Giveaway Monday – Review of a service for mums in business
I was relatively new to the Motivating Mum site when I won the Self Confidence e-course from Reverie Consulting. A little background on me, I am a WAHM to a 2.5 year old girl and have been working in my own business as a graphic designer since her birth.
Up until recently I have been quite content with my workload and always “busy” in my business but starting to get an itchy feeling I wanted to step it up a notch. I have only ever received work from word of mouth and never had to actively seek people to work with, which was due to lack of self-confidence, so when I saw the course pop up on Facebook I knew I had to jump on it. It was definitely what I needed.
Now, the nitty gritty. This course was an eight week journey that was quite challenging, asking you to look at yourself and analyse thoughts, behaviours and how to become like the people you aspire too. It talked about self-love, why we need to put ourselves first (which is not an easy thing to do after being conditioned to look after everyone elses needs), and to discover our passions and get back our spark! Remember that pre-baby spark when we had the world at our disposal?
Throughout the course there were different presenters specialising in different fields, but you always felt you were in good hands and I thoroughly enjoyed the different presenting styles and even looked forward to each session with anticipation. I found the course surprisingly labour intensive – not in a bad way – encouraging me to think about myself which was challenging.
Some of the workbooks were long which meant you needed to set aside blocks of time to immerse yourself in them. Although they take time and lots of consideration, the outcomes are worth it. You find that the answers are inside of you and the course is the key to unlocking your doors. At times this can be very confronting and at the same time, liberating. You are encouraged to envision your ideal life and given the steps needed to get where you want to go.
I know that the person I was pre baby was so different to the person I was beforehand. This course even tackles how to rethink how we dress, especially if your body shape has changed since having a baby – I know I’m not slipping back into size 10 jeans…ever again!
These little changes make such a difference to our confidence levels. Spending time on ourselves, our needs, our soul – it was great to have some focus. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and will be revisiting past workbooks for further inspiration going forward.
Thanks to Kathryn for the opportunity and to Alli for making it happen!
