Small business therapy!

 - by dawn

Have you spent too many years doing what you didn’t want to do, for people you didn’t really like?  If it’s a yes, then you are in the right place!

I want to help women realise their ambition of starting their own small business.

I’m a certain age – an age when my life is changing in ways I couldn’t imagine even a few years ago.  I have three children and at the time of writing this, two of them are on their own adventures at Uni, with one still at home and taking exams this year, so they can fly off too.

If you are a mum too, you will not have prepared for your children leaving home, you can’t as you are too focused on doing your mum stuff.  It’s all consuming and exhausting and rewarding in equal measure (or actually unequal measure most of the time).  Then it all changes and where are you?  Who are you?  What’s your role in life now?

Well for me personally, through some very difficult times that are likely to hit us all at some point (serious illness, stress, anxiety, loss and especially empty nest syndrome), my business has been my therapy.  I’ve pushed myself to do things I never thought I would!  It has been scary at times, but so rewarding.   I’ve had a focus, a purpose and it’s help build my confidence and find out about me.  I’ve helped others start their own businesses too, and I’ve seen them experience the same good things that I have enjoyed.

I attended the launch party of someone I’d help start their own chocolate workshop business, and on arrival I saw the husband whisper something in the ear of the lady I’d supported.  He came straight over to me and kissed me, thanking me for giving me his wife back!  She had been so unhappy, doing a job she disliked and trying to juggle life with their small children.  I was truly choked – and so delighted for them both, she continues to go from strength to strength with her business too.  This is what doing your own thing can mean though – freedom, flexibility and the chance to follow a dream and truly flourish.

I’m launching a new programme to help people like you.  It will contain all the practical steps you need to complete to get started (delivered in modules) but most importantly support, encouragement and focus.  I will believe in you, be your champion, and help you avoid overwhelm and encourage you to keep going.  I’ve been in business for 10 years now and helped many others along the way.  I’ve love to to help you too.

Whether you have an idea for a business already and need help to get going, or whether you need to explore ideas for your business that suit your particular talents, I’d love to help you get started!
