tackling the extreme: work and life during the pandemic


My grand-mother didn’t live to witness this pandemic. But I know if she had, she would have tackled it the same way she tackled everything else in her life.

She only had a forth-grade education. My grand-mother didn’t question her life, or the hard labour she endured as a cook in a lumber camp where my grand father worked, or the demands she put on herself as a foster parent to children abandoned on the church steps. She never wished for things to be different or easy.

Things simply were.

And she went along with them.

She had a marvellous saying: it is what it is.

When I was 10 years old, I asked her to explain what that meant. She said: you can’t change the present moment so you might as well enjoy it for what it is. If you want to change something, change your future; the now can’t be changed.

I don’t think I fully grasped what that meant at 10 years old but it stayed with me till this day.

And now I understand what it means. Especially during this pandemic.

Trying to fight the present moment or wishing it was different will only bring grief and struggle.

This is not to say you can’t change things, because you can. You can change your future, but you need to accept the current moment as it is and not fight it. Learn from it.

This pandemic has emphasized the need for us to focus on the current moment.

Now more then ever, if we want to remain sane, we must focus on the current moment. We must keep our heads out of the sand and we must, at all cost, keep our focus on the vision we have for ourselves, our business and our life.

Sounds easy?

It isn’t.

Focusing on the current moment is brutally hard. But it is also the only way we can move forward in our business and in our life.

I was recently interviewed for an article in Thrive global about Tackling The Extreme Work Life Balance Of Being A Woman Business Leader During COVID-19.

I answered questions such as:

  • The Covid-19 pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of our lives today. Can you articulate to our readers what are the biggest family related challenges you are facing as a woman business leader during this pandemic?

  • Can you share your advice about how to best work from home, while balancing the needs of homeschooling or the needs of a family?

  • Can you share your strategies about how to stay sane and serene while sheltering in place, or simply staying inside, for long periods with your family?

I invite you to read the article HERE.

I think it will greatly help you tackle the extremes of this pandemic and hopefully give you the tools you need to stay in the present moment while still crushing your business goals and enjoying your life.

To your success,


P.S. I know what it feels like to want so much out of life. To want to run a profitable business that has a positive and powerful impact on the world. I understand what it’s like to read endless leadership, self-development and business mastery books, looking for that edge that is going to quiet the overwhelm, build your confidence and give direction to your life and your business.

I know how all of it feels like because I was stuck there for years. And so have all my clients.

Don’t get me wrong. I read endless books on leadership, self-improvement and business skills. But what these books couldn’t give me, and what I realized was the missing piece is ACCOUNTABILITY. Accountability for me to build confidence, develop my leadership skills and create a clear vision of what I want in order to grow a profitable business.

It took me years and thousands of dollars spent on coaches, mentors, workshops and online courses to get to this point. And let’s not forget the two decades I spent travelling the world and working as an international corporate lawyer alongside top business leaders.

All of that got me to here. And HERE  is where I can help you. Because my own mission is:

To inspire and lead others to find clarity and realize their limitless potential.

No matter what stage you are at in your life, getting clear on your vision and your mission is the greatest gift you can give yourself. It is what will bring you the greatest fulfilment. Not to mention, the greatest abundance and the greatest business growth.

When you are clear on what you want, you can focus all of your energy and your willpower on making it happen. You will notice things will start flowing, new opportunities show up, ideal clients, partnerships and collaborations are directed your way.

You may not understand how this is all happening and this is far from being “magic” or some woo woo concept. This is simply you getting clear on what you want, building the skills to make it happen and channeling your energy accordingly.

If you are looking for that transformation, if you are looking to build your confidence, develop skills to succeed and you have reached that point where you know there is more to get from your life and your business but you just don’t know how to get there, then I can help you.

I can guide you through the step by step process of
building your confidence, developing your leadership skills, getting clear on your vision and growing a profitable business.

My style of mentoring is tailored to you, your needs, your experiences and your desired outcomes. This is not some cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all kind of coaching.

This is for those that are willing to put in the work to get more out life and their business: more money, more abundance, more joy, more freedom, more fulfilment.

If this sounds like you, if you are like all of my other succesful clients that came to me searching for clarity, accountability and results, then I urge you to CLICK HERE and get in touch with me directly.

I will directly respond to your email. Not my assistant or another coach. I will personally assist you.

But let me make this clear for you, before you click that link. You are going to have to work for what you want. I am not a “cheerleader” type of coach.

Yes I will support you 1000% but I will also call you out when you need it most.

So if discipline, rigour and commitment are words that scare you, then we are not meant for each other. And that’s ok.

You do you.

My commitment to my clients and their success is limitless, and I expect the same from them.

Remember, this is about YOU.


In order to get you there, you will need to work through the process.

If you are ready then I can’t wait to work with you. CLICK HERE.
