I know it feels like a broken record but each week I get so excited to invite an inspiring crew of lady entrepreneurs to share their tips, journey and know how.
Today’s guest is Emma Gwillim a success coach for ambitious mummies! I love what she is offering and most importantly that she walks her talk. I hope you enjoy this interview.
Make sure to join The Glitterati – tribe of illuminated women here!
I’m a Success Coach for ambitious mummies based in the UK. I help women who feeling like they’ve lost their identity, their direction and their motivation to reawaken to their inner sparkle and to nurture their ambitions as well as their families.
I’m a mummy myself. I have an 18 month old little boy and I’m expecting our second baby this springtime…. My business is my third baby and I’m learning each day to juggle the three, as well as making time for the other aspects of my life.
Outside of the love for my family and my business, what makes me sparkle is yoga, escaping with a book, baking, any form of pampering treat – manicures, facials, a bubble bath – and (when not pregnant) a lovely glass of wine.
What inspired you to become a success coach for entrepreneurial moms?
There was never a lightbulb moment, although I think I’ve always been a “coach” before I realised it – it’s the big sister in me! I’ve followed my heart and my intuition and it’s brought me to a point where I’m deeply passionate about what I do and who I want to help. It took me until I was in my late twenties to realise that I’d been following a career path that wasn’t for me – I felt lost and obligated to keep working hard in something that didn’t fulfil me for the wrong reasons. I got reacquainted with all the things that lit me up and discovered my true passion – helping others to realise their unique potential. I believe that everyone is here to live a life that sparkles… Yet too often we compromise.
My path evolved again when I became a mummy and I learned that mums have a unique set of challenges – again it made me realise that I want to be a cheerleader for these women who are busy nurturing everyone else.
What advice would you give to women who crave living a richer/full life?
Simply listen to the whispers. The answers are there.
Trust that you have a unique purpose – an inner sparkle, as I call it – that you are meant to share with the world. – Tweet It 🙂
That inner knowing is too often drowned out by the rational thoughts, the busy every day, the baggage of yesterday’s and the fear of what if… Simply allowing yourself the time and space to listen to that inner tug, your intuition, can lead you to the richness and fullness that is your birthright.
What are your go to self-care tools and experiences that restores you to your best self?
I’m a girly girl. Nothing makes me feel more nurtured and cared for than a little pampering. Of course, I love the indulgence of a spa day with my mum, sister or friends, but the simplest acts of enjoying a bubble bath or a DIY manicure make me feel like me again. To make sure I get that replenishment in an otherwise hectic week, I’ve earmarked Sunday evening – once my baby is sleeping – as ‘nurture night’. It’s the one time in the week that I prioritise me.
What inspires you to continue living a life you love each day?
My family and the desire to live my fullest potential. I’m inspired by the future I plan to create for my family. I’m inspired by the intuitive sense that I’ve got more to give and share. And I continue to be inspired by the wonderful people I get to work with – sharing in their experience of awakening brings me such happiness.
