How my Business idea began:
My desire to help help working mothers achieve a healthy, well balanced lifestyle and well-being so that they can contribute their good potentials and skills they have within them, began on a day when a family friend came to visit us early last year. She is a young mother of two and was worried about her weight, she said she had been trying to lose weight for a while now especially after she had her last child who was around two years old then, but she had been finding it so difficult to keep the excess weight off. I asked her what effort she had been making to achieve her weight loss, because i had seen several colleagues from work facing the same problem and struggle and i spoke to some of them to offer them help.
She told me that she had tried by joining the gym in the past and attended weight loss regime with a trainer, but it became rigorous for her to keep up and she was not getting quick enough result, as soon as she stopped, she began to put back on the weight, the same had happened to her when she tried different weight loss programs in the past, most of which were diet related, but she kept putting back on the weight after these programs ended, she said that some of the programs became too rigorous, and expensive and so she had to stop. She said she found one weight loss program online recently and she felt it looked reasonable, so she had started to follow the steps and it cost her £500 per month, but she felt it does not seem to be working much for her. I was shocked at the price she was paying to lose weight and thought in myself that i have better ways around this problem, from my experience and knowledge, i can reach out to people like her with my easier and cheaper method and help them achieve the result i had, i knew weight problem is usually not caused by one aspect of the activities of daily living, it stems from different underlying causes some of which are our mental health, lifestyle and diet, to name a few. This thought stayed in my mind and i began building on it. After asking my young friend few more detailed questions, i explained to her how i kept my weight off without so much rigours and this encouraged her.
I have been seeing online advertisements and invitation to learn how i can teach what i know and make this lucrative, i was interested but did not know how to do this or what to progress with, so after i spoke to my young friend the idea played on my mind and then there was a moment when i read online about how a woman in particular, taught her expertise online with ease and style, i was encouraged and i joined her course as i was interested and her price was good, she also had a lot of students and membership site. I learnt a lot from her course and this really motivated me to start my own coaching course.
My vision is to reach out, using a holistic approach, to working mothers who are facing challenges with balancing their work and family lives and struggling with maintaining good health, having a self care time and quality family times, to achieve and maintain a holistic health and a well balanced lifestyle, based on my personal experience, learnt skills, research and a found to be effective methods. I want my clients to enjoy practicing what i teach in my course and then be able to reach out to other women who are struggling with the same challenges.

Hope you all keep keeping safe and positively occupied through this period, the topic on maintaining a positive, healthy mental state taught in my course should be a helpful one during this times, don’t miss it, and i believe the sun will come out tomorrow.
