Business panned out as you'd hoped for in in 2015?
Before you know it, it will be 2016 - another brand new year, another set of great intentions and I am wondering what needs to happen for you to achieve your aspirations in 2016?1
So often I see and hear business owners going round and around in circles, like a needle in a groove on a record.
Coaching via phone & Skype is great and we can achieve so much without the need to travel, but there are times, when we need and want to connect face to face, for real as it were.
When we are stuck or need to work at a deeper level, nothing comes close to the impact of working face to face 'in real life' with a skilled and experienced coach and facilitator. Getting out the coloured pens and paper, buying a new notebook and taking part in activities - as one of the previous participants put it: "you just can't do this over the phone or via Skype, I had to be with you, for you to facilitate ... to draw this out of me"
Time to stop talking about your vision and make it a reality?
During this 2 day business retreat you will delve into your inner game as well as gain the practical stuff,1 designed to help you make life-changing decisions and take major steps towards having the life and business you want.
By combining NLP, life coaching and business mentoring, we’ll be going deeper than most business coaching events.1 We’ll find out what’s stopping you from achieving your goals, unpicking any unhelpful beliefs, identifying your vision and creating a plan with action steps you can take to reach your goals.
Who would get the most benefit from these 2 days?
- You're frustrated and wonder why you haven't got any closer to your goals
- You're not sure what to do to get to where you want to go
- You sometimes find it difficult to take action, even when you do have a strategy
- You feel overwhelmed by everything that needs doing
- You find yourself comparing your life and business to other people's - and somehow you always come off worse
- Your confidence dips and that makes it even harder to do anything
- You know you're blocking your own success and you keep hitting the same obstacles but you don't know what to do
- Have days where you love your business to bits and feel on top of the world, but still get too many days where you feel you have lost your way, overwhelmed by self-doubt and totally stressed out?1
Lots of people have had these thoughts and experiences.
The good news is, you don’t have to stay stuck!

2 Day Group Retreat:
Your Core Values
Once you know your core values, it becomes easier and quicker to make decisions about your business and to know what actions to take.
When you live in alignment with your values you can tell you’re heading in the right direction because life seems to flow, you’ve got more energy, you feel motivated to take action and you have peace of mind.
If you find yourself stagnating and not taking steps, or experiencing inner conflict, it’s likely that’s you’ve slipped out of alignment with your values.
Business Planning Visioning
Using a "Visioning Timeline" exercise from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) you will harness both sides of your brain – the creative right hand side, and the rational left hand side, and use all your senses to see (and feel, hear etc) to discover what it is that you really want.
We’ll also check that your head and heart (the two brain hemispheres) are in alignment - and that's powerful!
The exercises we’ll do will help you identify and clear any blockages, creating real solutions for any challenges you face in your business.
Your Road Map
Vision and values are fabulous but not a lot of good without plan for making them real. So, you will get the pens out and draw out your Road Map which will lead to loads of ideas and actions. Eeeek comfort zone alert!
I don't need to tell you that when you step out of your comfort zone you step into your potential zone and that's when the eeeby jeeebies step in and try and stop you ... and then it's time to look at your wiring - your beliefs ...
What do you believe?
"Our ability to create is determined not by what we want but in believing we can" Eleesha
If you stop and listen to the voice in your head, your inner critic, you’ll hear it expressing lots of your strongly-held beliefs like, ‘That’s OK for her but I couldn’t do it’, or, ‘I’ll never earn what I want to, or, ‘I can’t do that’.
Maybe you are not even aware of an inner critic, but the chances are if you aware at some level that you are holding yourself back there is some self-sabotage going on!
We’ll identify any self-limiting beliefs (or as I often call it "dodgy wiring"!, put them into the ‘Museum of Old Beliefs' (NLP techniques) and create new beliefs which support you as you move forward. It’s not quite as simple as it sounds but it can be done and it will mean that you can alter that nagging voice in your head, even make it your ally and move forward..
Your Big Money Numbers
So many of us 'difference makers' start our businesses because we want to do just that, we want make a difference - do our bit to help make the world a nicer place.
The trouble is we can get so focussed on helping others we forget to focus on the money side of our business and I know that you know what happens when we focus on an area in our lives? Yes thats right we get more of what we focus on!
I'd like to ask you, when was the last time you really focussed on the figures in your business, what do you need and want to earn each week, each month etc and what products and services do you have in place at differing levels to suit all levels of investment (both time and money investments) that will generate this income?
On the 2 days you will take time to look at this crucial area, bringing it into focus - so that making money doesn't just happen or not happen by accident.
You know you want to!

"I have come away totally buzzing and with a clear plan to follow for the next steps in growing my business"
"I really want to thank Claire for all her hard work and wonderful facilitation and coaching on the Daring Greatly 2 day retreat. I have come away totally buzzing and with a clear plan to follow for the next steps in growing my business1. Claire is so generous with her ideas and time. she created a wonderful space to learn and grown and has shared lots of her skills and experience with me, for which I am extremely grateful. I highly recommend these two days with Claire to take the opportunity to step out of your day to day life for a while, and just take the time, with expert facilitation to work "on" your business - you will come away feeling inspired and motivated to move forward. Many, many thanks Claire. x

Claire manages to pulls things out of me that I didn’t even know were there!
" I have achieved so much over this time and can highly recommend doing this for your business. I am quite a focused and motivated person, but Claire manages to pulls things out of me that I didn’t even know were there! You work through your own agenda and even if you don’t know what that agenda is, she asks the right questions to find out and all this done in a friendly, fun, relaxed manner, all done over coffee/cake/fruit. What did I learn from this?
* clairity of my business, my vision, mission and what I am.
* knowing my numbers, I knew to do this but never did! Going through this with Claire was an eye opener.
* Finding out where my gaps or holes were in my marketing. That obvious oh yes of course moment!
* working through some of my stumbling blocks – phone call scripts and emails/letters of introduction to colleges
So if anyone is thinking about it and wondering if mentoring is worth it, this is a resounding, definite yes and I would highly recommend Claire as your mentor. Thanks Claire xx"
If you want to be winner you need to be on the next programme!
“After going round and round in circles, feeling overwhelmed at setting up a new business and frustrated at wasting time at poor quality business coaching groups I was absolutely delighted to stumble across Claire Godwin through a Facebook group. The group has provided me with the perfect combination of mentoring and coaching, with business development skills and workshops tailored to my needs. After two sessions with Claire I have found the confidence to get out there with my message and arrange a new series of workshops for my clients. If you want to be winner you need to be on the next programme!”
One month in it has delivered immediate results
I discovered Claire Godwin at one of her Presentation Skills workshops and was immediately drawn to her warm friendly personality. She shared some brilliant ideas with us and I quickly became hooked! I joined the programme as it offered a mix of business and personal development and one month in it has delivered immediate results. With Claire's guidance and the support of the group I have a new business name, website and I am developing my products and services. Claire Godwin is a brilliant coach and mentor and I highly recommend WOBS programmes.
Claire cracks open the mystery of how successful business are made
“I was looking for a business mentor. Someone who I could relate to. Someone with the skills, ability and experience to help me make a success of it first time. Here I am a month into the WOBS programme – I’ve got my name, my niche and I’m developing a website and Facebook page so I can get my message out there. My confidence has increased. I’m learning about selling, marketing, product stair casing and all sorts that I just hadn’t a clue about, to be honest. I’m so grateful to have access to Claire’s mentorship and guiding. She keeps me focused and accountable. I appreciate the comradeship with the other WOBS too. If you’re ready to step up a level in your business and you’d like support to achieve that then WOBS is for you. You don’t have to struggle on on your own. Claire cracks open the mystery of how successful businesses are made.”
