How often have you hated even the idea of what you’re doing, but you still keep doing it?
I spent almost 20 years in a career that was eating away at my heart and slowly suffocating my soul.
Then, in the summer of 2013 I did what many people dream about, I left my corporate career to launch my own business; as a personal stylist.
A business I never truly loved.
However, once you’ve invested time, money and energy into something – and experienced a degree of success – it can be difficult to quit.
However, at the end of 2016 I did just that, I quit my personal styling business. A decision I made more difficult than it needed to be. If you’re interested, you can read about my journey in Be Brave Enough To Quit.
In retrospect, I should have quit much sooner, but what I learned from that experience is that knowing when to surrender and let go, is equally as important as knowing when to hold on with everything you’ve got. I also learned the value of naming what you truly want, without apology.
I’ve been coaching on and off in the 10 years since I completed my initial accreditation as a Life and Personal Performance Coach with The Coaching Academy. I also hold a post-graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology from Birkbeck, University of London.
Throughout 2017 I focused on my work as a coach, which prompted me to take a close look at the life coaching industry.
When I quit my personal styling business, I reserved my right to change and shed versions of myself as I grow. Which means that once again, I’m changing the way I work. I’m currently writing about my view of the life coaching industry and putting together a proposal for a new way we can work together.
I’ll be sharing both of these things here, please come back soon.
In the meantime, if you’d like to say hello and introduce yourself, or you have a collaboration proposal or a question for me, then you can either email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form below.
