You sit at the very heart of your business. You are your business. So if your thinking is off-course for whatever reason, your business will be sailing off-course too!
You are a super complicated individual to make sense of. You will have been born into a family of origin, with it's own family dynamic and dramas going on. As a baby entering this world and the child that has to later survive in it, you will have twisted yourself into all sorts of contortions of being to survive and thrive. This self-contortion is an adapted-you and not your authentic-you.
Aspire helps you wake-up from your adaptations and encourages you to speak in your own words from your truest self that you were magnificently born to be.
"out of the silence you can make a promise it will kill you to break, that way you'll find what is real and what is not". - David Whyte
Over thirty years ago I started recognising the trauma in the individual that formed an important part of why their business wasn't working. I studied neuro linguistic programming to take apart the behaviour patterns, but this only gave me a small slice of sense making. I also studied psychotherapy using transactional analysis (TA) in a clinical and business setting to study what was going on, in particular within the entrepreneurial psyche.
Ten years later, I attended to Durham University studying entrepreneurship with a specialist interest in childhood development and its impact upon our entrepreneurial decision making. The research turned up some staggering realisations and won me an MA in Entrepreneurship and the Durham University Dissertation of The Year Award, for breaking into a new field of entrepreneurial personality research. This is when everything started making more sense and falling into place and where the business interventions I supported people to achieve, put them at the centre of the problem, solution and outcomes.
Yes, it's a different approach, yes it's a powerful approach, yes it's a sustainable and life transformative approach.
It's an absolute joy working in collaboration with the Institute of Leadership & Management to have ASPIRE approved and accredited at L5 with them. I am now able to offer credible professional qualifications to women who are prepared to really get to the heart of their entrepreneurial DNA, take back control of their self-belief and lives. This sets in motion a business based on true heart based values, purpose, passion and genuine love based legacies." - Cheryl Bass

This programme will help you develop a deeper level of self-awareness of you and how and why you do the things you do, in the way that you do in your business.
Together we will start diluting everything that has held you back from being the very best version of you in business. This could include reprogramming any limiting beliefs, self sabotages or negative ways of thinking and being.
I will be helping you grow up again by walking you through your life story, childhood development experiences and unpacking how you might be running outdated ways of being, thinking, feeling.
You quickly start releasing powerful and potent entrepreneurial talent because everything which could be having a negative impact on how you do business is re-programmed to prepare you and your mind for manifesting what you desire in your life and business.
Suddenly you start noticing how much more joyful you are becoming. Together we start maneuvering you towards thinking about your potential, your dreams, your aspirations. After all, so as you think, you become.
You start noticing you have more energy. This happens when you start removing your thinking and feeling blockages. Your body will feel more relaxed and more in tune with your inner joy.
You might even start losing the weight you have been hanging onto. Sometimes when we store a very negative picture of ourselves, situations we have found ourselves in, trauma or hungry ghosts, we can feel a hole in our bellies that somehow we think we can fill with food. As the hole fills up with self-love, we can find that we no longer need to feed the hungry ghosts with anymore.
You start feeling you and your life is in-flow. In-flow means that we get that feeling that we are who we always wanted to become and are doing what we always desired to be doing.
Your optimism returns and you can see a really positive way forward. You start putting plans in place to realise your dreams, you start building your career, your future investments and a life you always wished for but never though you deserved.
This programme has been designed to help you transform and grow, whether you are starting-up, pivoting, getting your products and services positioned for marketing online or scaling-up locally,nationally or internationally.
Week-by-week I will be walking you a process of growing up a business from inception to how to launch celebrity brands. You will quickly get to grips with your marketplace and learn how to position what you do. This will supercharge how you take your products to market and how you reap your financial rewards.
You will start to understand how your numbers work and how they need to work to build profit. I work with you in simple but powerful ways. There will be no more tears or terror when it come to your numbers. They will be replaced with grounded knowledge of how to make your numbers work for you in your business.
My aim is that when you finish the programme that you will have:
- Thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience of partaking in the delivery of ASPIRE and have built beautiful relationships and collaboration opportunities with the other entrepreneurs.
- You business starts booming and what started as an idea you were so excited to make a reality, has turned into a business opportunity that offers you joy, contentment, time and financial freedom.
- You will have obtained professional qualifications and really benefited from using all of the Institute of Leadership & Management online tools and resources and have participated in further online learning with them.
- You really got to grips with building your workable and sustainable business model going forward with my help and that of your Accountability Buddy
- You have an ongoing plan for transformational change, leave clearly knowing what you need to do and how you are going to either start-up or scale-up your business.
- You continue to have at your disposal a host of entrepreneurial and business building tools and techniques you have learnt from taking part in the programme you have the confidence to use ongoing in any business you decide to develop in the future.
- Your vision and values continue to drive your business. You move forward with clarity and an understanding of joining up your dots to start making your business a business you fall in love with that's profitable and adds amazing value to your life.
This programme has been designed for both.
As we start right at the beginning of aligning you with the development of your business, it really does offer you the opportunity to press the refresh button and start again - no matter which stage you are at thinking about or actually running yours or someone else's business.
