Courage Mindset Programs for women in business

Sana Turnock


I’m here to help you go from dis-couraged to being confident and clear in your business direction

My holistic approach guides and supports women build a courage mindset in business to foster confidence, inner strength and resilience when business challenges arise.

Through my personal experience, I recognise that sometimes situations force us to find our courage. We have no choice but to find it and turn it on. I have been privileged to work with thousands of individuals and 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.

Top takeaway

A courage mindset means you get to 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.

Courage Unravelled

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 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 is up for FIVE small 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.

Top takeaway

Creating a courage mindset is not easy. I know, that’s why I’m here to help.  Watch what happens when you take back control of your direction with clarity and courage!

Balanced Rocks by Sana Turnock

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 discrimination and bullying meant that I learned tolerance, compassion and grit at an early age.

The trauma of my early childhood took their toll. These experiences set me on a path of self-healing. My early adversity empowered me and fostered a deep respect for the body’s ability to heal itself.

Top takeaway

Post traumatic 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.

Top Takeaway

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.
