FINDING MY ‘WHY’
Then I started working with an Executive Career Coach to figure out what I wanted to do next. For the first time ever, I considered what meaningful work looked like to me. Using my knowledge and expertise to positively impact people’s lives — and show them how to transform their careers too.
I also recognised the pattern of working myself into burnout, which led me to completely overhaul my lifestyle and change my business model. After months of strategically exploring different career paths, I retrained as a professional coach and launched my coaching business in 2018.
For the first time ever, I felt like I’d found the career I was born to do!
AND THEN, MY WORLD WAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN…
Out of the blue, my Dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer. For the next 12 months, spending time with him became my top priority. And while this period and then his loss impacted my ability to build my new business in the first couple of years, I have absolutely no regrets.
Because designing my career around my life and what’s most important to me gave us the ability to spend precious time together. What I learnt through this experience is there’s more to life than working hard and making money. I also want to do work that’s fulfilling, impactful and supports my life.
This set me on a mission to help other high-achievers redefine what success looks like to them and create their careers by design, not default.
