I am a mum of three beautiful children, Sofia 20, Phoebe 17 and Javi 12.  I am married to my soul mate, Jaime, and I am very fortunate to be able to live between Spain and the United Kingdom.

A defining moment in my life happened in 1996.  I was shy, lacking in confidence, had no belief in myself, and I was unhappy in my work. I felt a strong desire to change my circumstances, but didn’t know where to start.

From an early age, I was very shy, I would never speak up in class at school, and when I left education and embarked on my working life, my shyness was still hindering me.

I didn’t enjoy my work because I was constantly in fear of doing something wrong!  My confidence was at an all time low and I began to wonder how long I would have to carry on feeling like this.

It all started to change for me when I was introduced to self development through a network marketing business that I had joined. I started to gain confidence bit by bit and I began to believe in myself.

I didn’t realise that there was such a vast supply of information that I could access to help me work on myself.  I started to read, listen and study successful people.

My life is now unrecognisable.  I have achieved success in many different areas and achieved many of my dreams and ambitions. One of the things I never ever saw myself doing was public speaking.  However, I discovered that it would be the ultimate test of my confidence and hence I set it as a goal and in 2005 I spoke on stage at the National Indoor Arena in front of 5000 conference delegates!

I now receive massive satisfaction from helping others who are suffering from shyness, social anxiety or lack of self esteem like I once did.  This I do through my books, my blog and newsletter, and most recently I have created the Success Formula for Shy Entrepreneursa complete blueprint for achieving success regardless of your shyness. This course is available online.

If you’d like to attend one of my live one-day ‘Success Formula For Shy People‘ events, then leave your details below and I will let you know when the next date is available…..
