1. Tell us your story:
One year ago I had a 10-year-long eating disorder, was in and out of abusive or sabotaged relationships, had a sex/swinging addiction, was a smoker and binge drinker. Although on the outside many people thought I had a very exciting and happy lifestyle, on the inside there was a lot of shame and feelings of worthlessness and my confidence on the outside was just a facade. After going through a spiritual awakening a year ago almost to this day I started my healing and self-love journey. I am now an Intuitive Life Coach & Motivational Speaker, Angel Therapist/Psychic, Healer, Charity Event Organiser & Author. Founder of Love Angels Global - www.facebook.com/LoveAngelsGlobal and the charity Kieron D'Netto Spinal Injury Support & Healing Kieron to Walk Again Project.
2. How did you identify the goal/s you wanted to achieve?
I had always known since I entered the workforce that I wanted to be some sort of Mentor/Coach/Speaker. I've always had a passion for helping people and being on stage! Often I felt it was in business that I would help people as I had worked in so many different businesses and helped them grow. But when I went through my own personal transformation I knew that my purpose was to help other women awaken. I call it 'Awakening the Beautiful Woman Within'. When I get the feedback from my clients that I have inspired them, transformed their lives and touched their hearts that makes me feel so happy and so alive and I know I am living my purpose and achieving my goals as well as helping them achieve theirs!
3. How did you work towards achieving your goal – did you have a plan and a deadline to achieve your goals?
I have to say planning and time management had never been a strong point for me. I was always so up in the air because I am extremely creative and driven and kept taking more and more opportunities on. After taking on a business mentor I really got clear on where I was going and how I was going to achieve it. We focused on keeping myself grounded to make sure I could plan out my time effectively and only take on the opportunities that were in my best interests. Within in a matter of weeks I had set myself up as 'EJ Love Angel' and brought my story, skills and expertise together so that I could reach out and help more people.

4. What was the biggest challenge you encountered along the way?
Distractions and saying 'No' to people. I am a real softie and giver and always willing to help others!
5. What inspires you and keeps you going when you encounter obstacles?
I see every obstacle is an opportunity! I reassess what my priorities are and understand that everything happens for a reason. There is a lesson that I can grown from and use as a positive story to help others...Sometimes I do need to take some time out for me and do an hour planning session.
6. What advice do you have for anyone wanting to achieve a goal?
Firstly make sure it aligns with who you are and your purpose. You have to find out what your 'why' is and you will know it when it makes you cry! When I got mine I was jumping up and down and crying tears of joy. When you feel this strongly about something you will do everything you can to make it happen. I say to people it's like that feeling when you fall in love and you just want to do everything you can to be with that person - treat your goal the same way and you will achieve it! When you do achieve it make sure you celebrate it!!
7. What are the next goals you hope to achieve?
My next step is to write a best-selling book about my journey and transformation. I'll shortly be launching online programs and workshops/retreats and have many other business women who want to partner with me. I feel very blessed to be where I am today... it all starts with self-love and it is absolutely possible for everyone!
