The Lighthearted Women Online Success Group

Would you like to be part of a community of like-minded business women who support each other through the challenges and successes of building a successful business? The Lighthearted Women group is a networking and coaching group held in small groups to allow for meaningful and authentic interaction.

Building your business can be a lonely and challenging experience. So many decisions to make and so many factors to consider. But when you are with a group of like-minded women who are also working on their business, well, have you heard of the phrase “a problem shared is a problem halved”?

The Lighthearted Women support each other’s endeavours by offering feedback, sharing ideas, referring your business to their contacts. Not only that, these wonderful women challenge you and encourage you to go further and better each time! Are you ready for this?

Members of the Lighthearted Women online Success Group have access to weekly online catch-ups with their group, facilitated by Anna Healy. Also access to a private Facebook Group to network with other members.

The Story Of The Light Hearted Woman

The Lighthearted Women group began as a passion project in early 2020. As a Business Coach I was very aware of the challenges that Covid-19 brought to business all over the world. I wanted to reach out to my colleagues and clients in support, to offer them an avenue to express themselves and their stress and to help them reach out to others.

So I arranged an online catch up every Tuesday morning at 11am. As the group progressed, it became apparent that these gorgeous women had started to thrive in the group, building connections, bonds and even gaining business from the group.

The topics change every week and everybody contributes to the conversation. The energy in the group is Lighthearted and supportive, and that is how the name of the group came about.

I have also set up a private Facebook group of the same name and plan to develop a podcast of the same name too, celebrating the members of the group who would like to tell their story and share their business advice.

Who needs a new tribe?

  • Would you like to be part of a dynamic supportive group of women who are there to help each other become better every day?
  • Would you like to build new business contacts and get new referrals?
  • Would you like to be inspired by the stories and experiences of your colleagues?
  • Would you like a pep in your step every Tuesday morning?
  • Well….you know what to do!

With Lighthearted Women, you get access to 20 other like minded women in your pod who are your cheerleaders, willing you to do better, be better but loving you as you are!

You get to explore ideas about your business; get advice, inspiration and suggestions on how to develop, improve your business idea.

You surround yourself with people who want to do better, be better and be influenced by this energy to improve your business. It is a closed group, the same people show up every week to learn from each other, which means that you get to know your people.

One of the biggest challenges that women in business experience is isolation- when you are setting up your business a lot of your friends and family will not understand what you are doing and some will think that you are crazy to even consider going out on your own!

When you are with other solopreneurs who understand what it is like to be alone, what it is like to start a business and thrive in their success, you will feel stronger and more able to keep going even in the tricky times. You will be with your solopreneur tribe.

Frequently Asked Questions
“But I am not very confident.”
You don’t have to feel super confident when you join the Lighthearted Women, we will help you do that. Because part of the group will be to introduce yourself, your business and anything else around your business.

You get to present to the group on our #soapbox, describe your services, share your background story. All of this is done in a small group setting with some wonderful feedback to be shared afterwards.

You even get to keep a copy of the recording if you wish so that you can look back and soak up all the compliments.

“But I have nothing to offer the group!”
Yes you do! By being there, supporting the other women in their #soapbox or challenges they experience, giving them a virtual hug, that is a wonderful offering.

Sometimes we don’t realise our power or impact, and a kind word from you could mean all the difference. Plus you have friends and family who could be future customers for the members of your pod!

“But I don’t really have a business, only a business idea.”
We have members in the group who are starting out in business, we have women who are much longer in business.

All of these women have something to learn from each other and equally contribute to the group. There is a quote out there about surrounding yourself with people who you want to be.

Sometimes it is nice to be surrounded by like minded women to build what you really want.

“I am a bit shy in groups.”
This is a very different group. Everyone gets to speak in this group. There is no pecking order in the group. There are no “clicks” in this group.

People may know some people but when we are in this space, we are safe and supported. But you can see for yourself, try it for a month and give yourself time to settle in.

“I can’t make it every week.”
That is fine, there are other members who have this challenge due to other commitments. You can continue to be a member as long you are consistent in your attendance and your presence is authentic.

My 3 Month Wingwoman Coaching Programme

This is my signature programme and the most results-driven offering that you can put to use. This intensive 3 month programme will help you build your success plan and keep you on track of your goals. When you have your Wingwoman with you, there is nothing you can’t do!
 
For the 3 months that I will work with you, I will bring my vast coaching toolkit with me and use what is needed to help you move from a state of stuck to success.

Much like a mechanic working with your car, I will bring everything I need to make sure that you and your engine are completely ready for the long journey ahead. 

This can include mindset reset, life coaching, business strategy, accountability buddy and cheerleader for when the road gets bumpy.  You will have your Wingwoman with you, there is nothing you can’t do!
 
Ask any of my clients, I am not the typical 9-5 Coach, I am there when you’re in the thick of it, supporting you in the side-lines, helping you work strategy, building your confidence and pushing you out of your comfort zone. 

Because life and business is not 9-5.  The programme will include 6 coaching sessions during this time with the flexibility of an extra one if needed. 

As a mindset and confidence coach, I can tell you that we have over 60,000 thoughts going through our minds every day, over half of them unconscious, and a lot of them limiting (and negative) thoughts about ourselves.
 
We all have certain beliefs that have served us well until now, but like a bad penny it is hard to be rid of them when we want to move on and try something different.  I have different strategies and techniques you can use to help you to stretch your mindset and create new possibilities, hence my tagline “create your own possibilities”.

Part of this offering is to join my Lighthearted Women Online Success Group for free. You’re welcome!

Frequently Asked Questions About The Programme

“I don’t know if this is the right time for me..”

Whenever we think about making changes in our lives, we will usually experience self-doubt: the gremlins kick in with all sorts of reasons not to do something.

If you settle down and really listen to what is happening, I am sure you can reassure yourself that this is indeed the right time and that I will be there to support you and encourage you on your journey.

The fear is real, I understand this, but I also know that the need for change is real too, so I work very gently with you, at your pace, focusing on small actions to make change.

As someone said to me recently, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” I promise you won’t have to eat elephants but we will break this programme into tiny bite size pieces xx

“I have so much on at the moment, how am I going to keep up with the programme?”

Our time is so full these days but I promise this programme will help you with that. By having a coach as your wingwoman, I can help you get laser focused on what is important and manage your workload and life responsibilities better.

The programme is flexible to you, I have clients who can only do early morning or late evening appointments or lunchtime appointments and we work around that. The way that I have structured the programme allows you to have time to set and complete goals with realistic timelines and realistic expectations.

Yes life can get in the way sometimes but when we work together we will look at all potential challenges and roadblocks so that we can help you manage and thrive with your business and life.

“I don’t think I can work to a rigid programme”

Neither can I!! When you work with me you will understand that my programmes are tailored to each client because we all know that everyone is so different for each other.

I don’t have a week 1/week 2 structured type programme; I bring with me a set of mindset and coaching tools that I have developed over the past 20 years. I use these tools as required to help you build your strategy, get focused on your goals, build your confidence and keep you on the road to success.

“I don’t know if I can afford it”

Everybody has financial responsibilities, and I understand that a prudent person needs to be sure that their money is well spent. With my programme, you have 3 months of coaching from a highly experienced coach, who is with you all the way.

Think about it, if you are unhappy where you are right now, if you really want something to change and you really want to see change in a short time, how much are you willing to invest to make this happen?

My programme has shown significant results with people, including earning back the value of the programme within a short time, getting that amazing job, starting that new business with ease.

By working with me, you will get laser focused on your bigger plan, you could be going for that promotion you have always wanted, you could be moving from a 5k month to a 10k month. How much are you willing to invest in yourself.

What do I have to do?

Working with me is very simple, when you meet me I invite you to just be yourself, share your story in a non-judgemental space and together we will work out what is the true path for you.

With my 20 plus years of experience of helping people succeed at life, business and career, I have tools and skills that I can share with you to help you get clear about your challenges and find simple ways to get through them so that you can get on with living your best life!

I understand that change can be scary, especially when you are not sure what you are changing to, but there is a reason you want something to change in the first place.

Things are not the way you want them, life can grow arms and legs that we never expected, things creep up on us and we are not aware of it until it becomes uncomfortable and sometimes suffocating!

When you work with me, you have your wingwoman beside you, making sure you succeed at finding the right fit in your life, finding that feeling you want from your new way of living, working, doing business.

Sometimes we are not completely sure of what we want because we haven’t see it yet, but we are very clear about what we don’t want! And by working with me, you get to explore all the possibilities before deciding on the one that fits you perfectly.

Sometimes when you get advice or training, you are left to go implement all your ideas on your own. With my programme, you will not be alone.

Over the 3 months of coaching, you get to chose your goal, your direction and I will be with you all the way, guiding you, advocating for you, pushing you and cheering you along the way.

Just bring yourself, the real version of you, the one that is enthusiastic, excited, scared, nervous, motivated and always curious.

I have been there…

When I look back on my life, I can pinpoint a few pivotal moments when the earth moved for me. When I failed out of college almost 30 years ago, I had no idea what I was going to do.

I drifted for about 6 months, working in a meaningless job, losing my confidence and unsure of what was in store for me. I was picked up and supported by a family member who took the time to find out what I really wanted.

With this support, I found a really good job that took me in the direction of where I was truly meant to go in life and career. I went back to college and graduated a few years later with a degree and a strong group of lifelong friends.

At one point in my life, I burned out from the challenging career that I had pursued. I had spent 10 years living the high life, work hard play hard kinda lifestyle, so it was going to catch up on me eventually!

Yet again I was at a crossroads in my life, mentally exhausted and unsure of my direction and not sure what was out there for me. I took a career break for 6 months and went to live in a small fishing village in West Cork.

A good friend who took me on for the 6 months as a Diving Instructor (I know! How cool! Don’t worry, I was trained!), to work on the boats and outdoors. It was exactly what I needed to recover and find myself again.

When it was time to return to my old job, I knew that it wasn’t going to fit me anymore. With the help of my friend, I stayed in West Cork and I found an amazing job as a Job Coach and a whole new world opened up to me.

So the reason I am sharing this with you is that we all outgrow our lives at some stage, like the caterpillar growing into a butterfly, except we do it a few more times than the caterpillar!

I like to think of it as living in our box, our box being our comfort zone, our safe space, a place where we can make sense of our world. At some point in time, we start to grow (emotionally, spiritually, intellectually) and the box can feel a bit squashed in places.

We know it feels a bit pinched but we like our box so we try to shape ourselves to fit the box. This can work for a while but soon you will have to build little adaptations to the box, for example, build an extension to our box to allow for space. I call this a compromise.

Soon the compromise might wear thin and you may need to build another fix to the box that you are in. Soon your box will look like a patchwork fix and still it might serve your purposes.

At this point you have a decision to make, do you continue living in this over adapted box, or do you blast the roof off and build a new box that will fit with your current reality using your original strong foundations.

For me, I feel that I have done this at least 3 times in my life. When life was getting over-complicated with my compromises and compliance, and I was still unhappy with my circumstance, I decided to do a complete survey of my box and do a major overhaul and really decide what I truly wanted with my life and work.

The transition to a new and improved box is challenging but when you get there the view is amazing!! Plus I always had a wingwoman with me to help me make the transition smooth!!

About Forest Bathing
Forest bathing fosters a love of and protectiveness towards the natural world and emerged in the 1980s in Japan as an effective treatment for stress-related health issues. Research shows that volatile compounds found in trees and the benefits of being in contact with trees and the earth help to significantly reduce inflammation and stress in the body. Forest Bathing creates the perfect storm of movement, mindfulness and being in nature, all guaranteed to help you wind down and stop stressing. Around the world, people are turning to forest bathing as an evidence- based way to unplug, relieve stress and encourage creativity.

Forest Bathing simply means immersing yourself in a forest setting. It is a natural way to calm your senses in a busy world. It reconnects you to the forested planet that we as humans grew up in and, in doing so, imparts you with a profound sense of peace. Forest Bathing is spending time in a forest to reduce stress and feel a sense of wellbeing. It originated in Japan, where it is called shinrin-yoku, and it is now one of the cornerstones of Japanese healthcare.

Forest Bathing draws on the therapeutic powers of nature and connects people with the natural environment. With guidance, you can learn to make the experience truly immersive and bring all your senses into play, leaving you feeling calmer and happier. It sounds like an alternative therapy and yet, in many ways, it is simply a return to our original state of being.

Guided Forest Bathing consists of a seemingly simple journey which can have a surprisingly powerful effect. Your guide leads you on a gentle walk through the forest, and offers ‘invitations’ to activities that heighten your sensory awareness. As you step into the moment and feel that deep connection to the natural world, you can expect to gain a sense of peace and balance.

Forest Bathing combines mindfulness techniques with the therapeutic powers of the natural environment. This has a positive effect on your mood, reduces stress, improves concentration and frees up creativity. It has also been shown to help with depression and anxiety.

The experience closes with a Japanese tea ceremony, using foraged plants. It’s two hours that changes your perspective on the world. 

Career Coaching – Interview Preparation

Would you like to polish up your interview skills? Has it been a while since you have had an interview and you are not sure what to say? Do you get distracted in the interview and forget to show the panel how amazing you are? Or do you feel that your answers are not strong enough?

I can help you get your mojo back.

I have found that the motto “fake it til you make it” does not work for most people. I prefer to work with “competence builds confidence”, if we know what we want, if we know what message we would like to get across and we have confidence in our skills before we attend an interview, we will have a much higher rate of success.

Over the course of 3 sessions, I will work with you through a series of competency-based interview questions relating to the role you want. We will focus on your skills and experience.

We will focus on the job specification and requirements. We will work on your mindset and your confidence. Plus you get to practice your answers with me so that you feel comfortable with what you want to say.

Invest in your future and prepare for your interview.

Career Coaching – CV Development

Are you looking to return to work after a career break? Have you grown out of your current job and don’t know what opportunities are available to you?

Are you looking for that promotion and don’t know how to sell your skills and experience? Have you lost confidence in your abilities, or have you forgotten all the amazing things that you are capable of?

I have learned that when we stay in a career for a while, we can forget what skills and talents we actually have and what we really want from a job. We can lose our confidence and play the small game.

Making changes to your career path can require a major mindset shift.

Over the course of 3 sessions, we will really dig deep and get to know what you like, what you know, what you value and what are your dreams and wishes.

This is a gentle process where we work to your pace and identify all your strengths and qualities, including the ones you had forgotten during the busy-ness of life and work.

We look at opportunities that might suit your skills and interests. We will look at the challenges that you may come across in this journey and build a plan to manage this.

During all of this, we will build your Curriculum Vitae to suit your skills and experience and values.
