Where I Came From

Growing up in Rhodesia in the 70s, I saw all around me the differences I wanted my future self to make. Lives & communities that I needed to impact. No – one who knew me when I was growing up believed that I could go from walking 5 hours each day to fetch water & fire wood to & fro school; to having a stellar career, successful entrepreneur and a London Property Millionaire. I always believed that I would be financially independent. My school teachers; particularly, Ian Graham believed in me he was my mentor and the wind beneath my wings – from Tegwani in Zimbabwe to Harrogate, Yorkshire – England. That was my home above.

So at a young age, as I journeyed 6,000 miles from Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) to England, I made a commitment to myself that my life wouldn’t just be average, living from pay cheque to pay cheque, splashing on material goods. I wanted to inspire, to empower, to put the power back into the hands of individuals to build their own future & not have to be constrained by circumstances around them.

Now I have this:

now

Arriving & settling down in England was by no means easy, but when you have a vision bigger than yourself, you find a way to get through the late nights & the loneliness that comes from your family being so far away.

Sure enough, it worked. My commitment, hard work & knowledge soon had MDs raving about me & consulting me about how to better run service-based organisations.

I had a wonderful career, working with non-profit, private businesses & the public sector. Over the course of my 40-year career, I worked at strategic levels & received numerous commendations for service provision, in particular those for vulnerable children & their families.

In the eyes of the world I had really made it: six-figure income & a family back home that was beyond proud of me. But deep down I knew I had set out to achieve more.

I knew I had set out to impact.

Due to chronic burn-out & my stress-induced poor health, meant that I hadn’t even begun to think about the impact I wanted to make in the world.

Therefore I left the corporate world for the first time.

I headed out, head high, knowing that I had a solid reputation to stand on & a few potential clients in the bag. Sure enough, it worked! I began running my own private consultancy. I ran it for 5 years before that fateful phone call from my ex-boss came & I was sucked right back into the lifestyle I had previously escaped from.

I didn’t feel it at first. In fact, I was quite excited- familiar surroundings, a job I knew I was expert at, & the stability of knowing exactly what will come in at the end of the month.

However, the credit crunch hit in 2008 & with that austerity measures became the norm & this took its toll on me. So by the time I left corporate UK, for the second time things were different: I was afraid, ill & worn-out, didn’t feel the confidence & excitement of going to pastures new. In fact, I procrastinated for too long & in the end I was pushed out of the job – discarded like a dirty dish cloth – well past its use. You know what I mean, right?

Like most women, I have always struggled with my weight – going up & down & trying diet after diet, which only made it worse as I would gain back the weight I had lost as soon as the dieting had stopped!

I took a year out to focus on getting well which I achieved. I put myself first, focused on being healthy in a holistic way & lost 5 stones in weight. Yaay! I went from fat in my 50s to looking & feeling 20 years younger at 60!

My focus now is to utilise the range of my transferable skills to accelerate the growth of my coaching business in order to achieve my vision of serving more people on a global scale. I’m also a published author, workshop facilitator & conference speaker & accredited trainer.

I am now a qualified, experienced & Certified Law of Attraction and Health Coach. I impact people by introducing vitality into their lives – hence being dubbed ‘The Vitality Coach’! Having made a smooth transition & a challenging one from corporate rat race into the entrepreneur business world, I know the pitfalls & therefore I can facilitate a smooth transition for those with a burning passion to run their own business.

Are you passionate about your business & the difference you’re here to make? I bet you’re also tired of juggling your full-time job with your business. It’s beginning to feel like you’ll never be able to leave the rat race & take the leap into being a full-time entrepreneur.

Once you DECIDE, results & especially the results you genuinely want, accelerate towards you…yes, that is right…think about that for a moment… not having to chase results & feeling really motivated & free to do the work.

The truth is, only YOU really know what that will mean to YOU…

Well here is what that meant to me…. I went from a size 18 to a size 10 (UK) I no longer need the support of crutches or a wheelchair & can now even jog again…YAAY! I also began to tap into the infinite supplies of Vitality that my new paradigm provides & that is what I really want you to experience for yourselves…you see with Vitality comes new possibilities & a whole new world as we turn the clock back it is so much more than healing & yes…

YOU can have it too….

Are you ready to take the leap?

Or are you sitting on the fence?

Believe me, being pushed out isn’t the nicest feeling to experience!

I would love to hear your experiences of making the transition from 9 to 5 – to abundance, super health & business freedom.

Love, Light & Blessings,

Brendah.
