Personal Career Breakthroughs

  1. From Homemaker to Multi-million dollar international Sales leader
  2. Reinvention to Executive coach for professionals and entrepreneurs
  3. Pivot to large organisation to impact policy
  4. Pivot to Online specialist Training and Coach

For around 30 years I have built businesses from scratch and helped others build their own businesses.

For 16 yeas I attracted, trained and led multiple award-winning sales teams around Australia-NZ. I trained, coached and mentored dozens of dispersed sales leaders and teams and thousands of consultants, while leading from the front in high performance. Personal crisis triggered by reinvention, which took me to the corporate world with 3.5 years in IT recruitment. My next pivot came after the Global Financial Crisis set in, where I started my own business coaching and mentoring professionals and entrepreneurs. I loved working with my clients,  watching their own breakthroughs, and though word of mouth began driving new client acquistion, I had tired of putting myself out front to ‘sell myself’.

The result was, that I crafted a pivot towards employment in a large organisation (international emphasis), where I could make a difference on larger scale and be in the buzz of people daily. Mid-2016 I set out on fulltime study and excelled while navigating two major medical issues and maintaining volunteer leadership mentor roles in entrepreneur programs

Then in February 2020 the wind of life changed again. I felt a strong calling to re-enter the Entreprenuerial world to coach and train others globally online. This was a 180-degree turn! My mission is to explicitly spearhead a culture counter-intuitive to commerce, that causes people to thrive by being valued above all. The distinction in this career U-turn was a sudden convergence of people in my life, my inner fire, and recognition that I do my best in crisis.

With Covid crisis, the work world has changed forever; new business models must emerge, but they threaten individuals and whole industries’ futures.  The need for seasoned expertise as mine for reinvention and transformative career positioning, is at alltime high. My ‘call’ back to frontline is distinct and surprisingly exciting.

As a mother of four – and ten grandchildren – I am expert wearing different hats. I bring all this and my own history of persistence, endurance, adaptability and breaking through adversity to my future clients.
