World Mental Health Day was yesterday. I normally don’t pay a vast amount of attention to these ‘special’ days, as I feel that you should be mindful of all types of things happening within the world regardless of the one day designated for something imparticular. Since yesterday my view on this has now changed. I and another went to visit a health clinic specialising in osteopathy. It turned out to be a really interesting discussion and I can only hope that working with this client will make me more knowledgeable about osteopathy and general health. These Osteopaths target specific parts of your body to You have to give real credit to the people that smile for no given reason. Those that laugh intensively regardless of people that fail to see the joy in life. The ones that don’t let you ruin their vibe regardless of what kind of energy they pick up from you.  These people are the definition of the strong ones that will keep going no matter what. You might see someone smile and think everything is ok with them but inside they are slowly falling apart. Addictions. Stress. Anxiety. Panic. Depression. Those are just naming a few! We hide behind so much in order to keep going in life.

I’ve got a friend that has recently done his back in! I didn’t realise the severity of this until he explained the situation in further detail. He’s a little sarcastic at times- which I admire lol. When he was telling me he was in the hospital I didn’t believe him until he mentioned it a second time. He’s a workaholic. A person that just wants to achieve whatever he can. I don’t know the ins and outs of his life, but I know that given he likes to go above and beyond there may be a possibility that his health gets shoved to the end of the line sometimes. We’re all guilty of this sometimes.

Now.. I will let you in on a secret! I have a slight phobia of cupboards, ones that haven’t been used in some time. Gradually I am overcoming this as I fail to make it become an issue where I don’t step near one again lol. I also tend to get slightly hesitant before going to meetings. I begin to self-doubt myself. It takes copious amounts of self-talk to remind myself that I do know what I’m talking about and I am experienced in what I specialise in. I believe that we all tend to self-doubt ourselves at times. When this happens you need to think about why you started and what your mission is on this earth. Everything has the potential to achieve whatever they want to regardless of class, religion, background, experiences etc. The only thing I will say is that you MUST take care of your health. This is something I’m working towards also. I need to become the best version of myself physically, mentally and emotionally. It’s important that we steer towards the best individuals we can be.  It’s ok to NOT be ok. It’s fine if you have your off days. Try your hardest to get back up again and if you cant, seek help in order to get back up. This world is yours so take it ❤

I’m sorry in advance to generalise here but I just want it to be known that EVERYONE has some form of mental health issue that they do not admit. They have a fear of admitting this due to the stigma placed on mental health through society. If I have a cold im quick to tell my closest ones that I don’t feel so great. If I’ve got a problem with my arms and legs I will make it known to you. So why.. If you have a problem with something internal that your battling should you seize up in shame and embarrassment. Your only human. You’re in a world based on a mixture. A mixture of lies. Crime. Love. Disaster. Jealousy and malicious people. If you think that would have no impact on the way you think and feel then your not thinking right.

I’m far from a therapist! However, I work on a regular basis with people that have disabilities or mental health issues. This makes them no less of a person. Actually, I admire their honesty and love them for the individuals they are. My aim for 2019 is to target more charities that specialise in mental health issues and disabilities and do some charitable work with them as this is something I am passionate about.

Thanks for reading!

How I went from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset within a year

Screen Shot 2017-11-28 at 21.06.37

Last week I attended a business event, was basically all about Online Marketing, providing others with the main fundamentals of having a successful online business. The ability to work anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection and a decent Laptop. I’m already doing this anyway, but I feel its always sensible to attend these kinds of meetups and gain more knowledge. I really enjoyed the event actually. Was great in order for me to connect with others. Connecting with those that are likeminded is never a bad thing. There’s always someone I can learn from, and someone that can tell me something that I am not aware of.

Screen Shot 2017-11-28 at 21.03.20


I  now realise you can never obtain enough knowledge. This may be through the internet, books, people, social media, and the list goes on. When I look back at the old version of me, I realise that I limited myself, I limited myself to thinking I needed to work for others in order to be a success. I doubted the fact they I could do something independently. This is no longer the case- I have gradually shifted into a growth mindset. I used to always consider starting a business, and then just stop as I felt it wasn’t good enough, or was concerned about what others thought of this. Now, putting it nicely I couldn’t give a toss. I feel like I’m in such a good place doing something that I want to. Even if it means sleeping later than I normally would, or missing the occasional social gathering.  Let me tell you this.. I try things and sometimes I fall completely flat on my face, but I have never made that have an impact on me pursuing it again. I have never made someone stop me from doing what I wanted to do neither.

So the question you are probably thinking is ‘Do you have a job alongside your business?’

In response to the question, yes I do. I am still needing security to pay my bills and the occasional treat. Also, in order to invest in anything for the business, it requires money, so I always have to make sure I’m afloat. But I will say this, I feel so positive pursuing something that I’m genuinely passionate about. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have my down days, and I still feel like sometimes I want to give up. I know where I want to head, and I’m fully aware of my goals. I used to feel quite embarrassed when people asked me what I wanted to be when I was older because, to be honest, I didn’t have a clue really. I knew I always loved to teach others but was never 100% sure if I wanted to become a teacher long term for numerous reasons.

I always remember my ex-partner telling me he wanted to become a wrestler, and I laughed. Now, looking back.. who the hell am I to laugh at someone else’s dreams?  We can be whatever we want to be, it may take patience and commitment but we can all get there. As long as your passionate about something why can’t you go grab it?  Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not good enough to do something, and if they do, challenge them. Challenge them so hard, and get your reward. Even if you don’t have a certain skill you require, go and get it and stop limiting all the things that you can achieve, and all the things waiting for you.

I will continue to stand on my two feet, and do what I feel passionate about. I will continue to learn and seek new things via meeting new people. I continue to push to remain a social creature and understand the needs of others.

Manifesting your desires..

Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 19.03.59


Today I happened to be browsing through Facebook when I noticed that a live video was about to take place. I decided to watch as I though maybe this one was intended for me. It was literally just starting when I was scrolling past it! I feel it’s always good to support someone when they are doing live videos- it takes a huge amount of courage to decide to get out there and expose yourself to the world, regardless of what opinions another may have about your views.

So the video was about ‘living your highest potential in love’. This isn’t something on the forefront for me right now, so I politely bypassed this. Instead I chose to apply the discussion to manifestation for my goals. I believe that we will all manifest whatever we create inside ourselves, because you’re fueling yourself to a particular direction. It’s kind of like a car really, when the petrol is running low you may realise that the performance of the vehicle is not the same as it is on a full tank. When you add in a decent amount of petrol ( more money) it feels like you’ve given the car a shot of energy; you feel more comfortable whilst driving the car.

In order to manifest positive things in life I feel it is all about remaining consistent. I’m a little bit of a hypocrite lol, as I have tried sooooo many diets and failed to remain consistent in order to shift the pounds. But to be completely honest, I do not feel too bad about it, because I know that I’m trying and above all, I will eventually get there. If you provide yourself with positive energy on a daily basis, this will draw more positive people to you, as they are vibrating with your frequency. We are all connected in some way… Do you ever get nervous about meeting up with an old-time friend? Yes, I do.. I always find this, but then the time comes I feel like I only departed from them a few days ago. Obviously I’m referring to particular people In my head, we are not meant to stay connected to everybody. Some people come into your life to learn you something, make you stronger, and other various reasons.

Screen Shot 2017-11-08 at 22.28.58

We are all drawn to each other to come back to initial wholeness. I think this is why when we meet someone in real life, you may feel like you’ve met them before. Feels rather magical- and you have no doubts regarding the person and the type of energy that they hold.

How powerful can you feel without having a physical experience? The answer to this, is you can feel a whole lot powerful than the physical experience itself. This is why I’m now understanding that if you vision where you want to be eventually it will happen. It’s all about self belief.  Also, if you are emotionally experiencing something, then this means its real. There is nothing stronger than the feelings from within.

Exposing a few myths about email subject lines

Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 18.16.43

Its been well over three months since we’ve done a blog, been mad busy with new and exciting projects that we will soon be sharing with you. As we aren’t blogging as frequently as we used to, we want to make sure that we are hitting the right topics especially for startup businesses. Please DM us regarding any topics you would like us to focus on when blogging (saves you research time). Some new clients that have recently came on board with us have been asking about emails, wanting to know about the subject lines. I can understand why it would be somewhat intriguing to know what subject to use when sending across an email to a potential client of yours. After all, the subject is the first thing that the prospect will read before opening the email. If it is not something interesting or straight to the point, then it is highly likely you will get spammed.

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 10.55.34

There a few common myths regarding subject lines and I wanted to squash them for you, take a read below..

Myth 1: Don’t use CAPITALS in subject lines

This stems from the idea that using capitals is like shouting, and its rude to shout. In addition it’s also thought that capitals are much harder to read.

Using capital letters does help subject lines to stand out over those that are not capitalised. Around once a month Miss Selfridge uses a subject line that begins “PETITES EXCLUSIVE”.

The rest of the subject line depends on their offers that month. The regular use of capitalisation enables your readers to recognise and expect your emails.

Myth 2: Personalisation makes emails look like spam 

No! not necessarily ‘she says in a deep voice with scary looking eyes’.  There is nothing wrong with personalising your emails, if everyone wrote the same, dressed the same and spoke the same this world would be so boring… Whats wrong with originality nowadays. There may be times when your email doesn’t always work with particular readers (and you might just get spammed). You have to remember I loathe Marmite, but Pauline down the road from me absolutely lurves it! Not everyone will like the same things, and it’s just trial and error sometimes so we can know what works.


Myth 3: Don’t use spam trigger words like “Free” in the subject line

The received wisdom is that the word “free” gets you moved swiftly to the trash can. Many years ago there was actually some truth in this, as at that time email was largely filtered based on content.  Now the most filtering factor is reputation, lack of  positive reputation usually results in a trash can movement.

So I advise you to go ahead and use your trigger words as you wish. Keep an eye on the inbox placement, and of course if it isn’t working maybe change things around slightly.

Myth 4: Don’t be too pushy

Hmmm… well do as you please I would advise. I feel that as there is now so much competition being pushy is somewhat attractive to the reader. It makes them understand that you would like their custom and you are willing to do what it takes to get their attention. Speaking from experience, I like the pushy ones. I’ve received phone calls with people trying to sell me things .. as we all do, and I tell them to call back at a different time. I do this as I genuinely am interested, and I never hear from them again.

I say you should find the best strategy for you, and do as you please. There are too many rules put in place. Try out different things and get your strategies in place. I advise that you take note of the things that work and don’t work, so you know for the future.


Good luck, and let us know how you get on..

Marketing Strategies: The Work In The Background


Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 10.56.45Its been a little while since we’ve done a blog again. Things have been slightly chaotic lately, as we have been working in the background on some exciting new developments that we will certainly share with you shortly. Plus not only that! Some exciting family news too, at the weekend me and my family took my younger sister to the Airport to say adios for 9 weeks! Oh em gee.. 9 weeks my younger sister will be in New York carrying out Camp America– I can imagine the experience will be phenomenal. I always encourage myself and others to travel; see the world for what it is. Each time a person travels I feel you are peeling a layer of experience and learning new things.. wow, just wow. From the image of Times Square, you can just see how many people there are, lots of connections to be made here! New York is the place where amazing things happen ❤

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 10.51.49.png

Anyway… What I want to discuss with you this morning is about implementing new marketing strategies amongst your clients social media platforms. I feel this is something that needs to be touched on, as it can help both clients and also new Marketing Consultants gain an understanding of the impact of marketing strategies. Now, Marketing Consultants can probably already relate to me instantly when I mention strategies. It takes lots of planning, samples, thinking, experiments, and thought-provoking ideas. When you develop your strategies you are always taking a slight risk. As you are trying to work out what works for your audience.

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 10.55.34.pngYou are playing with the minds of your audience to find out what makes them tick! There is nothing wrong with this, providing you are doing it with good intentions (and I can assure you that mine are). I always remember with my very first client, I spent near enough 1 week designing posts individually, as I was so nervous that it was going to be a massive FLOP! However, it proved me wrong as the audience responded ever so well with the strategies that I implemented and there was lots of community engagement also, such a success.

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 11.02.33.png

Its great having new clients, however, I feel its important for all clients to have background knowledge about the issues that Marketing Consultants face in the first instance. I always mention to new clients that you should never judge your contractor based on the first two weeks of their work performance. The first two weeks is kind of like a mini test. A test to recognise the response you receive to your posts, and see if its working the right way. You need to wait at least one month before your judge the social media management that you are getting. This is why many Marketing Consultants have a minimum contract of 3 months with their clients. It’s not so they can have a regular income, it’s so you can see the growth in the social media and be proud of how far you have come.

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 11.03.32.pngI have found that some companies like to change the people who manage their social media on a regular basis. You may think this is benefiting you, and you are saving money but long-term this is not the case. You do not save money in this instance, you actually lose it. Yes! I am correct in what I am saying, you lose money, because the next person that is taking over your social media will be starting again trying to find the best strategies for the business. Your current audience may ‘reject’ this and you may be unfollowed. So this is why you should really research what Marketing Consultant you decide to go with, and have an intention to stay with them long-term with a hope of increasing your revenue and having long-standing audiences that are waiting for your daily posts.
