I’m a big advocate for the fact that amazing things happen in your 40s. You can find the love of your life, change your career, or make a self-discovery transformation.
I feel so grateful to be bringing you this episode today. I am chatting with the inspirational, incredibly passionate, mother of six – Antonia Kidman. Antonia’s career has many remarkable highlights, including working for Foxtel and as a writer for several different magazines. She is now working as a lawyer based in Sydney and specialises in supporting women going through transformations and promoting social justice.
When Antonia moved to Singapore with her husband and children, she decided she wanted to leave the media, continue her education, and further stimulate her mind. Her love of politics, psychology, and history led her to make the decision in her 40s to change her career from journalism, writing and producing, to study law and become a lawyer. She chats with us about her early career, family life and her decision to change her career path to help people navigate really complex situations.
Her passion and dedication for supporting women and standing up for social justice shines through in our conversation. She gives amazing advice to women who are going through transformations themselves and shares the biggest breakthrough moment in her life.
Antonia is such a warm and open person who is here to remind you to be confident and back yourself. If you feel like something is not okay, you don’t have to accept it in your life. There is always room to change and align with your true purpose.
And most of all, be present and enjoy every moment!
