Delighted to be Invited!! It’s an Encore! Presenting My Entirely New ‘Breaking Through the Barriers to Success’ Session for #LWED #2 Lincolnshire Women’s Enterprise Day Conference 17th November 2016. Save the Date. Better Still – Book Now and Join Me!

June 21, 2016

Following the hugely successful 2015 Inaugural #LWED Lincolnshire Women’s Enterprise Day Conference at Belton Woods, Grantham – where we received the accolade of GEWUK High Impact Host 2015, I’m invited back for 2016!! Thank You Fiona White for inviting me to #Inspire again! And I have something entirely new for you that you will NOT want to Miss if you are frustrated with your BIG DREAMS of Success!

Since this event, I have shared what I know in Prague and South Africa and clients have achieved amazing successes including writing and launching their very first books,  Michele Walsh Says 10x their income, launching their own Charities, starting second businesses and SO much more… it’s all there for you – IF you want it and know HOW.

Previously, my interactive session, my ‘Magic Formula 3 Keys for Success’ focusing on the ‘Power of Vital Vision™ to Create the Life and Business You  REALLY Want’ drew rave reviews and delivered some amazing mindset shifts and ‘Lightbulb Moments’ during our ‘One Big Thing’ session. The feedback from delegates was amazing.

This time, I have developed something entirely new for you – I’m taking the wraps off  – this is me sharing the ‘warts and all’ the secrets of ‘Resilience! The No #1 Vital Skill for Entrepreneurs…after Vital Vision™ that is..

In order to help you find your way to gain the #Courage you need to step out of your Comfort Zone, an essential ingredient for real success, I will share my secrets to how I overcame several major life threatening challenges to keep going and succeed as a Serial Entrepreneur with 10 businesses started, bought, merged, grown and sold, as well as being a Woman Leader as President, Chair, Board Member and Non-Executive Director of a range of businesses and organisations in the private, public and third sectors.

They say a cat has nine lives, well I’ve exhausted every one of these – and I’m still going!! To succeed as an #Entrepreneur you need to be ‘Unstoppable’, with self-driven (no one else can do it for you!) unshakeable belief and confidence and I will show you HOW to create your very own!

We all have challenges, day to day, I know this. It is a fact of life. But can you #IMAGINE running a business when you have to recover from being paralysed from the neck down after falling from a 3 storey building – once you awake from Coma? Can you #IMAGINE being involved in  a 3 vehicle pile up where your car was written off and you suffered spinal injuries and PTSD?  Can you #IMAGINE being crippled – and I mean crippled – by Rheumatoid Arthritis… And that’s not even the half of it!!

People keep asking for my book about this – rather than the one I have already written to huge global acclaim – ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ and I promise that I will write it –  but first and foremost, I am interested in sharing what I know about Resilience where it has the impact to change lives immediately –  rather than spend my time writing…but I will get there.

If you have a long-held, unfulfilled dream of the life and business you REALLY want -I encourage you to register your interest NOW at #LWED 2 Lincolnshire Women’s Enterprise Day Conference 2016 and I will be there help you on your journey…

Looking forward to connecting with YOU on 17th November 2016. Remember, go here now, tickets will go fast!  #LWED Lincolnshire Women’s Enterprise Day 2016

Julie Anne Hart’s Star is truly rising from overcoming her own fear that kept her ’small’.  The struggle now over, having granted herself the Gift of Freedom, she has stepped up and into her unlimited potential and wants to help you set yourself free too.

 “Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery” J. K. Rowling – Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire

Synchronicity! There’s no such thing as coincidence. However you happened across this review, it has found you with an important message, so read on – and please share it to help others.

This beautiful and powerful pocket sized little book is “For everyone who wants to learn to LIVE, not just to exist!  If you have ever said “There must be more to life than this” or you know that you constantly pull back from being all you want to be, from your own will, or because of other people, then this little book is for you too!

“WHAT are you afraid of? Put another way – “What are YOU afraid of?”

 I don’t promise an easy read, you have some work to do,  but if you are feeling ’lack’ of any kind and are determined to find the solution, get back in touch with, trust and be guided by your own intuition, your  ‘gut feeling’, then you have found the book you need right now.

Everyone has some fear, either big bad ones that stop them in their tracks and paralyse them or little sneaky ones that hold them back from realising the potential they are capable of. Some people find coping strategies but the bigger prize is the Total Freedom of Self Worth, and Julie Anne, being an expert in giving into and living with fear and finally breaking out to open her eyes and overcome to live the life she really wants, is your guide. She shares her learning and intuition from her own successful journey from being kept small with self-doubt and self-sabotage to growing tall through discovering her truth and inner wisdom, developing her belief and self-empowerment.

Now Julie Anne reaches out, through her book and retreats, to every woman who needs to find your ’Healing Way’, Change your Perception and  “Awaken to the Beauty of Who You Really Are, The Miracle of You”.

Yes, in order to protect us from danger, real or imagined, ‘fight or flight’ fear does keep us ‘small’ whether it is self-inflicted or as a result of the words and actions of other people around us, and can prevent us living our life of happiness, purpose, passion and potential.

Julie Anne comes to your rescue with her powerful insights, thought-provoking questions, tools, techniques, exercises and affirmations. She shows you how to awaken your true spirit and move into harmony, creating the life you love, free from the pain of struggle. Discover how to eliminate the patterns that you use to create what you DON’T want. Turn it around and transform your life.

Back to that important message. Synchronicity. Whatever resonated with you in this review, you will find SO MUCH MORE in ’Sleeping with the Myth of Fear’. Go get your own copy and read, re-read, re-read until you change! If you are in need of answers, change, growth and expansion, please do not let this opportunity pass you by!

Warrior Women Liz Keaney

I read Warrior Women through cover to cover in one go. 5***** Highly recommended Magnetic, magical and inspirational content resonated, so much that I contacted Liz and told her so! She is a Soul Sister, we are connected by Spirit. Why? Through experience we have discovered the route to our greatest riches and found what is truly important by overcoming or finding ways to deal with major challenges and adversity. Featuring true stories of other Warrior Women you will connect with and The KindnessCODE to help you personally.

Warrior Women is a powerful yet practical book. Many of the words are my words, used throughout my Entrepreneur Coaching and Mentoring career, helping women entrepreneurs who are stuck or blocked to design and then support them to implement their VitalVision Blueprint™ for the successful and holistic Life and Business they REALLY want.

Many of the words are also your words or, if you are not quite there yet, find the way to make these your words too.  The principle of “Dare to put your own oxygen mask on first” is clear, so obvious really, in order to be here to help others we need to ensure our own survival. Powerful messages and affirmations that deserve acceptance abound in Warrior Women – “Nothing can, nothing ever will exceed the relationship you have with yourself” were truer words ever spoken? And it is only when we accept this concept that our lives can truly change and improve. Here is understanding

It is profound to think that when we don’t believe that we truly deserve what we want, that perfect life, then we will never ever allow ourselves to have it. Without belief it’s a case of self-sabotage our dreams or allow someone else to sabotage it for us. And that is why Belief (Faith) is such a powerful force for receiving and achieving!

Warrior Women is for every woman today who sets impossibly high (or low) expectations of herself. Do yourself a big favour. Read Warrior Women, discover how other women overcame their challenges and embraced their transformations and begin to see how you can make life much easier on yourself while still being the ‘success’ you deserve. Journey into a deeper understanding and find your new way.

“The only thing that ever stops us from stepping into our magnificence is fear”. “What you resist persists”, this is the guide to reconnect with and learn to love yourself; put away procrastination and fade the fear. Here’s your help to overcome your challenges, reinspire and remotivate yourself. Liz quotes from my favourite work of Marianne Williamson’s “A Return to Love” – it begins “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”

Packed with sound advice, tips, techniques and sage quotes, a neat pocket-sized 176 page paperback. Easy to read. Truly Inspirational.  Connect with Liz and get your own copy of Warrior Women  – www.lizkeaney.com

RIP OFF YOUR NECKTIE AND DANCE, Leen Zevenbergen, Reviewed by Valerie Dwyer – Serial Entrepreneur, Coach, Mentor, Inspirational Speaker, founder of My Wonderful Life Coach™, Strategic Insight, Everything is Possible™, and other enterprises. http://www.mywonderfullifecoach.co.uk

August 18, 2011

 Hop on now. Discover the Chaordic Alternative. Next stop Culture Change Central!

 “Revitalise your business with innovation and entrepreneurship”, sets the scene so you know what to expect, only you don’t because you’re in for surprises. Leen begins with a “passionate plea for authenticity in entrepreneurship” and goes on to decry ‘loincloth’ projects-somewhat worse than sticking plaster. I give this book 5 ***** and say buy it now! 

Thought leader Leen Zevenbergen  aims to get everyone out of their straight jackets, to think out of the box, and a high five from me for referring to ‘vision’ in his first sentence, since this is the birth of business transformation. (As a Vision Facilitator am I biased? Of course yes! Vision changes everything!) And it all begins with Leadership. How can a leader inspire others if they are totally uninspiring, this is part of the problem for which Leen offers solutions.

Is yours a ‘Conscious Company’ that demonstrates strategic keenness, energises people and stimulates creative thinking and inspiration. Yes? Well then, you are amongst the minority, the pack leaders. Say No? Better find out what this is about then before it’s too late to change! 

When business is going well, who sees trouble coming or even thinks about it? Learn how to avoid complacency now with the ‘Nightmare Competitor’. “Paradoxically”, Leen tells us, “from time to time a good nightmare guarantees in the long run a better night’s rest”. Don’t ask, but read the book. From the end of the second chapter I already knew there are too many important lessons here to cover

Businesses are living through a time of extreme control and regulation (straight jackets). Life is easier by fitting people, staff, customers, into little boxes. Anxiety rules! This spells death for innovation and entrepreneurship. Yes, authentic leadership and transparency are the new kids on the block. Build a new (I say ‘shared’) corporate vision = revitalise your business. We’re reminded that everyone has creativity, how much of it people display outside of the workplace and how easy it is to turn it on. Welcome to the company where people achieve what’s necessary and also have fun!

Leen thinks we’re guilty of murdering the ‘thrill’ of business and proceeds to show us how to put it back. Having persevered past chapter one I walked into a library of desirable futures packed with stimulating ideas for better business backed up by great examples. Leen and I share some common ground in business experiences: especially in how people should be treated; the value of their collective role in turning their company around; that slash and burn can turn business survival into terminal and turnaround needs some investment, however small, in processes like these.

As I’ve experienced first hand when facilitating my SI White Table Visioning Process™, given permission and opportunity to work together as a team, group or company to create a shared vision for the organisation, people bring about positive transformation.  ‘Shared vision’ just two little words that in practise are hard to achieve yet offers major impact.

Leen describes what true creativity looks like, from both an entrepreneur’s and a manager’s perspective and how smaller companies have the market edge, how to create ‘flow’ and when “doing nothing” is right for everyone. Get rid of the ‘guilt trip’, read for yourself what this is all about and learn something invaluable today.  Smile if you must then understand the question – What is ’idiotic’? Something brilliant!

POWERFUL STUFF! VITAL CONVERSATIONS Making the Impossible Conversation Possible by Alec Grimsley book review Valerie Dwyer

June 15, 2010
 

Making the Impossible Conversation Possible

VITAL CONVERSATIONS

VITAL (for VITAL also read ‘DIFFICULT’) CONVERSATIONS takes you on an important self-development journey to hone your skills for business and life! Your destination is THIRD GENERATION THINKING. The Ultimate Key to Success? You decide.  His introduction, ‘How to get the most out of this book’, tells you that Alec Grimsley means business! His explanation of why we all avoid Vital Conversations and a look at the cost of so doing are thought generators! An old and key business message in a new environment is the value of ‘preparation, preparation, preparation’! How often do people have all the necessary knowledge, understanding and preparation under their belt before taking on their most difficult conversations? If they don’t how on earth do they gain it? Well, read the book, find out! 

   Billed as “A new and practical approach for identifying, preparing and engaging in those difficult but “must have” conversations including sensitive issues; major decisions, inappropriate behaviour and giving bad news (even as a practising Coach I found much more) VITAL CONVERSATIONS lives up to the promise.

   Powerful content this – the ‘mental software upgrade’ to help you gain a significant and substantial improvement in the effectiveness of those ‘Vital Conversations’ everyone finds it difficult to deal with.  Peppered with common sense, the over-riding purpose succeeds …read my full review here: http://www.mywonderfullifecoach.co.uk/bookreviews.aspx
