This week was the official time to say goodbye to a business I worked extremely hard for over the last 8 years. A business I built from scratch. A business that was more than making money. A business that was about unlocking young people's potential when they often didn't know they had any to unlock. My business changed lives. And that is pretty special.
It has been tough but I know that it was the right decision.
Although endings in any sense can be emotional and more often than not the ones that matter will be life changing - you can also decide to look at them as new beginnings.
Where an ending can feel sad, demotivating and final - a new beginning has unlimited possibilities, excitement and anticipation.
If you are craving a new beginning or have found yourself at the end of one road - then it is time to take on the new challenge - to rise up as the strong powerful woman you are and go get it.
Endings and beginnings are how you choose to feel about them. You get that choice. Yes emotions will be high and probably will be up and down, but you still get to choose how to deal with it.
I achieved exactly what I set out to achieve with my previous business. The lives I touched and the friends and colleagues I made along the way have made it such a special and memorable time for me. The fact that my children know the business inside out as much as I do, and I got to work alongside my amazing mum, also makes it that more special. And the fact I won an award for the work we were doing just shows how we were recognised for this amazing time.
That time has now come to an end. I am not sad. I am proud. And I am so unbelievably excited about what the next chapter holds.
I now have the freedom to follow my heart again and have found the work I was always meant to do. I have been coaching for over 15 years and have mainly worked with clients who may not have wanted to work with me at times, and that can be challenging - now I get to work with amazing, enthusiastic and motivated ladies who can make incredible changes and transform their own and their families lives. I love it.
Having a coach and mentor really opened up my eyes to these new possibilities and I am the kind of woman who needs to be held accountable to ensure I push myself out of my comfort zone and reach my goals - one step at a time. I am focused and driven and have managed to get super clear on what I want.
Having a coach means...
- you have someone outside your family and circle of friends who has your back.
- you have someone you can bounce ideas off and there will be no judgement or negativity.
- you will feel challenged to take brave steps that you wouldn't normally have taken.
- you will celebrate the success that comes with pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone and feeling amazing and exhilarated for doing it.
- being clear about where you want to be and the inspired action that will get you there.
If you want to know more then please don't hesitate to get in touch - totally no obligation to work with me - I just love to hear from amazing and ambitious women like you and you can ask me anything you like?
