about /

Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule. Nevertheless one had better know the rules, for they sometimes guide in doubtful cases - though not often. (Paracelsus) 

Mull it over - then proceed to rule your life.

stories of transition /

LaTia Reed, USA.

While working a nine-to-five in corporate America I had a brush with death. After hearing the words "you would probably not live to see the end of the week," I promised my higher source that if I would be granted the grace to pull through this deadly virus, I'd live more purposefully and help others in doing the same.Transition to a purposeful life was tough, with my relationships and my finances falling apart. I am now a Life Purpose Coach/Consultant assisting women in living with authenticity, abundance and purpose. Get in touch here.

Azim Nobeebaccus, UK.

My journey took me through a path of instability. Drugs, crime, addictions & prison were no strangers growing up; for most of my life I was quite simply living in fear. Suicide was a strong possibility. Around the age of 21 I 'woke up' and began a journey of overcoming and self relization. I vowed to operate from a place of love rather than hate. Healing myself and others is my true purpose. I help others rediscover their true essence and assist in rekindling that flame within. I currently work as a holistic therapist specializing in Reiki, Shiatsu, Meditation & Conscious Breathing. I run a weekly meditation group online. contact

Stacy Laine, USA. 

I was in corporate middle management overseeing nearly 100 people and earning over 6 figures. I was focused on everyone’s needs instead of my own. To hide my misery I would buy too much stuff and binge eat which resulted in me reaching size 26. Over a year ago, I quit my job and sold nearly everything I owned, cleared all my debt and left my hometown. I now frequently travel, focus on my health and my own needs including running daily, work part time as a mindset coach and as a historic house curator.

Elizabeth Mayorga, Canada

I pursued my dream career as a Mexican diplomat for 13 years. However, when my priorities began to change, my job didn't. Inside me, I felt my soul was dying, and I wasn't sure what was wrong with me. I embarked on a search and started to keep a journal. After a while, I realised that often I was writing about wanting to resign. My husband took my decision well, although my family and friends were shocked. While doing a course about life purpose, I realised that I wanted to create a career change that involved my longstanding passions for empowering women and creating community. For many years I organised women empowerment conferences for Spanish speakers in Vancouver. I am now a certified life coach and building my own business. It has definitely been a leap of faith! Currently I help women to develop good habits and drop the habits that don´t serve them. contact me on

Lisa Kelly, Canada.

I had it all or so I thought. A well paid career with benefits and a great pension. What more could a woman ask for? But this all there is to life? There has to be more. These were the questions swirling around my head day after day until I couldn't take it anymore. I knew I had to live my life purpose and be authentically me. Leaving a 20 year career wasn't easy, but definitely a must if I was to live a purpose driven life. Want to know more? Click here 



Aggy Osoro, Kenya. 

I had a traumatic childhood which I suppressed for many years until it all blew up when I was a teenager. Raised as a Christian, I felt God had abandoned me.I decided I didn't want to live anymore but in the process I suddenly realized I had had survived so much and that meant my life must have a purpose.Years later, I landed a well paid job in Dubai, but after six years I felt something was missing. I remembered I had a purpose and I knew it wasn't my then job. I quit and came back to Kenya to try out other things. In the process I met a coach who helped me connect the dots.
My life purpose is to help others develop their self-confidence and discover their purpose so they can live a fulfilling,impactful life. Get in touch on 

Jessica Janniere, USA.

I grew up in an extremely unstable and violent family in an impoverished community in the USA. I survived sexual assault, rape, beatings, bullying, drug abuse and three suicide attempts before the age of 19. When my younger sister was murdered due to gang violence, I realized there must be a purpose to my life, if I am still alive. I removed myself from the toxic environment and slowly began to heal. There were key elements that helped me create a life that is purposeful and fulfilling- faith, support, forgiveness, and a commitment to my own growth. Today I am an Adversity expert, best-selling author, and the founder of an award-winning personal development organization, Look Up and Beyond. To learn more visit
