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.

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 of sad. That said it is worth noting that Blue Monday is indeed the week before it is predicted most of us fall off the wagon and give up on our New Year Resolutions. Maybe there is something to think about when it comes to staying on track or achieving our goals. I want to touch on the topic of goals or desired outcomes. Usually, we make a goal or commitment based on what we desire as an outcome that we believe we are able to control. These targets are also ones we (usually) think are achievable. If this is the case, why do so many of use not achieve our goals or resolutions? Well there are a few reasons. The first being a lack of clarity on what we really desire.

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.

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 enjoying yourself all throughout the next year too, the celebration doesn’t have to end in January. You can move into the New Year with stride, keep the momentum going and have another year filled with success.


September; The New January: New Year, Fresh Start!

Monday, September 11th, 2017

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 settle with the children until you make some plans towards making 2017 your best year to date.
