Mentoring Program

For over 20 years, I’ve guided some of the world’s most successful brands, CEOs and entrepreneurs delivering extraordinary results.

I launched them into new markets, quadrupled their profit and set them up for $100 million dollar acquisition deals.

The incredible power of what I’m doing now is that I am in my power. I’m proud of who I am. I’m proud of the journey.

I promise to show you how to own your power by taking ownership of your life journey.  Let’s take a powerful step forward to attract what you truly deserve.

Starting a global business takes guts, and it helps to have a partner who believes in the power of you.

I’m bringing my global expertise to the next generation of entrepreneurial women who want to step into their true power and potential and transform their dreams into reality.

My passion, integrity and delivery is what made me the woman I am today.

I believe those you teach are the best teachers for others so please accept my introduction to meet the women who have seen results from the Powerful Steps Mentoring Program (below, in their own words).

How will people benefit from the Powerful Steps Mentoring Program?

Renewed energy and focus for what matters in life. I empower others to understand the power of stepping outside their comfort zone, getting uncomfortable to up-level and raise their vibration so they can attract what they truly deserve. I use my expertise based on two decades of creating powerful brand campaigns and businesses for others (including my own) and translate it into powerful steps people can take to attract that same success.

Meet Julie Hyde

Leadership, People and Culture Expert, Keynote speaker Author, Podcaster

What was your mission at the outset when Tory started mentoring you?

During Covid, I felt I had had lost my sparkle and felt really flat. I also felt had lost connection to my values and purpose in what I was doing. I needed to be reconnected to my story and values and to get my sparkle back!

How successfully has that been achieved and where are you at now?

It has been very successful for me. I am repositioning my business, stepping out of my comfort zone, commenced a new signature program and planning to take it global. I am connecting with amazing women and understanding the value of partnerships and collaboration a whole lot more.

Which three key mindset switches did Tory support you with?

To think big, the value of my story and to be vulnerable and share more of me.

How did what Tory offered differ to other support you may have had in the past?

A lot of people promise the world but don’t deliver. Tory does. Tory is very supportive and invested in your success. She really is your cheerleader and wants you to stand on her shoulders and be successful. She doesn’t just say it – she does it.

Did you receive value for money/time spent and would you recommend Tory to others looking to attract new business in 2021?

Yes 100% – if you are willing to put in the work – you will achieve the outcomes.

Share a short anecdote about something Tory said or did that particularly resonated with you.

People will come to you if they align with your values. When one door closes, let it. There is another more exciting door to open for you

What is your major takeaway?

The power of your story and the power of connections. Also, that you can do whatever you put your mind to with the right support and frameworks in place.

How confident are you feeling moving into the year with strategies learned at Powerful Steps? 

Very confident – I am clear and have so many new ideas and techniques to amplify my business.

What is Tory’s one particular strength when it comes to mentoring?

Her quick thinking brain and experience! I know that is two things! She is an amazing bundle of energy and ideas. If you want action – she is your action girl and butt kicker! She encourages progress and celebrates it!

What was your mission at the outset when Tory started mentoring you?

To build my personal brand and communication strategy. I was evolving in life, both personally and professionally, and as an entrepreneur, I have a lot of various activities on the go; so needed clear action steps and accountability from a mentor.

How successfully has that been achieved and where are you at now?

It has been an amazing journey with extraordinary success; at a variety of levels. 

Now I have:

  • A complete rebrand, and consistency across all my websites and platforms.
  • A strong online presence, communication, interaction, and engagement; that has allowed people to get to know who I am and what I am about while retaining my authenticity. 
  • Brand equity; that has not only allowed me to confidently reach out to potential partners; it has also attracted various collaborations and partnerships with scope for wide ranging opportunities. 
  • A constantly building and growing support network and community of like- minded individuals. 
  • A book for mums that sold out of its first print run, 7 weeks out from its release!

Which three key mindset switches did Tory support you with?

  1. The notion that: If you want others to invest in you, you have to invest in yourself.
  2. Understanding the extent of my worth; and the power of brand equity. 
  3. Exit comfort zone. Enter power zone.

How did what Tory offered differ to other support you may have had in the past?

Tory has a super quick, decisive, hands on approach, and gets things done. She also generously draws upon her own network then and there to seek more information, ask a question – achieve an outcome. Her very holistic approach; means progress and growth is guaranteed.

Did you receive value for money/time spent and would you recommend Tory to others looking to attract new business in 2021?

Tory is known to deliver results. She goes above and beyond in all sessions. I would certainly recommend Tory; her authentic way of working together with you, and her knowledge and breadth of experience are a winning combination. 

Share a short anecdote about something Tory said or did that particularly resonated with you.

Tory shares her story about building her powerful company, Torstar; based primarily on impenetrable self-belief; without the external tools; such as money, industry contacts etc. This particularly resonated with me; as I too have achieved various goals in life, and know I will continue to do so, using the fuel and foundation of self-belief.

What is your major takeaway?

Connect, communicate, be visible, be you.

How confident are you feeling moving into the year with strategies learned at Powerful Steps?

I feel I am at a new level of personal empowerment, connection, and support.

What is Tory’s one particular strength when it comes to mentoring?

Her ability to ‘meet you’ where you are at in life and make the impossible seem possible, and the intangible, become tangible.

What did you want to change about your life and why?

After selling all of my businesses 4.5 years ago I thought that I was ready for full time retirement. But there are only so many lunches & trips that you can do in any one lifetime. So I was bored, feeling lost and looking to find a new purpose for the last phase of my life

Why did you come to Tory?

After watching a webinar presentation from Tory I thought that it would be worthwhile seeing what she could do to help me find myself again. I had the idea of starting a global sneaker business with zero background in either fashion or manufacturing. It seemed like a great idea at the time but Tory & I now laugh about this initial discussion. Turns out that this was the worst idea ever but all was not lost.

What advice were you given, and where has it taken you to today?

After coming to ‘my senses’ Tory helped me to see that I have significant potential to develop a new business using my strengths of business development for increased profitability. That is how my new business called Life Lessons Erica King has come to fruition. This is a very exciting & fulfilling new project which is the last phase of brilliance in my life.
I truly did not believe that I had another business in me. But here we are & moving quickly to launching. Tory has and continues to work with me every step of the process. I mean every step. No detail is left out. I feel very blessed to be gaining the benefits of Tory’s extraordinary expertise & experience.

For the past nine years I’ve spoken predominantly to parents, educators and health professionals about the impact of technology on children and adolescents’ physical health, mental wellbeing and learning, but in recent years I’ve started to research and speak about adults’ digital behaviours and how they’re impacting their productivity and wellbeing.

What did you want to change about your life and why?

I wanted to refine and elevate my brand, as I transition more towards speaking and consulting with corporate clients and audiences. I wanted to find smart, magnetic ways to share my message with a broader audience. I wanted to find optimal ways to position myself as a global thought leader and Tory’s business acumen, PR experience and understanding of energy was what attracted me to working with Tory.

Why did you come to Tory?

I needed clarity and strategic guidance when it comes to repositioning my brand and building connections and partnerships with corporate clients.
