From Drug-infested Council Estate To Living In A Chateau

I had a little cry today

I’d been playing outside with my kids
Hanging a swing in the cedar tree,
Picking raspberries from the bushes

We came inside and ate fresh cheese and bread and local honey, a gift from sweet friends

And seeing the fridge for some reason made me all of a sudden remember

What it was like to go to a fridge that was empty.

Remembering childhood in a street where sure, everyone looked out for one another

But at the same time dear god did you learn to be street-smart

And I was thinking about really

How on earth I even made it out in one piece really, let alone live the life I do now

And I looked around at this chateau

I live in a freaking CASTLE 🏰

And I thought about not only how differently it could have all turned out

But also how damn proud I am of myself

Not just for me, but for my daughters

They will not know true hardship
They will not know houses that catch fire due to chip pans because that’s all people really could afford to eat 
They will not know drug raids
Or cars being set fire to outside your house 
Or as a child having to call the police because you thought that any minute the thing you loved most was about to be ripped away from you –
They will not know domestic violence or alcoholism (at least not while they’re kids but their path is theirs)

And I’m sat in the kitchen with the breeze sweeping over and through our land, bringing me back to the present moment

Tears filling my eyes and thinking both how just GLAD I am

But also, you know? You can do anything. 

I would never change my past or where I’m from because without them I would never have learned not just to stay alive!! but also –

 resilience, determination, and the absolute grit that can only ever be learned when you have no choice to wade through absolute sh*t day after day

And you still keep going because you learned from absolute super – mamas that one day you WILL create a different life

And I’m sharing this story – and even all my stories –

Because sometimes you need someone to show you that

Anything is possible for you

No matter where it is you’re at, you can create the change you wish to see

That wherever it is you’re at, you get the chance at any point to change it and choose something new

I used to DREAM of living in a castle as a kid

Not because I wanted to be a Disney princess

But because I knew I would be safe there

So of course! That’s where I ended up living

Because I knew one day I would. ✨

And my daughters are safe here, held within these beautiful walls

But even this I know, will be time to let go of soon

Because the fear that got you to where you are now?

Isn’t what will get you to where you want to be or are going to next.

For that

You need to choose new beliefs, a new story.

I don’t know what comes next (Or maybe I do…)

That story is yet to write.

But in the meantime I hope this story inspires anyone who reads it to know

That you can rewrite yours, any time you choose.

I don’t believe it’s an accident you ended up here on my site. 

You believe in the same things that I do – unlimited income, following a purpose, making a difference in the world, and being free to travel or live life however you please. 

You’re probably some sort of free spirit, you want to break free of systems and programs that leave you feeling restricted and with limited results,

and you want to know how to show up with nothing less than blissful confidence every single day, in every situation.

But for some reason, instead

*you find yourself frequently procrastinating,
*your results are slowly growing but nothing really extraordinary,
*and you wish you had more direction and courage in really following through on the things you want to make happen.

That’s where I step in. I’m an amazon bestselling author, successful blogger, coach, and business owner (yep, multipassionate enterpreneur over here) and I’m also a big introvert. I’m also a mama of 2 who homeschools her kids all over the world on our global family adventures, horse lover and an ex-feminist turned deep feminine. I ditched my teaching job and since then we’ve travelled all over the world, spoken on stages from the US to the UK to NZ, and coached thousands of women to help them meet their income and lifestyle goals.

If any of that vibes with you, and you’re truly ready to create a massive transformation in your life, you’re going to want to jump on a call with me. Don’t worry – I don’t do pushy sales pitches. (In fact, they make me a bit sick). I do listen while you tell me about your business or business idea, give you as much support as I can on the call, and then you’re free to do what you want with that info – which just could change your entire life.
