Annabelle Drumm interviewed by Bupa Health

Bupa Health recently released an article on Making Your Life a Success Story with input from top Business Coaches and Keynote Speakers from around Australia. They asked me to contribute to the article. Making a unique version of what life and business success is to you personally was the first point I suggested.

From school age onward we are “guided” by teachers, parents, media content, friends and neighbours as to what success should look like. The usual images of fame, status, money and power are the carrots they dangle. It’s all too easy to follow their guidelines without questioning what success means to us personally. So often I get clients come to me puzzled that they achieved great success according to these guidelines and somehow feel empty, like a bit of a fizzer. The satisfaction they were chasing has not appeared.

That’s when we start from scratch and work towards finding what brings ultimate satisfaction to the individual, then direct our life or business coaching series in pursuit of it. The final success picture is often surprising, delightful and not at all what the client was originally chasing. I have seen radical change in people over a few short months which often completely changes the shape of their career or business, the way they spend their time/effort and leads to a very different, more contented person which I find really inspiring.

Here’s another video on Success Principles which are more personal to me from a while back – all still valid today. (Won me a trip to the USA as well!)

Have you found success in your career or business but still have that empty feeling? Want more satisfaction and peace of mind? Need support in bending the shape of your career to something that fits you perfectly? Let’s talk about what you need. I coach face to face here in Sydney or online with clients all around the world by video or phone.

Need help with career direction?

Online coach for career adviceIf you’ve had enough of the work you are doing and yearn to uncover what you’re truly meant to be doing, take a look at the Dream Job Startup program which is now available. Maybe you’re just working for money, not love, or maybe you started this job because it was what you loved at the time and now you’re finding it’s not what it’s cracked up to be.

I ran this as a course a while back formatted as a series of webinars. When I had to write the text to put on the sales page I was trying to think when I’d used this process before and immediately I thought of 5 different times I’d used it with people to great effect. It really works! Not just in the sessions where we were talking but in setting a clear direction in the mind so that serendipity took charge. Things started to fall into place within 1-6 months afterwards for each person. Beautiful Law of Attraction in action.

Uploading these webinars to a suitable platform so people could buy them at a great rate has been holding me up a bit as the platforms all seem to mostly want video files for students these days. However I can set this as a single face to face session if your budget is limited and you want a powerful reset in the direction you are heading or you can take a 3 or 6 month package of coaching to help support you to keep moving and assure a better result.

More details on the offering and case studies are here

April Special: Quick Solutions in Coaching

It’s April already! A third of the way through 2015. 

Career directionAre you getting to where you want to be?

Time is truly flying these days. That means where you put your focus every second of the day matters. If you are distracted your productivity takes a dive and you get to the end of the day wondering what happened. If you are stressed you will be devoid of the solutions you need to solve big and small problems that burden you every day.

When time flies this fast we end up spending so much time getting through the daily To Do list we feel like there is no time to plan out the bigger picture. It’s like running around in circles.

Enough of being stuck in a rut!

Are you ready to get a clear big picture of where you are going?

Work with me in a single coaching session wherever you need clarity:

  • pinpointing the career you really want
  • refreshing a personal relationship
  • planning for the future
  • making a decision
  • shifting out of an old pattern of thinking or behaviour

It’s time to shake things up a bit. Sometimes all you need is one brain storming session to get clear on what you really want or to find your way around a stubborn obstacle. I have no agenda in this conversation. You’ll have my full attention. I am all ears listening to what you need, spotting your potential and opening up your eyes to what is possible.

Single sessions for new clients are available up till the end of April for the very special price of only AUD $395. 

From here you can get clear on your decision, find peace of mind or even completely change direction. Work face to face with me in Sydney CBD, by phone, Skype or FaceTime globally.

BOOK NOW – offer closes 30 April 2015. Limited places available.

One session per new client must be ordered before close of 30 April 2015 and used by 30 May 2015. Yes, it is transferrable. No refunds.

Interview with Amy Miller from Social Schools

Career coach SydneyAnother interview this week. This time a Q&A on a more personal note with Social School’s Amy Miller here in Sydney, NSW Australia.

Included here for you below…

Q: What inspired you to start your business?

A: I currently work as a High Performance Coach, Trainer and Author. Previously, I spent 15 years running a Booking Agency for Performing Artists. The most fulfilling part of that job was nurturing their careers and helping them make their ideas commercially viable. Being a Booking service, my income came from Corporates, Event Managers and Festivals booking my Performers – a fairly ordinary service – so I decided to get full qualifications and go Coaching / Training full time. The training I did allows me to help all types of Business Owners, Entrepreneurs and Executives advance their career.

Q: What’s your background in business or your field?

A: I was a professional Performing Artist for 9 years myself, ran a Dance Company for 6 years and the Agency in Oz and NZ for 15 years. Self development is something I’ve always been curious about, studying Law of Attraction, Neuroscience and Quantum Physics over the years. Adding all that supposedly intangible theory into practical Coaching makes for very powerful results. Sometimes it’s so amazing it blows me away. I’ve had clients quadruple their income in 6 months, multiply their staff, buy up commercial property, become the highest Performers in their team.

As I take an holistic approach to Coaching, it has the added benefit of helping clients through personal stuff too. Issues such as divorce, Cancer, court cases, mending long term relationship rifts and even getting pregnant. I can’t guarantee any of it, of course. Much is to do with how willingly the client opens up to new ideas. I just love working with a motivated client where we build great trust and they get to stretch way beyond what they thought was possible.

Q: How do you balance your day to day working, balancing life and kids?

A: I’m a solo mother of two lads. I aim to be highly productive within school hours, completing as much as anyone in a full time job, then be available for the boys once they get home. The only challenges to that are when I’m dealing with clients or colleagues in the USA (early mornings) or the UK (in the evening). If there are no appointments in the evening, my computer is off after dinner. I find it helps slow my brain waves so I can sleep better. I also like to dance in the evenings or take a stroll through the local park at sunrise. I might be brave enough to hug a tree but don’t fancy taking a Huntsman with me for the rest of the walk. (For non-Australians these are big furry tarantula look-alikes up to 8 inches from tip toe to tip toe that frequent my park.)

Q: What do you love about running your own business?

A: I’ve been self employed for more than 20 years now. Wow, where did the time go? I love following my intuition rather than a heavily planned schedule for the day and like making gut instinct decisions rather than having long committee discussions. So the autonomy is ideal for me. I can work from home on phone / Skype video or visit the client in their own office which helps me understand the context of what they want help with. Flexibility, full creative license, a snooze after lunch if I need and doing what I feel I was put here on Earth to do. It ticks all the boxes on my own Career wish list.

Q: Do you have any plans for your business in the future?

A: Yes! Much is in my vision. I would like to do a talk show either on TV, radio or internet mixing coaching sessions viewers can watch and learn from, along with interviews of people making a difference in the world – whether that’s Al Gore high level or neighbourhood level like growing communal veges. I want it to be inspiring, educational and entertaining.

I would also like to expand the tools and online Training courses I offer so people can learn in their own time at low cost.

Third intention is to Coach high profile Celebrities so their insights flow on to their own followers. That way I get to help as many people in the world as I can, albeit sometimes indirectly.

Q: Who is your typical customer – what are they looking for?

A: Currently my typical Coaching customer is an Executive or Business Owner – they tend to be in Creative work like Media, Advertising, Events, Hospitality, Design etc. They may be stuck, trying to figure how to get their business/ career up to the next level or across to something more suited to what they want. Other times they come to me because they are overworked, stressed out, burnt out and want to find how to keep a premium performance standard while getting their life back.

What inevitably happens is the problems they come to me for coaching on is just the tip of the iceberg and all areas of life get a makeover during the process. I love to over-deliver. That makes a great day’s work in my eyes.

See Kitegirl interviewed by Louise Vansleve on the Law of Attraction and the Dream Job Startup on Vimeo here.


Does this stuff really work?

Yes! Here’s some great real life examples.

Matt in Sydney Australia

  • Matt was feeling stuck in his work. We did a one to one coaching session to get clearer on what it is he was wanting. He didn’t have the money to do a whole series of coaching so I showed him how to keep moulding that idea.Four months later he was in a job that blew his mind. It was better than he could have imagined.On LinkedIn he wrote “If you’re lucky enough to work with her, you’ll find the word “fail” is vehemently absent from Annabelle’s Drumm’s vocabulary. She won’t even say it! This career/life coach is a powerful force of real world positivity… What a fantastic opportunity it is to work with such an empathetic and intelligent person to define a goal-based strategy in my life. Thank you Annabelle.”

Kelly in Texas USA

  • Kelly considered himself an average looking Actor with not a lot of star potential. When I first spoke to him he seemed pretty down and lacking in confidence.Being the USA we did his coaching via Skype video. During the session the dream came out of one day being in a major Acting role. I’d never seen him act but we continued our work on making that dream role feel more real.Six months later he was crowing about landing his first big time role in a major television production. He said the process I had started was what made it happen.

Scott in Sydney Australia

  • Scott was an IT technician and had been out of work for over 4 years and was averaging about 100 job interviews each year. In desperation his wife came to me and asked if I could help. Again, a limited budget running the household on one slim income meant he couldn’t do the complete coaching series but we got together and worked on opening his mind to the possibilities.An incredible one month later he was into a contract with great money pouring in. His wife told me one month after that, he was offered a full time role he completely adores.

Francine in Sydney Australia

  • Francine was stuck in an executive role she no longer had enthusiasm for. She’d been looking for a new job for a while and felt despondent about ever finding that dream job. We got together and as I questioned her I could see she really didn’t know what she wanted.We worked a clearer image of the job even though it didn’t have a job title.Within 2 months, the perfect job was offered to her. She said she didn’t even go searching for it. She was personally recommended and once she started the job, she realised is was better than she’d ever imagined. It took her into a completely different industry. One she’d not thought of before.

John in Sydney Australia

  • Back in July Annabelle met with a Teacher from a Technical Institute. Over a coffee conversation his vision of how many people he could teach expanded dramatically and he started to work with Annabelle on the idea of a TV series for local and international niche networks. Here we are, in September, a mere 2 months later and he is in negotiation with a production company on making his DREAM a REALITY.

The list of success stories goes on.
