I’d had my share of health issues over the years and was very interested in all things Complementary.
I had been a Radiation therapist in a major public hospital for nearly 15 years when I discovered Kinesiology and knew I had to be one.
What a fabulous journey it has been.
Gaining the skills was a challenge logistically (family-wise) but easy and fun.
Turning it into a business that fitted in with my lifestyle was another.
I remember going to a national Kinesiology conference as a student and met many people who, up until then, were only names in books. It was awesome. What was more awesome was when one of these high-profile practitioners came up to me and told me she ‘saw big things for me in the future’.
Back then I didn’t believe her.
Luckily, early in my journey (July 2007), I stumbled across Ms Margz one day as I was Googling ‘Complementary Health Marketing’.
I felt a connection to her right on that home page and signed up for her 90 Day Challenge – what did I have to lose? It was free.
This was completely new to me as I’d never had to consider anything like this in my previous position. It was, and still is, a wonderful process to work through with lots of practical actions to help you on your way.
Margz ‘gave me permission’ to start up my business in my lounge room with her famous line ‘It doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect’.
After about 6 months of this, my husband gave up his beloved study so I could have a dedicated treatment room. Ahh.
In 2009 I then met the gorgeous Ms Margz in person at Adelaide’s ‘‘Courageous Speaking’. This was a real turning point, as my darkest hour became my connection to people all over the world.
Overcoming Overwhelm was born.
I’m now doing consults both in person and over the phone, getting requests for Blog articles from many corners of the country, have been asked my opinion on a variety of topics. A simple email from a colleague for a guided meditation turned into a call to Margz to ‘make it happen’.
Margz also gave me the confidence to run a 4 week tele-seminar series for beginner practitioners which was well received.
I managed to do all of this whilst still walking my children to and from school each day, attend assemblies and excursion, manage my daughter’s soccer team and generally keep the house running smoothly.

One day I will have a bustling clinic, but for me right now, what I’ve created is perfect.
I have the family/ work balance sussed.
I work the work around the life, not try to do it the other way around.
Ms Margz has been a valuable supporter (she celebrates your successes and picks you up to try again if things don’t go so well), she’s a veritable font of knowledge who shares freely. Why reinvent the wheel if someone else has already done it?
She’s the ‘grain of sand in your oyster’ necessary for the formation of that precious pearl.
She doesn’t expect you to do everything she tells you – I certainly don’t, but I do value her opinion and will always ask for it.
I have found a number of valuable friends and connections on the ‘Wellbeing Winners Forum’ run by Margz.
I consider Ms Margz to be not only a mentor but a friend and I am so glad I found her.
Now I do believe what others saw in me all those years ago – ‘There are big things out there for me!’
