The Business of Self Belief
Supporting Women To Bloom in Business
Many women go into business as a way of exploring their independence, freedom, and creativity. A business provides many opportunities to succeed but will also test your confidence to rise above the inevitable setbacks.
While there are both highs and lows in any business, we currently face unprecedented pressure to survive in the Covid-19 world. The newness of this experience means no one knows how the business landscape will look in six months.
Confidence and self belief have never been more important. The economic reality cannot be underestimated, but neither can finding opportunities to resiliently sustain your business and your mindset.
I continue to support women in business to bloom in business by addressing the situations and fears that can trigger an exit. I focus on tools to improve your self belief, and skills for building a stronger business foundation, now needed more than ever.
I hope you find this site helpful as part of your support network going forward.
With best wishes, Irene

“...this course has been almost life-changing for my mindset and thinking about the way I approach my work, colleagues (especially when I don’t see eye to eye with colleagues) and the topics about status and self sabotage have all been hugely impactful….I am no longer coming from a place of not feeling good enough, I am approaching my professional work from a place of inner confidence because of the things I have learned in this course.”
