About Matt & Christine
Matt was the classic academic high achiever (with a sideline in DJing and all night raves) getting straight As and studying English at Oxford, where things didn’t go to plan and he left with a painfully secured 2.2.
In spite of fascinating work in senior marketing and innovation roles across media, telecoms and latterly social impact for a long time he was haunted by a sense of not being good enough and a persistent feeling he was somehow under-achieving and ought to be somewhere better or different like his imagined peers or more successful self!
It took Matt until his late 30s to shake the notion there was somewhere else he needed to get to in order to feel successful, and gained a new freedom in finding work that balanced purpose, income and lifestyle. When this was no longer satisfying enough he started his own business sharing what he’s still very much learning with others on this journey.
Christine was the polar opposite of Matt, a challenging pupil that after GCSEs was ‘politely’ asked not to come back to school. She didn’t go to university, but had the natural grit and confidence to make her way through roles as varied as accounting, adult education, and wellbeing
Having felt there was something missing because she didn’t have the pieces of paper that said she was a bonafide professional, she travelled the world doing courses, looking for the next certificate that would make her feel expert enough.
It took a deep insight into the fundamental misunderstandings that had been driving this quest before Christine finally realised that she actually does have everything she needs already, and can just focus on doing the work that’s important to her now. Helping others along the way to take less conventional paths to their own success.
