I’m in the business of people!

My business is created purely to help people to succeed.  I say to my team ‘To be good, you have to want success for others.  It’s all about helping others.’

To be a good leader, you must invest in your team by spending time with them, and be willing to do what it takes to help them go the extra mile. I like to spend my time coaching and creating better businesses, helping others to be a success.

If you’d love to run your own business but feel a bit unsure, I can help you.  Even if you’re confident about running a business then it’s always better to have some support, a person to inspire and motivate you.  I’ve been coaching people to succeed for over 15 years, and I’ve been in business myself for over 25 years! Oh! Wow! How time flies!

If you don’t know what business to start then I can help you.  We can look at your skills and talents, likes and dislikes, digging deep to discover your true ambition and potential.

If you just want to get a business and earn some money as soon as possible then I have a business in a box! This makes starting up your own business so easy! Everything is done for you – the products, the brochures, the website, back office support, and a ready made team.  You can build your business straight away, with no restrictions on earnings, it’s entirely up to you.

The start up fees are so small, it’s like doing your weekly shop or going for a meal – instead you’ll have a lifelong business all set up and ready to go with everything you need to start in business. There’s no costly franchise fees, no boss to hassle you, and you choose your own hours of work. You can build this business to be able to work from anywhere, and the success and rewards are all yours! All the training is provided and you get support from me and our team of proven business experts.

You don’t only get paid when you work. Our model creates a residual income.  You can take time off –  take a holiday! Spend time with your children. And you still get paid – No questions asked! How many employers do that?

How much better and easier would life be, if you had all the ‘perks’, but no need for an employer?

If that wasn’t enough – There’s a car incentive plan. There’s an Annual bonus scheme. There are 5 star Holidays to be won! Yet remember –  you are your own boss. It really is the best of all worlds! Are you as excited as we are?

People from all walks of life can be successful; there is no stereotype for success, we can help you to achieve.  I’ve had the privilege of working with people such as a Medical Doctor; Law Student; Sports Student; Physio therapist; Human Resources Manager; Health Visitor; Estate Agent; Business Owner; and Management Consultant; as well as stay-at home–Mums and Dads, and child minders. There are so many varieties of professional backgrounds on our team.

What these entrepreneurs have all got in common is the desire to be free from their ‘lives of desperation’, away from the 9 to 5 of employment, they wanted to build their own business and they are willing to try something new.

Thumbs up for #businessmums 

It’s the school holidays this week and I’m so grateful to have this precious time off with my littlest before she grows up.

It’s only the second day of the holidays and we have already been for nature walks, visited the park (twice), explored new towns and villages, enjoyed hot chocolate, ran up a big hill together, and done a yoga work out!  

Our conversations have been vibrant and so much fun and we’re loving the holidays. 

I feel no guilt that I’m not working, particularly as I had two online orders go through this morning at 3am, without doing anything! 

I know we will soon be back to the crazy world of juggling #work #family #fitness #taxiduties #dogwalkies and #equineduties but just for this week it is purely about #familytime

Thumbs up for Mum’s who juggle it all! 

Sharing the love and wishing you a Happy Halloween xx

Who would have thought that the search to find a new moisturiser would lead to a whole new business!

For many months I’ve been looking for new products to sell alongside my consultancy work, as I want to build a better future by reducing the daily grind of balancing work, clients needs and my family duties,  and reduce my workload.  I couldn’t find anything that would reduce my workload or that fitted with my passion for helping people.  I have to stay true to my ethics and passion.

At the same time, I was hunting for a new moisturiser, as my current one just wasn’t good enough any more.  I suppose I have to also admit that I’m no longer a spring chicken, which means my skin is changing….so I needed change before everything started drooping!

I’m also not happy with the way certain brands are still using animal testing on their products. I cannot agree with that!  This was another reason for the change.  I was looking for a company with natural products, that do not test on animals.

I’m frequently telling friends and family about the benefits of herbal remedies, so when my friend told me about Forever Living and their Aloe Vera products, not tested on animals and entirely organic, I needed to know more.

My friend gave me a basket of health and well being products to try.  I’ve never been a girly, girl type, but I loved the handwash, my sore hands were instantly smoothed by the lotion, I was energised by the milkshakes, and the Aloe drinks helped me power through the day.

I looked into the company providing the products, aware that my ethics are so important to me.  The company have been around for nearly 40 years, they give a 60 day money back guarantee.  Their Aloe Vera is all organically grown on their own organic plantations, and they do not test on animals.  They’re a cash rich company so I know they are going to be around for years to come.

I’ve emptied my house of all the different products that I used before and replaced with my Forever Living products, I love them!

I love the products so much I wanted to join the team, I want to spread health and well being among families throughout the world, and create prosperous futures for my family and others.  This company is so true to my ethics that I had to be part of it!  Plus the incentives are fantastic! A new car, holidays, high quality training, a share of the profits…..wow! Amazing!

I’m now recruiting my team and I’m coaching people to build their own successful businesses. It’s fantastic that I’ve found a company that enables me to build a business and coach others to be successful in their businesses too! I’d love to introduce you to a healthy, wealthy world of Forever Living.

 

 

 

 

What horses have taught me about being a good leader!

I’ve been horse mad since a very early age, and I was finally allowed riding lessons at 8 years old.   The first few sessions were a bit shaky, with a few nose dives as I fell off on a couple of occasions, but I was determined this was my sport. Although I was not allowed my own horse until I was 15, I made maximum use of everyone else’s, and was soon competing.

At the time I was totally unaware of the skills I was developing and it’s only now, 30+ years later that I appreciate what horses have taught me about being a good leader.  When I first started in a leadership role it never occurred to me that being around horses could impacted on my career.  More recently my new horse has reminded me about being a good leader.  Here are some examples;

Preparation and Planning:

There’s a lot of work involved in caring for horses, and this can be less or more according to the type of breed.  For example a slinky thoroughbred needs more care than a robust cob type due to their different genetics and origins of the breed.  I’ve benefitted from the company of cob’s, thoroughbred’s and anything in between, over the past 36 years.

Planning all the necessary requirements of a horse into my already hectic day is an absolute must.  My children and my business activities also have to take priority, which means everything has to be planned and organised to perfection.  My horse would not forgive me if I failed to make time for the gallops or arrived late with her tea, and my family are not too great when hungry either!

The planning process includes everyone who needs to be involved, whether I’m planning the business requirements, family activities or horse duties, those who play a part will be included in the planning. I make sure I am clear and concise in sharing my expectations and I always double check everyone is prepared and understands their part, no matter how small.

Understanding Personality:

In the equine world the difference between the personalities of mares, geldings and stallions is well documented, suggesting that geldings can be managed, mares will negotiate, and stallions rule the roost!  However the personality of the horse is actually not so stereotypical, for example some geldings refuse to accept the lower status, and mares often have days when negotiation is not on the agenda.

Training ex race horses and unbroken horses has helped me to understand that there is so much going on inside someone’s head that we do not know about.  With people, we expect to be told they are having a bad day (how many of us will admit that to the boss?), whereas horses will not vocalise their feelings, apart from a whinny when they’re happy to see you carrying breakfast. It’s up to us, as leaders, to feel the changes, learn empathy and to be observant, look out for the signs of what colleagues are feeling.

Understanding mood swings and how personality plays a big part in leading teams is vital to good leadership, with a good leader having the ability to read the atmosphere, pick up on body language and distract away from major issues.   Taking time to learn about personality and how different types of personalities interact with each other can make major improvements in productivity and reduce the fight for power (either in the board room or in the paddock!).

Build confidence to improve performance:

I’ve spent many hours repairing ex racehorses who have experienced hectic athletic careers, and suffer mentally as well as physically from their extreme workloads.  Working with a horse to build trust and confidence through a safe environment helps to reduce the damage and stress, providing a nurturing environment to make subtle changes and improve performance.

I set achievable targets and allow for mistakes to build confidence.  Allowing time for practice of new skills or new ways of working, within a non judgemental environment, will nurture and build confidence. The smallest change should be rewarded immediately, increasing the move towards improved performance.    Good leaders use rewards effectively and genuinely, encouraging small steps of change to improve performance.

My latest horse love project has almost reached a year with me, straight from the race  track to my caring, empathic family, where she has repaired, grown in confidence, and learnt a whole new world of work and fun.

I have been lucky to work with some fantastic teams, both in the equine world and in business. I’ve watched them out grow their confidence issues and go on to achieve great careers. I’ve come a long way from those days of my first few riding lessons, and although falling off is still part of the action, my leadership skills are on top form.

I aim to be learning from horses for a long time into the future.
