Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
To Show up during times of change is challenging and requires commitment, determination and passion.
More than ever before executive women in the resource sector now have the ability and resources to show up and lead change by gaining traction to advance their careers and positioning in this heavily male dominated industry.
Currently, females make up less than 15% of the country’s mining workforce
One in 5 people will suffer from a stress related health challenge in their lifetime.
Workers in the resources industry are at a higher risk, with common challenges including spending long periods of time away from home, working long hours, financial stress, shift rosters and social isolation having an impact on performance and wellbeing.
A recent ‘Wellbeing and Lifestyle Survey’ found of 1100 workers across 10 remote construction, open cut and underground mining sites in Western Australia and South Australia, found about 30 per cent reported high distress levels. This is three times the national average.

I have been working with Joan to support me in levelling up my health and wellbeing. Being a female business owner, speaking, traveling, running workshops and coaching easily depletes energy stores quickly so I really wanted to work with someone who understands the type of business I was running, the pressure of high performance and who understands me. We have just started and I am already noticing a shift in my energy and focus. I'm pleasantly surprised that I have got through my first week of no sugar and caffeine! Her holistic and balanced approach has also helped me to identify some areas in my business that I want to "show up" more in and put strategies in place to have the energy do that. I'm so grateful to have her in my corner and can highly recommend her to other business owners, leaders and especially women trying to juggle it all!
