Bridgit Norris

  1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?

Hey!!! My name is Bridgit Norris, Bridgit Norris Coaching. I am a small town girl who moved to the land of sun, sand & palm trees! I live in Sunny South Florida and have for about 24 years.

2. What is your business about?
I am a Coach, Speaker, Business Strategist & Mentor for Girls.
As a result of my coaching, speaking & mentoring women and girls have become unshackled from the stories that are keeping them stuck. They have created rock solid self belief & self-worth and transformed their stories to use their voice to create lasting change in their lives and the lives of those they were put here to serve. I believe that no matter what obstacles life may throw at you, or what your roots look like, you have the power to write your own ending.
Watching women and girls create confidence & courage that fills their souls so full that they boldly feel free to express who they are with their story, is what fills my soul.

3. What made you get into this line of business?
I stepped out of a corporate job making 6 figures to a lesser more flexible job to allow my husband the ability to grow his career. It felt freeing at first. Until I woke up daily with my son needing me less, my husband flourishing in success and me feeling like something was missing. I felt a pull to get back the feeling of success & accomplishment but had no idea what or how to get there. I also started feeling ashamed. Why did I want more, I have an amazing life. I started to explore everything, MLM after MLM. I failed at all of them. Nothing felt right. I decided to take my love of fitness to the next level and became a personal trainer for women. I started teaching classes until I opened up my own company called Fierce Fitness. I loved changing women’s lives through health but it became so much more. The power of mindset and watching women transform they way the viewed themselves. They became fierce in all areas of their lives. I knew at that point….I found my souls purpose. I closed Fierce Fitness last year and have never looked back.

4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
I get up every morning to the thought – Who can I impact today?
It’s the possibility of changing the life of just one woman who fuels me daily.
Yes…I love morning power routines! Right now in my Facebook group we are doing a 30 Day Challenge to really amp up our routines and create massive action through the feelings of this routine. It looks like this:
6am Wake Up: 20-30 Mins Yoga
Self Love Soak in the Shower
This is a practice of closing your eyes and allowing yourself to receive what YOU need today. What you need to serve from a FULL cup. Whatever word, thought or feeling comes to mind is what you insure you receive.
Connecting to the Feeling
Find that feeling in your body of the woman you want to become. The business you want to have to. The relationships you want to have. Visualize – close your eyes. Imagine so deeply you can see it – hear it – smell it. Now hold that feeling in your body. What does it feel like?
That is the feeling I access EVERY MORNING .
10 DAILY DREAMS
You will write out your 10 daily dreams every morning. AS IF YOU ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED THEM.
I take action daily from this state of being everyday.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
The best advice I have ever been given is to always, always trust yourself. You have all the answers inside of you, you need no one elses approval.

6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
I am such a book hoarder that I can’t even decide on one. I love Byron Katie’s work, I also have a special place in my heart for Reform your Inner Mean Girl as I received certification training in this area. But I would tell anyone – read everything that interests you, and if you purchase a book that you can’t get into put it down, you’re not ready to receive the message. But you will be.

She Steps Up – The Vision!

I have spoken with so many amazing people recently and I have come to a point where my vision for this blog and life is so bloody powerful I need to share it with you!

Let me share with you why I started She Steps Up and how I got the name. I was in a pretty crappy place, I had no energy, no passion, and felt like I was like Alice in Wonderland just going down that rabbit hole but the only thing was I just kept falling and falling.

I started this blog as an outlet for my sanity, I needed someone to talk with, somewhere I could just let off steam. As a wife, step mum to child with anger issues and mental health issues on a full-time basis and so on I realised that no matter what is going on in my life I always STEP UP! I am there for everyone, when they need me. Then I realised that there are so many women who Step Up daily. This is when Women Of Wisdom was established.

I realised I have so many amazing women around me that need to be shared with the world, I wanted to create a place to show them off and a place where people who are lost, feeling down, need to be inspired can see these women and get help.

I have had so much success with this blog and am so grateful for everyone who is sharing it, spreading the word and being featured. I want to take it further! I mean one of the ladies I have featured is being interviewed on the Jenny McCarthy Show yes the ex playboy model, actress, who is now married to Donnie Wahlberg…. Amazing!! I am so proud of her and also so amazed that she wanted to be part of my blog.

So what is coming up…..

I am in talks with a designer for some amazing designs for merchandise which I plan to get out by October I am so excited about this.

I am looking into working with some charities to help women, to raise awareness for things like sexual abuse, menstruation, cervical cancer, education etc.

I would really love to turn women of wisdom into a book, so women can have these women on their shelves for reference.

So in order to do this and reach more people, and be able to give back to charity and keep this going I have made the decision that from 1st September any new Women Of Wisdom features will have a small charge of £30/$39, my reason behind this is that I take time out of my paying work to do these features, I want to be able to continue to grow this and make it amazing, to get more exposure for these amazing women so in order to do this I will need to pay for designers, advertising etc.

My main mission is to give back, and empower women!

So if you would like to be a feature as a Women Of Wisdom please complete the Application Form

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I can not believe the success we have had and I am so proud of each and every one of you.

Never give up, always believe.

Have a wonderful day.

As a Transformational Mindset Coach, I help transform people’s negative self-talk into positive self-empowerment believing they are ENOUGH! How do I do this? I take them through my proven 5 Step program that will move you from struggle to STRENGTH.

Whether you are looking to transform your physical health, career, relationships or just needing to find that one thing that makes you excited to get out of bed every morning, your mindset is key. The most SATISFYING part of the work I do is when you begin to work through the limiting beliefs and fears that hold you back.

I will help you reveal and clear hidden sabotaging patterns and blocks, help you figure out why you might be stuck, what is missing in your life and why you are not happy. I will help you create better strategies and will help you to identify and strengthen healthy habits. You will walk out with the confidence and clarity you need to BOLDLY take the next big step in your life.

I have successfully transformed every area of my life using my proven 5 Step System and I am now living a vibrant beautiful life. A life where I truly believe I am ENOUGH.

Being a mental health therapist, coach, business owner and speaker has taught me a great deal personally and professionally about the positive effects of embracing good health and positive mindset. My passion and purpose in life is to inspire others to live healthier. Mind. Body. Soul.

4.What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?

I actually talk about this in detail in my book . Morning routines can be really helpful. Your rituals keep you committed. When you create a morning ritual, you reduce the amount of choices you have to make—saving your precious mental energy for bigger, brighter things. Some of the things that are included in my morning routine include:

Fuel your body. Drink three full glasses of water.

Gratitude. Simply close your eyes. Put your hand on your heart, and visualize 3-5 things/people you are grateful for. Another option is to write a gratitude list in your journal.

Affirmations. Repeat out loud at least five positive self-statements that you believe about yourself (download the Top 100 Positive Affirmations at: http://www.missionstrengthsd.com/affirmations).

Manifestation. Make a dedication for the day. This could be an emotional state you want to bring forth within you (courage, love, patience, gratitude) or a higher intention for the 24 hours ahead of you (to show kindness, face fears, or focus on your goals). Refer to the Questions to Empower Your Day in the appendix section of this book for more ideas on how to manifest each day!

5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?

The last chapter of my life has not been written yet. I can allow someone to write it for me or I can chose to take control of my life and create the most beautiful ending I could ever imagine. The choice is mine.

6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?

I recently published a book called You Are Enough: 5 Steps To Move From Struggle To Strength which was the #1 New Release on Amazon and also where I was able to make Best Seller so of course I would day this a book everyone must read

Book on Beach

7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

I am currently offering a 30 minute Discovery session for $27.99. I will also be hosting a webinar in the coming months .
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

Over the past 20+ years of working in the mental health field and doing my own personal mindset work, I have done a ton of reading on belief systems, self-esteem, and self-image. I can’t hide the fact that this is one of my favorite topics to speak about and to teach my cli- ents. Honestly, it is one of the main reasons I wrote this book. Human beings struggle each day with what we say to ourselves.

If we take a minute to think about our own negative self-talk—both consciously and subconsciously—in a day, it is astounding! Why is it so easy for us to say something nice to someone else, but we can’t do the same for ourselves? Why is loving ourselves so hard at times? The key is to be able to identify those negative thoughts, acknowledge them, and then to immediately replace the thoughts with something positive. This is what I call thought stopping.

Grounding is another technique I use frequently. Grounding is where you rely upon special skills and techniques to gain control over your emotions so that you don’t do something that you will regret. Secondly, grounding yourself gives you a new perspective of the current situation. It is basically reality checking your thoughts and proving your negative thoughts wrong. I provide a lot of grounding examples on my website as well as in my book!

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I have been in the helping field for over 20 years. I absolutely love what I do because I have the amazing opportunity to share in someone’s transformation. I get to watch someone emerge from their struggles into their strength! My passion and purpose in helping others is to help people build confidence, find clarity in getting what they truly want in life, and for them to get inspired to take action towards building the life of their dreams!

My hope and prayers are that for anyone who finds themselves in times of struggle, that they are able to come to the realisation and acceptance that no matter what happens in life, they are enough!

She Steps Up Coaching!

I am so excited to share this with you all.

I really feel that I am being guided within my work at the moment and the energy I have is incredible but let me tell you that life has not always been like this.

I have been through so much which I have started to share with the world, as you know and am now at a place where I can start to help others from the pain I suffered.  Last year I invested over £3000 in myself in order to better myself, so I could help myself get out of the massive hole I was in. This included getting a coach, doing my life coaching diploma, investing in so many books that I could start a small library.

I got in debt but it was worth it as now I am in such an amazing place and moving forward, I am also doing something I love to do. I do not advise getting in debt, but for me it is what I had to do to get me here.

I have gone through the loss of a baby, loss of a business, loss of becoming a mum to my own child, loss of a very special person, crippling illness, not knowing what the hell I am meant to do with my life.

I have had to become a mum over night to someone I had spent no longer than 2 weeks with before, I have had to help him with his mental health, his anger and even home schooling him to help him. I have to do all of this why being a loving wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and so on. Why doing the housework and being a mum and dad when my husband is away with work.

The above is only part of my story.

But through this I have gained so many life skills, so many tactics to help me cope, and also become someone who knows quite a lot about finding passion and the things that make you happy in life. I a so grateful that I am now able to help others do the same.

This is why I have decided to set up She Steps Up Coaching for Empowered Women. I want to be able to reach out and help women who have been where I have and help them see that they can be the best mum ever, the best wife ever, start that business, earn the money they want to take their kids for dinner, or to Disney World. I want to make these women believe in themselves. The way I believe in them.

I want to do this but in an affordable way, as I know how much coaches can cost and I appreciate their value but I know that some people can’t afford that but need the help. Why am I charging anything at all? well I need to earn so that I can reach these people and grow She Steps Up to the best it can be. I have visions of creating an area where women can get as much FREE information as possible for me to do that I need to pay for services, more training, etc. So it made sense to charge for my services.

So for the small fee of £50 you get 1 hour of my dedicated time. We can go through it all and get you set up to get moving forward. After that my coaching calls will increase to £100 for 90 minutes.

If you would like to book your call with me you can do at She Steps Up Coaching.

I can’t wait to start talking to these amazing women and show them how special they really are. You are amazing and you deserve to life the best life you can.

Have a wonderful day.

My Very First Podcast Interview!

A week go I had the pleasure of being interview for the amazing Rebecca Cross’s Podcast Stepping Into Greatness!

I was quite nervous as I do still find certain things difficult to talk about especially my grandfather’s passing and things with Ethan because it is still so raw. I am working through it all and I am as you know in the process of writing my book, where I go into everything a lot more. To put it into perspective I find it so hard to talk about losing my grandfather still that I either do not bring it up, I keep the sentence short, or when writing my chapter about it I take a week off.

I also skimmed a few things about my past as it would have been such along audio and take a month to record… I’m serious it would have been so long you would have got bored. Good news you can read it in my book!

Rebecca was so amazing though we had a chat before we started and she has such an amazing energy that we ended up really clicking, I know this is just the beginning of our friendship and working relationship.

Although finding certain things awkward to talk about and the fact I was a little nervous  I found it quite an empowering thing to do, I also realised that my story needs to be told because if it helps just one person that is one person whose life I have changed. I have been through so much and grown stronger each time, I get kicked down and come back twice as strong when some would have given up.

I am currently putting together following some amazing advice from Rebecca the She Steps Up course, I am looking to design this course so women can access it over and over. I am also going to be doing calls and 1:1 coaching to reach out and help more women, details to follow.

I have so many ideas on where to take the She Steps Up movement! Sometimes it takes an uncomfortable step with somebody who has an outside perspective to show you how amazing you really are.

This podcast is just the start of it all, and I am so excited to take you all with me on this journey. If you would like to listen to Rebecca and myself, plus all of her other Podcasts then please go to Stepping Into Greatness.

I would love to know what you think?

Have a wonderful day.

5 Tips how you can start earning money today!

I wanted to share with you today some new career options or side hustle options you can start today with little lay out and start earning straight away. In my time I have tried these and they do work.

  1. Arts and Crafts

Do you have a talent or skill you could put to use, there are literally hundreds of craft sites on Facebook that you can use to sell you work. Etsy is a great place to create a shop and get people buying from you on a regular basis and from all over the world, it is also really easy to set up and manage.

2. Dog Walking and Pet Sitting 

If you are like me and love animals then this is for you, this is also one of the cheapest businesses you can start-up. I had my dog walking business for a year and was bringing in a regular income each month. Most families have a pet of some sort and are always looking for reliable people to look after their pets when they are at work or when they go on holiday. Make sure you invest in some good water proof clothing, poop bags, treats, and good footwear too!

3. Network Marketing

Not everyone’s cup of tea but it is a very good way to make money and it can change lives I have seen it happen to a lot of people I know. I have also done this and if you do all the training and put the effort in you will be rewarded very well for your efforts. The investments can be anything from Free to £300, I would just say make sure you find a product and company you love, and look at the plan. Do the research and you will be fine.

4. Virtual Assistant

If like me you love organisation and writing this is for you. As we are in an age where so many people are creating six figure online businesses they are wanting to hire people to help them with their work. There is a great course and website for all VA advice The VA Handbook  as a virtual assistant you can charge hourly rates so if you get regular work his can become a very lucrative business.

5. Coaching & Teaching

Do you love helping people, maybe you are really skilled in social media. Then coaching could be for you, if you have something that can help change people’s lives or businesses people will pay you to help them. You can offer small courses, masterclasses and then one to one coaching. It is also a very profitable business and I know a lot of coaches which earn six figures a month.

I would love to know if you have any other tips or business ideas that cost little to start but you can earn big with. Have you tried any of the above?

Have a wonderful day.

Why you should always believe in yourself!

I have realised recently how I long I spent believing what others thought about me and not listening or believing in myself, I have also realised how amazing life is when you start to believe in yourself.

When I was a child I use to have so much imagination, If I wanted to be a singer I would sing, a dancer I would dance. No one would stop me, I never cared if anyone told me that I could not do it, their opinion did not matter as I had such a determination and abundance of self belief that I would just carry on and do it.

I can not pin point when in my life when this stopped! I have spent so long listening to others, as an example I did not go to London School of Fashion despite being head hunted because I believed that my boyfriend at the time would have left me. I believed that I had to get a job as I needed an income in order to do well in life. How many of you can relate?

The sad truth about the above is that he dumped me anyway, the next is that I could have been the best fashion designer in the world and never need to work or worry about money. You just don’t know and my point here is that when I was a child I didn’t ever think about the outcome I just went for it.

I realised this year that I am someone who is not meant to work for someone else, every job I have had I have always felt I can do their job better, or I would not treat my staff or clients like that. I also hate being told what to do, my mother pointed this out to me when I came up with a new career option ” I am going to join the Army” no idea why I thought that was the answer.

So the point I am at now in my life is that I have worked out what I don’t want, the things I do want, what it is I love to do (not Like, LOVE), and I am not someone who is suited to the 9-5 or working or working for someone else. I have worked out that I have passion, skills, and I can use these and I can help people. I have also realised I should not limit myself to anything.

If I don’t know how to do something I commit to learning all about it, I also do not want to have someone work out how much I am worth I think that is a hideous thought. My husband as an example has worked for 48 hours straight but will get paid for 8am – 5pm because that is his wage, he is worth so much more.

If I could package up his skills and make him see this potential, he would be making a fortune if he could see what I see. I have belief in myself that I am worth more, and worked hard on creating the mindset I had when I was a child that If I believe it, If I keep doing it, work hard and keep believing it will happen. Who cares what anyone else thinks.

Does this make sense?

I do want to tell you that since I have started living like this and believing in myself I have had so many people reach out to me, so many opportunities come my way, and I feel so positive about the future for my business, my family and myself.

I really wish I could show you all what amazing potential you have in yourself and how amazing your life could be, if you believe.

I just wanted to share this with you all, as it was quite a breakthrough in my life and has changed everything. So let me ask you, what did you use to believe? what do you believe now? and lastly if you did not give two monkeys about what others think what would you be doing now?

I would love to hear your thoughts.

Have a wonderful day.

Changes I Made This Week

This week has been such an amazing week. I have not had a week like it in quite sometime but I know this is just the start of things to come.

I have implemented a few new things to my day which will help me move forward in life and business, which I would love to share with you.

  1.  Getting up 1 hour earlier 
  2. Writing down my dream annual earning, every single day in my diary. 
  3. Saying in my head 5,4,3,2,1 before reacting to anything. 
  4. making a to-do list of at least 5 things every night that I need to do the next day and not stopping until it is done. 

This isn’t rocket science but it has had a massive impact on my creativity, my work ethic and the energy I have been putting into anything I do. I feel a lot more in-control of everything as well, and I believe that these are moves that any person in business or life could benefit from doing daily.

I picked up all these tips from motivational speeches I have been listening to why working, I figure if these people are successful and this is what they do then it must work. It does!

I have also finally felt inspired and motivated to write my book!  This is a very exciting but very scary process it is already bringing up some emotions, but I am getting it all down as I know that it will help a lot of women.

I have set a goal to do 300 words every day on the book but I am getting about 1000 out a day as it is just pouring out of me like therapy, I have already cried a lot too. It is amazing all the things you don’t think that are inspiring or important but are actually relevant to the bigger picture so need to be told. I really do hope that readers will like it, and it can really help empower women that is my goal anyway.

This week I also did my very first Podcast Interview it was so scary and very emotional, I ended up really enjoying it and will share more with you once it is released.

Let me know if you try any of the above tips in the comments section.

Have a wonderful day.

How to create your own magic!

Today I felt inspired to talk to you all about the beauty of creating your own magic in life. Something I have started to do which has turned everything around, and shown me how amazing life really can be!

The first thing I have started to do is every morning which is my power routing I have discussed this previously My New Morning Routine I do this every day without fail!! This has changed my mindset and gets me ready for the day ahead, my mood has improved, plus I feel like I can cope with almost anything that is thrown at me.

The next thing is doing what I love and being true to myself, I realised that I am a creative person and the jobs I was doing before where not allowing me to be my creative self so I sacked that off and took a leap of faith and believed in myself.

Being grateful, this is something I do all day everyday! Even if it’s something really small like finding my fave sandwich on offer I am grateful for it. Gratitude puts you on a higher vibration the more grateful you are the more stuff you find to be grateful for.

Manifesting and journal-ling this I don’t do every day but I am always working towards the things I want to manifest and bring into my life. If you do not know what manifesting is then let me explain it is thinking about, visualising, and seeing yourself in the life you want as though it has already happened.

At the end of the day I give thanks, thanks for everything I have the people around me, I ask that all my family and friends are OK and looked after. I also ask that I continue to be guided on my path, and give thanks for the opportunities coming my way.

It really works!!

I have to say the magic works quick too! Last night I was writing in my journal about a new feature I would like to do for this blog and at 9am this morning I had two people contact me about just that…. AMAZING!

So how could you start to bring a little magic into your life? Let me know what you try and see how quick it works for you.

Have a wonderful day.
