Q. If you could give your past self some advice, what would you tell yourself?
I would tell myself to believe in myself, find my purpose, and take uncomfortable action to share my message.
Q. When you first started your career, how did you know you were ready and what made you start?
I spent five years in perimenopause and five years in menopause; I suffered from hot flashes, weight gain, brain fog, and didn’t love myself. I wasn’t the best version of myself during my menopausal journey. I saw doctors, naturopaths and specialists. I took every medication and supplement that they gave me and instead of having relief, I ended up having side effects and that’s when I said, enough is enough. I researched, read books, took courses and interviewed women who were going through it or had gone through it and found natural, effective ways to deal with my menopausal symptoms.
Q. What or who has been your greatest influence in business?
Dean Graziosi is an inspirational and motivational speaker who put me in the hot seat and helped me to get clarity on my purpose and mission during Dean’s Inner Circle Group.
Q. What do you have going on that you would like to share?
I designed a course, Loving Menopausitivity, which is about being strong, healthy, sexy and thriving during menopause and dealing with menopausal symptoms in a natural way. I would like to impact as many lives as possible through my course and help women love themselves and be the best version of themselves.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
I love taking women from struggling and surviving, to healthy and thriving during their menopausal journey. I don’t want women to suffer as long as I did.
Q. What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
Knowing that I am on my way to creating a Loving Menopausitivity Movement where women will be seen and heard and shifting the way women are perceived during their perimenopausal and menopausal journey both at home and at work. I want to serve women and equip them with strategies that they can apply every day and throughout their busy lives. Menopause was a nightmare for me and it doesn’t have to be.
