Irritating Obstacles or Divine Intervention?

Irritating Obstacles or Divine Intervention?

When you hit roadblocks, do you see them as irritating obstacles you have to plough through, or do you see them as divine interventions whispering that something’s not quite right? I’ve been fascinated by this for a while and haven’t come up with a definitive answer...

WTF – Where did the time go

WTF – Where did the time go

Do you beat yourself up for all the things you’re not getting done? Or do you look back and celebrate all that you have accomplished? When I got up the other morning I thought “great, I’ve got an hour” – I’ll do some journaling. By the time I sat down, laptop open,...

Writing a Sales Page? Follow this 9 Step Framework

Writing a Sales Page? Follow this 9 Step Framework

I woke up this morning thinking about copywriting – as you do! Reviewing copy is something I regularly do for clients - whether it’s a sales page, an email, a social media post or feedback on a new programme. It’s something that many of my clients find very valuable. ...

Marketing Strategies you are Excited to Implement

Marketing Strategies you are Excited to Implement

I was out shopping recently buying some last-minute bits and pieces for our holiday. And I noticed a new shop filled with pretty dresses and summer clothes – perfect for sunny Corfu.  Although I didn’t have much time, I decided to quickly try them on. Three dresses...

The Gift of Space

The Gift of Space

A few years ago I wrote a series of blog posts that focussed on gifts.  It was during the Christmas period so was very apt.  I wrote about: The Gift of Appreciation The Gift of Abundance The Gift of Kindness The Gift of Judgement There were twelve gifts in total. But...

You only ever have to take the next step

You only ever have to take the next step

It was a beautiful day, the sun sparkled over Dover harbour and there was a hubbub of activity as swimmers prepared for training.  Camaraderie and connection were the flavour of the day as  volunteers kept track of all swimmers ensuring they could raise an alarm if...

Letting go of Sabotaging Patterns

Letting go of Sabotaging Patterns

It’s been a while since I’ve been up before everyone and sat with a cup of tea and my laptop writing. Indeed, I got out of the habit after I finished writing Sacred Selling.  I started waking later, then we got two kittens who were awake wanting to play as soon as I...

Psychological Price Points

Psychological Price Points

It can be a bit of a minefield when it comes to pricing. What should I charge, what will people pay?  Can I really charge that? I have to admit that whenever I’m pricing anything I tend to feel into it.  Does it feel good to me?  How does it sound when I say it?  I...

Turning objections into reasons to buy

Turning objections into reasons to buy

Something I’ve been saying to clients a lot over the past few months is “You can spin anything”. Not in a negative, trying to twist things way, but in a positive way that supports clients. It often comes up when I’m helping clients create their dream programme. A...

Six Words that will Double your Sales

Six Words that will Double your Sales

There’s something magical about someone saying yes to something that will change their life.  I’ve done thousands of calls over the years, yet I still get this deep feeling of love and connection whenever I hear that “yes”. Last week I was blessed to get 3 “yeses” in...

8 Money-Saving Tips

8 Money-Saving Tips

3 years ago we embarked on a money-saving adventure which we treated as a game calling it "Austerity Measures" . It totally shifted my relationship to money, taking me from "never enough" to abundance - within 3 months. I talk about the journey in Sacred Selling....

The Importance of Grounding Practices

The Importance of Grounding Practices

It's March 1st.  St David’s Day.  First day of meteorological spring.  I love this time of year.  As the earth warms up and the spring flowers burst forth.  There’s nothing more cheering than seeing swathes of daffodils everywhere you go.  And I love how each day we...

Guiding Light

Guiding Light

As I've been talking to people about their businesses this week, what has been coming through is what works - and what doesn't.   Offering a certain programme and generating few (if any) sales. Testing out new marketing campaigns and it not really going as...

Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt

I have always loved treasure hunts...    There's something really magical and playful about solving clues and then running to find the next piece of treasure.  I don't know if it's the child in me or the incurable romantic but there's something about treasure...

Alchemize connection into cash

Alchemize connection into cash

When it comes to selling, one of the things you need to focus on is having a compelling offer.    What is it you are selling?  How badly do people want it?  Are you presenting it in a way that’s compelling to them?  Does the energy of your offering and your...

New Year Blessings

New Year Blessings

Happy New Year!  May your 2022 be filled with magic, abundance and oodles of fun. I was about to say 2021 was a strange year, until I asked myself – was it?  Was it really?  Did I personally find it strange or was I simply stating what I believed to be an...

Heed the whispers of your heart…

Heed the whispers of your heart…

Six Figures is considered by some, ‘the Holy Grail’ of business success.  That first tangible milestone that says “you’ve made it”. When I first hit six figures, I was so excited.  I’d done it!  I was a success story; people were inspired and wanted to follow in my...

And breathe…

And breathe…

Does it feel like life is going at a gazillion miles an hour right now?  Like you are being bombarded from every angle, squeezed and squished in every direction? Even though I feel as though I’ve been living in a bubble; avoiding news and not spending hours on social...

Why empaths are great at selling

Why empaths are great at selling

I’ve been reflecting on what makes someone great at selling and marketing a lot recently.  I would often suggest things to clients and peers and they’d say “ooh that’s a great idea”. And if I think of all the campaigns I’ve implemented – some have been a great success...

What Garden Birds Taught Me About Business

What Garden Birds Taught Me About Business

I’m sat watching the birds in the garden, planning to journal, but instead was inspired to write a blog post.  It feels like I haven’t written one in forever as I’ve been focussing on editing my book. However, watching the birds this morning reminded me of something I...

5 Keys to Following Your Desires

5 Keys to Following Your Desires

I finished writing the first draft of my book: Sacred Selling and submitted it to my publisher for feedback. I thought the structure was ok and there were parts that were really good but I thought it needed a LOT of work to get it into shape for publishing.  So I was...

A Sacred Ceremony to Close 2020

A Sacred Ceremony to Close 2020

It’s been such a stunning day in Shropshire to mark the end of 2020.  I’ve just returned from a lovely walk with the sun warming my back, despite the temperature being 1 or 2 degrees above freezing and the ground still hard from this morning’s frost – a big...

Connection Cures

Connection Cures

As the Christmas cards start arriving many of them say “here’s hoping to a better 2021”. I am super excited about 2021 – partly because I’m excited about what I’ve got cooking up, and partly because I feel a powerful energy that 2021 will bring. However interestingly...

I’m a Published Writer

I’m a Published Writer

I'm a published writer! How exciting is that! Just over a year ago I was asked by the lovely Julia Barnickle to contribute to a selection of essays on the subject:   What if Life were meant to be Easy?   I jumped at the chance because: a) It was a juicy...

Transformation in the subtle, in the little things, in the everyday.

Transformation in the subtle, in the little things, in the everyday.

This morning I was asked what I’d miss about my home if we were to leave. My immediate response was “I’ve never really thought about it because until I’m in that situation I don’t know how I’d be - so there’s no point in thinking about something that’s not relevant”....

Navigating Turbulent Times

Navigating Turbulent Times

It’s been a pretty big week on the world scene – many countries are going into a second lockdown, and a US election that is impacting us all. Emotions are high as we navigate these uncertain times. So, what can we do to take care of ourselves and support others in the...

Sabotaging Patterns in the areas of Money, Marketing & Selling

Sabotaging Patterns in the areas of Money, Marketing & Selling

Sabotaging patterns play a huge role in our business results.  For example:   Going for gold, everything seems to be going well – and then suddenly you’re faced with a set-back. Desperately needing to expand your team but being constantly let down whenever you...

A Journey to Transforming Sales

A Journey to Transforming Sales

I love firsts. Maybe it was because I was the first grand-child on my Dad's side. Or maybe it's because I'm an explorer and my first experience of anything is always the most exciting. Of course in truth it doesn't matter what the reason is - the fact that I love...

Slamming on the brakes – and how I broke free

Slamming on the brakes – and how I broke free

Many years ago, I used to give myself a hard time for not following through on implementing systems which could be run on autopilot.  It was the era of creating passive income and the “lap-top lifestyle” was the in thing:  make money while you sleep, or whilst sitting...

An Exploration of Committment

An Exploration of Committment

One of the things I’ve noticed is that after I’ve done a challenge – particularly if it’s one where I’ve had the support of a group – once the challenge is over I do less than I did before. It’s like the energy it took to complete the challenge was so intense my body...

Launch Insights – A Game Changer

Launch Insights – A Game Changer

I’ve launched a lot of programmes during my 15 years of business - some have been exciting and fun – some have been stressful and disappointing. However launching the Sacred Selling System has been an entirely different experience from previous launches – everything...

Sacred Marketing

Sacred Marketing

Marketing is something many spiritual entrepreneurs dislike.  I'm guessing you would much rather spend your time serving clients than trying to find them?  Indeed, you'd probably love a fairy godmother to come along and do all that icky marketing for you. However,...

Life is Magical When We Simply Live it

Life is Magical When We Simply Live it

My favourite hour of the day is early morning, before the rest of the house awakens, sitting beside our French doors looking out into the garden as the sun rises, with a pot of tea. There’s something sacred about tea brewed in a pot and drunk from a beautiful cup. I...

How to experience freedom and ease with money

When you think of freedom and ease with money do you imagine: never having to worry whether you have enough to pay your bills having enough money to buy all those little extras Consistently earning enough to live the lifestyle you desire having a profitable business...

We were made for these times

We were made for these times

What if these aren’t challenging times – that’s merely our perception? What if people aren’t really panicking – that that too is just our perception? What if there is no fear – just the illusion of it? If we are told something over and over we learn to believe it....

Beauty in Death

Beauty in Death

It’s such a beautiful day– the sun is shining and this morning there was a crisp frost on the ground, yet it didn’t feel cold in the way it does in winter.  Beautiful spring – my favourite time of year.  I feel very blessed that I live in the countryside and have...

What will make your marketing flow

What will make your marketing flow

Many years ago I gave away a free report called “How to attract new clients in 7 easy steps”.  The first three steps were: Step one:  Get clear on who you are targeting Step two:  Understand what they really want Step three:  Give them what they want All the marketing...

Break Free from Sacred Myths Part Two

Break Free from Sacred Myths Part Two

As we grow up we take on board the beliefs of those around us.  Many things we believe to be true are lies and illusions.   They play out in business in the form of repeating patterns and stop us from experiencing the success and fulfilment we crave. There are five...

A Personal Musing

A Personal Musing

Where to start? Already I can feel myself going into struggle – at trying to find the “right” way to language how I feel. To write and share the swirl of emotions going around and around: sadness, grief, anger, frustration, peace, love and many more I can’t name. And...

Break Free from Sacred Myths and Soar to Freedom

Break Free from Sacred Myths and Soar to Freedom

As we grow up we take on board the beliefs of those around us.  Many things we believe to be true are actually lies and illusions.   They then play out in business in a massive way and stop us from experiencing the success and fulfilment we crave. There are five main...

Sacred Foundations:  How to withstand business threats

Sacred Foundations: How to withstand business threats

When it comes to Sacred Foundations I always think of a majestic oak tree.  For me it symbolises strength, wisdom and beauty.  I love that the roots of an oak tree can spread up to 3 to 7 times the diameter of the tree’s crown. If you google the spiritual significance...

The Importance of Testing

The Importance of Testing

When it comes to creativity I really don’t recommend writing a blog post at 9pm at night (unless of course you’re a night owl and super productive at this time.) However I do recommend you offer people what they want – and this was the topic of one of my posts last...

Choosing Faith over Fear

Choosing Faith over Fear

I am on day 15 of a 30 day blogging.  The mid-way point.  And today I didn’t know what to write about.  It’s a Sunday – a day I don’t normally work which means whilst I have lots of business topics I could talk about – I want to leave those for another day. And of...

Dance to the rhythm of your own drum

Dance to the rhythm of your own drum

Before signing up to any training programme we often ask ourselves “will it work?” Know that feeling? For me it’s a very familiar one. In the past every decision I made was through that lens – will this thing I want to do bring me closer to where I want to go? These...

The Answer to all “How do I?” Questions

The Answer to all “How do I?” Questions

A few weeks ago I spent some time with a dear friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for several years.  We talked about so much and inevitably talked about business. There was one particular thing she said that really resonated and I saw how it applied to everything in...

5 Keys to sharing your message leading to dream clients

5 Keys to sharing your message leading to dream clients

When it comes to selling - Sacred Selling or otherwise, we can never really know whether something is going to be a hit until we start to promote it.  We can do all the market research we want and ask lots of people for their opinion but unless they’re in the market...
