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.”

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.

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!

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

Danielle Grant

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

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

  1. What is your business all about?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Aladdin Factor by Jack Canfield

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

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

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

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

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

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

  1. Your favourite quote?

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

Brooke Allison

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

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

  1. What is your business about? 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

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

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

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

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

37small.jpg

  1. What do you love most about helping others? 

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

  1. Your favourite quote?

Oh gosh, there are so many..way too many to choose one so I will leave you with a quote I wrote the other day as a reminder to constantly follow the fun and say yes to what you truly desire!

“Stop saying no to your soul desires! Every time you say no to a true soul desire, you give your power away and a new fear is born!” -Brooke Allison

Sophie Coltburn

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

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

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

Carol Moses

My name is Carol Moses and 9 months ago after spending most of my adult life as an actress. I became my own boss when I set up PORTOBELLO TOM. I want to give you a quick insight as to why Portobello Tom exists and why I now make affirmation bracelets alongside my European charm bracelets.

My story:

A West Londoner through and through, I grew up near Portobello Road where as kids we used to call jewellery ‘Tom’ hence the name Portobello Tom.

My mother was a ‘gym slip mum’ and too young to handle the responsibility of raising a child so my grandmother brought me up as her own with her 3 boys on a little estate in Latimer Road, West London. I’m telling you this because I want you to get an understanding of my relationship with my gran. She was my everything and I didn’t really know how to love anyone else on that kind of level until I had my first child, Akira.

16 years ago, my grandmother suddenly passed away from throat cancer even though she had never smoked a single cigarette in her whole life, go figure.

3 weeks after my grandmothers sad passing my mother and uncles decided they were going to the Caribbean to sort out my grandmother’s affairs (she had spent the last 10 years of her life living on her home Island of Dominica).

There was no question as far as I was concerned, Akira and I were going with them. Now, Akiras dad didn’t want her to go but I was adamant, she was going with me. We were going to be celebrating her 3rd birthday in Dominica and in a funny way it gave the family something to look forward to whilst there. I struggled with the guilt of that choice for years.

5 days into the trip, 6 weeks after my grandmother passed, 2 days before her 3rd birthday Akira contracted meningococcal septicaemia and died within 24 hrs of the symptoms appearing.  On February 4th 2001, my life fell apart and it has taken 16 long years to try to pull the pieces together, but pull them together I have.

Now, my story is not about how cruel life is but rather about how strong we human beings are. How amazing the human spirit is. In the pursuit of happiness and healing I’ve discovered many things. I’ve discovered happiness is a right for all.

That includes me and you. It sounds obvious, but it was something I forgot whilst battling the depression and alcohol abuse that came about as a result of losing Akira. I just didn’t know how to cope. I went into free fall, I lost my self-confidence, my faith and my long-held belief that life was supposed to be enjoyed.  When my beautiful, intelligent, spirited daughter passed away life stopped making any sense.

Over the years I found much attention was given to the victims of meningitis and the disease itself and rightly so by the way. But there is another side of the story. There is the family that is left behind when a person passes away. Aunties, uncles, siblings, grandparents, cousins and most importantly parents who now have to find a way of living the rest of their life rather than just existing as I did for many years.

We have to find a purpose, a reason to carry on breathing and living. We must remember how strong we are. Unlike most people I had to find a reason to be happy rather than just being happy. So, you see, I had to rediscover my amazingness as a matter of survival.

We are all going to go through pain at some point, but as long as we believe and hang on in there, we will always come out the other end of our journey stronger. This is why I have created the JOURNEY range. Initially I thought I was creating something specifically to reminded those who had been left behind that they are strong. That they are amazing, because walking through the fire of grief is not easy. It takes superhuman strength at times, but we can do it and come out the other end feeling blessed to have had our loved ones in our lives, no matter how short that time was.

But it has turned into a lot more, because everybody and I mean everybody needs reminding at some point of how strong they are. Not only those who have suffered bereavement but anyone who has been through, a rocky patch, anyone who has had to overcome, anyone who needs reminding they are a hero for carrying on, anyone who needs to be told to carry on because they are worth it and worthy.

The main charms I use on my Portobello Tom ‘JOUREY’ bracelet and what they represent:

I put a tree of life charm on there to remind the wearer that life is forever growing and that they are rooted to something bigger than just themselves. We are connected to a life source we must remember that.

Then there is the teardrop charm, it symbolises the tears you have cried. All stories of strength have a tear or two involved. But those tears did not stop you from moving forward. You have got from there to here. Yes, you may cry again but it will always be ok not to be ok for a time. You will make sure you get up, you will find the strength to keep moving forward…you always have.

I’ve also added a reminder to revel in your playful side in the presence of a child-like charm on the JOURNEY bracelet. Your laughter is important, the world needs it. Did you know smiling gives off positive energy? Smile.

Finally, I have a musical note or treble base. This is to remind you to talk your truth, your voice is important. When I went through my trauma I lost faith in my own voice. Everyone else’s opinion held more weight than my own, even when it came to dealing with my own life. However, we are all entitled to our own opinion and to travel our Journey as we see fit, and that’s what the musical note represents.

I will be donating 10% of the profits from the ‘Journey’ affirmation bracelets to Meningitis Now.  When I needed help in the early days of my daughter’s passing, when I just couldn’t see a future with me in it they were there for me so now I want to what I can to give back in some way.

Here’s to a wonderful life.

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.”

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

I got into this business because I wanted to help people. I qualified as a counsellor 8 years ago and worked as a relationship counsellor for many years.  I took a large break from work after suffering from severe stress, an emotional breakdown and anorexia. That experience changed me a lot and I look at life differently. I came to realise that I was 100% responsible for my well-being and happiness and loving me needed to be my first priority. As a result of my experiences I now want to help women become responsible for their well-being and happiness and become comfortable with the skin they are in.

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

I get up about 5am and I go walking along the beach and I watch the sunrise. I take my shoes off and walk bare foot along the sand. This is my favourite time of day. I meditate and I breathe deeply soaking up the magic of the day. I self-talk to myself….giving myself a pep talk to start my day with confidence.

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

The best advice I have ever been given is “Surround yourself with good people.” My dad told me this.

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

A book I would recommend is “The subtle art of not giving a fuck” by Mark Manson. I have read this book 3 times and he really puts a different spin on things.

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

If I want to change my mindset instantly I tell myself………”STOP IT!!!!!” Our egos are very cunning at talking us into bullshit. It’s our responsibility to recognise it and cut it before our minds get carried away.

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I love helping women move forward. Seeing a woman stuck where she is when she could be so much more inspires me to want to help if they are ready.

10. Your favourite quote?

My favourite quote is “What you focus on grows”

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

I try to start each day “on my terms,” so to speak, and begin by setting an intention for the day. I usually wake up around 4:30 to workout, meditate, and drink my coffee. It’s hard for me to imagine starting the day any other way. My children are usually up by the time I’m done and I’m a much better mom when I am exercised and caffeinated.

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

Trust in the process and the results will come. I’m a very goal-oriented person but sometimes tend to focus too much on the outcome and not enough on the process. I’ve learned over time that while the destination is important, the journey is really what matter most.

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


There are so many books I love, but the one that I have been recommending lately is “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. It was a game changer for me.

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


We are currently recruiting participants for online mental resiliency training program called BODYmind Boot Camp. It’s an intensive 6-week, rapid-result, action-oriented, group-based stress-reduction training program designed for women to help manage or prevent symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress and burnout.

 

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

Take a breath and focus on the present moment. I remind myself that everything is as it should be. During difficult times, I challenge myself to find the lesson and be grateful for it.  

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I love helping people develop greater self-awareness and insight into themselves and why they do what they do. I love helping people get “unstuck.” The magic happens when they start putting real changes into effect by taking action and experiencing life differently, and in a way that is truly and powerfully fulfilling. I love hearing people’s stories, hearing about their lives, what they overcame, and what they hope to accomplish. Then I love watching them make it happen.

 

10. Your favourite quote?

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

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.

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.

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.
