Does this sound like you or a friend?

Hello Lovelies,

Do you wonder why you can’t get what you want? The secret, believe it or not, is generally you!

When we allow ‘life to happen to us,’ instead of consciously creating a life we love, we can feel like we are waking up ‘groundhog day after day,’ wondering how to get what we truly want.

It doesn’t matter whether you never seem to be able to call in the right romantic relationship, you are still at the job that makes you anxious when you wake up in the morning, or another day has passed when you are not moving towards the life you want, the key is very simple: to start making conscious choices of what you want in life and to learn new life skills that will support you to get there.

When we come into this world, no one gives us the handbook on how to be a ‘human being’; instead, we arrive here ready for life and slowly we learn ways of those around us, and without knowing or understanding, we have an unconscious program running that really isn’t truly ours. It’s this programming that keeps us stuck, making the same mistakes over and over again.

Over the past four years, it has been my greatest joy to coach women to reconnect to what brings more meaning to their life, to find their joy and passion, and give them the skills, structures, and systems that will ensure they get there. There is as much learning as there is unlearning but if you are the kind of gal that is fatigued with what’s happening in your life and you really want to do things differently, it is my greatest joy next week to be reopening the doors to Yes, Yes, Yes – Say Yes to Yourself.

If you feel stuck, trapped, tired, exhausted, disillusioned or know a friend who feels this way, please know there is something better out there for you and them and it is your divine right to have the life you want. Please stay tuned for further information.

Love and light,


Yes, Yes, Yes: Say YES To Yourself – Scholarship Winners 2021

Hello Lovelies,

Thank you to each and every person that entered the scholarship. The response was incredible, heartfelt stories and situations and I read every application.

Firstly, I want to honour each and every one of you, your situation, and your story. It may seem impossible right now to change your situation and bring to life what you want but you are a powerful person who is simply disconnected in this moment from your personal power.

I will be sending you something to help you start bringing transformation to your life today.

After reading all the applications and doing a job that was very difficult and narrowing it down, I am pleased to announce that the Yes Yes Yes – Say Yes to Yourself Scholarships for 2021 go to:

  • Tracey
  • Marcella
  • Ava
  • Sheree
  • Melissa

I will be in touch via email and to welcome you to our program.

My heartfelt thanks again, and to all scholarship applicants, watch your inboxes over the coming week.

  • Reconnecting to the essential parts of you and feeling rock solid confidence in who you are, your decisions, choices and how you execute the things you care about most.

Some of you will have been told “you are too late” or “you don’t have the resources to make your dream happen” but the Yes, Yes, Yes gals have proven that wrong over and over again.

  • Women who have a dream or a vision for their life but can’t make it happen.

Carla’s Yes, Yes, Yes program was the best thing to happen to me in a long time. At the time, I was at a very very low point. In the previous years, I’d battled cancer, closed a business, my husband had an affair and left and I had just lost my job. I felt like I would never be happy again.

Now, joy is seeping back into my life, I’m at peace and I feel like ME again and I haven’t even completed all the modules yet! Using the success stories of the fellow participants to motivate me and the modules and readings to empower me, I started to trust in myself and my future. I have just opened my first art exhibition and been offered my dream job. I’m so excited for the future; I’ll be unstoppable. I found my ‘gift in the garbage’ and have been able to heal and believe in such a short time because of Carla and her program.

I feel so honoured and privileged to be part of the Yes, Yes, Yes community. When I first read the course outline, I felt it was written especially for me. The biggest word that kept ringing loudly in my ears was ’stuck’, and I knew I had been there for a number of years. I felt trapped in a life that I no longer had control or ownership of. I was not in a financial position to enroll in the course, so when I read that Carla was offering scholarships, I felt it was there waiting for me. I knew this was an opportunity to change my life.

And that it has. I have re-found myself. Not only do I give myself more time now, I prioritise myself. I have taken ownership of me, my life, my outlook. I am more positive, I am building my self confidence, I am finding joy in the everyday. And people notice. I have had more compliments in the last 3 months than I have had in the last 3 years – I just seem to be glowing and that is physically palpable.

I now stand by my values, and I let them guide me and my decisions. This course has given me so much more than I even hoped or anticipated. And to me within a group of like-minded women – who are so supportive, encouraging, they are your cheer squad for each and every one of us. It is a magic elixir, and I just want to drink it all day, every day! I have no intentions of wrapping up at the end of this round of modules and parking the work. I am hooked, and hope to stay within this community of warrior women, as we all evolve together.

How to have a multi-faceted creative biz you love and be successful?

Collage of photos of carla coulson and her multi-faceted creative business you love, with Italian joy, taking photos, holding flowers and her fine art photos

Hello Lovelies, This is a question people ask me all the time. How do I have a multi-faceted creative biz I love and move from one project to the next and know where I’m going?”

It’s true, when I look back at my life and the different projects and business ‘arms’ I’ve explored there’ve been many! 

    • I moved from Sydney to Florence in Italy
    • Started out as a travel photographer at age 35 working for magazines
    • I photographed and wrote 3 books and collaborated on a further 5, had a successful portrait business in Paris 
    • Gave workshops in Italy and Australia
    • Created the photographic work I love and opened a print shop
    • Trained to become a life coach and coach creatives to life their most fabulous life

The list goes on but that’s not what this is about.


Why can I do this?

It’s not about creativity or any of that or that I’m a whizz at business, my secret is that I have the foundational pieces of who I am as a human being and this allows me to do all of the above. 

    • I know my values and what I stand for and stand against
    • I trust my intuition and use it as a life and business tool
    • I’m heart connected to the projects, people and situations that resonate and excite me.
    • I trust myself
    • I have faith, persistence and patience
    • I’m confident (and I mean this in the most humble of ways)

I KNOW there will be mistakes, I KNOW it won’t be perfect and some things won’t work out, I’m OK with that. This ability to be OK with some ‘course correcting’ is part of a creative life and I’m all in when it comes to living wholeheartedly and creatively. 

Fear is my best friend, it keeps me alert and awake and listening but it doesn’t  crucify me. I’m scared just like you of new things but I’ve learnt that out of my comfort zone lies the magic and opportunities to grow.

What you want to achieve in life or a multi-faceted creative biz you love and is successful comes down to you being rock solid with who you are not actually doing the things. 

    • If you aren’t rock solid with who you are, you won’t have the courage to take the leap.
    • You will be worried about what others think about you instead of what you think about yourself.
    • Fear will freeze you instead of motivating you.

Let’s get one thing straight. It’s not about talent.


If you want to know how you can live more wholeheartedly, reconnect to your joy, creativity and purpose, click on the image above to join the free training.

Talent is something you can learn with time and practice, everyone is talented, what it depends on is how connected you are to your thing. If you love it enough, YOU WILL WANT to do it over and over again and you will be successful. The trick is allowing yourself to do the thing you love. 

This is the basis of Yes, Yes, Yes – Say Yes to Yourself, the foundational pieces that every woman needs so she can go get the life that makes her want to get up in the morning feeling ALIVE, hug the cat, hug the neighbours, and skip down the stairs. 

Your magic lies within you, it’s about letting go of the stuff you carry around that’s not yours and getting to the real you. 

In creativity, love, and light,

Why I Created Yes, Yes, Yes instead of a Photography Course

Hello Lovelies,

I want to tell you a little bit today about why I created Yes, Yes, Yes instead of creating a photography course, which may have seemed more of a natural fit for me.

Approximately 4 years ago, my personal life imploded and I found myself on a Greek Island on my own not believing what was happening to me. My heart had been broken into tiny pieces and I needed a roadmap out of where I was and back to living a life I loved!

In between the tears and being curled up in the foetal position, I had big ideas, I would scribble them down, they came in fast and furious and I knew exactly how to get out of there and I WANTED TO TAKE OTHER WOMEN WITH ME. I had one epiphany after another.

I realised so many things in that moment!

    1. I could do anything I wanted if I allowed myself to Say Yes to what was really in my heart.
    2. I started to re-imagine what that would be and how big I could dream.
    3. I’d compromised on many things over the years that were important to me and I saw many of my friends doing the same things.
    4. I was heartbroken but all the work I had done as a coach was showing me the way out in an empowered way.


You can watch my FREE TRAINING on how to reconnect to your creativity, joy, and purpose and the things that keep you stuck by clicking here.

In the most stressful, heartbreaking time of my life, it was also the most exciting, liberating, and creative time of my life. I wanted to scream from the highest mountain what I knew and share with others and help them live the loves they love and get out of wherever they were, even if it was simply stuck, not on the floors in tears.

Many people can teach you to take photos and it’s my joy also to teach that, but I feel my calling is something greater, to teach you how to have the courage to be a photographer or live the life you love where you are all in.

I’m not special, I just have a roadmap!

My big WHY for creating this program was to take you with me, to show you the other side of a life half-lived. That it’s not just for the lucky ones but for those brave enough to do the work .

What’s your big why? Hit reply and let me know.

Love and light,

Carla x
