Be Brilliant Now Sarah
Emerging Leader

When I first met Jewells, I was feeling unhappy with my life as a whole. Everything seemed dull on a day to day basis. I knew I wanted passion, colour, connection and meaning but I didn't know how to articulate that - let alone manifest it. When I saw the short course on body language Jewells offered at the CAE; I felt drawn to it as it provided insight into understanding why we behave the way we do. Investing in time with Jewells to get crystal clear on what is important to me, and what type of life I ultimately want to be living, was one of the most important decisions I've made.

The support and advice that Jewells gave me were invaluable! She has a unique ability to understand what I wanted to say when I couldn't find the words, and in helping to verbalise these deep and complicated thoughts, she helped me to have some big realisations. By getting clear on what I wanted, and most importantly why it had to happen, I have been able to manifest my dream of living in Mexico with my amazing partner and of living a balanced life of adventure yet comfort. I can now use what I learnt with Jewells whenever I reach a crossroads and want to make a decision that feels right to me. Thank you Jewells! You rock!!

The Networking Formula

Thank you SO, SO, SO MUCH for everything you have done for me, put up with and worked through with me. I’ve been trying to get this stuff sorted for the better part of 10 years and just never really found the right person. I knew right from the moment I met you that you were it.  I don’t think I have ever felt this light before in my life. I don’t feel so panicked and chaotic in my head and being, which is a fantastic relief that I am just not able to put into words.

The very fact that I’ve attracted two of my largest paying clients to me in the time we have worked together is pure testimony to the work we’ve done. This process isn’t for the faint-hearted. You do have to be willing to confront the demons you may have buried for a very long time, but the result is SO worth it. Don’t live one more day of feeling like crap.  A loving, colourful, crazy-ass soul is waiting to navigate the path with you, and it’s not as scary as you might think.  Cannot thank you enough Jewells – you are AMAZING more than words or actions could ever communicate.  MWAH!

What You Can Expect From Me

My role is to help you win the good fight. Overcome your arch-nemesis, let go of struggles and past emotional baggage, frustrations and perceived limits so you can create a compelling vision and develop a new storyline for your future.

You must be prepared to win the good fight. Mentoring is a partnership. A two-way relationship where we come together as a team, much like Neo and The Oracle, James Bond and Q, Luke Skywalker and Yoda. I'm here to keep you accountable to your mission. be your guide, cone of silence, cheerleader, mirror of truth. You are the hero of your story so you need to do the necessary inner and outer work in order for you to achieve your most cherished goals.

You can expect me to:

  • Spotlight your superpowers and help you untangle them from your doubts, fears and sabotaging behaviours
  • Call you on your stuff and do it with love and transparency
  • Challenge you to think differently
  • Keep you accountable for achieving your goals and spectacular results
  • Guide, support, nurture, encourage and challenge you to be a leader of possibility
  • Reveal your life purpose giving you the confidence, skills and know how to make it your reality
  • Help you have more fun actualizing your dreams, making money and loving life.

Danielle says "I can honestly say it was AMAZING working with Jewells. Jewells has such a calming presence, I can and did talk to her about anything and she always made me feel safe, secure, loved and Brilliant!!

Working with Jewells opened up so many doors for me, it made me realise what I deserve in life and that I have the power and skills to go out and get what I want out of every day! Working through and sorting out the limitations that I had placed on myself allowed me to become a better, stronger more confident Woman and partner and now has encouraged me and given me the skills to know that I am going to be the best Mum ever!"

We've all got superpowers and mine is being able to see very quickly where you are producing the results you want and where you aren't and why. I love my unique ability to join the dots of how and why you think, act and communicate the way you do.

The games you play, your thought patterns, beliefs, values, doubts, dreams and unconscious behaviours all leave valuable clues as to how you are fulfilling and communicating your needs, wants and desires.

It’s in the untangling of the old script and behaviours and the writing of new ones that allows you to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight so you can escape Groundhog Day, direct your future and be the star of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

We answer our most popular questions and of course if you want more, sing out we'd love to hear from you.

In 2005 I founded Be Brilliant Now with the desire to create a supportive environment fostering change, growth and excellence. Since then, I've developed a diverse range of personal transformation, wellness and career enhancement trainings. >>Click to see available Masterclasses: 

Being one of Australia’s leading NLP Trainers, I work with emerging leaders, creative entrepreneurs and BIG dreaming high achievers to provide powerful principles, tools and dialogue to clarify your purpose and goals, giving practical insights to assist you to succeed.

Detailed knowledge of a wide range of modalities has become the key to achieving high levels of success with my students and coaching clients. 

Prior to entering the world of Personal Development, I spent 22 years years in the television and event industries managing teams from 8 - 800. Some career highlights were producing Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Comedians For A Cause and a Production Manager for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies. I have worked intimately with high pressure, tight deadlines and strict budgets. This paradigm has served me to be deeply committed to the importance of effective communication, dedication, focus, discipline and courage.

I believe learning is active not passive that's why I ensure that we focus on a learn / do model. I'll support you to think differently, bust through mental roadblocks quickly so you can achieve spectacular results consistently. It is your responsibility to put the practical tools I'll share with you into daily use. That will give you the most immediate and long-lasting results.

All of our programs are a process of discovery, experimentation, curiosity and creativity with fun, easy to master techniques to help you fully, completely and lovingly get to know the deepest depths of yourself and therefore make the biggest difference in the world.

It allows you to take responsibility for your actions, reactions and results in all areas of your life and ultimately help others do the same. It is definitely exciting and sometimes confrontational to know yourself with such authenticity.

I look back to how I was without the training I've had and rejoice in who I am now because of it.

Our programs are future-focused, holistic and a game changer for anyone wanting to be brilliant now. If you know things must change and you also know the only person to make the change is you then you’re in the right place. Make it easier for yourself and enrol today.

Firstly you can expect a massive high five and celebration of you!!! 

The mentoring and training I offer will probably be different from what you might have expected because I like to make it as interesting and fun for you to achieve the most powerful and profound transformation possible.

As your alternative health care mentor, I have been trained and certified in Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis, Psychosomatic Therapy, Journey work, Scientific Hand Analysis etc at the Master Coach and Trainer level and will be using these techniques.

Throughout everything Be Brilliant Now offers, it is very important for us to discover the internal thought process of HOW you create the problem. We are interested in helping you to identify your strategy of how you do it rather than why. Because our focus is on structure, that means that, once we discover it, we can move on and focus on having the problem disappear very quickly.

Our training process allows you to learn new ways of communicating with yourself and those around you. You will reconnect and realign yourself to know internally who you are, what you want and where you’re going. In other words being who you need to BE, to do what you want to DO in order to have what you want to HAVE. Once your relationship with yourself blossoms you will find that wealth and transformation are inevitable. You grow.

I'd love to be able to say a resounding YES! Absolutely it will work for you! And 100% it can.  The truth is the only way it's going to work for you is if you also do the work necessary.

It is important that you stubbornly focus on what you want. The people who are the happiest over-all in life are those who recognise that you have a choice to focus on what you don’t want or what you DO want. You can focus on negative emotions and things that make you feel bad, or you can focus on positive emotions and things that make you feel good. It is your choice. After the sessions, YOU MUST FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT and TAKE ACTION and this may include you’re enforcing your boundaries. These steps are for you to perform OUTSIDE the training room, and they are not in the teacher's control - therefore no responsibility can or will be accepted for your results not achieved.

If you feel your old behaviour/problem reappearing, then you must refuse to run that pattern again. Please remember that we have the utmost total and complete respect for you and absolutely no respect for your old problems.

Finally, there is no magic pill so to speak but I'm fairly confident that with good commitment and work on your part, and your willingness to trust this process and trust your guide you can achieve what it is you want to achieve. 

The direct answer is no.

When we have our Blockbuster Discovery session together I will ask you a series of questions. The process is for me to assess you just as much as I expect you to assess me and if we have that special connection to make magic so you can achieve and surpass your goals then we will explore your options from there.

I will be asking myself "Will this student play well with others to help create a high performing environment?” "Do I feel excited to work with you and do I feel like you joining our program, you will receive the results you're seeking?" 

If I love you and you love me – I will really hope that it’s a yes but at the end of the call what I really want to do is bring you to a decision.

And if I don’t think it will work I'll let you know that I don’t think this is the right fit and here’s why, I think you need someone with a different skill set to me to help you with what you want to achieve and if I can I'll refer you to someone else.

And if we both come to a full-bodied YES let's do this, then we will continue to the onboarding process. YAY!

As soon as we've said yes to working together we'll work out which program is going to give you the most profound and powerful results.

Choosing the right program will be dependent on your needs and your BIG dream and the amount of support you want to make it happen.
