You had a successful professional career before kids and had climbed the corporate ladder but now you want something different, you want to work in a more flexible way which works around your family.
You have big dreams, but you are lacking the clarity and confidence to achieve them.
I work with mums to help them become crystal clear about what they want and will support and challenge you to achieve your dreams. I will be your personal cheerleader empowering you to start living the life that you want to live.
You don't have to make the choice between a successful career and your family, you can have both in a way that suits you.
"I can say hand on heart that working with Ruth has helped turned my hopes into reality.
I have gone from feeling overwhelmed and held back by fear of failure to successfully starting my business, feeling confident and most importantly finding paying clients!
Julie Thompson, Julies Graphics
"There are no bones about it, Ruth is actually brilliant... At every turn, Ruth was not only there, guiding me back to the important points, creating plans, setting goals and giving me structure when I was creatively all over the place, but also offered support - emotionally and pragmatically.
Importantly, she has that skill that is very special; she’s able to draw out ideas where you thought that you were at the end of the road. You know that blank space we all enter as entrepreneurs, as business owners, when the fatigue sets in and the ideas start to run dry? That is the point that Ruth is at her best. Because she encourages you to look in 4d, in the box, outside of the box, (no-where near the box, maybe), to find the answer. She helps nurture your instinct, and your love for your business - and for me, gave me a whole new perspective on The Motherload, a renewed vigour for our community at exactly the point I needed it." Kate Dyson, CEO, The Motherload
I have helped a group of diverse but ambitious mums, each with heir own challenges and each with big dreams achieve their version of success - setting up profitable businesses that work around their families.
I am a qualified business coach with over 12 years experience in education including 6 years at a Senior leadership level where I coached, mentored and developed staff (and students). I combine this experience with a MA in Psychology and numerous coaching qualifications which have given me a holistic approach to coaching.
As a a mum of two young daughters who set up my own business whilst pregnant, working full time and with a toddler in tow - I understand overwhelm and what it takes to develop a business.
In the last year I have replaced my previous salary and built a successful coaching business and have recently started a second business focused on developing confidence in teenagers.
I now know I am doing exactly what I am meant to be doing and have built a strong community on and off line which has enabled me to leave my secure career (and salary) on maternity leave and work more flexibly around my family. Every day I help mums do exactly the same.
You have always been independent and had a good salary and security from your career and the thought of leaving that does worry you, but you don't have the passion for your career that you used to and you have different priorities now. You don't feel that you have any "downtime" and me time is often right at the bottom of your to-do-list.
You often dream about ditching the job and staying at home but you know that you would go stir crazy if you weren't working. You want your independence and to provide for your family and to be a role model for your children but you are unclear over the execution.
You haven't ever set up a business before so the thought of it is overwhelming, you need support to help you know where to start and to make sense of your thoughts and ideas so that you are clear what you want to achieve.
You do fear failure and worry that working for yourself could create more work rather than less. You want to feel more confident that you can make it work and you can live the life that you want to live.
I understand these struggles because I felt exactly the same and I have worked with over 50 mums to help them achieve their dreams and create the lives that they want to live.
I have built a successful career that is balanced around my family and my clients have done exactly the same. Since starting my coaching business I have grown my client base and am now developing new business ventures.
