How To Create A Business Mindset The Fun Way

Have you always wanted to have your own business? Have you tried countless ways of making money but never succeeded? This has been the story of my life since, well, forever it feels like!

A couple of years ago I was tempted to get a copy of a new personal development workbook by a craaaazy Australian lady who went by the name Goddess Leonie. It was a beautifully illustrated workbook – I say “work” but it’s much more of a “play” book –  with lots of personality. I filled it all in (amazing in itself because I never finish anything!) and over the course of the year I realised that many of the things I had written about had actually come to pass, which freaked me out more than a little bit to be honest!

Here is my instagram pic from the beginning of this year adding my work book to my filofax

Anyway, fast forward a bit and I decided that this woman, crazy though she might seem, really knew her stuff and was worth listening to. I had followed her blog and saw her business expand in real time – she shares everything so freely. I knew I wanted to create a business, but I also knew I was going to need a lot of help. I had looked around the internets and seen all manner of business courses, but they all wanted soooo much money, and I couldn’t commit thousands of pounds to what might turn out to be a white elephant.

One of Leonie’s courses promised to share all the details that she had used to create her business, and knowing how generously she gave of herself generally, I figured that this course would be jam packed with useful insights. I took the plunge and joined her Goddess Circle.

It was totally worth the money, the business course was absolutely packed with incredibly useful tips, hints, programmes of use and motivation all packaged in the no bullshit manner that is Leonie.

I took a while to get round to believing that I could follow my dreams and make a business work, but 9 months into the process I now firmly believe that I can do this. Every day I do something that moves my business forward, even if it’s just a tiny step, it is still a step – 9 months of steps can take you a long way!

The Goddess Circle has been rebranded as The Amazing Biz and Life Academy now, which is totally in tune with my wants and needs, I mean, who doesn’t want an amazing life? Leonie shows that it is entirely possible to have both, and a ton of fun in the process.

The rebranding of the site is bringing extra value and even more depth to the business side of things, and this needs to be reflected in the price which is doubling at the end of the week. It will still be a fraction of the cost of many of the other courses out there, even though it offers waaaay more in content! The great thing is though, if you join before the price goes up, and you decide to resubscribe, you stay at the price you originally subscribed at! How cool is that? You get all of her courses (there are loads, not just the business one) plus the yearly workbooks AND membership to the massively supportive academy forum for that one price. I honestly believe it is the best value programme out there.

I cannot recommend this programme to you enough, it has changed my mindset and my life massively, and I know it can do the same for you too. Get in there NOW and grab yourself a bargain I say! Looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

A Gingerbread Family

This week has been another hectic one in the Creatively Paleo family. I’m not entirely sure where the time is going to, but it seems almost incomprehensible that we are already in September!

Of course we don’t have the back to school rush that most families have, and for that I am eternally grateful! The idea of shopping for school shoes gives me the shudders! You may have seen the post about Primal Education a couple of weeks ago, well that is part of a lovely Not Back To School Carnival over at LiveOtherwise. Grab a brew and take some time meandering through all the posts, there are some really lovely stories included, and they might give you some interesting food for thought 🙂

I’ve been working hard on a couple of projects, the first of which I have just launched and am really quite pleased with. It was a proper family collaboration with the children all contributing ideas as well as helping with various technical aspects that my brain had a temporary block with! It’s a free guide to primalizing your family – it takes a gentle and respectful approach, because, in my opinion at least, there is no space for anything else when it comes to such a huge and important change in a child’s diet.

For the guide we’ve been testing out a paleoified gingerbread recipe, and after much tweaking we are really pleased with the result, and have included it as a cute little printable in the guide. We really hope you like it and have fun baking with your children!

Here’s a little graphic that I whipped up in the A Beautiful Mess app (I do so love that app!). If you click on it it will take you to the download cart thingy majiggy!

We’ve been back to meal planning again this last couple of weeks, which definitely makes life much easier. There should  be some new recipes coming up on the site this week too, including a one pot chilli which was a real life saver in the campervan, and a tasty pork recipe with a Polynesian influence!

That’s it for now – don’t forget it’s #PaleoHour between 8 and 9 pm GMT tonight on twitter!
