Letter to a Mum in Business who feels INVISIBLE

inspiration Feb 01, 2017

Dear Mum in business,

I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling invisible. I want to reassure you - you’re not alone! We all go through that visibility pain barrier at some point.

I believe that everyone, including you, deserves to feel seen, heard and understood, especially by the people they care about. Now, we might not have any worries at all when it comes to being seen and heard by our loved ones or meeting new people and making friends in our personal life, but it can be a totally different kettle of fish when it comes to business.

“Visibility” might not be a word you’ve often heard or used before you became a mum in business, but now suddenly you’re hearing it all the time. It seems that all the experts are talking about it and everyone on every street corner is offering a 7-step solution to make it happen for you.

I can imagine you might be feeling a bit anxious, overwhelmed or perhaps down right terrified. Are you wishing you could just keep...

What does it mean to be empowered?

Uncategorized Jul 14, 2016

Quite often I see the question being asked about what it really means to be empowered.

I asked my own community a while back, after all my whole personal mission and the Mpower brand is about empowering mums in business...it's so much more than just being 'powerful' or 'successful'!

I got a whole range of wonderful answers, so here's a selection of what came back from the Mpower community, and I'll also share my own personal definition of an empowered woman based on the empowered women I am blessed to be surrounded by...

For me 'empower' means I have the confidence and clarity to claim the life I choose to live on my own terms ~ Rayah

I feel empowered when I am in my "groove". Everything is free flowing and easy! What does this give me? Peace, happiness, makes my family and personal relationships easier. I feel more excited about my work and then I am able to offer a better quality service. Ultimately, I think it might be a feeling of achievement and the glow I get from that, in any...

How to Get Off The Stress and Overwhelm Rollercoaster!

Uncategorized Jun 27, 2016

(by Emily Thorpe, Mpower Facilitator, West Sussex)

Have you ever had one of those days?

You know the ones you would rather forget.

  • Those days when you’ve got so much to do there’s a feeling of panic and tightness in your chest.
  • Those days when it seems everything is conspiring against you and you’re looking for a hidden camera because you feel so set up.
  • Those days when you’re so behind the curve, it feels like you’re wading through treacle.
  • Or even those days when you promise yourself you’re not going to shout at the kids but by 7:35 you’ve broken your promise!

I've had plenty of those days in fact there were times I had more of those days than the amazing days.

Ah, the amazing days…

  • When I am so super organized that everything flows beautifully.
  • When I have time. Time to do the chores, time to ‘be’ with the kids, time to catch up with friends, time to do things I love too.
  • When I am so calm and relaxed, I can handle...

Get clear on your business vision as a Mumpreneur - H.E.R. L.I.F.E & Business

Uncategorized Feb 23, 2016

Starting a business and wondering where to start?

Before you jump in and order that first set of business card, order your domain name and get your new website, there is one REALLY important step that all successful business owners make sure they have covered first.

You see, all successful people have one thing in common: they have a Vision.

Not just any type of Vision though...

If you don't already have a clear, compelling and inspirational Vision, then STOP!  Whether you're a 'business startup' or a 'business builder', you'll want to take time out to get this essential step covered.

I often hear people say things like "I don't like to think that far in to the future", or "I just prefer to go with the flow", "I'm too busy with this years goals to think about anything bigger" and "what's the point of dreaming about the future, when I have no control over what might even happen tomorrow"...the fact is, if you don't have a clear and inspirational vision, the chances of your...
