May King’s story: 
Moved to Oz in 2010 with her husband. They divorced in 2012 which lead to an immigration issue.
Final settlement came in 2016 – which lead to her to a place of depression and low self-esteem. In 2016 May King came back to the UK and had to rebuild her life and business.
This became an opportunity to become more strategic and more focussed on her business, her marketing and her business development. This lead to working with Google in 2017.
In Australia, May King had been a people pleaser, whereas coming back to the UK, she understood that she was going to have work really hard to change this to have more focus.
