I’m Kellie Hansen, the Energetic Soulpreneur.
I’m a naturopath and coach. I support busy women to create soul-driven, joy-filled lives; by helping them to regain energy, vitality and clarity of mind; so they can create a clear plan for their lives and act on it with confidence. I used to be the Burnout Queen! But now I’ve spent years purposefully learning the world’s greatest transformative tools to support women to tap into their unlimited potential.
I work with women in group and one-on-one settings to support them to create a life and career that they love, using an intuitive combination of herbal medicine, naturopathic therapies, nutrition, life coaching, naturopathic emotional release, law of attraction practices, lifestyle interventions, Time Line Therapy® and linguistic programming. I opened my first naturopathy business Inner Vitality Naturopathy 4 years ago. Over the years, my life has changed and my vison for my business has transformed. Working with me is not your run-of-the-mill approach to healthcare, life or business. I provide a truly unique and holistic approach to support women to improve their health, reconnect with their passions and create a joyful, sustainable life that they love.
// What were you doing prior to your business and why did you get started? There’s a reason why I get so much joy and satisfaction from helping women to move towards the life of their dreams: I spent most of my twenties deep in Burnout-ville. In my six years in the television and film industry I learned the lessons of failing to make self-care a priority and not making time to tune in to my own inner guidance. I was forced to stop everything, including work, and I even got sent home from a health retreat to rest and get better! Fatigue, debilitating illness, anxiety and ultimately, massive burnout were my teachers and boy did I learn from them.
It’s been a long and amazing journey from Busy Burnout Queen to Energetic Soulpreneur. Along my path I have found that health, success, joy and vitality become your natural state when you make selfcare a priority and create the space to connect with your soul-purpose. I am so grateful to have discovered that life and work don’t have to be hard. They can be playful, fun and meaningful. The more I look after myself and follow the things that light me up, the more abundance, success and fulfilment I receive. It’s so simple and so incredibly powerful.
// What are you most proud of? One of my proudest moments in my life was obtaining my degree in Naturopathy, but it may not be for the reasons you are thinking.
Sure, it’s great to have professional recognition and a formal qualification to back-up my knowledge and skills in natural health, nutrition and herbal medicine. But what I’m most proud of is that I listened to my heart, I followed my passion, and I made the choice to step away from a job that wasn’t in alignment with my values in order to create a life in which I could be my own boss, managing my own time, making my own money, doing what I love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Going after my dream meant stepping into the unknown. It meant leaving security, predictability and financial stability. I wasn’t an academic, I didn’t study chemistry at school, I had no experience in any scientific fields, and I never considered myself to be smart enough to go to university. But I saw something bigger for my life and I decided to go for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I backed myself, and I graduated with distinction. It took commitment, persistence, resilience and drive but I saw it through to the end. This experience taught me that the number one thing you need to succeed isn’t knowledge, skills or smarts…. It’s the unwavering belief that you can have it. This was a turning point in my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
// What do you love most about being in business? As high-achieving women we feel so much pressure to be “all the things”. Empowered business woman. Nurturing mother. Loving wife. Caring daughter. Supportive friend. Phew. It’s hard, right! I’ve been there! (I am a chronic fatigue survivor) and I know for a fact that it really doesn’t have to be this way. Which is why I’ve dedicated my life to supporting soul-driven female entrepreneurs to create their dream business and life, by supporting them with their health, vitality, mindset and life planning.
What lights me up is seeing the transformation that occurs when my clients put self-care first and become aligned with their passions and purpose. I love watching them step into their power and open up to what is possible for them. I wholeheartedly believe that no matter your age or circumstance, any woman can create a soul-driven, joy-filled life with the right support.
// Lets talk South Australia, What do you love most about doing business here? In my early years in the television industry, I had the absolute pleasure of travelling all around South Australia as part to the Channel Nine, Postcards crew. It was an incredible experience uncovering our State’s hidden gems and connecting with the people that make this State so great! Personally, I have always been a down south girl and I have a bit of a soft spot for the Fleurieu region. I grew up in Happy Valley. I was married in McLaren Vale at Woodstock winery and my husband, and I spent 6 years living in Aldinga. I fell in love with the local community, the picturesque Willunga hills, stunning beaches and relaxed lifestyle. It’s the first time I had experienced a true sense of community and connection.
When we started a family the Aldinga to City commute just wasn’t going to work for us anymore, so we moved to Seaview Downs. You’ll often find us paddle boarding at Seacliff beach or at the Brighton Lifesaving Club. I am deeply connected to the Fleurieu community. I am passionate about creating opportunities for local business women to collaborate, communicate and connect on a deeper level.
I run regular Love Local Flueurieu networking events which bring together a heart-driven sisterhood of women who share my vision of women supporting women. Together we support each other to grow, succeed and share our amazing gifts with rest of the world.
