I have been an entrepreneur, a managing partner, and a successful investor. I moved continents to follow my heart. Today, I am a leadership high performance coach and trusted advisor- I fight to bring into reality the dreams and life my clients desire and deserve.
The road to get here was far from smooth.
I was expected to have all the answers. I had to weigh up risk/reward and sometimes I got it wrong.
I left a billion-dollar corporation and moved across the world for love. I went from the corporate ladder in Ireland, to seasonal part-time bartender in New York City. When the season ended, I was laid off. Two years later, I was the managing partner of one of the largest hospitality groups in NYC. I was 29.
I have overcome the challenges of staff members stealing and leaders being drunk on the job, people not showing up. I balanced the books and kept us in business when most would have failed. I systemized a way for me to do the same amount of work that took six people in my sister locations.
I have taken part in multi-million dollar raises and bet on the wrong startup. Three times.
I have made poor decisions in my personal life. I made even worse decisions in my professional life and I used to live with the guilt of that. I now know that we don't have to live with guilt.
I wish I had the Ciaran of today back when I was struggling as a leader. He would help me emotionally, and mentally, as both an advisor and a coach, and he would have helped me feel fulfillment and be the leader who builds cultures to be proud of.
People want to work with me because of my calmness under pressure, my ability to hear them, my direct, no B.S. nature, and my desire to demand the best from them so they stretch further when they want to play it safe. And when they stumble, they have someone to help them stay in the fight.
If I sound like someone you want in your corner, we should talk.
What do you want to create in your life? Perhaps one call with me is all it will take.
