Jo Fitzgerald

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

I’m Jo Fitzgerald, I’m originally from Kent, I lived and worked in the Middle East for 17 years – where I brought up my two gorgeous children, Sam and Anya. We now live in West Sussex, where I am blessed to be the MIBA Coordinator.

 What is your business about?

My company is Tiny Sponges. I have always been a teacher, in very many roles. I have been a Deputy Head in a Pupil Referral Unit, I ran a Nursery in Muscat, Oman for The British Council but my real passion is Early Years. I started Tiny Sponges two years ago, I wanted to help parents teach their children wellbeing and resilience skills. Mental Health is hugely important to me, I have lost close family members to suicide, my mum was an alcoholic and I have Bipolar Type 2 – and was recently treated for PTSD. Quite a mixed bag!! I have seen first hand, how more children have anxiety issues and mental health conditions, and how little help there is out there for them and their families. I believe that, if we teach our children well-being and resilience skills from an early age, they are better equipped to cope with life’s obstacles.

 What made you get into this line of business?

I have written two children’s books, one of which is now in schools across West Sussex, along with a Scheme Of Work for teachers to teach Mental health and safeguarding to their pupils. We have also been in collaboration with a leading Danish educationalist, and are now the sole distributor of her resources in the UK and Ireland. These positive mindset resources are used in schools and families across Denmark, and have had amazing results with both wellbeing and learning outcomes. We are exhibiting at The Education Show in London this year, and our aim is to get all of our resources into as many schools as possible in the coming year. I also have two more books ready for publication, and am collaborating with a couple of other people on two more. I write a Blog, published by the Pre-school Learning Alliance and Early Years Matters. I speak at conferences on Child Safeguarding and Mental Health. Our online courses go live this year. The huge Childcare insurance company Morton Michel have bought my ‘How To Keep Safe … in a sometimes crazy world’ book in bulk, and are about to start selling it on their website … things are on the up!

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

My morning routine consists of a walk with the dogs, a green juice and straight into the office (at home). My ‘to-do’ list gets me up in the morning! The best advice that I have recently been given is from Leona Burton, CEO of the ‘Mums In Business Association’ who recently spoke at one of our West Sussex meeting. One of her golden nuggets of advice was to block your time every day in your planner – and stick to it – i.e. one hour for social media, one hour for emails, one hour for writing … I often compare myself to the dog in the film ‘Up’, constantly distracted by “squirrel” “squirrel.” I really need the discipline of blocking time!

_mg_3944

What is a book you would say everyone must read?

One of the resources that we have brought over from Denmark is about strengths of character – and how they help with our general well-being and quality of life. I would really recommend reading the ‘Mumprenuer On Fire’ series of books (especially MOF 4, as I am one of the co-authors). My reason is this – women in business are all on a similar journey, we all know how difficult it can be to juggle business, family and life, the stress and the worry is regular and familiar. In these books the stories of women battling through huge adversity, HUGE adversity, are a real lesson and can teach us a lot about ourselves. We all have strengths – bravery, perseverance, grit, gratitude … and we should recognise them in ourselves and use them. We need to have a realistic and positive love for ourselves and our strengths, instead of focussing on our weaknesses – what we don’t know or don’t have, and berating ourselves.

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

The one thing I do to change my mindset in an instant, is to practice gratitude. I have so very much to be grateful for in my life. I am blessed.

What do you love most about helping others?

Two of my top strengths are kindness and social intelligence. I love going into schools, and seeing how my books make a difference. The feedback I get is gratifying and quite wonderful – it feeds my soul! I get a huge buzz from my work as a MIBA coordinator too. Watching people on their journey, meeting them, supporting them, getting them help – watching collaborations and friendships form. I use my strengths to help make a difference – and the Universe always responds by sending great things my way, and placing them in my lap!!

Your favourite quote?

My favourite quote, though I have so many, is by Dr Seuss – it’s what my teaching is all about:

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

Jennica Collado

1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
I’m Jennica Collado, a Confidence + Visibility Coach from the Philippines.
 
2. What is your business about?
I work with introverted, intuitive women in business who are afraid to rise and show up in their businesses because they feel like frauds, they are worried about being accepted for who they are, they prefer to hide than to shine and be visible. I help them think better, see themselves as guides, be who they truly are un- apologetically, and be confidently visible.
 
3. What made you get into this line of business?
What made me get into this line of business is a decade of unconsciously working on myself as I move through life. In retrospect, every decision, twist, and turn I committed to led me to learn more about how to be more open and expansive. In the past several months, I deepened my inner work by working on a lifelong struggle with problematic eating. I was very resistant as I prefer to invest time, energy, and money on business coaching instead of therapy. But I trusted my intuition enough that I allowed myself to be led by it. After 4 sessions with my coach/therapist, looking at the mirror is mindblowing. What I previously saw as distortion and ugly is now beautiful, acceptable, and well… Thinner than I’ve ever seen myself. And mind you, I didn’t lose a single pound. That says a lot about the illusion we allow our minds to believe.
 
That experience, one that I’m continuously working on until now, has led me to see myself differently. So different that it uncovered the light and confidence that I innately knew is already in me. And yes, all these self love, self worth, and certainty led me to leave a business of pure strategy to one of healing and transformation. That’s how my confidence and visibility coaching business was born.
 
color-blur.jpeg
4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
Ooh yes, I love morning routines! It is an evolving set of activities for me but one that’s structured enough for me to commit to it but flexible enough for me to not beat myself up if each activity isn’t done perfectly. I start the day by enjoying my comfy bed and placing my hand on my chest, feeling so much gratitude for where I am and where I’m going. I then prepare my celery juice, bring it to the balcony for some wealth consciousness reading (currently reading “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill). Since my apartment is near the pool where my neighbors’ kids play in the morning, I go back inside to peacefully journal my morning thoughts. After elevating my vibe, I prepare a cup of tea and grab my yoga mat for yoga with YogaGlo.
 
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
“Whatever you do or say is filtered through the lens of others’ experiences. What they say about you is about them.” I saw this on Instagram at the perfect moment and thinking about it every time I need to has helped me stay on my own lane, shine my light, and live unapologetically.
 
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
“The Law of Divine Compensation” by Marianne Williamson.
 
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
Yes! I am currently offering a program to jumpstart 2019! It’s a 30-day private coaching program with me where you would walk away with activated of ease, expansion, and confidence with online visibility. This includes mindset work using the cognitive behavioral approach, bespoke strategies on social media, email list building, and content creation, optimization of Facebook and Instagram accounts, and strong support through weekly 60-minute calls and unlimited Voxer support.
 
If you book a slot by December 31st, this will be USD500. Then the price goes up once we hit 2019. If this resonates with you, feel into the energy… We’re meant to work together.

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

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.

37984088_10156845803466189_6918664952001593344_n

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

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.

Christina Hall

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

I am Christina Hall, my business is called JoyfuelLife and I am originally from Germany, but now live in Washington State with my family (husband Rian, 3, 5-year-old daughter Katie and rescue dog Dexter).

2. What is your business about?

My business is about educating others about a holistic lifestyle concept, giving them the chance to living it and also paying it forward to others. I am all about health and wellness for the body as well as the mind and creating an environment (personal and professional) that will help you and others thrive. I am also part of a team that come from different backgrounds but have common values and interests. One of the biggest ones it to help other people improve their quality of life so that they have more time for themselves, their families, their friends, their hobbies and everything else that matters to them.

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

I have had a traditional career as a digital marketing manager, something that I thought I would be doing my whole life. But after a couple of years in the business, my health declined (I have a viral immune disease) and the outlook of being able to combining a good living with my family plans wasn’t looking too good, especially with the demanding hours and expectations that are placed on females in the traditional workforce these days. I have tried different work from home jobs, working for international corporations, small agencies to different type of direct sales and even bitcoin businesses. But nothing really stuck with me until I found this lifestyle concept which allows me to implement my three passions into one “job” and getting to pay it forward each and every day.

2(Social) (1)

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

This is a good question. I love to sleep in and value a good night of sleep. 😉 But what really keeps me going is my goals and my big vision. I want to pave the way for my daughter as well as for all the other moms out there to show them that you can really have it all: Be and do you, follow your dreams, have a career and have a family that doesn’t know you just from pictures.
I just started to follow the miracle morning routine and I love it as it gives me an outline how to spend my morning wisely and efficiently.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Change expectation for appreciation. I have gotten a lot of advice over the years. This one just came my way just recently and it makes the most sense to me. We all expect something when we do certain things. If we help a friend out, we expect that he will return the favour if the need arises. This thinking however, keeps us living in fear and in a lack mentality. Instead of thinking that way, we should refocus and be grateful that we were able to help out our friend when he needed us.

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

I love reading books and there are way too many that I would like to mention. But for me there are two that really helped me personally: The Success Principles by Jack Canfield and You’re a Badass by Jen Sincero. It doesn’t matter where you are at in your life but I feel like both of these books can definitely have an impact on you. And then of course, re-read them every so often as you will find answers to different questions you might have.

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

The offer is always there to check out what my team and I are doing and to see if it might be a good fit for you as well. As we like to say, the concept is for everyone, but not everyone is made for the concept. 😉

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

There is not just 1 thing but the first thing I do is to assess my thoughts and rewire them as soon as I become aware of them. I have been really diving deep into personal development and the tools, tips and tricks that I have learned in my studies are definitely my go-to for changing my mindset.

 

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I love seeing their passion and joy coming back to their eyes. When they actually dare to dream again and begin to understand that they can really do, be and have anything they want!

10. Your favourite quote?

I have a lot of favourite quotes but this one is pretty good I think: “Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt. ~Unknown

5 Tips how you can start earning money today!

I wanted to share with you today some new career options or side hustle options you can start today with little lay out and start earning straight away. In my time I have tried these and they do work.

  1. Arts and Crafts

Do you have a talent or skill you could put to use, there are literally hundreds of craft sites on Facebook that you can use to sell you work. Etsy is a great place to create a shop and get people buying from you on a regular basis and from all over the world, it is also really easy to set up and manage.

2. Dog Walking and Pet Sitting 

If you are like me and love animals then this is for you, this is also one of the cheapest businesses you can start-up. I had my dog walking business for a year and was bringing in a regular income each month. Most families have a pet of some sort and are always looking for reliable people to look after their pets when they are at work or when they go on holiday. Make sure you invest in some good water proof clothing, poop bags, treats, and good footwear too!

3. Network Marketing

Not everyone’s cup of tea but it is a very good way to make money and it can change lives I have seen it happen to a lot of people I know. I have also done this and if you do all the training and put the effort in you will be rewarded very well for your efforts. The investments can be anything from Free to £300, I would just say make sure you find a product and company you love, and look at the plan. Do the research and you will be fine.

4. Virtual Assistant

If like me you love organisation and writing this is for you. As we are in an age where so many people are creating six figure online businesses they are wanting to hire people to help them with their work. There is a great course and website for all VA advice The VA Handbook  as a virtual assistant you can charge hourly rates so if you get regular work his can become a very lucrative business.

5. Coaching & Teaching

Do you love helping people, maybe you are really skilled in social media. Then coaching could be for you, if you have something that can help change people’s lives or businesses people will pay you to help them. You can offer small courses, masterclasses and then one to one coaching. It is also a very profitable business and I know a lot of coaches which earn six figures a month.

I would love to know if you have any other tips or business ideas that cost little to start but you can earn big with. Have you tried any of the above?

Have a wonderful day.
