13 Sep Reinvent Yourself in Paris
Put Together Your Business Strategy in Paris
Have you been wanting to make some big changes in your life, career or business but haven’t quite figured out how you’re going to do it? Or perhaps you’ve already started but can’t quite make that full transition and let go of what’s holding you back. This was me a few years ago. Separated, but sharing a house with my ex, working at a business that had I built up but still feeling trapped and unfulfilled. I desperately wanted to change. But, as you may know, making changes in your life or business means making changes in your mind-set more than anything else.
So, I did it. Step by step. I now own my own five bedroom home in London where I live with my three teenage children. I’m back at University studying Business Psychology at postgrad level and I have revamped my business to do more of what I love to, and applying psychology to help both me and my clients make changes. I run a travel blog in my spare time and sometimes get to travel for free! I was asked to join the advisory board for the women’s business club, Sister Snog, and I’m the fittest I’ve been in five years.
I certainly don’t profess to have created “a system” or “programme for change,” as I really do believe everyone is different, but through business psychology and my own personal experiences, I have learned about how to create plans, structures and processes to help create that change…and once change starts happening it’s a snowball effect.
It’s the changes that you want to make that I’ll be addressing on my one day Paris business retreat. Just take one day away from the fray with me in stylish Paris where we can work through your next big project, career move or business campaign, step by step, and then be supported by me with three months of follow up coaching (or backside kicking if that works better for you).
It’s a day for you that is perfect for:
- Putting together a plan to raise your profile and get more out there
- Thinking through all the practical steps you neeed to implement to make a new stream of income work
- Strategise a new direction for your business
- A thorough analysis of where you might be getting stuck
My most recent companion in Paris had an idea that he wanted to write a book to help him move up to the next level. By the end of the day we had looked at whether this would be better delivered via other routes (ecourse or video course for instance), come up with a title, format and a list of chapter headings; put together a shortlist of people that could help him with the project and a plan of how he could prepare for marketing it in advance.
I’m now booking in my retreat dates for the next quarter. Dates available are Monday 17th October, Tuesday 18th, Wednesday 19th, Monday 31st, Wednesday 2nd November, Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th Thursday 10th and Friday 25th November.
We’ll begin with a leisurely breakfast on the Eurostar where we will relax into the day, getting to know each other and setting your intentions and goals for our time together.
I’ve chosen the bohemian area of Montmartre as our base for the day and it’s here where we will intersperse deep coaching and strategic planning with visits to my favourite chocolaterie, the stunning Sacre Coeur, a delicious French lunch, and the hustle and bustle of this artistic district. Whilst the serenity of some retreats has its place, I believe that we also need energy and creativity, and this area has this in bucket loads.
The day is unhurried and relaxed and you will also have a little time to yourself to digest our work, do some solo exercises or just have a bit of a wander around Paris.
You’ll leave Paris early evening, with plenty of time to decompress on the train home, and review our plan. Then, over the next three months we will work together to make it happen. Meanwhile, my address book of contacts is open to you: if I can’t help with something I probably know someone who can.
The one day retreat is £2100 which includes Eurostar from London to Paris and back, meals for the day, any of my PR courses that could help, plus three months of follow up coaching.
