This is me…
When you go inwards and start to uncover
who you really are, and consciously design your life and work from there,
I’m Liz Watt.
I’m not a coach or a mentor. I’m not your guru. I don’t have all the answers or magic formulas. YOU DO.
I work with people who are done with being told what to do and who want to design a life and do work in a way that works for them.
I am here to inspire you to uncover and reconnect with who YOU really are and start to live and work more consciously from there.
I followed all the rules. I did exactly what they told me to do.
I studied hard, got good grades, got a degree in architecture, got a good job, and built a big, bold successful career in architecture and project management.
I was constantly working, constantly tired, constantly just getting by and trying to get ahead – and waiting for the promised rewards to come. And waiting, and waiting, and waiting…
It didn’t feel good. Life was struggle.
I became obsessed with figuring out money and business as the promised path to financial and personal freedom.
I invested in personal development and wealth creation – books and courses and mentor and coaches and masterminds and seminars.
I worked on my self, trying to “fix” all the things that coaches and mentors and gurus told me needed fixing.
I attempted multiple income strategies – the share market, eBay, real estate, online businesses, consulting businesses, the same job with different companies, different jobs with the same company.
I left multiple jobs, multiple times, to start a business or financial endeavour that worked for a while, and then didn’t.
Focussing on making the money wasn’t the answer.
I went down the spiritual, new-age path… I worked through my “checklists” of gratitude, and affirmations and vision boards and meditations, and sure, some things changed, but nothing dramatic. Every thing still felt like hard work.
I burned out and broke my self… I created a wakeup call to start to live and work very differently. It forced me to stop trying to find answers in the same place, and to choose (and demand) to design a life that worked for me. No compromises.
I went in search of truth… I wanted more than futile “six-figure-strategies” and new-age, mass-produced spirituality. I wanted to know what was the point of all this, what was really happening in the world, and my life, and why, and how it all connects together.
I needed to know the bigger picture… beyond business and money and the physical world.
I went back to the core of what I had loved in my original profession – design – and started looking at the themes of my life and the work I had done.
And I realised that of all the projects that we undertake, the greatest of all, is our life.
Most of us live it unconsciously, without clear thought, or vision, or design.
We jump into tactics and quick fixes, without stepping back and looking at the big picture, and developing a clear strategy and road map that works for us.
At the core of all my work so far, as I see it today, is the process of design.
Where I once felt lost and scattered and unable to commit to one thing, I now see clearer than ever, why my life was (and is) the way it is, why I feel the way I feel, and the life work that I have been creating all along. It all makes sense.
Where I was once following every body else’s lead, I have now stepped back to create a clear strategy for my own life and work, that finally, finally works for me, is diverse and unconventional, and feels good.
I’m here to help you design your life and work in a way that works for you.
It comes down to:
- Understanding all the parts of who you are, and what you need, and clarifying your current desires.
- Determining what might work best for you, for now, and finding confidence to take action with purpose and meaning.
- Learning to trust your self, and ensure all parts of you are headed in the same direction.
When you have clarity and alignment, it changes every thing.
I don’t have it all sorted yet. I’m not going to pretend I do. Does any body?
I’ve just learned a heck of lot of stuff (the hard way) and instead of waiting until I’ve got all the answers, which might not even happen this lifetime, I’ve decided to start sharing the best pieces as I know it.
You’ve landed here for a reason. Use it, try it on, take what works for you and let go of the rest.
It’s the only way you’re really going to find your own truth.
If you want to get to know your self better,
and start to align your business and your life with who you really are…
