About 7 years ago I was very, well, not happy. My career had stalled, I never seemed to have the time to do the things I wanted to do, I was always running around after other people, my weight had spiked and I was seriously struggling with anxiety.
One day I had enough, and I swore to the Gods, or like pinky promised or something, that the time had come for me to have a sit down and sort my sh*t out.
For the last 7 years I have kept the sacredness of that pinky promise, and slowly tackled all of my crap, one tiny little piece at a time.
I got my career path way back on track. I sorted out my finances. I learned how to say ‘Non’ (this was the hardest bit).
I found some activities I bloody loved doing. I quit smoking and got married (unrelated but highly recommend both).
I kon-maried my house and had a child; the logical step to fill up the house again after I made all the extra space with the decluttering 🙄 .
And all the while I was chipping away at my anxiety until I reached what is now the height of my emotional health. And it feels great.
How I became a Coach
As I slowly learned how to identify aspects of my life that were causing my problems and dealing with them head on, I started working with other people who wanted to achieve the same. And I loved, love, LOVE IT!
Over the years some of my client successes include:
- Developing a side-hustle that turned into a business they could leave their job for
- Working on a career pivot into a new industry
- Retraining in an entire new career field
- Preparing for an organised maternity leave; both preparing for leave and returning to work
- Working on a self-management programme to deal with Anxiety
- Asking for the mother of all salary raises, and getting it!
What are you, Yoda?
Nah, I’m taller. Ish
I’m trained in Life and Business Coaching, and Career Coaching. I’m borderline obsessed with money, having it by the way not so much with the spending. I work to live and don’t live to work. I believe everyone, EVERYONE has potential and I think following dreams is the best thing in the world.
But you don’t need to know all of that. What you need to know is this:
I solve problems
I’ve spent the last ten years learning how to deal with my own sh*t, and now I would like to help you to figure out how to fix yours. Consider me your own personal cheat-sheet to getting ahead.
