Question 5: List three words that describe you, how do people introduce you?

Friendly - I am an inherent people person. I love to get to know new people and create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable. The other day I was was walking to the park with my 2 year old son and had stopped a few times to say hello to people. On the third stop, my son said "mummy who is that', I said "my friend" and he responded "every people is your friend mummy...you have got lots of friends"

Diligent - Once I set a goal, I work very hard to achieve it. I have been building my coaching business around my part-time job as a lawyer, being mummy to two young children and wife to my husband. It is really tough at times but I am determined to use my gifts to help people on a personal level.

Cheerleader - I love seeing others achieve their potential. I am always ecstatic when my coaching clients achieve their goals. When a recent client, a stay at home mum of 4 who was so nervous about finding a suitable part-time role contacted me to say she had landed the ideal job for her, I was buzzing for days. It was such an honour to be part of her journey to fulfilling her potential.

Bringing my personality to work and really connecting with colleagues and clients.

Connecting with like-minded people and making progress in my business.
