Have you ever reached a crossroads in your life and not been sure which choice to make?
- Had two different job opportunities
- A decision to make about a relationship
- Considered moving abroad for your work (or that relationship)
- Wanted to explore working for a different company
Whatever that choice point was for you….
Sometimes it can be hard to know…
“What is the RIGHT choice?”
Whilst I’m a big believer in checking in with yourself first…I do believe that getting feedback can be valuable too.
Sometimes you just can’t see your own blind spots and don’t have that perspective needed to make a good choice.
And yet it’s important to ask for feedback the right way that doesn’t cloud your judgment even further or leave you feeling more confused….
Which is why this week I’m talking about the 3 step approach to getting valuable feedback that truly serves you in your decision-making process.
In the video, I also have a request for your feedback and advice on my own business direction…can you help me out?
***Request: If you have a few minutes I’d be super grateful if you could provide your advice OVER HERE.) Sending massive thanks in advance!***
If that’s you, watch this week’s video on how to achieve soul aligned goals without burning out.

When you are navigating a big decision…
Whether that be in your:
- Whether to start a business
- In your relationships or
- Your health
I do believe that there is a time and a place to get feedback…
Feedback on whether the reality of your decision (that feels good in your body) is really going to match up with the reality and the intention that you have.
Very often as women making big choices, we don’t necessarily know whether we’re really going in the right direction.
And asking people who’ve already trodden that path or are in that industry or know it well can give valuable insights and pointers on what to think about before making that decision.
That’s what I really want to talk about in this week’s episode.
***Spoiler alert*** I have a request for your feedback at the end of this video so keep watching or if you’re reading, I’d love your advice on something over HERE. I truly value your opinion!
When you’re looking to get feedback (in your career, business, relationship or health) there are three things I recommend in order to get valuable feedback that truly serves you.
Thing #1: Check in with what feels like the right choice by you.
I’m a big believer that you’ve got to do what feels in alignment for you: your heart, soul and value system + integrity. Make sure the decision you’re considering ticks this box before moving onto…
Thing #2: Seek out feedback from the right people
You want to make sure that you’re getting feedback by somebody who has:
- a really good perspective or understanding
- been there and done
- Or been through what you’re going through
So that you can understand the information from a real person before making an informed choice.
Side note: It’s very important not to give your power away and just say “What do you think I should do?”
You’ve got to get very specific on what questions you have about this choice that feels right to you…
Thing #3: Ask the questions that will give you the information you need in order to make a heart, soul and a grounded + reality-based decision
What are the questions that you really want the answers to?
If you had these answers, then you’d be able to know whether it’s the right choice by you.
Let me give you an example….
Let’s say that you’re a working mum and you’re working a corporate job. You want to spend time with your kids and you’re thinking of going part-time in your role.
Let’s just say the opportunity to do that is there and you’re thinking through the implications of this decision…
i.e. the cut in salary, whether you can do both your work role and mum role well, the benefits you’d forgo plus whatever else is on your heart and mind….because let’s be honest there are a lot of different considerations that you’ve got on your plate.
With this decision in heart and mind, you would go and get feedback from somebody who has either considered that choice point for themselves or has actually done that.
Then you’d ask them specific questions….
- How was that transition for you?
- What surprised you when you made that choice that I might not be thinking of?
- How did you navigate that discussion with your husband or your partner?
Ask all the questions you have on your heart and mind.
Does that make sense?
I want to hear from you in the comments below.
- What is it that you’re navigating at the moment?
- What specific feedback are you looking for?
Leave a comment for me below.
Personally, I would be grateful if I could get your feedback on what it is that you’re struggling with.
At this choice point in my own business, I really want to make sure that I’m creating quality content programs and offerings that are really going to support you to step into more of yourself and to pursue the work that you’re really here to do and become the woman that you really are.
And that’s where you come in!
Can I ask for your advice and opinion on where to focus?
Your advice will go such a long way to inform my decisions in my own business! Thank you 🙂
Leave a comment from below.
- Let me know where you’re struggling with your choice point

Sending you so much love and wishing you all the best on this choice point that you are at!
P.S. I’d love your advice and opinions on where to focus my efforts in my business so that I can better support you on your unique journey. You can share your thoughts and advice for me OVER HERE.
