Founder of Leap to Lead
Take the leap and lead your life where you want to be!
When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them “I coach women who want more from life”.
But what I really want to say is “I work through the issues that all women, especially mothers, experience supporting them to create and live their best life”.
And what I really, really, really want to say is “I change the lives of women so that they can live their life with purpose, fulfilment and amazing connection with their family”.
I’m Emily Rogers, and as you’ve probably already guessed, I love working with my clients! I love asking the questions that cause them to pause and rethink what they’ve always assumed. I love seeing them grow in themselves, become more confident and at the same time better parents.
People come to me when they feel exhausted by their lives, frustrated by the humdrum of errands, and desperate for something more. Together we rediscover, get clarity and create a path they can take to finally have more.
Whether it’s supporting women who have given up their career to support their family and now the kids are a little older and more independent, they find themselves wondering ‘is this it?’
Or supporting women who have returned to work, but are now wondering if there isn’t more they ought to be doing. As we get older, our purpose changes and sometimes the career we started doesn’t fit where we are now or where we want to go.
My professional career was in Human Resources working with some big companies in many different industries until we moved to Asia and I could no longer ‘work’. I often joke and say I now provide HR support to mums who frankly need it more.
Yes, I’ve won awards. But what I’m most proud of is the change I see in my clients. My clients call it the “Emily Effect”! I have a unique perspective that allows me to cut through the fog and the crap that life throws at us, and reign in on the true heart of an issue.
I regularly serve over 2,000 people with advice on life, parenting, the wins and the challenges, as well as how to have more. I have been featured in podcasts such as the high ranking >>Tandem Nomads<<, as well as online summits and guest articles.
At heart, I’m a country girl. I was raised in rural South Australia and there is nothing I love more than being outdoors, walking and exploring. If I’m catching up with friends, it’s a walk together around the hills or the park. Even in the mega cities of this world, I would find space to walk and explore.
When hubby is working late, which can be quite often in the hotel industry… I love tinkering on my piano (although I am having to learn to sight read music again).
In Chongqing I learned Chinese Ink Painting with a group of friends, and now my daughters and I can often be found sitting in the sunshine with our paints, listening to music and chatting about anything that crosses their minds (you know what tweens are like!?!).
The weekends will always involve someone coming over for a drink or a bite to eat, that’s when we’re not running the girls to hockey or tennis or dance practice!
Life hasn’t always been easy, there’s been loads of stumbling blocks along the way, but I have become an expert in finding silver linings and just moving on. I am living proof that it’s never too late to make your dreams real. Work hard. Play hard. Don’t worry about what other people think. Just focus on you, and be the best you can be.
