Hi, I'm Tina.
I work with determined women who want out of the rat-race to build and grow their business, their impact, their independence, and their freedom. I take them from self-doubt and 'half-assing' it, to courage, confidence, and nailing it.
MY JOURNEY HERE
I've always put my heart and soul into my work. The time, energy, and passion I invested in my career were fueled by raw desire, determination and, at times, downright pig-headedness! From sales to marketing, to executive leadership, I was relentless and driven. I climbed the corporate ladder quiclky and became an effective leader and successful sales and businesswoman. I built a Fortune 500 executive career that spanned two decades, two continents, and numerous multi-million dollar products and businesses.
Not bad for a girl who grew up in a village where sheep out-numbered people.
Well into my executive career, I was offered a brilliant leadership position in a company I'd respected for many years and I jumped at the chance. I left a job I loved for a job I believed I would love. But, to my surprise, I didn't love it. Despite my efforts, I couldn't find my way in this new company. Unlike previous companies - where I'd always landed on my feet - I just couldn't find my footing.
Things started to go really wrong.
The truth of the matter was that the values and culture of the new company didn't match with mine. It was that simple. It happens. But I made it into so much more than that. I decided I was the problem. I told myself that perhaps my previous success had been luck. I decided everyone in the boardroom was smarter than me. I had the worst imposter syndrome imaginable. From being strong, confident, and outspoken, I withdrew, hid, and tried to fit in. It was a big mistake.
I'll spare you the gory details of my demise but suffice it to say, it wasn't pretty. To cut a long story short, I burned out. I became very ill and had to take a long break from work. My mind closed for business and my confidence and self-assuredness went right along with it. What we think we become. Bloody hell. Buddha was right.
That was the point I accepted that our thoughts create our reality.
After a few months binging on Netflix, Cadbury's mini-eggs, and a healthy dose of self-pity, I decided to dig into this 'what you think you become' stuff. I had been manifesting success for years: The promotions, the business wins, the big successes, so I knew everything was possible. But now I was forced to acknowledge that I'd also manifested my downfall. That acknowledgment marked the turning point in my recovery and began the next phase of my life. I had work to do. I went deep inside my mind and poked around in there. It was a bit of a mess. Thankfully a shred of remaining logic told me that if my thoughts had gotten me into this mess then they were going to get me out. Experience told me that I could achieve absolutely anything I put my mind to but first, I had to get up close and personal with some fairly ugly thought patterns.
I threw myself into learning the science behind what I already knew to be true. I studied positive psychology, neuroscience, energy, and intuition. I dug deep into the power of the mind and its role in creating reality. Then I began experimenting on myself.
I worked endlessly and tirelessly on refurbishing my mind and manifesting the life I wanted. And then I put it to the test. After more than a year away from the executive suite, I decided to return. After the horror stories I'd read about how executive burnout kills careers, I knew the odds were stacked against me. But I did it anyway. Within six weeks of making that decision, I was back in the boardroom.
It was at that same time that I started my first coaching practice. Having lived through burnout - and having gotten pretty awful advice about how to bounce back - I wanted to coach other professionals through their own burnout demons. And that's how it all began. I didn't take the usual "Get more sleep and exercise" approach. I worked with the power of thought and got amazing, rapid results. It had taken me over a year to bounce back, but my clients were bouncing back in three months or less!
Things took an interesting twist.
Burnout kicks you where it hurts and forces you to evaluate your life. Which can be a blessing in disguise. Many of my clients found themselves at a crossroads and many decided to take a different path and change jobs or careers. And that led to my working with them in a different capacity. I became their motivational 'cattle prod' when they hesitated and doubted their ability to succeed. I helped them shift their thoughts from success blocking to success driving, and I watched as they transformed their lives and careers. I helped them get out of their own way and release the genius and brilliance that was already inside them. And it came to me so naturally and powerfully that I knew this was what I was meant to do.
Which brings me to today.
I turned my full attention to transformational success coaching for women who want out of the rat-race to build and grow their business, their impact, their independence, and their freedom. I take them from self-doubt and 'half-assing' it, to courage, confidence, and nailing it. Why women? Because when women succeed so do families, communities, and societies. When women lead and succeed, everything improves.
I packaged my knowledge, experience, education, martial arts training, and my degree from the 'school of hard knocks' and rolled it into simple, fast, and highly effective methods to build courage, confidence, and success.
I see too many brilliant women doubt themselves, stay hidden, and hold themselves hostage in the past or present with untrue stories that keep them small. My 'no-fluff, no-nonsense' approach sees those same women transform themselves, their businesses, their lives, and the lives of their families and clients. I see their genius emerge as doubt and insecurity are left behind. I see them go from stuck to unstuck, take bold steps in their businesses, and make real progress. I see them take control of their lives. I see them succeed. And anyone can do it!
Everything you need to succeed is already inside you.
I help you let it out.
