Life can feel a little flat. And at some point you’re going to sit down and think:

Georgia started baby clothes business after a career change

Georgia OReilly case study - started baby clothes business after career change - www.lucystanyerlifecoach.com

Georgia, from Kent, decided to start a business – called Petit Apparel – after coaching with me helped her work through her options for a career change.

Petit Apparel sells baby clothes from around the world, in particular the cute baby and toddler clothes from Spain and France.

She had a world of possibilities in front of her but didn’t know which direction to take. 

Exploring personal and professional values

Through our coaching sessions Georgia explored her personal and professional values, her interests and experience, how she wants to work and where.
