My ‘Why’ – Empowering You to Chase Your Dreams

Life’s a bit like a never-ending rollercoaster. Mighty fun, but at times, it can get a little scary especially when you can’t keep up with the twists and turns. Keep the safety belt on (aka thinking cap) but don’t be afraid to throw your arms in the air, let loose and go with the flow. Whether you’re a budding mumpreneur, a professional that’s sick of climbing the corporate ladder, or just ready to be your own boss and ready to dictate your own life, you’re in the right place. 

As a business coach, my ultimate passion and mission is to give you the kick-start you need to achieve your dreams and live a fulfilling life, simple as that. Nothing gives me more joy and energy than helping you hone in on the clarity, focus and purpose you need to allow your business to thrive. 

From initiating your business idea to developing, refining and enhancing your skills and mindset, I’ll support you and keep you accountable to staying on track. Nudge, push or shove, I’ll make sure you’re putting everything you’ve got into supercharging your progress – we all need a good ol’ ass-kicking now and then, and I’ve got your best intentions at heart.

Breaking down the barriers, conquering self-doubt, navigating roadblocks and tackling tricky problems, I’ll empower you to take the bold actions and leaps of faith. The freedom and success you desire, it’s waiting at the door, you’ve just got to let it in. 

I won’t be at the sidelines cheering you on. I’ll be running the race right by your side, huffing and puffing, sweat galore, so we can cross the finishing line together. Bring on the celebratory champas and silly dance! Crazy passionate doesn’t even begin to describe how obsessed I am with wanting to see you succeed and grow your business. 

Why wait? Don’t let procrastination or your self-limiting beliefs get the better of you. You know you deserve so much more. 

The time is now.

Why choose me as your business coach?

Where you’re at now now? I’ve been there. I’ve been the unsure entrepreneur, and trust me, I made a shit ton of avoidable mistakes and learnt the hard way. Ups and downs, tears and laughter, it’s brought me to where I am today, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Long story short, I’ve done the hard yards, so you don’t have to.

I’m giving you the golden ticket, the ‘get out of jail’ card you’ve been waiting for.

I’ll share my business coaching superpowers with you

Several of my clients have commented on my “ninja-like” ability to instinctively and rapidly ‘see’ a way forward. Inspiring and uplifting them, helping them get unstuck and achieve their goals. Often, I believe in the potential of my clients even more than they do. Which by the way, self-doubt’s a bitch, unfriend that drainer.

On paper, I’m a skilled Sales & Marketing professional with over 25 years working in large corporates, SMEs, small business and startup environments. Backed by a lifelong devotion to learning and self-growth, I’ve got the diverse experience and deep insight required to work with women from all walks of life, and all areas of business.

It’s given me the analytical thinking, problem-solving and creative thinking skills I need to tailor my business coaching to your current situation. Wherever you are, whichever stage you’re at, I’ll meet you there. Together with my intuition and tried-and-tested, proven strategies, we’ll make your dream a reality.

But enough of my fluffing my own feathers, it’s your time to shine.

My story – a rocky start to a life of abundance and joy.

I’ve created my dream life AND my dream business – TWICE!

But it wasn’t always easy, I had a rocky start to life. I’ll save you the entire sob story because I like to live in the ‘now’ and I’m incredibly proud of how far I’ve come, but here’s a quick snippet.

I came from a dysfunctional, broken home, so my early years weren’t full of stability, opportunity or encouragement. I yearned for praise and craved support. As a young girl, my dreams were simple enough. I envisaged a stable and happy life, surrounded by people I love and who love me. Though, deep down I knew I was made for more and every single step I took was intentional, to move me closer to my dream life.

Making up for lost time, I followed my passions, and was constantly learning, exploring, making mistakes and growing.

Over 25 years of corporate experience, a lifetime of learning

You should see my resume, it’s a never-ending scroll, I’ve dipped my toes in almost every corporate sector – Receptionist, Doctor’s Assistant, Medical Practice Manager, Marketing Coordinator, Media Accreditation, ERP Project Advisor, CRM Database Manager, CRM Operations Manager, Telemarketing Manager, Marketing and Project Consultant, Managing Director, Chief Operating Officer and Business Owner. 

Accumulated over 25 years, with a good portion of that spent juggling the full-time corporate grind and furthering my studies. Excessive, I know. Worth it? Yes. But it didn’t stop there.

A 3-year detour and adventure of a lifetime in Phuket, Thailand

After the birth of my first daughter, I finally took the plunge and left the concrete jungle…to create and run my own tourism business in Phuket, Thailand. I’d never worked in Tourism, I didn’t speak Thai, I’d never lived as an expat, I’d never owned my own business. I was a total rookie with no experience – zero, zip, zilch, nada. 

What I did have was a burning passion and vision driving me, a sense of adventure and fun, and a bucket load of corporate and professional expertise. I had an incredible time and cherished every minute. I followed my dream. I packed up my husband, my baby, my “safe” life and stable job… and traded my comfort zone for the unknown. It was crazy, thrilling, hard work and the best damn experience of my life. One for the memory books. 

Anyhoo, I digress. Guess what I loved most? Being a business owner. As a business owner and now an online business coach (aka second dream job), I’ve found my true passion and purpose in life, my calling. The privilege to empower and educate women is what I live for. 

So, here I am now, a business coach. It’s hardly considered ‘work’ when you love what you do so profoundly. 

That sense of passion, fun, adventure and endless thrill, I want to help you rekindle that. You don’t have to travel to exotic destinations or go on an ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ adventure like I did (but if that’s what it takes, go for it) – you can do it right here and right now. We’ve just got to find what lights your inner spark and makes you do that happy dance. 

Okay, Nirelle. Thanks for the life story, I wanna hear the fun stuff.

I currently live in Melbourne, Australia, with my beautiful husband and our two gorgeous girls, who are 8 and 4. We’ve lived here for the past 20 years, aside from our brief stint in Thailand. 

I love travelling and exploring, live music, dancing, and dare I say it, I’m a wannabe runner. When I’m not running (and sweating my socks off) along my favourite 10km loop around the Maribyrnong, you’ll find me cooking and indulging in good food – gimme all the chocolate and wine, please. Gotta make up for all those calories burnt!

Fun fact – I played lacrosse my entire life until I had my daughters. Might explain my fierce competitiveness and stubborn tenacity.

That’s me, in a nutshell. 

If you’ve gotten this far, thanks for hearing me out because I can’t wait to hear your story. Our friendship’s just beginning.
