The Unlimited Club was founded by the John family...and here we all are.
But it hasn't all been plain sailing.
A few years ago I (Claire John) didn’t know what to do. I felt stuck, worthless, disconnected and clueless about why I was in the position I was in. I decided enough was enough and I needed to take a deep dive into my ‘stuff’ to sort it out.
During the deep dive, I had my daughter. I’ve never been so afraid before in my entire life. I didn’t want to pass on beliefs, fears, hang-ups and the mindset that had limited my life. I didn’t want the cycle to continue. So it became my personal and professional purpose to explore this subject and understand how the mind works so I could help other people. One training and viewpoint led to another - counselling, hypnotherapy, NLP and coaching - and this coupled with my own life experience helped me to really see and think outside the box.
And while this was going on my husband Chris, who was experiencing the ups and downs of running a software business, was along for the ride too. He was going through his own personal development journey... the whole family were.
And there we were, learning, growing and doing our own things when we had a real ah-ha moment. We realised our purpose, values and aspirations had aligned. We’d reconnected with who we were, what we wanted and what we were really about before ‘life’ apparently took over.
And this was game-changing. In fact, it’s formed a big part of what we do now and it’s at the heart of The Unlimited Club.
We began to explore what we could achieve if we pooled resources - if technology and positive psychology were combined to create something that would help the next generation. What if we could help families who felt like we did? Families who wanted to see, think and step outside the box to change it up for everyone?
Chris was already developing a piece of software for our daughter to use, which allowed her to create projects and would encourage independent thinking and learning. It seemed a no-brainer to turn this into something that would help other kids and families.
As for me, I’m passionate about bringing this message to the world through online resources and real-world events that help us share, learn, connect and have a lot more fun in the process...so we’re able to be the change we want to see for our kids. After a decade of exploring what makes me tick and how I can be happier and healthier, I’ve come to the conclusion the best way to help our kids is to show them, not tell them, what a happy, fulfilled, badass life actually looks like.
I love this...it sums it up completely.
