The expression ‘work-life balance’ is an odd one. It implies work is not part of life, and yet the average person spends a third of his or her lifetime at work.
Your work has a huge impact on your wellbeing and your overall quality of life.
If you don’t like your job, you’ll spend a lot of time in survival mode, feeling tired and overwhelmed, and struggling to be your best self.
And I think it is fair to say that the upheaval of the past two years has made us question how we live.
We all became acutely aware of the preciousness of life and endured light-speed change.
As a result, I believe that we want to live more consciously, more beautifully, more in tune with our purpose and passions, and with Mother Nature.
When I started to design my life more and more around what I love to do and what’s important to me, I experienced more energy, productivity, health and happiness.
I’ve been making some life changes.
And I have become more contented with a small c.
Read on to learn about my recent big decision
If you are going through quite a lot of change in your personal or work life, you’re certainly not alone.
Worldwide, people are leaving and starting new jobs, working more hours from home, going out on their own, gig working or starting businesses, and putting their families and their health first.
Like many of you, I took this time of massive change as an opportunity to immerse myself in new things and education—things that I had put off for years because the busyness of life got in the way.
In the last two years, I have bought a piece of rural land, planted a nature reserve on the land with the help of family and friends, took up poetry and fiction writing, became certified in yoga, meditation and breathwork, became a certified business mentor and leadership mindset coach, read heaps of books, and joined a local choir.
One of the best days ever: my first forest planting party with family and friends
Now I’ve made another big decision with the view to cultivating more balance in my life and the lives of others.
After twenty years’ of consultancy, I am morphing the consulting side of Contented’s business from large corporate/government clients to smaller organisations and individuals based anywhere in the world.
Announcing a new offering
I have a new coach-consultant offering that brings together all my extensive experience and training over twenty years as a female entrepreneur, business consultant, lawyer, communications specialist, product designer, and mindset coach.
I have developed a pretty cool customisable framework for anyone who wants to design a life they love—a life with more balance, freedom, autonomy, purpose and passion—at work and outside work, because both are important.
Over the years, people frequently ask me how did I have the courage to go out on my own at the age of 27 and generate multiple income streams without the security of employment, and have time for family and life outside of work.
I know what it takes to transition successfully from one career to another, raise a family and be self-employed, and establish and grow a products and services business. I know the working parts of a business, from planning, to marketing and e-commerce, hiring staff and to managing cashflow, and can mentor you in these areas.
I love working and collaborating with likeminded people from different countries and cultures, learning from them, teaching and enabling them to create new things and see new possibilities for themselves, their careers and their business.
Over a period of 3 months, I will guide and empower you to create a plan that moves you to a work life you enjoy—work that aligns more closely with your values, skills and passions.
I will help you explore the answers to some of life’s trickiest questions, such as:
- What’s truly important to me?
- How do I want to live?
- What am I good at and how can I make a difference in the world?
- How can I pursue my career and maintain life balance?
- How can I design a life that weaves my values, my passions and my aspirations together, and leads to a greater sense of purpose and happiness?
I’m not saying I have all life’s answers—you do in fact. But I have the right questions and an excellent framework and methodology to help you uncover what you want from this one shot at this beautiful, messy thing called life.
If you work with me, you’ll:
- come away with a clear vision and inspiring plan for the next chapter of your life
- learn powerful techniques that enable you to increase your productivity and energy, whilst experiencing more life balance.
- receive the support and tools you need to bring your new life vision closer to reality.
Who works with me?
People choose to work with me as a business mentor or coach-consultant when they are at a crossroads.
My clients want a caring and empowering guide to walk alongside them as they navigate towards positive and courageous change over 3 months.
- You may be on the cusp of making a big life change—a new job, a new business, or a new project but procrastination, perfectionism, doubt or something is holding you back.
- You may have made a big leap and started a new career, a business or gone out on your own, and you are finding the reality more full-on than expected.
- Your kids are old enough for you to re-invest in yourself and your career again, and you want help with transitioning back into meaningful work.
- You may have a successful business or career, and you want to take it to the next level and reach your full potential without facing burn-out.
I have had the privilege of working with people in the USA, Canada, the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, Mexico and the Caribbean.
