Emma Sidney’s Journey
WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I’m a digital copywriter and strategist, also a musician. The best way to describe myself is as an ideator, innovator and creative.
WHAT PROBLEM WERE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE?
I’ve been juggling several roles; client work, motherhood, back injury and growing my business, I also wanted to move to a home office that was warmer. Understanding and growing my business and balancing everything at once has been a challenge.
HOW WAS THE PROBLEM AFFECTING YOU?
Being in pain and wanting to move faster is a frustrating way to live, especially when you aren’t sure what’s stopping you. I was at times really effective and at others so tired and sore it was overwhelming, and nothing seemed to work.
WHAT POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS DID YOU CONSIDER?
I have a coach, I did think of going back to work at one point. I wasn’t sure if my dream was too big. Sometimes it seemed I did not have a lot of solutions, although I was looking for something and attempting to work with several people to get my business moving.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ROSS PEPPER?
I wanted to work with Ross because I learned who he was and what he had overcome. I realised that if he could reach a level of happiness after being someone who was addicted to alcohol and didn’t feel he had a lot to offer, I could find that well spring of happiness I felt I was missing.
WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF YOU HAD NOT CHOSEN TO WORK WITH ROSS?
I would have continued to make smaller steps forward.
WHAT WAS YOUR THINKING AND BELIEFS BEFORE MEETING ROSS (SELF, BUSINESS, MONEY)?
I didn’t really think about myself, I was focussed on getting more money and did a lot of busywork rather than being effective. I wasn’t as clearly focussed on my health although I knew it needed improvement. I wanted something more and wasn’t sure how to get it. I was missing some key ingredients for success in terms of understanding, thinking, and actions that I wasn’t taking.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS NOW (SELF, BUSINESS, MONEY)?
I am taking time to nurture myself and am excited about my progress in health and well being. Having been in pain daily, I’m now rarely in pain and I’m reversing a chronic back condition and gaining in wellness. I’ve started to realise how amazing I am and to take steps to reinforce that when it isn’t feeling true. My business has tripled in the last few months which has been a result of who I am being now, and that’s in no small part due to Ross’ ability to help me find the breakthroughs that I couldn’t see for myself.
WHAT MEASURABLE BENEFITS HAVE YOU SEEN?
I am feeling better, looking better, more focussed, clear on my goals and passionate about who I am and what I do. I am actively creating the abundance in my life that I know is there for every one of us. I also feel held at any stage when I find I cannot create a change and need to find a way to elevate.
