Who is Merna


Doing Life DifferentlyHi, I’m Merna.. founder of Doing Life Differently and creator of my own lifestyle.

DOING LIFE DIFFERENTLY helps people to expand their thinking and explore alternate methods of creating wealth, freedom and a lifestyle.  We teach you how to develop the confidence to discover abilities.   By implementing strategies and systems to enhance your current skills, you see and do things differently, thus creating streams of wealth, freedom to grow and a dream lifestyle.  We teach you how to take your life’s experiences and make them work for you.   You should always aspire more.

I believe that we are given life experiences for a reason. A reason that is unique to each and every one of us.  I also know from experience that we are given the same experiences over until we learn the lesson.  Yet for some reason don’t see the lesson of the experience, we choose only to see the difficulty of the situation or the hopelessness rather than look for what we can learn.  Ultimately these situations are designed to teach us about ourselves, so we can move forward, create a better life and have all we desire.  Yet rather than improve ourselves, we continue in the same routine wondering why life is so miserable, or we are so hard done by.

Doing Life Differently is here to help you shortcut these lessons, allowing you to create new normals, a better life and to begin again. By daring to dream, setting goals and achieving all that you desire – or even starting to realize that there is more to life than you currently believe or aspire for, you are able to do life differently with wealth, freedom and a lifestyle.

Like most of us, I got stuck in a rut, living from day to day doing the things that had to be done to get through each day. Every day was routine.  I took my accomplishments for granted. I never felt that anything I did was such a big deal – I just did what had to be done to survive.  I never looked forward, or even considered what would come “later”.

Then one day, it occurred to me – there has to be a bit more to life.  I knew something was missing but was unsure how to discover or rekindle my enthusiasm.   I felt my life was passing by and I was not prepared for all the changes that were occurring. For a long time, I believed that in order to be successful, you must have accomplished some miracle, conquered the odds, discovered the unknown or performed an amazing feat.    Then I had a realization that changed everything.

A realization that allowed me to receive more and “Do Life Differently”.

I have been an employee and a boss, a single woman, a wife, a friend, a partner, a mother, an ex, the other woman, a divorcee,  a coordinator, a student, a daughter, a sister, an investor, a confidant, a coach, a mentor, a trainer, an advice giver, a listener, a problem solver, a problem, a club president, a volunteer, unemployed, lost but most IMPORTANTLY survived a menagerie of conflicting emotions to move forward and succeed.   My journey has been tougher than some, and easier than others.

Armed with my life experience, and knowledge and skills gained from my past employment, I began to reassess, rediscover and redesign my life.

My employment history of working with people to move forward, create a better life, and have an improved lifestyle has equipped me with an understanding of the difficulties in implementing change, of assessing situations and working through the fear of failure, rejection and low self-esteem.

Having supported many people to more effectively and efficiently assess their lifestyle, develop confidence, discover abilities and improve their circumstances to create more fulfilling lifestyles, I decided to apply this knowledge to my life – and it works!!.

My programme is a result of my own experiences, and the insight of those I have assisted to establish positive change.

Balance is the key.   If you are not challenged you just accept.  If you have no expectations – you do not grow.  If you do not question – you stagnate.  If you do not take pride in who you are and what you believe – you do not value yourself.     If you do not fail –  you do not learn – nor succeed.

Even though things are tough, you do amazing work, you give so much of yourself, it seems so much more than a job to you to be able to touch lives.
