Working one job while trying to get your own business off the ground can have it’s challenges, although having a dream and being driven by a strong vision keeps you going. This was me 2 years ago facilitating a session at a Leadership conference, funnily enough the subject being 'finding your purpose'. In the break I was chatting to a colleague about Mamas Journeys. At this stage I was wearing many hats, Leadership Trainer one day, Personal Trainer and Business owner the next, adding in the role of being a Mum to a 1 year old, I often questioned how I could continue like this. Here I was sharing my current situation, and this is when Body Beyond Baby was recommended to me so off I went and did some research.
After learning some more it wasn’t long before I had enrolled in the ‘Safe Return to Exercise’ course ran by Body Beyond Baby founder Jen Dugard. I’m a believer everything happens for a reason and as soon as I met Jen, instantly felt connected and supported. Soon after I was introduced to the concept of becoming a Body Body Baby affiliate, where we all run our own branded Mum focussed fitness businesses yet share the same mission to take care of Mums from the inside out.
At this stage Mamas Journeys was only a baby and had a lot of growing up to do! I was training Mums around my other work and I knew for it to develop I would need to be 100% committed. So in late 2018 I left my career in the travel industry to pursue my business and follow my passion.
