Hi! I’m Avalyn!
Welcome to this space where I share ideas, thoughts and tips on living a fun, flexible and fulfilling life from all angles.
Whether you’re looking for ideas on being more effective at work and at home, personal leadership, or career transitions… this is the place for you.
My nickname is The Career Adventurist.
“Adventurism” is the defiance or disregard of accepted standards of behaviour, while Urban Dictionary calls an Adventurist someone who would “climb mountains, jump out of planes and dive below the surface of the water.”
Except for the diving bit, that’s definitely me.
I’ve spent 20 years in an unconventional career path after leaving my days as a lawyer behind. Without having to apply for a job, I’ve held global and regional roles in public relations, executive search, branding, financial services, luxury goods, skincare and timber genetics. I've also been a television and stage actress, writer, TV show host, and copywriter.
I transitioned into a portfolio career - coaching, consulting startups, raising three kids, and lots of travelling - in 2014. I made tons of mistakes in the process and my purpose is to work with curious, passionate people like you to create your portfolio career path that will give you fun, flexibility and fulfilment!
