When I think back to the start of 2014, when I was trying to develop a soulful biz whilst also downing several bottles of wine per week, I wonder what on Earth I was thinking.

Well, truthfully, I know what I was thinking:  I can do it all, I’m Superwoman! The wine is actually helping me! It soothes my stress; it boosts my creativity. It doesn’t slow me down. Honest…

Oh, denial. You kidder.

Like Johannah, sobriety allowed me to (finally!) grow up and become the woman I was meant to be. And when it comes to building a soulful biz, the increased clarity, creativity, and productivity is it’s own reward. When you love your work as much as Johannah and I do, it means everything.

When Johannah stopped drinking 12 years ago, her life completely changed. Join us as we talk long-term sobriety, love, men, growth, changing direction, and chasing down your dreams…

“[Sobriety] enabled me to grow up and to really gain some more life skills. It was an evolution. But I had to grow up in order to realise that there was a big wide world out there, and also that great things could happen to you.

Because I’d always thought it, but I thought that it happened in the bottle. Or in a fancy restaurant drinking fancy champagne. I didn’t realise that you need to take one little step here and there, to create those big dreams. And that they’re possible for everybody.”
