Hi there! I am Jules Kelly, Your Human Compass.
I want to give you a little bit of background on me so that you are able to see what has brought me to this point in speaking with you.
I was born into a relatively ordinary family in Germany. English Dad, German Mum, and moved to the UK at around age 3 or 4 when I grew up as the middle child of 3. We were taught that you worked hard for your achievements; we were taught manners and we were taught to be kind to people.
I had no desire to go to University so went to work at Manchester Airport after my A Levels at 17. I learnt more about people than most have already forgotten, in the 10 years that I was there.
I then went on to work in an internal sales roles and was promoted and relocated within 9 months. I achieved big and earned my stripes.
I then went on to work in and create 7 figure + organisations throughout my career, and have also enjoyed working with and creating small “start ups”. Each role and period of my life brought their own learning experiences.
I’ve had the flash cars, handbags, disposable income…you name it, I had it! It’s “stuff” and ultimately to me, relatively unimportant.
Throughout all of the business successes and accolades, my greatest achievements are my two incredible children.
I have an extremely supportive husband, who has been there to prop me up as I worked, worked and worked some more.
In 2006 I had a close shave with an articulated lorry. The realisation that I was milliseconds from me being squished was the final trigger to my body saying ENOUGH!
I started to become sick. All of the time. I was in a lot of pain in a different part of my body every day. I felt like a complete hypochondriac…”Why me? What is wrong with me?”
I had crippling head pain, face pain, hip and leg pain. Some days I could hardly walk or get out of bed. Some days a slept around the clock.
I was diagnosed with a condition called Fibromyalgia. A chronic pain and fatigue condition. No cure, no treatment other than opiate pain medication. I took a shopping list of opiates for around 10 years. They did very little to take away the pain.
Fibromyalgia became a part of the fibre of me. My kids grew up with a sick mother that was either working or sleeping, and it was no way to live. It was an existence.
Then the final straw
My husband Marcus started a beautiful business in 2009. We had invested all of our money and all of ourselves into it, and it was on an upward turn after years of blood sweat and determination.
In 2016 we made a business decision that lead us to where we are now. Free of the business and the stresses that came with that. Life lessons about the type of people we want to surround ourselves with and those that we don’t. Confident that our values of kindness and honesty will continue to always be right, and that the truth will always come out and Karma will do her thing.
To reach this point, we endured four long years of real unbridled stress that lead me to breakdown and burnout.
The stress between summer of 2017 and June 2018 was literally OFF THE SCALE. One day whilst having a cuppa with my Mum in her back garden, I felt my body shutting down. I honestly thought that I was checking out. My body had literally had it!
I slept for two days following this episode and when I woke and realised I wasn’t dead, I decided that this was the day that I had to take back control of my body and my life.
I decided that I had 2 choices. Carry on existing and slowly fade away or I do something about it.
I chose the latter
I embarked on my own Life Audit
I decided that the medication was not helping me at all. I decided to learn about how my body worked so that I could support it rather than checmially batter it.
I found an alternative route and I detoxed from my pharmaceutical pain medication in 3-4 months and replaced them all with natural solutions, essential oils and holistic therapies and modalities.
I found the right therapists for me and worked on my trauma. I started to really allow myself to see who I was and who I wanted to be.
I journeyed back to Jules pre 3 years of age. I relinquished self-limiting beliefs that I learnt had never served me. I retrained. I found my life purpose, which I have always really known is to help others.
I had a clear vision and plan of what I wanted in my life and I am living it! My future self, here and now!
I have met lots of new people from all walks of life. As part of my work, I have written and published a best selling book, The Fading Woman® and I have a wonderful Facebook group of incredible women, The Wake Up Wise Up & Flourish with Jules Kelly Tribe.
Back to the Mothership is my Exclusive Annual Membership which I absolutely adore.
My work as, Jules Kelly, Your Human Compass, allows me to live the life that I want whilst fulfilling my purpose, which is helping women to live their best lives with balance and wellness at the heart of it all. Being able to provide women with a holistic approach to their life means that I can help them with everything, including their business.
I created the Fading Woman® Life Audit and Radical Self Care Programme because I am so passionate that women should take ownership of their body and their WHOLE wellbeing, which means shining the spotlight on their life.
It is an absolute privilige to do the work that I do and see women literally transform before my eyes. I am so grateful.
If you are ready to make changes to the way in which you are living your life, I am here for you. I am ready to support and hold you on your journey.
