In this episode, I’m speaking with the wonderful Brenda Gabriel.
After being run off her bike in 2012, Brenda had an epiphany. Then a civil servant, she was shaken to her core and questioned whether she would have been happy with her obituary had her life ended that day. The answer to that question was a resounding ‘No’.
The opportunity for redundancy arose a short while later and at 8 months pregnant Brenda took a leap into the unknown. Discovering a flair for marketing and PR was a turing point and thus, Brenda Gabriel Biz Gamechanger was born. Honing her craft as publicist, copywriter, social media coach and blogger, Brenda, now a mum of three is on a mission to make her difference in the world by working with other disruptors to do the same.
During our conversation she talks about the expectation to be a ‘good girl’ when she was growing up and how this impacted on her up until very recently. I love the energy that Brenda brings to her work and she has definitely let go of her inner good girl to express her unbound, fierce, passionate self.

She has been writing professionally for 20+ years, as a journalist and a blogger, and is now writing a memoir, exploring her journey from 40 to 45 as she transformed her life, her work and her relationships and went from being a single, work-obsessed adrenaline-junky to a women who's in love, living by the sea and doing work that's aligned with her authentic self.
Katherine now helps other women heal their relationships with themselves and others and change their patterns so they can live authentic, wholehearted lives and find healthy, loving relationships.
I first met Katherine ten years ago when we were both on a personal development holiday in Greece. It seems that we were both right at the beginning of a huge journey of self-discovery at the time. Since then we’ve both left comfortable, secure jobs to start our own businesses. During our conversation I loved talking with Katherine about her decision to make the leap from her high-profile role and her ongoing battle with perfectionism.
