About Evelyn – The NLP Coach
I’ve been evolving all of my life, changed careers often and at times, felt regret. But I kept pushing forward in my quest for living a life filled with passion and purpose and growing in strength and wisdom every step of the way.
In my early 30’s I made a huge decision to leave the corporate world behind because I wanted to be present and support my young family guiding them on their own journey. This decision was not easy. It required me to break free from the corporate world I loved so much, and I truly struggled with the decision from a professional perspective. This decision however, did secure my over-arching dream to have a loving and happy family life, and, an amazing career. You see I wanted both – It was simply “Not Negotiable”!
I found myself an amazing coach and true friend, which led me on my own mystical journey, diving deep into dark places I previously feared to tread. I came out the other side committed to my decision of leaving corporate behind and started my small business “Real Focus”.
In the beginning, I worked closely with some fabulous people in the real estate industry. One of my wildly important goals was to help bring the industry up to speed with the technological changes of the day (www.realestate.com.au was launching – and wow did it take a lot for agents to come on board with internet and software – Just look at them now!). Another important dream was to be part of a greater cause and lifting the image of the Australian real estate industry through my industry specific training. And always in the forefront of my mind was my mission to maintain a happy and stable family life.
As with all relationship and business decisions, there were a number of bridges to cross and dragons to slay (especially with my sometimes dominant and controlling personality. And can I just say, I am so glad I did not back down or walk away. I continue to enjoy being in a loving marriage of 39 years with my soul mate, have two wonderful Gen Y children and I feel blessed to have found such depth in my personal and professional relationships. And all this happening while carving out and working in a career that I simply love and adore, doing exactly what I love to do.
