Time Waits for Nobody: Lessons from Reflecting and Planning


In 2015, my life changed forever when my mum passed away. I was heartbroken, and my body shut down. I distracted myself so I wouldn’t feel the pain of losing a parent. One of my biggest lessons learned is that time waits for nobody. My mum had so many plans, but dying at 56 meant she didn’t get to fulfill many of them. People often plan, but they don’t execute the plan. They make excuses, procrastinate, feel overwhelmed, talk themselves out of really going for what they truly want, and then they freeze...

I believe that we should all have the opportunity to live the life we long for. After 18 months of distraction, I had to review, reflect, and replan how I would live my life without my mum, so planning became really important to my lifestyle. Now that I’m juggling motherhood, being a carer, a wife, and a business owner, being strategic about my planning for my life and business needs is really key. Especially since I know that my time in all of my roles is limited.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • My methods for holistic planning
  • Why we need to assess where we are in life to move forward
  • My version of the wheel of life assessment
  • Why I’m on a mission to ensure other women understand they are enough and can achieve their desires
  • The reason behind my urgency to get 45 goals completed in my business and my personal life this year

And so much more!
