their purpose after… unlocking their blocks (sounds familiar, right?).
And that’s exactly how UnlockYourBlock came about.
