About Bev


Over the years I had attended many personal development and business seminars and was often asked the question: ‘What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?’ My silent answer – I was too insecure to share this with anyone else – was always the same: ‘I would be a professional speaker and trainer.’

Lacking confidence and knowledge of the process involved in establishing such a business, plus finding endless excuses, meant this dream was put in the too-hard basket for too long. However as I approached my 50th birthday I shared my vision with friends and was surprised to find they also held dreams within them, yet had procrastinated for many and varied reasons as well.

As a result, I made a decision in my early 50s to begin my speaking and training business from scratch, a difficult and challenging process but one that has been so fulfilling and rewarding, as I am now living the life of my choosing. I now enjoy every new and exciting day.


Through sharing this vision with my ‘age peers’ I was introduced to wonderfully interesting women who too have begun living their dream after the age of 50, and this in turn fueled a desire in me to encourage others to step up to the plate.

These books are written for the woman who holds onto a precious dream but may be unsure of how to turn it into reality, or who may have faced obstacles or made excuses over the years.

It is also for the woman who is unsettled or has a stirring within, knowing there is ‘more to life than this’, but lacks clarity and certainty.
