How old are you??? What makes you think you have all the answers?
I am 37 and I definitely don’t have all the answers! I'm constantly on the hunt for teachers that inspire learning and growth.
There’s no licence to do the work that I do. I use a coaching methodology as a framework to integrate two decades of 'leaning into my edge' to guide you to where you want to be.
The second someone tells you that they have all the answers, run. Run fast. My job is to inspire you to remember how to get back to the place within you that has the answers you need!
No, seriously. What credentials do you have?
I did the whole academic thing prior to starting my coaching business. I completed a Bachelor of Science at the Australian Defence Force Academy and then undertook a further 12 months of intensive leadership training at the Royal Military Academy, Duntroon. On completion of my military service, I achieved a Bachelor of Nursing with Distinction and a Master of Health Management.
I also have a wealth of leadership and management experience. I spent 11 years in various leadership and operations positions in the Army (Royal Australian Armoured Corps) including a six month deployment to Iraq in 2005. I then transitioned to work as a registered nurse in the emergency department of the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital before taking on several senior management roles within the private healthcare sector. These roles saw me managing teams of up to 85 staff in East Timor, the Solomon Islands and rural Victoria. My most recent corporate position involved working for a large multi-national medical device organisation in a demanding sales role. After many years of unnecessary meetings and conference calls, I decided to take the road less traveled. Initially, this took the form of becoming a yoga teacher and I completed my qualification with 'Power Living Australia Yoga' in 2011. After some reflection I decided that this was not my true calling and made the decision to create my own business designed to inspire and serve.
I joined 'The Coaching Institute' Master Coach Program and am now a member of the peak international coaching association, the International Coach Guild with the following accreditation's:
- Extended DISC accredited level 2 consultant;
- Certified practitioner of Meta Dynamics;
- Practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming; and
- Certified practitioner of deep-state re-patterning.
Most importantly, I am passionate about serving others who are hungry to make positive change in their lives as I have experienced many of life's challenges and have taken the 'long way' to find my place in the world. I spent almost eleven years in the army and another nine years since leaving to find my calling and passion in life. The Mind Kit has been developed to take the lessons I have learned during the past twenty years to guide you to your highest potential RIGHT NOW!
Final word.... If there’s one thing I’ve learned about life, it’s that your credentials don’t mean shit. Results do.
Do I have to quit my job and sell all of my material possessions to find true freedom?
Hell no. I love the principles of lifestyle design, but not all of us can just quit our job and start traveling the world. Some of us have marriages, families, aging parents, or businesses that we have commitments to.
The underlying principles of life can be translated into whatever situation you find yourself in. It’s your life after all. Not mine, not Tim Ferriss’s, not Richard Branson’s… its all yours!! By leaning into your edge and by letting go of long held beliefs that just don't serve you, you can find the 'freedom' you seek no matter where you are!
It sounds like it was easy for you to create the life of your dreams, but what about me? I’m married, I have kids, I work a job that I hate, and I’m in a lot of debt. What about me?
For one, it wasn’t easy. It’s been a mountain of work. And the only thing that keeps a man or woman from not living the life that they want is their belief on whether or not it’s possible. I have seen miraculous transformations by people who literally worked miracles in their lives by just deciding to do the work.
I promise you, it’s never too late to change. I’ve seen this both in my own life and in the lives of my friends and clients. It’s simply a choice.
I don’t know if this work is for me. Honestly, it scares me a little.
I totally get that. This work is not for the faint of heart. It requires you to take responsibility for the choices you have made and for the results you have gotten. All I know for sure is that we all have choice in life. We can choose the path of least resistance or we can beat our own path! It may be scary but the results are worth it! With every little win, the world opens up to you a little more and gives you everything you ever wanted. I promise.
