Ciao, I’m Francesca!

After 22 years of happy corporate life, the last 16 in the legal & corporate secretarial sector, in 2017 I qualified as a life coach and jumped ship, swapping my successful career for exploring freedom: find out what it means to me and how to achieve more of it!

Outcome? I discovered a few tips to living a more fulfilling and abundant life, and I want to share these with you through my coaching, writing and speaking.

As a passionate people-person, addicted to gratitude and positivity, I naturally look for ways of creating happiness within and around me, and spreading positive vibes.

I also love an adventure, most recently I solo-travelled Europe for a whole year in a campervan. For more on this and other journeys, see my Timeline below.
