Growing up during the Troubles in rural Northern Ireland with very few career prospects, the inevitable happened; I left my family and beautiful home and immigrated to England. I was always ambitious to return one day and be able to help my family out and get a really meaningful career. I had a burning desire to succeed. For me success meant money so I worked myself to the bone; 3 jobs in London and I saddled myself with a mortgage at 21. After 10 successful years in the corporate world I sold my apartment and returned to Ireland, taking a leap of faith, I bought a small country house, B&B in the South East of Ireland. Over the next 17 years, I developed and grew the business to a very successful, thriving hotel called "Creacon Lodge".
In the middle of the choas I gave birth to two beautiful children. Over the first couple of years it became clear that one of them needed extra care and attention. I had to decide whether to continue working at that really fast pace, with a nanny taking care of my children or take on my role as a parent to twins (one of whom with autism). In 2006 I made the decision to sell Creacon Lodge and become a full time parent.
I had treated my kids like a business and always had nannies taking care of them, I had no clue where to begin. I didn't know who to turn to, there was no magic wand to wave, there was no blueprint to help me. Over the next few years I put my head in the sand, I put the brave face on, pretended everything was fine and I was coping. I searched for a method to "fix" my child whom I thought needed to be fixed. A few bottles of wine at night followed by several hours of crying really helped! (ha!ha!) I was in a constant state of high alert and stress, and deep down I knew something had to change.
I had always worked outside of the home and I really missed that bustling environment. I began to read a lot about dealing with stress and managing yourself so I enrolled in several coaching programmes and through my studies I discovered that only YOU have the ability to change YOU.
My speciality is helping business owners and managers who are working way too many hours, feel exhausted and struggle with making ends meet at the end of the month. I help them create productive happy teams and a place everyone whats to show up as the best version of themselves.
Working with me, I show YOU how to do stuff much quicker and easier and within 6 months or less we'll increase your time by at least a third. We'll create a happier healthier workplace for you and your team, reignite your zest for life and increase your monthly income so you can enjoy your life!
My dream is to help as many other people out there to find their passion because through all of this I found mine.
