Ellie Jackson

 

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

My name is Ellie Jackson and I am a children’s author, beach cleaner, environmental campaigner and mother of four young children. I write children’s books for primary and preschool children about the problem of ocean plastic and inspire them to get involved in helping their communities to tackle the issue.

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

As a mother of 4 little ones, I am still in the throes of early morning starts yet as a self-employed mumpreneur I am up often up working late. This naturally leaves me with several challenges – mainly lack of sleep, chaotic routine and stressful mornings. My children have adapted beautifully to this way of life, mainly because it suits them to ignore everything I ask and leave everything until the last minute at which point I am glad for the peace and quiet when they are finally off to pre-school and school. This is the time where I can get most of my creative work done and I relish the empty house to focus on my work.

3.What made you get into this line of business?

I have always had a strong love for nature and the environment, studying Environmental Science at University and then going on to teach Geography at secondary school. It is only recently however after writing my true books on ocean plastic, that I have developed my passion for campaigning and raising awareness amongst others.

4.Your favourite quote?

It is a famous quote “Do what you love and  you will never work another day in your life” that has finally found resonance with me after many years of battling in jobs I have not been truly inspired by. The books have brought all of my interests into one place as I am combining education, nature and children into one and I now have such strong motivation to see these reach as many children as possible.

 

A lot of my time is spent visiting schools and delivering free assemblies – I have spoken to over 10,000 children in the last year, doing a book reading and follow up discussion. There is nothing more fantastic for me to see than a whole hall full of 450 children all cheering for paper straws and beach cleans. I firmly believe that our best chance in helping save our planet from the many environmental challenges we are facing is to educate our children and therefore I would recommend everyone to use these books to teach and encourage the next generation before it is too late.

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

I have just released my third book, Nelson’s Dangerous Dive about a humpback whale who gets trapped in ghost fishing nets and this now completes my set of three books on ocean plastic. I have three more exciting and true stories which will be released in 2019 where the focus will shift to consider the issues of palm oil, pesticide use and climate change.

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

I am incredibly lucky to live by the sea in beautiful Cornwall where there are so many people in the beach cleaning and conservation community that by surrounding myself with these local heroes I find amazing inspiration for the books and to reach out into primary and preschools. If I am ever feeling like a change in direction or if I need a break I head out into nature for a walk either on the beach or along the river, usually ending up picking up plastic along the way.

7. What do you love most about helping others?

The knowledge that I can do something to help tackle the issue, even if it is just a few pieces of rubbish, helps me to focus on what is important and reminds me that our individual actions can collectively make a difference. I love the quote “A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step” or as I like to say “To clean the ocean of plastic starts with picking up just a single piece.”

Emma Bowyer

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

Hi I’m Emma and I’m from Cheshire but now live on Waiheke Island just off the coast of mainland Auckland New Zealand. I have been here 14 years and love it. I have 3 beautiful children Mr I’m a Ninja 7 and 3-year-old twinadoes.

I am a copywriter Emma Bowyer-The Word Whisperer NZ and am working on developing my own writing and blogging into my full time business. I have had a couple of articles published this year  and  launched my blog  Don’t Put Peas Up Your Nose written from the point of view of my twins all about the things they do and the silly big people getting in their way.

  1. What is your business about?

Writing a funny and light hearted blog that will make other mums roll their eyes in recognition and laugh snort at some of the crazy antics the twinadoes and their brother get up to. Occasionally I’m allowed to chip in but that’s not that often usually I’m just a figure to be ridiculed or escaped from.

20180511_123033.jpg

  1. What made you get into this line of business?

I regularly perform comedy and improvisation, with the occasional bit of stand up thrown in. When my kids came on the scene I couldn’t stop talking about them and realised they were comedy gold after telling a few stories friends about their antics like when my 9 month old daughter threw herself out of her cot to escape the tedium of nap time and gave herself a black eye, and they told me I should write that stuff down, so now I do.

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

I get up as soon as my alarm threatens to ring and slide out of bed like a SAS sniper to get to the bathroom and into the shower before my twinadoes realise it’s morning and start screaming for me and if I don’t move quickly enough tearing their room to pieces. Then if I’m really winning I have time to make a quick cup of decaf tea (I know I’m a saint)  lol. Before the morning wars begin.

20180216_200206

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

To ask myself when I’m stressed and at freak out point (so that’s about 23 times a day). Will this matter  in 5 years or even 5 months time? Will I even remember it? And if not to ‘Let it Go! Let it Go!’

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

For all pregnant Mummas I’d say you have to read  Up the Duff: The real guide to pregnancy it is hilarious and full of fun facts by Kaz Cooke

For twin Mummas the incredibly useful book

‘What to do when you’re having two’ by Natalie Diaz

20181031_162139(0).jpg

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

If you subscribe to my Don’t Put Peas Up Your Nose list I’ll be your best friend forever and promise never to share your secret ‘Mum guilts’ with anyone else. Unless you ask me to and then I’ll drink tea and eat chocolate with you till you feel better.

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

I stop and breathe and think how incredibly blessed I am to have my  three wonderful kids. Unless it’s because of them driving me mad that I need a mindset change, then it’s ‘thank God I’ve got my secret stash of chocolate hidden in the cupboard’.

 

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

Seeing people smile. That’s why I write my blog to help other twin mums that might feel isolated and alone. If I can help them see that yes it is a really hard job being a twin Mama but it’s also the best club in the world to belong to. And that the funny side is always there, you just have to recognise it. Even if your 3-year-old twin daughter is caught hanging out of her bedroom window instead of napping and you have to call the fire brigade. True story. I can laugh now.

 

  1. Your favourite quote?

‘Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you’re gonna get’. Forrest Gump And in my case that was after multiple IVF treatments finding out I was having twins! Shocked? I couldn’t speak for about 2 hours and for me that’s saying something.

Thanks Emma for sharing your business and story with us if you would like to see more from Emma please go to Wordwhisperer Website or Her Blog

Stacey Matthews

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

Hey I’m Stacey I am 28, wife to Dan a lorry driver and mum to 4 beautiful boys, lover of Cake and a good cuppa and a self-confessed journaling addict from Shropshire UK.

And my business is called Becoming Mum.

  1. What is your business about?

Becoming Mum is a platform for mum’s to come together on their own unique motherhood journeys to support encourage and empower each other to recreate and embrace the U in Mum. I use personal development, mindset and positive relationship coaching to help women rediscover who they are again after becoming mum’s.

  1. What made you get into this line of business?

After becoming a mum I felt a huge loss of identity and was completely overwhelmed by everything that comes with being a mum, wife and running a household. I had quit my job to be a stay at home mum and felt like a failure. I knew I wanted to be more than just a mum and this riddled me with guilt because being a mum is the most amazing thing in the world, so why would I need to be anything more?

I delved into the world of personal development and quickly realised that if I wanted things to change in my life, I was the first thing that needed to change and so went through a process of personal growth and development to rediscover who I was behind my mum title. I retrained in personal development and positive relationship coaching and made it my mission to support all of the mum’s out there that are feeling just like I felt and so Becoming Mum was created!

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

Other than my 4 little sleep stealers hehe, the calling of my kettle…truth be told, I am not really a morning person. my power routine is to just get up as soon as the alarm goes off or the kids come in, get up, put some happy music on, make a coffee and get on with the start of the day don’t snooze the alarm or send the kids back to bed just get up and go!

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

Don’t compare yourself, it’s a pretty simple concept but it’s so important especially on social media  because you only see the highlight reel you don’t see what’s going on behind the camera.

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

Girl wash your face by Rachel Hollis or You are a badass by Jen Sincero both really good inspirational and motivational reads.

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

We have our 21 Day Self Discovery Programme Launched which you can still access and I am set to launch our Group Beyond Mumma Programme for mum’s who are lost and overwhelmed with being just a mum and want rediscover, recreate and reconnect to the women beyond the mumma title.

I also offer personalised 1-2-1 mentoring programmes for women in all stages of motherhood from those thinking of Becoming a Mum but aren’t sure if it’s the right time, to those whose children have left home and they are wondering what now?

To access the 21 Day Self Discovery Programme or For Details on any of the other programmes you can  join our Becoming Mum FB community https://www.facebook.com/groups/537579106592853/

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

I stop, breathe and think of things that I am grateful for in that moment. Gratitude or remembering how blessed I am to be where I am at that time instantly grounds me and gives me the kick up the bum to reframe my thinking.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

I LOVE seeing women empowered and confident. Knowing that when they connect and nurture the relationship they have with themselves they can build stronger connections and nurture more positive relationships with those they love.

Happy Mums make Happy Children and a Happy Wife is a Happy Life hehe!

  1. Your favourite quote?

Oh gosh there are so many but right now Id say

Not until we are lost, do we begin to understand ourselves by Henry David Thoreau

Katie Silverthorne

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

I’m Katie Silverthorne. I was born in London but I now live in Portishead, just outside Bristol – which I ADORE. My business is Memory Zoo.

2.What is your business about?

At Memory Zoo we make keepsakes for people from their precious clothing to help then remember a special person, event or time in their lives.

28059282_10156363073456189_2565814448082662150_n

3. What made you get into this line of business?

I started the business entirely by accident. I made a keepsake bear for my daughter when she was about 1 as I couldn’t bear to put all her beautiful baby clothes into the attic and never see them again. I wanted a more visual reminder of her baby years so used her clothes to make a bear. I put pictures of her bear onto Facebook for my friends to see and very quickly people started asking the question, ‘Can you make me one?’ And Memory Zoo was born.

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

Eggs! I get up and eat three scrambled eggs for breakfast. Everyday without fail. I don’t have a more complex routine than that! Although after I drop my daughter at school I usually go for a run (health permitting) – even just a few km – which really gets my blood moving, brain functioning, stress out of my system and my whole being ready to work. I am a little grumpy if I miss my run!

28958440_10155093420236396_6710800178531532800_n

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

I have two things that have always resonated with me. The first is, ‘People massively overestimate what they can achieve in a year but massively underestimate what they can achieve in a decade.’ This helps me to remember that everything doesn’t have to happen right now this minute! And working towards a big goal does take years. There’s no such thing as an overnight success. Everything that we have ever done and every decision we have ever made have led us to this point in time. I aim not to waste a single moment of my life and my learning.
My second one is the acronym – F.A.I.L. – First Attempt In Learning. I LOVE this and hold it dear to me when my crazy ideas don’t work out or take root the first time. I put them down, refresh the vision and try again. Everything is about learning. I aim to be a better person tomorrow than I am today. When I am lying on my death-bed I do not want to look back and think, ‘I wish I had been braver.’

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

I have so many books that I love! Can I have more than one please?! ‘Sapiens’ by Yuval Noah Haraji; ‘Real Artists Don’t Starve’ by Jeff Goins and ‘Still Live With Woodpecker’ by Tom Robbins. The last one is one of my favourite books of all time and was given to me by a complete stranger on a train when I was 17. I should also mention ‘Pyramids’ by Terry Pratchett. This was the first book that I actually chose myself (wasn’t told to read by an adult) and I laughed so hard I cried. I realised in the moment of reading it that I would have a life long love affair with books, writing and words.

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

I don’t have any offers but I will be releasing some new products very soon so keep your eyes peeled to see what they are. I don’t ever discount my Memory Zoo keepsakes as each one is a bespoke, hand-made item and people have to join a waiting list to get them. The waiting list is currently 7 months long and growing constantly! I do offer a £5 discount though to everyone who orders two animals at the same time. There is also no waiting list if you would like to have something made in honour of someone who has passed away. I understand how instrumental the keepsakes can be for dealing with grief and it’s unrealistic to make people who are suffering emotionally to wait such a long time for their keepsake.

8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

RUN! That is my go to. If I can’t do that then I listen to motivating songs, take the dog for a walk, do some jumping jacks or stand in front of the mirror and give myself a motivational speech! Really! 😀 Sometimes I feel that I need to have a gentler word with myself and in those moments I shower myself with loving words. I allow all pain, grief and illness to pass away from me whilst I bask in the feelings of self acceptance and love. I am also deeply keen on personal affirmations.

9. What do you love most about helping others?

It’s such a honour to have been trusted to make so many hundreds of keepsakes over the years for so many people, in many different situations. Many of those people are having a keepsake made because they have lost someone dear to them and the clothes they are giving me are the last reminders of that person. It’s a joy to be able to help people process their grief and loss through my skills.

10. Your favourite quote?

‘When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.’ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Charlie Edwards

1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
Hey there, my Name is Charlie I am a psychic medium and intuition mentor and creator of Goddess Gathering Retreats and Workshops. I was born and raised in Bristol UK. I now live with my own family in Yorkshire. You can find me anywhere on Social Media under the name ‘That Girl Charlie Edwards’.
2. What is your business about?
I have been reading cards for almost 15 years now. This opened a door for me to encourage and support other women in their path as they grow and move through its different stages. Once I began doing this professionally clients would always ask for further guidance, How they could work with their intuition? What did I mean by self-care and how could they implement it in their lives? This is why I started creating workshops, podcasts and books. For centuries we have been taught to ignore our intuition and to put others first. I believe by teaching others how to tap into this and encouraging women to look after themselves and trust their sacred guidance system we can rise together and build a better world.
3. What made you get into this line of business?
I’ve always been psychic, although at a young age I thought it was all purely coincidence. As I got older I realised not everyone can tune into things I can, well not without some practice anyway. Its grown from there.
I think I am my business. I’m a natural fixer. If someone comes to me with a problem, the first question is what is this teaching us/you? and Secondly, what can we do to move forward? I’m not the type of person my friends call for a pity party. The cards were the beginning I then went on to become a Reiki healer. The mentoring, workshops and gatherings have grown from there.

4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
O.M Goddess everyone needs a morning routine. How you start your day sets the tone. I use a mixture of morning routines that I’ve picked up over the years and moulded into something that now works for me.  I highly recommend the book Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod for anyone looking for a way to get their butt out of bed and change their mindset and life for the better.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Good Question. Do you know I’m not sure? I’ll tell you the piece of advice I give to everyone though. Choose your F-Word Wisely. Just when you think you are f***ed turns out you just gotta have faith that it will work out. The Universe is always listening and you must remember it always working for you not against you. If there is a roadblock it’s because the universe has something better for you.

6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
Oh without a doubt its Ask and it is Given By Ester Hicks & Abraham. This book changed my life.
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I’m about to launch my goal setting workbook and then next spring my book is being published. There are always offers sent out with my monthly Newsletter. I haven’t decided this months offer yet. I have some amazing followers. So I always make sure they have a discount code. Being of service and grateful is essential.
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Oh gosh, there are so many things you can do. Music is the easiest one. Put your favourite high vibe song on really loud and dance like a loon around the room. It shakes off those low vibes and gives you the good feels. If that’s not an option then think of 5 things that you are grateful for. If you struggle with this then think of smaller things. The more you do it the easier it becomes. There is always something to be grateful for.
9. What do you love most about helping others?
I love to see my clients living the life they were wishing for. Sometimes its small changes, sometimes its big changes. The part I love the most are the emails I get from Clients with photos of them travelling or in their new job. Or when I wake up to a simple Thank you message for a reading I sent out the night before. It’s the best feeling to help another.
10. Your favourite quote?
‘Your Crown has been Bought and paid for. All you must do is put it on’ – Maya Angelo.
I have this above my desk to remind me every day that women have fought for me to be where I am today. And that we no longer have to apologise for who we are. Just focusing on what is rising in us.

Danielle Grant

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

My name is Danielle Grant, my business name is Your Mindset Mentor and I am from Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

  1. What is your business all about?

My business is all about helping entrepreneurs understand their thoughts, where they are from, how to heal them and how to develop a healthy positive inner dialogue that aligns with their goals and dreams.

  1. What make you get into this line of business?

After years of working on and in my own mindset and working with many entrepreneurs I came to find what was really holding them back from moving forward and it was in alignment with what I was learning personally.

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

What makes me get up and go in the morning is knowing that when someone plugs into my content, systems, and coaching there lives are changed forever. I do have a morning power routine and it looks something like this…. Drink water, brush teeth with opposite hand, 15 minutes meditation, journal and affirmations, stretch, breakfast.

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

All the support you will ever need is within you. It is up to you to feel it, listen to it, and believe it.

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

The Aladdin Factor by Jack Canfield

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

My signature 6 week UpLevel Program will be opening enrollment in Jan 2019

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

Journal out what is bothering me so that I can have an inner conversation to work my way through the block.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

Seeing the change they’ve been working on internally start to be reflected externally.

  1. Your favourite quote?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

Brooke Allison

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

Hey everyone! I’m Brooke Allison, your Mind Shift Coach and Achievement Strategist, single cat mom, solo dance partier, rule breaker, and high energy friend! My business is Brooke Allison Coaching and I currently am packing up my life in Denver to move back home to St. Louis for the holidays. Starting in Feb 2019, I will be a full on digital nomad! EEK! I am so excited!

  1. What is your business about? 

I am all about helping badass women up level their confidence, find clarity, and define their deeper purpose so they can create a business and a mindset that is fiercely unstoppable!

I work with women who are ready to step into their calling, find their purpose and up level their confidence along the way! I help them dive deep into who they are to design a life and a business they are madly in love with. I truly believe if there is a deeper calling on your heart then you have to run after it! You have a story to tell, a message for the world and it is time you step into your true calling to show others it’s safe for them to do the same!

This is on your heart for a reason, dive in, expect miracles, and run after your dream life!

It’s time to design a life and a business you are madly in love with!

  1. What made you get into this line of business? 

Where do I even begin?! I have always been a rebel…a rule breaker! I mean…my little girl dream was to be Celine Dion’s backup dancer! I have always been a big dreamer and for a long time, I knew I was meant to leave a legacy! My journey has gone in many directions but my purpose has never changed, I am meant to impact the masses! In 2014, I graduated with a BFA in Visual Art with a Photography Emphasis and a Dance Minor. I truly thought I would get a job easily after graduation and that just didn’t happen!

Month after month, no art job, no anything! I ended up getting promoted and promoted in my retail career which was not what I wanted for my life! In November of that year, I started my first business, an MLM business and I LOVED IT! I dove all in, I loved the comradery and the community, but most of all I loved that this opportunity got me to start dreaming!

The next thing I knew about 5 months later, I was packing up my life in a 10×10 truck and moving across the country to Colorado with the man I was dating at the time. I had just quit my job of 5 years, moved out of my parents home, started a new job, moved across the country, and moved in with my boyfriend. Talk about too many life-changing decisions at one time! My relationship with my boyfriend at the time was never great but I truly just thought it was dramatic. I thought that is just how our relationship was and I was hoping that moving across the country would allow us to grow together. Unfortunately soon after that, my relationship escalated to something that was so unhealthy, so unsafe, and really abusive. I had to get out.

I’m not going to say it was easy because it wasn’t, but eventually, I got the courage to leave that situation and move out on my own. I’m telling you all of this because if it wasn’t for this relationship, I would not have a business. I would not have had the opportunity to grow myself and become the badass confident version of me that I am today and now be able to impact others!

Through adversity comes champions and I am a freakin’ champion! It didn’t take me long to get sick of staying in bed, thinking I was worthless, thinking that was the love I deserved. I had my “enough is enough” moment and just knew none of that was true. I knew I wasn’t living as the Brooke I was meant to be, so I made the decision! Right then I was going to dive massively into my personal development and become the powerful Brooke I always knew I could be!

While growing myself, I continued to grow my MLM business and I grew it all the way to the top 4% of the company! I was on my way to earning my first free car and becoming the top 1% of the company when I met this woman at the mall. Believe it or not, she is the one who changed my life! She is the one I owe my business to; she is the one who introduced me to Facebook groups! The specific facebook group she added me to is the only reason I found the coaching world!

Fast forward to July of 2017. I was working 3 jobs, running my MLM business, seen as a major success yet I still couldn’t pay the bills! I had been on food assistance for almost a year at that point and I had no idea how things were going to become different for my life but all I knew was that this situation was temporary!

Finding the coaching world completely changed my life! I had been praying to do something more! I remember feeling like a bird who had her wings clipped and then I found the coaching world and just knew this was exactly what I was meant to do with my life! This was I was meant to impact the masses and leave my legacy.

I jumped in full speed ahead, found a way to hire a coach, and I RAN! Here we are just over a year later with five-figure months and a six-figure business and growing! There is no amount of time too small to make massive things happen!

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

What gets me up in the morning is my mission, my legacy! I do have a morning routine but I also honor what I need! Sometimes I do it religiously, other times I don’t! You have to find what works best for you but I absolutely make sure I do something throughout the day to help me grow and learn if I don’t stick to my normal routine!

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

I have no idea why this question is so hard!! I don’t think it’s about the best advice I’ve been given. It’s about all the bad advice that I chose not to listen to and make my own path! Remember, anything that has been said to you or done to you, you don’t have to own any of that! It does not make you who you are!

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

You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

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

Yes of course!! ALWAYS! Right now, my 1:1 program is about to sell out again for the 4th time. I have massive 1:1 mentorship, intensives, courses, masterclasses, everything you need to up-level your confidence and build the business you are obsessed with!

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly? 

Here’s the thing! It only takes 17 seconds to completely change your energy! For me, remembering my vision, my deeper mission, and why I’m doing all of this in the first place! If needed I will journal about how I’m feeling and journal about what I desire as if it’s already my reality.

  1. What do you love most about helping others? 

Just reading this question makes me smile! What I love the most is that it only takes one. One person I get to impact that gets to impact their friend or family member, that friend or family member impacting someone else, who impacts someone else…. One by one we are changing the world!

Teri Gosselin

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

Teri Gosselin

Business Title/Name:Transformational Strength Coach + Healer/ Teri Gosselin Coaching

Location: Maryland, USA

  1. What is your business about?

As a Transformational Strength Coach + Healer,  I help women who have suffered great loss (whether it be loss of a loved one, loss of self, loss of passion) truly embrace their authenticity at their soul essence, enabling them to discover their strength within to persevere and heal from the inside out.

I want to help as many women as possible feel safe to share their authenticity, receive the gentle encouragement and guidance they need, and understand that they are stronger than they know, that hope is possible and that they can truly live a beautiful life after loss!

  1. What made you get into this line of business?

After enduring the sudden loss of my brother, three weeks before my wedding day, I soon lost who I was, consumed by anxiety and overwhelm, and deep sadness. My ten-year long healing journey has been a long and bumpy one, and after years of therapy, intense inner work with coaches, and exploration and expansion of my soul, my spirituality and my gifts, I am so grateful to be able to help other amazing women on their own healing journey.

My goal is to help women embark on their healing journey much sooner than I was able to, to rediscover who they are, what lights their soul on fire, and that they are meant for a beautiful life after loss, and all on their own divine timing. Healing work is very deep, sacred and personal – I don’t take that for granted, and appreciate the trust so many women have in me to support them on their own journey.

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

My kids, usually 😉 They are our alarm clocks!

However, the thought of a new day to inspire, to motivate, to give hope to those who feel hopeless, is what gets me up and moving!

My morning power routine usually includes some quiet time listening to podcasts or ebooks for further development, and gratitude. A life full of gratitude allows a conscious presence in the moment, and that is where the magic of life happens!

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

The best advice that I was ever given, and I still use each day for myself and my clients, is “To Be Gentle With Yourself.”

This statement may sound simplistic, however when I received this beautiful sentiment from a former boss after I had lost my brother, it spoke volumes to me.

It gave me the permission I needed to feel into the grief I was enduring.

To know it is more than ok to have these feelings and understand what they are.

To love myself through it anyhow.

That these feelings are due to the great loss I had experienced, the loss of my past, my present and my future.

That to be gentle with myself was all I could do in that moment, and that was enough.

To this day, I think of this gift of advice often. I share this regularly with my community and clients as reminder to bring themselves back to the present, to give themselves permission to feel what they are going through, and to remind them how much strength it takes to do so.

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

Brene Brown’s “Braving the Wilderness” spoke to my soul deeply. Like an intimate call to show up more vulnerable and courageous, all while connecting with others, which in turn has been a significant component on how I have grown my business. I give my community and clients permission to do this, all the while, I am actively doing the same.

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

Yes! My new six month 1:1 program has launched, and I am so thrilled to share it with you!

Ready to realign your energetic connection through opening any blocked chakras (emotional blocks) so that you can reignite your truest essence and heal from the inside out.

Ready to lead with your heart, allowing you to love yourself after loss, and serving as beacon of hope to others that a beautiful life can continue after loss.

Ready to eliminate guilt by setting healthy boundaries with personal and professional relationships, career, time and social life so that you can priorities YOUR needs, wants and desires, and create the inner peace you seek so deeply.

Ready to release the pressure to be perfect so that you can live a fuller life and discover the pieces of yourself that have gone missing, particularly in the form of play, happiness, and contentment.

Ready to give permission to and of yourself to own who you are, and what you want in life, speak your truth and know your story is worth loving, and will bring you a sense of freedom.

Ready to recognise and embrace your own inner strength and resilience on your healing journey to not only persevere but to thrive and live a purpose-driven life.

Ready to truly honour the journey you have been on so that you can shift and reconstruct your thoughts and perceptions, and open your mind and heart to expansion and opportunity.

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

Deep breathing! I can centre myself back to the moment, drop into my body, and allow myself to simply just be. This does wonders!!

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

Can I say everything? It warms my heart when I see women breaking through the shadows, their fears, their past, in order to find themselves again. To come back to love!

It takes great strength and courage to embark on a healing journey, and when women show up to do so, it is the most beautiful event I have ever witnessed. The unbecoming of ourselves to become ourselves is truly the greatest gift one could ever give themselves.

Sophie Coltburn

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

My name is Sophie Coltburn, I am the founder of Mindsoulness and I’m from South coast UK.
2. What is your business about?

Mindsoulness is about using our mindset to heal and help ourselves and others. To manage things like anxiety, overwhelm and procrastination, to increase our success in our relationships and businesses and most importantly to experience more joy in our lives. We look at all types of methods of mindset work, from the very practical and physical, to the more esoteric and spiritual.
3. What made you get into this line of business?
I come from a professional career in Graphic Design. I was set on that path from age 15, but after a couple of years in the industry I suffered a huge loss in our family and it shifted my perspective on everything. It took me a few years of trying different companies and design roles to realise that office/employee work really wasn’t for me and I couldn’t stay feeling so trapped every day.
I started listening to podcasts and videos by people like Tony Robbins, Lewis Howes, Marie Forleo and Tim Ferris and learned about being an entrepreneur. I craved more freedom and wanted to do something that lit me up and allowed me to do more in my life.
Mindsoulness seemed to be a seed of something planted in my mind one night and it’s taken me a few years of hard work to understand what it is. I know it’s bigger than me, which can be daunting, but exciting at the same time.
4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
I don’t really have any issues getting up in the morning now that I don’t have to go to an office! I also work at home with my husband so we tend to just get up and have breakfast together before starting work.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
I don’t know if you’d call it advice, but there are a few core things that have helped me massively these past years.
1. Practice gratitude daily. It makes ALL the difference to your mindset and health.
2. Every moment is a new moment to start fresh.
3. You are the co-creator of your life. Take responsibility and recognise excuses for what they are.
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
Oh thats tough. I often recommend “You are a Baddass” and “You are a Badass at Making Money” by Jen Sincero
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I have a couple of openings for working on mindset with me 1:2:1 and I’m in the process of creating a course around managing anxiety and overwhelm.
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
I think gratitude is one of the key things. Anytime I start slipping into negative thoughts that aren’t useful for emotional processing*, I think of things I’m thankful for and focus on the feelings of joy and gratitude.
* some negative thoughts can be processed and helpful to heal, but many are just fear getting in the way.
9. What do you love most about helping others?
I love seeing the changes that happen so fast. I’m always blown away by the speed at which the ladies I work with change their mindset, attitude and consequently their lives.
10. Your favourite quote?
“Change your thoughts and you change your world” – Norman Vincent Peale
