The Journey from Victim To Victress Entrepreneur : Victress Blog

Victim to Victress

Welcome to my Blog, which is a celebration of women’s triumph over adversity and an exploration of what it takes to transform from Victim to Victress Entrepreneur.

I’m not writing this Blog, because I have all of the answers. I’m writing it, because I am seeking the answers and through my weekly Podcast, Victress FM, I am starting to uncover some interesting clues. 

Each week, on Victress FM, I interview inspiring Female Entrepreneurs, who have triumphed over adversity, to create incredible success, happiness and freedom in their lives.

So, each week, through the pages of this blog, I plan to explore and share my findings with you.

It is my hope that the inspiring stories shared by my Podcast Guests, will give hope to any woman, battling adversity, that we all have the power to choose how we respond to life’s challenges and to decide if we want to be the victim or victress of our own lives.

Firstly, let me tell you that ‘I get you.’ I have been where you are and whist I may not have stood in your exact shoes, or experienced the exact same challenges that you have faced, I have overcome my own fair share of adversity and battled on to tell the tale.

I have suffered pregnancy loss, bereavement, divorce, single-parenthood and a brain haemorrhage in 2016, which threatened my life and robbed me of my 'super-powers', leaving me with an invisible disability that many people don’t see or understand. 

Writing this blog and hosting the Victress FM Podcast, is a huge challenge for me.  The easy option would be to surrender to my health issues and give up.  In fact, life would be far easier and trust me, I have considered it on many occassions, but I choose not to be the victim of my circumstances, but instead the victress.  

Surviving a Brain Haemorrhage is a miracle granted to few, so I count my blessings and live each day with renewed thanks and gratitude. I have been given a second chance and I don’t want to waste it and I urge the same of you!  

I know that you have been through tough times, but that you’re determined to rise above the adversity and come out victorious.

I know you have often felt victimised by life’s challenges, but you would never want these to define or constrain you.  But, sometimes you feel confused and overwhelmed, not knowing which way to turn.

I strongly believe that each adversity teaches us valuable life-lessons, which shape us into the person we are supposed to become.

You may not know it yet, but you have a unique gift and talent, a special message that you are meant to share with the world.  It is hidden in your adversity and I want to help you find it.

I know that, in your present reality you feel trapped and unfullfilled.  You dream of breaking free to a create life of meaning and purpose.

You want to become the best version of yourself and make a difference in the world; to create more time, money and freedom to spend making memories with the people that you love.

You feel that there is meant to be ‘more’ for you, but you’re not sure what 'more' is or how to find it. 

Or maybe, you have a quiet internal whisper, trying to guide you towards your dream, which is constantly being silenced by your inner critic?

Perhaps you feel confused and overwhelmed? Uncertain of the direction you should be taking in your life? Feeling like a passenger in life, rather than the driver.

If you resonate with any of this, you are not alone.  I have felt these exact same feelings, at different stages of my life, as have many of the guests on my Victress FM Podcast.  But they have turned their lives around and so can we!

I have interviewed inspiring Female Entrepreneurs, who have battled bereavement, pregnancy loss, divorce, single-parenthood, domestic abuse, rape, alcoholism, drug abuse, poor health, depression, anxiety, attempted suicide, poor health and disability, but who have chosen to come out victorious.

Throughout this Blog and my Victress FM Podcast, I will introduce you to women, who have battled cancer, disability, unemployment and bankruptcy, to turn everything around and create the lives of their dreams, by design.

If one thing is clear, if these women can transform from Victim to Victress Entrepreneur, so can we.

We will hear from inspiring women who went from rock bottom to creating their own successful, purpose driven, six and seven figure businesses, doing what they love and making a difference in the world.
