Staying Healthy When You Are Super Busy

Jul 5, 2015

I love healthy food. Veggies are something I actually enjoy eating. That's not to say I never have a drink or dessert. But in general, I'm happy to say that I'm a pretty healthy person who rarely gets sick, and uses essential oils and natural remedies when I do.

However, I recently found out I have the symptoms of a painful disease called endometriosis. While I don't have the fertility issues that some women with 'endo' do ( we're very happy as a family of 3 at the moment), the pain can be awful. Doctors do not yet know why women get endometriosis, and there isn't a whole lot they can do besides give pain killers or worse case scenario, remove a woman's uterus.

The good news? Diet and lifestyle can ( and have) made it so that I have months where I am virtually pain free. It's all about digestion, in my case. I have to be extra careful about what I eat and make sure I am getting lots of fiber and my fill of veggies and fruits.

One of my coaching clients is an acupuncturist who specializes in treating women with endometriosis, and also has it herself. I spoke with her about what I'm going through and also reached out to local herbalist and also one of my favorite herbal doctors about alternative treatment and I'm happy to say I'm doing much better. The herbal supplements plus the overall improvements in diet ( aka just eat more veg and limiting how much dairy I eat) have helped me immensely.

Today, the lovely blog whisperer Hayley Richardson is sharing her business and blogging tips for holistic, creative women who are looking to grow their platforms through guest posting and webinars. 

SS: Tell us about your blog + biz!

I mentor creative and spirited coaches, helping them to reach more people and touch more hearts with their blogs. I’m passionate about creativity, freedom and blogging as a tool for soulful self-expression and much of what I share on my blog is with the aim to help them stretch themselves and reach a wider audience, by sharing the messages they feel they were called to share to make a difference in the world. 

Above all, my work is about helping my clients feel aligned with themselves when they share pieces of themselves on the blog, because I think when you’ve got that part nailed, ideas tend to flow through you, rather than you feeling like you have to clutch at straws to create meaningful work.

Connecting with like-minded women is probably one of the best parts of my job, and my beautiful clients often remark how working together is more like collaborating with a long-lost friend – which is pretty cool, don’t you think?

Simplify Blogging: Suzanne Chadwick On Listbuilding And Business

Jun 8, 2015

Today on Simplify Blogging, the beautiful Suzanne Chadwick from The Connection Exchange is sharing her list building and business tips with us!

SS: Tell us about your Biz and Blogs!

My business is The Connection Exchange, which provides coaching, training & events to help women build their business, brand and bottom line. It's been just over year of growing something that I really love and where I saw a gap in the market. There are loads of inspirational and networking events but I saw a gap for focused training and education of new business owners. Because I'm so passionate about providing practical advice and training it just seemed like the right fit for me. I train people in my corporate job and I love talking and working ideas with people which also means that coaching is a perfect fit for taking people to the next level of their business in a one on one setting.

When it comes to blogging, I've between blogging for the last 4 years. It started when I was on maternity leave and wanted to do something a little fun for myself. With a passion for fashion I started STYLISE which was sharing fashion how too's, craft DIY, foodie love and anything that took my fancy really.

I also have a corporate blog, The Social Recruiter, which focuses on Employer Branding which is what I do for my day job. Then I have The Connection Exchange which is obviously about practical ways to build your business and brand.

I love blogging because it lets me play with ideas and share my thoughts. I also see it as an easy way to help and educate people on topics that they are searching for. A blog is such a great branding tool as well. One day no one knows who you are and then, if you do it right, you can be seen as the next expert in your field. Obviously you have to know what you're talking about but it's such a great communication medium.
