Victoria Mary Clarke: From a Nervous Breakdown to Life Coaching
On this week' episode, we talk with Victoria Mary Clarke, a media and life coach who has had more jobs and incarnations than most. Victoria was born plain Victoria Clarke (the Mary was added for effect) in Dublin, Ireland. She learned to read Cornflake boxes at the age of two, and began work on her first autobiography ‘All About Me’ at the age of six.
In the book, she stated her clear intention to become very, very rich.
By the time she reached sixteen, Victoria had begun the process of becoming very rich, and was hard at work on the second volume of memoirs, ‘Brown Rice And Vegetables’, a tragic account of having to eat wholesome, organic food in the Irish countryside.
Victoria’s life took an unexpected turn when she met and fell madly in love with the Pogues singer Shane Mac Gowan in a pub in London, when she was seventeen. From awkward beginnings, romance blossomed. Not many books were written during the years that followed, but a lot of fun was had.
She did have a nervous breakdown at some point, which helped go in a completely new direction, which we talk about in much detail on the podcast.
