We had the good fortune of connecting with Johanna Derbolowsky and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Johanna, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
Giving up has never been an option for me. I didn’t really pick what I do, it picked me and I can’t see myself doing anything else. I never tried to get anywhere, for me it was more like a calling, Life has always thrown me back into the healing and transformation field until that became my entire focus. It was not always easy. I accepted the challenges and learned how to transform myself and move forward. I think it is most important to stay true to yourself even if there are rough patches in the road. You have to be your own friend and support yourself and your truth, because without yourself there is nothing you can experience.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
QuantumHeartField.com is the place to go when you are stuck or at a crossroad in your life or business. My transformation coaching and healing approach is straight forward, easy to use and often requires only one session to propel the client to the next level. For those who rather go at it alone I wrote the best-selling book The Transformation Promise to help the reader transform life’s situations. I also published a workbook 28 Days to Love, Joy and Prosperity for people who need a little help staying on track with their desired changes.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love Los Angeles, it has so much to offer. I like the hidden gems, the Watts Towers, The World Stage, BobBakers Marionette Theater, the Underground Museum and all the different ethnical neighborhoods from Thai town via little Armenia to Korea town and Little Saigon. I also always encourage people to stop at Union Station, Downtown, the fashion district and of course my favorite: the South Bay beaches. For me LA has something for every mood. Mountains for a quiet hike and Abbot Kinney to people watch and be seen. The Culver hotel bar with its rich history is worth a visit or Grunions in Manhattan Beach if you like an unpretentious sports bar with good food. The Broad Museum and Disney Concert Hall combined with a stroll through the jewelry district is also on my list for visitors.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are so many people who have helped and inspired me along the way, but my shoutout goes to The Watts Towers Art Center that offer so much to the community and the World Stage in Leimert Park. The performance and writing workshops are phenomenal and the supportive attitude helped me get out of my shell . V. Kali, Hiram Sims, and of course the late Dini Clarke have made a huge difference in my life. It’s a great local place to go for music, literature and encouragement.
