My business is all about inspiring other female executives, leaders and founders to rediscover their why, a journey of transformation, new beginnings, changing paradigms and metamorphosis. My personal symbol, totem, so to speak, is the dragonfly. It links to so many personal journeys and locations in my life. My jewellery, scarf and accessories, all have dragonflies on them. So, what better name than "Metamorforsuccess".
Nothing is that important in business, that you should compromise your own health for it. Whether it is your own or working for someone else.
Writing down 3 goals to achieve that day and also voicing it, with intention.
As a professional programme and project manager, I make a point of having a clear calendar, plan and goals. One of them, is to ensure my calendar has yoga booked in my diary 3 mornings a week and also ensuring that I have a break at lunch times. Plus, I ensure that I go out in the garden to think and breath properly, usually barefooted, so I can ground myself and re-energise.
Remember to always remind yourself of your "WHY" feeling. What lights you up each day.
That when I did my first 5-day challenge - "Breaking the patterns of stress and burn-out", one of the ladies gave me the most amazing testimonial and trusted me enough to sign her daughter up to my 12-week programme.
When I was doing my first ever interview, which happened to be the Earl of Crom, in Northern Ireland. I did it with my jumper inside out with the label on show. It wasn't until after and I went to the toilet, I noticed. He was too polite to say anything.
Go with your heart and create the business you want to and not stay stuck in the same corporate environment, because it is safe. You've got this. You can do it.

After being made redundant from a Corporate Company I worked for 23 years, I totally crashed mentally and physically. I subsequently, went on a journey of discovery and realised that I had spent far too long, pleasing everyone else around me and lost sight of who I was. I found me and learned to love myself. Stopped putting on the oxygen mask on everyone else first. Part of that, was a remind of how much I love coaching, mentoring and teaching others, watching that light shine in their eyes, when they had inspiration, those Eureka moments and I loved helping them through the transformation. It ultimately gives me joy, seeing others shine. That's my WHY.
I worked for a Global Corporate Company for 23 years, started as engineering planning assistant for 2 weeks. Then got promoted throughout the business, in various roles, until I became a Procurement Director - Head of Programme & Project Delivery. Ultimately, everything I have been a part of, is associated to business improvements, transformation, strategy, change, efficiency and project management.
Inspiring at least one amazing female to rediscover their WHY, each week. So, I that I can see the light shine in their eyes and be a part of their journey to learn to live their life with passion and purpose.

At the moment, my focus has been with mentoring female executives in the Santander programme. I was helping a non-profit making business, a charity in Sheffield, to solidify their why and strategy, to feed the city of Sheffield in a sustainable way. They have put it on hold presently, as they had a number of health issues and big projects to deliver. So, we are starting again later this year.
