Life isn't always what it seems on the surface. Behind the polished exterior of a successful corporate career, lies stories of inner struggles and the yearning for something more. This is the story of how I navigated the complexities of the corporate world and discovered my path, with all its vulnerabilities and triumphs.
The Perfect Façade
For years, I thrived in the corporate world, leading transformational change initiatives in Ireland and globally. On the outside, my career appeared flawless, and I worked tirelessly to meet conventional norms. But deep down, I grappled with anxiety and overwhelm, as my job consumed me and strained my personal life and relationships.
The disparity between my professional and personal life left me emotionally drained, and I struggled to find a way out. My battle with anxiety and overwhelm often led to me leaving projects or jobs in search of relief. But in 2019, everything changed when I decided to invest in a coach who introduced me to a new way of managing my thoughts and accepting my anxiety. This newfound perspective transformed my life, and the seeds of change started to take root.
Becoming a Coach
Inspired by my transformation, I became captivated by the world of personal growth and development. I pursued coaching with a passion, completing certifications and Diplomas in Coaching with Neuroscience, Leader Who Coaches™, and Coach Certification with the Life Coach School. These tools gave me the ability to navigate the corporate landscape and diverse personalities with newfound resilience and happiness.
Despite my successes as a Corporate Leader, I sensed that something was still missing from my life. I sought guidance from another coach, and together, we started building a life and career plan that aligned with my true aspirations. I had once dreamed of reaching director level in the corporate world, but as I explored my desires, I realised I wanted to forge my own path and create a business that truly resonated with me.
A Jump Into the Unknown
Taking a leap of faith, I left behind my beloved job, colleagues and clients to pursue my dreams wholeheartedly. With the unwavering support of my husband, I embraced the freedom of charting my own course. I learned to prioritise my desires over external judgments, taking back the power over my own life.
