Whilst setting up and running my own businesses I discovered looking after me made my business more successful. When other people were working long into the night I was relaxing and enjoying life. I had more clients, more money in the bank, yet I had more time.
It took me a long time and a lot of wrong turns to work out the recipe. It took me even longer to confidently talk about business growth strategies and in the same breath talk about yoga and holistic practices.
Along my journey I knew business success wasn't all about the latest shiny strategy promising to be the panacea to all ills. Over many years I followed my fascination, qualified in various modalities and became a multi-faceted holistic practitioner. My main practices I work with today include Ancient Thai Yoga Massage, Yoga Nidra, Reiki (Master Teacher), Yoga, Reflexology and Thai Foot Massage. When working with my clients I create a bespoke holistic practice to help with their current business problems.
Simple is Sexy
I believe greatest success comes when we strip away everything leaving the essential to do its job. The same is true in business. I've mastered the art of getting to the root of the problem and I've been told I have a gift for translating complex theories into everyday language creating takeaways you'll "just get"!
I'm high on practice and low on theory - although if you'd like a theoretical conversation give me a shout and we'll geek out over a cuppa!
No Single Path
Early in my career, I discovered the hard way, there was no single answer or road to success. The greatest sustainable strength and improvements came when I quietly weaved together many different thoughts and skills.
Throughout my life I've been pushing boundaries, pioneering new and different ways of thinking and doing. Continually doing what has never been done before, shattering illusions, recreating a new reality again and again, proving the exponential results from holistic thinking and joining the seemingly disparate dots, achieving bigger and bigger goals.
Continually creating has meant I've had to combine ideas from wider and wider topics. Being at the forefront of latest scientific, technological and medical research has been essential. Asking questions to uncover whether the latest gimmick is an advancement or regurgitation often leads me back to the power of ancient wisdom.
Formal Study Too...
I studied - formally and informally. Now I weave together strands and strategies from health, business psychology, environmental psychology, connectedness to nature, neuroscience, marketing, business growth, economics, digital marketing, philosophy, physiology, holistic and complementary health, far reaching worldwide ancient wisdom, and yoga to help people achieve the business success, growth, happiness and peace they're seeking.
I've Worked With
I have worked with, consulted for and mentored leaders, business owners, managers and directors from a broad spectrum of businesses from international organisations, professional service firms, smaller niche businesses as well as people who are passionate about helping improve people's health and wellness both personally and at work.
When we meet, don't be surprised if we are walking, talking business in a natural environment - nature is inspirational when creating your future business.
