I’m AnYes and I work with successful women who, like you, want to take back control of their life because their business or career is ruling it. I help you connect the dots between who you are and what is important to you so that you can step into the driver’s seat and create the successful and fulfilling business or career that will support the life you want for yourself and those around you.
I know what it’s like to let my career and later my business completely rule my life. For twenty-five years, I climbed the corporate ladder, doing what was necessary to be successful. At forty, I knew something had to change, but I wasn’t sure what. I came across a coaching training and was instantly drawn. Out of fear of not being good enough I over-prepared and over-trained. I became an expert in Mindset, Self-care, Personal Branding and Personal Effectiveness. Then I finally dared to set up my own business, but I was so passionate about helping people that I had to learn the hard way that being great at what you do is one thing, but running a business is something completely different. I juggled with a lot of trial and error, but once I started running my business as a real business I had a very successful six-figure business. And that’s of course when I lost control and re-created myself the rat race that I had left in the corporate world.
That is also when life decided to throw a new challenge at me. My personal life fell into pieces leaving me homeless at 58. I first had to move in with one of my sisters and stayed there for one year. But, instead of stepping into victimhood I decided to take charge and saw this as a unique opportunity to reconsider all my choices in life and business. One of the things I understood in that process is that I had only worked as a coach in the corporate world by fear of financial insecurity. But that’s never been where my heart was. That’s when I decided to embrace my mission to empower women.
The other thing I did was to move to London. Undoubtedly, arriving in London at 58 with two suitcases, eight weeks of house sitting and without any income or savings was a very scary move. I must admit that I woke up more than once in the middle of the night with a panic attack wondering how I would make it to the next day. But, instead of focusing on the fear, I held onto my faith that it would work out and onto my vision. I challenged my beliefs and dared embracing the unknown; I thought out of the box and tested doing things differently. I reconnected the dots between me, my life and my business and as a result, in less than six months, I managed to thrive again, stronger than before!
There are things I strongly believe in: Role modelling and the ripple effect are powerful change-makers and vulnerability is a strength. Being yourself is not always easy, but success and fulfillment cannot be reached without it. We always have a choice and we can all create a life that fulfills us. We cannot take care of others’ needs if we do not practice self-care first.
