Why you should trust your passion

“I trusted my passion” ~ Naomi Barton Client success story!


This year in the wake of Covid-19 anxiety I helped a young mother of two find her point of brilliance—her voice and her passion for telling stories. She decided to pursue her passion to become a professional, self-employed audiobook narrator.

I was so thrilled when she agreed to narrate my midlife career change book, Midlife Career Rescue: Employ Yourself It was such a fabulous experience for us both! Hopefully, the audio version will be live soon—as I write, I am waiting for the Audible backlog to clear.

I love, love, love helping my coaching clients find their point of brilliance and doing what I can to help share their passion-inspired career and business with others.

Below is my review for Naomi Barton Voice who narrated the audio version of —if you need an audiobook narrator…look no further.  Contact Naomi for more information about her audiobook narration and production services:

“First of all, thanks so much the work you did on this audiobook. I was so thrilled with it. Right from the first hearing of you narrating my book I could not help smiling. Not only were you amazingly efficient, but I loved the way you got and delivered the inspiration and empowerment that is such an important component of the book. Your delivery, cadence and tone are excellent; I am in awe of the way you use your voice in a way that helps the listener. My appreciation only increased as we continued working together through the narration and submission for publication process. I am so grateful for your professionalism, passion and purpose you brought toMidlife Career Rescue: Employ Yourself. Thank you so very much for bringing your gifts to my work. It is the perfect reading. Working with you has been so lovely, enriching and joyful.

“Don’t you do what you love when you retire?” a then 28-year-old Naomi Barton said to me when she contacted me for help to forge a new career. “Where did you learn that?” I challenged. And so began the evolving of Naomi’s career path where now she has challenged the myth that you do what you love when you’ve finished your career and how she realised her true essence.
