Where it all began...

Pure Insight was founded in 2016, my side hustle offering coaching, training and keynote speaking. I always felt that there was so much more for me to achieve in my business. With lots of effort and help from my own business mentor, my focus shifted and my business started to grow and evolve.

I finally hit the cross road. I took the leap of faith, resigned from my corporate role and now focus all my attention to my own business. Rebranding to Tanya Camilleri was part of this process. Each day, activity, business proposal and coaching client helps me gain greater clarity in my business. Why I am here, what I have to offer and the difference I make to peoples lives. It is so rewarding.

The excitement that comes with running your own business full time is amazing. I love my clients, working with corporates and the wonderful people I get to network with along the way (I am such a Woo! If you are familiar with Clifton's Strength Finder, you'll totally know what I am talking about).

So, as you can see, I am still in my happy business bubble. I am a pretty positive person so I naturally see the positive in things - although this took some focus to make it a habit! Recently while preparing for our long overdue family holiday it hit me… the flood of emotions, I want to work in my business and this holiday is in the way. I don't want to take a break. I have so much to do and want to get so much done.

I needed to get my website finished, launched and out there. The stress poured in and then with a little perspective and a lot of deep breathing, the website got finished and I planned out the time to launch. I soon realised that I have to enjoy these moments, celebrate these milestones (just like my coaching clients - do as I say, not as I do). There will always be something to do and the cheeky challenge of working IN my business v. ON my business.

I was overwhelmed by the passion and dedication that I felt. Needless to say, I did the family holiday to Fiji, without the laptop (insert gasp!) but managed to smuggle in plenty of books, articles, a notebook and a small to do list. Most of which I ignored.

The break was exactly what I needed. Some important family time, reflection time of what I have achieved this year, some business planning for 2019, thinking about the new partnership that has been formed with another smart, driven, business superstar (soon to be announced, stay tuned!) and most of all time to stop, get grounded, have fun and celebrate life.

Signing off feeling grateful and excited,
