After 20+ years of investing in corporate culture and organisational success, I realised that sharing my experiences, the great and the undeniable challenges, could be beneficial to those seeking career clarity and advancement. Thinking back on what it has been like to clear obstacles for others and go above and beyond for others, I realised my learnings could be enormous value to those who mirror my journey. What I have learned is there are extraordinary ways to contribute to the greater good of individuals by forging a career coaching path. I have also learned that fear of the unknown can be an obstacle or it can be the very thing that propels you “suddenly” into an unknown space reflecting where you should have been long before you arrived.
