Standing on stage after winning the 2017-2018 Emerging Coach of the Year Award at the Beautiful You Coaching Academy's Awards celebration was surreal. The last 18 months building my business one-on-one with clients and through my blogs, events and speaking roles has taught me a number of really important lessons. Many of them in doing business more gently than I have in the hustle of my previous and academic working life. I share some of those lessons with tips for coaches at the beginning of their journey.

This blog shares five tips for how to balance vision for your future life with an appreciation of the abundance in your life right now.

I've spoken about morning rituals before, but I can't stress enough how a well thought out ritual - whether it be five minutes or an hour - can impact the rest of your morning, or indeed, the rest of your day!
This video talks about how a morning ritual can be transformative and set the scene for a positive day moving forward and some of the things you might consider for your own morning rituals.
What on earth would a rest and renewal coach bring to my life?
We have personal trainers and group trainers for our fitness and mental wellbeing (hopefully both come with physical exercise) but did you know a coach can also have your back emotionally and spiritually, as well as physically and emotionally?
Some reflections from me about how having a coach to help you feel renewed by your life, and why comparisons to sporting coaches can be really helpful.
Want to kick off 2017 feeling full of energy - not just physically, but emotionally, spiritually and mentally? Then you need to connect with me for your 90 minutes 'awakening' session - a brand new offering where we work on your 'intentions' for 2017 (not 'goals') based on how you want to feel every day. This is not your average goal setting session and if you've ever been put off by 'goal setting' then this is definitely for you! For less than $100 AND two weeks email follow up and support from me, this is absolutely not a session to miss. You'll leave with inspiration, actions and momentum to live 2017 fully engaged and full of energy.

But one of the biggest lessons I've learnt over the last few years, has helped me in all the years that I can remember in my life - is that purposeful silence has had a profound affect on my life. Even as a Type A extrovert. Listen in for why purposeful and conscious periods of silence are so good for us.
I often found myself saying about my two year old - he's just so FRANTIC! He never slows down.
He'd race around constantly, and I'd say he was 'full of energy' and that it would be a 'blessing as an adult just harder to manage as a child' and similar phrases to help explain why I was exhausted and frazzled and he was always on the go.
But after some amazing help from a family specialist, we felt confident to cut out a lot of the chit chat. Here are six reasons why introducing quiet parenting into your household and your family will help you and your kids.
