Fairyland 1 - Fosters 0

For the first time in 2 weeks, I was on family walk duty as Tim picked up a last minute contract.

I am pretty sure Mr Foster wouldn’t have allowed the wet, windy woods to win!

On a #TechPixies note... I am THRILLED to welcome Cohort 21! Doors to Social Media Magic close tonight at midnight and don’t re-open until September/October!

I love this Chinese proverb (modified of course to fit 2020). For the past week, I have been hanging out with over 1000 AMAZING WOMEN in our Social Media Supercharge Free Training Facebook Group.

I have LOVED seeing women transform their confidence and start to believe in themselves in just a few short days.

I had a vision 5 years ago of helping 1000 women upskill. What cracks me up is that I didn’t think that vision would come together in a single week.

This is WHY I am such an advocate of visioncasting and spending time with your future self. Your subconscious is ALREADY wired to do great and important things, whether that is helping 10 people or 10,000 people, your heart knows what you were designed to do but you have to tap into it.

At TechPixies, we believe in holistic training which means we teach digital skills in tandem with mindset training.

I am soooo looking forward to welcoming the next generation of TechPixies (cohort 21) into our tribe on Monday.

If you have participated in our free training OR have joined our Social Media Magic programme, I would LOVE to know your key takeaway about mindset in the comments... #bebraveandsparkle #sparkleandthrive #bringbackthesparkle #TechPixies

Who thinks we should get #TechPixies star masks?!? ...

Want to know what a woman who invests in herself looks like?

Here are just a few amazing women who invest in themselves regularly.

Front and center is Marianne Avery who transitioned from customer service senior management to social media superstar management via the #TechPixies Social Media Magic Course. She is now working on an account with a collective following of nearly 75,000 people! You can connect and follow her @socially_maz.

To her right, you can see Jess Rogers, the very first life coach that we ever worked with at TechPixies. Jess is constantly investing in herself and she shares her knowledge in her 'weekly boost' email. Definitely go follow her @jessrogerscoach and sign up to her 'weekly boost' (link in her bio). These are just two of the amazing women in our tribe.

Are you in our tribe? Tell us in the comments why you love it?

In these unprecedented times, investing in yourself is more important than ever.

Investment isn't just about money - you can invest in time, in hobbies, in faith or meditation... Investing time might mean going for your daily walk while listening to your favourite podcast (my favourite podcast is 'Online Marketing Made Easy' by @amyporterfield), reading a book or setting aside time to do an online course (like our 'Social Media Magic' course or our upcoming free training - see link in bio). What about revisiting a hobby you might have given up when you were too busy before COVID-19? Learn to play the guitar with @guitartricksinc or revisit watercolour painting with fabulous online tutorials from @ellesmithart.

One thing that is on the rise lately is faith and meditation - be that prayer or quiet time for reflection, studies show that daily mediation and prayer relieves stress and anxiety. I've found comfort in the book 'Praying Women' by @sheilawalsh1 and 'Miracle Morning' by @hal_elrod.

I know it can feel awkward to do something 'selfish' right now by investing in yourself but just remember - if you are happy, those around you will be happy and if you are investing in yourself, you'll get closer each day to becoming the person you want to become.

Trust me on this one, it is selfless to be selfish sometimes. Don't ask for permission for 'me time' ask for support. Can your children or your partner give you one hour to yourself M-F so that you can invest in yourself?

If you are happy, they will be happy. I promise.

Tell me one thing in the comments that you will do this week to invest in you?

Happy Easter 🐣 to you all!

Sending you lots of loved from our locked-down home to yours!
