with Jo Morrison
Decision, decisions; a career, a business, or somewhere in-between?
At mid-career, often 40 and beyond, we crave more freedom and flexibility in our professional lives because we have so many competing personal responsibilities; family, friends, kids, aging parents and more.
But because of all of that, because we've seen and experienced life in its richness, we prioritise differently and we notice as the world changes.
This can lead to what I call a 'secret spark' of an idea. Something you crave to explore, but how can you, when you spent your 20's and 30's building the security and income of a corporate career?
When you are short on time to get started, you need the right help, right now.
I know what it's like to have limited people to talk to while trying to work out what's next for you at work or in your business, so I help you imagine what's possible, then teach you strategies to create your ideal work-life.
I'm a Personal Coach, so we discuss your journey so far and how I can support you to take action for what's next!
By creating a personal vision, you will reconnect with your inner-self, with what you want now. With your Go Go Mojo Personal Action Plan to guide you, you will feel excited about what is next for you as a professional who has so much to offer the world.
The Business Stuff: I teach you what I learned from my successful corporate career, building a university-based startup business program from scratch, and developing my location-independent coaching practice.
Then I combine the law of attraction or manifestation, with practical business action.
The practical side comes from building incubate.org.au and leading corporate teams, but I believe what we think about, we create, so I weave in manifestation mindset strategies too.
These strategies support clients to feel good about change, and create their ideal professional life, whether that is with leadership coaching, changing jobs, moving from corporate to creating a business, or another plan we create from your personal 'secret spark' idea.
I'm curious, and have lots of ideas about creating freedom and flexibility within the corporate world.
In my business career I've trained across operations, communication, consulting, startups, innovation, education and coaching. I bring a unique view to your personal program.
The Corporate Stuff: I can help you bridge the gap between you, the board and the executive team.
Learn how to work better with your leader, board and executive teams. I've coached business innovation, created and built teams, managed tricky stakeholders, been a staff career coach and facilitated countless difficult conversations.
Leading Startup Businesses and Innovation.
I was Corporate Innovation Coach for RAC, (WA's biggest insurer) and Director of Innovation at incubate.org.au, the program supporting entrepreneurial students launching scaleable businesses at The University of Sydney.
At INCUBATE we developed workshops and programs that empowered 100+ startups. As the startups raised significant investment ($35 million and counting) they credited their rapid income and customer growth to the mentoring, coaching, and workshops they accessed through the program.
Talking at TEDxSydney
I was invited to speak about the startup ecosystem and INCUBATE on stage at TEDxSydney.
Working with Startup Founders
As an Executive Coach in the Galileo Investment Program, I prepare founders to become leaders by helping them to understand themselves, so they can become the leader their growing business needs.
Giving Back by Paying It Forward.
I have a business track record of success in the innovation and leadership coaching fields, but what matters to me is building our trust, connection and understanding that gets you results.

Go Go Mojo!
As I have consistently shaped my own big life experiences, I teach you how to get what you want. You will feel better; calmer, grounded and more peaceful.
Change is also fun! After 20 years in Sydney, I took a leap of faith, moved to Perth for love, and launched Go Go Mojo Coaching. Now I live in the beautiful Margaret River Region and I coach via Zoom to support my amazing clients around Australia, the UK and NZ.
Book in for an intro call and let's get started!
Q. What am I inspired to create in my business?
I love stories.
I've always pictured myself in the characters shoes as I read. I guess empathy is my natural state. These days I accept that I need to be mindful of what I watch and listen to. But my love of stories and my empathy serves me well as I listen to my clients.
I've always been a problem solver.
Coaching comes naturally to me, I empathise, problem solve, trouble shoot, come up with ideas and support people to support themselves.
Go Go Mojo is about what can happen when you're supported to hit 'go go!'
I love client conversations when they say out loud something they have barely admitted to themselves. Because then we can work out how to make change and get them what they really want.
I am inspired to be the best coach in my field, to be sought after by clients who are drawn to my combination of practicality, mindset and motivation, it makes a difference in their lives.
Q. What do you expect from yourself?
I expect to be ethical, honest and kind.
I have high expectations of myself and sometimes my support network has to remind me that 'done' can be good enough!
Family, friends and partners can only do so much.
It can get draining to be a support person for someone you love and it can negatively effect your relationship to put big expectations on family and friends to help you all the time. As your coach, I support you to keep moving forward, allowing you to share more of the fun stuff with your friends.

Get coached in your comfy clothes!
Most of my career or business coaching is done over Zoom, and video is optional. Voice-only allows people to be more honest and introspective as they are purely concentrating on our conversation, not distracted by video.
I don't often know clients socially and this sense of anonymity can help them open up.
Clients share information with me that they may not choose to share with family, colleagues or friends.
I strongly encourage them to share with a partner, but sometimes I am the first person they have talked to about the particular business, personal or career challenges they face.
I prepare thoroughly for career coaching sessions, so my clients get the most benefit out of the time we spend together. I want to help ambitious people achieve more.
Helping others is not about being perfect.
I think I am a better coach because I'm definitely not perfect! I face challenges, have to pick myself back up, reset and review regularly.
My expectations are high but my kindness is paramount; towards myself and to others. I try my best every day to utilise the self-care tips I share with my clients; that I am 'walking my talk.'
If you're ready to try the full set of coaching prep questions please get in touch and I'll happily send them to you.
