Q 1- How does your normal day begin?
Erm – Slowly! I am brought alive only by hot tea.
After replying to any fresh emails or DM’s, I then find some inspiring quotes to come around to. I top and tail every day with quotes! My brain loves them.
Q 2- What are your biggest daily challenges?
There are not enough hours in the day, I believe in maximising every minute of my day and I get frustrated when I can’t get to all the things that excite me.
Q3- What do you love most about your job?
I love inspiring people. Whether that’s on a call about transformation, driving careers or coaching. I also love getting to innovate, brainstorm and improve on existing concepts.
Q 4- What do you do to relax?
I scroll for new thought concepts. I am a bit of a Duracell bunny so to release the tension I get active, make a fun TikTok, dance, go running, or do some keep fit.
Q 5-Favourite staycation destination in Ireland and why?
I am a city lover so my favourite has to be Dublin. I have a choice of beaches to run on, lots of choice in restaurants and bars (usually) and I actually like the Dubs!
Q 6-Favourite holiday destination worldwide?
Spain, because I work so hard I play hard to stay balanced. I can be on a beach within a few hours of leaving Dublin and there is usually plenty of nightlife for this energy bunny.
Q 7-Favourite Business motto?
‘If it’s not broke don’t fix it’ because unfortunately, I have seen many reasonable processes demolished and replaced with something more cumbersome long term in large organisations.
Q 8. Advice for young business entrepreneurs
There is no such thing as failure, there is only learning. Learn the lessons the first time though.
