It seemed to be the ideal solution as Jack needed open heart surgery in Crumlin Hospital when he was only 7 months old. Jack had what used to be called 'blue baby', I thought being self-employed would allow me to choose my working hours and care for my son.
In reality, when my son was small, it meant very little sleep. Looking after my son during the day and my customers in the evenings and weekends, I literally used to meet my husband in the car park when he finished work to hand over our son before going into client appointments until 10pm.
My son might have been asleep when I got home but would be up again at 12 midnight. Jack had his first full night's sleep when he was 3 and a half years old. During these years I also experienced three miscarriages.
I ran the Dublin City Marathon in 2014. My first of many.
Luckily the Oxy-Powder Colon Cleanse capsules were amazing and my customers loved them. This encouraged me to create a website and sell products online. This was brilliant as it also gave me more flexibility within our home life.
For 11 of those years, I also managed a service contract with the HSE's Community Alcohol & Drug Service. Supporting recovering addicts through complimentary therapies, helping them reduce anxiety and improve their sleep.
I ended that contract when my lovely mum passed away September 2021. Poor lady had multiple strokes in the years leading up to her death. Each one taking away a little more of her mobility, speech and mental abilities.
The last few years have been a very difficult experience on many levels. But all of it brings us to the here and now. What I've come to realise is that life is far from perfect, that we need to let go of any attachment.
I've learned how important it is to cultivate a way of being that allows continuous flow with intention but without expectation.
But I'm also very grateful for the experiences, for what I've learned and for all The Wellbeing Clinic customers who came along on the journey with me.
All this learning, along with ongoing investment in further training and private coaching, has helped me carve out the niche I was probably born for. Becoming an expert in understanding manifestation.
Understanding the energy behind intention, the choices we make, the customers we attract and ultimately the life we lead.
Through all of this I've become a Manifestation Coach to business owners. Helping them understand and implement their own unique manifestation blueprint. So that they can create unlimited abundance and flow within their business and lifestyle.
As a business owner myself I understand the challenges, the pitfalls, mistakes, misunderstandings...but also the joy of amazing customers, achieving goals, hitting targets, the successes along the way ... being able to choose to go for a run instead of sitting at my desk :)
I understand the struggle it is to juggle family life with pure belief and determination that your business will not only survive but thrive.
Being self-employed has its benefits but also some very real drawbacks.
