For the ladies who lead
WHAT IS HELM?
Firstly I can tell you what it is not …
It is not your standard mentoring.
Essentially I am an Educator sharing as much experience and knowledge as you’re willing to absorb. I am your biggest cheerleader. Think of me as your sounding board because we all know when you’re at the Helm, trying to steer yourself in the right direction, it can be a very lonely place.
I don’t pretend to know it all or that I am doing it perfectly myself, in fact there are many moments throughout my journey that make me cringe. I do however promise that if I know the answer I will not only tell you but I will teach you, and if I don’t know the answer I will find someone who does.
So what can I do for you? Here it is in an easy to understand list format …
I can help you create boundaries and the systems to support them.
I can help you manage your time better.
I can help alleviate decision fatigue, overwhelm and imposter syndrome.
I can educate you in growing your own business or side hustle.
I can help you get clear on the bigger picture.
And I can find experts in the areas you want to improve.
I believe that I can help women feel a whole new level of support.
WHO AM I?
I’m Vanessa, mum of three little ladies, Frances who is 6, Violet (aka Winnie) who is 4 and Florence who is 1. I’ve been married to my real life super hero Kris for 9 years.
I grew up in Charleville in Western Queensland, started my hairdressing career in Brisbane in the early 2000’s, and settled in Toowoomba, QLD in 2010 where I started my business journey with Profile Hair Design and yes I am actually that old, 38 to be exact.
Over the last 11 years I have grown my business from 2 to 11 employees, and endeavoured to flip the ‘industry standard’ of hairdressing employment and leadership on its head. I have strived to create as much work/life balance for my employees as possible. As well as expanding education for these ladies beyond the confines of Hairdressing and into the world of boundaries and self care.
I have created Helm because I believe that I can help women find a whole new level of support, and I want to share my knowledge to help empower you.
From someone who threw themselves into business without really knowing what to do, finding Vanessa from Helm has literally been (business) life saving!
Vanessa came to our 1:1 session with check lists (my fave!) to go over with me my strengths and where I could use a little more guidance. The check lists where explained in great detail and Vanessa made sure to answer all my questions no matter how big or small.
I left the session with crystal clear knowledge on my next steps to take and a plan on how to achieve my number goals for the year to come.
I think it took me 2 weeks after this session to try and book another.
Vanessa is the lady you want if you’re needing a mentor who knows her stuff and a personal cheerleader. My wins are her wins, too!
