Hi, I'm Polly. 

This is my story


I was born feet first under a full moon in the middle of the night during a thunderstorm.

The trailers of the "Movie of My Life" include sky-diving over Las Vegas, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, and flying the trapeze. They also show a grieving child, a teenager furious at life, a young adult making poor choices, and a grown woman determined not to be a victim of her past.

(There’s also a lot of dancing. Polly got moves!)

The movie itself covers 62 countries, 5 careers, 2 dead parents, 4 broken hearts, 3 mountain summits, 1 near-death experience, and a few risky experiments to reinvent myself and change my life including…

- In my 30s I left a career in graphic design and using credit cards funded an 8-month around-the-world backpacking adventure because the desire to travel was so strong.

(later I got a job that paid me to travel for 5 years and became the second-highest-rated adventure travel tour leader in the company)

- In my 40s I left a travel industry product manager position generating annual revenues of $1.6M to become a photographer because my hobby had gotten out of hand. 

(and I've been a multi-award-winning and internationally recognised pro photographer and street photography teacher for 9 years teaching and mentoring over 250 people, under the name of Polly Rusyn)

- In my 50s I left the country I grew up in after I outlived my father (who died when I was 7) to both honour his life (as it had been cut too short) and my own (as I needed to radically shake things up and finally heal my childhood trauma) so I gave up my home, my security, and a third of my income with the dream of settling in Spain but ended up on an accidental journey around Europe.

(that I'm still on!)

The real journey, though, has been an inner one…

- I learned to accept things as they are and trust that's how they should be and found that is the sweet spot where shifts happen.

- I learned that when you base-jump into the void you realise you were wearing a parachute all along. 

- I learned that deepening self-awareness, healing past trauma, getting out of survival mode, befriending fear, shedding limiting beliefs, mastering my thoughts, and embracing uncertainty were possible for me.

- I learned that I don’t have to do it all alone...

(I am a human-in-progress just like everyone else)

And so over the past 18 months I've made a number of expressions of self-love by investing in myself (finally!). I got certifications in various subconscious rewiring modalities as well as coaching with Yes Supply. And am being coached on my own transformation further inside Manifest & Thrive.

I am here on this rock hurtling through space to help soulful people who know they are meant for more transform themselves and their lives so they get to wake up every morning ready to show up, and go to bed at night feeling satisfied.

I want to be able to¬†look back on my own life when I‚Äôm in my final¬†days and say, ‚ÄúDayum, that was a wild ride - I‚Äôm so glad I trusted myself enough to experiment and take chances, and loved myself enough to give myself the¬†opportunity¬†to live my purpose, and lucky enough to be able to work with and help so many people.‚ÄĚ

And I want that for you too - whatever it is you want your life to look like.

The reason you want more is because you know you're meant for more (it's no accident you're reading this)... even if you're not sure what that is yet.

Because, honestly, it’s never too late (and you're never too old) to make a change in your life.

I am the writer, the director, and the star of the movie of my life. Me. Not my circumstances, not karma, not any other person. Me. 

What does your script look like?

You know you can rewrite it if you want to too, right?



Transform yourself. LIVE the life that you are meant to live.
