Life is an ever-changing tapestry with peaks and troughs, isn’t it? As a woman you find yourself sacrificing time and personal goals to get to the next level. It can be lonely, frustrating and sometimes you feel like you’re running into a brick wall where the flow has vanished along with your personal time.
I’ve been a single mother of 3, juggling work and personal life, recovering from a long-standing abusive relationship of 23 years. This experience of self-discovery led me to author From Misery to Mastery - Journey to Freedom and Empowerment, a how-to book to get your life back on track after experiencing adversity.
I realise that I wasn’t in control of that moment when I decided to leave. I felt an inner knowing in the pit on my stomach that I could not stay another night in the house with my husband. I needed to move immediately while he was out, taking my children and myself and leaving behind that time and that situation. All of my reasons for staying dissolved; where my children were in school, whether the timing was right, avoiding stress for them. On that one day I changed the world I knew and I left and didn’t go back.
This huge decision was the catalyst for a new life, with steps that I’ve detailed in my book became core to who I am. Being given this moment of God's guidance, I now feel supported no matter what I’m going through. I believe I am a child of God, that He guides me to a place of being my best self and in total alignment with my divine purpose.
In my journey there were struggles in finding accommodation and creating a new life, there were dark times. But in amongst it all, family and friends supported me and I know now that my role in this world is to serve others in the same way.
What I wished for most of all in that time was someone who could hold my hand and support me, showing me that everything was in flow. I wanted someone who had my back while I changed so dramatically, always encouraging me forward with grace. I found that help through coaches and mentors and I learned how to offer the same.
This is my journey, to help you, the spirited businesswoman who feel out of alignment with yourself and the world around you, to find your inner strength, reconnect with who you are and your purpose in this world. I create breath in your lungs and a freedom to move forward with vision and purpose, no matter how hard or impossible it may seem right now.
Your business is to realise that you are the source of your joy and the why of who you are and what you are here to do, is central to your success. This is the person we transform together, working towards the new you, who is lighter, happier and vibrantly successful in the world. With me you are supported to step forward into space, even not knowing the outcome; you can step forward and believe that it will all be okay. Better than that, it will be wonderful.
