What to Do When You Feel Discouraged & Not ‘There’ Yet

Posted on: June 25, 2016 Category: Business & Entrepreneurship/ For Coaches

When we are visionary, big dreamers, who are really focused on the BIG vision – sometimes feelings of overwhelm and discouragement can arise when we compare where we are with where we desire to be.

‘Gosh I’m not there yet.
When I will be there?
Why has it not happened yet?’ 

Wherever there may be … A certain # of clients, a certain level of income per month, a certain lifestyle including travel, home, location, health…

These feelings of discouragement related to “I’m not there yet” can easily lead to feeling uninspired, lack of motivation, and ultimately NOT taking ACTION (which actually takes us closer to our goals and dreams)! I call this the downward spiral.

In this week’s video, I share 2 things that can help you move forward if you find yourself getting stuck because of this!


I’m running a FREE SPECIAL Masterclass on “How to Turn Discouragement into Inspired Success” on July 7th, 8am Sydney time where I’ll be sharing content and value on this topic. Sign up for your spot here!

I can’t wait to share more about what I’ve learnt on creating inspired success in your business!

To your success,

11 Things That Raise Your Vibration

Posted on: May 16, 2016 Category: Live Your Vision


Do you know what raises your vibration on a daily basis?

Simply, when we are happy and energetically vibrating on a natural high – we become magnets for day to day miracles, serendipity, manifestations, and so much more!

Confession: I’ve got a running mental list of things that lift my vibration.

And anytime I feel like I’m in a funk, or needing a little boost, I refer to this list.

Knowledge is power, right? 

I know exactly what I require to pull myself out of a funk, which has also helped me develop even more awareness on what sustains my energy levels.

Here’s my list, and this weekend I encourage you to put together a list of 11 (or 22!) things that lift your vibe… and take action on experiencing or scheduling at least ONE right now!

11 Things That Raise Your Vibration

+ Time with my favourite people. I recently finished the book ‘The 5 Love Languages’It really hit home. I’m bilingual, with Quality Time being one of my primary love languages – so of course time spent with people I love raises my energy. You can take this quiz to find out what your love language is, and I also highly recommend reading the book for more depth!

+ Mama Nature. Hanging out with dogs, being in nature, speaking of which … check out this sky from last week’s sunset! #nofilter

+ Travel. I’ve always loved flying (I remember flying itself being such an enjoyable experience growing up)! Being able to explore new places with the curiosity and wonder of a child, expanding my mind, is always the icing on the already delicious cake (gluten free, of course)!

+ Making a difference. As simple as ironing my man’s shirts, to volunteering my time, to supporting someone achieve their goals. When I make a positive difference in someone’s life, I am immediately in the vortex!

+ Good food that’s good for you. With a university degree in Nutrition, this has always been a big part of my philosophy! One of my favourite weekends things to do is wholesome brunches in chic cafes. Follow me here on Instagram to see more!

+ Affirmations. Part of my everyday morning routine for a reason. ;-)

+ Waking up early. This is a new one that I’ve been intending to incorporate, and this month it has been a success! I’ve never thought of myself as a ‘morning person’ but reading THIS book has changed my perspective and I’ve been getting up naturally (no alarms anymore!) before 6:30am. <3

+ Shopping. Shopping has been one of the things that I’ve expanded on this year! I’ve found that allowing myself to have the shopping experience has helped me define my own style, desires, and refine my own brand. Choosing quality over quantity is one that I’ve stepped into many years ago, and I’m always excited to expand my “shopping abilities”! ;-)


+ Celebrating. I’ve written a blog post, ’10 Ways To Celebrate Your Wins & Create More ‘WIN’-Worthy Moments In Business!’, which talks about this. Click here to read it!

+ Self-care. Including baths, massages, making space for reflective periods, making my home a tidy and beautiful space to live and work in etc. Aligning my actions to be self-nurturing and self-loving.

+ Reading & Learning. It always amazes me how much there is out there that we can learn, implement, and better our lives! I know I’ll always be learning, and every time I sign up for a new program/course/pick up a new book – my soul is filled with joy that there’s a new piece I can learn that will improve who I am and what I can share with my clients, and YOU!

Taking it to the next level, I’ve also incorporate MANY of these pieces into my lifestyle.

Almost like a preventative measure – putting care and pouring intention upfront – so that I am always feeling like I have a ‘FULL’ tank on a daily basis. <3

In the comments below, let me know what’s YOUR favourite to lift your vibration!

Have a high-vibin’ week!

10 Ways to Celebrate Your Wins & Create More ‘WIN’-Worthy Moments in Business!

Posted on: May 13, 2016 Category: Business & Entrepreneurship


When you book 1st first (or 100th) client, make a sale, launch a new program, get featured somewhere you’ve been aiming for, achieve a significant milestone in your business…


Celebrating your wins = Anchoring them in!

I often see clients who create significant results and wins in their businesses, and on our next coaching session come to me and say “What’s next?”

This is often met by my “First things first, how did you celebrate?! I want to hear about it!”

Without celebration, it’s easy to burn out and start feeling a loss of motivation, fulfilment, and excitement in your business.

We are so focused on the next thing that we overexert ourselves, and fall into a spiral of fatigue, burnout, and lack of motivation – or need to retreat and recuperate.

Do any of these sound familiar? You’re not alone!

Celebrating (believe it or not) is one of the things that we often miss as high-achievers, go-getters, and visionaries. We’re here and we see the NEXT piece, the NEXT vision, the NEXT goal.

I’ve found celebration so important for us, especially as women entrepreneurs, because we tend to discount its importance (and we tend to be resilient and overcommit to more pressure at work/business) …

However, it is such a beautiful, feminine, and self-loving way to celebrate milestones, which actually helps to create more success, results, and money!  

One of the biggest things I’ve learnt is to be LED by pleasure. So many of us only take action when we are in pain – but what if we all were inspired to action by pleasure, vision, and our desires?

(That’s certainly doing business in a different way! ;)

My Top 10 Ways to Celebrate Your Wins & Create More ‘WIN’-Worthy Moments in Business!

  1. Have a list of experiences and investments you’d LOVE (BIG ones, little ones). When you hit that milestone, choose one (or a couple) and celebrate! Pinterest boards are great for this! (You might find this article on creating a visual representation of your dream life really useful too!)
  1. Journaling. Journal about the experience to this point, any learnings/takeaways, messages you’ve received this time (and re-read as needed in the future)! Such a beautiful and self-loving way to send inspiration to your future self!
  1. Invest in something meaningful, whatever that looks like to you. Mine have included contributing to a cause I believe in, surprise gifts for the people I love for believing in me, paying it forward.
  1. Invest in your future, whether that looks like growing your wealth, contributing to your retirement fund, personal growth, professional development! You will always be your best investment, so invest in your future!
  1. Self-care (treatments and experiences). You’ve got here, which tells me that you’ve worked for it and deserve some extra self-loving and self-caring, right? I’ve found self-care (massages, spa, weekend away) replenishes my tank and gets me back in shape!
  1. Sharing & Inspiring. With your supportive loved ones, communities, coach. Allow everyone to celebrate YOU and get INSPIRED by what is possible for them, too.
  1. Be really, genuinely proud of yourself. Let yourself savour this very moment of your achievement … little a little longer. <3 Such a powerful way to build self-trust, self-confidence, and self-respect!
  1. Toast to your celebrations before they manifest in reality! I love doing this with my love and a few really close friends who truly believe in me… I find that this is such an awesome way to declare to the Universe, and your friends/family what you’re committed to. (Accountability, anyone?!)
  1. Include how you’ll celebrate when you reach your goal in your daily morning visualisations. I know exactly what I’ll be doing when I hit my goals this month, where I’ll be doing it, what I’ll be wearing, what I’ll be saying, and so on! ;-)
  1. Go for quality over quantity. One thing I continue to learn is people who are really successful always choose quality over quantity. When I celebrate, I always choose quality experiences … the things and experiences that I really, truly desire!

Celebrations can be a powerful way to say ‘Thank you! I am so grateful, I acknowledge what I’ve created, and I am ready for more.’ Use celebrations as a launching pad for more – and enjoy yourself while you are at it!

As you continue to celebrate, you’ll find that you upgrade your mindset and life/business as a RESULT of celebrating. Win-win, right?

In the comments below, let me know YOUR favourite ways to celebrate your wins!

Happy Celebrating!

Much love,

A Weekend In The Blue Mountains

Posted on: May 4, 2016 Category: Personal/ Travel & Lifestyle

Last weekend, we headed up to the Blue Mountains for a rejuvenating weekend away. We booked a beautiful architecturally designed mountain home via AirBNB, which was surrounded by the bush land (check out that outdoor deck area)!

We went abseiling and canyoning the first day in Katoomba, where we abseiled down Empress Falls after trekking through the Valley of the Waters. The rest of the weekend was intended for relaxing adventures, exploring, and rejuvenating in Mama Nature.


I loved both Katoomba and Leura, and they both had a really relaxed vibe with boutiques and hippy cafes/juiceries. We stopped at Rubyfruit for a smoothie and an energy ball, and then had lunch at The Garage. The Leura Harvest Festival was on too, so we were in for a real treat! Lots of market stalls along Leura Village, where we also popped in and out of boutique stores and art galleries.

We drove up to Blackheath to Govetts Leap Lookout, where we had magnificent views of the valley – a definite must do when in the mountains. After enjoying the sight and taking it all in in awe, we headed down to Echo Point in Katoomba, Sublime Point Lookout in Leura, and all the way to Wentworth Falls before making our way back to Sydney. The epic views were surely an expansive experience!

I’ve definitely fallen in love with the mountains! It’s incredible how a fun weekend away (somewhere different, somewhere exciting) can open up the floodgates to lots more inspiration, creative ideas, and fresh new energy – watch this space!

Have you been to the Blue Mountains? What were your favourite spots to visit?

Also, any ideas on where should we head to for our next weekend getaway? ;-)

With love,
