The ‘Answers to Thriving' is an interview series that takes a look at the women who have created a life of self-success. We uncover key moments, lessons and habits that have influenced the life they lead today.


You can’t start the day without:

Reading my affirmations and intentions and revisiting why I do what I do.

A favourite quote is:

I have two. One is our hashtag, “Just do you". It’s so powerful in so many ways and it embodies everything we are at YMag®. My second is from Mark Twain: “The two most important days of your life are when you were born and when you know why".

Do you feel that your previous businesses all helped contribute to you finally living your 'Y'?

One hundred percent. Our 'Y' is a journey and we evolve. I had many businesses in 15 years and at each turn, I pivoted closer to my 'Y'. When life is tumultuous and things aren’t going to plan, we’re unhappy, we’re grumpy and disheartened, often it’s because we’re not actually doing what we’re born to do, we’re not living out our soul fingerprint. Whereas when we find that w
