“Transforming Corporate Travel”: the tagline of my LinkedIn Profile. That’s what I set out to do two years ago. I had been frustrated with myself and my #career for some time, wishing for something for substantial, satisfying to do. Something that aligned with my whole self. I thought I’d find it in the arms of independence, and to some extent I did. And I love the #challenges and projects that have come out of this work (not least writing the first book on the industry).
It turns out, I transformed. Not the industry, but rather myself. It’s been a long journey, but I’m finally clear about my life’s purpose and goals. Today, I’m living the dream I had two years ago: time to take care of my Self, time to walk in the Cotswolds, time to spend with friends, time to focus on work, energy and passion to guide me.
Towards the end of last year, I had the good fortune of being introduced to Jude Elliman, executive coach and partner of the Listening Partnership. It came after I had run what felt like the 134th new business idea by a friend. I felt stuck, but also very close to where I wanted to be. Think of it as being in a locked room that you know you have the #key for to get out, but you just can’t find it.
During my #coaching #journey, it transpired that what I’d really like to do is help people who, like me, got stuck. Who are in good careers but have lost the #passion or are disillusioned as far as their true contribution is concerned. The ones who are beating themselves up about not being happy with what they have, because to the world it looks like they have it all.
It’s time for a new chapter in my life, and hopefully in the lives of many others. Spell your Life is the name of my new coaching business. The word ‘spell’ has, of course, two meanings:
To spell – in the sense of spelling a word, but also being clear about the word
To spell – casting magic and believing in your own powers.
During my coaching sessions, I’m giving you space to find personal #wisdom: what works form you, what doesn’t and how to access this at will. After this journey of #discovery, we design a plan for your dream future that's truly fulfilling.
Explore your past.
Understand your present.
Fulfil your future.
I'm looking forward to supporting your dream every step of the way.
