CREATING A PASSION-FILLED CAREER YOU LOVE with Success Coach HOLLY MACCUE
Holly Maccue is a Career and Personal Success coach for women professionals who feel that they are ticking all the boxes in their careers, but can’t shake that niggling feeling that ‘there must be more than this’ and don’t know what on earth to do about it! She’s is one passionate, stylist and driven entrepreneur who also carries a sweet disposition and she was an absolutely joy to photograph! I’m excited to share what inspired Holly below;
WHAT IS YOUR STORY? WHAT IT IT YOU DO? I help my clients to get crystal clear clarity over their career next steps, build the confidence to create positive changes (whether these are smaller shifts or bigger transitions) and unlock their most courageous self to design their next career move on their terms.
My whole career has been in marketing and brand building working on multi-million dollar brand portfolios in fast-paced environments. In my earlier years in the industry I got caught up in the swirl and ended up burned out and seriously ill, having completely lost sight of what was important to me and what success even meant. I know what it’s like to be doing everything ‘right’ but to still feel unhappy. It wasn’t until I learned the 7 simple steps to designing your career success that I was able to align my work to all of my passions in a sustainable way.
Today I combine my experience in the corporate world with accreditations in coaching and NLP to help women identify their personal version of success, and kick-start a more purposeful and fulfilling career direction as a result.
WHAT’S YOUR MISSION? My mission is to empower other women with the strategies to design a life and career that truly lights them up, to put themselves and their passions first and show them how everyone around us benefits when they do.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU DAILY? I am inspired by the simple pleasures in life; a beautiful sky, a sunset, a gorgeous flower, unsolicited acts of kindness; time with family and friends, as well as connecting with the amazing women in my community striving to achieve more for themselves. I am an inspirational quote obsessive and I have thousands of post-its all over the place with these on!
HOW DO YOU USE THIS INSPIRATION TO CREATE WONDER AND JOY IN YOUR LIFE? I love to savour these moments; to remind myself that the bigger things in life are actually made up of the little things, if we only take the time to recognise them. The power of a simple quote can be so incredibly far-reaching; I love to have a positive impact on others by sharing anything and everything that helps me, in the hope it can help others too.
IF YOU COULD SAY ONE THING TO YOUR 16 YEAR OLD SELF WHAT WOULD IT BE? Just stop; slow down and take a look around. You’re doing just fine. You don’t need to have the rest of your life figured out just yet!! Who cares what anyone else is doing? They want different things to you. Be curious, explore, and focus on asking the right questions rather than needing all the right answers, right now.
WHAT HAVE THESE PORTRAITS GIVEN TO YOU AND YOUR BIZ? A way to share my personality online, and bring my personal brand to life. They help me to inject my ‘self’ behind my business.
HOW DO YOU WISH TO INSPIRE GREATNESS IN THIS WORLD? When we are working within our passion areas we are more energised, productive and fulfilled, yet so many of us stay stuck in work that doesn’t light us up because we are afraid of putting ourselves out there and getting it wrong. By sharing my personal story and what helped me move from burn out to breakthrough, I hope to give other women the confidence to speak up and show up in their careers and realise that the only version of success that matters is their own.
