Sharryn Ludlow, Provocateur and Founder of Grace and Confidence.
Like most women, Sharryn has many aspects to her life – wife, mother, sister, business consultant, philanthropist, life coach, dog owner, friend. This is why she has founded Grace and Confidence. With all the demands pulling at her, Sharryn recognises what it takes to blend all of the roles and thrive. She believes it is her true mission to help others to live their best life by giving them the tools to pursue their dreams.
Business has always been a part of Sharryn’s life. Her family run furniture store was the playground of her childhood and sowed the ideas of creating your own life on your own terms. Her first business was selling painted pine-cones out the front of her home (it was a dead end street so passing by traffic was a problem!) but when a neighbour came and brought all the stock it cemented the idea of entrepreneurship.
From MaryKay cosmetics to filling event spaces, Sharryn has experienced all the elements of creating an enterprise including the failures and the problems. In the early 2000’s her natural products business went online and later her designer kids clothing ecommerce store was created. By 2014 she was looking for a new challenge and was certified as a coach, speaker and consultant in the John Maxwell team. With a unique blend of business, leadership and life experience, Sharryn stepped into coaching and consulting everyday people to pursue their dreams.
Sharryn resides in Melbourne, Australia with her family. Between her husbands business, university students in the house and a dog that thinks she’s a human, Sharryn not only has her own business but volunteers for a non-profit organisation that is impacting the world.
