You're only one choice away from having it all.
Being financially secure.
Starting a new business.
Saying no more often.
Ditching toxic relationships.
(Sounds like bullshit, I should know)
I'm Dr Katherine Iscoe.
Don't let the multiple degrees and polished pictures fool you. My journey to where I am today was far from farting unicorns and rainbows.
- I was bankrupt by 23 years old for $250,000
- I've failed too many relationships to count
- I was medicated for severe depression
- Disordered eating controlled every waking hour
- I was the master of hiding my double life
"I thought ending my life was the only way out."
And then my concealer smashed.
After another sleepless night, I woke up to try and 'fix' the dark circles under my eyes (evidence of my continued life failures: emotional eating, calling in 'sick', cancelling plans last minute...) with a newly purchased bottle of expensive concealer.
It dropped and smashed on my bathroom floor. "F&*K this" was my first though. My second thought was to go back to bed and hide.
That's when it hit me. Life is like a choose your own adventure book.
Continue to complain.
I could take the easy road and continue to bitch, moan and complain about all the things that were going wrong in my life and blame others for my lack of success and happiness and my past choices.
Use the energy to change.
I could learn to do things differently...
My life = my responsibiliTy.
(Yep, that's it.)
From that point onwards, everything changed.
My relationships strengthened. I grew my business and brand. I had more time off. I slept better. I stressed less.
Did you know the word confidence comes from Latin roots >>> fidere which means 'to trust'?
When is the last time you TRUSTED YOURSELF enough to:
Speak up when it matters most?
Say enough is enough?
Take a risk for a big reward?
It's worked for me, so will it work for you?
(Good question young grasshopper).
Does this sound like you?
- 1You know you need to change.
- 2You know WHY you need to change.
- 3But you don't know HOW to change.
I'm no magician, but I do know my shit.
Truth is, my successes are the result of a darn lot of hard work overcoming a debilitating lack of confidence. I've learned how to change my life for the better, and now it's time to share my knowledge with people just like you. People who know that the clock is ticking to this precious thing we call life.
Today, I am co-founder of a global Health Technology company called MyFiziq Limited (ASX:MYQ), and director of my personal Dr Katherine brand and have all the credentials you’d expect to help you on this journey.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Health Sciences (summa cum laude… which means crazy high marks), a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology and Health Sciences, a Doctorate in Exercise Physiology and Biotechnology and (yep… one more) a Post-Graduate Certificate in Counselling. I truly enjoy being a supergeek, and am a proud recipient of multiple awards, scholarships and bursaries along the way in my pursuit of academic excellence.
For the past several years, I’ve lived and breathed mentoring in self-esteem and confidence and often appear in the media to discuss these topics, including Studio 10, Channel 9 and the ABC (plus a few cheeky features in Cosmopolitan, Mama Mia and Take 5).
I’m told time and again that the reason people relate to me, and the reason they make such big changes in their lives, is because I’ve walked the walk. My life long experiences with low self-esteem and body image issues caused me not only decades of unhappiness but severe depression to the point of attempting suicide, and I have one helluva hangover from that time in my life … including permanent health problems and severe digestive disorders.
It’s my personal knowledge of how dark, dangerous and insidious this problem can be that drives me to develop and teach effective, evidence-based solutions to change people’s lives.
I know the demons you’re facing. I’ve looked them in the eye, and now, I want to help you beat them too.
P.S. If you want to know all my geeky details and check out my CV, head on over to my Linkedin (and say hello while you're at it!). You can also learn more about my speaking experience here or check out my media appearances to see me in action talking about all things confidence.
Time doesn't stop until you're ready to change.
