Hiya and Welcome!

I'm Bella Zanesco. I support leaders like you to fall in love with Mondays, get Fully Expressed and become financially INDEPENDENT.

How can you help me?

I've got 20+ years of experience in transforming the world's largest companies using design-led approaches to deliver $5billion of new revenues.

I use these skills, methodologies and frameworks (cue: not outdated quantitative career skill assessments) to leverage an innovative, highly experiential and no BS approach to help you create the life, career or business you desire but have no idea how to turn into reality, or perhaps lack the courage to dream of.

Over the last five years, I've helped hundreds of executives from lawyers, accountants, management consultants, journalists and marketers (among many other professionals) to create a career and life strategy backed by solid financials.

Google even named me "the best high-performance coach they've engaged".

Following the strategy and design phase of our work, we find your next job, negotiate a substantial salary increase, or help you build a side hustle or business, make your first revenues and scale.

Whether you're striving for the boardroom, or to work in your activewear and own your schedule or a bit of both, we can make it happen.

What results can I expect?

"For so long I've been wanting to break free from my 9 to 5 job but didn't know how wasn't sure of my direction and wouldn't even give myself permission to even try.

Bella has changed all of that. In only 3 short months she was able to demolish layers of self-doubt and self-sabotaging beliefs.

Bella taught me to only to take off the mask I wore in my life, but how to get rid of it for good.  Her guidance has helped me finally connect with my true self and what I really want in life.

Although we have touched on some of the 'airy fairy' things like vision, values and beliefs, Bella is also incredibly savvy and strategic.

We are now putting together business plans, service propositions and step by step processes for getting my business up and running (and soon thriving).

Bella is an uncanny mix of new age thinking, creativity and no-nonsense logic and reason.

If you're after a holistic coach who can help you piece together the business/work, health, fun and connection you want in life, then this amazing woman is for you!   Bella has helped me on so many levels.  Life will never be the same; thank goodness for that! " Stephanie Big 4 Accountant

So who are you really, Bella?

A curious adventurer at heart and never been a square peg to fit in a round hole, my goal is to live a Fully Expressed life. One that involves an eclectic mix of flow hacking activities to keep me bright eyed and bushy tailed.

When I'm not supporting you to elevate your career,  I'm the Entrepreneur in Residence for Slingshot Accelerator, Australia's leading corporate startup accelerator.  In this role, I mentor founders of health tech startups to build businesses that change the health outcomes for all, and to stay well in the process.

My passions include applying geeky science to hack high states of performance, photographing faces and deepening my connection to self and others through a committed yoga practice.

Oh and I make a mean green smoothie.

I have a need for speed and after nine attempts I became a World Champion Sailor. Nowadays you can find me kiteboarding when the wind's up.

In 2018 I was awarded the Vice Chancellors Alumni of the Year from my university for outstanding service to my profession and the community.

In 2015 I was awarded the UK Top 50 Young Changemaker of the Year by the City of London for my work supporting executives to create a life and career on their terms.

My joy in taking photos of the world's people resulted in international photography awards including The Weekend Australian Travel Photographer of the Year and the Runner-Up UK's Independent Newspaper Photographer of the Year.

I geek out on learning so have the following qualifications. A Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance, a Masters in NLP / Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a Bachelor of Business and a yoga teaching 200-hour certificate.
