Dr. Missy Johnson

Is a high-achieving, fearless woman.  Here is her story in her own words.

I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I am a wife, mother and owner of a toy poodle; Snuggles. I have a Bachelor, Master’s degree and honorary PhD.

I have been successful in small businesses, MLM and politics. I have over 20 years in the automotive industry and the CEO of CTC Coaching & Personal Development LLC. I am a high achieving woman.

Sounds great, right? If you would trust and give me permission for a couple minutes of your time, let me re-introduce myself back to you as an authentic and transparent individual.

I am Missy, named by my father when I was little. He died an untimely death September 2012. He would always say, she is smart, that girl is going to work, and she is a go-getter and I would not let him down. What my dad and my inner circle did not know is that I never felt good enough within myself. I was never celebrated or validated by my family or peers when I reached an accomplishment. It was expected that I performed as a high achieving woman. I was unintentionally and unknowingly a FRAUD to me, myself and I.

What I want you to understand is that my accomplishments and achievements are all true; however, I used to live deep inside a dark hidden place call FEAR. FEAR of not being accepted by other and fear that no one would hear my voice. Fear that I always had to be the adult even as a child due to my social economic climate.

What I want you to understand is that my accomplishments and achievements are all true; however, I used to live deep inside a dark hidden place call FEAR. FEAR of not being accepted by other and fear that no one would hear my voice. Fear that I always had to be the adult even as a child due to my social economic climate.

No one knew I lived in FEAR because I didn’t allow anyone into that place. In fact I did not know “she” really existed because it was just that way. FEAR became my silent business partner and her name is Self-Sabotage.

My turning point came on 5-23-2009; I was involved in a 60 MPH head on collision with a closed head injury. I lost my memory for 3 months; I could not even remember my name.

This is when FEAR decided to have a party and invited other house guests like, doubt, lack of confidence, lack of finance, lack of focus, fear of foreclosure and all things that kept me in fear mode and constantly told me that I would never be anything in life despite my achievements.

It has taken me years to recognize and uncover the real root of fear and self- sabotage. I discovered my mindset has been out of balance all this time, but I am still here.

After working in corporate most of my life, I experienced many highs and lows. The tipping point occurred over a period of time due to laid-off, buyouts and corporate downsizing and a two time near death experience.

Today I am FREE from FEAR and it does not live in me anymore. I have coached and supported many clients over the years and shown them how to transform from high achieving women to empowered entrepreneurs who live life on their own terms.
