the birth of ftc
8 years ago I was uninspired, burnt out and looking for something new. I had a very successful career as a performer appearing in musicals like Beauty and the Beast, Grease, Singing in the Rain and Cats, as well as travelling the world performing on world class cruise ships, yet slowly my passion was dying as the creativity was a necessity to make ends meet. As my body wasn’t getting any younger, I knew the end of that career was coming to an end. The hard thing about this was that performing wasn’t just something I did, it was who I was and how I defined myself.
While I did some soul searching, I thought I’d get a retail job to do something different and know where some of the next dollars were coming from. Thanks to a great friend, I landed on the door of lululemon athletica. While in the beginning I thought the company was too good to be true, I soon saw that this company’s number one priority was its people and I felt invested in every day.
A huge part of the lululemon culture is vision and goal setting and it didn’t take long for me to see the power of this. I created a powerful vision(which has changed several times since) and goals to make my vision a reality. I quickly learned that this wasn’t enough and I had to take actions to get there. Within 18months I had grown from an educator working 5hrs a week to a regional manager accountable for Western Australia, South Australia & Victoria. From there I became the training & development manager and became incredibly passionate about coaching people to live their absolute best lives! That was the path to a new career that I am incredibly passionate about and what inspired birth of forward thinking company.
4 years ago I became a certified leader in a body of work that I lean in to heavily in all the coaching and development I currently do. The body of work is igolu and I thank the founder and my teacher and mentor, Susanne Conrad for her inspiration and unwavering commitment to me living my best life.
