Vital Vision Compass - 10 04 17 3 (2)

UPDATE & Solution Warning!! For 10 Reasons Why You May Not Be Achieving Your #Vision

WARNING: READ THIS CAREFULLY Before you read on to where I reveal The Solution –

The Solution – for 10 Reasons Why You May Not Be Achieving Your #Vision  – is a POWERFUL #Live, interactive and life changing immersive experience using a tried, tested and proven unique combination of modalities You MAY be taken out of your Comfort Zone (this is the ONLY way true change and the creation of something entirely NEW can happen) however you will be in a safe environment. There will be a raising of your #Vibration and exchanges of #Energy. What you discover will be yours for your lifetime, embedded in your subconscious, with tools and techniques to revisit wherever and whenever you choose as your life and business move on!

Because the Solution and its potential are so Powerful, this is not for everyone. In fact, there is a stringent vetting process.

Earlier I said “When achieving your #Vision is a struggle the fault may well lie in the process you used to create it, especially since there is a proven and powerful method that always works!

Here are 10 Reasons to get you thinking about taking a different approach. Remember, do things the way you’ve always done and you’ll get the results you always got. CHANGE is the only way to Be, Do and Have MORE…..

#1  Visualising on its own is NOT enough

#2  Vision boards alone are not enough

#3  Affirmations alone, or with vision boards, or visualising, are not enough

#4  Isolated #vision for a specific purpose but without the bigger #Holistic picture may not fit your true life’s purpose

#5  The method by which you created your #vision is not the Real Deal and did NOT emerge from your Inner Spirit, Soul, Heart and Purpose Connections

#6  You have not set your #vision to work for you in your subconscious by turning on your  #SuccessSatNAV™ to attract the exact opportunities, people and resources you need to succeed

#7  You did not do the essential pre-vision Creative Preparation Process (ebook cover)

template-6-36228421506412134-large

#8  You haven’t put in place the Destination Me™ 3 Magic Steps To Success that make success inevitable

#9  You are not making yourself accountable to anyone

#10 Your vision is not aligned to your values so you have left open the door to self-sabotage and sabotage by others

Finally, you were not aware that your #VisionCompass™ is the Central Core of the Vital Vision Destination Me™ Programme  designed, developed, tested, perfected by Valerie Dwyer, My Wonderful Life Coach™ and proven globally with thousands of entrepreneurs and businesses over 20 years.

This is what Roger James Hamilton, Founder of the global Entrepreneurs Institute said:

“Hands up whoever heard of this idea of creating a vision board.  Okay why is it that it often doesn’t work at the level we think it would work?

Well, Valerie has figured it out!  And she actually has a proven product called Destination Me™ which has at the heart of it something which is called her Vision Compass™.  Powerful because the Vision Compass gives you are really, really clear direction way beyond the picture of your vision itself.

And if you think that a Compass, it kind of looks like this and it’s got a big arrow and the first thing she does is she ..

The first step in the process is – Nourish your Spirit

And what this means is she’ll put you into an environment where you have music, movement, colour; where you have images but also inputs so you get inspired.  Spirit means Breath, so you are actually in a meditative state, tapping into where it is you are going.  Most people don’t get into that that state but we have got all these tools and once you allow this to happen you actually get into that space.

Step Two – Experience Your Vision

When this is where you go into this whole experience of where you’re sharing it, to yourself first of all, where you’re putting yourself in a really beautiful place, a Beach Club, a Retreat, but you can do it in your own home, creating this beautiful place where you internalise, then externalise, writing down, seeing what you’re feeling.  You’re seeing why you love this, more than this, at the same time, you are Wakening Your Soul

Step Three – Wakening Your Soul

You’re shutting down your mind and your Inner Critic so you are not allowed to speak, not allowed to be thinking things through from a logical point of view and saying why can’t happen, not listening to your small voice inside-so there are techniques we use so you can be apart of from that.  So you are shutting down your thoughts in a way that your Soul is actually opening and wakens so you’ve experienced your vision, wakened your Soul and that’s when the Power then comes in.  You then get to Speak Your Truth.

Step Four – Speak Your Truth

Speak your truth and you are speaking your truth to others who have already gone through the same process so they are already open to that as well, and then you co-create a future that is your future and their future as well”.

And you remember this because the N for Nourish your Spirit and the E for Experience your Vision and the S for Speak Your Truth and the W for Wakening Your Soul give you your Compass – which then allows you to know your place, where you are heading and find your True North.

As I said at the beginning -The Solution Comes With A Warning!!

VISION! What is It? Why Do You Need It? How Do You Make It More Powerful and Vital with I.M.P.A.C.T™? And Featuring the Alison Delaney ‘Little Chick and Little Bird’ Case Study

 

Destination Me™ Vital Vision Compass

 

Vital Vision™, The Powerful Source of Authentic Self-Leadership Has Huge IMPACT!

#Vision is globally recognised as the imperative for Leaders – but this is for EVERYONE! This is THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL for Designing, Creating and Living the Life You Love, with Courage and Confidence, on Power, Passion and Purpose!

This is an updated version of an article originally published early 2017. There are some text changes. The featured #womenentrepreneurs have also risen to dizzying new heights – starting new businesses and adventures……

Vision is Life Changing and World Changing and the means to reconnect with your own – or design your own, should be accessible to everyone.

I – #Imagination – to Dream and Create What You Specifically Want – With Real Intention

 

M – #Magic Insights – Mastermind and Masterplanning Strategies Flow

 

P – #Power – that comes from the Specific Vital Vision™ Blueprint Process that Shuts down your Internal Critic Voice

 

A – #Attraction –  (Cosmic Ordering, LOA, The Secret) that Comes from Switching on Your Brain’s Subconscious RAS SAT NAV™. Knowing, Feeling, Seeing Believing With Clarity What You Want and Will Receive and are Ready to Receive

 

C – #Connection – Mind, Spirit, Body and Soul. Think Cosmic Ordering, The Secret and The Law of Attraction Rolled into One, In Your Corner and On Your Side

 

T – #Transformation – with Traction and Leverage that just keeps on Growing

 

First, let me share why I am writing this. This article is based on what really works for people to create and live their ideal life and business but it also has much wider applications globally and we need get it out to a much bigger audience. With all the changes happening in the world, thousands more people, entrepreneurs, leaders, businesses and organisations, even governments and countries, would benefit from having access to the powerful methods, tools and techniques, based on real-life Success Stories, not academic theory used in the Vital Vision™ Blueprint process.

This is based on real-life Success Stories, not academic theory. The methods and techniques used in the Vital Vision™ Blueprint process are tried, tested and proven over 20 years working with thousands of entrepreneurs and leaders, businesses of all sizes and organisations – and it works powerfully. I hope you enjoy reading this, find something of value to you and welcome your feedback and encourage you to share.

So, I am sharing this with you because after years of providing private 1-2-1 Vital Vision™ Blueprint Sessions, Destination Me ™ and other Life Change Success programmes, Coaching and Mentoring and speaking on these topics at major conferences in the UK and Europe, I am creating the first complete turnkey online programme to equip more people globally with the tools I created to ‘Design, Live and Love the Life of Your Dreams with Courage and Confidence in Purpose, Passion and Power’ and there will be opportunities for people to train and and deliver this process.

For leaders, entrepreneurs with teams or small businesses, larger businesses and other organisations the Shared Vital Vision™ Blueprint is the extended technique designed to work specifically for them and is key to their success in engagement, traction, leverage and commitment to personal ownership in achievement of the vision. This topic is covered in another article.

I am not discussing all the various (and proven) Neuroscience, NLP, CBT and other modalities which are working in the Vital Vision™ Blueprint process but you may well recognise some. One of the keys to success is the precise combination of elements that I use and how these work together, gained through several years of developing this work.

Yes, we’re doing Alison’s Case Study but couldn’t resist sharing a peek with the lovely Michele Walsh, michelewalsh.com and now Author of The BIG Shift which I highly recommend you read asap! Have a look here

SO…

Vision! What is It?

Lip service to Vision infuriates me! It is such a disservice. When people – businesses and organisations especially – say let’s create a Vision Statement – which may be doomed to failure because where is the I.M.P.A.C.T. and Passion that importantly engages the subconscious and the emotions?

Vision? Many people will say ‘Eyesight’ or ‘Seeing’, which it is, but here we are talking about ‘seeing’ in another way. ‘Seeing’ potential, opportunity and what’s possible. When you introduce the ‘Vital’ element for I.M.P.A.C.T, you also harness ‘Mindsight’ and ‘Mindset’, ‘Heartsight’ ‘Soulsight’ and ‘Spiritsight’ with ‘Insight’ and ‘Foresight’ connected to your conscious and unconscious brain. It’s the Law of Attraction, The Secret and Cosmic Ordering, all rolled into one and on your side!

Can you IMAGINE how Powerful it would be to have all this working for you to achieve the success you seek?

A ‘Vital’ Vision is the most powerful form of vision you can have. What makes a vision vital? Although it is focussed on the WHAT – it is the specific How, the method, the technique, the combination of elements and energy used for forming it that is crucial to success. Some people, the most successful Entrepreneurs and Leaders especially, (but not all) have this ability as a natural gift or talent. You will recognise instantly those that have it, there is an aura about them and their success is written large on the world, delivering wonderful achievements and attracting huge followings.

Others can achieve their own vision for success through a variety of methods, including Vision Boards which work on some levels for some people. I’ll explain more later. But there is no direct comparison to personal physical and spiritual experience of the Vital Vision™ Blueprint creation process and the speed at which it brings results.

I explain the ‘Vital’ part of vision like this. Think of your most powerful memories. Bring one to mind right now. What is it about that memory? Is it a picture, a movie? Is it colourful, noisy, moving, do you smell a particular aroma? One of your senses is usually the trigger for this recall, whether it is from smell, sight, sound, touch, taste or emotions.  If no string memory is coming to mind right now, which can happen, just make a note to observe the next time something triggers a powerful memory and note what the trigger was. With a Vital Vision you have total recall and connection, whether you are thinking about it or not, it is stored as a powerful feeling and memory and is continually and quietly working for you, even when you are asleep or ‘taking a day off’!

Opinion is divided – some people think you either have it or you don’t. Well here’s another thought that I have found to be true. We all have Vision, but with the majority of people it is not ‘Connected’ to their conscious or ‘Turned On’ ans ‘Tuned in’ to the right channels.

The most powerful memories have a combination of all these elements and so does a ‘Vital Vision™. Why? Because the way you create it is Impactful and unforgettable.

When creating a ‘Vital Vision™ we also switch on your brain’s RAS SAT NAV™ so that you are tuned in to spot the exact opportunities, circumstances, people and resources you need to achieve your vision. Think of this like ‘The Law of Attraction, The Secret and Cosmic Ordering’ all lined up and working for you on your side. It is truly amazing what happens when you have your own Vital Vision™.

I have seen so many thousands of lives and businesses transformed and fulfilled, stepped up to a much higher level of achievement and success, new businesses started, world class speakers and new powerful leaders emerging, new products created, best selling books written, global businesses launched, and much more, all in the space of a few short months, and that’s why I am so passionate about helping more entrepreneurs experience creating their ‘Vital Vision™.

Because when you decide you want to connect or reconnect to your Inner Vision were born with, some people think of this as destiny, or create a new vision for your life or business, how wonderful to make that connection and bring your vision out into the world where your unconscious mind is still working at getting it without you even having to be constantly thinking about it!

What Triggers the Need for a Vital Vision™?

This is different for everyone. You may be quite content but feel there is something major missing in your life but don’t know what. Or you may be extremely dissatisfied, frustrated and desperate for change. There are many triggers. Add your own if they are not here but the Common ones are:

+             Change – either because you want this or caused by circumstances around you

+             Finding yourself ‘ Stuck ‘ or ‘Blocked’

+             Frustration with your life/business

+             Pressure to ‘Change’

+             Significant Emotional Incident

+             Loss of some kind

+             Fed up with searching for solutions (to anything)

+             At a crossroads not sure what to do next or where to start

+             Needing some Clarity, Focus and Direction (not necessarily with something

life- changing – could be a new business, innovation, or something else)

+             Want to make a difference

+             Want to be so much more Successful (even though you may have already

enjoyed Success)

Clients usually arrive with a major challenge or opportunity. For example, after years of struggling to make a success of their business, working hard but not getting the returns they deserve, they want a major boost, more sales, income and profits, add some Rocket Fuel! Or perhaps they are at a crossroads or considering a complete life change but don’t know where to begin or a major opportunity appears and they are not sure whether to pursue it and what to do. It IS sometimes very difficult to do this alone and get it absolutely  right for you.

it just ‘Is’ and it happens – with your permission and direction.

Many people create Vision Board by pasting pictures from magazines and that’s OK if it works for them. But I found that does not work for me. Why? Because the actual act of physically creating external images of what you truly want, drawn from your own imagination, is a key success factor. PLUS I know the power of your own Vital Vision™ that only You can create because it is already deep within you, and needs a guide with the combination of techniques, energy and skill to help you draw this out in the right way for you!

Entrepreneurs also come when they are already successful but are not feeling fulfilled. They have the feeling that despite all their success, something is still missing and they want to find out what it is. Experiencing their ‘Vital Vision™ has resulted in, for example, important new charities being launched, finding new partners and relationships, exiting business profitably and gaining freedom, becoming an ‘Expert Speaker’ on the global stage, discovering new ways to do good in the world and give back, new horizons and adventures, gaining and giving permission to follow a long-held dream that has been pushed down and ignored in the getting on with their businesses and lives.  And much more. It’s different for everyone, powerful and it works wherever you are at!

This is not a one hit wonder. Once you have your ‘Vital Vision™ – it keeps on and on working for you! Over time, your life and the world will change and you will be able to adapt from the strong foundation and tools that you now have.

Don’t take my word for it though. I’d love to just share with you what happened for Alison Delaney since experiencing her Vital Vision™.

Vital Vision™ Blueprint Case Study – Alison Delany Founder Little Bird People Development and Author of ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’

Alison Delaney  Little Chick Book stackValerie Dwyer with Alison Delaney 2

Here’s Alison’s experience…..

UPDATE – alisondelaney.global RiseUp! Coach

Alison is a Coach, International Motivational Speaker,the Founder of the successful company Little Bird People Development. She is also the Author of a very special book for inspiring children’s dreams – ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’. I encourage you to read the book! It is absolutely beautiful and inspiring for adults too! When we met and she handed me a copy I just knew that every child (and adult) deserved to have the book for themselves.

Since Alison made this video her ‘Vital Vision™ has kept on working and will continue to do so. In the past 6 months she has developed the new Little Bird Dreams Workshops, initially having huge success working with UK schools then recently had their Global Launch in South Africa as the starting point to take her inspirational book and workshops to schools in every Country through Country Licensing, with enquiries already in from New Zealand, India and USA.

She now has a Buy One Gift One so that for every book sold, the purchaser is gifting a book to a less fortunate child in another country AND the buyer gets to write an inspiring and encouraging message to that child for the book inside cover. I have seen such wonderful little notes that make my heart sing to read them.

Global Companies are now starting to incorporate the Workshop programme and Buy One Gift One books into their CSR Programmes.

Little Chick is now the star of a lovely range of desirable tableware and giftware and there’s much more to come. Global Offers of one kind or another pour in – but they are being studied carefully because they must align with Alison’s Vital Vision™!

So just take a quick look at this very short video link Alison Delaney Talks about Her Vital Vision to see Alison explain in her own words what happened for her. Remember, this was just after she experienced the process that will now always be hers and keeps on working. What I have outlined above has happened since and it’s an ongoing journey.

I’d love your feedback. I’d also love to help. What did you think after reading this article? What was helpful for you? Too long? Too short? Prefer video or audio format? What would you like to know more about related to this article? As the topic is visual would you like more images or infographics?

Are You Running To Catch Up With Grandma! Sage Lessons for Management, Business and Life! In Pursuit of Effective Management!

February 9, 2018

Running To Catch Up With Grandma! Sage Lessons for Management, Business and Life!

Recently I rediscovered a copy of this speech which I heard when I was one of the first female Chairmen of a Branch of the British Institute of Management. It was delivered by Kevan Hunt, the then Director of Employee Reations at British Coal, and I remember thinking how many of the qualities of that particular ‘Grandma’ were reflected in my own extremely entrepreneurial ancestor….

Kevan told us:

“We live in a heavily populated country and a heavily populated world and, with many people there are many opinions.  There ARE common reference points but there are many points of difference.  BE it politics, religion, social cultures and behaviour.

You don’t need to look to other continents to see the differences.  They are here and we – Management – contribute to them.  There is, however, one national, international, endurable, constant, common currency and she is called Grandma.

To my mind grandmas everywhere are without doubt and by general consent judged to be totally reliable, highly productive and are seen as having all systems AND processes fully under control.

They are a most excellent role model.  Consequently, the message I have to deliver, especially to my gender, is Gentlemen! – Management everywhere would be much more effective if they only took more notice of Grandma!!

Indeed, those who have a responsibility for any form of management training and development would do well to draw up a checklist of the qualities of Grandma – they should then form the benchmark for assessing the quality of you and your management- let me just identify a few.

Time Management

Time is precious.  Fortunately, grandmas know this.  The workaday pattern of their lives demands a practical understanding of the time the management and critical path analysis.

Between early morning wash day blues and throwing the cat out last thing at night she prioritises activities so that events flow in a seemingly natural way, yet, she can always find time for a cuddle when it is needed.

Moreover, despite all the tasks to be accomplished she almost always does what she says she will do.  To the young and inexperienced she is a rock of reliability in a sea of uncertainties.

Guiding/Mentoring

She is a guide, she is a mentor.  Greek mythology may not be her strong suit so in the role of mentor she may know little of Odysseus’s wise and trusted Counsellor.  However, mythological she is not!!  She’s real, she has substance.

She knows that as guide, mentor, adviser, she’s helping to establish a framework of knowledge, skills and standards.  She herself deploys a wide range of skills, including the art of persuasion; but in practicing persuasion she understands the dangers!!

Persuasion

Whenever we try to persuade people, we are entering the privacy of their minds.  Therefore, we shouldn’t seek to persuade for personal benefit.  Indeed, persuasion is only justifiable if it is for anybody’s benefit other than the persuader.

Grandma knows that persuasion is not a contest but an information service.  That you don’t try to change people but learn to live with them.

Resource Management

Grandma’s know all about resource management and stock control.  They can compete with any sort of inventory system man cares to devise.  The you know about the problems of scarce capital availability and stretched revenues.

Grant last budget had to live within their means and put a bit to one side to cater for the rainy day that they know always comes along.  Grandma knew had to about D.C.F. before man – or was it a woman who went on to become a Grandma – invented it!!  And they knew where the first to indulge in creative accountancy- but in their case such creativity was not to short change the Stockholders or the Tax Collector.

In my experience, in industry, business and commerce generally there has been and indeed continues to be a woeful lack of understanding of money management.

As I said earlier, despite all the clever accountancy techniques man seeks to employ -we’re still running to catch up with Grandma on purse string management.

Individual Needs/Team Building

Grandma knows about looking after the needs of the individual and about team building.  She knows all the various characteristics and personality traits that make members of the family what they are.

Her assessment centre has a wide range of support systems.  Most importantly, her process of personal assessment begins with a soft lap, a warm heart and an open mind.

Soft lap apart, there is nothing unique in her range of support systems.  Whilst they have a place in the selection process, in my view assessment centres would benefit from a bit more of the Grandma touch alongside the psychological tests.

Grandma knows who works best with whom.  She knows how to blend for different occasions to get the best mix.  She knows when to compromise when to hold out.

She knows absolutely that the collective qualities of the family group can be greater than the sum of the individuals in it.  She constantly works at it to achieve that end.

In the long run the best team will always win.  Grandma asserts that as a fact and it is not open to debate.  Individual skills and talents are important- but team blend and collective performance provide the cohesive strength that almost always secures the goal.

What Grandma already knows, we should ensure management learn!!  That is: that people are not just another resource: they are our greatest asset-management are people-it is management who provide the driving force in any business and on them rests all!!

Total Quality Management

Grandmas practice total quality management.  To them it’s a natural action that, regrettably, we in management have seemingly failed to recognise or indeed appreciate the importance of.

Remember! – Grandmas make sure that their whites are whiter, their apple pie tastier, their bottled preserves in greater demand – that is the pursuit of Total Quality.

Grandma knows it is more important and cost effective to maintain quality and standards than trying to recreate them -why don’t we!!

In the pursuit of our management goals we often lose sight of the basic tenets that so obviously contribute to the wellbeing of family life.  We constantly hear it said that total quality management requires a Cultural change.

I fundamentally disagree!!  What we need to recognise is that the values and personal standards that contribute to the maintenance of normal, happy, family life are readily transferable to the workplace situation.

We don’t need a new culture.  We need to resurrect and reaffirm the intrinsic values of the old!!

Communications

Grandmas know great deal about communicating.  They sometimes sit there just saying nothing -they do that because they know that listening is the other half of the conversation-if people stop listening there is no point in going on talking.

As speakers we needed to make ourselves “easy to listen to”, if I am not achieving that end, I should spend more time with Grandma!  And as listeners we need to be more like you are this evening, that is: we need to listen and be seen to be listening.  Moreover, and despite all the distractions, we need to concentrate on what is being said.  Most of us don’t do that, we ponder on what we think ought to be said or more likely, what we are going to say when the speaker stops talking.

So, Grandma says, stop pondering on what you are going to say and hear the speaker out!  Relax!  Try to understand the speaker, not to win the argument.

Similarly, Grandma knows that language, and other systems of symbols, are the somewhat imprecise tools we use to assess our world, to communicate our assessment to others and to discover their assessments.  When we succeed we help each other to control ourselves and our working environment more effectively.  When we fail we can usually measure the cost on the bottom line!

No two people see exactly the same the world and so we can communicate with each other only to the extent that our separate worlds overlap.  Furthermore, no two situations are exactly the same and no one situation ever stays the same.  Therefore, the meaning of our words changes as the situation changes.  Now that can, and often does, create doubts and suspicions.  But Grandma never said that communications were easy!

Consequently, before we can communicate with each other in words we have to be able to agree on what identifiable things, situations or actions we are jointly referring to.  We have to establish and agree on, our “Referents”.  Words are not things.  They are labels for things.  When there is no common referent then the meaning of the speaker cannot pass to the listener.

So, Grandma says ask “What is the referent?” Think and speak in pictures.  She also says “Don’t just listen to what I say – listen to what I mean”

Empathy

She has empathy -she puts herself in the other person’s place.  She knows that by doing so she’ll better understand the other person’s point of view.

So, what we should be teaching in management is the ability for one to say not:

“Why doesn’t the other person see things my way” but asking instead “Why does the other person think and feel the way they do?”

Grandma does that – why don’t we?!

Conclusions

Grandma is the Chairman of the company called “Family”.  She is also Chief Executive and the principal shareholder of the assets.  She knows that adding value will sustain the strength and cohesiveness of the family.  She knows that short term expediencies seldom benefit the long-term interests of those around her.  As I said earlier, she knows that you conserve resources during the bad times in order to enjoy the fruit of the good.

Grandma has one other essential quality that no member of management should be without. She has sustainable enthusiasm and, moreover, in others she can spot the difference between the enthusiast and the ambitious.

She knows who is willing to draw water from the well and who wants to be first to drink it.  She knows that enthusiasm is there to be nurtured, to be recognized and to be rewarded for jobs will done.  She also knows that ambition has to be guided, occasionally restrained, but never stifled.

Grandma understands that compassion and humility are not weaknesses but strengths.  That wanting to be fair is a greater gain than wanting to be right.  She knows that morality and integrity are not tradeable, that they can be lost but not restored.

I know these things because I’m married to a Grandma.  She runs our family company, she is totally reliable, highly productive and she has all systems and processes fully under control.

Me – I just help to run British Coal – but frankly, I’m like my alternative theme –

“I am running to catch up with Grandma!!”

CONGRATULATIONS! Inspirational Buddy Bags Foundation UK Founder Karen Williams Empowering Female Social Entrepreneur Training in India Through My Wonderful Life Coach™ Global Partnership with B1G1

September 20, 2017

I’m delighted to announce another successful funding of a Female Social Entrepreneur in India thanks entirely to working with the #Inspirational Karen Williams, Buddy Bag Foundation UK founder, on her new holistic #VitalVision.

Karen Williams – My Wonderful Life Coach B1G1 Gratitude Certificate for 21 08 17

The Buddy Bag Foundation is an incredibly valuable and much needed organisation and is surpassing all targets thanks to a growing army of volunteers and supporters around the UK. The original target for 2020 was 2020 bags sourced, packed and delivered to children in need of this comforter. The 10,000th Bag Packed Celebration has just been held and the new target is 20,200 by 2020.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they reached 48,000 by 2020 which is the number of children needing this emergency support!

Heartily encourage you to visit The Buddy Bag Foundation and ask yourself what you can do to help reach this new target.

Their Mission

The Buddy Bag Foundation – Buddy Bags for Children in Emergency Care

They have created the Buddy Bag Foundation in response to the rising number of children who enter emergency care after fleeing violent situations at home.

Restoring a sense of safety and security into a child’s life during a traumatic time is one of the first steps to recovery. By providing these children with a few essential items, they can help make the transition into emergency care a little easier.

To support children in this situation they have created the Buddy Bag to provide comfort when all else has been removed.

How #Wonderful. The website has lots more information including the lovely letters from children who have been helped. This Charity is making a BIG DIFFERENCE to children’s lives that also benefits those connected with the children….

See what YOU can do! Remember to check out The Buddy Bag Foundation

Note: For every project we undertake at My Wonderful Life Coach™ and for each VIP Client we work with we fund key local charitable projects around the world through our Global Partnership with B1G1 Business For Good
