Ellie Jackson

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

4.Your favourite quote?

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

7. What do you love most about helping others?

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

Emma Bowyer

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

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

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

  1. What is your business about?

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

20180511_123033.jpg

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

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

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

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

20180216_200206

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

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

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

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

For twin Mummas the incredibly useful book

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

20181031_162139(0).jpg

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

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

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

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

 

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

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

 

  1. Your favourite quote?

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

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

Stacey Matthews

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

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

And my business is called Becoming Mum.

  1. What is your business about?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

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

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

  1. Your favourite quote?

Oh gosh there are so many but right now Id say

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

Katie Silverthorne

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

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

2.What is your business about?

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

28059282_10156363073456189_2565814448082662150_n

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

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

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

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

28958440_10155093420236396_6710800178531532800_n

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9. What do you love most about helping others?

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

10. Your favourite quote?

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

Charlie Edwards

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

4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
O.M Goddess everyone needs a morning routine. How you start your day sets the tone. I use a mixture of morning routines that I’ve picked up over the years and moulded into something that now works for me.  I highly recommend the book Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod for anyone looking for a way to get their butt out of bed and change their mindset and life for the better.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Good Question. Do you know I’m not sure? I’ll tell you the piece of advice I give to everyone though. Choose your F-Word Wisely. Just when you think you are f***ed turns out you just gotta have faith that it will work out. The Universe is always listening and you must remember it always working for you not against you. If there is a roadblock it’s because the universe has something better for you.
28167260_880272868799360_5656268483415285183_n
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
Oh without a doubt its Ask and it is Given By Ester Hicks & Abraham. This book changed my life.
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I’m about to launch my goal setting workbook and then next spring my book is being published. There are always offers sent out with my monthly Newsletter. I haven’t decided this months offer yet. I have some amazing followers. So I always make sure they have a discount code. Being of service and grateful is essential.
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Oh gosh, there are so many things you can do. Music is the easiest one. Put your favourite high vibe song on really loud and dance like a loon around the room. It shakes off those low vibes and gives you the good feels. If that’s not an option then think of 5 things that you are grateful for. If you struggle with this then think of smaller things. The more you do it the easier it becomes. There is always something to be grateful for.
9. What do you love most about helping others?
I love to see my clients living the life they were wishing for. Sometimes its small changes, sometimes its big changes. The part I love the most are the emails I get from Clients with photos of them travelling or in their new job. Or when I wake up to a simple Thank you message for a reading I sent out the night before. It’s the best feeling to help another.
10. Your favourite quote?
‘Your Crown has been Bought and paid for. All you must do is put it on’ – Maya Angelo.
I have this above my desk to remind me every day that women have fought for me to be where I am today. And that we no longer have to apologise for who we are. Just focusing on what is rising in us.

Christine Lavulo

  1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
My name is Christine Lavulo and I am the owner of Christine Lavulo Coaching. I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been married almost 21 years and have 5 sons ages 9-27. I also have a grandson who just turned 4 today.

2. What is your business about?

My business is about helping women overcome the blocks, sabotages and fears that hold them back and creating custom strategies they can easily implement to create their most beautiful life.

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

I got into this business by sheer divine inspiration. 8 years ago I decided to separate from my husband and it was a year-long journey that taught me about myself, about people and how to truly have peace and successful relationships. I especially realized that I had the power to create what I wanted to experience. It seems women especially tend to lose themselves in serving their families and meeting the demands that are placed on them through work, family and charitable things we feel called to. And its important that if we lose ourselves, we find ourselves again.

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

I am working on being more consistent with my morning power routine (Power Hour or Miracle Morning). When I’m on the ball, I get up at 6am, read scriptures and say a prayer, expressing gratitude. Then I meditate to receive inspiration. I do a short yoga DVD and if time permits I read some other inspirational book. I work to also do a quick affirmation and visualisation session in the morning.

CLOSE UP ROYAL 1

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

The best advice I have ever been given is to take 100% responsibility for my life. I create/cause my world. I can choose to think happy, positive thoughts or be stuck in negativity and that choice will create my experience.

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

I think the #1 must read for absolutely everyone is a hard one because I have so many! However, I loved “Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting” by Lyn Grabhorn. This was life changing for me at the time I read it because it was my first introduction to the law of attraction. It was an easy read and I felt it made it more tangible-easier to understand. At the same time I have to say that The Success Principles is life changing for sure! And those basic principles can truly change your life in a big way when implemented.

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

Right now I am working on new offers so while I can’t say I have one right this second, I could definitely come up with one in a short period of time. 🙂

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

My #1 thing I do to change my mindset instantly is apply E+R=O. That is always on my mind and when I find myself sinking I just ask myself what I can take responsibility for and start telling a new story.

LIGHT BLUE 1

9. What do you love most about helping others?

It’s selfish but I love the way I feel when I know I’ve positively impacted someone’s life. It feels good to me and it’s incredible satisfying. When you see someone making progress and you know it’s because of something you did or said, it’s hugely rewarding!

10. Your favourite quote?

“Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be”. _Goethe.

How To Get Sales Every Time!

Welcome, so today I want to talk to you about a few things you can do in order to get clients and make a sale every time. Yes you heard me right, EVERY-TIME!

As a copywriter my job is to write in a way that is hypnotic and persuasive to get that person agreeing from the first line all the way down the text to the sale. I then get them to purchase. It is a skill I am not going to lie but once you perfect it, it is gold.

So I wanted to share some things I have learnt that can help you, this is also my first blog post for the Business Mum Network.

The first thing and one of the most important things is to get inside the clients head, what do they want from you or your product? What problems are you solving for them? What is their pain? What does their life look like? What do they want their life to look like?

If you have no clue then you need to be asking? Put a poll out, create a questionnaire, speak to your clients and ask them why they picked you or your product. Once you know this you can direct everything to this in words and text and those clients will think you have been in their house or mind seeing exactly what they want. People love to feel special and like you care. You will never be able to put a price on giving a client that experience.

You don’t have to remind them of the pain to get them to buy change! Now this is something I recently learnt you can get someone to buy something on the outcome alone. You do not have to make them feel even worse about the situation they are in now to buy.

Example: if you are a money mindset coach and your clients are people who are in debt and want to change their relationship with money you can get them to join your coaching by selling what you can offer them and the vision of the future they want. They will feel so low if you tell them about their debt, losing their house, not being able to afford food etc they already know this so don’t make it worse. Let’s make them feel good about the future.

Personality Sells! 

If you write as you speak your personality comes across and this is a big seller, you will build client trust this way too.

Another big tip from me is directing your client, when I say this I mean in the writing you put out make it hypnotic to read. Like a really good book they will not want to put down and carry on until the end. You can do this by putting a hook or leading question at the beginning that draws their attention. Want to make £5000 in one day? that would grab your attention right?

Then back up what you just said by telling them how you can do this and why they should pick you, facts and figures back this up. If you tell them that you managed to lose 3 stone in 3 months this is a personal testimonial and is giving proof.

Then price or call here section the grand finale! The key here is to just put it simple and tell them exactly what you want them to do CALL NOW, BUY HERE!! 

Another great tip is KEEP IT SIMPLE! Do not over complicate it or use big words. Keep to the points you do not want to send clients away by talking too much, and not everyone will understand the words you use.

I hope you have found this helpful if you would like to see more of this please go to my Facebook Page where I do daily tips and Facebook Lives on similar topics.
