About You & About Me
Ideally I would:
Be free to express my creativity in a way that allows me to live a life that is purposeful and fulfilling.
Be free of the need to adhere to security and control at the price of my own passions.
Be free from the feelings of guilt every time I consider leaving the steady, safe, 9-5 and dedicate my energy 100% on my dream business.
Be free and start spending more time with my family, travel to the places I've always wanted to, take back the space that has been squeezed out by time constraints, and stop worrying about this constant financial conundrum that actually stops me from earning way more.
This was my mantra and I hope that it will inspire yours - here's to living your ideal life!!
But I'm curious, What would you have written under the title "Ideally I would?"
What if self-doubt rumbles away under your excitement? - How would it feel to trust yourself implicitly? Rather than thinking in terms of 'right and wrong' you listen to the call, respond and apply yourself 100%.
What if you have the skills and knowledge, know how much you can contribute to society with your business, but you don't have the foggiest idea of how to put everything together in a way that expresses your authentic and differentiating message? - How would it feel to express confidently exactly what makes you the expert and 'go to person' in your field in a way that feels authentic and comes from your heart?
What if you worry about the financial impact of owning your own business as opposed to receiving a payslip and you fear you won't get a consistent stream of clients? - How would it feel to get too many clients and have the 'problem' of leveraging your business?
What if you are constantly saying "What if" and nothing changes? - How would it feel if you woke up tomorrow and you didn't have to commute through heavy traffic, compete with the dominant hierarchy of control, come home exhausted, wonder where you will get the energy from to cook dinner and talk with family before you start the same routine the next day!
What would your day really look like?
Might it be a day full of light and space to create, collaborate and contribute?
You are creative, sensitive, dedicated, empathetic, committed to service, consistent in positive action, influential, wise, perceptive and intelligent - well - that's the version of you that you know you can be - if only you got the space - right? So, what is the world missing out on?
Why not make this your default expression that in turn expresses into the business you dream of? Why not make each day a day where you are free to grow and evolve in ways you've never dared to dream?
Stop dreaming and let's do it!!!
But before we do, I have a question - one that I needed to hear back when I started out myself, and it's an important one.....
Are you brave enough to explore the depths of the relationship you have with yourself so that you can let go of what keeps you from the freedom you're dreaming of and forge your business from a respectful, honouring and self-loving space? Are you able to appreciate that the quality of your expression can create and enrich the foundation for a successful and thriving business you can feel proud of; one that will give you the confidence to change your direction and joyfully say goodbye to cell-block 9-5?
If the answer is YES! or even a maybe, click the button below and let's have a chat so that you can go that one step further towards freedom....
The What, Who, Why and How questions you've been waiting for.....
What is Gorgeous Hearts all about and how did 'FFS Let's just do it!' become my core signature programme?
Gorgeous Hearts began life as a self-care blogging site. I was, and still am, passionate about personal growth and it will always be the foundation of all I express and offer.
Gorgeous Hearts is how I see people - from the inside out. Behaviours may not be so gorgeous, but there is always the potential to let go of what causes the anxiety and the consequences of it and allow the heart to impulse all that is expressed and created.
I believe that this foundation of expression guides me in business and puts a stamp of energetic integrity, from the heart and never from a need, on it. First the vibrational quality - then the expression.
FFS Let's just do it' is my signature programme which is a 12 session 1:1 coaching programme tailored towards women who are working a 9-5, but have made the decision to create their own business that will eventually offer them the freedom to live the life they dream of.
From time management, client attraction and your preferred business model to expressing your value, creating compelling stories that create engagement, and a confident voice when you make that all important sales call or speaking gig, this programme explores how you will adapt these into your daily life and is underpinned by a deep inner connection to creativity and confidence that makes the process easy and authentic.
"I work with Female Freedom Seekers stuck in Groundhog Day, and I help them to convert their rich creativity into the thriving business they dream of so they can confidently leave cell-block 9-5"
Let's break that down.....
Female Freedom Seekers (sorry about 'female' but it sounds good and FFS makes me laugh - used that phrase a lot when I was starting my business so hope it resonates)
You seek freedom - what does that freedom look like to you?
For me it meant:
Some more to consider....
What is Groundhog Day?
I imagine you've seen the film (if you haven't go and watch it right now it's the best film of the 90's!) and you know that the protagonist had to wake up to the same scene and repeat the same mistakes over and over until he finally got it - he had to become a more loving person and appreciate his life.
The film makes you laugh, but reality isn't far off and it can be far from a laughing matter. We can often feel 'stuck' in repetitive patterns and situations, feel a victim of them even, but the truth is, we always have a choice. I support you to make the choices that feel empowering and the decisions that will create a well planned venture so you can live that freedom you're searching for.
A thriving business....
Whatever your definition of freedom, be it financial or existential, your business needs to align to first. That's why my programme covers the definition of freedom thoroughly. Your business model will need to adapt to that definition and then, every step thereafter will fall into place like a toddler jigsaw puzzle.
Finding who your client is, crafting a message that they cannot ignore or refuse, expressing your heart with all the integrity and care that it holds, especially in sales calls, nurturing your relationships and giving unconditionally are all ingredients that make a pretty tasty business soup. A Thriving business is up to you - you are the expression, the consistent nurturer and the expert who can support your client. I will help you to uncover it and let it shine.
Leaving cell-block 9-5....
OK, this may be a slight exaggeration for some of you reading this, but for me it isn't. I felt like my life was a fog. All my money disappeared on material trappings that I didn't get time to enjoy very often. My time was never my time - it belonged to someone else. I felt like a prisoner.
Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate my 9-5 years. There were good times, excitement, team work, funny banter and a common goal, but my values weren't aligning with those of the organisation I worked for so I had a choice to move somewhere else and begin a new process, or do something I'd been contemplating for some time. As a coach, it made sense for me to create my own business and that's what I did!
Because it feels authentic and part of who I am and what I'm here to do - it feels purposeful!
I'm sure this is something that you resonate with too, but it's important that each of us discover the 'Why' behind all of our choices and decisions. That's something that I wouldn't lightly skip over, if you miss that out, it's tantamount to building a house with no damp course - something that happens a lot in Spain which is why moldy walls are common in the winter.
Yes, figuring out your big 'Why' is part of the foundations and will also be important as you go forward - when you need that bit of motivation to continue.
What makes working with me any different to working with any other business coach out there?
A great question and glad you've asked it!
I am what makes it different - that's what will make you're business different too. No matter how many stalls are selling fruit and veggies, I will always go to the same one because the lady who serves me is funny, kind, energetic and helpful - she has really great produce too so that's just as important.
If you're looking for something more tangible, I get it! I mean you need to know that what I offer and how I offer it is right for you, so here goes....

“Your business is an expression of yourself - it's personal and it's easy to become very attached to what you want to express, however, your expression has a purpose to serve you AND others. Don't forget that the hero of the story is the client and your business needs to solve a problem that they have. Exploring who your client is, why they might need you and how you will serve them, is a very important consideration because it is the raison d'etre of your business"
