About Ayesha Hilton

Ayesha Hilton is  an author, speaker, transformation facilitator, mother, and spiritual adventurer.

In 2016, she and her then husband, Nick Shady, had their book published called Who Gets the Farm A Practical Guide for Farm Succession Planning. Nick is a farmer, and as a couple, they were concerned about the impact that a lack of farm succession planning was having on the family farming sector. See the website for farming families for more information: www.familyfarming.com.

In 2015, Ayesha was a contributing author to a number of anthology books.

With a diverse professional background across many industries, Ayesha has skills in business strategy, marketing, and communications. She has professional qualifications that include a Bachelor of Communications in Professional Writing, Graduate Certificate in Virtual Communications, and Certificate in Workplace Training and Assessment.

With a love of travel that started at an early age, Ayesha have traveled, trained and worked in seven countries including places such as the United State of America, Nepal, Laos, Burma, and Papua New Guinea.

As a young teenager, Ayesha dreamed of being an Aid Worker in third world countries. So after she finished her degree, she applied for a posting with Australian Volunteers International. She was sent to the northern city of Chiang Mai, where she worked with Thai sex workers running an education program. She then worked with Burmese refugees.

After returning to Australia, Ayesha worked for Sausage Software and then Accenture. She also continued to work for a number of non-profit organizations. Since the birth of her first child in 2006, Ayesha has run her own business.

As a child growing up in suburban Australia, Ayesha was always the odd one out. Her mother was a single parent of four children to three different fathers. This was well before it was acceptable to be an unmarried mother, let alone a single parent with multiple fathers. Ayesha’s mother became a Buddhist around the time Ayesha was born and she was bought up with Buddhism as a way of life.

When she was about nine, she went to live in the northern Indian town of Dharamsala so her mother could study with his Holiness the Dalia Lama. This was back in the early 1980s, well before the Dalai Lama so well know. Ayesha’s little brother, Louie, even became a monk and lived in the Dalai Lama’s compound.

Ayesha loved my life in India and was sad to return to Australia. Living in India suited her at the time and she  was happy that people could pronounce my name. Her family is still Buddhist, but Ayesha has added her own beliefs to the Buddhist philosophy of life.

Gratitude is the most powerful force in Ayesha’s life. She knows  she is blessed: she lives in a safe and clean country, she has money, car, house. But most importantly, she has family, friends and clients that she loves and who love her back.
