AWESOME PEOPLE DOING AWESOME THINGS
While I often share what I'm up to, doing, making and creating, I don't often share (with you here) what my clients are up to, doing, making and creating - and so today I decided heck let's change that, because they're up to some pretty awesome stuff too.
So here's what (some) of the people I'm working with are creating right now...
After living in Thailand and her love for food, when she moved back in the UK she created a passion project - The Tiniest Thai Supperclubs from her home in London (she's since held them in various locations in others homes too).
In April last year she had a wake up call, realising, slowly, over the course of around ten years, she'd gained just over 40 pounds. (Using Rachel's words not mine), she found herself miserable and unhappy in her own skin, sometimes struggling to breathe when she bent down - yet all the while putting a brave face on it and still pretending to others she was 'fine' and happy just as she was.
That wake up call led her to creating what she's currently (and very passionately) working on today - The Tiniest Thai Diet, her Thai inspired weight loss programme that led her to losing each and every one of those extra pounds over the last year - and which has also helped dozens of other women since do the same.
NICOLA RAE-WICKHAM // A LIFE MORE INSPIRED
After starting her own self development journey - which began with Nicola lacking self confidence, believing she had any control over her life and believing dreams were just that, dreams - she found herself as a woman on a mission making (a whole lotta good) shit happen.
For example, last year she left her full time job to become a full time Life Coach, and yet she hasn't 'just' been coaching 1:1 since. She also launched her own inspirational online shop (which includes her best selling and previously sold out Affirmation Cards), her Affirmation Journaling Challenge and most recently, The Dream and Do Club - a place where she guides women to making any dream that have come true.
SHEENA BOUNSANGA // MINDFULOLOGY
After a number of years working with a whole range of different people, doing a whole range of different things - mindfulness, reflexology, reiki - Sheena found her true passion and calling bringing Mindfulness to Kids and being an advocate for their mental health and wellbeing.
Due the the demand it led her to creating her first online programme - Mindfulology - which helps more people bring mindfulness to even more kids. As well as parents going through her programme to bring more mindfulness into their family home and people who want to start adding Mindful Kids Classes to their own business going through it, her Mindfulology programme is also being used by teachers and rolled out in schools across Canada.
While in (full time) college Lindsey started not just one or two but THREE businesses - as you, or wait, Lindsey does.
She has a clothing range inspired by living fearlessly and authentically everyday (and while I'm here, I'm gunna take the opportunity to shamelessly plug the 'Love Fearlessly' tee I designed for her range), her co-hosted podcast - Nourishing Real Talk for those who are tired of doing 'business as usual', and for her main (and beautiful) gig, she's a branding and web designer helping her clients create fresh design that sets them apart (and doesn't look like anything else in their industry).
JO MACDONALD // LOVING LIFE AFTER FORTY
After raising three (not so little anymore) kids, Jo trained as a Life Coach, coaching women over forty (purposefully) decide... What next? And consciously create a beautiful life in the next chapter of theirs.
Since, given Jo's love of both reading and writing books - her first of many more to come is published here - she's begun helping women who have wanted to write their own book, actually write their book, so finally they can hold it in their hands (instead of just their heads).
She's also recently become the Editor and creator of her own online magazine - Loving Life After Forty - dedicated to women (over forty, name give that away already?! ;) who want more passion, pleasure and purpose in their lives.
Quite simply, Kristin takes the most cool and awasome photos of entrepreneurs and business owners who want... The coolest and most awesome photos they can use to rock their biz.
Based in New Hampshire, US, she matches the style of your shoot to your personal brand (so they're uniquely you, instead of some 'nice' photo 'just like everyone else's), which also means you either get to shoot in her seriously cool studio, or one of a stack of secret locations she has stored up her sleeve that match your personal vibe.
Oh, and she makes sure everyone has an equally cool and beautiful (or in her words - rad) experience to match, ensuring everyone has a personalised wardrobe and styling consult before beginning, and a full pamper experience with hair and make up stylists on hand.
Kristin's currently have a big 'ol website makeover, however in the meantime you'll find her over on Instagram here.
Michelle has two great big passions... Organising and travelling - ok, and decluttering all the junk in our lives (take that as you will) we don't need and is weighing us down, but we'll file that under organising... - which meant there was only one thing for it, create a super cool range of planners, journals and organisers for fellow wanderlustering hearts.
Julia's about three things - Freedom, Fitness, and (most definitely) FUN. However around eight years ago when she'd just left college, she found herself a little overweight and wanting to do something about it... And Julia being Julia, she did - while also creating one (very) successful business in the process, #DoubleWin.
For the last few years Julia's been helping more and more people from every walk of life become fitter and healthier through the fitness challenges she runs, as well as helping others start their own (freedom filled) fitness businesses in the process .
Right now she's creating even more cool stuff for her tribe, like her library full of free downloads for anyone who's wanting to kickstart their own healthier lifestyle, as well as her first Body Love book (coming soon).
