Show Notes

‘And I also know from being through all those things that emotions pass. And moments pass. And in business if you’re having a, ‘It’s not turning out how I expected’, ‘I work so hard and this is what’s happening’, or if you go into any victim mentality or any of that sort of stuff, it’s really great to be able to sit there and say, ‘Ok, this is just in the now moment, this isn’t a moment forever.’ And to be able to either sit in that yourself and say what do I have to do to get out of this feeling or to be able to coach others to understand that this isn’t for now, how do you get out if it? What do you need to implement to either change the emotion or change the outcome? Are things that come from going through all of those highs and lows in life in general.’  Cathy Spaulding

Cathy Spaulding lost her third child tragically and as you will hear in her story this horrendous experience taught her more about herself than she could have ever imagined. She also believes it was this significant emotional event that led her to working for a company where she could work from home and protect her family but also learn to love herself and heal wholeheartedly through the power of her sisterhood.

Cathy shares how she kept going in those early days because of the love of her other children. It was tragic circumstances, and she knew she would never be the same person ever again. She does not remember how long it took to pull herself out of this big black hole but there was one day she said to herself… ‘I will not be the sad mum who has lost her child to my other children.’

She shares her story around grief and that there is no right or wrong answer on how to process it. She compares the time of 1998 when she lost her baby to the modern day now and the different levels of support and acceptance for feeling ok to go down a self-love journey.

Cathy Spaulding is a Sunshine Coast based businesswoman, a proud mum and now GG (Glamorous Grandma), a loving wife and a loyal friend. She lives a busy, yet fulfilling life, directing an empowering well-known lingerie brand, Intimo, whose soul mission is to make women feel good, every day. Cathy is an expert bra fitting specialist, who understands the beautifully diverse range of body shapes, proportions, breast types, life stages and personal preferences of women.

Nowadays, she spends most of her time being a business mentor, mentoring and liaising with like-minded entrepreneurs all over Australia and New Zealand. When she is not working, you’ll find her spending time with her family and close friends, cruising around the waterways on her beloved boat, sipping red wine and indulging in good food.

Cathy believes that everything that does come into our life definitely puts us together and makes us the person we end up being.

She openly shares her lowest of low points and the highest of highs.

She is proud of herself for digging deep and building what has now done in her Intimo business. She knows it is all about aligning with your true values that helps to build success.

She says if you are ever not feeling the love for what you are doing to ask yourself these questions:

  1. Why are you doing it?
  2. Can you come back to you and ask your why?
  3. What is the end game you have in mind?
  4. And if it’s still important, then realign with that. And if it’s not then have the courage to say it just isn’t. And don’t be afraid to have a crack at something else.

And if you are finding it hard ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do you love it?
  2. Do you show up every day?
  3. Are you there with 100% commitment?

And if it’s not there you need to ask if you can find the love again or is it time for you to make a change?

Raising three children who she believes are true pillars of society is one of her proudest moments and now her two beautiful granddaughters have opened her heart even more.

She also knows the power of self-love is what helped her to value herself enough to find her most perfect husband. And she is proud of the fact she is a kind and caring woman who cares deeply for others.

Cathy’s definition of self-love is:

‘Having an acceptance of oneself. Kind words to yourself. Taking time for oneself without guilt or reasoning. Not accepting other’s behaviours that do not align with my values. And being strong enough to say no.’

Cathy shares how much she is loving being a grandparent. And the love she has for her two granddaughters is paramount. She is super excited to share her wisdom and importance of self-love to these precious beings.

Her favourite quotes are:

‘Be somebody who makes everyone feel like a somebody!’

‘The women who does not require validation from anyone is the most feared individual on the planet!’

‘Turn your wounds into wisdom.’
