Louise George

Life & Business Coach, Presenter, Actress & Founder, Bodhi Babes

Hi! I'm Louise. I founded Bodhi Babes to inspire & support women and to help you create and live the life you desire. I've been there! Working jobs that made me miserable, spending all my time building businesses for little reward and feeling confused about what exactly I was doing it all for. It took me years to gain the confidence, clarity and right mindset to create the freedom based business and life I desired and I want to share my tools and practices with you, so you can start living the life you desire now. Feeling Stuck I trained as an actress and presenter always knew that was what I wanted to do but lacked the confidence, clarity and mindset to make it happen when I was younger, I also felt the pressure to get a 'real job' and my self- belief took a knock every time I went up for a casting or role I didn't get. So, I put my dreams to one side and took jobs and began building careers in other industries, first in real estate, then in advertising. I've always been creative and working in a corporate environment didn't suit me. I craved the freedom to work for myself and so decided to start my own businesses, I really had no idea what I was doing at first and learnt as I went along. I had some success with a property management and private PA business and then fitness coaching business, but something was still missing. Gaining Clariy After a series of events that got me questioning my life's purpose, including a dear friend and client passing away and personally suffering from depression, I realised it was time to take control and gain the clarity I needed to create the life I truly desire. So in 2012 I began a serious journey of self-development, working on all areas in my life and business, to regain my self-belief, balance and reconnect with who I am as an individual. Since gaining that clarity and focus, I have been able to create the life I could before only dream of. I am acting and presenting again and have worked on some brilliant films. I discovered that I also love coaching and from working with my fitness clients I found that women were looking for more than fitness coaching and it was actually their self-belief and confidence that needed the most work and many women are searching for the clarity and tools to create the business and life they want. Bodhi Babes Bodhi Babes began because I got clear on what my core desired feelings were and I realised that I have it within ME to achieve more than I had ever allowed myself to imagine before. Bodhi Babes is one of my great passions in life now and if I didn't get that inner clarity it would never have existed. I would also not be running beautiful workshops, 1-1 sessions, or writing this message for you. I am so blessed to have seen the light and the chance to create a life I am so in love with and that feels great. I want you to feel the same... Bodhi (Sanskrit: बोधि; and Pali) in Buddhism is the understanding possessed by a Buddha regarding the nature of things. It is traditionally translated into English with the word enlightenment and literally means awakened.

Nearly ten years ago, I waved adios to my senior investment banking job in London to help as many people as possible start living their un-lived lives. Nowadays, I spend a disturbing amount of time thinking about overcoming fear and the obstacles we place in our own way (we are bizarre creatures, aren't we?). If being braver, a bit more bonkers, and living on purpose is your thing too (squeal!), lets hang out here, and come for green tea over at mine on www.mandylehto.com
Charles Thiede

CEO & Co-Founder, Zapnito

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.

Flourisher, Ghostwriter, WellBeing Ambassador & Author of The Flourish Handbook, -

Aiming to make the world a little less frowny and a lot more appreciative, positive & resilient
I'm inspired by who you can be without apology and I want to help you let your real self shine. I've been a life coach for 10 years. I've always been a seeker trying to discover a way of being in life that feels soulful, authentic and aligned to what my heart wants not what my head thinks I should have, be or do. I spent 20+ year career in HR, OD, talent management and executive coaching. My kids were my biggest wake up. I saw the way I was working wasn't working anymore. I couldn't keep pushing myself harder. I had to accept I couldn't attain this perfected version of myself that I had strived most of my life to achieve. I had to find love not from accolades and other people's acceptance but from deep inside me. That's when I learnt to connect to my heart, heal my childhood wounds and fears of never being enough and set light to my passion in a completely new way. I want one thing for my clients. Be real. Be themselves, fall madly in love with that person and honour their soul's calling.

Professional & Personal Coach, Author, Speaker & Journal Coach, Life Is A Work In Progress!

I am energised and come alive when I am writing and journaling and over the years I have filled the pages of over one hundred journals. I am a book aholic and see writers of all genres as part of my natural tribe. I am qualified in many areas of personal development and well-being including a Masters degree in creative writing and personal development from Sussex University and in the completion stages of training as a psychosynthesis counsellor. In a period of twenty years I have authored four published books, 49 Ways To Write Yourself Well, Be Your Own Best Life Coach, The Journal Journey Guidebook and Soul Purpose along with numerous workbooks, e-books, free journaling products and articles for a range of journals and magazines. In my professional vocation I work as a corporate coach, coach supervisor and leadership facilitator. I love what I do, no two days are the same and I love how I can bring so much of what brings me alive into this work. I care about our environment and have a deep reverance for trees and nature. I hold nature and journaling as my go to sources of well being and write regularly around the therapeutic benefits of forest bathing, connecting with nature and journaling. Twice a year I open the doors to my online well being journaling class, Paper Therapy. Over five weeks you are immersed in a world of journaling prompts and exercises that empower you to creatively and mindfully grow a daily or weekly journaling practice. You will learn about the therapeutic benefits of journaling and how journaling can help you thrive even when you are challenged and stretched. Paper Therapy http://www.jackeeholder.com/events/paper-therapy-online-journal-writing-course/ I journal regularly, love listening to an eclectic range of podcasts interviews which challenge me to think outside the box. I am an early morning urban city walker and love the quiet hum of the mornings when most of the rest of the world is asleep. I have a real curiosity about trees and tree mythology and love the way trees beautify our and resource the environment. London is my home and for now I feel so lucky to live in the city with the most green parks and spaces in the world.
