The program seemed to offer me the chance that as a coach I’d have some flexibility

Yeah I'd be able to still get to to be with the kids. Yeah raising them. So that was the most important thing I had many other skill sets that all would have locked me into careers that means I'd had no freedom to be flexible.

"Coaching is not about just creating another job. We know a lot of people do that when they get into a business"

Coaching is not about just creating another job. We know a lot of people do that when they get into a business. They build another job that they don't really like vs. a career or something that they can fall in love with something that that is their mission.

I didn't know it is fear but I was so glad there were people on the phone. I feel like I could speak and spend so much time of the people we could call. You know back then to get support anywhere from the team he'd get me started and yeah.

“I was looking for my place in the world and where I could really contribute my best to others but found that all of these occupations touched on an area of my interests and developed my abilities and knowledge to a point but didn’t go any further than that . . .”

I studied a degree in Psychology and Counselling...

And I enjoyed being introduced to human thinking and behaviour. However, I was apprehensive in finishing a masters in this because I wasn't certain that I felt this was the most powerful tool to help the people I wanted to impact. The books and research just wanting seeming to apply to those I saw struggling.

Going on to work in and study HR / training and development, I got to learn about business. However, I found that I didn't get the opportunity to really help people or work through different issues that they were coming up against in life.

After that, I decided to become a Secondary School Teacher because I thought that I could really help them and offer some guidance and assistance in their time of need. I enjoyed working with youth and helping them learn about life. At the same time, there's a lot of other superfluous work that didn't link with my purpose of helping people become their best.

You know back then to get support anywhere from the team he'd got me started and yeah.

So that that amount of belief in me really it was what was carrying me.

Somebody else continuously believing in you. Before you believed in yourself...

It was so easy and there was something simple for me because life needed to get better.

You know I don't think it's unique to us that we have griefs and traumas and losses and even loss of identity all sorts of things were going on but I knew the one thing I knew was something had to change. That was my tipping point.

Something had to change. And I loved it.

I think it was a really successful strategy to say you know what I'm going to make it this year and I'll find out if it's not going to make it good on and pull my attention.

I kind of reclaimed a lot about myself in this journey and all of that protection that I come out of that overarching frame through the coaching that I had in my own life which was available through the program...

The support here. I then was able to make a decision to saying 'Yes' to myself.

And that opened up something in me that kind of reminded me of who I was before.

"The community just gives so much support, and I don't think I would of made the decision if it wasn't for the awesome community!"

I love community. I'm bringing that engagement in, so all my work now has an element of one on one.

But I work with people in groups. So those retreats are we go away and I create luxury experiences and we reclaim all sorts of parts of ourself.

"Know if you want to empower anyone. You must empower you. You must empower you so most that I know now and for me and I was tough on myself and I try as it is and that the program and the space and the community do it."
