Rewriting My Life Script!
From TV Producer To Transforming People's Lives
Having worked in Television for nearly 20 years, twelve of them as a Producer, I certainly know what stress, burnout and lack of work-life balance are. Don't get me wrong, I had the time of my life being in such an exciting environment every day. I worked alongside many famous faces, went to loads of glitzy showbiz parties, but for every one upside, there were lots of downsides. Like so many other industries the hours were long, the deadlines were tight and the pressure to deliver was immense. I thrived on the adrenalin and the 'work hard, play hard' life for years, but then children came along and my priorities changed. Often I found myself getting home after my 2-year-old had gone to bed, I was going to work before she was awake, I often had to work weekends and I was constantly feeling guilty about something.
Then one day while I was out in the car running errands, my daughter in the backseat and me 6 months pregnant with my second child, I had a crash! Thankfully everyone was ok. It was totally my fault. I drove into the back of a car. But one thing that kept going round in my head was that at the very moment of the accident, I'd been thinking about work. Clearly, the only person at fault was me, I should have been paying more attention, but I couldn't help thinking that this was life, the universe or whatever you want to call it, telling me that something had to change. I couldn't continue spinning all the plates. It was my crossroads - the moment I knew I had to decide - do I continue living my life like this or do I choose another direction?
HELPING OTHERS CHOOSE THEIR PATH TO GREATNESS
In the end, I decided to leave my job and the career I'd known for nearly 20 years and start again. My mission now is to help other women who want to turn their lives around, live on their terms and start enjoying all aspects of life again. Don't get me wrong, change is bloody scary, but what's your options? Keep on going down the same old track of unhappiness and unfulfillment or pivot and re-define how you want your future to look? Take the leap! Build a life created by choice, not chance! NOW is the time to take control of yours!
