How did Cath overcome failure to achieve success?

HOW DID CATH OVERCOME FAILURE TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS?

How did Cath overcome failure to achieve success?

In this lockdown episode Danielle chats to She Will Shine Member, Cath Connell. Cath is a Marketing Consultant, Coach, and the Creator of Wholehearted Marketing, where she focuses on small business marketing with a human touch.

Beginning her career as a Graphic Designer, Cath further pursued a career in Marketing, returning to study while holding down a full-time job and having a young child. Although highly motivated and determined to succeed, she soon realised that she was really struggling; missing out on so much with her son, not seeing her friends and her health going downhill.

With dreams of building a big business empire Cath shares how a failed business opened her eyes to what success truly meant for her. While financially the business failure hit her hard, it also opened her eyes to a different type of life. One where her marriage, son, health and friendships were her greatest successes.

Despite the grief she experienced from losing her business, she decided to start back on that business journey again. But this time with a different perspective.

Cath shares how the the fear of failure still lingers, but that she now considers her life and current business a real success. And how it has allowed her to experience and enjoy other aspects of life.

How did Rebecca start her Family Law Firm?

HOW DID REBECCA START HER FAMILY LAW FIRM?

How did Rebecca start her Family Law Firm?

In this episode Danielle talks to She Will Shine Member, Rebecca McGowan. Rebecca is the Director and Principal Lawyer of McGowan Family Law, an Accredited Family Law Specialist, Independent Children’s Lawyer and Mindset & Empowerment Coach at The Separation Coach.

Coming from a single parent family from early childhood, Rebecca always understood what children needed during this difficult time in their lives. It was this very personal insight that propelled her to pursue a career in Family Law and ultimately open her own practise.

Rebecca shares her journey and how she had no idea what she was in for, working in firms which were not aligned with her own values, as well as working in a male dominated industry and experiencing unkind and sexist behaviour. It was this that motivated her to prove her critics wrong and be the best she could possibly be.

Experiencing the effects of a high pressure and stressful job on her mental health, Rebecca has also realised the importance of setting boundaries and is focusing on how she can take her own wellbeing and her family’s wellbeing to another level. And she is now embracing being able to bring that passion and empowerment to her clients.

Proudly presented by Danielle Price, Founder of She Will Shine.
