I’m Faye and I’m a mindset and business coach who helps wedding business owners become the best version of themselves.
After university I had a clear goal – I wanted to work in a creative industry. Television to be precise. I’d worked at the BBC, studied photography and media, and I found the buzz of the whole industry massively exciting and totally intoxicating. I had an enormous decision to make though because I also craved wealth. I’d moved from the West Country to London to make my fortune and as a highly motivated graduate I could see that a poorly paid role at the BBC wouldn’t get me there quick enough.
So I made the heartbreaking decision to find a new path. Weeks later I started working for a Japanese tech company with a salary three times bigger. I felt like I’d sold my soul, but the money was great and significantly bigger than any of my graduate friends. Bingo.
Before long I was earning big commission and bringing in paycheques I could never even have imagined. The following 10+ years saw promotion, pay rises and even more commission. Soon I was living the corporate dream of company cars, company credit cards, work trips, private health and fantastic bonuses.
But I wasn’t happy.
I can remember the exact feeling of going into one particular boardroom pitch. I was certain we would win the deal (when all of my colleagues were on tenterhooks). Significantly I can remember thinking how the win didn’t really mean much to ME.
I just didn’t care like I knew I should.
I craved something else, something more, something bigger and something better. I wanted to use my passion and my desires to create my own personal wealth. I knew I wanted to be the face of MY business.
