Heather started the Real Executive Coaching Company because she experienced business coaching for 4 years and it absolutely changed her whole way of being.
I worked hard to build a secure, safe and comfortable environment around me, never trusting anyone to help or allowing them access to my vulnerable side.
I became top revenue earner in a male dominated environment five times in a row, won winners trips to amazing all expenses paid destinations and doubled profit margins by creating a new company which turned over £1.5 million in its first year. I brokered large million pound deals with the top six management consultancy companies, which meant I joined the exclusive internal ‘millionaires club’ and off the back of that I built a small property portfolio on the side. I wanted to be the best at everything! A self-sufficient, driven and powerful individual, who did not need to rely on anyone financially.
It was a safe place but a very lonely one. I could never understand why I would do so many things for other people and yet, they were never there for me when I needed them to be. Can you relate to the irony in that?
After experiencing life-changing Business Coaching for 4 years, I finally realised that I needed to stop serving everyone else’s needs, stop pleasing people who did not deserve my energy and overall, I had to stop feeding off everyone else’s happiness. Faced with finding my own version of happy, I was going after my own mission and creating the true-life I wanted to live.
All of a sudden the landscape of my world flipped. I now face my fears and live my dreams.
The minute I stopped giving so much of myself to others, the negative people went away. Once I started doing the things I wanted to do, I actually started to excel. Reaching Director level in the business I commandeered and finally becoming retired from having to work at age 39. I have channelled my resilience, strength and power into what now really matters to me the most – giving other people a space where they belong.
