It is like outtake TV here in the Grayshan household! Who said working couldn't be fun. I have laughed so much this weekend making professional media, I am such a geek πŸ˜‚

Look out for the bloopers video coming soon πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ Seriously though, I will be looking for people to watch my professional video (less than 10 mins long) to let me know if it's clear and easy to understand so drop a comment if you are up for that. 
Freebies for those that do, to say thanks 😊

Feeling sluggish and perhaps not looked after my body lately eating foods that are less than ideal πŸ˜… so I'm cleaning up my diet and drinking the body cleanse. Feel I need the body MOT!! P.S. is it only me who LOVES lemon drinks?? Literally addicted.

Today was a bit of a #mumbun #nomakeup and #glasses kind of day. Parenting alone and miserable weather with a grumpy boy teething.

Just wanted to keep it real. It's easy to think everyone looks amazing every day and life is easy when looking at social media pictures . On days like this I just remind myself to go with the flow. Even on days like today when the kids ask for 715285 snacks in 60 seconds and they are grumpy as hell, I'm still super thankful I am home with them. I didn't have that choice before and now I do. It wouldn't suit everyone which is fine, but it suits me.

We still managed to have a really lovely day watching Disney films, eating snacks and chasing each other around the house ❀

Today is a big day at the Grayshan household!

We are a stone's throw away from completing the first stage of moving my business onto the next level, turning over $120,000 a year and teaching others to do the same.

A lot of you will know my background- I qualified with a 1st class degrees in forensic science and became a scientist with a pharmaceutical firm. 
However after having Elsie my whole life changed ❀ I didn't want to spend all my time rushing from work to nursery, working hard for someone else's dream, working in the summer holidays and not seeing her. After having George I wanted to make a change. We decided it was best all round for me not to return to work, support Nick as he frequently travelled abroad for his career, and be present for the family. I resigned and became a full time mum to my two little monkeys. It was scary at the time although I have never looked back. However I am a driven person and wanted something extra for myself and to build for my families future. So I did something about it!

I listened to an opportunity which quite frankly scared me as it wasn't the norm but was essentially risk free. I decide to go for it and see how I got on. I am SO glad I did!

George was 4 months old and my business consisted of me and my phone. I switched my skincare to a cleaner, toxin free, more effective brand, through my own shop I bought at a discount, and I shared the opportunity and the products with people who had a need. With (part time) hard work and learning, I have a beautiful client base and a team of wonderfully supportive ladies running their own businesses for their own goals. I promoted my business shortly after to District level, the 1st of only 4 levels in the business.

That's when I saw the huge potential. A year on and I'm about the complete the 2nd level where the average income is £1,000-£3,000 a month, working flexibly around my family and doing more self development then I ever imagined which has changed me for the better. The friendships, the experiences I have had, and will continue to have, I will always cherish. ❀

Just finished this book #girlwashyourface in the sunshine outside, and I would recommend it to any one, man or woman, in business or not. Incredible uplifting book by @msrachelhollis. 
So now I feel capable to do anything! Well worth It, very easy read.

One thing I love about my business, we do read or listen to audio books quite a bit. There's always a recommendation kicking around. I had never read a personal development book before being self employed. I always felt I didn't need it!! I think every person would benefit from a bit of personal development and if you think otherwise, it's probably because you need it. So don't be scared, pick up the book and see how you feel at the end.

Cosy morning today. Little chilly outside so we are playing on the rug. 
Winning at life as I'm drinking a HOT drink, while the little one naps and I'm squeezing in 15 mins work. 
No doubt this afternoon will entail collecting sticks and leaves and having red noses. Love autumn.

How do you relax?

I sometimes find it difficult to turn my brain off enough for sleep. A lovely friend and business colleague bought me this thoughtful gift. Its a bracelet with an unscrewable lid. Inside there is a disc which is capable of absorbing a few drops of essential oil. I put different oils in for different effects such as the focus blend for help concentrating.

As I wear the harmony blend on the evening, I get a whiff every now and then, probably similar result as a diffuser. Very subtle tones and it works πŸ’žπŸ˜΄ #relaxation #relaxationtip #selfcare #troublesleeping #harmonyblend #essentialoils #oil #bracelet #jewellery #gift #switchingoff #switchingoffmymind #getintooils #mynewthing #itworks #loveit #lifehack #relaxationhack

SELF EMPLOYED DRAMAS

I know many people who are self employed and it generally means if they don't work they don't get paid right? Sick time off=No sick pay. Holiday= No holiday pay. 
So this is why I started to look at how I could maximise the time I could work as I didn't want this problem. If I only have 10 hours free per week to work, how could I get the maximum benefit from this. 
In my business, I don't get paid per hour like normal jobs. I work once and get paid over and over on that work I did. This means if I work 10 hours, I would be getting paid on much more than that. It also means I'm not relying on 'work and hour, get paid for an hour' too.

This is because I am creating and building a business with residual income. I coach people to build businesses to give them that extra money to reduce their hours at their job, quit their job, give back to charities or whatever their dreams are. I also help people become the best versions of themselves- be healthier and create a life they want, not one that is forced upon them by their job.

When I researched time leverage and the cash quadrant it was clear to me, social marketing was the way forward to build a business for my family.

Where will you be in 5 years...? Do you like the look of that future....? There is only 1 person that can change how it looks. YOU. With my help πŸ˜‰
