6 things I learned from starting my own business.

📌 9:00am – 5:00pm quickly becomes 5:00am – 9:00pm

📌 Weekends? What weekends?

📌 Meetings are never “just 15 minutes”

📌 Coffee, coffee, and a bit more coffee.

📌Holidays you are always last to go on the holiday rota.

📌 The owner always gets paid last.

Starting a new business isn’t easy, one day you’re on top of the world, and the next day it’s on top of you.

Your friends and family have no real clue what you’re doing.

If I knew I would have to go through all of this again, I would probably be too scared to start a traditional business.

In all seriousness, I started my own FS business  23 years ago, it has been a blast, full of ups and downs, no two days are the same, every hour is a new challenge, and doubt is around every corner, but truly… I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I have had a fulfilling 34 year career as an Independent Financial Adviser, love my clients but the physical toll of working long hours had me dealing with issues of chronic neck and back pain, constantly feeling tired, unable to sleep and mental fog topped off by an early menopause and changes to regulation left me looking for something, that something I didn’t know what it looked like., I started to research the importance of nutrition, diet and supplementation, I began to learn how simple changes to my diet and lifestyle could dramatically change the way I felt.

By making a few simple changes to my working life, reducing my working week by half and my approach to nutrition I was amazed by what I started to see. My headaches had gone, my tiredness replaced by an endless supply of energy, where before I was struggling to get through the day.

As my transformation continued and as a Financial Adviser I suggest we all have 3 income streams. I began to see that lots of other people were dealing with the same issues, I found myself beginning to get paid for sharing my passion with others, showing others that there was a way to get off the hamster wheel and helping them with their health and wealth and claim back some of their time. Putting me first instead of facing the 6 challenges has been the best decision of my life.

I am looking for people who are tired, stressed and want to claim your zest for life and improve your overall work-life balance, build a residual income and legacy income for your family.
