"It took for Jo Kathleen Marie to hit rock bottom before discovering her purpose...
It was after seeing the quote “pain can be your greatest teacher if you allow it to be,” that Jo began to turn her life around.
“My first step to recovery was making myself a tea and sitting outside on the step."
While her road to recovery hasn’t been an easy one, Jo says it’s one that has now put her on the right path to help others.
During my career in the Music Industry, I noticed there was a major need for more self-care practices and solution-focus to build wellbeing.
I began to question: How can we build wellbeing? How can we experience a thriving and flourishing life?
Like music genres, this is my style, along with a genuine passion to support my clients to unlock their potential and experience a thriving life as their best selves.
Hey I'm Jo, Personal Development Coach, Artist, Creative Entrepreneur, Music Mentor and the founder of Create Your Life Academy.
I'm on a mission to creatively optimise mental and social wellbeing in the world and empower people to step into their full potential. My mission is to LEARN, INSPIRE, EMPOWER, CREATE and COLLABORATE. I love what I do and working with others in reaching their goals.
I use methods of traditional coaching, neurolinguistic programming and positive psychology to support people in reaching their full potential to get the results they seek. These resources have been accumulated via education, training, mentorship and plenty of hands on experience as coach (Anxiety Free Living), business owner and career as a music mentor / artist manager. I'm excited to support people to bridge the gap from where they are, to where they want to be.
I started my career in the Music Industry for 15+ years (performance, music mentoring, project development and business management). The highs were GREAT. The freedom of running my own business, winning The Fender Award and the Global Songwriters Contest Award (2017). However, the lows were being enmeshed in the harsh reality of mental illness. To paint a picture, national statistics are 3.2 million people, and 50% of all creatives, in Australia yearly.
What began as an extensive research project to create a wellbeing program to navigate my way to better health, would one day be the inspiration behind
Create Your Life Academy.
Create Your Life Academy exists for those who want to take action to optimise their mental wellbeing, understand how to cultivate Emotional Intelligence to better communicate with others and live life to the fullest. In the process, they gain a deeper understanding of themselves, build resilience, core confidence and step into their full potential to become the person they aspire to be!
