Showing up as your vulnerable self

It was a pleasure to join @wombizclub at The orange tree in Derby for their monthly meetup on Tuesday 29th October in the evening.

I delivered the power hour’s presentation: 

“The 7 steps to use your story to elevate your business”

Do you have a story?
How does your story help your business?
Tips to get your book written
Do you publish or self publish?

The session was followed by relaxed networking with a focus on human connection.

Feedback from the evening:

“Loved meeting you and as expected totally inspired by your authenticity – thank you for sharing your story with the world.”


“Thank you for a beautifully heart-led talk at Derby tribe night. I think that I can speak on behalf of everyone that was there that we all took something from it and we thank you for being so authentic and vulnerable with us!”



You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.
