By age 22, Janet had graduated with a BA in Communications, majoring in Psychology, become a punk rock model, Dolly covergirl, movie actress, soapie star, restaurant owner, radio DJ and Australia’s youngest ever copywriter to win a Lion at Cannes. As co-founder of Oddfellows Ad agency, she went onto become the most controversial woman in advertising until, seeking a seachange, she and her family moved to north Queensland where they created a multi-million dollar waterfront property development. At 48, she had it all, except the one thing she’d spent her entire life chasing: the deep contentment that comes from knowing your true calling. It was a near death experience that provided the breakthrough she was looking for. Instead of seeing the proverbial light or hearing a choir of angels, the voice that came to her simply stated: “Janet, you’ve let everyone down.” In that second she knew precisely what it meant. What she thought was selfless sacrifice in looking after her family and chain of businesses was in fact selfishness. She had denied herself and the world her great gift as a teacher. Janet would spend the next 9 years immersing herself in Personal Development, gaining certification in NLP, Blair Singer’s Train the Trainer, Making the Stage, Master Facilitator, Ultimate Personal Development Program and Accelerated Learning and Master of Self Expression with Larry Gilman. A lifetime of studying human nature and her rollercoaster of successes and failures became the basis for her breakthrough workshops. As Janet says, “I’ve spent 40 years figuring out my place on the planet and if I can empower others to do the same and save them a decade or two in the process, I’ve done my job.”
