Rhian Kivits

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

My name’s Rhian, I’m from Looe in Cornwall, UK and my business is RhianKivits.com

  1. What is your business about?

I’m a Conscious Dating & Relationship Consultant, Love & Intimacy Mentor and Founder of The Soulmate Success System.

I work with clients (mostly women and couples) from all over the world online using my unique blend of psychotherapeutic techniques and mind-body-soul wisdom.

My mission is to help successful, ambitious women become just as fearless, magnetic and lucky in love. I believe that we all deserve to enjoy purposeful relationships that add value to our lives, supportive partners who desire to learn, grow and expand alongside us and intimate connection that helps us feel fully self expressed on every level.

I work 1:1 with clients on a bespoke basis under my Love Lessons service or Soulmate Success System. This might involve solving specific sex or relationship issues, learning how to enjoy intimacy more, navigating the dating game or heavier issues, like recovering from a painful past, divorce or abuse in order to move forward.

I also run holistic group programs for women online on topics like women’s sexual healing, sensuality, self love and orgasmic manifestation! We need to learn how to heal and love ourselves because ultimately we are our own Soulmates as a starting point.

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

If you wind the clock back on my own life about 12 years or so, I was living a city life stuck in unfulfilling, demanding jobs and trapped in a dysfunctional marriage with no compatibility or true connection. I was carrying so many burdens from my own past and struggling to be a good mum to my children. Although I had a level of professional success and on the outside it looked like I had a good life, underneath I was struggling to cope. My mental health was suffering, I felt lonely, numb and empty and I’d chosen a partner who was never going to be able to meet my needs.

I woke up to the fact that things had to change. Essentially I knew that it was my responsibility to change my situation and my emotional state. I started to become interested in holistic healing and quit my miserable job to start my own spiritual business as a complementary therapist. As I learned new skills and started to open up to the world of emotion and energy, I was on my own personal journey of healing and awakening which helped me learn the value of inner work and personal growth.

Eventually, I qualified as a psychodynamic couple therapist and took training in sex therapy. I knew my mission was to help other people enjoy better relationships, not only with partners, but with themselves too. I explored alternative approaches to relationships like Tantra and Taoism. I began to combine all my knowledge so that I could work on every level – mind, body and soul.

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

I’m a busy mum with children so my mornings usually start with them. We live by the sea, so I always take some mindful breaths of ocean air when taking the children to school – it’s informal, but this really is a power routine! I also try to do something to motivate and balance myself each morning too. This can vary – it may be a spot of self-healing with Reiki or Egyptian Seichem, it may be a meditation, it may be journaling or gratitude practice.

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

I love the Reiki principles, which each start with ‘Just for today’. I feel we put a lot of pressure on ourselves as entrepreneurs to improve and perform and sometimes this can be stressful or cause anxiety. But when I remind myself to do the best I can in my life, my work or as a mum, step by step, ‘just for today’, I know that I can be present in the here and now, and that I can trust myself to take care of tomorrow when it comes. As I’ve struggled with anxiety from a young age, I find this approach really supportive. I believe in being kind and compassionate with ourselves.

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

Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

This is a fabulous, powerful book filled with inspiring stories of feminine strength. Plus it’s written by a psychoanalyst – so it speaks to my soul and my love of symbolism as well as my professional side.

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

I have a free download I’d love to offer: bit.ly/soulmateguide

It’s my simple system that shows you exactly how to harness the emotional power of chakra affirmations so that you can attract soulmate love.

The guide is ideal for any woman who’s looking to find a new soulmate partner or who’d like to deepen her connection with her existing partner.

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

I’ve learned from my experience of tantric bodywork and taoist approaches that when we activate our Chi (our life force energy) we create a positive, helpful body chemistry that can make us feel more energised and banish those negative thoughts that make us feel sluggish or demotivated.

I raise my Chi through shaking meditation or 10 minutes of dancing to uplifting music.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

I absolutely love seeing the impact of my work on my clients. They tell me how I’ve helped them turn around failing relationships, find freedom from their past abuse or discovered confidence after a lifetime of hiding away. This really makes my heart sing – it’s such a fabulous feeling to know that you’ve touched someone’s life and they’re happier or more successful as a result.

I also appreciate that I’m constantly learning from my clients because human beings are so diverse and my work is so fascinating. It’s a true privilege to get to know people so well, and to understand more about myself in the process.

  1. Your favourite quote?

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere – they are in each other all along – Rumi

I adore this quote because it creates such a beautiful image. Love is meant to be and I really believe we all deserve to experience it. I believe when two people form a deep, loving relationship what they create together is bigger than the sum of its parts and that it is through experiencing love that we can expand into our highest potential. And the journey to finding love is also about finding ourselves. Be it to see it, as they say!

Jennica Collado

1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
I’m Jennica Collado, a Confidence + Visibility Coach from the Philippines.
 
2. What is your business about?
I work with introverted, intuitive women in business who are afraid to rise and show up in their businesses because they feel like frauds, they are worried about being accepted for who they are, they prefer to hide than to shine and be visible. I help them think better, see themselves as guides, be who they truly are un- apologetically, and be confidently visible.
 
3. What made you get into this line of business?
What made me get into this line of business is a decade of unconsciously working on myself as I move through life. In retrospect, every decision, twist, and turn I committed to led me to learn more about how to be more open and expansive. In the past several months, I deepened my inner work by working on a lifelong struggle with problematic eating. I was very resistant as I prefer to invest time, energy, and money on business coaching instead of therapy. But I trusted my intuition enough that I allowed myself to be led by it. After 4 sessions with my coach/therapist, looking at the mirror is mindblowing. What I previously saw as distortion and ugly is now beautiful, acceptable, and well… Thinner than I’ve ever seen myself. And mind you, I didn’t lose a single pound. That says a lot about the illusion we allow our minds to believe.
 
That experience, one that I’m continuously working on until now, has led me to see myself differently. So different that it uncovered the light and confidence that I innately knew is already in me. And yes, all these self love, self worth, and certainty led me to leave a business of pure strategy to one of healing and transformation. That’s how my confidence and visibility coaching business was born.

4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
Ooh yes, I love morning routines! It is an evolving set of activities for me but one that’s structured enough for me to commit to it but flexible enough for me to not beat myself up if each activity isn’t done perfectly. I start the day by enjoying my comfy bed and placing my hand on my chest, feeling so much gratitude for where I am and where I’m going. I then prepare my celery juice, bring it to the balcony for some wealth consciousness reading (currently reading “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill). Since my apartment is near the pool where my neighbors’ kids play in the morning, I go back inside to peacefully journal my morning thoughts. After elevating my vibe, I prepare a cup of tea and grab my yoga mat for yoga with YogaGlo.
 
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
“Whatever you do or say is filtered through the lens of others’ experiences. What they say about you is about them.” I saw this on Instagram at the perfect moment and thinking about it every time I need to has helped me stay on my own lane, shine my light, and live unapologetically.
 
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
“The Law of Divine Compensation” by Marianne Williamson.
 
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
Yes! I am currently offering a program to jumpstart 2019! It’s a 30-day private coaching program with me where you would walk away with activated of ease, expansion, and confidence with online visibility. This includes mindset work using the cognitive behavioral approach, bespoke strategies on social media, email list building, and content creation, optimization of Facebook and Instagram accounts, and strong support through weekly 60-minute calls and unlimited Voxer support.
 
If you book a slot by December 31st, this will be USD500. Then the price goes up once we hit 2019. If this resonates with you, feel into the energy… We’re meant to work together.

8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Play with my hamsters. Being with nature and creatures as cute as my hammies instantly change my focus and elevate my vibe, making it easier to choose better feeling thoughts.
 
9. What do you love most about helping others?
What I love the most about helping others is it fulfills my soul purpose. I believe I’m here to guide and teach people, and live my life as a positive example for them.
 
10. Your favourite quote?
Be un -apologetically extra.

Maria McGrath

Introduce yourself

HI my name is Maria McGrath, I am 46 years old, & I live in a small country town in Central West NSW, Australia.

My business is called Restore Balance & Harmony & I am a Creatrix® Transformologist® & FEMALE mindset expert!

What is your business about

My business is about helping women HEAL their head, heart & soul at their deepest core level, with an organic, fast & painless process called Creatrix®!

Creatrix® has been designed by a woman, specifically for the Female mind & body.. It is a modality with a full therapy inside of it, & the only Epigenetic breakthrough process, 100% designed according to the science of epigenetics….

After a Creatrix® breakthrough, your beliefs have changed, thoughts have changed, values have changed, focus has changed.. The therapy inside of it makes sure the painful or negative emotions & beliefs never come back…as you are replacing them with YOUR unique soul wisdom, your own learning that you do not get in any other modality…

After all the only person who can truly HEAL you is YOU!!

Creatrix® is a virtual reality process that’s done with your eyes closed, that causes you to unlearn your issues at the very root until they drop away. It is like nothing else out there, not psychology, not NLP, Not Hypnosis, it is its’ own process, designed for the way the female brain is wired.

 

ReLease– Negative emotional and limiting Blocks -The focus and care factor shift,

ReLearn -Get your unique life learnings and knowledge.  The beliefs become productive instead of sabotaging.

ReFrame- Thoughts and entire perspective changes

ReCode - Deletes inherited negative patterns and cycles and strategies are replaced for when encountering the old triggers.

ReCreate – You can live life the way you want it without those patterns and cycles that were keeping you stuck.

 

Recent studies show that women fill around 70% of seats at most personal development courses, seminars & workshops. We are searching for answers, for the tools to create change in our lives…..  & we keep going back, again & again because the majority of women are NOT getting results. Trouble is, when these don’t work, we then beat ourselves up as we think there is something wrong with us, wondering… “why doesn’t this work for ME? Why can’t I make this work” “What is wrong with me”?

This is why we need to understand that there is a gender difference, & we have just been using the wrong tool, the incompatible software for our hardware! ITS NOT ME, IT’S just the wrong TOOL!

Up until now, medicine, convention & the personal development world have not considered or taken into account the MALE V FEMALE differences… There is such a lack of understanding about our emotions, the hormonal differences, & about how our brains work, which make the gender differences, even personality differences MATTER… They ALL matter!!

Women are different!!

Our physical bodies are different, (this we know), our brains are different, our hormones are different (women’s fluctuating every day of every month, of every year).  Even our retinas (inner layer of the eye) are different. Females see things differently, we view & perceive the world differently to males, & how we process those images & thoughts is different as well! We are creator beings, we were created to be different, we are meant to feel differently to the protector beings. We are more emotional (8 times more crying hormone!) while males are more logical… (generally speaking… there is always exception)

Imagine…. the iphone & the Samsung – 2 devices that can do the same things (generally) text, calls, video, internet, download music, etc… BUT the software & hardware from an iphone is NOT compatible with any Android phone… This is the same for the Female & Male!! We need our own software, that is compatible with our Hardware.

And Creatrix® is THE tool/process that works for the FEMALE MIND… hands down, every time*, & at a deep & lasting level.

I help women to completely cut the ties with all their past trauma & emotional pain, as well as old patterns or conditioning, & ‘beliefs’ that are holding them stuck or not serving their greater good…

I have found that many women are struggling in their career & business, because they have beliefs & fears that hold them ‘stuck’ or in endless procrastination. It could be fear of :- rejection, being judged, criticized… self-doubt, low self-worth, lack of confidence, feeling like a fraud or ‘imposter syndrome’.. Something a majority of women have is some variation of “I’m not enough”.. not good enough, smart enough, skinny enough, successful enough….etc…

Creatrix® helps a women access their deepest OWN Wisdom, at their deepest sub-conscious, their- intuition, source or soul, (each woman would have a different way to describe this, depending on beliefs, it’s the same place.. regardless of what we call it). This inner wisdom, these self-realisations or learnings (that are their OWN, NO two women will ever have the same learnings), replaces the old patterns, the negative head chatter & painful emotions that were not serving them.

 

This is NOT a one size fits all process, as each & every woman is different, & therefore each breakthrough is completely individual, tailored to the specific woman, & specific issues.

What makes you get up in the morning?

I get up every morning because I know there are woman who are struggling & need my help…

Each day I am motivated & Inspired by the emails, texts and big HUGS, saying “I feel AMAZING!” or “You have changed my life, I don’t even know where to begin”.  “You have given my children their mother back!” & “today was the first time I in a long time I feel like me…. forever, so grateful”!

I jump out of bed every day because I know I have the tool that is saving women’s lives… saving them from depression, despair, anxiety, PTSD, grief…. that most people tell them they ‘just have to live with”….

Here are just a couple of client stories from this year. Women who wanted to feel better within themselves, who wanted more out of life, & chose to take control, to set their heart, mind & soul FREE!!

A mother of 2 young girls, who was struggling with depression, she was on stress leave from work, & some days she just couldn’t get out of bed. She was yelling at her kids all the time & everyone in the house was walking on eggshells & kids were crying all the time..

Some issues we worked on- Anxious, angry, Depressed, impatient, frustrated, scared, betrayed, confused, unhappy, helpless… 

After 24 hours I received this text. “OMG, Maria you have changed my life! I jumped out of bed this morning without even thinking about it. Kids made it out the door on time & for the first time in a long time there were no tears at all… I got out of the house & went for coffee with friends!!

 

A 50-year-old grandmother, fulltime counsellor, had suffered a life time of abuse, mental, physical & sexual, & had been carrying the emotional baggage for decades …

Some issues we worked on- Feeling unloved & unsupported, Fear of abandonment, Hate, Anger, I can’t trust anyone, self-sabotage, resentment, I am not enough, grief, self-doubt, anxiety…..

3 sessions & a list of 100+ issues all gone. She is now traveling around the country, living & loving life.. Passionately sharing her emotional journey, to help other women know there is a solution.

 

An entrepreneur in 30’sAppears Successful & confident to everyone who knows her, but she is feeling anything but….. She feels so negative about her weight, about how she looks, ”I feel disgust, loathing & repulsed by how I look”, her mind so full of negativity it stops her reaching full potential

Some issues we worked on- Not good enough, self-loathing, I feel fat, frustration, I’m a failure, dissatisfied, overwhelmed, inadequate, what am I doing wrong…..

After 3 sessions, she is feeling HAPPY, positive & empowered!! No feeling or thinking about self-image or body issues, just getting on with running her business…

 

A mum running from Domestic Violence – with a young child & had to move to a new & unfamiliar state.

Some issues we worked on- Trapped, stuck, Angry, frustration, heartbroken, worthless, ashamed, taken for granted, lack of confidence, feeling financially ruined, guilt, deep sadness

‘Wow, the sadness & overwhelm I was stuck in no longer exists, I am feeling in control of my life again. I am able to deal with anything life throws at me in a new & positive way’..

 

A business woman in 30’s – spent 10 years working up career ladder, at the point of quitting as no confidence & fear of public speaking overwhelming..  

Some issues we worked on- Anxiety, self-conscious, Fear of public speaking, Lack of confidence, intimidated, betrayal, sad, not worthy

‘Before I tried Creatrix, I was afraid of everything. My confidence was shot and I was so sensitive that a simple sideways look by the wrong person would set me on a path of self-loathing and anxiety about what that person thought of me. Now I feel completely confident and I actually enjoy life rather than being afraid of it. I feel happy, excited and eager to enjoy life. My focus has shifted away from the negative of ‘what might happen’ to the positive of ‘just imagine the possibilities’.

Really common issues that a lot of women have… BUT do NOT have to live with…

FEELING ‘not good enough’, lack of confidence, worthless, self-loathing, self-doubt, overwhelm, procrastination (symptom of other issues), Anger, sadness, dissatisfied, fear of being judged, comparing myself to others, (and so, so many more)…

Maria012

What made you get into this line of work??

I spent a decade struggling with varying levels of depression, sadness, loneliness, grief… and so many other emotions.. I was in my 30’s not married, no kids & all I had ever wanted was to be married & have lots of kids.. That was the dream, the only one I had… & I didn’t understand why I couldn’t find that… Each year that went by, the sadder &  I got, & the more emotions layered on top of emotions & they weighed me down, down, down.…into a black pit of despair….

“I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy of love”,” I’m not a real woman because I don’t have kids” I have nothing to give to anyone…. resentment, hurt, loneliness, jealousy, envy, anger… There were many layers of grief….grief that I didn’t have the life I had imagined, grief that I was alone, & the grief that I may never have children was a physical pain deep inside me….

When I turned 40, I wanted to die!! Not that I could commit suicide, but I did not want to live…. It was too painful, & I could not see a way forward, through or over the pain…

Until I found Creatrix®!!! Now this was not the first modality/tool/ process that I had tried..

BUT it was the ONE that worked!! Creatrix® turned my light back ON.. It healed me at my deepest core!! I felt peace, joy, contentment…I had a confidence, self-love & self-worth, that was never in my life before Cretrix®..

To have had my own past struggle with depression & other emotional issues, and come out the other side, gives me an understanding of depth & weight of emotional baggage that can weigh women down, & I think it helps my clients to know that I have an understanding of what they are feeling & going through. And that if this tool worked for me, it will work for them TOO!!

I am passionate about helping other women live a life FREE of emotional & mental pain & struggle. I KNOW there is a better way, & I want to help women KNOW & feel that too….

 

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

My dad told me when I was around 12 years old, “There will always be someone who knows more than you, & is better at any given job than you are. Take the opportunity to learn from them & grow.”

Maria

What is a book you would say everyone should read?

Samantha Charles

 

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

Hi! I’m Samantha Charles, everyone calls me Sam. I’m a 30 year old single parent of two toddlers and proud owner of an online store – Trending Gifts and Things. I am from the Caribbean -Georgetown, Guyana and my passion is to inspire people in any way I can!

  1. What is your business about?

We also have a satisfaction guarantee policy and on board customer service team. We are passionate about customer service and offering value for money hence we are always looking for ways to improve what we do and offer the best we possibly can to each and every one of our valued customer!

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

My number one motivation was and still is my kids. The desire to spend more time with them, working with a flexible schedule and being able to be take better control of my finances were all contributing factors to my decision to open my own store. In addition, that desire to inspire others, more specifically mothers and female entrepreneurs such as myself, to be overcomers for any situation life throws at them. My business allows me to be true to myself and fulfil my vision of a society of strong, independent women. We even have a closed FB group called Strong, Independent Women that further allows me to fulfil this passion. Having experienced personal difficulties of my own I have a deep understanding and appreciation for the little sentimental things in life and how important it is to surround yourself with inspiration and positivity. Happier women will ultimately result in happier homes, happier families and a happier society! And it all starts with one girl, one woman, one lady at a time.

 

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

The realisation that my cause is bigger than my current situation. My life, my purpose, my time here is so much grander than what my external factors denotes at the moment. Hence, the constant need to keep on thriving to do more, reach more women, inspire more lives whether on my good days and bad is ever present.  I’m a typical mom hence early morning routines entails getting my morning hugs from the kids before we come off the bed and then it’s all crazy trying to send them off to school…lol. However, after they’re off to school I do take some alone time to recharge and mentally prepare for the rest of the day. This sometimes include looking at atleast one motivational, inspirational video, listening to empowering music or affirmations. It’s never the same thing everyday …lol.

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

To limit my expectations of others. It’s not what people do to us that hurts us but rather our expectations of them that does. If we can manage our expectations we can manage how we react when faced with disappointments, rejection, desertion, deception, etc. It was the absolute best advice I ever got!

 

 

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

Act like a lady, think like a man by Steve Harvey

 

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

Promotions and offers are always ongoing at our store. Our business is still new however our objective it to have at least two promotions monthly. Hence we will always have something exciting happening.

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

 

Take a time out! Lol … It doesn’t have to be a long time out (depending on the situation). Sometimes just 10 minutes of quiet time to breathe, clear my mind and release any negative energy is all it takes to get back in the game and win!

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

Knowing that this gift of life that was given to me was not wasted and if I made just one person … just one… feel good about themselves during the day then I would have added value to my existence for that day. Doing good, being kind, sharing positive vibes always has a ripple effect and a good one. It’s like music while some are closer to the stereo and can hear the words some might be able to just hear the beat in a distance but dance all the same.

  1. Your favourite quote?

My mom, an advocate of integrity and hard work, made me memorise this one when I was a kid and it never left me:

“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

My name is Leanne and I am a mum of four living in rural Northumberland.

48361928_412324066264289_4852726734199455744_n

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

I basically found myself at an all time low, struggling to find joy in parenting, struggling to find joy in life and dealing with my husband who at the time was facing some issues with his own mental health all while running my own business and having four kids.

I woke up one day and realised there was more to life and set off to find it and in doing so I felt inspired to help anyone who has ever felt like I used to.

I was also inspired to work with children as my husbands mental health issues plus my lack of lustre for life had a knock on effect in my children’s life – which I am so happy to have turned around.

 

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

I get up in the morning because I love my life. I love my home, I love my work, I love my family and I have finally found my inner joy.

My morning routine consists of mentally noting my appreciation and gratitude for everything in my life and the things to come, I take 10 full in breaths and full out breaths and I pull a card from my keepers of the light deck for guidance…. Then I have ten gallons of coffee

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

I tend to listen to my own intuition and rarely seek advice from others so this is a hard question to answer, I suppose an ex boss once said to me that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and my interpretation of that was that nothing in life is worth loosing your inner peace over, you can also find a solution when you tackle a problem with love and understanding.

 

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

F**k It Therapy

 

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

I am opening up my mama and me positive living academy for enrolments. The academy focuses on the whole picture, mums mindset and emotional balance, parenting and supporting your child with their emotional needs. Its a six week academy with weekly training, activities, guidance and support – and by the end of the course you will have a new, clear and peaceful approach to parenting and life and you will be able to support your children to achieve the same.I love this academy, I have poured my heart and soul into it, I focused on how I felt in the past, my children have given their input and I have worked with lots of mums as guinea pigs  to fine tune the content and its amazing!

 

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

Breath work, it instantly changes your emotional state. Full in breath and full out breath.

 

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

The moment I see a light bulb go off and my clients whole body language changes, like they have just found their own joy – I love that.

 

  1. Your favourite quote?

My favourite quote is – ‘All we are is pure joy, peace and wisdom with the power to create the illusion we are not’

Karin Houston

 

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

My name is Karin, I’m from Fife in Bonnie Scotland (once you get past the rain and 6 days of sunshine a year…..it is kind of Bonnie). I am a mum to 6 and the CEO, cleaner, skivvy and boss lady of Beauty Bath Junkie.

2. What is your business about?

I make Bath Bombs mostly, but am venturing into new territory with soaps and other pamper products in the New Year. I started 3 years ago with a £50 investment (after the tax man very kindly gave me a refund). I started to sell online bath bombs sourced from suppliers, and after a few weeks friends approached me asking if they could sell them too. It kind of went from there – in year two after a series of let downs and bad quality from suppliers I decided I could do better and I got myself on the journey to making my own bath bombs. I now have well over 100 cosmetic safety assessments and hand paint a lot of our products, which sell all over the UK via a network of brand reps.

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

I believe the universe was responsible for this……I was a police officer and I guess my career was mapped out…..13 years service and pension forecast sorted, but a series of events in 2014 /2015 conspired to knock me for 6. In 2015 after a particularly bad week, I had a breakdown at work…..a complete “omg look at the snotters running from her nose” scenario as I sobbed uncontrollably for an hour.

I left that day and never went back. From being a confident, healthy police officer, I turned into a hairy hermit who suffered severe anxiety attacks in a daily basis. I left the house only to go to the Docs and counselling. I became smelly, unkempt and exhausted and I really didn’t know how to pull myself out of it. A year later, I was online when it suddenly hit me that working online was the way to go. I had done some network marketing prior to this as a sideline but I needed a job – a job that didn’t require me to get out of PJs or leave the house. I look back now at “snottergate” and realise how far I have come, and I actually don’t have to plait armpit hair and actually get dressed every day now!

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

Passion of creating makes me get up (and 2 twin terrorists who can’t be in the same room without arguing). I work every day and even when I decide to take a day off, I’m on my phone with our brand reps or wholesale customers so I’m never really off duty. I start the day with a coffee, check emails and messages and try to listen to a you tube video that is motivational or inspiring. Les brown is an absolute favourite.

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

Really two pieces of advice that go hand in hand – the first being – you can’t please everyone. In the early days I tried to……I was running about like a headless chicken trying to make everyone happy and then one day it hit me……..some people will never be happy no matter what you do. Once I had accepted that, it became a lot easier. The second piece of advice is – celebrate the positive and forget the negative. What a game changer!! I choose to dwell on successes, happy times and positive…….when I get a “blip” in that run, I learn from it and literally package it up and throw it away.

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

Wow so many helped me on my journey to recovery but i love audio books and one I listened to so so many times was “you are a badass”.

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

Our brand reps have always got offers on on products or hampers and we have a free sign up on January 6 for people looking to join us.

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

Music – it has to be cranked up and you HAVE to sing along and / or dance! I have a voice like a strangled moggy but I still love singing.

8. What do you love most about helping others?

It is the best feeling EVER! It’s like a smooth, creamy, hot chocolate with marshmallows for the soul.

10. Your favourite quote?

“if you say you can or can’t – you are right”. It sums it right up. YOU are responsible for the outcome.

Michelle Blake

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

Hi, my name is Michelle Blake. I own Making you Look Beautiful and I’m based in Bromley in Kent.

2. What is your business about?

My business is all about empowering women to feel confident about the way that they look.

image1

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

I was introduced to this amazing opportunity back in April 2017 and I jumped at the chance of joining other women to become a UK founder. I’ve always loved wearing makeup anyway, but being trained as a colour assessment advisor was something that other companies don’t offer.

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

My WHY POWER makes me get up and go in the mornings. I want to have time freedom and financial freedom to do what I want, whenever I want. Everyday I wake up at 5am and do my personal development (listening to an instructional cd or watching a training video). This helps to ensure that each day starts in the best possible way.

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

The best advice I have ever been given is ‘don’t compare yourself to anyone else” we are all on a different journey.

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

A book everyone must read… I have two: ‘The compound effect’ and ‘Get over your damn self’

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

At the moment there are Christmas offers taking place weekly, called the twelve weeks of Christmas.

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

I use affirmations to empower myself and to encourage a positive mindset. I also create positive posts to uplift others and by doing so, I uplift myself.

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I love the feeling of giving to others. I feel that by helping others, I’m sharing a bit of myself.  My grandad  was known as ‘Brother Help’ because of how he treated others and I think he may have passed some of this attribute to me.

10. Your favourite quote?

My all time favourite quote is ‘don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!’ No matter how I feel I make sure that I continue to shine.

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.
