Hi, I’m Anita… It was in August 2003 when I received one of the biggest wake up calls of my life when I was working in a corporate career.

If I had carried on the way I was, then I would never have any chance to make it to old age.

It was a year later, I experienced a vision so strong, a vision of being the proud owner of my own beauty salon. But I was working in pharmacy? I knew nothing about setting up a business or being a beauty therapist.

I was a shy, introverted, ordinary girl, but I had a big dream!

With much procrastination, I finally took action to study at college for my new qualifications whilst still working full time in a corporate career.

It was several years later after I qualified that I finally took the leap of faith to start my own business part time!

After further bereavements and tragedies, it was then that I decided enough was enough! It was time to come completely out of my comfort zone forever.

I slept so well that night, having made the bold, brave decision to create a better life for the future.

It wasn’t easy, taking the leap into the uncertain world of self employment, I had fears and doubts, I wasn’t good enough to make it a success.

“You’re a fool to think you could ever be a success, stay in your safe job!”
These were the words I kept hearing in my head. But my heart was telling me different.

“You can do this.” My heart was saying to me.

I put in the hard work necessary to make it a success! I started to believe in myself!

Then one day in 2018, I made the brave, bold decision to leave my corporate career behind for good.

That one small step with very hard work and determination, I went on to become a national-multi-gold-award-winning beauty therapist and massage therapist to the stars!

If I hadn’t of made the decision to change my life and back it with belief and action, I would still be stuck in my corporate career today waiting for my life to change.

When the global pandemic closed my business down temporarily, it changed everything.

The pandemic led me to meet a stranger online that then went onto becoming my friend and mentor.

It is because of this chance encounter that you are now on my website finding out about my story.

The story of how a shy, introverted girl overcame bereavements, obstacles and tragedies to become no ordinary beauty therapist.

I have written my first book to inspire women who lack self-belief and introverted people on how to improve their mindset and confidence to move out of their comfort zone.

So that you don’t have to feel stuck where you are, you can achieve anything you set your mind to if you believe it is possible and back it with action!

I am Anita, ‘No Ordinary Girl’
