"We rise by lifting others."
- Robert Ingersoll
That lifestyle you dream of CAN become your reality
I'm living proof that if you can dream it, you can create it.
Growing up in a negative environment surrounded by poverty, there were times when I didn't eat just to make the food we had last longer. I wore boys hand me downs and was constantly told I was a "failure" and "no good to anyone".
This experience gave me some valuable life skills I still use today such as budgeting but it also gave me the drive to succeed against all odds.
Nowadays, every month of the year my husband and I are in a different country soaking up the local culture, food, and wine, while running our three companies.
Yes, they are all online businesses now, but they haven't always been. I've also had bricks and mortar businesses too. Several of them.
Starting my first business in my teenage years, I've had a long career as an entrepreneur combined with a career in business development and marketing that spans over four decades (boy that makes me sound old! HaHa).
I've experienced some incredibly high highs as well as some lows that would make your eyes pop if I told you (and I will if you ask me, I'm an open book). There have been moments when I wanted to give up, most of the time I felt like an imposter, and I've had to face more fears than a beginner on a tightrope course.
Through it all though, I've learned...a LOT!
So, if you are ready to work with someone who's been there and done that (and got the t-shirt to prove it) then here's how you can do it.
How I can support you
Got a great business or idea but don’t know how to get it going? Feeling completely overwhelmed and like nothing is working? Then let’s talk. Having taken several companies from zero to multiple six figures in less than two years I would love nothing more than to support you to gain the business confidence you need to succeed.
Tech & Marketing
You might have a great business or idea but are stuck underneath the digital, technical, and marketing. I know how that feels. Let me show you the easy, affordable, and beautiful online solutions that can take you from tech overwhelm to tech confidence. Feel in control and understand what's happening in your business again.
Breaking glass ceilings
Got a well established business, making enough to pay you a wage, but want to take it to the next level? Ready to break through that glass ceiling without working more hours? Together we will uncover what's holding you back, plug holes in your systems, and develop a strategy to scale your business while we re-ignite your passion.
Facing Fears in Business
Being in business can be a scary experience. Often procrastination and self-sabotage are the main causes for a business to fail. Having spent twelve years studying fear and its way of controlling decisions, situations and relationships, I love nothing more than helping someone to recognise and face their fears and discover freedom.
What You Can Achieve
What I've learned from over 35+ years in business is if you don't have the three C's you're not going to succeed no matter how hard you work. I'm talking about courage, confidence and clarity. This is what you will achieve by working together with me.
Together we uncover the courage that's always been there, just hidden under self-doubt. The courage to launch that idea or new product. The courage to promote your business how it deserves to. The courage to take your business to the next level.
Having a business confidante to bounce off your ideas gives you the clarity you need to evaluate every opportunity. Feeling clear about your direction and goals. Having clarity to choose the marketing strategies best suited to ensure your business succeeds.
Piece by piece we rebuild your confidence. Focusing on what you're doing right. Regaining confidence in your decisions. Learning to trust your intuition. Having the confidence to stand behind your brand. As your confidence grows so will your profits.
Are You Ready To Achieve The Success You Deserve?
Having worked in such varied industries, for me it’s not the product, service or industry that’s important, it’s the people I am going to be spending time with. I am blessed to be in the position to choose who I hang out with on a daily basis and I do so carefully. You need to be genuinely motivated, willing to hear the tough stuff, and ready to take massive action to make your life and/or your business the success it deserves to be. If this sounds like you then read on.
A few of the industries I've had successful businesses in
My venture into the fashion industry was born from a combination of necessity, creativity, and pure gusto. I was under age, needed income to survive and finish school, saw an opportunity and went for it. With no formal training I ended up supplying my uniquely designed after five wear dresses to two stores in town
Having always had a passion for fitness, when I saw a need for boutique studio’s to fill the gap between gyms and home personal training it seemed only natural I should do it. The first was such a success I opened another. With twenty-one staff and a turnover in multiple six figures I later sold to move onto my next project.
After going through the painful process of having websites built for me and doing it myself, it was obvious there was a need to create a product where you could get a website that was beautiful, affordable, and easy to manage yourself for startups just like me. Partnering with Kristie and Clark and Blue Dog Websites was born.
When I picked up Fearless Living by Rhonda Britten at an airport twelve years ago I never expected the ripple effect it would create in my life. It was the beginning of the changes in my life I had been searching for and the natural progression was to become a qualified Fearless Living Coach to share that knowledge and experience with others.
