How is 2018 treating you so far? Did you know that last Monday was 'Blue Monday'? Apparently the day of the year when people are at their most sad, all the excitement of Christmas over and not much to look forward to. Apparently being back in work and Summer being a good few months away is enough reason to want to forget the New Year altogether and hibernate.

Well, this may be the case for some people, where I come from we don't need a holiday company making up days and telling us when to feel happy or sad. That said it is worth noting that Blue Monday is indeed the week before it is...

If you missed January Empower and last week's blog, first and foremost I'd like to wish you a very Happy New Year, with greater confidence, balance and clarity for the year ahead.

How has the first week of 2018 treated you so far? Can you believe we're already a week into 2018?

I do hope you're well and have had an enjoyable festive period with your families and loved ones. I've heard from many clients, colleagues and friends that have unfortunately been afflicted with all sorts of bugs over Christmas, including quite a few with full-blown flu. If this was you, I hope you're now fighting...

Happy New Year!

Today is a special day for numerous reasons, the start of a new year, a chance to start with a clean slate and Empower, our monthly newsletter has been published for the 100th time. Today our 100th Anniversary edition was sent out and we thought a celebration was called for. When this journey started, the newsletter was sent out quarterly but has been of benefit to our Empower community of mums and mumpreneurs for nine years, providing advice, inspiration and support helping them overcome the daily challenges mums face.

For all the advice and support we have shared over the...

Merry Christmas!

With only six days to go until the end of the year, its worth taking time to reflect on the past 12 months but also to look forward to 2018 and all the possibilities that are open for you. You’ve made it to the end of another year, collected many memories and overcome many obstacles, no matter how minor, along the way. It’s time to celebrate all you’ve achieved.

Relax, have that glass of prosecco and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Have an amazing Christmas and a New Year without a shred of worry, for now, it’s time to enjoy yourself. You can keep...

Christmas is fast approaching. A time of excitement for most, it can invoke a feeling of stress. The expectations we place on ourselves to have the 'perfect' Christmas, whether that is doing the cooking or trying to keep everyone happy. Whether we celebrate Christmas or not, it is the one day of the year everything pretty much grinds to a halt and forces us to slow down and gives us the opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

The closer we get to C-Day, the more we tend to dash around trying to finish our tasks before the holidays start. No-one wants to end up spending Christmas morning...

With December fast approaching it’s the perfect time to reflect on the year so far. I imagine that you’ve achieved many of the things you set out to do and possibly some things that you didn't set out to. Congratulations! You have made it this far. It is quite likely you didn't achieve everything you wanted to this year but we aren't as the end of the year just yet so there is still time.

Even the most committed of us are likely to take our eye off the proverbial ball at some point or encounter challenges that completely throw us off track. You’re not going to achieve...

In my last post I asked the question: What does success mean to you and what will you do to get it? I talked about the fact success of course means different things to different people. For some monetary success is paramount, whilst for others it can change weekly according to what makes them happy at any given time.

You have to know what success means to you before you can set out to pursue it. Once you have some clarity around what will truly make you happy you are in the perfect position to evaluate why it will make you happy. This almost always comes back to your values.

The desire to...

This month’s newsletter talked about celebrating how far we have come since the start of 2017. Taking the time to review and celebrate your milestones, no matter how small, is a great way of staying motivated and on track even when progress isn’t being made as fast as you’d like it to.

Looking back on where you were at the start of your journey is always a greater indication of success than where we find ourselves at any given time. It has been said that the true measure of success isn’t where we end up but how far we’ve come. Many agree that the journey and...

In my last blog I asked how focusing on your personal goals and aspirations had been going. I explained the importance of making sure goals are in alignment with your core values to ensure greater success.

No matter what they are, incorporating small changes into your day to day life can be a challenge. Not least because we are creatures of habit and habits can be difficult to break. Rather than trying to change or incorporate everything at once, the best way to make effective long lasting changes is to begin to introduce small changes one by one.

Let’s use an example of a change...

In this month’s newsletter we talked about new beginnings for us and our families at the start of the new academic year.  I explained the importance of taking time to focus on those goals and aspirations that may have been kept on a back burner for some time. Where January has traditionally been the month for fresh starts, many of the experts agree that September can be an equally good time to start over.

A week or so into the new school term, have you had any success with making time to focus on what you want? It’s ok if you haven’t, you may be waiting for things to...
