I’m basically a perfect human, who has all her sh*t together and knows the secret formula for getting mega-rich, permanently travelling the world with my laptop and basically smashing goals in all areas of life. Not to mention documenting it all in perfectly filtered photos on social media. Y’know, like all those other internet-famous life coaches? That’s what you want to hear, right?
No? OK, FINE… here’s the truth instead…
Before becoming a coach – I had actually achieved a few of those things and it wasn’t exactly a terrible way to live! I believe everyone gets to a point where they think about pursuing “something better” than whatever life they have defaulted in to… but only some will actually start doing anything about it. Hopefully – if you’ve made it as far as reading this – you’re in the latter category.
Freedom and happiness looks and feels uniquely different for every individual. I became a coach to help more people figure out their version because I believe the world will be a better place when we simply have more happy humans in it!
I am absolutely not perfect. But in the specific area of figuring out who I am and being able to leverage that to make a living, I’ve walked my talk and got results. Which is what I personally look for when I invest in a mentor or coach.
I’ve invested almost $200k of my own money in to personal growth, mentorship and professional development. As I write this, I am looking forward to turning 40 with an individual net worth of close to 7figures. (Albeit in today’s money, that’s not a huge amount in a lot of places).
I’ve had the freedom to spend plenty of time experiencing new adventures, travelling, dealing with life’s curveballs, visiting friends all over the world and quality time with family. That last one being the most important having lost a few of them since.
Since 2015, I’ve essentially been working on my own terms, leveraging a variety of methods to earn income online – primarily to maintain location independence. This remains a top priority for me for various reasons. Even thought it’s hard to beat the Gold Coast of Australia – where I am now based.
Quitting my corporate job in London 18months after starting my first internet ‘side hustle’ was by far one of the best decisions of my life to date in terms of a contributor to my happiness. It’s easy to say that with the benefit of hindsight… it definitely wasn’t all rainbows and unicorn farts getting to that point! 🌈🦄💨
There’s no influencer-esque “I was down to my last $27 sleeping on my mum’s couch” story here. I had a decent childhood, parents divorced when I was 6, both hard working middle class types. Followed the traditional ‘system’ with a state funded education etc.
Losing a family member in 2013, was a huge wake-up call in terms of how the aforementioned ‘system’ doesn’t seem to serve the greater good of most people’s happiness – or that of society on a much greater level.
Some people seem to want to know an even fuller chapter and verse of my background. If you’re one of them and would like to keep reading – thank you, I’m flatterered – you can do so here!
