Lovely to meet you here Marina – when did your business journey start?
It started back in 2011 when I was fired from my music business job. I knew then that I wouldn’t work for anyone again.
Whatever aspect of your business we look at, its always about effortless – can you tell us more of your experience as to why you choose that as a theme (or did it choose you?)
We use the terms struggling, stuck as words to describe how we are experiencing business/life. I see these moments as states of mind. A mind that is searching that takes you out of the present moment.
Effortless for me is when you have clarity of mind and when you are in the present moment – without analysis. Some would call it flow/mental clarity. It’s possible to experience regardless of the circumstances. You see how we feel doesn’t come from our situations or other people. It comes from the thinking we have on the moment 100 percent of the time. The insights and realizations we have help us to declutter the mental chaos that we experience which is why over time we can spend more time in that peace and mental clarity I speak of. This is how we experience effortlessness.
What has been the ah-ha moment in your life and how did you cope with it? Any special tips?
I have had many. And keep having them. If I were to chose one it would be – we are built for insight. Who we are is universal intelligence in disguise.
You have written a new book Joy of Being – what can we expect to learn and understand within its pages?
The book points to 2 truths
- We are always feeling our thinking 100 percent of the time
- We are divinity in disguise
If you insightfully see this – you will experience more joy and miracles!!
What does ‘being’ mean to you?
It’s a state of mind – being – in the present moment. Experiencing life without anything on our minds.
Who, or what is your main source of inspiration for joy / being and why?
My main source is the wisdom I experience. The intelligence that exists and that created us. Am in awe of it and am always extremely humbled by it.
Coaching is very much part of our world today – what does it mean to you and what would be the benefits of having a coach?
For me, it’s about having someone sitting to really listen and understand your world. To create an environment for you to have your own insights. Coaching is hugely beneficial as it helps us uncover our blind spots that stop us from living the life we want. It makes navigating life easier. When you know how a sliding door works – you won’t be attempt to open and close it!
One thing you will achieve in 2019 to being you joy of being?
To successfully launch (to have about 500 mums do the course this year) my online #MumRelief: Back To Balance online course – to free mums of the mental burdens of motherhood and modern day life 🙂
What books have you read this year because they inspired you? why?
The Missing Link by Sydney Banks
The Enlightened Gardner by Sydney Banks
Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers by Robert M. Sapolsky
Clarity by Jamie Smart
I am guessing you are a lover of quotes – what is your favourite and why?
It really speaks to who we are and what we are made of. It’s also the quote that changed my life and set me on course to have the life I have today – one where I experience love and understanding as my default not as exception.
What would be your advice to the younger you?
Relax. All the loneliness, depressions and suicidal thinking you have ever felt isn’t who you are. You experience these moments but they are not who you are. Notice the glimpses of joy – these moments are what you can trust and share insight into who you are.
I am waving my magic make it happen wand – what dream are you daydreaming about?
To be in a committed relationship where love and understanding is the foundation that it stands on.
What’s your preferred method of connecting with you?
