I started my business in August 2012 after I had a huge wake up call that found me quitting my job as an Estate Agent, leaving my dysfunctional relationship, renting my house out, selling my car and most of my belongings and traveling round the world for 10 months. During this time I discoveredBuddhism, Meditation, Yoga, Mindfulness and very beautiful, simple and peaceful ways of living and felt called to bring these practices back home.
Originally I trained as a Holistic Therapist and offered Aromatherapy, Massage, Indian Head Massage and Reflexology.
When I became pregnant I knew that I didn’t want to work full time in hands on Therapy so I began training in other modalities that I could teach online.
I did further training in Life Coaching, Nutrition, Mindfulness, Meditation, Yoga, The Law of Attraction, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Reiki and Crystal Healing.
I have culminated all that I have learned into my Holistic Life Coaching Business which I now run virtually.
Tell me a bit more about your inspirations. Why did you want to become self employed?
Freedom - I am a natural born rebel, a free spirit with a passion for freedom and travel. I don’t like being told what to do and get bored quite easily when I am not inspired and creating - I have never been very good in jobs where you have to follow orders and go against your natural instincts and ethics.
I wanted to work on my own terms and be location independent so that I can travel the world whilst running my business.
I knew I wanted to Home Educate my children from them being quite young which has inspired me even more to be able to work in a business that I am so passionate about that fits around our life.
