BACKGROUND STORY – IN MY OWN WORDS

I started my business back in 2012 following the birth of my daughter. I wanted to do something from home, that would eventually allow me to leave my corporate bank job. I discovered the world of the Virtual Assistant (VA) and this is when I first became aware of how powerful the internet was in creating a lifestyle and freedom business.

My business evolved into web and graphic design and then I had my son. I realised that doing this type of business on my own, it wasn’t scalable. I created my first ecourse and that opened my eyes to the power of digital products and courses.

After that more and more people kept asking me how they could grow their business online and get more clients and so I transitioned into business strategy and coaching, with the focus on business visibility. I ran my business alongside my 9-5 until October 2016 when I finally said goodbye! But that was not the full story.

I have been in the online space a while and in July 2015, I reached burn out. I had returned back to work in May after maternity leave, my husband had got a job working away and I was trying to run my business.

I was doing ALL THE THINGS, listening to too many people, buying too many courses and not trusting myself. The result – I ended up frustrated, overwhelmed and burnout and broke. My confidence was at an all-time low (as was my bank balance) and my mindset was all wrong. I stopped believing in myself. 

I stepped away from my business for 6 weeks (at the time I had made the decision to leave indefinitely) and took time to redefine what success looked like for me. This was when I had the realisation that you have to design your life first and build a business to support it.

Since then, and since returning back to my business, that is what I am doing. I run my business on my own terms and in the best way to support me, my lifestyle, my family and goals. I focus on the 20% which gets me the 80% impact.

Today I am thrilled to run a thriving coaching practice as well as lead a 3500+ strong community called CEO Mastery, where I empower women around the world to start and grow their own businesses so that they too can create lasting impact and legacy in their own lives and the lives of those around them.

I am also the host of the CEO Mastery Podcast, CEO Mastery Daily Digest and the founder of The Collective and have been featured in The Huffington Post, The Guardian and Enterprise Nation. This year I also won runner up in IPSE Freelancer of the Year Awards. 

Besides all this business stuff I am a wife and a mum and I am truly grateful for the lifestyle my business affords me. I get to do the schools runs and school trips. I can take time off and enjoy the school holidays. More importantly I am walking in my purpose and showing them that anything is possible.

I want to encourage you that there is nothing magical about me. I am a girl who had a dream and a deep desire to make it happen, and this is just the beginning. 

What ever you want to create in your life, you can do so…if you believe you can. xo
