You have a business that offers women life coaching, either as a online course or as a personal coach. Why did you set up the business?
As a young woman, after a divorce and a failed business,
I was desperate to reconnect with myself and I dove head-first into self-help best sellers and scoured the internet for advice.
I earned a Master’s degree and landed a position with the NHS, where I excelled at increasing productivity and developing new programs. I became the youngest female board member as the Director of HR and People Development.
I used the tools I’d learned to counsel my corporate employees and help them create the massive mindset shifts required to uplevel their careers. But I started to realise how limiting my job was. I could only help people within the scope of the company and my real passion was to empower more women.
I’m particularly excited about an initiative we have in the works to mentor and teach entrepreneurship to young women at local colleges and universities. These students will have the opportunity to learn from successful women working in the fields they’re interested in and benefit from their experience by talking to women “in the trenches.”
Why is it so important to help women become empowered?
I have to remind my female clients every day that gender has no bearing on their ability to achieve great things. It has nothing to do with their leadership potential. The challenge is casting aside hundreds of years of conditioning about who we’re supposed to be and what we’re capable of.
The foundation of the work I do is all about mindset and establishing an unshakable belief in what they have to offer so they’re able to create lives and careers they’re excited about.
A couple of years ago I was inspired to share this message in a bigger way so I created my first online course. It’s part mindset overhaul, part project plan and it really encompasses the entire process I use when I work with clients one-on-one. The course is the culmination of years of personal growth as well as my experience working with hundreds of coaching clients.
The material will help women recognise their negative patterns, where those patterns come from, and understand how they aren’t serving them. Inside the course, they’ll also learn how to cultivate new thoughts and beliefs so they can change the course of their lives. The final phase of the course focuses on the step-by-step process I use to help my clients reach the new goals they’ve set for themselves.
Most people think they have to change everything in their lives right off the bat to get from Point A to Point B. But that mentality is overwhelming and unmotivating.
If you commit to taking even the smallest action day in and day out, your life will look a whole lot different in six months or a year. Consistency might not be the sexiest idea but it gets results.
My hope is that this course will become a go-to resource for women everywhere and provide a place for them to become inspired and empowered as well as receive the support they may be too intimidated to ask for.
Do women support each other enough?
As women, we’ve been conditioned to believe we need to compete with one another and that asking for help or support makes us weak. If we can’t “do it all” there must be something wrong with us. We can
accomplish so much more when we have the support of a community of like-minded women behind us.
Being part of a tribe where you feel safe to lean on each other when you’re struggling and to celebrate your wins together is so powerful.
