If there’s one thing I want you to know, it is that you can choose the life you lead. You are in charge and you can craft it to bring you happiness. You just have to make the choice. Once you make that choice, you are suddenly more open and prepared to what you need to do to make that happen. One of the most crucial steps is adjusting your mindset. In this month’s newsletter we covered three important areas of mindset. This blog post will take each of these areas and share how you can begin shaping your mindset for success.

You finally have some clarity. But what happens when our busy day to day lives start butting in and taking over? There’s always someone demanding attention and something urgent that needs doing. Before you know it, that clarity on what you wanted to achieve has been forgotten, buried under the everyday tasks that threaten to sink you.

To start achieving those goals you have to maintain your clarity, reminding yourself of them constantly. Read on to discover our top ways for keeping clear on what you really want.

What It Is You Want

Just thinking about what you want is not enough. It...

It’s all very well being told that you need to get clarity around your passion and purpose, but what do you do if you’re feeling confused?

This blog post gives you three top tips on how you can clear away the confusion and find more clarity.

The trouble is that when you spend so much time looking after the needs of others, you often forget what it is that you really want. It can...

How often do you find yourself brushing off compliments? When someone tells you that you look great, you immediately point out the dark circles under your eyes. Or maybe someone asks you that dreaded question, “what are your strengths?” and the only response that comes to mind is that you don’t have any. You do, by the way, you just don’t recognise your self worth.

Self esteem and acknowledging your worth are important when you want the confidence to achieve more in life. It helps you to be ready for the action and decisions that you’ll need to take. Here we...

If you receive our newsletter, you may have noticed the empowering quote from Dale Carnegie: “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

I know that many mums will think that they need to build their confidence first, before they start taking action whereas the truth is the two come hand in hand. The more action you take, the more confidence you will gain. This blog post will show you three ways that you can start taking action even when your confidence is at...

Unless they’re in business themselves, it’s not uncommon for friends and family to come across as unsupportive. When you’ve had a hard day and are looking for some support, many of them will ask what appear to be insensitive questions such as, “when are you going back to work?” or “when are you going to get a proper job?”

They don’t mean to be hurtful, they just don’t get it. But as we saw in the last blog, there is a lot to gain from having a good support network around you. So what can you do to begin building that network?...

Did you spend years craving freedom and independence? There’s no doubt that starting your own business can give you that. But that doesn’t mean that you’re not going to need a support network.

Many mumpreneurs might realise this when times are tough. However, a support network can be invaluable when business is great too. Below are our top 7 reasons why you need to build a support network.

1. Something Goes Wrong

Business is not always smooth running, whatever anyone else might tell you. You might see businesses around you that always seem to be doing well but behind the...

Have you ever heard the phrase “face your fears”? A person’s response to that tends to go one of two ways: instantly thinking, “Absolutely no chance” and sprinting in the opposite direction, or, a “yes, I CAN do this”, gun-ho, let’s-go-flat-out-and-defeat-this-thing approach.

And yet neither of these responses will allow you to come through those fears unscathed. One ends with no action being taken and the other, risks making you so vulnerable and overwhelmed, that you end up with your fear growing rather than dissipating.

There’s a...

Fear. Unrecognised and unchallenged, it can cause all kinds of damage within your business and home life. In my newsletter I discussed five different types of fear that we may have. In this blog, I take it one step further and look at the different ways in which we can react to fear.

Whilst we’ve evolved into civilised humans, we did not start off this way and the evidence remains in our brains. When we feel fear, the more primitive part of our brain responds pushing us into one of the “fight, flight or freeze” responses.

These days, our fears have changed - it’s no...
