Hi, I’m Julie,
I help women transform their careers and I have had lots of personal experience transforming my own career. I have worked in technical roles, leadership positions, client relationship management and sales roles and am now in coaching and personal development.
I have spent over 25 years growing my career and transforming myself when I was ready for change. Sometimes that change was driven by a desire to try something new, sometimes feeling in a rut and needing to stretch myself, and occasionally becoming dissatisfied, unfulfilled and ready to move on.
Change is not always easy and the best piece of advice I can give you, based on my experience, is to embrace the fear, get yourself lots of support and go for it. I have had so many amazing experiences because I choose not to stand still. You also can have a meaningful and enjoyable career if you are willing to open yourself up to change and explore new opportunities.
I believe that everyone should find happiness in their career and that we all have it in us to create the career of our dreams. And this is what I want to help you to do if you are ready to Transform Your Career into a successful career you love.
It is easy to coast along doing a job that you are good at, and I personally have coasted on more than one occasion. On those occasions I was enjoying the work that I was doing but there came a point when I became comfortable and the job was no longer contributing to my career growth or happiness. It became easy and mundane and I felt a loss of motivation. Whenever I recognised that I was “coasting” I would take the time to evaluate where I was and where I want to be and use that to build a plan. It can be scary walking away from a job that you are really good at to try something new but it is worth it.
If you are in a position where you feel you are coasting then let me work with you to help you recognise why, remove any limiting beliefs are keeping you there and help you to create a plan to reinvigorate and motivate you onto new and exciting opportunities.
I have been there as well and believe me it very rarely happens. You need to be proactively promoting yourself and establishing a support network if you want to get ahead.
I learned this very early in my career when I spent nearly 2 years working hard and waiting for someone to notice and promote me. After a while I realised it wasn’t going to happen and that I needed to take control and create the opportunities.
I see so many women doing this as we are often more comfortable doing the “tasks” really well and less comfortable with self-promotion. It is a skill that is essential to career growth and you will be glad to hear, one that can be learned. If you find it difficult to talk about your skills and capabilities, and are uncomfortable promoting your achievements then let me help you find your courage and your voice.
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” – Seneca
Luck can play a role in your career, but normally it is because you have put yourself in the position to receive it, and it is how you take advantage of the opportunity that will determine if you succeed.
There have been numerous occasions when I have considered myself lucky to have been in the "right place at the right time" or lucky to have known a certain individual who helped me in a career move. But the truth is these opportunities came to me because I helped to create them.
Learn to embrace your luck and make the most of it when it presents itself.
So many of us have that sense of not being good enough, not seeing what other people see in you, think it’s only a matter of time before you are “found out”.
“Every time I was called on in class, I was sure that I was about to embarrass myself. Every time I took a test, I was sure that it had gone badly. And every time I didn’t embarrass myself — or even excelled — I believed that I had fooled everyone yet again. One day soon, the jig would be up … “—Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer at Facebook
Research tells us that women often undervalue themselves and as a result we are uncomfortable asking for pay rises and we won’t go for that new job unless we’re sure we have all the necessary skills – where men will often go for it with the confidence that they will quickly skill-up on the job and will get by until then.
Women are often so worried about how others perceive us that we overlook our successes and build up a flawed picture of our careers.
I am no stranger to Imposter Syndrome but have learned a lot over the years on how to overcome that fear and just go for it anyway. I have learned how to recognise and take pride in my achievements and I would like to help you do the same.
I share these stories because I have had the same experiences and challenges as you through my career and have learned a lot from these. I want to use those experiences to help you in your career journey, help you overcome some of the challenges and obstacles and enable you to transform your career.
