After going through an abusive marriage and an emotionally draining divorce, I moved halfway around the world to Japan because I wanted to escape my embarrassing past. Not being sure of what I wanted to do with my life, teaching seemed like the next best thing and for two years I was content, not happy, just content.
One day I woke up and realized that I just didn’t want to do it anymore. I wasn’t being used in the classroom and the creative spark that I once had was slowly but surely dying. Weekends and holidays became my time to escape because that’s when I was able to work on my blog and pursue the other interests I had that made me feel like I was actually making a difference in the lives of other people.
I had been dancing with the idea of starting my own business for a while or potentially turning my blog into a business but because the job I had paid a decent salary I never really took things seriously. Everything came to a screeching halt when my supervisor called me into a meeting to let me know he would not be renewing my contract for another year. That meeting completely shifted my thinking because I realized that this was the kick in the butt I needed.
With no real alternatives or very little savings, I decided that something big needed to change. For far too long I had sat down and watched my life pass me by and now was the time to step up and take charge for the first time in my life. I decided that I was going to start a business (some kind of business) that would help women transform their lives and build better futures for themselves regardless of their past failures but I had no idea how I would do it at the time.
No-one really told me just how difficult starting your first business is and for months I was stuck and failing terribly. My desperation led me to invest in a coach who promised he’d be able to take my business to the next level but never did and I was out $5000 before I’d even gotten started. For months I felt like I was pulled in a million different directions because I was trying to put together pieces of information from what felt like a million different websites and free courses just to try and figure out what I needed to do to build a profitable online business. I was unfocused and hopelessly lost and I only had about $1000 left in my account. It felt like my dream just wasn’t meant to happen because everyone else was miles ahead of me.
I was determined to buy them their dream home and give them enough money to retire in peace and enjoy the life they had left without having to worry about money. Deep inside I also wanted to make sure that I didn’t have to stress about money again. I wanted to be able to travel the world, meet new people and build a better life for myself and my family so I kept going.
My determination paid off and in less than one year I gained my Master Life Coach certification. I was now proudly certified in cognitive behavioural therapy, happiness and success coaching, goal setting to success and confidence coaching. These are certifications that I never thought were once possible. How crazy is that?
In the same year, I left the safe, small island I had been living on for so long and moved to exciting but scary mainland Japan because I was determined to move into the unknown and challenge every fear that I had so I could jump in completely. This was the best decision I have ever made and I have never been happier. Having the ability to help talented, driven female entrepreneurs just like you to change the way they think about themselves and uplevel their business has given me the purpose that I was missing.
I’m now a certified Toastmaster and have conducted many virtual masterminds with hundreds of women from all over the world. I’m also more confident and secure in who I am, and the gifts I have to offer to the world. I use to shy away from doing Facebook and Instagram lives, speaking my truth and sharing my story (the real me) because I was worried about what everyone would think, but to be honest, I’ve never been more comfortable with myself than I am right now.
People once told me that it would take me years to heal and grow but it didn’t. It took me a year of trying, failing and consistently working on my personal development to become the woman you see today.
- I’m clear, focused and committed,
- I’m finally living my purpose and finally making a difference,
- The relationships with my family, friends and with God have improved dramatically, and
- The spark that was missing for so long is back and brighter than ever.
