Cocktails and Dreams Come True

We had a very busy, sold out Contacts & Cocktails on Thursday evening, as you can see from all these cocktails I ordered. And that was the first round!

It was great to see our regular guests and meet so many new business owners, among them an Art curator who also specialises in framing, a photographer, a videographer, a skin specialist, divorce coach, social media manager and many more fabulous business owners, all happy to help each other and talk business on purpose.


Brilliant! Join us at our Christmas Contacts & Cocktails on December 12th.

We were joined by my guest of honour, the Entrepreneur of the Year, Luke Murfitt from Integrity Cleaning, who starred in last Monday’s blog.

If you missed it, you can read all about the UK Business Awards and what his inspiring initiative was that led to his rise to success. Read it here if you missed it!


And OMG! My dream has come true… I did it!

and this happened last week too! OMG! A dream come true, 📚my book is officially in Waterstones Piccadilly. Make Your Mondays Matter is on a shelf near you! 💥 It’s on the 4th Floor of Waterstones in Business & Management, I am so chuffed to see my book there, after all my hard work. It has taken me months (or years if you take into consideration how long I’ve been writing blogs and my popular newsletter to my community every Monday) taking little steps, following up each month since my book was published, chipping away at my goal, to finally see it in Waterstones Piccadilly.

If you’re not in London, please do visit your local Waterstones and ask for them to stock it too! That would be an amazing help. All spreading the word to help other business owners succeed. Let me know if you do pop into your local Waterstones please and ask for the book, so I can thank you.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been to Waterstones Piccadilly quite a few times to see if it was there, so when I eventually did see it, wow, it was quite overwhelming!

There’s a video!

I had to capture the moment when I saw it on the shelf for the first time and did a lil’ video! You can watch it via my LinkedIn, Facebook page or Instagram. Thank you for your kind words and support in your comments. I am so grateful and happy!

Here it is on the 4th shelf on the 4th Floor of Waterstones Piccadilly, who claims to be the largest book store in Europe. Woohoo, I did it!

Your Action Point today is…

With only 6 Mondays left (including today) before Christmas and 7 Mondays until the end of 2019, who do you need to follow up with again to help you see more results and achieve your goals?

Your Action Point today is to identify who you need to follow up with again, and follow up!

Who have you met recently who you need to connect with on your social media accounts? Who have you sent off a proposal to, or new artwork, new design and still waiting to hear back? Who do you want to speak to again? Follow up, again today. Every step counts, and they all add up nicely!

What dream do you want to see come alive?

I’m talking to people about my new Mastermind Groups, starting in January 2020 and would love to talk with you too if you are interested in how the groups can work for you, giving you the support and guidance to propel your business to the next level.

Please get in touch today and let’s have a no-obligation chat about your current dreams, challenges, goals and ideas and how I can help you and your business rise up in 2020.

What do you want to achieve next? What are you stuck on? What goals or plans do you need help bringing to life? Tell me here, I’d love to help you.

Have a fabulous week ahead. Keep your goal in mind and take the next step.

To your success and happiness, make your Monday matter!
