When did you realise your love for what you do? This is an interesting question to answer, I’ve almost always just worked on the things I’m passionate about and can’t get out of my head. I guess that’s being an entrepreneur! Since my early 20s I worked in a family business, and then started my own company and have always enjoyed the freedom to create life on my own terms.
What do you love most about what you do? I love building teams who are as passionate about what we’re working on, and about working together, as I am. It’s rewarding to be with a bunch of people moving toward a common vision, and empowering them to operate in a way that works best for them. My businesses are all fully flexible and fully remote, and we identify as teal organisations from a cultural perspective.
What’s the most significant piece of wisdom you’ve received or acquired through life experience?For a long time I thought I had to push, and hustle, and strive toward a big goal. Set strategies and aggressively chase down what I wanted. That mode of operating served me to a degree, however in more recent years I’ve discovered the power of presence and flow. Showing up in each moment to serve now, with what we have at our disposal right now, and staying open to possibility, rather than living in the future and fixating on a predetermined plan.
What’s been one of your biggest challenges you’ve faced and how did you navigate through it? Last year in October I had a breakdown. It culminated after years of not living in my truth and showing up for the world the way I thought I had to. I stopped everything and went home to my sister, and started doing the work. It was a very dark time in my life, ultimately identifying my abandonment wounding and healing in order to return to a place of love and wholeness.
What are 3 of your daily non-negotiables? My morning ritual, drinking plenty of water, and loving myself and everyone in my Universe.
What do you believe is your greatest asset and how does it serve you? My ability to consistently challenge my thoughts and beliefs, and stay open to the possibility there is more, or a better way, or that I can have what I want and need. Over and over again I attain things I previously thought were impossible, and I become more and more aligned and in my personal power which positively impacts the world around me.
How do you elevate and empower those around you? By sharing my stories openly and vulnerably, as they unfold. By moving into my truth more and more each day, opening up space for them to do the same. By walk side by side with those in my life, allowing them to have their own experiences and me to have mine. Not trying to judge, push or solve for others, or putting my stuff on them either (always practicing this anyway!).
What does the word failure mean to you? Learning and growth.
In your opinion, what’s the number one thing that holds people back from going after what they want in their lives? What would you say to them? Their belief system. Our thoughts are our reality, listen to those thoughts for awhile and get in the habit of questioning them, especially those which are absolute. Anything absolute leaves no room for possibility.
If you could share one seed of inspiration for those chasing their dream, what would it be? Meditate, ask the Universe, believe it’s possible and flow toward it each day. Just do what you can do each day with what you have, to move toward it.
