Alison Callan

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

Hi, I’m Alison and I’m a Global Clarity and Success Coach and Mindfulness Consultant. I am currently living in Brisbane in Australia, with my husband our two boys, dog and cat. I’m originally from the UK, and have spent a good seven years in New Zealand. So, I am putting that ‘Global’ title to literal good use!

2. What is your business about?

My Business is about inspiring people to Consciously Create lives they love and deserve and I do this through many modalities. Firstly, it is about empowering empathic intuitives in Business to grow and develop conscious purposeful businesses with confidence and ease. I support them through my group and 1:1 programs. Secondly, I work with empathic intuitives in the corporate space, and mothers returning to work who want to get ahead and climb the corporate ladder without playing the games. Thirdly, I work with Organisations and teams to embed Mindfulness into working environments to bring about a change in culture. And I present and speak on all of these topics!

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

My kids! I realised that when I became a mum how inspired my children made me to be the very best person I could be and how much more I still had to give, how much more I still wanted to do and how I was not ready to let go of my dreams. So, I chose to get to work and own my purpose once and for all, there was no more room in my life to deny my calling, I had Consciously Created life – I deserved to Consciously live mine to the fullest!

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

I truly love what I do, it’s actually hard to go to bed at night, I’m always so excited about the following day and what I have planned.
I do however do my Mindset Pathway & Planner routine every morning because it keeps me on ‘Purpose’ which is critical in my line of work energetics wise.(You can check it out here – http://bit.ly/MsPaP)

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

When you make ‘a mistake’ own it!

I think it’s more than that, if you can see a way that you can improve or solutionise in your own journey then it’s not so much about the mistake but the way you choose the rectify it and learn from it, communicate it and build trust in yourself, your abilities and receive trust and respect from those looking on.

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

’A Little Light on the Spiritual Laws’ – By Diana Cooper

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

Remember who I am. I breathe and allow my future self, the woman I am becoming to converse with me and give me her words of wisdom – she is the one with all the answers and they lie inside me, all I have to do is ask.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

Honestly, seeing them succeed and helping others. It’s this incredible ripple effect, where they rise in confidence and courage and suddenly they are summoning without effort everything they were struggling previously to dream of.

10. Your favourite quote?

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart – Helen Keller.

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.”

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?

  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
