About Ersilia

An idea written down becomes a dream,

a dream broken down into steps becomes a plan,

a plan put into action becomes a dream made real!!!

Hey Joyful Spirits


I’m Ersilia the founder and creator of Take Joy Seriously & Inspiring Breaks. Dynamic, sensitive, intuitive, courageous, joyous and curious!!! An International Coach and ideas person that loves people and innovation dedicated to supporting you on your journey as an entrepreneur.


Have you ever had a dream or idea and thought one day!!! Well this is my one day….. the dream that became real.


I find that in life and even business and relationships the missing link to success is emotional awareness, and more of you, the key to a successful life, relationship or business, understanding ourselves so we can get further and do better. Understanding our purpose and why we do what we do. There are a lot of rational and logical ideas to help us, but not many solutions to understand how we feel, that effects our results, learn how we function to boost our motivation or deal with stress.

I want to shake up your ideas about how to create a life, business project or relationship that is inspiring, create new perspectives for success and do it with more fun and joy. I want you to see things through another angle of vision.

Australian born and UK raised with an Italian Father, who taught me all about ‘La Dolce Vita’, my passion was always business and innovation with the freedom to do what I loved. I am now proud to have developed a concept and international coaching business that does just that whilst supporting you to develop, grow and expand your talents and gifts to show your entrepreneurial skills and passion for what you love and create a business from it.


An idea written down becomes a dream, a dream broken down into steps becomes a plan, a plan put into action becomes a dream made real!!!


How did it start? I started young (at 19) taking big groups around Europe guiding them on their outer journey to beautiful places, enjoying myself whilst earning good money…. However It stopped when I began to feel guilty doing what I loved and being paid for it….I thought I needed to be serious and find a career like everyone else, thinking that wasn’t!! So I did…..I found 9-5!!!

I did ok, putting my talent for business & travel into practice, helping develop others dreams, but there was always that niggling feeling that there must be more to life then this… and I wasn’t satisfied. I tried my hand at different things, thinking that was wrong, but which I now know is how I began to learn about who I was. I had an insatiable curiosity for learning and I wanted to experience more freedom.


So I went off to beautiful France on my inner journey of wealth and to start my own business, my own little dream of a juice bar and cafe by the beach.

As a young woman entrepreneur, I was confident and enthusiastic, but highly sensitive and it started well, but it became stressful and full on. I had big dreams to expand but I began to struggle through business not understanding my emotions and how it effected my results, criticising myself, trying to do it alone, not knowing what it was all about, making mistakes and not realising my own talents, gifts & traits.

I had the wrong ideas about success and what I could achieve. My belief was that I had to work hard and thought that meant I couldn’t do what I loved and be what I loved. I lost what was important to me including my joy, my focus & my relationship, striving for money, comparing myself to others, trying to please them and work out what was wrong with me to fix it, instead of what was right and readjusting….I almost gave up, but instead decided to go on an inner journey and found the courage and resilience to keep going, retrain my brain and develop tools to survive through the ups and downs of business, emotions, relationships and what being highly sensitive is all about.


Haven’t learnt from my mistakes, I realised it was about about creating a new vision for myself, with ways to stop the inner critic, the excuses why I couldn’t do what I love, let go of the limits I put on myself and stop telling myself I’m not good enough or listen to others opinions of why I ‘shouldn’t’.

Take a step back from life to look from the outside in and find a way to listen to yourself, your intuition and what you enjoy and how to make a career from it.

With 15 years experience internationally and a whole bunch of business and personal experiences Take Joy Seriously and the Joy concept is about inspiring others to develop their dreams, through steps and a process to stay structured and focused so as not to give up and grow and expand consistently.

I used to be a guide taking people to explore beautiful places along the way, I now support people on another journey to explore their beautiful self, their inner beauty and create the outer world to match.

“In the midst of difficulty lies Opportunity” –

Albert Einstein

I often found that when I went away I explored the world but also myself. I took a step back, connected to nature and others and returned renewed and motivated, with more self awareness and a feeling of sense and purpose. It boosted me, my business and my relationships so I wanted to create the same for others.

Sometimes in the midst of our busy lives we get stuck in habits, not sure how to change them and repeat our patterns over and over again until it gets so bad, life forces us to do something about it.

Inspiring breaks was created for this transition period, to take a break, step outside your life, get another perspective and go home remotivated with the joy of life and new ideas & solutions. I wanted to offer people a different light hearted approach to learn about oneself, spirituality and the world. A way to start your journey to more fulfillment and wellbeing that creates more joy and allows new possibilities, resulting in greater wealth, greater health and greater abundance. Inspiration comes from ‘In Spirit’, with the inner spirit, inner knowing and inner wisdom as our guide to remember to love who we are, to do what we love and love what we do. The purpose of life is to connect with your spirit and find your Joy and then go out into the world and share that with others
