She is an expert in business growth and entrepreneurship, and has overcome extreme personal trauma to become a leading expert in her field.
Having become a mother in New Zealand 15 years ago, whilst supporting a client during their multi-billion dollar merger – she later experienced the trauma of multiple pregnancies (12 babies in total including conceiving triplets), sadly without giving birth to another child.
Through a period of personal discovery, she successfully overcame the huge emotional trauma that this period in her life involved.
She is now keen to use this experience to help others identify how they can use the vulnerability they have experienced, which could be fear, failure, grief, sadness or shame, and turn it into power – regaining control of their lives and becoming successful in business and in life as they define it.
Heartbreaking and life changing information I’m sure you will agree.
But her life now only seems to be going one way.
Into a world leaping out of bed, excited by the possibilities that are coming her way.
As she says “I passionately believe that entrepreneurs should not be a slave to their businesses, rather they need to control them, enabling the entrepreneur to enjoy a full personal and family life too. I hope that I lead by example, enjoying an entrepreneurial career while also participating in many other of my life’s passions and personal interests.”
So what made her take on the bold decisions in life instead of crawling into a tight ball and letting the world pass her by?
And has she ever been the classic entrepreneur checking her emails, and twitter feed five times a minute, or has she always seen the right way to do stuff?
