Who is Claire Baker and what is This Is Lifeblood?
Claire is a certified coach and mentor, writer and creative and is currently calling Perth home. She is the author of one of the best eBook's I have read called She is Radiant and is up there as one of my favourite bloggers, she is so down to earth and real. You feel as though she is your friend and she is speaking directly to you. She is a delight and I was stoked when she agreed to be part of my Radiant + Inspiring series.
Get cossy, grab a cuppa and enjoy what Claire has to say...
+ How did you get to where you are today?
I'm multi-passionate and so my journey reflects that; I've studied visual arts and design, business and nutrition, I've travelled and worked in jobs I've hated and ones I've loved. I've experimented. I've figured out what I like to do and what I don't. Where my strengths are and where they're not. And every step along the way has helped me to get where I am today.
+ What motivates you each and every day?
Well, LIFE. Doing what I love. People. Passion. Purpose.
+ What quote do you live by at the moment?
'Trust the process' - ALWAYS.
+ What has been your biggest struggle on your journey?
To shed the scales and the obsession over my weight, what I look like, what others think of me...My poor self esteem and self worth held me back for so long. But it's been a gift, because I understand where my clients are struggling in this area and I've been able to write about it in my eBook She Is Radiant.
+ What food can you not live without?
+ Do you have a daily routine? If so, what is it?
Not strictly, but my day always involves movement and meditation in the mornings, a big nourishing breakfast and coaching and writing (and admin - let's be honest) throughout the day. I love to wind down with my man, a walk with the pup and a good book (or movie) in bed.
+ What would you tell your 14 year old self?
Be kind to yourself, you glorious creature. But keep having fun!
+ How do you want to be remembered?
As a girl who loved life, and life loved her back.
Thank you muchly Claire, it was a privilege to have you as part of my Radiant + Inspiring series.
