Hi, I’m Karen, here’s my story
Hi, my name is Karen, nice to meet you! We all have a story so I thought I’d share mine here.
My marketing background
Throughout my 17 year marketing career, I worked in corporations of all sizes in a variety of industries. For many of those years I loved it but as the years rolled by I felt less and less fulfilled and started to question whether this was my true calling in life.
Whilst working long hours developing campaigns to help add more the the company’s bottom line, I no longer felt any sense of achievement and I didn’t feel valued. What I really craved was to make a difference in peoples’ lives so that I felt my time at work was rewarding.
An unexpected setback
During the latter years of my marketing career I developed a chronic mysterious health problem that left the medical profession stumped and finally resulted in me having to give up work. I searched online for ways to heal myself naturally through nutrition and lifestyle. After much research and becoming best friends with You Tube I found inspiration from some amazing people – one woman in particular who had cured herself from my condition through a variety of natural healing modalities and gone on to become a naturopathic doctor. Following several consultations with her and putting into practice what I had learned online, my efforts began to pay off. It was a difficult journey. I had relapses and setbacks which at times had me wondering whether any of this was working. However, slowly but surely I improved. This changed my mindset and enabled me to think that anything is possible.
My coaching journey
I knew then that marketing was no longer the right career for me. Given my year long research into health and nutrition, Health Coaching originally sprang to mind so I attended a short coaching course hosted by The Coaching Academy. From that point on I was hooked! Coaching was definitely for me although I found other aspects of coaching more fascinating – in particular how we can use our own inner resources and the power of the mind to make positive changes in our lives. So I went on to study NLP and Time Line Therapy and am now a fully certified NLP Life Coach helping people transform their lives for the better!
I specialise in helping professional women switch from demanding, corporate 9–5 roles to making a rewarding living and building a dream lifestyle simply by doing what they love.
Has corporate life lost it’s sparkle? Are you feeling unfulfilled in your career? Want to earn money doing what you love? You’ve come to the right place
It wasn’t so long ago that I was like you but I didn’t take action. I wanted to stay safe in my corporate job with the regular salary all the while knowing that I was deeply unhappy.
I know that this (as well as other things) affected my health and I really wish I’d taken action sooner. Corporate burn-out is becoming increasingly common. More and more people are looking to work on their own terms doing something they love and making a real impact rather than being stuck in the hamster wheel drowning in emails, meetings and long commutes.
