Up until 2020 (aged 30), my entire life revolved around dance. It's who I was and what I was meant to do. I was born to a dance teacher, you see. I loved to dance from the minute I could walk and naturally, everyone decided that I was going to be a dancer, so I went with it.
I trained professionally, got my teaching qualifications, and found my passion by teaching for my Mum at her studio. I believe teaching these children got me out of a terrible few years with Anxiety and Depression. They gave me purpose and reason to smile and live.
I had my own child aged 24, and I soon realised that the teaching life isn't going to last. In 2019 I gave birth to my son. By this stage I had lost my fire and passion, my choreography wasn't as impressive as it once was, I started suffering from Anxiety again, and I knew that something had to change; and it did, in a way that nobody would have ever imagined...
Well, as strange as this time was for all of us, it was like a new lease of life for me. It was the answer to the wishes I never knew I had made!
I wanted to learn!! I wanted to take control of my life and my future! 🤩
I put time and money into tonnes of online courses and learning during lockdowns. I had already done lots of admin and social media for my Mums school, I was good at it and I enjoyed it.
I got everything together and made a vague plan, thinking it would take a while to take off.
Well... I can tell you now that my 'vague plan' did not go to plan!
Once the dance world got wind of what I was doing, it just took off!
I decided, rather than set limits on how many clients I could manage on my own, I would hire my team to distribute the workload.
So, with a thorough selection process, (out of over 50 applicants), I built a team that I could not be more proud of. We are helping so many business owners get freedom in their businesses AND IN THEIR LIVES - which is SO important to me.
One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is helping to grow our client’s business and improve their lives, simply by taking on admin tasks, improving their systems, giving them someone to talk to, producing great marketing strategies, and so much more, which allows our clients to spend more time doing what they love and are good at.
