I'm Kerry

I'm a 20-year-old (OK, 20 multiplied by two and add a bit, but who's counting!), Business Owner and Career Angel. I love the work I do, but it hasn’t always been that way. It's achieving my own career happiness that inspired me to create Akeno Adventure.
Like many people, I've worked in jobs and situations that didn’t make me happy. I’d have the feeling of dread on a Sunday evening, worse still, it’d sometimes start on a Saturday afternoon, thinking and worrying about the working week ahead. I worked alongside peers paid much more than me, and I was held back by a lack of confidence of what to do about it. And when I did secure a new role and a better way of working, my fears told me that I wasn’t good enough to be there; I couldn’t win!
It was time for a change...
I worked on identifying and developing new techniques, to change my mindset and ways of working, which was life-changing. A solid foundation of self-worth underpins it all. This, coupled with practical actions, has enabled me to develop a career that genuinely makes me happy. I have reclaimed my weekends and I wake up excited to start my days. I have found fulfilment, and I love my work, which includes helping you to find your career happiness!
In 2019, I successfully completed the Self-Worth Academy’s coaching programme, and became a Certified Associate. In 2021, I engaged with the Ikigai Institute, and completed my certification in January 2022, so I now have proven frameworks that enable my clients to find their ‘ideal’ career; their Ikigai.
My approach with clients is a blend of coaching, mentoring and practical guidance, to unlock the potential for a life, career, or business venture, that makes them truly happy. My clients tell me that my friendly, positive, and pragmatic support, coupled with gentle challenge, and an “in-it-together” attitude, is what makes the difference.
Outside of work, I value and embrace my downtime. I enjoy travelling with my husband, and love everything about cars, motorbikes, and anything else with an engine! In fact, I’m known as a bit of a daredevil! From cliff diving in Jamaica, to parachuting over the British countryside, and even partaking in supercar track days, I enjoy activities that are full of adrenaline. On the opposite end of the adrenaline scale, I’m also a bookworm, and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book whilst sitting in the sunshine!
In fact, the need for a work/life balance was a key reason why I transitioned my career and ways of working. It worked for me, and it could work for you too. I promise!

"I'm still on my career adventure, so who knows what the future holds, but whatever comes my way, I know I'll get through it with Kerry's support and guidance. I'm really glad I invested in myself in this way, otherwise I'd still be stuck in that rut!"

"I’d always allowed my doubts, the security of my existing role and perceived ‘blockers’ to get in the way of doing anything about it. That was until I met Kerry."
