hey friend! I’m Bids, nice to bloody meet you!

Let’s start with the standard way of introductions of ‘what I do’. I’m a Goals, Growth and Fulfilment Coach and business owner of Goal Diggers NZ. My very own biz that I built from the ground up alongside it’s sister business and clothing brand GDNZ THE LABEL.

As proud as I am of what I’ve achieved, going from a professional career in teaching to a business owner and coach, I am so much more than what I do. My ‘work’ isn’t solely my identity. Just like your job title, career or business isn’t yours! Neither is your age, how much money you’ve got in the bank, your qualifications or your relationship status.

This is who I am…

I am a coach, educator, teacher, student, curious questioner and universal being.

I am a catalyst for change.

I am releasing what no longer serves me to live at the full potential of who I am.

I am obsessed with mother nature, #naturegasms are life.

I am compassionate, curious and connected.

I am a human being.

I am motivated to empower others to awaken to their full potential.

I am truly, unapologetically, openly myself. Because there is no-one else I would rather be.

I challenge you when you next meet someone to ask them who they are or what they love, instead of what they do which is pretty much saying, hey mate how do you make money?

I believe everything is there for us to learn from. It’s about the mindset you approach it with. I purposefully choose ‘what is this teaching me’ over ‘why me?’ every single time. It doesn’t mean that hard times are any less hard but it means that I can take what I need from it and then pass these learnings onto others. By living a life with positive energy, I invite positive energy back to me.
