What is this life I am living now?
I’ve heard the saying “When life throws you curve balls grab a bat and swing” and I always thought it was a bit of a cliché. My whole life I’ve been a kind of lucky, with a little work most things that have come to me, have come easily. I could list the co-incidences and “meant to be” moments, this new chapter of my life is one of them and I’m excited about where it is taking me.
Who am I? Well let me introduce myself, I’m Rachelle: – a mother of three amazing children Izabella, Clayton and Logan, as with any mother everything I do, I do for them. I have done something right though because they are all smart, respectful, loving and resilient. I live on a little hill with lovely views and my favorite thing to do is watch the sunrise. I come from a very large crazy, mixed up family where I am the oldest girl. I am blessed by the people in my life and I believe my friends would describe me as a good and kind person.
When my daughter was 9, I had this grand idea that I needed to show her that you didn’t have to settle for mediocre, that a woman could make something more of herself, be “more” for herself. So, at the ripe old age of 27 I started my beauty & hairdressing career. I have run a successful small hairdressing business for about 9 years but now it’s time for change and to prove to my daughter once again that you can reinvent yourself at any age.
That’s right…. “Curve balls” I’ve had quite a few in the last year. My life changed dramatically, I’ve discovered a lot about myself, who I want to be and where I want to go. So now I’m grabbing my opportunities and moving into a new career, one I didn’t dream would happen, but it comes from one of those “meant to be” moments and I could not ignore it.
So, what is this life I am living now? I’m lucky enough to be working with Andrew and Nicole, the founders of Quick Property, to help develop and build an innovative new real estate business. I am also studying to become an Estate Agent, I’m learning something completely new to me and discovering an interest I didn’t know I had.
I’m 41, a mum, working 3 jobs in completely different fields and back studying, to say I’m busy is an understatement but that is whole other story……
