Ep 65: Creating a remarkable, future-proof life from the ashes of trauma with Educational Strategist Jacqui Gold

After enduring bullying and long-term sexual abuse by her father, Jacqui Gold decided she alone is responsible for her direction and she will never lose that, even to trauma. Now an Educational Strategist and Founder of JG Educate Ltd., Jacqui leads future generations to understand that, with resilience and determination in their education, they can create remarkable future-proof lives. Listen and you too will believe something wonderful is always about to happen and the impossible can become remarkable.

About the Guest:

Few people understand the significance of that day in the life of Jacqueline Gold. She was 14 years old and walking out of school after registering for the day; walking out to end the short life that she had lived because the trauma, torment and abuse had become too much. In the time that she had been alive she had witnessed violence inflicted on her mother by her father; she was also repeatedly raped by her blood father from the age of 11 under threat of her mothers life if she reported him. She felt so weak until a teacher appeared, like a guardian angel out of nowhere and began the process that would turn her life chances around and lead her to her purpose of leading future generations to understand that with resilience and determination in their education, they can create a remarkable future proof life.

Throughout my life, I have fought many battles, some more than once and some feeling alone. What is key is that I decided at a young age that I alone am responsible for where my life goes and I was determined never to lose to my childhood trauma. I am not saying that changes happened instantaneously, they didn’t. What is real is that I set myself goals and invested in the help needed to achieve them. This has given me a wealth of experience and knowledge which I channel daily into my strategies that I work with my clients on.

My team and I  have helped literally thousands of young people to work through their problems and create a life which they love; one in which they use their strengths in whichever form they take to experience happiness. I am an Education Strategist and have used my professional experience to develop to open up educational opportunities for all; it is future proof and international as it comprises virtual learning with real teachers.
