For many, becoming an entrepreneur is a one-way ticket to more freedom - no fixed hours, no controlling boss to answer to and (the best bit) more time with the family.
From the outside it seems like the hidden ingredient to ‘living your best life’, but for many the reality is anything but.
Throw in broken nights (why do these always happen just before a super important day), unexpected illness, school closures, nursery staff shortages and partners conveniently injuring themselves the day before their day to have the kids, and it’s not surprising many mums in business end up wondering if it’s all really worth it.
This is the moment I should swoop in and tell you ‘there’s an easier way’ - but truthfully, I’ve experienced it all (and still often do) and I've come to the conclusion that there really is no one size fits all solution.
But - I have built multi-award winning wellness businesses and grown them to six-figures whilst being a mum...
Are you in the final year or final few months of your wellness course, eager to get started with your own business?
Or, perhaps you just recently qualified and are feeling somewhat overwhelmed by all the things you weren't taught during your training to turn your passion into a profitable business?
Many wellness entrepreneurs spend the first few years of business throwing everything against the wall and hoping that eventually something will stick. Only to find that the hustle is very much real, and even after all the hard work there is little to show for it.
In today's Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode we explore five action steps you can implement from the very beginning (or even before you qualify) to lay the key cornerstones to the future success of your business.
Want to know the best bit? Getting a head start on your competitors not only means you'll be way ahead when it comes to launching your first product or service, but the work you do now will eliminate the...
The question on every wellness entrepreneurs lips is - "how do I get a consistent flow of clients without hustling my a*** off?"
Perhaps one month your booking system is blowing up with enquiries and you convince yourself you've nailed it, only to find the next month you're checking your internet connection to make sure it's all working due to the deathly silence from your inbox.
Sound familiar? Well, if you're nodding along to this then you are not alone. Not only have the majority of my clients experienced this before coming to work with me, but this was a regular occurrence for me in the early days of business too.
In today's Wellness Entrepreneur podcast episode I teach the ONE strategy that eliminated this struggle for good, and allowed me to create a steady stream of pre-qualified clients coming into my world every single day.
Ready to ditch the old story of scarcity and struggle and replace it with the secret sauce to scaling your wellness business? Of course you...
Have you been wondering how to leverage your in-person offering online?
Are you at that point in your business where you realise there is only so far you can go with your current business model?
It's predicted that by 2025 the online course industry will be worth ... wait for it ... $325 billion!
Pair that with one of the fastest growing industries (yes, the wellness space) and you have a recipe for phenomenal success.
While it may be obvious why an online course could accelerate both the impact and income in your business, it is often met with a lot of confusion, overwhelm and tech-phobia when it comes to getting started.
In todays Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode I break the whole process down to five simple (yet mighty) steps that will have you in full course creation within weeks - serving at scale and creating the impact your work was always destined to create.
Are you ready to embark on a journey that has the capacity to totally transform the trajectory of your business...
Have you invested thousands in courses, programmes and coaching to hit your business goals, only to find nothing has really changed?
Perhaps you've gained some momentum but things still feel very up and down.
Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed a pattern in coaching enquiries from practitioners in the wellness space who are reaching out to me saying 'Kirsty, I've spent thousands but things just still aren't happening - can you help?'
So in today's Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast episode we are debunking this and exploring exactly why so many feel that EVEN when armed with the latest strategies and promises of scaling their business in 'next to no time', success still seems to be a long way off.
Are you ready to get real on exactly why this is happening to so many and find out how you can avoid this common entrepreneurial pothole? Let's dive in.

There is no denying that the entrepreneurial roller coaster is tough (and that's even before you throw a global pandemic into the mix.)
It's easy to look at another's success and assume that somehow they've had it easy, or that they know something you don't when it comes to navigating the steep ups and downs.
In today's podcast episode, I interview my mentor, best-selling author and self-made millionaire, Rob Moore - whose own story is one of a struggling artist turned serial entrepreneur.
In the last year, Rob has openly shared his own personal struggles with mental health and his recent exploration of therapy and other tools to support his own wellbeing.
I was curious to interview Rob to uncover the impact this exploration has had on his business and to hear his thoughts on so candidly sharing this experience.
In todays episode we unpack:
This is going to be uncomfortable. I am going to say the wrong thing and I may cause offence but I refuse to carry on 'business as usual' because it just isn't.
I am aware this is going to look performative.
I am also aware that this may cause many people to unsubscribe.
This is a risk I am willing to take because saying nothing is choosing to stay part of the problem
This discomfort is nothing compared to the injustice, brutality and absolute disregard for the lives of people of colour.
As a a white woman living from a place of massive privilege - I am sorry.
I am sorry for not speaking out sooner. I am sorry to my black clients and followers who may feel they have not been represented as they should have been in my business. There is no excuse.
This week I have stopped all promotions, stepped off my social media platforms (apart from to share valuable resources) and have committed to listening and learning.
This goes beyond the hashtag - things in both my life and business...
