If you’re feeling stuck, totally overwhelmed, lacking in confidence, maybe you want to change something but just don’t know where to start and deep down you know you’re staying within your comfort zone. Well!! I am the answer to your prayers!!!
My work is my life purpose and all of my experience up to this point has led me here! To help women 40+ who are sick of where they are in their life right now and want to change it once and for all. I’ve been that woman so I can totally empathise with you and show you how to break down the walls you’ve unintentionally created!
I’ve walked in your shoes, I’ve struggled with burnout, total overwhelm and found myself without any plan for my future.
I grew up in Northern Ireland; an only girl with three brothers. I’m forever grateful to my parents for instilling in me the power of love and the importance of family. I cherish the beautiful memories every day.
I moved to London at 18 years of age where I spent 10 years working really hard on a career in the corporate world and saddling myself with a mortgage at the tender age of 21!! I thought this was a measure of success.
Next move was back to Ireland, to Wexford where I now live. I bought a B&B and spent a period of 5 or 6 years developing it and transforming it into a hotel. This business was my passion!! I just adored it. I loved everything about the building, the customers, my fabulous staff. It was like my child and that’s exactly how I treated it.
With all my heart and soul, I poured everything I had into my beautiful hotel and it became “the place” to dine, stay, celebrate occasions like birthdays, communions, confirmations, weddings, you name it, we hosted it.
The next twist in my journey began with the arrival of twins just before the end of the 20th century!! November 1999 to be precise. What a way to celebrate a new Century!!!!!
There were nannies, child-minders, creches, etc etc. Their lives were intertwined in the business diaries and they almost became part of the business. In fact, I treated my kids like a section of the business.
I worked 80-hour weeks in the hotel and tried to spend as much time as possible with the kids but it took its toll and ultimately there were really hard questions to answer about where my life was going!! The crunch came when I collapsed at Christmas mass from complete exhaustion.
I took the decision to sell my business, my first baby, and embark on a new journey which as it turns out has led me on the path of helping other women avoid the pitfalls and weave their way to a life they truly want, much faster than I did.
Academically I have a degree in business management and a post grad in enterprise and innovation and lots of other qualifications. I’ve spent over 10 years studying different coaching approaches. I’m an accredited Executive and Life Coach, Mindfulness & Meditation Practitioner and a Certified Canfield Success Principles trainer.
I’ve been a business growth coach for years and I can show anyone how to grow their business but what I’ve discovered is that it isn’t the business tools and strategies that hold people back; it’s other stuff around mindset and limiting beliefs. It’s lack of vision, it’s overwhelm, it’s overworking, it’s exhaustion, it’s lack of confidence.
So, one thing that I’ve learned on my journey is you can have life experience, business experience and qualifications but without a solid plan nothing will ever really change!!
If I could teach you only one thing it’s to get clarity around what YOU want; get it out of your head and on to paper. Believe in it and commit to it but without the action steps nothing will ever change.
I want to use my experience to teach you not just how to swim but how to stay afloat. So; let’s get the arm bands off ladies!!! Let’s start swimming!!!
