You’re hard working, talented and driven. You’ve done everything ‘right’ to get to where you are today but there is a niggling feeling that you might be missing out on something else out there.
You just want to know that you’re making the impact you are capable of in your career. You want to feel that you’re in the right place. You want to do work that is meaningful, fulfilling; and aligned with your passions.
If it has to do with getting clarity over your career direction and the confidence to take action, I can help.
Tick all that apply:
The spark, energy or excitement from your day to day has fizzled out somehow and you’re left asking ‘is this IT’?
You’ve reached a crossroads or a turning point and are stuck with how to make the ‘right’ decision to move forwards
You are a bit of a perfectionist, (ok let’s be honest here!) but so often this leaves you struggling with ‘choice paralysis’ (endless lists, anyone?)
You know deep down you are SO capable of achieving more in your work, but you wish you had the confidence to make it happen You’re fed up of feeling stressed and whingey and are ready to do something about it. Now!
I totally get it; been there, experienced (all) of that (several times over) and came pretty close to driving my husband crazy

“I would recommend Holly in a heartbeat”Bec Derrington
Today I hardly recognise my life compared to a few years ago. I felt overwhelmed by work, by the pressure to ‘perform’ and be ‘successful’ (whatever that meant), and I had no life balance whatsoever. I had spent my entire life until that point focussed only on the end result; getting straight As, a First Class Honours at University and a Masters in Business…but I didn’t actually know what for, and I was too ‘busy’ to step back and actually consider what to do about it. Eventually I got seriously burned out and very ill; (big fat clue from the Universe that something wasn’t really working there) which eventually sparked what I now refer to as my ‘Quarter Life Crisis’. On paper I was a success; in reality I was miserable. I considered changing everything; the company I worked for, the profession I was a part of; the city I lived in. I wanted success, but without the stress that always seemed to come with it. I wondered why I couldn’t just be content with things as they were; but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was meant for more.
The scary realisation I came to, was that I could change all of these external factors, but everything would be the same. My mindset was just not working with me; and I had no idea what to do about it. I needed help, and this is when I kick-started my personal development journey where I learned the proven techniques that changed everything for me.
The biggest turning point was realising that I had choices, and that I was always in control of these choices, even when it didn’t always feel that way.
In the space of 18 months I have made somewhat crazy, somewhat courageous choices. I moved from the UK to my dream location of Sydney, Australia. I landed an incredible promotion, created a successful business from scratch, and have since been able to design a life and career that is completely in sync with my passions doing work that I love, and enabling me to help others in turn.
What I really want you to know is that designing a life and career that lights you up doesn’t have to be hard; it doesn’t necessarily mean changing everything, and it is completely possible for you too.
Whether it’s a gentle nudge in the right direction, or support through a bigger transition, It’s time to stop chasing your success and start designing it.
I know that you can’t afford to waste time staying stuck or unclear for one more moment. Your time is precious and there is enough else to do than attempt to figure this all out by yourself.
This is where I come in. I work one-on-one with clients to help you:
Find the career clarity you have been searching for
Build the confidence to design your life and career on your terms
Unlock your most courageous self and create an empowering personal brand to have a bigger impact in the world around you
What you want matters and the time is NOW to unlock your most courageous self and design a life and career that lights you up
