The word Resilience best describes my story

Childhood

My family’s dynamic was already in chaos before I was even born. My parents were introduced and arranged to be married within days of meeting each other because other people thought it was the convenient thing to do. They settled in England, in the UK.  5 kids and 7 years later they divorced.

What did this mean for me?
Firstly, as a child, I had an enjoyable childhood because there was no structure. With 5 kids all under the age of 8, fighting for attention of a single parent, you can see this was a challenge for my mum.
We lived below the poverty line, living in a council house (a ‘housing project ‘). Having ‘no structure” can be quite disruptive!

This developed various personality traits for me;
• I am independent and I will get jobs done as I had no one else to rely on.
• I have a voice and am not afraid to speak out if felt necessary, as if I don’t ask, I don’t get.
• Although I have learnt to work to a structure, I can very easily jump into an agile environment and go with the flow.

Pivot No.1 – Challenge accepted

Later in life I also discovered I was a bit of a rebel.

I can still remember my boss, a Sharon Stone look-alike, short blonde hair, tall and elegant saying: –

Neeta, I am so proud of you, you just came out of University, got married, joined us on a permanent basis less than two years ago, and now, you have qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant.

Well done! We are going to promote you to a Tax Accountant, give you a pay rise, you won’t get that anywhere else”.

Ms Stone just killed my moment of excitement but at the same time, she had set me a challenge.  1997, was a pivotal moment in my life, as I learnt, “Don’t let others define you”.

I spent the next 20 years working with a few employers yet worked with so many small to large businesses in different industries, developing my knowledge about business. I became a Business Consultant for large software companies which gave me huge exposure to change management with people and business, transformation, process improvement, training, analytics, software and automation, scenario planning, sales, marketing, leadership and coaching.

Pivot No.2 – Opportunity accepted

In 2017, I was made redundant for the third time, my self-esteem fell rock bottom. Yet I am so passionate about customer satisfaction that I carried on working during my gardening leave, looking after my assigned clients. One client to my surprise asked me to leave the Corporate world, become my own boss and work with them.

Pivot No.3 – Independence accepted

In 2019, I faced a moment in my life where it was me that needed help. I had exhausted my network to find the next contract that I needed a radical change.

Why I started my business

• When you don’t believe in yourself, but others do.
• When you are stuck on your next step and need guidance.
• When there is a need to connect and be understood.
• When there is support around you, yet you feel unsupported as a person.
• I hear you; I have been there.

Therefore, I focus on partnering with established CEOs who have mastered their career yet know there is more to give, to leave their legacy.  Maybe you are feeling stuck, lost or even confused, yet you want to grow in many ways, to thrive and not just survive in business.

I have gathered all my knowledge and education into an acceleration program to work with you, to take courageous action to champion and transform your business into exponential financial success.

What makes me different?

I have developed my own framework that can be the vehicle to take you to where you want to be, to ignite the fire and passion back into your business and into your life by taking a balanced approach to success.

I understand that success can mean different things to different people, and so I take the time to understand you, the person behind the business.

Given my extensive corporate background, which is now encapsulated in my unique framework, I work with you to think outside the box and from different angles to ensure you have a solid foundation for your business.  Sometimes clients want to focus purely on the numbers, or them as a person, sometimes it is their team, my agile approach allows me to be flexible for you!  

The result, well why not hear it from my clients – Testimonials
