I imagine life is pretty hectic. You pack a lot into a day.
There are schedules, to do lists, places to be and emails to answer.
Simply keeping life ticking over and keeping everyone happy requires a lot of energy.
Throw in generating income, remaining professional and consistent and working on your ‘dream life’, there is little wiggle room.
I have a little story for you…
In a nutshell, I was pretty miserable. I had lost my confidence. I felt ‘behind’ all my friends. I was just going through the motions. I had always been determined and focused, but my self doubt kept overshadowing my drive.
I knew it was down to me to change it. I was getting so bored of my own victim story… as I’m sure my friends and family were too. I had to start small and with a piece of paper and a pen.
Even doing this exercise started to shift things. It felt really lovely to move all the spinning thoughts from my head onto the paper in front of me. However as soon as I did, fear set in.
It now felt real. I knew I had to do something about it. I couldn’t ignore it any longer.
I could continue to whinge but I knew that wasn’t going to help matters.
It turns out, I didn’t need to worry so much. I broke down the big old pieces and….
As I reflect on that time, I feel so proud of myself.
However what I notice is that didn’t take extraordinary action. I didn’t have to go and be blessed in Bali and find myself (although if that works for you-do it) or change my diet drastically and only eat round things or run a marathon. In fact, the first thing I did was simply decide.
I didn’t wait until 1st January. Or until I knew all the answers. I simply made the decision to figure it out. My mentor Marie Forleo shares this wonderful phrase
‘Everything is figureoutable’ - it is one I come back to daily.
I now have a three year old and another baby on the way and I am expanding again- not just physically(!) but entering into a new chapter of my business. I am committed to finding ways to thrive throughout the next few years, not just survive. And no, I haven’t been one of those lucky ones whose baby just sleeps for hours on end…far from it!
I know you have big dreams too. I know you want to create a life full of all the elements that feel like you, that suit your personality and your circumstances.
I have a love/hate relationship with the self development world- I love the options and the inspiration it provides. The digital world and the introduction of the internet has transformed the way many of us can run our businesses and lives.
However too often I see ‘dream lives’ looking very similar. Exotic travel, first class flights, big designer shopping bags and yes I like all of those things too.
BUT when I build my ‘big picture’ vision, I know there are other elements I want to incorporate.
e.g family time that is quality and not interrupted by phones. Flexibility to create my own schedule. To be able to work remotely so I can care for those that need me.
I have coached over 1000 clients and there is a never a one size fits all. They are all looking to create a unique life. Some have small children (or big children). Some have parents that are undergoing health issues that require support. Some want to live in a variety of different locations throughout the world. Some want to earn brilliantly but still remain an introvert. Some want to create many income streams, many of which are completely passive.
(Obviously I still feel about 17 and a half in my head)
I have found a way to make peace with these mistakes and reframe them as ‘lessons’…through the ugly cries :)
These days I do believe I had to go through all of these stages as I know first hand what those sensations and tricky times look and feel like. If you are experiencing any of those, I understand and I can assure you there will be a way to move forward.
This is truly your time to shake things up and step up to the next level. There is no need for you to feel stuck, broke, overwhelmed and overstretched. It all starts by knowing what you want.
I like to start here so we can see what is working and what isn’t and what is the best route forward. Imagine you have squeezed into a parallel parking situation… you have a good look around in all your mirrors and windows before you set off… you don’t just wang into first gear, slam on the accelerator and hope for the best.
It is crucial that you build the life and business that is right for you. So often I have worked with clients who simply replace their corporate job with their passion gig and then alarmingly realise they have no freedom, flexibility or cash flow. We do some deep work here and it will be great way of aligning everything.
This module will help you step into the next version of yourself in an easy and practical way. So often, we believe we won’t be able to do things until we are a certain way. We can in fact begin now and will be much easier than you think. Slow and steady action…
For me ‘success’ is never about working every hour… I used to listen to those entrepreneurs talking about how they ‘smashed’ their goals by getting up at 4am and working at peak performance until 11pm. Most them often claimed to have families too…
I want you to have space in your life to do all the things that make you happy and fulfilled. I want to show you how you can bring ease and flow and simplicity in your business.
Yikes, this has been the most game changing piece of my business…working consistently on my mindset. When I was a curly haired ginger girl at school, there certainly wasn’t a ‘dream big’ mentality. More like ‘keep your head down, your mouth shut, your voice shushed and blend in’
I know we should all be resilient to what has gone on before…however it can be difficult as many words, situations, ‘feedback’ is ingrained deep within us and becomes part of our character… whether we consciously know it or not.
Here I will help you gently unpick stories or beliefs that are no longer matched or serve you and find ways to reframe them in a way that feels good.
This is a great opportunity to do an analysis of how your ‘in person’ business is working. There may be a few surprises along the way. Again it is the perfect opportunity to uplevel, increase your prices and create more impact whilst maintaining ease and flow.
I don’t just want you to earn income that requires you to be in the room. In fact a consistent flow of passive income is pretty game changing. This module will provide plenty of inspiration and a selection of options to support you to build a comprehensive plan of action.
The prospect of ‘sussing technology’ can be so stifling- where to start? Will it work? Will it be manageable? Often we can carry the belief of ‘I would never be able to do that’ but as with lots of my work, I will help you to simplify and work through methodically.
I see a lot of copy cats in the industry…those who are simply following a framework. What I want to help you to do is to identify what your truth USP is. Being generic in a busy online world is no longer going to cut it… I know this can seem a huge task especially as we can think everything has been done before. Don’t worry it hasn’t and there will be so many people who will be thrilled to hear directly from you.
Creating leads, customers and connections can challenge parts of our personality. We don’t want to feel like we are being sleazy or salesy. Don’t worry you won’t become either. This is about being genuine, authentic, of service and doing business your way.
