For Tina it’s about powerfully impacting women to live the best version of themselves, using tools and techniques that empower the mind, body and soul.
You have worked in the media industry, in property and you are the founder of Feeling Fab at 5O. Can you please describe your journeys that lead you to success?
PEOPLE SAY YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, THAT’S NOT TRUE YOU ONLY DIE ONCE!
YOU LIVE EVERY SINGLE DAY OF YOUR LIFE SO WHY NOT LIVE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF?
I believe the key to success is very simple, all you need is consistency, we already have daily habits in place, just make sure they are good ones! Feeling Fab at 50 is about making better choices every single day to dramatically transform your overall health and wellbeing without feeling overwhelmed.
Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE – Darren Hardy
Before I had my children, I was a confident businesswoman. I worked for a newspaper in the city, managing a team of 15 sales staff.
When I left the corporate world to become a full-time mum, I was determined to put the same effort into bringing up my children, which – let’s be honest ladies – is THE most important job in the world! However, it is also a job where the pay is non-existent, the praise is pretty limited and it’s a 24/7 working week for a good 10 years with an occasional break if you’re lucky.
I had gone from a high-flying businesswoman to a stay-at-home mum. I was no longer financially independent, and I was no longer contributing to our household income.
One day I went for a coffee with a friend who had a couple of buy-to-let properties, and she told me how it worked. My husband thought it was a great idea, so we took the plunge and bought our first property. This was in 2006, and we continued to buy and build a portfolio of properties. Today we own several properties in the north of England.
I think at this point I was the most stressed I have ever been in my life. I wasn’t taking care of myself at all, often felt so tired and down that, I didn’t bother for myself. My self-esteem was at rock bottom: I even stopped seeing friends because I didn’t have time for them.
And this is when my self-development journey began. I became obsessed! It doesn’t take long until you start to see and feel improvements. Over the past 10 years, I have spent hours on YouTube, on Netflix watching documentaries, joined numerous self-development programmes, listening to self-development audible books, following inspirational successful people on social media, attending events and seminars, had personal mentors for business and physical training. I made a lifestyle change back then and I still do all of these things to this day, I am committed to lifelong learning because I believe that if we are not growing, we are shrinking, and I never want to shrink again.
What is the mission and the vision behind Feeling Fab at 5O?

How can women empower their mind, body and spirit? Why do you believe that empowering women’s health and wealth will change the world?
From my personal development journey over the years, I have discovered that the most successful and happy people in the world are consistent every single day of their lives with their habits, beliefs and behaviours and ways of thinking.
Using my simple 4 steps M.E.N.O. Action Plan every day has the power to dramatically change every aspect of your life from health, fulfillment, body, happiness, spirit, productivity, relationships, confidence, and overall wellbeing.
M.E.N.O. is an acronym, M is for the mind, E is for exercise, N is for Nutrition and O is for organisation and by choosing one area from each of the four steps daily, you will be sure to transform your overall health and wellbeing in as little as 30 days.
Remember: what you do TODAY can improve all of your TOMORROWS.
I want to spread the message that reaching 50 needs to be times for exciting change, a time to start focusing on ourselves again, set up a business, run a marathon, jump out of a plane… I don’t know. Just do all the things you’ve ever dreamed of doing because at this stage, we have still got half of our lives to live and if you take care of your health you can enjoy all of these amazing things life has to offer.
The Mastermind program Think Big & Go Global, how has it changed you?
I can honestly say that my personal experience with Mirela and the Global Woman network has been life-changing. I came home from London with a new lease of life and a belief and confidence in myself to go out there and help as many other women as possible to live the best version of themselves at middle age… She helped me to see clearly that my purpose is to help as many women as possible.
Mirela is an amazing, authentic and truly caring woman whose mantra is to share everything with everyone. She is a true inspiration and somebody I am truly grateful to have met.
