I am fighting the belief that no one will be interested in reading a blog post that is purely about me, because why would anyone want to do that when they can be doing a ton of other amazing things instead?
But let’s just see what happens before jumping to wild accusations.
First up, who am I?
How deep shall I get with this question? My name is Phoebe Hook… (off to a good start!), I am a Gemini, my totem spirit animal is a Fox and I wish I knew how to surf. I’m slightly addicted to coconut water, there is Irish blood in my veins, and I failed my year 11 computing class because I couldn’t be bothered handing in my assignments. I am the firstborn of 3 children, have 3 children of my own and my aim is to be the type of person I wish for them to one day become. Brave. Generous. Kind. Smart. Confident. You know, all the usual stuff any parent wishes for their kids.
It really wasn’t until I had kids of my own did I start to really grasp the concept of being a good example that my parents tried to infuse on me growing up. If I was any kind of example, it wasn’t the good kind. Depression. Attempted Suicide. Fast cars. High School Drop Out. Everything I did, just do the opposite.
Until now of course. I take my role as a leader far beyond my kids, and into the lives of women across the globe all wanting to step up and be the leaders of their own tribes. Because now I realise that the world needs more people to step up and be an example. No more of the just do as I say lines falling on deaf ears, but rather, take my hand and follow me, because this journey is going to be worth taking.
Why did I start blogging?
Well I had a revelation. I set up my business to be a business with a blog, and I struggled. It felt inauthentic and I was blank for content, until one day I realised that I didn’t want my business to have a blog, I wanted my business to be a blog. Bells started ringing, lights flashed on and the heavens sang in delight… and it’s been pretty mind blowing since.
+ It’s a freakin awesome way to make your business stand out and infuse your unique factor (YOU!) into your brand. Just sayin! Get on it.
Who is my blog for?
You. I hope. Women who are looking for a better way to live their lives. Women who have questioned is this all there is? Women who are ready to take their dreams seriously. Women who want to live their passion through entrepreneurship. Women who want to be their own example to the people in their own lives so they can show their loved ones that chasing their dreams, isn’t just for dreamers.
What is something that I have been working on lately that I am really excited about?
Where do I start? At the time I am writing this my website has been live for 24 hours but I haven’t actually told anyone yet except for the girls in my mastermind group. Ha! I have been putting the finishing touches on my Goal Achievers program for a 2015 start, I’ve been recording content for my Build a Soulful Business group and then of course working with my 1:1 clients. I seriously have so much going on I could burst, and it’s all so delicious I can’t wait for you to sink your teeth into it. The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades!
What is the one message I hope people will take away from my blog?
That you are enough. Just as you are. Right now. You don’t need permission from anyone to do what you want to do, you just need to believe in yourself enough, or have a crazy burst of insane courage to just get out there and do it. And if it all seems like too much, keep coming back here because it’s my honour to help you and believe in you enough until you can do it on your own.
It would be my absolute pleasure.
Big love, and thanks for blowing my assumptions out of the water by reading this!
