WEEK 8 – THE 52 WEEK LOVE PROJECT

Welcome to Week 8 of  The 52 Week Love Project. The project designed to recognize 52 inspiring humans who are giving back to our community – whether in a small way or by creating a movement for change and inspiration. 

The project will showcase LOVE at it’s finest, share their stories – what they do and why they do it!  It’s an opportunity for us to find out what inspires them and what keeps them going when challenges or self-doubt assail them.

MEET: Tessa – The Creator of ‘Restart Your Life Retreats’

Her Motto:  

‘Winners are not people that never fail they are people who never quit’

‘I have worked very hard and never gave up. From going from broke to 6 figures. I am so passionate to help those that are living in emergency accommodation and need a fresh start.’

WHERE DID IT ALL BEGIN?

‘It began when I was 26 years old,  I was in a women’s refugee with my 3 children and I needed help!  I moved into emergency accommodation for approximately 12 months and during this time was receiving help and support.  I left my whole life behind as I knew it!  I was a bit of a reck. Eventually, I starting making progress.’

I was ashamed of my time spent in a women’s refugee and used to keep that part of my life hidden. Now, it’s my backstory and is my life driving force. It certainly wasn’t an overnight success.  Now I do what I do because I have lived it.’

WHAT DO YOU DO?

‘I take women away on retreats who have been abused and who are needing support and encouragement to move forward with their life. I help women to feel good about themselves and give them tools and support to achieve their goals.’

WHAT INSPIRED YOU?

‘My past experiences and now I have an amazing life. My children all turned out amazing and they are my inspiration.’

HOW DO YOU GET PAST SELF DOUBT?

‘When I was in the women’s refugee I got help and support that I needed. Since getting back on my feet I have invested in self development to help change my mindset and work on getting rid of negative self talk and self doubt.’

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHERS WHO WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE/CHANGE IN THE WORLD?

‘Find something you have a passion for or you are aligned with like. I work with abused women because I was abused and know what they are experiencing.’ This is My full story.

DO YOU HAVE A QUOTE OR EXPRESSION THAT YOU LIVE BY?

‘Winners are not people that never fail they are people who never quit’

‘I have worked very hard and never gave up. From going from broke to 6 figures. I am so passionate to help those that are living in emergency accommodation and need a fresh start and helping business women reach their 6 figure income goal.’

WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO?

I am a goal setting specialist I empower women in business to break free from procrastination and self-doubt and  follow through with their goals and take their business to the next level.

I also run Power Up women’s exclusive referral group, FREE monthly networking nights on the last Thursday of the month – can be viewed here . It is a FREE group and the women in the group also support each others business’s. Power Up runs an annual charity event to help fund the retreats for women from abuse.

I also sing in a rock band singing all the top female rock hits from artist like Pat Benatar, Divynils, Blondie and Alanis Morisette.
