I am Nelda Leach and I am Your Goalfriend®

For most of my working life, I had a successful Marketing and PR career within the Corporate and Tourism Industry. My life was full and busy with children, work, family, friends while also running a children’s ministry and part-time ventures to supplement my income. But at some point, I realised that I was doing so much for others and that something deep inside of me was missing and that success somehow kept on escaping me. I was not fulfilled and kept postponing my own dreams. Financial strain, marital challenges, and stress which caused health constraints at the time added unnecessary pressure to my life.

Whilst living from day to day, and losing everything I owned after my divorce years ago,  I came to the end of myself and had no idea how to  move forward.

Emotionally exhausted, I one night watched a movie called, “My Life Without Me starring Sarah Polley” halfway through the movie the main character who was diagnosed with a terminal illness and was given three months to live, she sat at a coffee shop table and wrote in her journal, “Things to do before I die” I will never forget those written words jumping into my face, as it was in that very moment that I realised the value of life and the importance of the choices we make, regardless of our circumstances. I suddenly felt the need to write down my own list. After all, no one can really say whether we  still have three months to live. Why wait until we are being confronted with a dreadful situation.

Longing to find my own purpose and turn my dreams into reality, I wrote down my own “Things-to-do-before-I-die” list.

But writing it down wasn’t enough. I needed to find a way forward, to plan and  to take action in order to achieve my own dreams and goals. I had to let go of things of the past.  I realised that I was not going to be able to do it all by myself and found myself a life coach and mentor. This was by far the best decision that I have ever made for myself. A whole new world of understanding myself opened up for me. I not only stepped into the world of Entrepreneurship but through the guidance of a life coach I was able to recognise my own strengths and weaknesses and was able to connect the dots in order to move forward with grace, confidence and success.
