Client Story: From Guilt & Imposter Syndrome To Freedom & Smart Living!

Client Story: From Guilt & Imposter Syndrome To Freedom & Smart Living!

I adore hearing from my clients just how much our work together transforms their lives. My clients often come to me for business training, but as Danielle La Porte says: how you do anything is how you do everything. That means it’s often their life, their relationships, their money stories and their self-confidence that is all heightened and expanded along with their business success.

I wanted to share with you this stunning interview with my client Trina Keane, on her experience of our work together:  

What’s your name? Trina Keane

What do you do? I’m a Desire Map Workshop facilitator and founder of the UpStarts community and website.  

How long have you been in business?

9 months

What do you LOVE about the work you do?

The dawning of purpose/passion in a client as they work through the process. The freedom to create my own terms. Tying everything I love (writing, research, spirituality, philosophy, creativity, caring, healing, intuitive readings for positive enlightenment for others) into a business I love. A sense of Purpose, Passion, Prosperity.

Where was your business at before 1:1 Coaching with Louise?

Wondering if I could pull it off. I had held a couple of workshops and loved the experience but had no clue how to proceed. I had NO IDEA how to set up any of the social media supports and I was incapable of putting myself ‘out there’.

Where is your business at now in comparison?

I’ve got a website I’m not ashamed of (miles to go though) and am beginning to build a an interested community of women in my tribe profile. I also have a plan ready to go into action shortly to approach hotels/spas with a retreat like package.

What are the big breakthroughs you’ve experienced this year?

I have worked through so many blocks with Louise through the months. Most powerfully though was coming out of the Imposter Syndrome. Also moving past the difficulty in asking for what I wanted - especially money - as I haven’t been the earner in the family. So Liberating! Certain aspects of my childhood were deeply painful and I’ve learned to go back and bring that child with me on this journey leaving behind a sense of vulnerability when I’m outside my comfort zone and developing a sense of adventure. I’ve also realised that it’s never too late to learn new skills. I didn’t ever in my wildest dreams believe that I could master any technical issue and I’ve built a website all on my own! Oh and I finally let a photographer take photographs of me. Big step. I barely allowed photos on my wedding day!

What are the biggest transformations you’ve seen in yourself?

I tell people what I do with confidence now and I’m detached from their opinion of me. That was a huge stumbling block in the past and only ever rated myself based on the approval or apparent acceptance of others. 

I consider every step I take in the direction of my goal as an achievement as opposed to an insignificant drop in the ocean which was would leave me in overwhelm in the past. I’ve learned the power of mindset and seen its results. I share so much more, see and read so much more, listen so much better and communicate on a more genuine level. I’ve stepped back from ‘over protecting’ our vulnerable daughter and allowed her grow and make grown-up plans for herself - and the world didn’t fall apart.

I’ve shown my daughters that I’m backing myself and creating a life outside the world they’ve always known me and they are so proud and supportive of me. They in turn are gaining strength from that and are making huge changes in their own lives. Using all positive mentoring and tools 

I’ve been learning from and watching examples in Louise, my husband approached a possible life-altering and difficult situation with enormous positivity and enthusiasm and turned it right on its head! He too is doing amazing things in his life I would not have encouraged him to do if i had not changed my outlook from fear based to opportunity. When I started out as a Desire Map facilitator I saw it as something positive to do and share. At that point I only had my friends and relations in mind. I now see that it’s much more than that and I have a business plan for 2017 which I hope will bring my workshops / retreats to my target group as a hotel/spa package. I have plans for ‘Menopower’ ‘UpStarts’ ‘UpWords’ and ‘UpRise’ packages incorporating Desire Mapping and if it’s received as well within the industry as it is with the women I’ve been chatting with, it should do well.

I could go on forever but the other thing I learned over the year is that time doesn’t make itself. There is never a ‘right’ time - the yearning of the procrastinator and we will always make time for whatever we need or want to do. In fact I believe we just LIVE IT and don’t even think about whether there is time or not.  

What realisations / mindset shifts have changed things the most for you?  

The biggest realisation by a mile came when Louise asked me if I was running a hobby or a business. I had a hobby mindset up until that point, believing that the people I know would build my business. I’m clear now that they won’t. They’re not my clients and whilst I’ll happily share insights etc as a friend, I now have a much more outward looking approach. Bigger and Bolder and with greater confidence.

Think back to this time last year - what limiting belief/s did you have that you don’t have anymore?

That I had no qualifications so who was I to be any kind of workshop facilitator? That I couldn’t ask for the (financial) investment I wanted and needed in myself, taking from the family funds. That I couldn’t develop or learn the skills necessary to support myself and my business. That I could be at a dinner party and answer my companion’s question ‘nd what do you do?” without referring to my girls in the first five seconds. As a result, I’ve had the amazing scenario where the entire group of women (and some men) end up sharing their story or enthusiasm for my workshops. That I can spend the day working away on my own plans and not be consumed with guilt for not shopping/cooking/cleaning/ferrying around my very grateful but expectant dependants.

What are your three top business tips for highly-motivated entrepreneurs like you, who are where you were and feeling stuck in their business and want to move forward?  

  1. Invest in themselves by signing up to a mentor like Louise.

  2. Read, read, read. Explore and Research.

  3. Find a group or community they resonate with and share support. Anchoring and Immersing themselves here on particularly ‘wobbly’ days can be a lifesaver.

What does a day in your life and business feel like now in comparison to before you started coaching?  

A business day in the past for me was following a to-do list and meeting as many as possible by the end of the day (often up to 10 O’clock at night in order to accommodate other calls on my time). Now I have built a structure and also taken Louise’s lead in setting up a schedule based on the best times of the day/days of the week for most effectiveness. I use Louise’s ABC priority scheduling technique also. I see my intentions, goals and plans as a priority and no longer ‘fit them in when I get a chance’. I fit in exercise, meditation and journaling as an essential part of the day and I view taking a nap or rest if I’m tired as fuel for a healthy mind and body. Most importantly for me, I have my own beautiful space where I have everything I need at hand. It’s my sanctuary and mostly I’m not disturbed there. I not just work smarter - I live smarter!  

What were your concerns / reservations before signing up for 1:1 Coaching with Louise? Whether I could justify the investment.

What would you say to that person with those reservations now? In my case I’d never been to college. Our girls had each had opportunities for 3rd level education and we invested in whatever courses they wanted regardless of where or how much. Having committed myself to their care for the first twenty plus years of their lives and supported my husband through his years as a self-employed entrepreneur, it became my turn. The benefits to our whole family has been immeasurable. As I have learned so much and been guided so wisely and intuitively through this programme, my family has risen too, taking steps to achieve their own sense of purpose and gaining greater independence and faith in themselves. They also see me quite differently too and it’s a truly satisfying experience to see their pride in me for who I am and what I’m doing and not just as their mom - although in fairness, they’ve always shown appreciation for that too. So my message would be to take this opportunity. Ask for the support you need in the knowledge that it’s not just for yourself. As you rise, everyone around you benefits too.

Struggling With Putting Yourself Out There?

Struggling With Putting Yourself Out There?

When you’re running a business in this big busy space called the internet, being visible is a really key way to get seen as an expert and attract the clients you love.

But I know that being ‘visible’ isn’t always easy.

I know from coaching hundreds of online business owners that there are so many blocks and fears that come up around showing up online.

The question ‘Who am I to do this?’ is one I come across time and time again.

If that’s something that sounds familiar to you, or if putting yourself out there is feeling really terrifying right now, I wanted to share with you some key reminders today to help you SHOW UP!

  1. You have a unique set of skills, gifts, talents, messages and personality that only YOU have. There a tons of coaches, copywriters, designers, nutritionists and every other type of business owner in the world - but people work with you for YOU. Clients will be drawn to your work because of HOW you share it, and WHO you are, and WHY you do what you do.

  2. You will be doing a disservice to people that really need you if you don't share your gifts! The world is crying out for your support - you’re a skilled business owner and there are people out there looking for you. Contrary to point #1, it’s not about ‘YOU’ but the people who need your help.

  3. Your ideal clients are out there looking for exactly what you have to offer, make it easy for them to find you! The internet is overloaded with information, so people really want an invitation AND for it to be easy to work with you. Go to them, provide value, give them the opportunity, send an invitation, let it be easy.

  4. There’s method in the madness. As a general rule, our prospects need to hear from us up to 21 times (!!) before they decide to buy from us, so getting visible consistently is key!

  5. Make sure you go in with value and you'll always feel helpful and non-salesy! Leading with value and providing consistent support will help to shift you from selling to serving.

  6. We need you! Again, it’s pretty clear that the world is due a shift and a lift of lightworkers, nurturers and female business owners! We need you to rise, sister.

  7. Start with where you are - don't worry about doing it all once. Get comfortable with one thing, like posting on Facebook or Instagram, then incorporate the next!

  8. Your community will show up when you do! Commit to serving, providing value, and offering an incredible service, and you’ll never be ‘hustling’ for clients again.

I can't wait to watch your email list build, your community blossom and your sales boom!  

All love,

Louise x

P.S. In our Passion to Prosperity 2-day event, 3 month group programme & online members site, I combine deep transformational mindset work with practical business training because I wholeheartedly believe that to be successful in business you need in-depth support in both of these areas. If you’re an online coach or service-based professional and are ready to stop hustling in business and secure consistent clients and income, this is for you.

Client Story - From Anxious and Unhappy To Thriving Business Mumpreneur & 8k Months!

Client Story - From Anxious and Unhappy To Thriving Business Mumpreneur & 8k Months!

Here at Louise George HQ, I LOVE celebrating the wins my clients experience in their lives and businesses.

I truly believe that every sentient being should enjoy a life of freedom and fulfilment, and there’s nothing that fills my heart more than when my work as a success coach has a part to play in that for my clients.  

This week I’m celebrating my incredible client Nancy Florence. Here’s a little insight into our work together and how much she’s thriving in her life and business today!

What’s your name? Nancy Florence 

What do you do? Success Coach for New Online Mumpreneurs and Coaches

How long have you been in business? I started my Psychotherapy practice 5 years and ago and transitioned into coaching a year ago. 

What do you LOVE about the work you do? I LOVE seeing women take a stand for their dream and take fierce action to make it happen. My favourite part is when my clients call me to celebrate their first sales. To me, it’s the best feeling in the world.

Where was your business at before 1:1 Coaching with Louise? When I first hired Louise 18 months ago, I was running an Online Property Business alongside my Psychotherapy Practice. I wasn’t happy in my property business and she helped me realise it was not in my Zone of Genius...coaching was. 

Where is your business at now in comparison? Wow! Where do I start? Let’s just say that I jump out of bed every morning to be of service to the world. Now I ONLY do the work that truly lights me up, working with high-end clients 1-1 and running gorgeous workshops and retreats. I created the Laptop Lifestyle that was only a dream not too long ago. I created gorgeous high-end clients on both sides of the pond and I get to make a positive difference in the world on a much bigger scale. I am well on track to achieve my first 6-figure year and I don’t feel overwhelmed anymore. I learned how to work in a way that feels good to me and that allows me to enjoy long weekends with my family.

What are the big breakthroughs you’ve experienced this year? This year has been amazing so far. I decided to go for Extraordinary in 2017 and I am already planning gorgeous trips to LA, France and Togo (Africa). I celebrated the first year anniversary of the Fierce Mum Bosses community and I launched my signature Modern Mums Programme.  

What are the biggest transformations you’ve seen in yourself? I have become the true Queen of Nancy’s world. Now I know my worth and I am clear on my desires. I don’t live in a constant state of anxiety anymore. In fact I feel good everyday...for the most part of everyday which is a huge transformation for me. I am a much better mother and partner for it. 

What realisations / mindset shifts have changed things the most for you? The biggest mindset shift for me is that I understand now that I am the Creator of my Reality. Simple as that.

Think back to this time last year - what limiting belief/s did you have that you don’t have anymore? Last year I still believed that Life was hard, that Business was hard and I had a story about working hard and struggling to achieve what I wanted. Also I did not really believe in myself which translated in a lot of nervousness during sales calls.

Let’s celebrate - what are your biggest business WINS this year? List em’ all loud and proud!

Whoohoo! So my biggest wins so far this year are:

  • I enrolled gorgeous high-end clients in Europe and America into my programmes and they’ve already created incredible results in their business and lives.

  • I launched my best programme so far: ‘The Modern Mum Programme’ designed to teach busy mums how to thrive both at work and at home.

  • I took up dancing again at the Pineapple Studio in Covent Garden. YEAH!!!!

  • I have already planned incredible family holidays in Los Angeles, France and Togo (Africa) 

  • I achieved my first 8k month! 

What are your three top business tips for highly-motivated entrepreneurs like you, who are where you were and feeling stuck in their business and want to move forward?

1 - Give yourself permission to create the business of your dreams and only do the work you love. That’s where your joy and your money are.

2 - Get a Coach or a Mentor who knows how to help you get from A to B

3 - Make ‘Feeling Good’ your top priority and you will be successful at home and in your business.

What does a day in your life and business feel like now in comparison to before you started coaching? I was in Hell. Now I’m in Heaven. Best way I can explain it. And it’s no exaggeration.

What were your concerns / reservations before signing up for 1:1 Coaching with Louise? None. I knew I needed coaching and it just felt like the right decision for me and my business.

What would you say to that person with those reservations now? If you were an Athlete, a CEO or a Hollywood Actor you would not dream of reaching excellence without a Coach. Why should it be different for Business Owners. If you want to go for Extraordinary this year...make hiring a Coach your first and most important hire.

What are your Core Desired Feelings? Extraordinary. Divinely Feminine. Like a Crystal.

Here's Why You're Not Fully Booked...

Here's Why You're Not Fully Booked...

This week I’m answering the question I hear from clients’ all the time: ‘Why am I not getting fully booked?’

There are a few reasons why, and I’m going to be sharing these with you over in Soul Fire Sessions this week. But today I wanted to dive into the first reason behind why you’re not fully booked with clients, and that’s:

CLARITY

When we’re unclear, uncertain or confused, so are our minds and so are our actions. Doing anything from a space of uncertainty or a lack of purpose has us spinning our wheels and getting stuck in ‘trial and error’ or hoping for the best. Not the ideal situation when you’re so deeply craving the absolute opposite.

Getting clear on these three areas of your business will really help you to reduce the overwhelm and to start feeling really focused and moving towards what you want, every day.

  1. You need to know what you want.

There’s SO much to do in business right? The marketing, and the writing, and the scheduling, and the planning, and the accounts and the networking and THEN the actual work you started a business to do! So it’s really easy to get caught up in ‘busy work’ and doing all the things you ‘should’ be doing, which sooner or later leads to burnout.

When you get CLEAR on what you want and where you’re heading however, you can get rid of all the things that are simply ‘distractions’ in your business and start focusing on money making activities.

Because let’s face it: when you’re not bring in money to your business, you just have an expensive hobby.

So what are your goals for the next month, week, day, hour? What do you want to achieve in your business over the next 90 days? Then take the required steps each day to work towards them.

Cut out the things that aren’t moving you towards those goals. And finally the overwhelm will clear and the clients will come.

    2. You need to know who you want to attract

You’ve heard it time and time again in the online world, but getting clear on who your ideal client is is key. When you know who you’re talking to, it can help to guide everything you do.

Choose one person you’ve loved working with or would love to work with, and get really clear on what they’re looking for and how you can provide that. When you picture that person and focus on them through all the actions you take, your ideal clients will start to recognise themselves in your work, and they’ll start to know you’re exactly the woman they’ve been looking for.

      3. You need to get clear on the RESULTS you provide

With our loaded online world, we’re all bombarded with information all the time. This means that we no longer care about what information we’ll receive when we invest in a service, but about what RESULT that will give us. What can people expect to be/do/have after working with you?

Figure out what problem your ideal client has, and then let them know how you solve it. Once you’re clear on that, your clients will hear that you’re speaking directly to them and that they have to have you on their team.

Naturally, there are lots of pieces to the puzzle of a successful business, and clarity is just the beginning. But business doesn’t have to be quite as complicated as we make it out to be.

Stop trying to be everything to everyone, or doing things like everyone else does. Get clear on where you’re heading, who you’re for, and what problem you solve, and stay true to who you are. The people that want to work with you will be drawn to YOU.

It’s as simple, or as difficult as that. You decide.

Deep Gratitude, Transition & Conscious Creation

Deep Gratitude, Transition & Conscious Creation

The beginning of 2017 has rocked me to my core, asked me to connect deeply to myself, a higher 'source' and to make space in my heart center for my soul's evolution.

This is my first note to you in a while, after what's been a roller-coaster ride, so far this year.
I am being called to rise even more (I know you feel it too) and with that invitation comes inevitable energy shifts, shadow and light work...

We love you!

For those of you who have dogs in your life- how lucky you are.  For those of you who don’t, I highly recommend spending time with dogs when you can.

How I lost control of my business and 3 key steps that turned it around!

How I lost control of my business and 3 key steps that turned it around!

What's not perfect in your business yet?

I remember a few years ago starting the new year with such enthusiasm and then quickly losing it as I felt the pressure of the end of the month looming and although I remained determined to reach my goals, somewhere in my beliefs were conflicts - that it was actually too hard, that no-one buys in January and I wasn't going to make it... have you ever felt like that?              Perhaps that's where you are now?

I understand the roller-coaster ride of feeling elated one minute and then terrified the next... and yes, that's part of the exhilaration of being a true warrioress entrepreneur, creating our own realities in business and that makes you extraordinary but we also have the ability to control our realities, how we feel about whatever our current situation is and turning it around if needed...

How? ...

WHY Are You Doing This?

WHY Are You Doing This?

Most people who set 'New Years Resolutions' will give up by mid January and that's the only time they set goals and then wait again until next year to start again!

So how can you make sure you stick to your intentions? Well, make sure you follow through with the plan above and timeline your actions.. in my opinion and experience anything not time-lined won't get done. So schedule into your online calendar - that way you can see and edit anywhere you are and have a timeline to follow, to make sure your taking those actions and working towards your goals, every day!

Even more importantly, it helps to know WHY you want the things you do?

WHY are you setting those goals?

'Goals With Soul' To Manifest Your Desires For 2017 & help From Tony Robbins

We're now in the last two days of 2016 and I've been busy planning with my team for the New Year... are you prepared for your success next year?

This is one of my favorite times of year, I love the Christmas break and I also love the high energy and excitement of a fresh page; in my journal, my Desire Map Planner and in business and life. The wonder of what is yet to manifest and the fun of creating it in my mind and co-creating with the universe.

I find the period between Christmas and New Year a wonderful time to sit quietly, reflect, visualize and plan. A time to reconnect with my core desired feelings, currently...
