I grew up in a large family with no dad – he had the audacity to snuff it when I was just 5 years old. First life lesson learned: nobody is on this planet forever.
I didn’t go to uni like my friends did. I got stuck into work straight away so I could give my mum housekeeping money. Thankfully I had good practical skills (thanks mum) and knew I could always do something to earn money. But those top jobs, well, they were for ‘other’ people. Clever people, privileged people, not for the likes of me. I thought those ‘other’ people were born with some special attributes that I’d never have.
That’s what I told myself for many years, but it wasn’t true.
If I could go back in time to tell the old me that one day I’d be be working on business and marketing strategies, designing brands, managing high-profile website builds, running teams in the top marketing agencies in London and working as a change management consultant, all while working for myself – I would laugh in my own face!
I started to turn other aspects of my life around too. Knowing what was possible, things started to rub off on those around me. I suddenly realised I’d been inadvertently coaching friends and family. Then I realised I’d been inadvertently coaching my clients when I had a marketing business. And to top it off, I saw that I’d coached myself to a completely, utterly new life.
“Thank you so much for the good work and support you have given me clarifying my business idea and direction. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without you.”
~Michael, business consultant
This stuff works.
Now I’m all about coaching individuals who cannot see a clear path, but are craving a better life for themselves. People like you, who are full of potential and have so much to give – and so much to enjoy.
Life’s short, give it a leg up. Let’s start now.
