After having my second baby I left my 12 year corporate career and set up my first business. I had post natal depression and anxiety and on the outside things probably looked fine, but inside I was sad, lonely and simply not enjoying life. When it came to growing my business, I could see everyone else getting results, but I wasn’t getting anywhere. I had such low self-esteem and self-worth that I couldn’t put myself out there and show up like I wanted to.
In 2016 I was introduced to a Business Coach and it changed the course of my life!
I suddenly started to get answers as to why I was thinking, feeling and acting in the way that I was and from then on everything started to change.
That year I invested in myself and begin working with a coach, and attended training events, where I was able to let go of a lot of emotions that were attached to events from my past. Having these breakthroughs had a significant impact on how I was feeling and therefore my results. Towards the end of 2016 I was given the opportunity to train to become a coach and I didn’t hesitate! I knew that if I could change my life around, then others could do the same too. After certifying in early 2017 I set up my Coaching Business and never looked back. I had some initial success which was great, and I loved every second of building my business, but then I identified some gaps in my own skills, specifically around sales. So I invested further, learnt how to sell, and became an Emotional Intelligence Specialist.
In March 2018 I flew out to Taiwan, leaving my children for two weeks, to complete my master coach certification. Attending that course had the most impact on me both personally and professionally. I came home a new woman, literally! This year alone I been a guest speaker at several events, I have been on the Radio 3 times, nominated for various awards, recognised as one of only 4 success coaches globally by The Tolson Institute, became an DiSC Assessor, plus I continue to coach and consult with 1:1 clients all around the world, and I host my own live events to support local business people.
I know first hand what can happen when you have a breakthrough and that’s why I’m passionate about showing business people how they can succeed faster.
Juggling a business and a family can be challenging at times. I used to experience a lot of ‘mum guilt’ but now I manage my time really well. I’ve learnt how to do more in less time so that when I’m with my family we can enjoy our time together and I’m not distracted too much by work, or worrying about what I should be doing in the business!
I’m inspired by people achieving their goals, stepping out of their comfort zones and achieving their dreams despite their circumstances or background. There are people out there doing amazing things and its possible for anyone.
I wish that I had known what I know now years ago, so my best advice to anyone is don’t wait to get help. If you feel that something isn’t working in your business, if you aren’t making the type of money you want, then seek to resolve it as soon as possible because ultimately your quality of life will be affected if your business isn’t where you want it to be.
We know that when you have a breakthrough change can happen really fast so don’t wait, act today and get the results you want!
