Inspiration from our coaches on Women’s Day


As a celebration of International Women’s Day, we have compiled some pearls of inspiration from the Balance coaches and special guests.

“Success is not an accident.” Natalie Cook

“If you start off and get breakfast right, it does set you up on the right foot for the rest of the day,” Dr Joanna McMillian

“We have to cut ourselves some slack. I do stuff up, I do make mistakes, I am flawed, that’s just the way it is and then you can stop beating yourself up about it.”  Rebecca Gibney

“What do they tell you to do on a plane? Give yourself some oxygen first then low and behold you can give to your mum, your dad, your children.” Angela Hryniuk

“Good parenting comes in many shapes and sizes.  Children know when they are loved and cared for.”  Dr Kerryn Phelps

“We are dealing with so much insecurity in the modern world and we feel so much pressure.  But we don’t have to have a great job, three perfectly mannered children and have a perfect marriage.” Helen McCabe

“If you want conscious love, it’s not simple and if you end up deciding to leave a relationship you will leave in a loving way.” Sarah Maxwell

“Life isn’t won when everything is going well.  The real breeding ground is when there is conflict, that’s when you really win. “ Sarah Maxwell

“There is no health without mental health.” Professor Jane Fisher

The last word…
“The wonderful thing about getting older is you can get to the point where you can say no. Saying no is one of the hardest things we do.”  Deborah Hutton
