Inspired by a love for her family, and, battling with her own mental and emotional wellbeing, Ainee Cha was motivated to change her career in a direction that would help others through mindfulness and self-discovery. This led to the launch of her business, Ainee Cha Mindfulness / Self-Discovery / Life Coaching.
The passion: What inspired you to set up your business?
Love. Love. Love. My inspiration comes from the love of my husband, Tommy, and both my children, Tristen and Ayden. Love is the most powerful force that surrounds us. The love of being a mother, a wife, a sister, and a child to my parents is my source of inspiration. I’m motivated to leave a legacy: to be an inspiring example to the world, to show them the beauty of love. The love that creates positive values, unconditional acceptance, forgiveness, compassion and makes life better for people.
Life is not always rainbows and sunshine. At some point, we will have to face challenges and obstacles regardless of our age. But I always saw life’s adversities as a signal for change and growth. I am the mother of two beautiful children; I reckon that it’s only natural that we want our children to grow and flourish. I want to be there for my children, and I want to provide them with the best I can because I know that someday they will have to face the challenges life brings. In order to do that, I know I must lead by example and mindfulness has proven in my own experience to be a foundation skill I can give to my child to de-stress, navigate difficult emotions, be less reactive, more focussed, and ultimately nurture kindness and compassion.
I aspire to bring mindfulness to kids, teens and youth because they are our future. The Dalai Lama once said, “If every eight-year-old is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation”.
Setting up my Mindfulness / Self-Discovery / Life Coaching allows me to create a positive difference in the lives of the people I cross paths with. I understand that being a mother is not easy, let alone for working moms; women who are constantly battling between work and family. My intention is to support your family’s mental and emotional wellbeing. I want to share this foundation life skill that I have cultivated to support you, your child and your family.
I am inspired to share my love, to love and be loved…
The launch: How did you start out in the beginning?
I did not start off as a mindfulness and self-discovery life coach. In fact, I was an engineering and reliability management consultant, trouble-shooting engineering problems. I started off trouble-shooting my own challenges, obstacles and adversities I was faced with within my professional and personal life. I was battling with my own mental and emotional wellbeing. And it was through mindfulness and my own introspection and self-discovery that I uncovered my passion and the true purpose of my existence. So, I decided to empower myself to follow my passion and start my own mentoring and coaching business to support your family’s mental and emotional wellbeing.
The innovation: What was the biggest breakthrough for you with your business?
To be honest, the biggest breakthrough for me is really the fulfilment I get in my coaching and mentoring. The ‘a-ha’ moments in a coaching session and the joy when I see children just being themselves – calm and happy each time after our sessions together. It is heart-warming to hear them say ‘I feel safe and calm’, ‘I feel as though I am floating in the clouds’, and ‘I feel happy when I breathe’.
