Lovely to see you here – thanks for joining me!!
A little bit about me in case you’re interested.
So, here I am, on the go… even if it’s sometimes in circles. Ever curious, I’m on a creative journey to seek beauty and find joy. Come and join me if and when you can!
In 2020, I took an early retirement package – yeah! Freedom 55!! – only to have a stroke 6 months later. Scary stuff but luckily, it wasn’t too severe and I’ve bounced back pretty well. At the time, after years of globe-trotting for an international UK based charity, working in international development, I had just moved to Sardinia to join my Italian husband and start a different kind of life – slower, more relaxed pace, more in tune with nature. Kids are grown and leaving the nest too so another bonus in the quest for a calm and peaceful life.
You know when you’ve been working flat out and then you go on holiday and spend the first week of it sick because you’re so run down? Well, I think that’s what happened. The stroke was an alarm bell but also an enforced rest, a reset and inspiration to get off my ass and really start walking the talk of self-care, focussing on the things that nurture my body and make my heart sing. Being gentle and forgiving with myself.
For some years now I’ve been a women’s empowerment and personal branding coach. A side hustle while working in corporate and loved working with clients so much so that it’s now a big focus of my energy and time. BUT, I’m also focussing on me – can’t give back from an empty cup, right?! – so busy gardening, writing and painting, walking and eating well, starting new habits, exploring and experimenting. It’s a curious and creative journey! You can see some of my art adventures below from Pinterest (or visit https://www.pinterest.co.uk/foxonthego/) or come find me on https://www.instagram.com/f_ox/
That old line of Betty Davis’, ‘old age ain’t for sissies’, makes me laugh now as the fact that I’m not 20 or even 40 anymore hits home but, actually, I haven’t felt so well in many years… bring on the golden years!
much love and hugs – be good to you!
ps – If you’re interested in working with me as a coaching client, I have some limited availability. All coaching is done remotely via zoom or skype. Just drop me a note at email@example.com. We can start with a free 30 minute discovery call to see if we’d be a good fit. A new page dedicated to my coaching practice is coming soon… for now, there’s some info and a few testimonials here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/fionapape/
