Describe yourself in one sentence?
Essential Oil Educator, Resilience + Health Coach, Preventing + Putting Out Health Spot Fires So You Can Thrive!
What is your superhero power?
The ability to take life’s lemon’s and turn them into lemonade.
What is your WHY for being in business?
I walked freely on this earth for 24 years, only to have everything that I knew, everything that was familiar, taken away in the blink of an eye.
Fast forward 14 years, and whilst I’m world’s away from my critically ill 24 year old self, the girl lying completely paralysed in the hospital’s critical care unit, I can’t deny that I still live with ongoing chronic health challenges. The silver lining? I’ve now exited the corporate world my younger self was determined to dominate, and instead done a complete 180 to find my ‘light-my-soul-on-fire’ purpose in the health and wellness space. I’m building a business that helps women AND fills my own personal cup, allowing me the freedom, finances and flexibility I need in my own life. It’s a win-win!
What is your business elevator pitch?
I teach women how to prevent and put out health spot fires so they can thrive in life!
Translation: It comes down to proactive action. Ideally, that action is early enough in the piece so as to prevent the health crisis. But if that ship has already sailed, then our focus shifts to putting out those fires as best we can and working to prevent new fires from sparking up.
Regardless of circumstance, whether the health warning light is flashing or you’re already deep in it, there’s always something that can be done. You can reclaim your health. You can thrive in life!
Share a unique business challenge you have experienced, and how you overcame this?
I think any entrepreneur struggles with finding the ‘balance’ of trying to do everything and not burn out, particularly in the early years of business. I have an added challenge – my brain says ‘GO!’ and my body says ‘Whoa there Missy!’
Put simply, if I do too much, my underlying medical issues make themselves VERY well known to me. It can be quite frustrating as I’m very driven and extremely on-purpose, but it’s a continued lesson that if I don’t put my own oxygen mask on first, then I’m not going to be of service to anyone, least of all myself.
What’s got you “edge-of-your-seat” excited in your biz right now?
I’m starting to put myself out there more with speaking gigs, sharing my story in the hopes that it reaches the ears of the people who need to hear it the most. If one of those people is you – I hope you draw inspiration to examine your own life, to better identify what it is within you that has gone unaddressed for too long, to read the early warning signs, and to take that proactive action when it comes to your health and wellbeing. Don’t sit back and do nothing. Complacency leads to regret, and I don’t want that for you. YOU don’t want that for you!
