Yin and Yang: How do you balance work and family?
I love the saying “Align don’t Hussle” and aim to find deep fulfilment in the flow of family and business life – easier said than done! I have worked hard to create healthy boundaries in business, with family and with friends and to clearly articulate work and family hours. I have come to accept that at times, there won’t always be an equal balance but ensure that I give my all in a way that isn’t detrimental to me and especially my family. I have worked hard on not being “bogged down” with Mumma guilt and ensure that I take intentional time for myself – away from the screens and the physical demands of parenting (whether that be ten minutes or a whole weekend). I trust in the power of the moment and believe that time for self-care, meditation and mindfulness allows me to use each moment (as a parent or in business) to allow my heart to lead and trust. I truly believe that all is working out for the greater good for me, my family and clients – that is more than enough for me!
The Drive: What challenges have you overcome?
There have been many challenges along the way, but each has provided precious lessons. One of my personal challenges has been having confidence in saying no to work that isn’t in alignment with my true purpose. Claiming my own gifts and self-worth and confidently being able to share my magic with the world through pure self-love and acceptance has meant that I have had to do LOADS of my own work on true self-love and acceptance.
For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
Pros: I am doing deeply fulfilling work that lights me up and helps other women do the same. My daughters see me work – my way – they are a constant source of inspiration and a reminder that work is
Cons: It’s hard to switch off/create healthy work hours/biz boundaries! Surrendering and accepting that administration, book work, having the confidence to outsource and know that don’t have to do it all
Hopes and dreams: What next?
I’m currently writing working on my fourth book and am releasing a GBTS: Intuitive Oracle deck in the spring. I hope to continue to support women to claim their own soul-purpose using inner-peace and empowerment. This year I hosted a community festival called “Soul Fest” more than half the stores had unlocked their gifts and businesses through my guidance and soul support.
I look forward to supporting more woman, mainly, women in business to tune into their unique powers and allow their heart and soul to lead. Doors are opening soon for my online course “Trust in YOU – Trust in soul”, I would love to support any parents who feel drawn to join us there.
