My story

From an early age I knew that I wanted to make an impact in the world, but I received very little support and encouragement from people around me. I wanted to make a difference and I wanted to be different.


I spent most of my teenage years improving my skills and increasing my knowledge in order to become a journalist. I read hundreds of books, I wrote tons of articles and I even practiced public speaking in an attempt to prove myself to everyone else. At that time I didn’t know that I was good enough, smart enough and brave enough and that there was no need to be validated by others. I learned this painful aspect years later…

Confidence & I hadn’t had the best relationship growing up…

In 2011 I was admitted to four universities in the UK to study Communications, Culture and Media. My future was beginning to take shape. Those years flew by… working almost 12 hours a day, studying during the night and pretending to have a balanced life.


In 2012 I started to become interested in personal development, self-discovery and coaching.


What an amazing journey I was about to go down!


At that time, I had no idea how fortunate I was to be able to view things from a different perspective.


I graduated from Coventry University in 2014 and soon after I fell into the corporate world.

Huge companies, big visions, important roles, deadlines, stress…

I was a young ambitious career woman trying to succeed in a world that didn’t really care how stressed I was and how hard I tried to prove myself. But I received appreciation from my managers and that kept me going, no matter how overwhelmed and tired I felt.


Two years ago,… it was a hectic day in the office. I had a few meetings back to back, lots of phone calls and my inbox was exploding with emails. I took a deep breath and looked around me…I could see the frustration on my colleagues’ faces.


Everyone seemed to be so tired and fed up.

I was climbing up the wrong ladder…

I have never felt as unhappy as I was in that moment. I felt trapped in a career that fed my hungry ego but never fulfilled my soul. I realized I was climbing up the wrong ladder.


The mirage of success is so tempting that we often forget about our private lives and our souls. There is a very fine line between success and burnout and many successful women end up being overwhelmed, stressed and incapable of achieving work-life balance.


I looked back at the child who wanted to make an impact in the world, I looked back at the teenage girl who had that burning desire to succeed without knowing what success means…and finally I looked at me - the adult unhappy career woman.


Then and there I promised myself that in a few months time, my life will be different. And different it was…


Something changed inside of me in that very moment. Somehow…I knew I was meant for more.


A year later, I said goodbye to my fancy titled job, leaving the corporate career behind and I decided to branch out on my own despite all the negative feedback and comments from my family and friends.

I have finally started to live for myself, not for the society. What a relief!

It’s been seven years since I started this amazing personal development journey. I can truly say that it wasn’t easy, but it got me to where I am today.


I studied a lot, I read a lot, I experienced a lot… and moreover, I invested multiple 5 figures into my own personal and professional development.


I decided to start my own business as a Coach for career women who are facing the same struggles I have already faced and have managed to overcome. I now help overwhelmed and insecure women to build unshakable confidence, make necessary career changes and create a live free from needing other people’s approval.

Love, Ramona
