Hi! I’m Nina- welcome to my family!
I’m a mum of 4 kids and the one in the red shirt and headphones holding my little man.
Post covid 2020, after trying to keep it all together, I walked away from the commercial lease on my co-working and workshop business in Frankston.
Due to corona, the business had been forcibly closed since March 2020, and with homeschooling 3 kids and no income coming in, I just couldn’t sustain a commercial lease and expenses PLUS a residential lease and expenses for another minute longer.
By December 2020 I walked away from everything I had worked so hard to build with absolutely nothing.
I had lost the lot.
Birthing A Dream Life
It’s an interesting moment to wake up one day and realise everything is gone.
There is no money in the bank.
The house is sold.
The business is gone.
You look around and wonder.
The Prosperity Project
With the commercial lease on my business gone, yet government payments for jobkeeper still being paid until March 2021, it was time to weigh up my options.
I was starting again with no commercial lease…yes that was true…but I still had all of my teaching and learning resources from years gone by.
I now had a great opportunity to pursue my unfinished work from The Prosperity Project- Mind Body Business, without worrying about my in-person business and commercial lease, and yet I still had both the Garden’s website and also The Prosperity Project website too.
Things weren’t all bad!
Committed to Creativity
In addition to The Prosperity Project, I had now been given an amazing opportunity to birth a brand new life from scratch- because….well…..what else was there to do?
I could wallow in misery and look at the empty cup of everything I had lost, or I could jump for joy and look at that same empty cup with excitement of all the opportunity I had to fill it!
And so the Birthing a Dream Life Series was born.
Starting with the knowledge gained from my signature program of The Journey of 1,000 Steps, I designed the Know You & Love You Journaling Books and then made a commitment to rebuild my life with a solid foundation of freedom, love and authenticity.
I made a real life date with myself for New Years Eve 2022, and then formed a joint venture with another business mama- Kathy from Steppin’ Out Events- and together we designed a program for men and women who were also looking to rebuild their lives based on the things they valued and were important to them.
Joining forces enabled each of us to do what we do best.
Me with creating 30 value driven journaling prompt books to help people imagine of a life not yet birthed, and Kathy with building a real life action plan of monthly events to help people connect both in person and online.
Step by step, little by little, my new life was starting to be born.
Next on my list was the commitment to sharing The journey of 1,000 Steps with others.
This is my own signature training I developed over the last 5 years to teach and transfer knowledge.
The Journey of 1,000 Steps features heavily in all of my work- whether it’s mind, body, business or creativity.
A signature style of learning, it’s also a signature style of teaching too.
Not giving up
I have no idea where 2021 and the years after that are going to take me.
I’m not sure if my new business ventures will take off, if we will get housing, if I will fit into my bikini, meet my soul mate, publish 120 books, learn to sail, write a teaching resource, get a sponsor, record a podcast, create an online course, and find my tribe or my 1,000 true fans.
But no matter what happens, I invite you to join me on a journey of wonderful new beginnings, and if you would like to share your journey too, then please feel free to reach out and say hello, or join us in The Know You & Love You Community.
