So what does ‘Live Untamed and Unafraid’ really mean and why would you want do it?
Living and Leading Untamed and Unafraid is my ethos. Simply put, I believe it is the recipe for living a great life. One which is rich and full… where you get to be yourself and achieve your dreams. A life where you have real freedom and power. The meaning I outline below is my interpretation of what it means to ‘live untamed and unafraid’. I’d love to hear yours so please add a comment below and share what it means for you. (more…)
Standing out and showing the world who you really are is easier said than done. We all have an in built desire both to be unique and special, and conversely to also fit in and belong. They are both innate, and opposing, human needs. Standing out requires us to risk rejection (more…)
For me, one of the best parts of the work I do, is getting to see my clients really transform and make huge shifts in their lives! When it really starts to click and I can see the Untamed and Unafraid really start to come alive in them! I feel so fortunate to do work that I love and I get moved and inspired by my clients every week!
Here’s some feedback I received on my Live Untamed and Unafraid VIP Coaching Intensive a couple of weeks back that it’s my true pleasure to be able to share with you. Valerie is amazing!
I highly recommend this programme – it’s totally changed my life!
I signed up to work with Kyle because I was at a crossroads in my life. I had been running my own business for nearly 9 years but my heart wasn’t in it anymore. There was something else calling me but I didn’t know what it was. I also wanted to leave the place that I’d been living in for over 20 years. But every time I thought about making any changes, I felt overwhelmed by doubt, confusion and fear. When Kyle told me about the intensive VIP 'Live Untamed and Unafraid' coaching programme, I realised that it was exactly what I needed to help me kickstart the changes that I wanted to make in my life.
The first few weeks of coaching were intense but extremely valuable. Right from the start, we worked together to get clarity around key questions such as: where I am now, who I am, what do I really want to create, and what is holding me back. For the first time, I saw what was calling me and what I yearned for – some of it was very surprising!
Then I went on the personal retreat and this is where the magic really began! I had an underlying desire to shake things up - and did things get shaken up! I ended up climbing a mountain in knee deep snow on my own, having never done any mountaineering before. It challenged me physically, mentally and emotionally but by the end of the retreat, I saw myself in a totally different way. I realised that I was not the person I thought I was, and I was capable of far more than I had ever imagined!
I can safely say it was a life changing experience, because within a few days of my return, I made the decision to close one of my businesses. A decision I had been debating for a VERY long time. All the fear and doubt had gone – I just knew it was the right thing to do. Despite being a successful business, it no longer fitted with who I am today and where I want to be taking my life and work.
Since then there have been massive shifts in how I see myself, the world and the unknown. I’ve historically come from a place of safety and security, where I needed to know everything before I could take a step. Now I have this deep desire to leave behind my sanctuary in London and go out and explore the world. My first step is to go travelling to the US and Europe on my own.
I couldn’t have done this without Kyle. He has supported me when things have got tough, but he’s also been very good at challenging me, and giving me a shove when I’ve got stuck. I’ve had the space to explore the doubts, fears and beliefs that are holding me back. And I now have the tools and resources that I need to move through those blocks and take the necessary action to start creating the lifestyle I want.
I would highly recommend this programme to anyone who is feeling stuck or at a crossroads in their life; who knows there’s something else calling them but isn’t sure what it is; and who needs someone to help them get the clarity and motivation to make the changes to transform their life.
I’m only half way through the programme but it’s already been life changing for me. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
Yes, you know it! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t. We’re all guilty of putting things off from time to time (myself included). So what does it really matter? (more…)
Thanksgiving may primarily be an American holiday, but it’s one I genuinely believe we should all embrace. It’s not only a sentiment that holds true value for us a individuals and communities, but Science now shows just how much celebrating Thanksgiving and practising gratitude can truly elevate our levels of happiness… (more…)
Earlier today I posted my weekly inspirational quote on the Know No Limits Blog and this week I chose “To live an extraordinary life, you must resist an ordinary approach…” by Frank McKinney. I hadn’t initially made the connection but as I sit down to write the article it fits just perfectly.
One person who truly epitomises that quote, and the live untamed and unafraid ethos, is Adam Shepard. Adam recently dropped me a line and sent me a copy of his latest book to review. He’s definitely ‘resisted an ordinary approach’ – right from the age of 19 when he set of with $25 in his pocket (more…)
One of the practices that my clients find most valuable is setting a theme for the year, or part of the year? A bit like the Chinese have the ‘Year of the Dragon’, the ‘Year of the Tiger’ etc. I find it helps them get focused on where they are in their journey, what they want to achieve in the year ahead, and helps them stay motivated and committed. So what’s your theme for the year ahead? If you don’t already have one then take a few moments to reflect and get curious as to what it might be… (more…)
I’m writing this post from Geneva airport having just delivered 3 days leadership training in the French Alps for the Ski Club of Great Britain. It’s snowed for 3 days straight up in Tignes where the training course is taking place and I’m feeling quite reflective after a stunning bus ride back from the mountain past mountain streams, and snow covered trees and snowy French villages. It reminds me that despite challenging economics times and much turmoil in the world there is still much beauty and wonder to be thankful for. (more…)

These are the words from the birthday card sent to me by my awesome Mother last week. They capture the spirit of ‘live untamed and unafraid’ so I wanted to share them here:
