Hi, I'm Dr Yvette Ankrah MBE and I’m a recovering overachiever!
I spent years pushing my mind and body, ignoring both because I was achieving. Everything was a checklist and I was racing to fulfil dreams that were not even mine. I had learned some habits which at first, seemed to help and then became a problem I did not know how to fix. I launched businesses, became a wife and mother, achieved business awards and accolades and a PhD - but it all came at a cost. I had fibromyalgia, IBS, anxiety, chronic stress and had experienced burnout more than once.
My version of self-care was to head to a spa and then go straight back to the same old behaviour. It had to stop.
I made a decision to change and went on a journey to transform my life - it is an ongoing journey.
By changing my perspectives, habits, understanding my story and creating self-care plans, I am now pain and symptom-free.
I still have goals and ambitions, however, I no longer have the desire to burn out in the process.
I’m passionate about helping women who are busy pushing themselves to the brink, to find another way to achieve success without burning out. Helping high achieving women in business have success without burnout is my focus. Putting you at the centre is key. I want to help you be sustainably successful but keep your sanity through self-care, know your story and uncover who you really are, breakthrough barriers that hold you back and create a healthy and wealthy business.
I worked across several sectors before moving into coaching and mentoring and have over 20 years of experience in business development and marketing. I also wear an academic hat and love research!
Join me on a journey to transform your business and transform your life.
