Hello, I’m Jacqui
I help women create their own path to success while remaining true to themselves.
Women often tread a fine line trying to balance competing expectations about what success is. Sometimes, trying to do so can take us off course.
While you’re busy doing the juggle, it’s easy to drop the ball labelled ‘me’. Who’s got spare time and energy for themselves?
Yes, we all have obligations, practical realities, that restrict our choices.
But we also have the freedom to choose what we do with the space that’s left. I help women find that space and use it.
My career – like my life – has taken a long, winding road, but now I’ve found my path I can see the importance of all the twists, turns, and missteps. But I do wish I had some more help along the way. Those sidesteps made me who I am today, I’m not dismissing the power of a mistake. However, with the benefit of some guidance, the younger Jacqui may not have suffered so many sprained ankles, blistered heels, or stones in her shoes while treading her path. As a coach, I’ve learned how to guide others to find their answers by listening to their inner voice.
Importantly, I’ve also learned that taking one step forward is more empowering than setting audacious, and often unrealistic, goals.
