“STOP IT! It’s all in your head” – Smash Your Ceiling to Smash That Ceiling


#TheWomanAlchemist is a special kind of breed. A woman takes charge and responsibility for her own life and advantage of the opportunities that life presents her. And even better, she turns disadvantages and bad experiences into opportunities for successful businesses. No excuses.

“You have to be open to using your gift/s, to embrace the opportunities and change your life” – Steve Harvey – Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success.

So it is all about taking ownership of your own life, not accepting no for an answer. And not letting societal, religious, and family paradigms determine who you can be. But, most of all, it is all about mindset.

Role models can shape you, motivate you, push you. And show you what is possible.
I’m passionate about inspiring/empowering/helping women make the most of their circumstances with their available tools. Plus grabbing the opportunities that life presents. Without using excuses of why they can’t. And providing real-life role models is critical.

I was lucky to meet and interview many women alchemist out there whilst writing my book STOP IT! It’s all in your head”. They were:

  • Natasha Makhijani,
  • Rachel Dipper,
  • Jackie Smithen,
  • Emmajane Taylor-Moran,
  • Karen Green,
  • Liz Ward,
  • Ela Slutsky & Galit Bauer,
  • Sally Bunkham,
  • Anne-Sophie Whitehead,
  • Irina Bragin,
  • Sophie Thorne,
  • Alexandra Wall,
  • Katie Owen,
  • Elena Kale,
  • Cheryl Luzet,
  • Claire Curzon,
  • Julie Bishop,
  • Yasmin Vorajee,
  • Kirsten Rees,
  • Rachel Carrell,
  • Ute Amann-Seidel,
  • Anna Cousins,
  • Jacqui Burge.

These are women who overcome life difficulties, tragedies and survive them. And then become successful because of and despite them. This is a special kind of breed indeed.

You know what? So you can do it too if you really really want to.
Do you?
