“I am a high achiever and to do my best, I need to be enjoying what I’m doing.”

In this episode, we explore the incredible journey of Danielle Bartholomeusz, who transitioned from a 24-year career at the same firm to becoming self-employed and pursuing what lights her up.

Danielle shares her inspiring journey of breaking free from the familiar and defying family expectations to step into the unknown. Leaving university midway through her first year, she took a job with a financial services firm, where she stayed for over two decades. However, an inner calling for something greater led her to leap of faith and embark on a new career as a personal stylist with Intimo.

While working at the same company provided a sense of job security, life outside was far from smooth sailing. After a divorce and six failed pregnancies, Danille’s story highlights the power of resilience and determination, the importance of being open to alternatives, and the power of following your instincts.

As a happily married Mum of three kids, Danielle embraces the early days as an entrepreneur and enjoys every moment of flexibility and fulfillment it brings.

This beautiful conversation showcases that when you’re courageous to question the status quo, you open the doors to magic.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Breaking the mould to follow your instincts.
  • The resilience that’s required when life doesn’t go to plan.
  • How can setbacks be the catalyst for advocating for yourself?
  • The power of giving everything you’ve got before calling it quits.
  • Balancing the yin and yang when they start to clash.
  • How time and space can lead to finding the answer to “What else could I do?”
  • Believing in yourself even when entering the unknown.
  • How being part of a Women’s circle can be cathartic.
  • Questioning the status quo rather than being told what to do.
  • Accepting that self-doubt is part of the entrepreneurial journey and going with the flow.
