Chloe Temple - Overcoming challenges at uni in the UK to helping spark change to be our true selves, Building POPP coaching business
Manage episode 318817028 series 3309365
Take flight into Chloe's journey - growing up in the UK in a small tight knit family, looking up to her parents with dad being a business owner and mum as marketing director for a large corporate. Chloe talks candidly about dealing with realisation that University was challenging and how ego and arrogance made Chloe choose economics.
Through preserving and hard work, things started to look up with Chloe starting her professional career in marketing at Sainsbury’s, one of the large retailers in the UK which after 5 years allowed Chloe to move to Australia to work for Coles, another large retailer in the country.
I ask Chloe about 3 important topics and we go deep into each. These being (1) mental health and Chloe’s own struggles with depression, (2) How Chloe created a new role for herself at Reckitt and built a team and (3) perhaps the biggest moment of them all, making the decision to leave a steady job she was good at to try her hand at creating the coaching business called POPP and how she made the transition.
An action oriented conversation which summarises Chloe well and a lot of insights for you the listener to apply to your life.
