Sarah’s (very brief) story! I am a ‘rags to riches’, ‘anything is possible’ and the ‘just get off your behind and make it happen’ educational entrepreneur.When I first started in business in the UK at 19 years old, I had zero business training, $17 in my bank account and loved ones telling me I was stupid. Hailing from a gypsy background where female entrepreneurship and education was frowned upon; my dreams had been crushed and ridiculed. I started an education business anyway where my competition was the Federal Government and two multi-million dollar global enterprises.But my passion could move planets. So I did it anyway - and I succeeded. In 2012, my circumstances dramatically changed and I washed up on the shores of Western Australia; no money, friends, phone, laptop or bed to sleep in. Eighteen months later, I’m recognised as a leader in my industry. I have 23 people working for me and had turned down a $3 million offer for my business. My education services business ‘MainTraining’ has now been in operation for over a decade. Teaching thousands (including prisoners, long term unemployed, schools, colleges, universities, defence forces, remote communities, governments, corporate professionals, international franchises and entrepreneurs) in over 100 countries. I now speak on stages internationally about education, edupreneurship and business, seeing bookings up to two years in advance.I’ve gone from desperately handing out my email address on scraps of stolen paper, to having over 40,000 followers on my email database and social media combined. Those ‘normal’ people who’ve achieved their goals through hard work and passion inspire me. Having now done the same, I want to make sure no dream goes unrealised. My goal is to show 10,000+ aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals by 2020, that no matter your circumstances, who you are or where your starting point is, you CAN make anything happen if you try hard enough and put the right strategies into play.

My journey begun from my time in high school where like many of us we never received any career guidance or direction, and as a result felt like I had no purpose and "Job Hopped" through my 20's experiencing many negative emotions and limiting beliefs. I thought to myself one day "I don't want other going through the horrible feelings and emotions I went through" so I completed a Diploma of Counselling majoring in careers and as they say "The Rest Is History".Connect with Paul:Website-www.skyesthelimitcareercounselling.comEmail- admin@skyesthelimitcareercounselling.comFacebook Group- Page-
