The Energised Entrepreneur

a 12-week programME to empower you with greater confidence, clarity and energy so that you can achieve unstoppable momentum within your business.

This is a message for all ambitious entrepreneurs with a big vision for what they want to create…

The real key to unlocking your potential and achieving unstoppable success within your business starts with how you manage your ENERGY.

When you are passionate about the work that you do and eager to share your ideas with the world, it can be so easy to get caught up in the hustle.

But here is why the hustle on its own never works:

The growth of your business relies on YOU as the founder to show up as the empowered and energised CEO rather than the burnt-out employee.

No matter how great your concept, branding, marketing or sales strategy…..a business needs a LEADER who can lead with confidence and clarity.

Whilst you may think that overwhelm and exhaustion are necessary parts of entrepreneurship, I’m here to tell you that this doesn’t need to be the case….

Success is not the product of working harder but of working smarter and for a business to truly thrive, it requires its founder to thrive too.

Tell me, does this sound familiar?

  • You feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and unenthusiastic about the day because you’re not managing and balancing your energy.

  • You manage to tick off a few items from your never-ending to-do list but never feel the satisfaction of completing tasks because you never take time to reflect and celebrate your achievements.

  • You’re putting so much pressure on yourself to succeed but always end up feeling like you’re falling short because you’re not setting effective goals for yourself.

  • You feel constantly busy without feeling like you’re getting anything done because you’re not clear on what’s really important.

  • Your work and personal lives are merging into one, so you don’t have time or energy for friends, family, or hobbies because you’re not structuring your day.

  • You’re working long hours and constantly feeling stressed out because you feel guilty and scared about slowing down.

If so, then The Energised Entrepreneur will help you create MORE ENERGY, MORE FOCUS, and MORE FUN as you take your business to the next level.

THE ENERGISED ENTREPRENEUR is a  12-week mindful productivity programme that will help you swap overwhelm, procrastination and perfectionism for confidence, clarity and energy so you can create unstoppable success in your business, take care of your own needs, and live a fulfilling life.

Step off the road to burn out because there is another way to create the success you want.

THE ENERGISED ENTREPRENEUR is all about transitioning from overstretched and stressed out to focused and fearless founder so you can have more energy for the things that matter to you.

You are not alone in this. I’ve been there too.

I thought that if I just worked harder and pushed myself more, everything would be okay and that I would achieve the success I wanted in my business. To the outside world, it looked like everything was great but inside I felt overwhelmed, anxious and like I was never good enough.

I know how scary it can feel to take your foot off the pedal - how you think that if you slow down or stop, you’ll never get going again. But let me tell you a secret...that’s just not how it works! I was struggling through every day and everything felt hard until I discovered a new approach which has changed everything for me.

It’s this new approach I’m now passionate about sharing with others.

I created The Energised Entrepreneur programme specifically to help other founders, freelancers, and side-hustlers to learn how to create unstoppable success in their lives and businesses by balancing their energies in tune with their natural rhythms, values, and vision.

Here’s what your life is about to look like:

  • You slide out of bed in the morning the first time your alarm goes off because you’re looking forward to the day and filled with purpose and gratitude.

  • You feel productive and satisfied because you’re completing the tasks that actually matter and acknowledging your successes.

  • You know what you need to do and have the motivation and focus to do it and you’re making it happen with confidence and resilience.

  • You unapologetically say no to things that don’t serve you because you are clear and connected to your bigger, burning yes inside.

  • You genuinely enjoy the company of friends and family and your own interests because you’re creating and holding space for your needs to be met.

  • You know when it’s time to rest and time to work and you enjoy your downtime guilt-free because you know you have the energy for the things that matter to you.

After being in structured employment (9-5) for nearly 20 years, I changed direction and launched a new business in the UK. I was incredibly excited to take this step but I was finding it hard to structure my days effectively. My work and personal life was merging into one and I wasn’t able to find a balance which was sustaining my energy to move through such a change in my life.

The way I approach my tasks and my weeks has completely changed. I now have structure and am able to balance my whole self, so I have enough energy for my own coaching clients. I came face-to-face with the anxieties I was feeling around having my own business. I was able to looker deeper inwards to understand how I was feeling and how to tackle that negative thinking. I feel much happier, energised and a lot more enthusiastic! As my energy and sense of balance has improved, I feel fully present in my own client sessions and I feel more confident running my own business. I am in a much more positive and healthy place and am ready to get cracking in my 2nd year of business.

Ready to say goodbye to overwhelm and hello to confidence, clarity and more energy?

I only work with entrepreneurs who I know are going to benefit from THE ENERGISED ENTREPRENEUR programme so we’ll make sure that the programme is a good fit for you and the challenges you’re facing and I will personally guide you through the steps you need to take to start making a change RIGHT NOW. Once you’re accepted onto the programme, you’ll get the foundation module delivered the same day to get you into action before the next programme starts on 14th January 2019.

I was feeling completely overwhelmed with lots of new happenings in my life. I had just returned to work after the birth of my son, was moving to a new house and also trying to make time to progress my side business. I have a very supportive family and great friends, but I put a lot of pressure on myself. I constantly felt insanely busy but yet felt that I was achieving little and felt frustratingly unclear about my goals and values.

In my ’free’ time (when really I felt like I should be doing something off my to-do list) I would find myself idly browsing online for things that I could use or would help in some way. Luckily, before wasting any more time, I found Vix and The Practical Balance. Her approach really appealed to me and I instantly felt affinity with her. I immediately felt comfortable talking to Vix; she seemed so calm, relaxed and really listened to what I had to say.

I have gained much more clarity on my priorities and I can now clearly articulate my values and have created actionable statements related to these. All of this has given me much more peace of mind and is instilling a sense of purpose and confidence. Although I am still busy, I feel much more fulfilled and like I have more control over my life and what I choose to do. I am also learning a lot more about myself, what balance means for me and how I go about developing this.

I feel so much more hopeful that I can find a balance that is right for me and enjoy rather than worry about the experience of doing so. Working with Vix has had a massive impact on me and I feel like a stronger person for it. This was brought to light recently when I experienced an unexpected grievance and although it has left me with feelings of extreme sadness, my work with Vix has allowed me to also take a different perspective. I have reignited my belief in intuition and things working out for a reason.

I feel part of a community and that the feelings I have are indeed shared by others!

I’m already so busy. Will I have time to do the work?

I hear you! I’ve designed the programme to reduce overwhelm not to add to your to-do list. Each module comes in manageable, bite-sized bits that you can work through at your own pace each week. You’ll have lifetime access to the material so you can use it any time and we’ll have lighter weeks at various points throughout the programme to allow you to consolidate your work or go deeper.

I’m worried about getting lost in a big group.

We’re keeping the group small so you will be able to get to know everyone else and so I can make sure you are all getting the attention and support you need to get the most out of the programme. You’ll have access to me via the Facebook group for any questions throughout the week. If you want even more support, ask me about upgrading to the VIP package!

What if I can’t make the group calls?

All the group calls will be recorded so you can watch them back whenever you like. You’ll be able to submit questions before the call so I can directly support you, even if you can’t join us live.

I’m not sure I can afford a coach right now.

I want you to imagine that you own a factory making widgets. You have a very special machine that makes the widgets. This machine is one of a kind. You can’t buy spare parts for this machine. It’s the only machine that can make the widgets you need for your business. How would you treat it? How much would you invest its care and upkeep? If you hadn’t guessed already, that machine is you.

You are your business’ most important asset. So, I think the questions is really can you afford not to invest in yourself? Your business can’t thrive if you aren’t.

What would you say are the benefits of working with a coach?

Coaching can be a transformational process – I can genuinely say it has changed my life and I still work with not one but two coaches because I find it so beneficial to my life.

One of the most important benefits for me and my clients is structure. A coach will be able to give you a structure to follow. There is so much information out there in books and on the internet and people will often say they can find all of the information they want online for free. However, do you believe the sources? Are you overwhelmed? Do you know where to start?

A coach will be giving you tried-and-tested ways to achieve your goals, in the right order and in a system where they all work together and support one another. Then there’s a fresh perspective – when you are struggling and it’s all too hard, a coach will offer objective input and brainstorm strategies that help you move forward. Often, we are too close to our own blocks and cannot always see a solution. A kind heart and different pair of eyes can make a huge difference.

You get your very own cheerleader. Your coach is someone who reminds you of how far you’ve come and when you are feeling flat, says “You can do this! I believe in you.” Often, we are too focussed on what more we have to do, rather than how much we have already achieved. They remind you of what your dreams are and encourage you to keep taking those steps forward. I want nothing more, as your coach, than for you to succeed in making yourself happy. It is incredibly inspiring for any coach to witness their clients committing wholeheartedly to what’s important to them. I live for these moments and it makes my work worthwhile. I’ve been moved to tears numerous times upon reading an email from an excited client, as they update me on their progress. There’s nothing more heartwarming or thrilling for a coach to receive.

And finally, there’s that accountability. Making these changes can be hard – there are times you are not going to want to do the thing that’s good for. Trust me, knowing that someone is going to be checking in on you is motivating. It is much easier to let yourself off when no-one is watching, rather than having to admit to your coach that you didn’t do something. I have so much compassion for my clients but I’m also prepared to call you on your bull****, in the nicest possible way when you need it.

What does balance look like?

This is a question I get asked a lot. And the answer is it will look a little bit different for everyone. There is no set formula. In fact, your own sense of balance will change throughout the day, the month, the year and your life in line with those natural cycles I talked about earlier. What’s important is that you feel that you are getting the right balance of challenge and comfort to achieve your dreams. We don’t want to be overwhelmed and overstimulated, nor do we want to be lethargic and bored. I’ll teach you how to figure out what works for you. To look at your habits and ask whether this is still serving you or not. Because in that moment, between stimulus and response, we have choice and power.

I am much clearer on where the focus of my activity should be this year - and where I can afford to relax a little. Aside from the practical actions, Vix helped me realise where personally I need to make some changes so that my health and career can both flourish this year.

I had a great experience with The Practical Balance! It helped me understand where I want to go, and identify some of the roadblocks in my way. I have been feeling really stressed and overwhelmed with work and life, and sitting down to map out some of my goals and priorities with a coach was increidbly enlightening. I was able to work through my personal and professional goals and create a practical plan weekly to get to where I want to be. I really loved it!
