How A Shameful Experience Changed My Life

I remember when I was a single parent and not able to pay my bills. I will never forget making the decision to apply for housing benefits. Walking into that office and filling out the paperwork was the most humiliating and humbling experience. I’d had a job since I was 14 and supported myself fully since I was 19 so never in my wildest dreams imagined there would be a time in my life that I’d need help from the government.

This was the first of many lessons I was to start learning around asking for help.

It turned out that I only needed to claim benefits for about 6 months to get me back on my feet and I justified receiving the financial support having paid tax for 20 years. I’d paid into a system that was able to support me when I needed it.

It was my first experience of learning to receive. It was my first experience of being fully vulnerable and honest around what was going on for me. Allowing myself to receive support and eventually moving from the shame of that to knowing I was deserving of it was a pivotal, life changing moment.

At this time I was was trying to launch a new business – I was creating artwork (which became an extensive product range) featuring words of affirmation. I was so inspired to help people as I had recently undergone a period of MASSIVE transformation. I’d spent the last 3 years deeply focussed on my mental and emotional healing. My self worth, self belief and self esteem was blossoming – it was a miracle to me that we could change our experience of ourselves and our lives so I simply had to share that with others.

Have you ever launched a business? Whether you have or not, you’ll know it can be a lonely ‘ole place. It’s a personal growth journey in it’s own right as you are challenged every day to believe in yourself, charge your worth, stay fiercely connected to your ‘why’ and hold the faith. Mind you, you don’t need to run a business to have those challenges every day, right!?

Despite being so transformed within myself and so excited to inspire others to what was possible for them too, being alone with that wasn’t easy.

It was really hard to motivate myself, alone, every single day.

I didn’t have a community of people around me who ‘spoke my language’ or fully understood the depth of my commitment to my relationship to myself and the importance of keeping my mindset in a high vibrational place. I also didn’t have people around me to support my vision for my business and so it was a hard slog.

I’d done massive transformational work and then I was left to fend for myself.

I needed support.

Can you relate at all?

I was just coming to the end of needing housing benefits so while I was getting back on my feet, I was FAR from flush with cash! BUT, I had learned the power of asking for help and receiving support. The benefits I received did way more than help me pay my rent. Asking for help and receiving support connected me to my value and worth and from there, anything is possible.

An invitation was proposed to me that I join a group coaching programme that supported entrepreneurial women. It was the support I knew I needed.

It was a huge investment and yet I knew that without it, I wouldn’t continue to thrive.

It was SUCH a high vibe, cool online space to hang out and the daily interaction with other women was GAME CHANGING for me. The coaching I received is the reason why my business grew and is still here, growing and evolving and allowing me to fulfil my purpose.

Without this daily touchstone and monthly coaching support, my business would have failed. I know that without any doubt. Oh, and I was able to afford it because with the support and coaching I started to make proper money. That’s what happens – I see it all the time.

I have created group programmes of many sizes, shapes and formats over the years with great success and I always LOVE witnessing women come together, support each other and build friendships who previously didn’t really trust other women.

My group programmes have always been small in number with a higher investment.

I have seen a need in The School of Self Love community for group support at a lower investment. So I have created the EVOLUTION Membership which is just £33 per month if you join NOW as a Founding Member.

This is not a low vibe, self helpy, victim space. This is a space to MAKE YOUR DREAMS HAPPEN!

You will be lifted high by other women. They will be cheering you on and you will be doing the same for them.

I will be your biggest cheer leader – willing you to be the best version of you and helping you to identify along the way what could be holding you back. I’ll shine a light on anything stopping you creating the year you want for yourself.
