I left school at the age of 16 not knowing what I wanted to do with my life. Further education was never an option as it was drummed into me from an early age; leave school, get a job and start paying your way. I was fortunate to get a job immediately and never anticipated or even thought that would be the start of a 22 year career in the Motor industry.
Until it came to an abrupt ending. Redundancy. Didn't see that coming. Stunned….shocked; I was told to leave there and then. I felt worthless, - and a huge sense of loss. Sometimes we just move along in life expecting things to simply carry on as they are and then suddenly, overnight, everything changes.
My first experience of coaching was at a Tony Robbins event over two decades ago. He is the Nation's #1 Life and Business Strategist. Applying all the things he taught me, I had to become my own best coach. This was a time in my life, I had to sit down and work out what it is I want to do with the rest of my life. I knew I wanted to help people so I changed direction and trained as a personal trainer helping hundreds of people to get more active and eat healthily. What I discovered over the years is the majority of people know what to do - but getting them to actually follow through and stick with a plan is the reason so many diet and fitness plans fail.
This also applies in business but not everyone knows what to do when they first start up in business and having a clear plan and taking action is critical for its success. Now I coach clients to shift from owning a job to running a business. Transitioning from the mindset of the employee to that of a successful Entrepreneur. Helping them to develop their focus, manage their time and provide structure to their working week so that they can achieve success and sustainable growth for their business.
I have learned to deeply understand people's challenges mentally and physically. I love inspiring other businesswomen to find and implement solutions to help them achieve their dreams for their business and their personal life. My passion is coaching businesswomen who are firefighting, managing their time, from full days and a crowded life with days and a life waiting to be filled.
