It’s here! THE BOOK!! In April 2020, I challenged more than 4,000 women to lean into their future selves and to learn how to leverage social media in order to return to work, change careers or start a business. One thousand women took me up on it! The result was the most amazing shared experience which led to the creation of this book.

I wrote ‘Social Media Success’ to help you to look at where you are now, where you want to be and think through the steps you are going to take to become the woman you’ve always wanted to become.

I believe social media is one of the most powerful tech tools on the planet and if women can overcome their fear of it AND learn to leverage it professionally, they’ll be unstoppable.

See what we’ve been up to…

Do you have the desire to impact people in a Big Positive Way? The fact that you are here, reading these words, means that you undoubtedly do. So you are that person who wants to help others, say by providing a fantastic service or an amazing product that will enable others to effect positive changes in their lives, BUT you aren't sure how to and how you can make it profitable for you? ⠀

There isn't a quick fix, but with hard work and a willingness to effect change for self and others it is so achievable. So much of it depends on the way we think about what we want to achieve, what success means to us. So much of our success is down to our mindset. Oh and having a helping hand from someone who knows how to help you get the best out of you and guide you through this new way of thinking.⠀

Our founder @TechPixiejoy joined @drshannonirvine on her Epic Success Podcast and tells the story of her entrepreneurship journey and how Epic Success Academy helped her to unleash her success and work through her Money Mindset Blocks. ⠀

For Joy, Money was bad. She grew up being embarrassed about money and sought to escape it. This is so often the case for business owners, wouldn't you agree? But with the help of Epic Success Academy, she was able to rewire that story and shift her entire belief around money as a whole.⠀

It is an inspirational and motivational Podcast Episode to listen to and highlights that with the right support you can learn how to tap into your own mindset, learn how to think of new possibilities and ways to drive your life and business forward AND how to positively impact others lives through and through, and in a long lasting way. ⠀

So if you want to hear what Joy and Dr Shannon Irvine talk about in detail then type "Yes" in a comment below and we will DM you the link to the podcast and help set yourself on the path to a new mindset. ⠀

And lastly do you think it is time for you to invest in you? We think it is and we want to hear below what is the first step you are going to take and what you have decided to lean into to make that change and invest in you. ⠀

🌟Hooray for Monday and some very exciting news. It's a huge shout out to our fantastic Lisa (@wandrinwomen). ⠀
Lisa is now our Brand Manager, she has been instrumental in driving forward the look and feel of @TechPixies. From the colours we use to the array of different types of stars, to GIFs on Twitter and so much more. 🌟⠀

Lisa loves all creative pursuits from singing to retiling a bathroom! She initially studied Fine Art at Edinburgh College of Art where she specialised in Fine Art. Although you’re far more likely to find her behind a screen than with a paint brush in her hand these days!⠀

She taught art & design ...and all things in between, to all ages for many years. Eventually she decided to delve into Graphic Arts and graduated with a Masters in 2015. ⠀

Lisa joined TechPixies in 2019 and she is the first to admit that it changed her life. “Doing the TechPixies course has definitely been one of the best decisions of my life and to be privileged enough to work for TechPixies, playing my part in the team to help women to fulfil their life goals whilst doing what I love is a win-win situation".⠀

We are so proud that Lisa completed the TechPixies Social Media Course, then said yes to becoming our Digital Marketing Assistant, then our Branding Manager and Podcast Manager. We are so honoured to have such an amazing Community filled with the most talented of women. One of these is Lisa and for that we are eternally grateful. Happy dance ensuing 💃🏼and we hope that you will join us in raising a glass and dancing with us to celebrate Lisa and the TechPixies Community.⠀

Have you ever compared yourself to others? Comparison is natural, after all we need someone to aspire to and inspire us. But there is another side and this often takes place when we are trying to set up or grow a business, learn a new skill to return to work, or change careers. ⠀

It usually starts with the question "Am I Good Enough?" which can then lead us to compare ourselves to others. It's called Comparisonatis. Yes that is a word! This is when you compare what you perceive someone to have, with what you’d like to have – and it leaves you in a state of wanting, a state of lack. A state where "Imposter Syndrome" starts to take hold. So Not a great place to be.⠀

At @TechPixies we believe in a holistic approach to training. We teach digital skills in tandem with mindset training with weekly Life Coaching Sessions. Focussing on your individual mindset is key to your success and will enable you to keep on track with your mission, identify your Values and your Uniqueness and set you apart from everyone else. ⠀

Our Life Coaching sessions are transformational. So what better way to hear about it than from a TechPixie. So here is what Gloria (@glofitand50fit) had to say about how life coaching impacted her life whilst she up skilled on our Social Media Magic Course:⠀

"𝑊ℎ𝑎𝑡 𝑙𝑖𝑓𝑒 𝑐𝑜𝑎𝑐ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑑𝑖𝑑 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑚𝑒.⠀

It enabled me...⠀
To find my worth⠀

To allow acceptance of compliments and know that...⠀
I am capable ⠀
I am valuable ⠀
I am worthy ⠀

To reframe the negative thoughts and always move forward with positive action and specific goals. It’s the first time I have put specific goals on paper with a time frame, believed in myself and achieved them."⠀

So setting a clear goal to work on your mindset and staying focussed are great starting points. We also have a fantastic free pdf which will help you find out how upskilling with SOCIAL MEDIA can help you BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE and re-ignite your EARNING POWER. DM if you would like the link to the resource. ⠀

Lastly Thank You Gloria for sharing the transformation you experienced whilst on our course. We are seriously Proud of you!🌟⠀

🌟Let's start the week off right with a fresh perspective and positive mindset. At @TechPixies we truly believe in the importance of working on mindset and so we thought we should introduce Teresa (@youatwork) who has a HUGE part in enabling all TechPixies to grow and sparkle. ⠀

After all a positive mindset can give you more confidence, improve your mood, and even reduce the likelihood of developing conditions such as hypertension, depression and other stress-related disorders. So here is Fabulous Teresa who can help you make this happen with you.⠀

"Hi I'm Teresa, TechPixie Life Coach and it's one of the most amazing roles I've ever had. And, it's easy to say why. Time after time, Cohort after Cohort, I witness the most incredible transformations in women's lives. Confusion and indecision moves to clarity and certainty. Confidence returns and women begin to do stuff with their lives that they had only before dreamed of. I know that all sounds dramatic but it's true. ⠀

Who wouldn't love to do a job like that! It's all I have ever dreamed of too. To be able to listen, support and walk alongside brave women looking to move from one phase of their lives to another. It takes my breath away to hear how hard women can be on themselves and my mission is to enable them all to see the beauty and brilliance they all have ALREADY!⠀

The inclusion of Life Coaching in TechPixie training is the fuel that drives the mothership. Our founder @techpixiejoy has an unwavering passion and determination to empower women to achieve their goals and live the life they want, and so gives Coaching as much clout in the programme as the tech stuff and hey! That's me! Doing all that great stuff, with great support from an amazeballs team and in a business with rock solid values. Bring it on!!⠀

Thank You Teresa for providing the coaching for all TechPixies. We are so honoured that you are a part of the team. ⠀

Now it is over to you, we'd love to hear in a comment below 👇the positive impact life coaching has had on your life. Do share so we can show how life changing it can be and help other women see its true worth.⠀

🏆 We won!!!

TechPixies is officially a @watc_hq 'Rising Star'. 🎉 Huge thanks to @vanessavallelyobe for including us in the 'Editor's Choice' Award!

Tonight was the 'virtual' awards ceremony AND I thought I should post an awards selfie because I'm very proud of this award even if COVID meant I couldn't receive it in person.

A little backstory... I have spent DAYS trying to find time to 'doll' myself up - to don a fancy dress 👗 and do my hair to create a 'perfect' picture for this award.

It was not to be.

I had to let go of perfection and just be me. I love t-shirts 👕 and I love headbands - 99% of the time, I work in running gear (always promising myself that at some point that day, I will get that run 🏃‍♀️ in!).

I'm not going to lie. I love that I've created a job for myself that means I can literally roll out of bed and rock up to my desk and get going. How lucky am I that I have been able to have the best of both worlds: A thriving business that transforms women's lives from the comfort of my own home.

I'm thankful to amazing women like @damestephanie_ who have paved a path for my generation to build successful businesses from our kitchen table leveraging technology. I'm thankful to my incredibly supportive parents who always encouraged me to follow my heart. I'm thankful to my wonderful husband and my children who have given me the time and space I needed to pursue my dreams. And I'm thankful to the amazing women who are involved in our life-changing programme - as students, team members, advisors and investors.

Every day, my team and I work to help empower women to have the confidence and the digital skillset they need to create a fulfilling and stimulating life, a life with purpose and meaning, one that gives them the ability to become financially independent should they choose to be.

💖 So thank you all for believing in me, for joining our programme, for nominating us for awards. It is wonderful to be recognised and I'm thankful from the bottom of my heart.

🌟CPD Graduation Time. This is Julia from @thisisbecreative and she is a @TechPixies CPD Graduate.🌟⠀

At TechPixies we celebrate the little wins and the big wins with everyone in our Community. We are really proud that our Social Media Magic Course is CPD registered. This means that when you complete our course you are ensuring that both your academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated. You are developing and investing in your professional and personal growth.

Something to celebrate and so what better way than to hand over to Julia to say a few words. It is after all her Success Story and her journey:⠀

"I started Tech Pixies in 2018, on maternity leave with my second child and it felt like another career crossroads. I'd been involved in social media, working with marketing teams within my current role, but I didn't have the confidence around posting, content or really 'who' I was. I knew it would be really helpful to offer social media skills as part of my wannabe creative consultancy. The coaches allowed me plenty of time for discovery and growth which was so important to me.⠀

When lockdown hit and I was furloughed I was able to focus on finally finishing my report, it gave me the brain space I needed! I'm not naturally analytical but actually really loved it and could easily see how much I'd already learnt and put into practice. ⠀

Getting the CPD qualification and Pass + was the icing on an already super-delicious TechPixies Cake and I can now confidently add 'Social Media Strategist' to my portfolio of skills, just as I hoped when I started the course.⠀

I'm now on the Progression Course and I've really honed my creative services and am busy with branding clients, doing workshops and creative coaching. Thanks to TechPixies, the future is bright and full of sparkle!"⠀

So a Huge Congratulations to Julia for becoming CPD qualified. It really is a fantastic achievement, so well deserved and we really hope you think so too. Oh and yes it is now time to do the TechPixies celebratory dance 💃🏼. You going to join us and raise a glass 🥂to Julia? ⠀

Do you have a morning routine?

I started one a few months ago after reading @hal_elrod’s book ‘Miracle Morning’.

Anyone who knows me also knows that I ❤️ reading! I typically get through a book a week.

While I prefer to listen to books on audible when I am running, when I really love a book, I buy both the audible version and the paperback version.

One of my favourite books of 2020 is ‘Fear is not the boss of you’ by @jenniferallwood.

A couple of months ago I had to face my fears around a particular business decision and I binge listened to the book on a single weekend. It helped me overcome my fear and the results were incredible! I launched a 4 part free training series and over 4,000 women signed up.

I loved it so much that we have given away more than 20 copies of the book to our audience.

I am excited to announce that this book will be the first book we talk about in the newly formed #joybookclub.

For now, the #joybookclub is totally free and every week, I will host a virtual book club starting mid-August and we are going to by diving deep into @jenniferallwood’s book as my first pick.

If we have 100 ladies sign up to the bookclub, @jenniferallwood will do a special drop in on one of our virtual calls for a Q&A. I know we can do this!

Do you want to be one of the first members of the #joybookclub? All you have to do is type ‘I’m in’ in the comments below and I’ll DM you the link to sign up to register. I can’t wait!
