From Corporate Executive to Entrepreneur

I’ve always known that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives, to touch their hearts, connect deeply and support them in any way I can to achieve their potential and live their best lives.


I’m incredibly grateful for the experiences and opportunities and for the mentors and leaders I’ve worked with throughout my 15+ years in corporate executive roles. I’ve led teams, partnered with Directors and worked across multiple ASX listed companies. These experiences have shaped who I am today and have been an integral part of the path I’ve walked and the lessons I've learned along the way.


Several years ago I started to question what my purpose is and what work I want to be doing. Now, just to be clear, I believe that the work you do and your purpose aren’t necessarily the same thing, but that’s a whole other topic! Certainly, for me I knew I wanted to change not just my role, but completely transform the work I do and the way I do it. I also wanted to move towards doing the work that I love and that I am passionate about, supporting people to make a difference in their lives. I was also looking to have more flexibility and balance in my work week and days, which just wasn't possible in my corporate executive roles.


I believe that when you connect to your passion and your deepest desire, and you fully commit and step into bringing this work to the world, you start to align to your highest potential, you step into your zone of genius and the ultimate result is you start to thrive. This thriving is not just in your work but, in who you are, and for me that is as a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.


My most rewarding days in the office were when I was facilitating programs with leaders around leadership, mindfulness and wellbeing. And some of my very best moments were in those conversations, one to one, where, as the coach, I was trusted to support and guide people through deep insights that slowly unraveled and revealed themselves.

I’ve also coached people who have trusted me and shared their ambitions and the new path that they want to take. Some, it’s about brainstorming issues that have been keeping them awake at night, or how to find that balance between all the daily demands that they are juggling.


This is the work that lights me up, fills my cup and is where I am the very best version of myself and where I thrive. This is the work that is in alignment with my purpose and passion.


Stepping out of corporate roles and moving into the world of entrepreneurship is one of the most exhilarating moves I’ve made, it was also extremely daunting. I’ve wanted to make this move for years but it just wasn't the right time for as we know, divine timing has a role to play.


How did I do it, how did I get here?


To make such a transformational change, I knew that I would need support and coaching (with a side of ‘significant’ personal development and up-leveling) and to work with someone who has been there and done this, who has made this transition themselves, and who would know how to guide and support me each step of the way.


I found this person, someone with whom I developed a deep trust and who over many years coached me through this change. It wasn’t just coaching to step out of the corporate roles and start my business, it was deep insightful, transformative coaching that ultimately changed every area of my life. This has given me the confidence, clarity and conviction to walk my path; a path that is absolute and deeply aligned to who I am.
