the expectation blame-game
Birthdays have a similar effect on me as New Years Eve. For me, they are these huge "time" reminders telling me that I'm another year older. My mind automatically goes into stocktake mode and wants to review and assess where I've been, where I am now and where I want to go. I am just coming off the back of my 34th Birthday (I actually forgot how old I was turning this year!), and it's... Read More »
your circle of influence
You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully. - Jim Rohn Ponder THAT for a second. You become like them. Who are the biggest presences in your life today? Will you become a better version of yourself, or worse? Is their impact on your life a positive one? Similarly, what is your impact on their life? Your life is fleeting and precious. You have... Read More »
goals + self sabotage
As we approach the end of the year, our minds naturally start to wander ahead - to the exciting fresh blank page that a new year brings. Goal setting ignites the flame that inspires and drives you into the new year. It encompasses all you want to have and experience. BUT, ask yourself this - Are you setting your goals to inspire you to be your best self? OR Are you setting your... Read More »
the power of one
I've shared with you over the past few weeks how my experience in Africa has really shaken me to the core. As I said in last week's blog - growth is a bitch! It's been a crazy ride, and I've felt the full spectrum of human emotion in only a short few weeks. I had the urge to BE more. To give more. To contribute more. I was so inspired by Maria's story - the women who single-handedly... Read More »
how much do you love yourself?
Do you love yourself? Like whole-heartedly, unconditionally LOVE yourself? Where would you place yourself on a scale of 1 - 10? (1 = self loathing, and 10 = complete self love and acceptance.) Most women I speak to would only place themselves between 1 - 5. And that my friends, is no where near good enough. Now when I say love yourself, it’s not in a romantic, lovey-dovey kissing the...

your tribe
I had the pleasure of presenting to an inspiring bunch of women on the weekend. They had put aside a whole day out of their busy lives to give back to themselves, and attend the Winter's Day Retreat. The room was packed full of yoga leggings, journals, raw food and lots of laughing - this was my kinda place. Something really magic happens when you bring a bunch of likeminded women together -...

is happiness selfish?
I have to be real with you, the word happiness hasn't always sat well with me. (You might recall my stance from previous post such as: The Pursuit Of Happiness) But my own personal definition of happiness* is slowly changing. It's moving away from the superficial and frivolous, and merging towards deep fulfilment, peace and joy. (* Notice the power of language, and the meaning that we... Read More »
do you dare to dream?
What's the biggest you've ever allowed yourself to dream? How often do you allow yourself to live in possibility? (beyond what is probable for your life) Today I'm launching my first ever e-Course: Ignite Your SPARK, and to be honest a huge part of me is pinching myself. Because I used to look at other people doing work that I admired, and think 'Oh man, I could never do what they do' or... Read More »
choose love
I'm feeling heavy today. Waking up this morning to the news across the globe of execution, natural devastation and violent riots. It's heavy stuff. It has the power to make me feel powerless, isolated, insignificant and has me asking myself "What the hell is going on in the world?!". . This is why I don't own a TV, and rarely watch the news. It makes me feel anxious, saddened and... Read More »
act as if
I had an interesting conversation with a friend last night. He wanted to change jobs, change careers infact, but felt he was under qualified for some of the positions that were available. It brought to mind for me the misleading notion of 'readiness' - when are we ever really ready? If we wait for that perfect moment, that elusive some-day concept when all our ducks are lined up in a row,... Read More »

“Julia led a Workshop with my Year 10 students – each with such different aspirations, current achievements and many with little idea of what they want to do in life. Careers and subject choices for VCE are our focus, so it was perfect timing to have Julia come in and show them that truly anything is possible. The students stepped into possibility, created a clear Vision for their best life, and learnt how to set goals to make it happen. As their teacher it was a joy to see them listening, creating and genuinely being excited about where they can go.”

“I have taught coaching as an academic University teacher – Julia goes beyond anything in my textbook. It is the best money I ever spent. Her coaching is amazing, she is a wonderful active listener. There have been times when I have challenged Julia on how to deal with unexpected non-dreamed of situations that come up. This is where she excels. She knows how to deal with my future dreams and my current reality. I cannot recommend Julia enough. I’ll also say – I did the work. I never expected Julia to be a magic wand. I expected her to be a coach. She has been coach extraordinaire.”
