Today we’d like to introduce you to Keturah Rosato.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I used to wonder how so many talented, intelligent women with all the outward ingredients for success would struggle to find, fulfillment, and live their full potential. No matter how well put together they were, when I got closer to them to learn from their example, I would discover that behind the accomplishments, they felt the same way I felt – like something was missing.
On the outside, everything looked good. I was married before I was 20 and proved to be very fertile – by age 23, I was a mother of three. Having three toddlers didn’t stop me. In fact, they are what fueled my drive to complete college and build a career in education.
I stayed busy and thankfully I’ve always remained in gratitude, so it was easy to assume from my marital status, job description, and personal contributions to my community, that I had every reason to be happy, but there was an emptiness that I couldn’t fill. “Issues within the tissues” are what I now call them. Ironically, the grace of God and my determination to heal these issues led me down a road that shifted my life and career. These shifts became the foundation for the work that I now do as an Emotional Fluency Coach. When I discovered the secret to finding my true purpose and calling, I couldn’t keep it to myself. I was determined to spread it like confetti to every single woman I meet because she’s so worth it.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I’ve seen a lot and endured a lot from witnessing domestic violence as a child, as well as other forms of childhood traumas and interpersonal violence. I always had hope, thanks to the examples of people like my mother – the epitome of faith in action, as well as foundational teachings from a special nun, Sister Claire, who was the principal of my high school and one of my biggest mentors.
When I was sixteen, I experienced a snowball of personal traumas that took me another sixteen years to begin to process and heal. I am thankful for all of it because without these encounters I wouldn’t have the experience, empathy, and ability to stand in a place of power, speak life and provide solutions to the issues that so many women silently struggle with.
Obtaining a college degree while raising toddlers was also challenging, yet I found a way to have fun with it, by turning my homework into their bedtime stories. Yep, I read my kids Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Octavia Butler’s classics to name a few, not every night, but often.
But the biggest challenge I overcame was recovering from perceived failure. Those beliefs that came as I compared myself with others left me perpetuating what I call an emotional wound cycle for years. I have found that this is one of the biggest hindrances to happiness and fulfillment for so many women and that’s why I am so passionate about helping women see their true potential.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I am an emotional fluency coach and founder of the Momentum Woman Inner Circle, an online personal development program. I help women leverage the emotional fluency competencies embedded in my signature framework Bold Power™ Method to experience peak performance and fulfillment and alignment in life, business, and relationships.
One of the biggest mistakes I see so many women make is they spend so much time taking care of everything and everyone, they plan their futures and their children’s futures, they acquire skillsets and accolades, yet they fail to invest in the one intangible that is so foundational to how they experience life. “Emotional Fluency”. My experience (personal and professional) as well as my science-backed findings are what set me apart from the other experts out there.
I am fascinated with neuroscience and all the innovations we have discovered in personal development around brain-based behaviors. What I love most is that we are learning groundbreaking ways to experience transformation through subconscious reprogramming, not just goal-setting, and high-performance habits. What makes my approach unique is that it takes into account what I believe will infuse identity, worth, and confidence at every level of the feminine experience for future clients the way my clients have seen miracle-style results because it naturally feeds the growth potential. I speak three languages, and I believe emotional fluency will do for someone what being multilingual does for a person in a foreign country. It gives a competitive advantage in so many areas.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
If you’re looking for success, seek joy, speak life, and see the opportunity in everything. When it comes to the people that I work with, I believe that a woman who is grounded and secure in her uncompromised identity can turn every moment into a celebration, whether it means you have to read Shakespeare to your children as their bedtime story because you have to find a way to balance motherhood and educational pursuits or forgiving yourself for being human.
Obstacles are an opportunity for innovation. My four criteria for innovation are 1. a problem to solve, 2. limited resources, 3. a crazy idea, and 4. a willingness to fail. And when you’re not afraid of failure, you tend to see the whitespace for creativity and solution in virtually everything.
I also believe that true success has a tendency to multiply and amplify your life and the lives of the people you love. So if you’re worried about your success alienating you from the people you love, lean into love, because your love will create a safe space for the people you love to follow you into that safety.
Lastly, if you don’t know where to place your focus as you strive for success, here’s a success hack: focus on what produces truth, purity, growth, loveliness, and goodness. We are naturally wired to respond to virtue and these virtues transcend time and trends.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me is simply getting the job done. So many times we measure our success by someone else’s accomplishments, not realizing that for that person, they may only be accessing half of their potential. if you do everything from the heart and with the right intentions you can’t lose. It’s not about gaining people’s approval, but about each task being a task well done. No matter what the outcome of your efforts, if you can honestly assess your efforts and say “yes, I gave my all and did it in the right posture of heart,” then that to me is a success. Success is not in the outcome but in the lessons learned throughout the journey and the steps that we take to apply what we learned to grow.
There’s something my mother used to say to me as a child and it took me a few bumps in the road to get a full understanding of what that saying really means. She used to say, “little is much when Love is in it.” And I believe that’s the key to success. LOVE. Perfect love removes all fear. So with love, your success is inevitable.
What’s next for you?
I am on the verge of something extremely exciting. Within the last four years of transitioning from the clinical and mental health space to now working in the personal developmental space as an emotional fluency coach, I have learned so much from clients, colleagues, and mentors. It’s time now to share what I know in a format that gives access to a larger platform of women and that’s why I am releasing my book Momentum Woman. It is not a self-help book but rather a celebration of the realms of creativity, purpose, and power that women all over the world embody as they uncover their potential and lean into their Bold Power™
