You Can Do It (Carrie Wallis)

  • Episode #75

For best-selling author and coach Carrie Wallis, making it is about being in charge of her own destiny. Despite experiencing unexpected challenges, she exemplifies persistence and courage. And she reminds us that we can all chart our own course.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. 

Carrie Wallis is the founder of  Enlighten U Solutions. She is a bestselling author, coach and speaker who is passionate about helping other service-based entrepreneurs succeed.

“I know all too well from losing my husband at a young age that we don’t have that long on this earth, and we don’t actually know how long we’re going to have. So what’s the point of spending that time trapped in a world or a job that you don’t like?”

Carrie Wallis

Author of the best-seller From Strangers to Clients and her signature client attraction system of the same name, Carrie Wallis also runs the confidence-building program “Shine From Within”. She is regularly asked to speak and her programs have been endorsed by the Australian Counselling Association, the International Coaching Federation, and the School of Volunteer Management in Australia.

Carrie works with professionals lacking confidence and a tendency to self-sabotage. Also, small business owners in the help professions: coaches, therapists, and healers. She works with newbies, just starting out for whom marketing is a dirty word as well as those established ready to grow and scale.

She is proud to have overcome many setbacks, not least of which was the death of her husband leaving her a single mum of two young children. It was this event that caused a major turnaround in her coaching practice, turning it from an enjoyable ‘hobby-income’ since 2000, into a serious, consistently profitable practice from 2009 to the present day.

When not serving her clients, you will find her sipping a glass of fine wine with her beloved family or out walking in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia.
