I am on a mission to create a movement that changes the narrative on what midlife means for women.
Midlife is not a crisis, it's a time to recalibrate.
I choose to make this chapter my best one yet!
So, how did I get here?
I’m a Gemini (of-course I talk to myself), curious entrepreneur, intuitive coach, mentor, wife, and mum to 4 amazing humans - who enjoys living life on my own terms. I'm partial to wine and chocolate and self care is my priority.
After leaving school at 14, I spent nearly 30 years in the corporate world and I've spent thousands on my education (I have a Master of Business and I'm a Certified Busines Coach) and I'll ever stop learning!
In 2015, I needed more flexibility with 4 young kids, and I wanted to make a bigger impact, so, I took the leap and started my own consulting business Cider Consulting (yes named after the drink). I built a thriving business helping business owners streamline their businesses, save time and make more money, and I've never looked back.
But, after 5 years, the hustle got tiring, I no longer had the fire in my belly for consulting. I started dabbling in coaching and mentoring, and in 2019 I took The Passion Test. I discovered that coaching was my passion. When I was coaching I lit up, I was energised and it was fun. I became a Certified Passion Test coach and a Flow Facilitator.
In 2020, it was my time! I made the brave decision to shut down my consulting business and became a certified business coach. On a quest to find myself, I turned to inner work. I found tools to help me with flow, passion, habits, and energy. I created myself, I now incorporate these learnings into my coaching philosophy.
In early 2023, we moved from our family home. I felt stuck in the middle, midlife felt messy, I was unmotivated and unsure of who I was. My kids all had their licenses and didn't depend on me anymore - my calendar was bare and I was bored. We weren't quite empty nesters but life had changed. I needed to change. I looked at all of the areas of my life and chose to step forward and reconnect with myself and recalibrate.
I went searching for midlife support and all that came up was "midlife crisis" or "menopuase", now ladies, let me tell you, there is more to life than midlife and this sure isn't a crisis. It's my time to SHINE.
After 6 months of doing the inner work reconnecting with myself, recalibrating, finding freedom, unearthing happiness and burning my vision board and taking the action to make everything on that dream board my reality (no longer a dream)- I am living my best life (the first half was just a dress rehearsal)!
Fast forward 6 months and I can now honestly say I am writing the best chapter of my life! I changed the way I think, I feel amazing, I have opened up new opportunities, I am living IN my dream house, I feel healthier, I am happier, my life has meaning, I am working on better relationships AND I HAVE FOUND FUN AND FREEDOM!
