The Business That Started It All

The business that started it all.

House of Istria was my bridal accessories brand that sold all over the world, stocked in dreamy boutiques and featured on the cover of magazines.

It enabled me to employ members of my family, sit and draw in my notebooks while my daughter was sleeping, and help women to reflect the free spirited beauty that sits in their soul.

(Just like my coaching does now)!

and was the company that kickstarted my deepest mission and message of freedom.

I walked away from House of Istria at the six figure point because I’d just had my first daughter and didn’t understand how to streamline, work in flow or outsource to support my goals.

All I knew was creativity and work by working every minute that was sent to me.

It seemed ‘too big’ for me to continue to grow alone.

I didn’t realise there were other ways of working.

It took my next business (photography) to show me how I could have a business that gave me everything – total creativity, financial freedom, travel, a business I could shape and design around me and how I choose to live and what I choose to love.

But even that required a total breakdown of the superwoman identity for that to happen.

I’m so thankful for the lessons this business gave to me. I wish I’d known then what I do now.

But sometimes it takes what we experience to become all we are meant for.

I had no hesitation in walking away from that business because I had outgrown her

And she had outgrown me.

We have to remember to prune the things that no longer serve us, like fruit trees, to allow for more blossom to grow.

But sometimes like today, I miss the beauty of it all. Not in a way of wanting it back,

But just in that softness of nostalgia,

Where we remember times and places with love in our hearts,

And nothing but gladness for their presence and existence.

Thank you House of Istria.

Named after my first daughter and the heart shaped region of Croatia.

You gave me so much.

And above all you helped me understand how to find my freedom in business and life.

And that is the most beautiful thing of all.

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.
