When she came to see me, Mary was coming to the end of her savings. She had taken redundancy from a high powered career she no longer loved to set up a local shop which was a dream she had had for some time.
But the reality of running a shop wasn’t as she had anticipated and, by the time she closed it, she was close to burn-out. She was heavy with the sense of failure and hadn’t found the energy to try something new.
Defining her passions helped Mary explain her recent experiences and identify the business she would love to do, running a club and organising high end events. Immediately her energy and enthusiasm returned and she was full of ideas for her new business.
