Firstly, thank you for wanting to find out more about me.
Transitioning from an old life into something rewarding and a life 'on purpose' can be feel like jumping out of a plane for the first time....terrifying!. I know, Ive been there many times.
For years and years I kept selling myself a story about my supposed 'happy and rewarding' life which was based on a mix of social conditioning, expectations of others and exposure to media. That was not the case... no matter how successful I became or how much wealth I obtained, the happiness never really came. Going against the grain, choosing to take my own path and turning inwards for answers (rather than outwards) was the best thing I ever did in my life.
My background has been diverse, full of mistakes, full of colour, excitement and incredible experiences that I would never change. I have travelled the world and thrown myself into every experience and culture with gusto... learning languages (Japanese and French) and regularly putting myself out of my comfort zone. I lived out of a suitcase for many years in my 20's working as a GM for sports for Club Med Resorts and called the Maldives, Mexico, New Caledonia, Indonesia and New Zealand my home, before finally returning to Australia.
In my early corporate career I completely immersed myself in mastering the art of 'sales'. I dedicated myself to achieving sales records and setting new one's, understanding the dynamics of outstanding performance through working as a team and ultimately working out what true leadership meant through incredible mentors and creating opportunity. I have headed up some of Australia's largest health club chains as a National Sales Manager (33 Health Clubs) and was one of the fastest growing direct sales distributor chains in Australia for an international education organisation and ultimately became the (COO) Chief Operating Officer for the same education company working with governments and setting new international sales volume records in the UAE, India and China.
Presently, I am a co-owner in a very successful and trusted property investment company which has over 20 years of experience in Australia and have just released my new project called: http://meditationformen.com.au/
I have meditated since I was 28 years old, after finding what it feels like to be at ground zero, and formed a new life pathway filled with enriched relationships, experiences and learnings. I have studied meditation, mindfulness and yoga for all these years and have followed this passion for knowledge all around the world to listen, learn and experience from leaders in these fields. I have experience and education in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness 1,2,3 & mastery. I am certified in the 'accidental counsellor' course and mental health first aid.
I have lectured and presented to some of Australia's most renowned companies and executives about fitness, health, mindfulness and meditation including Aussie Home Loans.
I'm here to help people re-gain their life. To become the very best version of themselves. To find the balance and the true self and true nature within. To transform and transition to a better place. I'm here to make a difference.
I am a meditator, an artist and a creator ... and my family is my greatest achievement. I live out of Avalon Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches with my family.
I am really looking forward to meeting and connecting soon.
