Tell us a little bit about who you are as an entrepreneur?
I learned from a very young age that in order to achieve anything you must first choose a specific goal and commit to it, then visualize achieving that goal and take the biggest steps possible to activate it. I also learned that it is incredibly important to work consistently along the way until you achieve what you desire.
By applying these steps in my professional career, I achieved major accolades, such as “The Best Make-Up Artist in Australia” award and being recognized as one of Europe’s top 10 hairdressers while still only in my early 20s. Along the way, I have developed a passion for helping and encouraging others, which fuels and inspires me in my current international anti-aging/health and wellness business in which I am the number one operator in Australia.
Can you share more about your journey thus far, and how it has helped shape you into the successful and influential woman you are today?
From a young age, two things became obvious to my friends and family: the first was that I was a hard worker and determined to achieve what I wanted. At the age of 12, after my mom told me I could not have a pair of shoes, so I decided to babysit on the weekends until I had earned enough money to afford them myself.The second was that I loved helping people. When I was young I would try to bring homeless people back to my house, much to my mother’s dismay, because I thought how unfair it was that they went hungry.
These two character traits are the primary drivers that make me the leader I am today. I had them as a child but didn’t realize how important they were until much later in life.
I have also overcome many major challenges in my life. The biggest of these was when the man of my dreams passed away only a few days before our wedding. This was the hardest thing I have ever had to overcome, as you can imagine. However, experiencing the lowest of the lows has helped me develop an extraordinarily high level of empathy, which has served me well in my life.
What motivates you to keep going despite your extraordinary accomplishments thus far?
Several things. Number one is that I simply love helping people transform their lives, physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s not about me anymore. It’s about helping other people become the best version of themselves.
Second is that I am a freedom lover. I am someone who wants to be in control of my life with the freedom to live on my own terms. Not to mention I have a massive desire to help others who also want to achieve this level of freedom.
I especially adore helping those people who don’t believe they can achieve their dreams. Opening people’s eyes to the fact that they can do something they feel is impossible, and then seeing them do it, is enormously rewarding for me.
What differentiates you from everyone else in your field?
My mindset. I take 100% responsibility for my entire life so I know my life is of my own making. I also have high morals and am very consistent in today’s distracted world. I have true grit, a positive never-give-up attitude; I dig deep and quickly let go of past hurts.
You cannot be a victim when you take 100% responsibility for your life. If anything bad happens to me I always see it as strengthening me rather than asking myself “why me?”
How do you personally define success?
I define success in the following ways:
- Reaching the point where you have freedom over every area in life – from the time you wake up, to where you live, to when and with whom you want to work
- Living a life that enables you to inspire others by your actions and help them be successful
- Enjoying the true peace of mind that arrives with knowing you have achieved complete freedom in life
- Creating a beautiful physical environment in which to work and live
We are entering an era where everyone is interested in multiple income streams. How does one decide on a business to pursue?
Having multiple income streams is important but I believe strongly you must become an expert in one area only before even thinking about going after other streams of income. Be laser-focused on one area first, and if you don’t love it, don’t do it because you will never be able to make it through the ups and downs required to succeed on a large scale.
Compare it to marriage: do we become an expert in successful marriage by jumping from one marriage to another, or do we truly develop when we stick together for 30, 40 years, going through ups and downs together and learning how to handle all kinds of situations? Most people misunderstand this, believing multiple income streams means building multiple businesses at once.
