A few years ago, deep in the trenches of a executive job in luxury retail, I found myself wondering – is this really it?
I’d worked so hard for the good income and career. I loved parts of my job. But it was demanding. Stressful. I was was struggling to balance being a mum and hold a career. This overwhelming feeling that something was missing was with me everyday. And that feeling wasn’t going away. I felt guilty. From the outside, it looked like I had a great life. Surely I shouldn’t be feeling like something is missing?
I kept going. Put on the lipstick each morning and covered up my pain. Buried my sadness. Filled my emptiness with more work. Even when my physical and mental health began to suffer seriously. I just kept going. Until it all fell apart.
Hi. I’m Harriet Castle. I help women who are ready to show up fully in their lives and to start living with passion, purpose and direction. No apologies.
I believe all we need is within us already. But sadly, our fears, lack of confidence and unhelpful self beliefs can hold us prisoner. Keeping us in jobs, relationships or a lifestyle that we are no longer in love with.
I know. I’ve been there.
But it doesn’t need to be this way….
When I got support, looked deeper into myself and learned the practical steps to make change in my life, things finally moved forward. Fast. In less than 10 months I’d quit the stressful job, regained my health, started my own business, left a toxic relationship and moved across the world with my kids back to my home, Australia. Now as a single mum.
Heres the thing, I WAS ABLE TO DO ALL THIS BECAUSE my life coach helped me smash through crippling self doubt, fear so I could break out of my self imposed prison. I learned to get in touch with what I truly wanted. To build a real plan of action. To get excited about life once again.
My mission these days is to help other women to start living the life they want and deserve. With passion, purpose and direction. And no apologies.
This has been my story. What will yours be?
