Let Me Introduce Myself...
There aren’t too many coaches who can say they’ve been coaching since 1991 (yes, I’m showing my age!) but I want you to know that in this world of insta-coaches (you know, coaches who have a fleeting success and then appoint themselves success coaches) and over-inflated claims that there are those of us who ARE the real deal and have been in this game since before Social Media was even a thing!
I know the BUSINESS OF COACHING like the back of my hand having been in it for well over 2 decades and having launched over 200 coaching programs from low cost to high-ticket and helping my clients do the same so you can bet I know a thing or two about being a great coach AND how to grow and sustain a successful coaching business.
If you’re worried about where your next coaching client is coming from trust me when I say you’re on borrowed time, white-knuckling your way to making money in coaching business is no fun and it’s STRESSFUL!
I’ve been mentoring coaches for over 20 years so I see your struggles up close and personal every day in my business, let me say this…there’s an easier way and I can show you how.
While I LOVE being a coach (along with being a Coaching Business Strategist) a few years ago I ALMOST quit coaching for good.
I even stopped CALLING myself a coach.
Coaching had developed a bit of a bad wrap for a while there and with good reason, there are a lot of crap coaches out there, who are promising way more than they can deliver.
I’d hit a wall where I was feeling burned out from clients who drained the life out of me and feeling as though I was lost amongst the masses of wannabe coaches, despite the fact I’d been a qualified coach for close to 20 years and was coaching for close to a decade before that in Martial Arts & Fitness.
I’m one of those people who’s been a coach and teacher her whole life, from 7 or 8 years of age I ran a classroom out of my backyard and loved “coaching” the ones who fell behind!
Sound familiar? In my experience coaches have usually had some form of teaching or coaching in their blood for as long as they can remember.
In my 20’s I began coaching Martial Arts and Fitness (I owned martial arts schools and online fitness businesses) and then when I turned 30 I discovered that you could become qualified in coaching and quickly signed myself up for coaching accreditation through Results Coaching Systems (founded by David Rock).
My natural ability to lead was front and centre and I quickly became Regional Coaching Manager for Victoria where I organised events for coaches and supported them as they built their new businesses.
Coaching is in my blood….and I know people and the BUSINESS of coaching like the back of my hand.
I believe the world needs GREAT coaches and it’s my passion to use my experience and wisdom to help coaches stay in love with coaching (there are MANY reasons we fall out of love with it) and to also build thriving coaching business.
MY AREA OF EXPERTISE IS IN HELPING COACHES MOVE INTO HIGH-TICKET COACHING SO THEY CAN BEGIN CHARGING WHAT THEY’RE WORTH & GET BETTER RESULTS FOR THEIR CLIENTS.
I’ve trained in the Martial Art’s since I was 22 years of age and hold my 5th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo and I’m also an Australasian Martial Arts Hall Of Fame inductee and I was a state and national competitor in full contact sparring from 1991 to 1998.
I like to stay fit, strong and healthy so I’m at the gym or walking by the water most days.
I have a ridiculous weakness for heels (I hardly ever wear!), candles, perfume, flowers and “activewear” ????
I have a fabulous posse of girlfriends and our looooong lunches are legendary (it’s usually dark when I get home!).
I love to laugh and have fun and my family and friends are oh so precious to me.
I also love travel….a LOT! I’ll find any excuse to jump on a plane and explore the world.
I love flying. In fact, when I was 22 I had a pilots licence and was also a regular passenger in the aerobatic planes at the airfield, could NOT get enough of that.
I love luxury and I also love the opposite of that – contrast is where it’s at.
I journal every day and have done since I was 12 years old.
I write every day because I can’t not.
I love my online community, they’re as dear to me as my offline community.
And I am ALL about doing life and business COMPLETELY on my terms and most of my clients are the same.
