What drives us

MindSteadyGo was created out of a quest to find a more balanced way to live life after surviving some very stressful industries and business positions.

 

MindSteadyGo combines the founder’s two loves – business and wellness. Better businesses create a better world, healthier businesses create a healthier world, empathetic businesses create a more empathetic world – something we want for ourselves and future generations.

An empty nester at age fifty, I wrapped up my 12-year business life in Beijing, China and set off to seek a career change. Exhausted from running my translation business there, I gave it away (literally & legally) and kept my online English editing business to fund my newfound freedom.

The idea that drove me forward during those years, was that I wanted to get out of my head and back into my body. My work was very intellectual: translating cultural content, editing academic documents, interpreting for UN agencies etc, and it felt like my ‘head’ was running the show and my body merely served to lug it around. I wanted to change that and reconnect to my body and my ‘lost’ inner self.

As things started to change in me during those four years of travel, across four continents and 15 countries, I realised that although I had removed stress from my life I missed the excitement of business.

By then I had built on my two-decade yoga practice by qualifying as a yoga teacher. My graduation marked the beginning of a one-year breath quest–starting with certification as a free diver–to explore the power of breath.

It became obvious I should share what I was learning; I wanted to support other people, particularly business people, to find wellness in their work and family life. Armed with that idea, I combined my two loves of business & wellness into a new venture and set up MindSteadyGo on my return to the UK.

My hope is that I offer at least some of the services – retreats, wellness days, burnout recovery stays– that you are seeking. Get in touch with me – I’d like to hear your story too.
