Courage Mindset Facilitator
Courage Mindset Speaker
I’m here to help you go from dis-couraged to being confident and clear in your business direction
I’m a courage mindset facilitator and business coach, courage mindset speaker, keeper of personal stories and podcast host of Courage Unravelled. Whether it’s facilitating, public speaking or helping people shape their story of courage, I guide, support, share, mentor and facilitate in a way that fosters confidence, inner strength, self belief and resilience in others.
Through my personal experiences, I recognise that sometimes situations force us into courage. We have no choice but to find it and turn it on. I have been privileged to work with thousands of individuals in business and know the importance of finding the inner strength – the courage within. I help people access that and by doing so help people reach their personal and professional goals.
With 20 years’ experience as a holistic practitioner I know that success in business comes from more than just a good business plan, sales and the right marketing strategy. It’s psychology. It’s mindset. And sometimes this needs to change.
Courage provides the opportunity to grow, define success and achieve it on your own terms while working on and maintaining your physical, mental and emotional well-being. It also means you may have to do some things alone. And that’s ok.
Forced adversity propelled me to change
It was devastating to see people lose their businesses overnight when COVID hit. I felt helpless.
Launching a motivational podcast was my way of giving back.
It was scary because I wasn’t tech-savvy.
But I confronted my fears and have now produced a library of 30 inspiring podcast stories featuring people from all walks of life who share their stories of courage, resilience and grit in the face of adversity.
And guess what? Courage Unravelled was nominated for FIVE business awards in less than 15 months of operating! Who would have thought?
When it comes to growing my courage muscle, I walk the talk.
Leaning into discomfort and moving through fear is not easy – and can be scary. I know, that’s why I’m here to help you as a Courage Mindset Facilitator. Watch what happens when you take back control of your direction with courage, confidence and clarity!
I’ve turned adversity into resilience
I was born and raised in Australia by strict working-class Macedonian parents. I grew up living in two worlds, having to switch cultural identities between home and school.
Witnessing family violence throughout my childhood and experiencing bullying as a young person meant that I learned tolerance, compassion and grit at an early age.
These experiences set me on a path of self-healing. Early adversity empowered me with resilience.
Growth. I see my adversity as a gift as it gave me the resilience to stay in my natural therapy business and remain steadfast during the tough lean months and years. I can now help you turn your challenges into growth opportunities all the while remaining compassionate towards yourself.
I’ve turned adversity into strength
I’ve welcomed the discomfort and challenge of travelling solo: I’ve hiked along the Portuguese coast and traversed parts of the Northern Territory desert.
Backpacking in India and Europe improved my understanding of different cultures.
Travelling the world opens you up to meeting and communicating with people from all walks of life AND tests your ability to overcome obstacles. A culturally sensitive guide can turn your challenge into a great adventure.
