535. Her Healing Reshaped Her Work and Her Life
Jayne’s company was succeeding, but she wasn’t happy. Then, a health crisis nearly killed her. “I’d reached the limit of medical knowledge, but it didn’t have to be the end of my story.” Her healing would reshape her approach to work and life.

How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“My parents were both working people in a small coastal town in England. Mom was the ‘tea lady’ who pushed a tea cart in offices. She started her own business when I was 12 or 13, a really small cafe. Although she didn’t know anything about business, she took it step-by-step and was successful. She ended up with two cafes and one restaurant in our hometown. At 16, I found myself running three of her businesses when she decided to go to the east on holiday with my dad. So, I got a very practical business education early on in life!”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Misdiagnosed and improperly treated for 11 months after a child birth-related accident, she became bedridden and bound to a wheelchair. “When I was told I was going to die, I knew I had to turn my back on mainstream medicine! Just because I’d reached the limit of their knowledge didn’t mean I had to be the end of my story. I went on my own spiritual healing journey to come back to life.” Along the way, she became much more intentional about reshaping her way of living and working. Today she brings an entirely new approach to her work with clients.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“When I went back to work after healing, it was like walking into the Living Dead. I realized there was no energy in corporate life, which I hadn’t noticed before. I realized I had to bring these worlds together—fusing a purpose-driven consciousness of healing energy and spirituality with the more left brain, logical, data-driven, strategic model of business growth. It felt like a calling to me.”
