Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. I’m Zoe, originally Welsh and now back in Wales having lived, worked and travelled all over the world.
The Business Self
For most of my adult life, I’ve supported multinationals and SMEs to launch products into the retail channel with a focus on EMEA. I’ve worked in marketing, advertising, business strategy, business development, and consulting. If you put all of those different elements together the core skills I learned are B2B relationship management and communication.
The Spiritual & Creative Self Experiment
In 2017 I accepted that it was time for a change, so in 2018 I literally packed everything up, turned off social media and writing on this blog and went to live in Bali and India on a creative sabbatical. I decided I needed space, time and peace away from the world to get lost a little and to find out why I am here, on this planet.
I was open-minded about what I would learn and naturally I’m very curious so I experimented. Reiki, women’s circles, business circles, tarot reading, poetry, magical story writing and musical therapy. Some of these skills, I ended up teaching and mentoring, in both one-to-one and group formats. Again to tie the many threads together, the core of what I learned is deep listening without judging and how to hold space for people to open up and be themselves.
The Life-Changing Accident / The Shift
In 2020 I had a near-fatal accident in India during COVID, which left me with a left brain injury. The damage is in the area of language, emotions, memory and expression. Now, 2 years later, I have gone from not being able to remember my name, speak or read properly to being about 70% functional in terms of information processing.
Learning Acceptance & The Breakthroughs
What I set as my intention when healing from this accident was acceptance. Acceptance not just of the accident, but acceptance of how life can change at any moment. Acceptance of reality. Our goals and expectations often don’t go to plan, and things come in the way. There can be frustration, anger and many other emotions.
Acceptance of change can be very difficult when we live in a world with a heavy focus on careers and linear achievements. Life is not like that, but this can be a bitter pill to swallow, and the pill that I have learned to swallow over and over.
So now it’s time to bring all of my learnings together from the business and the creative world into little neat and structured packages. My first product offer is Acceptance Mentoring which I’m happy to cover for more personal as well as business issues.
