I’m right smack, bang in the middle of the most wonderful calling. Something I didn’t know I was missing, I needed or that was for me and I found it in my forties. Before then I had a ‘meh’ career and had settled into it without questioning that there was more in me to give and achieve.
Most of my clients come to me because they have ‘meh’ careers, searching for something to fill the fulfilment hole and wanting to feel passionate and joyful in their work.
