Here she tells us how:

"While working as Scottish Director of a voluntary organisation, I realised I was setting strategic objectives for the organisation but had no clear goals for my own life.  I began to explore who I really was and what I wanted from life.  Even after clarifying some long and short term goals, I still found myself thinking one day, 'Whose life am I living anyway? It certainly isn't mine - I am unhappy in my work, I hate my house, my health is suffering and my relationship with my partner could be a whole lot better.'  I needed to take responsibility for my life, take care of myself and take action, quick!  Four years later I had left that job, sold my house in Edinburgh, married my partner and moved to live by the sea in Fife. I am now happily running my own business inspiring others to follow their heart and become what they are capable of becoming, which I LOVE."
