We love our readers and we love watching them achieve their dreams.
Which is why we’re now featuring a reader each week!
This week we shine the spotlight on YMag regular reader, Glenyce Ewing.
You love YMag because?
I love YMag because YMag is my go-to mag when I’m feeling like I need a little inspirational encouragement. The mag I go to when my self-doubt kicks in. My
Your favourite part of YMag is?
Such a tough question. I would have to say the front cover. When I pick up my YMag I know it’s time to make a cuppa and have my ‘Me Time’.
What inspires you?
My biggest inspiration is seeing anyone that has been down and out on their forward thinking (I was going to write luck but I don’t feel it is luck) and then get back on their feet and power forward regardless of all the speed humps along the way. People backing themselves.
You step outside and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
Let’s be real here. My first phone call would be to hubby to tell him he doesn’t have to do his job anymore. There would be a purchase of a very fine French Champagne. There would be a financial advisor employed. There would also be a plane flight to Switzerland and I would be flying first class.
This has always been on my bucket list.
One of my biggest dreams has always been to pay fully for a Camp Quality Camp (kids with cancer camp held yearly). I have had a son diagnosed with childhood cancer and I saw how important these camps are not just to those diagnosed, but their siblings as well. I used to be a volunteer at these camps for 6 years before my son was diagnosed and it is the knowledge I learned and the contacts I made through these camps that my son is walking around today.
I am already supporting various charities and all these would receive a little more financial help then what I can currently afford. I know that sounds a bit cliché but I have always been a giver.
Family, of course, they would be supported.
If you could go back five years, what advice would you give your younger self?
Let go of your self-doubt. In five years time Glenyce, you are going to look back and
Invest in a business mentor early but make sure it is someone who fully understands your goals. This is a very good investment and really listen to what they have to say and put the steps they suggest, in place.
There is always going to be someone that will try and bring you down but always rise above it and stay true to your core values.
What is the most courageous thing you have ever done?
The most courageous thing I have ever done has to be becoming a mother. There is a lot I could put here but it is also the most rewarding thing I have ever done.
Secondly, it would be starting a business that is all about alternative healing. Not the easiest business to get up off the ground and have running smoothly but continuously showing up, learning, trusting and backing yourself everyday. Now that, that’s courageous.
What personal development do you do regularly?
My personal development for me comes down to my cognitive needs. It is my desire for knowledge. I constantly crave more knowledge so I can fine tune myself even more. Enrol in workshops when time allows.
What activity nourishes your soul?
This is the easiest question to answer. MEDITATION!
I love this as it allows me to switch off my business and everyday brain and to silently go within and work on myself. I always feel lighter in my body and soul and it always gives me clarity. Meditation daily lets me allow.
It’s as simple as that. Just allow.
