How Getting Clear On What You ‘Really’ Want & More Importantly ‘Why’ You Want It Is The Key To Making It Happen In 2018

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

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.

Getting Your 2018 Off To The Right Start

Monday, January 8th, 2018

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 fit or at least well on your way back to health and ready to embrace all that 2018 has to offer!

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 years the biggest testimony to us reaching this milestone is you! We couldn’t have done it without your support, engagement or feedback over the past nine years.
