hi, im ruth.png

I was the grammar school rebel who was actually a secret swot and got top grades. I took my time travelling before I hit university and when I was there enjoyed the social side as much as the studying.

I had always been involved in businesses - organising events, making things and even went to study Business at university.

But, when it came to having my own business I was stumped. I felt I needed to come up with a brilliant, unique idea to be a success and I didn't have any of those. 

I started off working in the city before moving into education and was on the fast track to become a Headteacher. 

But then I became a mum. 

I realised that becoming a Headteacher would mean I would have little time to be with my family. And that was a sacrifice I didn’t want to make.

I was leaving before my daughter woke up and would often have only a snatched hour with her before bed. I was often distracted by work and I felt like I was failing as a mum and in my job. I felt like I was merely getting through the days and weeks.

When I got pregnant for the second time I knew that something had to change. 

I used to spend half the night tossing and turning and trying to do sums, thinking I could be a stay at home mum one minute or a Headteacher the other. 

And then I got a coach and working with her made me admit to myself that she was doing exactly what I wanted to do. That seed that was planted all those years ago, those courses I had done were because this was my passion. I was just too scared to admit it and didn't really know how I could go from coaching to being a coach.

But I did, I set up my business whilst pregnant, working full time and with my toddler in tow. It was bloody hard - I was speaking to clients during weekends and evenings and initially did everything myself.

I learnt a lot, I learnt what to outsource and how to give myself time every day, I learnt to have really clear boundaries and I learnt that this was my passion and that I was energised by my clients success. 

I love helping other mums create their dream businesses and lives and have been privileged to be part of their success.

I always want to know a bit more about the person before I commit to something like coaching so here is a bit about me.

I’m a globe-trotter and love travel, I have travelled extensively and  lived in Australia, New York and on a Malaysian island for 6 months. This year we are planning a family trip to California so I can attend Brendon Burchard's High Performance Academy and spend some time exploring the state. I have also planned trips to Barcelona, Ibiza, Rome and Greece. 

I’m a qualified dive master and love nothing more than being in the underwater world, it is so peaceful and magical and I find it really relaxing. 

I have run two marathons. I love yoga, exercise, and meditation - this is how I maintain my sanity as a mother of two young children and owner of a small business. It is through exercise and yoga that I am able to truly focus on myself and I find them both energising. 

I enjoy fashion and am pretty much obsessed with Whistles, I have a bit of a "thing" for their dresses and I probably do have too many! I love Sophia Webster shoes so much my second daughter is called Sophia!

I love unwinding with a glass or two of prosecco with my girlfriends and putting the world to rights. 

At 35 my life completely changed when I met my partner. We had our first daughter a year later, and our second daughter within another two years. We are getting married at the end of May and this will mark a truly remarkable 4 years.

Now I’m ready for entirely new adventures working with you to get you to where you want to be.
