There is not a day that goes by where I don't think about how wonderful it is that I am doing what I love & changing the lives of others with my knowledge & passion. I really am living the dream & helping others to do the same. My journey to become a life coach started with a tragedy when my oldest brother passed away from an accidental overdose in 2010. I was utterly devastated by his passing and embarked on a path of destructive avoidance strategies to try and cope with my loss.
Despite the pain, grief and suffering my family has endured, it is comforting to know that the passing of my brother has changed my life forever and looking back at the dots, I would never have embarked on such a massive life and career change if it had not been for seeking out a life coach as a way over overcoming my own destructive behaviours. It was through researching life coaching that I decided it was the perfect career for me. I was able to use my passion for human behaviour, my degree in biology and fascination with quantum physics to use this career as the perfect vehicle to channel my desire to help people.
I joined The Coaching Institute (TCI) in Feb 2014 & in Jan 2016 I was able to leave my job of 8 years to work on my business full time. I now run regular trainings in Sydney, run my own workshops on Manly beach, do 1 on 1 coaching and I am currently working on my online program.
When I started my coaching journey one of the first things I did was to write a vision statement and create a vision board. Within 11 months everything I once dreamed of had manifested. I am living the exact life I had written about. I now have more time to spend with my daughter and three weeks ago I was able to attend a school trip as a parent helper - something I would never have been able to do 3 years ago.
It took me 2 years of solid work to get to where I am now & it was worth the late nights & sacrifices I made. It really has been the most incredible journey of my life & well worth the investment.
I have now:
* Been in the newspaper 5 times
* Taken to America to contribute to a personal development program for business start ups
* Have become an executive coach for the training company I work with
* Have been asked to design new modules for the training company I work with
* Have been able to leave my job of 8 years to work for myself
* Will be published as a contributor in a book in a couple of weeks
I have followed all of the advice & guidance as provided by Sharon Pearson, Joe Pane, Matt Lavars & the rest of The WOW team at TCI & I'm still finding gold in all the webinars & loving the new Online Learning Portal so thank you for everything!
