I am a wife, mother and pet owner. I have managed my own successful business for many years. My purpose is to guide others in living lives beyond convention.


I do that through business coaching with online programs and one to one coaching and my book "Grand Plan Shattered? How to turn your life around after a crisis". I am adept at getting to the root of a persons issues and then directing them in ways to resolve challenges and find their true directions and passions.

My own journey has been my greatest teacher. Raised by an emotionally and intellectually abusive father, I went on to make amazingly poor life decisions, each time learning lessons (slowly but surely), the hard way.
Strangely that has been a huge blessing in my later years, as I have the ability to understand and relate on a deep level across broad aspects of life.

I held management positions in Retail Leasing in the ‘80’s, with LJ Hooker International, relocating to a position managing engineering proposals on the LADS Project jointly run by the Department of Defence and BHP Engineering, having been selected by KPMG executive assessment, highlighting intellect and innovation as highly useful skills and being described as a data junkie and a multipotentialite.

In the ‘90’s I worked for the Department of Education as a Bursar, and then The Mintaro OCGT Power Plant.

For the past 20 years I have been running the family business, a rural support service for farmers. I am one of only a few women in Australia who are actively involved in the industry.

Additionally, dabbling in many small businesses since a young age, always succeeding to certain levels but left feeling that much of the male centric training did not fit the way women operate, I was seeking better ways to achieve goals.

In recent years, chronic illness forced me to reset my life goals and directions.

Finding Sharon Jurd and her business offerings has opened new doors and exciting directions as a Coach and the Covid situation has stretched me to offer more training both about and via online services.

I look forward to working with people who want change and are prepared to stretch their comfort zones.
