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.

  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.

  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.

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

Erin Hill

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

Hi! My name is Erin Hill, and I’m the owner of A Beautiful Mess, LLC in
Cambridge MD

2. What is your business about?

I and a support and accountability coach for women – which is basically
being a cheerleader/personal trainer/drill Sargent/big sister.  I help
women meet their goals by having a safe place to be THEM – unwavering love
and acceptance for who and where they are, and challenging them to take
that next step

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

I started about 2 years ago working on ‘self care’ and barely scratching
the surface – so many other coaches were doing the same thing! I felt like
one of many… So I decided to brand myself as the #coachforwivesofaddicts
and lean on my personal experience of being married to not just one but 2
addicts to help women face their co-dependency.  That has turned into
realising that the ‘not enough ness’ doesn’t always manifest as
relationships with someone who’s addicted. It can look like the 5 or 10 or
50 pounds that won’t come off and stay off. It can look like reaching for
an MLM goal and missing it and feeling like a failure. It can look like
simply feeling like there is always a mask to be worn because it’s not
safe to be YOU.

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

My bladder is what makes me get up 🙂 I love to enjoy my coffee in peace
before I have to make sure the hubs and kids are up and ready and off to
school/work.  I love having a few quiet moments before tackling the day.
I do hit the gym at least 3 days a week, and try to read a little every
day.  My ‘routine’ is more nightly when I’m laying in bed, I practice
gratitude for the day’s events. I also say affirmations/mantras with a
mala I made with a friend.  Then up and at it the next day!

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

OOh Great question!!  There’s actually 2 life altering messages – the
first – Things don’t happen TO you – they happen FOR you. The second –
Keep showing up and doing the next right thing.

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

I’m not a big reader these days, but I’m working on it! I think I’d say
that everyone must read something for pleasure! In the online business
world, it feels like there’s always a book recommendation – mindset
shifts, personal development, etc. I think allowing ourselves to read
something for pleasure (I love old Stephen King or Dean Koontz, or trashy
romance novels) can help give your mind a break from the constant learn,
do, be, get and relax a bit!

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

I’m always looking to connect with women who are ready to get unwavering
support and accountability, and receive reminders about how amazing they
are!  I have weekly, daily, and VIP options starting around $75 per week.

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

Reach OUT! I have a few women in my circle that I know I can hit up if I
start feeling like I’m circling the drain. For me, it’s about momentum.
Getting a handle on the negative thoughts before they start pulling me in.
Reminding myself of the truth – like I’ve survived 100% of my bad days,
and most judgement comes from myself.

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I love to see the smiles. The light-bulb moments when a woman ‘gets it’ –
realises deep within that she is ENOUGH. As she is, how she is, and in who
she is.  It’s really magical!

10. Your favourite quote?

I believe it’s a Rumi quote – “What is for me, can not miss me.”

 

Thank you so much Erin for sharing your story and business with us, if you would like to see more from Erin then please go to Facebook or her Website

AnYes van Rhijn

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

My name is AnYes van Rhijn and I’m the owner of Successful Women Academy Ltd. I’m French from Dutch origin (both my parents were Dutch) and I grew up bilingual and bi-cultural. I left a toxic relationship that left me completely broke at 57 but instead of stepping into victim-hood I decided that this was an amazing opportunity to reconsider all my choices in life and in business. That is why I arrived in London three years ago at 58 with just two suitcases, eight weeks of house sitting, and without any income or savings, to rise from my ashes. There has been no turning back for me since.

  1. What is your business about?

I’m a Women’s Empowerment Coach and my focus is on empowering the next generation of female leaders in business or career.  I’m on a mission to help as many women as possible reach their full potential professionally and personally so that in doing so they can become role models for other women to do the same. I have two branches to my work:

  • I help entrepreneurs and business owners create, on their own terms, the successful and fulfilling business that will sustain the life they desire.
  • I help companies, who believe in the benefits for their business to have more women at the top of their organisation, to empower and retain their female potential thus creating a pipeline of women to promote to senior and board positions.

AnYes-236 copy.jpg 

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

Around 40 I had that nagging feeling that there must be more to life. I turned into an avid Personal Development addict and came across coaching. I became an Executive Coach at 48 and worked in Leadership Development and Change Management for eight years. When I reconsidered all my life and business choices at 57, I identified that what I was really passionate about was to help women reach their full potential which made total sense given I’m a walking example that it is possible.

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

I’m a morning person and I’m grateful every day again for the gift of a brand-new day that I’ve been granted and that makes me wake up without any problem. Yes, I have a morning routine that I’m addicted to: As said, I wake up naturally between 5:00 am and 5:30 am. I start by journaling in my bed, I then meditate. When I wake up I start by drinking a glass of water with half a lemon juice and half a tsp of baking soda. I then prepare my “morning elixir” (half a lemon juice, 1tbsp cider vinegar, 1 inch grated fresh ginger, 1 garlic clove, 1tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp honey, all of the above being organic). I then do ten minutes of Qi Gong, take a shower, prepare my breakfast, go for a 45-minute walk and then prepare my day in the planner/tracker I’ve designed and will soon be selling. As you may have guessed, self-care is a priority for me.

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

It isn’t one that wasn’t given to me directly, but one I once heard and made mine: “Don’t let anyone tell you your dream is impossible!”

AnYes-163.jpg

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

That is a very challenging question as there are so many that have influenced me at various stages of my development. One of the things I strongly believe in is that our choices create our reality (hence the core of my work being centred around the notion of “Conscious Living and Making Conscious Choices”). Therefore, I would say that currently I would recommend “You’re the Placebo” by Dr. Joe Dispenza.

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

I will be starting a private six-month group coaching program on October 15, 2018. Topics: Clarity, Confidence, mindset, relationship to money, self-care and work-life balance.
Maximum 15 participants. A 90-minute recorded weekly group video coaching call and a private FB page for continuous support. Full payment £997 or six instalments of £197. Early bird bonus if signed up before September 30, 2018: two one-hour 1:2:1 coaching calls with me. Registration is open. For more information set up a discovery consultation with me at: Successfulwomenacademy

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

Everything we do is fear based whether we’re conscious of it or not. My simple definition of fear is that it is the anticipation of something that may happen but that probably won’t. So, the first thing I do to change my mindset is to always ask myself what I’m afraid of. From there I deconstruct the fear by asking myself if it is a fact or an anticipation (it almost never is a fact) and by finding counter proofs of that fear (i.e. situations where I succeeded in what I’m afraid of).

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

You may have noticed how I spell my first name (With a capital Y in it that highlights the YES part of it). That is because I say yes to life and I live in a world of possibilities. What I love most about my work is to help others (women in particular) see that if they can dream it they can make it happen. In essence, I help women realise dreams they didn’t know they had.

  1. Your favourite quote?

Exactly what I said in the previous paragraph: “If you can dream it, you can make it happen” (I have no idea who said that so can’t give anyone credit for it).

Natasha Taylor

  1. What is your name, business name and where are you from?

Hello my name is Natasha Taylor. I am 27, I have 2 gorgeous children and another on the way. I’m the owner of the online shop Deep Soul.

2. What is your business about?

My passion is crystals and holistic healing, we offer a huge range of healing crystals, essential oils, spiritual gifts, distant crystal healing and angel card readings. We like to offer a natural way of helping you with everyday struggles.

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

I always loved crystals as a little girl but not for the amazing healing properties they offered but more for how beautiful they looked. I started a massage course where we had to incorporate crystals into the treatment and it’s like it fired up a passion inside me, I wanted to collect and learn as much as I could about these gorgeous stones, the more my collection grew the more I found myself recommending to friends and family.  About a year after passing my massage exams I was diagnosed with a joint condition which meant I couldn’t continue, I needed to find something I loved and that would fit around my  busy family life then it clicked, I’ve already built up a small customer base with my crystals why not turn this into my work full time. Nearly 1 year on and I haven’t looked back, I have customers all over the  world and am building my business bigger and better every day.

22489830_1958171171089519_6283636327841968326_n.jpg

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

The excitement of not knowing what the day holds, waking up with a positive outlook on the world who knows what might come your way. When I am organised I like to start with a short meditation, read a page or 2 of a book I am reading, draw an angel card for daily guidance, write a list of the main things I need to get done that day, a couple of stretches and finish off with grounding and shielding myself.

5. Whats the best advice you have ever been given?

Live in the now and any negatives that come your way try to see the positive in them.

6. What is the book you would say everyone should read ?

I love raise your vibration by Kyle Gray. He explains exactly what it says in the title with tips and exercises to help you progress.

22007955_10159465996360714_3965018030604963902_n.jpg

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

We are  currently offering 2 distant crystal healing sessions for just £20 if booked at the same time (so you might want one this month and one a couple of months down the line)  normally £15 each.

We are also just about to launch Soul Knowledge – online courses and workshops and I am sure there will be some amazing bargains to be had there.

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

stop ,deep  breathe, remember how amazing you and your life is be grateful always.

9. What do you love most about helping others?

The feeling of gratitude you instantly get when you give someone a lifeline or another option that happens to work for them. Even just a smile makes you really feel like your making a difference to their day.

10. your favourite quote?

Natalee Cooper

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

Hi my name is Natalee Cooper, I am the Owner Director of Enriching Horizons a Coaching,Counselling organisation in Brisbane Australia.

2.What is your business about?

In all areas of my work I am about supporting and empowering people. I am about being real and true and helping others to get real and drop their masks of false persona which I believe leads to living an unhappy life. I am a registered Counsellor and licenced Creatrix® Transformologist™

As a Counsellor I support people with mental health issues.

As a Coach I work with people to reach their potential.

As a Transformologist I use a technique that permanently removes sabotaging blocks, negative self talk and feelings that limit potential. This technique is Creatrix®

We all develop limiting beliefs throughout our lives and develop behaviours and thought patterns that hold us back from being our true selves, fear can be a big reason for this. Breaking free from these can be difficult unless you understand how the unconscious woman’s mind works. These feelings and beliefs sit deeply programmed in our unconscious mind. Creatrix® breaks the old sabotaging beliefs and creates healthy ones. I work together with women to set themselves free so they can live happy fulfilling lives, true to themselves.
3. What made you get into this line of business?

Honestly I saw a need through my own experiences for people needing support. I studied and searched for answers to healing mental health issues particularly anxiety and depression and sought the answer to why many people are living such unhappy lives even though we live in an amazing time and world more connected but disconnected than ever before in history. I have seen the need for something more than just counselling, psychology and spiritual contentedness. I see people who do all these and still suffer, they are still unhappy. Researching further I found Creatrix® a technique that has filled all the gaps that the other modalities and ways of life have missed. I find it incredibly humbling and feel blessed to have found this technique and share it with other women. I love witnessing and facilitating someone to rise out of pain and turmoil to become free, stronger, lighter and happier. It is an experience that I am so grateful to share with them. It is breaking through layers of long-held beliefs, fears and negativity to come out free, renewed and ready to live.
4.What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?

I don’t have a morning routine I believe in going with the flow of how you feel each day. As women we live in a cyclic flow. If we try to force something we don’t feel like we become unhappy and give up. I believe it is best to learn your cycle and to flow with it. When you do this you will no longer feel restricted and you will find a deeper understanding and acceptance in yourself. Self love and compassion is something everyone needs more of.

I get up each morning quite early, I love to watch the blessing of the sun rising another day. It reminds me that we all have chances to start over, renew and be grateful for a new day. I love sharing time with my beautiful family and meeting and supporting the wonderful clients I work with. I am truly blessed.
5.What is the best advice you have ever been given?

The best advice I have been given is to stop pretending everything is perfect, be real, be true. Feel your highs and lows and flow with them. Ask for support if you need help flowing with it. Don’t pretend you are stronger than you feel. Don’t wear masks to hide your true self. When you remove the need to wear these you will feel free, you will be happier.
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?

It’s a book that has just come out by Maz Schirmer called “I’m not Ok WTF do I do now?”
It’s currently available on Amazon  It is a life changer. For anyone who suffers mental health, feelings of worthlessness or suffering in any way, this is a must read. It knocked all other counselling, psychology and self-help books of and went to #1 on Amazon.
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

I am offering a complete in-depth assessment which highlights unconscious sabotaging blocks that stop women living as their true selves and to their full potential. This assessment helps women understand themselves on a deeper level and know what needs to be removed so they can live free from feelings of self-doubt, fear, worthlessness, not good enough etc This is normally $399 I am doing this on special for $99. During September.
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

I use Creatrix® myself as it works to permanently change a negative mindset.
9.What do you love most about helping others?

Watching the transformation after just one session and seeing their faces become instantly lighter and brighter. I love knowing they are free to live full lives free from sabotage and limits. It is a something most people strive for but feel they can never find. Most people even feel it is impossible to permanently remove these beliefs, thoughts and feelings. Many other modalities are not long-lasting. Creatrix® comes with a Full Money Back Guarantee. I love having access to the tool that works.
10. Your favourite quote?

Oh this is a hard one, I have so many.
I would say all my work comes back to this one quote which is about owning our unique selves and not hiding it from the world. 💖

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson
it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
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.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light 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

Rachel Devereux

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

Hi I’m Rachel, I live in Huddersfield, England. I am the founder of Rachel Devereux, Health Nursing.

2.What is your business about?
I work with groups and individuals to help habit changes, in a view of preventing future ill-health, I have had some success in reversal of symptoms of chronic illness, but my main focus is creating health now that is sustainable in our modern-day lives.

3.What made you get into this line of business?
I did a master’s degree in Long-term conditions, this was supposed to support me in my future career progression in nursing people with long-term conditions. However it highlighted that the majority of the NHS budget, and nursing time was spent on these debilitating life limiting illnesses – and many of them are preventable, or better managed if you treat consistently with good diet and lifestyle.

The UK health system is budget based, and many people were complaining that they didn’t fit the criteria for assessment or early intervention. That their General Practitioner ignored their symptoms, or that they didn’t bother the GP out of compassion for how over worked our community/primary health care practitioners are. Friends were taking vitamins without knowing if their body was deficient, and some were on medications with horrendous side effects, that needed a further medication to combat.

Whilst studying I also produced 2 children which awoke my more natural side – and my maternal instinct is high. I realised the mortality of self, and the mortality of off-spring, and wanted/needed to protect them and their environment from harsh chemicals, toxins and a toxic work life balance. I want to show them a great work ethic – but not at the detriment of their or my happiness.

At the end of my degree I set up a sling library, hiring baby and child slings at low-cost to parents – my feel good, give back not for profit venture. I also, after 8 years of loyal customer, joined a MLM company, ENJO, showing the benefits of cleaning without chemicals. As I learnt more from this business I saw the potential for my own coaching role delivering truly holistic health care, with a personal nurse to ensure you are on the right track and that you are making the changes in the best place for you, without burnout or overwhelm. I handed my notice in and began training myself in business development. I have now seen how powerful all three roles are as the health impacts I have through changing the cleaning regime are immense!

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

    Ha ha, yes I have a power routine. It fluctuates in effectiveness. But I have a flexible wish list of morning to ensure that I and my children get the best.

    My goal is for 5am and a Hal Elrod style miracle morning. My reality is often a yoga pose with 2 children dangling from me, or my notebook affectionately named “drawing mummy”.

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

      Believe in yourself.

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

        Nobody Told Me – Hollie McNish

        The Politics of Breastfeeding – Gabrielle Palmer

        I’m very saddened by the way our westernised society disadvantages mothers in so many ways. And that influence is damaging the developing countries too. The Politics of Breastfeeding demonstrates how no individual family have failed to breastfeed, society and massive corporations have undermined our powerful motherhood. I am pro-choice, pro-feeding babies. Breast was our family decision, but I respect your outcome too.

        If that doesn’t appeal then

        The life changing magic of tidying – Marie Kondo.

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

          I have a free Home Health Checklist via my website mail list. This is coming along with 12 weekly emails that help you understand the checklist.

          There is a sneaky 20% off code for an hours consultation with me, so why not book the free initial chat and see if we’re a good match.

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

            I have awesome alarms to remind me of my goals and my mindset.

            9.What do you love most about helping others?

              I am a nurse, it’s a way of life and something that came up time and time again in career profiles. I was the mother hen, the protector and the fixer at school. I was also the chief tree swing tester. It lights me up to get messages saying I haven’t needed my blue inhaler for 2 weeks or my eczema has improved.

              Fiona Clark

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

              Hi, I am Fiona Clark The Midlife Energiser and live in Surrey, UK.

              2. What is your business about ?

              With extensive experience in personal development. My passion is to empower midlifers who have lost their ‘mojo’ to reconnect to their true being and feel confident, free and at balance within themselves.

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

              I started my journey in 1991 when I trained as a Kinesiologist after having a car accident. I further trained as a Reflexologist, Theta Healer, EFT Practitioner, Life Coach plus much more. It was while living in Asia when my ex husband left me that led me into working with the ‘Midlife’ niche. Having gone through my own challenges and so often hearing ‘midlife’ described as a ‘crisis’ I am determined to change the perception as I see it as a time of reinvention, a time to be your true self, confident, free and empowered.

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

              Yes my morning routine is the most important time of the day. It starts with a large glass of lemon water before I meditate, (chant), go for a 45 min walk and then do some yoga. I am also a keen cyclist so I do that at the weekend. Walking and cycling are my ‘moving meditations’! My morning routine sets my mindset and it is the time I am inspired by thoughts and ideas and creation takes place!

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

              Best advise I have been given, gosh that is a great question! Well I have had many but one that comes to mind that I would always tell myself after having a tough day when going through my divorce is ‘tomorrow is another day’ leave the doubts, fears and regrets behind and start again. Learn from the experience and see the gift out of each challenge, as there always is one even if you don’t see it straight away…

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

              The first thing I do when I want to change my mindset is to focus on my breath, be in the moment and then if needed I continue with some tapping to let go of any negative thinking… (vital to leave the negative mind chatter behind)

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

              I would highly recommend ready Bruce Liptons book The Biology of Belief where he explains the science of how thoughts create life. If you haven’t read then order it now!

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

              Yes I have a fabulous offer for you! I have just started ‘The Energy Balance Approach Membership Club’ as I am passionate about helping as many people as I can and this is the best way to reach people who cannot afford 1-1 coaching but still want to learn more about personal development and to feel supported at the same time. I am incorporating many of the skills and techniques I have learned over the last 25+ years into this membership.

              We will be focusing on a theme each week, have a training session once a month and a guest speaker once a month too. Q&A session once a week. There will be many resources available eg ‘tapping’ (FasterEFT) videos, meditations and many other energy techniques that deal with stress, anxiety and sleepless nights! The key focus is about what you can do to feel empowered, confident and at peace within yourself to deal with day-to-day life.

              I have a special offer for founding members at £20 per month single membership or £30 per month for 2 people. This will be for a limited period.

              Imagine knowing that you can watch a video, be a part of masterminds and deal with any stressful situation when the time suits you.

              9. What do you love most about helping others? 

              What I am most passionate about is inspiring others to help themselves and I like to do that by sharing skills, strategies and techniques so everyone has their own ‘kit bag’. In fact we already are our own healer, we just need to listen quietly enough to know what to do to bring ourselves back to a place of self-love, confidence and inner harmony.

              10. Your Favourite quote?

              This is one of my favourite quotes by Mahatma Ghandi, it says it all! Our mindset is what controls everything positive and negative!

              YOUR BELIEFS BECOME YOUR THOUGHTS

              YOUR THOUGHTS BECOME YOUR WORDS

              YOUR WORDS BECOME YOUR ACTIONS

              YOUR ACTIONS BECOME YOUR HABITS

              YOUR HABITS BECOME YOUR VALUES

              YOUR VALUES BECOME YOUR DESTINY

              Mahatma Gandhi

              She Steps Up Has Merch!!

              I am so excited to be sharing this with you all!

              So a few weeks ago I was meditating as I do each day and the idea for She Steps Up Merchandise was born. I had the colours, the images, the whole concept come to me. I have spoken to so many designers and in the end I went with a fab one who has created these amazing graphics.

              I wanted the images to be bright, colourful, powerful and just radiate female empowerment. I think they really do show all of that and more, I really am so proud of what they look like.

              I have spoken on many an occasion about my vision for She Steps Up and my Women Of Wisdom feature, it is turning it is turning into something much bigger than I could have seen happening. I am one very proud blogger!

              So here they are….

              She Steps Up 

              My second design is for all you Women Of Wisdom out there, it is perfect if you have actually featured as a Women Of Wisdom too. You can wear it and be proud of how far you have come and the wisdom you share.

              Women Of Wisdom 

              The final design and I think this is my fave image. This is how I see myself and many women I know a Lioness wearing her grown. I think this is such a powerful image!

              Bree Marie

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

              I’m Bree Marie from livingbreely.com. I was born in San Diego, California. I am a blogger, online course creator, mindset and success strategist and as of late, a podcast host.

              2. What is your business about? 

              I help women grow their mindset so they can live more fulfilled, mindful and purpose-driven lives. I love to work with millennial women who want to learn to capitalize their skills and build an online business. I focus not only on business strategies but also with the mindset growth that is required to become successful.

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

              I first started with my blog, livingbreely.com, as a way to document the things that I was doing to heal my anxiety. It then morphed into course creation and 1:1 coaching and I’ve just launched a podcast a few weeks ago. I learned to re purpose my pain and use it to help other women who are looking to take their knowledge and turn it into an online business.

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

              What makes me get up in the morning is my dog Cleo. Literally! That is my alarm clock and a quick 10-15 minute walk is always on the agenda. I’m very big on morning and evening routines. I get the blood flowing during my walk then I come home and meditate, eat breakfast and journal for about 10-15 minutes. I always sketch out what my day is going to look like the night before. This really helps me stay on track with projects, interviews and deadlines. Anyone who wants to work from home needs to have a routine that works for them especially because the middle parts of our day can be very spontaneous.

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

              The best advice I have ever been given was “messy action is better than inaction.” I had a mentor tell me this when I was about 18 years old but it never really resonated with me until I started to build my business. It’s very easy to get caught up in trying to make everything perfect before you launch it or try to have the perfect outline or plan for something but experience has taught me that nothing really goes according to plan. So I’m much more relaxed when it comes to trying new things in my business because everything is, as Marie Forleo says, ‘figureoutable!’

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

              I am a huge bookworm! I read about 3 books a month so this is a tough one for me! This year, a few books that have really stood out to me are: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and This Thing Called You by Ernest Holmes. I also love anything written by Malcom Gladewell or Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

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

              I have two courses that are open all year round. One is called MindfulnessU Stress Mastermind and it’s all about using the mindfulness practice to redefine your relationship with stress. If you’re not familiar with Mindfulness, I have a ton of free resources on my blog and I also go over it in the beginning of the course to catch everyone up to speed. I also have the 21-Day Mindset Shift course, which I share, tested and proven practices that are designed to shift and grow your mindset in 21 Days. If you’re new to mindset work – this is a great place to start!

              A Morning Routine

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

              1 thing I do to shift my mindset instantly is – take a walk. I really undervalued the power of a quick 20-minute walk when I first started my mindset journey! Whenever I’m feeling stressed, overwhelmed or anxious – a walk behind these trails that I have behind my apartment are where you can find me! But beyond that – I think that shifting your mindset is gradual. I know it’s easy to look for MAJOR shifts or changes in our lives but sometimes it’s the little things that you do consistently everyday that add up to a making a big difference. Anyone who has worked with me will tell you that before we do anything else – I will have them start drinking a gallon of water every day. They think I’m crazy but this accomplishes 2 things; 1. It’s a health thing, you’re flushing out toxins, hydrating, and helping your liver detox and just all of the wonderful things that water does for our body and 2. It’s about them proving to themselves that they can actually DO something and be consistent with it. So many women come to me and say that they can never be consistent or stick with something and this tiny shift of drinking a gallon of water everyday gets them in that headspace of ‘I CAN do this.’

              9. What do you love most about helping others?

              The thing I love most about helping women is seeing them breakthrough limiting beliefs. It’s the power of human will at its finest hour. When someone comes to me and they tell me is ‘Oh, I could NEVER have a successful business’ or ‘that’s just impossible for me!’ or even ‘there is no way that could work!’ And then they do the thing that they said they could never do …that sparkle in their eye, the power in their voice and the energy they give off – that is the most rewarding part of what I do.

              10. Your favourite quote?

              My favorite quote by Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

              My modern-day interpretation of this quote is to forget the haters and critics (this is especially important as an online entrepreneur!) Be brave. It’s better to try something and fail at it than not try at all.
