The Ass Kicking You Need

It’s my son’s 4th birthday! I want to share this day with you because I’ve been reflecting back on the years since his birth. A LOT has changed. 

People see the success of where I am now but I want to tell you what life was like for me back then.

Three and a half years ago we were broke. 

When I say broke, I mean absolutely BROKE! 

My husband’s gym business struggled through Christmas every year and we were scrounging for coins in the car to buy bread. 

Fast forward to now, a whopping five thousand women have come through our programs from 45 countries. The podcast has almost 1.3 million downloads and I record every episode from my car.

So what happened in between? I realised my own truth and power. 

In my heart I knew I was not here to mess around, to be miserable in my workplace, to play small or to have a mediocre life. When I truly accepted this, everything changed. 

I started my own coaching business and worked my ass off to build it up to where it is now. 

Sometimes you have to be pushed to the absolute edge before you wake up and do something. 

I’m not saying I don’t still have self doubt and fear. Of course I do! I just don’t let it run my life or hold me back. 

So on this birthday celebration day, I’m honouring my own journey since my son’s birth and the amazing life and business we have built. And I want you to do the same. 

Don’t let your own limiting beliefs stop you. 

The woman who believes she CAN will change the world (and make money while doing it!)
