A noble purpose lies within every entrepreneur, and when this purpose is illuminated and expressed, many people are enabled to shine. It takes great courage to live a life of purpose, and shine.
Terese Mudgway – Founder, Mudgway Kinesiology and Coaching

With over 15 years in marketing and communications followed by 13 years as a Kinesiologist and life/business coach, Terese’s experiences will show ask provoking questions on what is the real reason for work, and if you understand that, then how can one truly have purpose? Does it have to be something significant?  So many people spend most of their lives ‘surviving’ life and living from their head.  We live in a world where knowledge is so revered and that exploring our own individual ‘soul’ truth and how that fits in the world is thought of as flakey. Does it have to be something significant?  Why do we sell out?  Giving up the judgements of what it should be and trusting the journey and where you are in it right now. Letting go and following the path of least resistance.
