Hi , I hope you're really well. Sorry for the radio silence last week, I was going to write but then I decided to devote my attention to those on the Frankly Unstoppable Retreat so that I could give them my best. However, I won't do that to you again and will plan better next time.
What a week was had! I keep re-reading all the lovely comments learnings and insights the group experienced (which you can see on my social media channels) as well as the fun and laughs in our WhatsApp group post-retreat. Of course I can gush about how great it was but I think it's better to hear it from their own words, so I've picked out a couple of quotes from some work they did to share with you - especially if you're considering joining the next one 😉 - There's already one testimonial posted, so have a read, more to come!
“The retreat has given me breathing space, a peaceful mind and strength I never knew I had. This has been the space I really needed, at a point in life where my career has really mentally and physically drained me, I have benefitted from having detached from that intensity.”
“At the beginning I was feeling a bit resistant to exercises and teachers. As the days were passing on, the more magic started to happen.”
“It’s made me realise that this is just the start of a much longer journey to helping myself mend, adapt and grow. I’ve realised some of the things missing from my life that I need to tap into more so I can get to where I need to be.”
“I hadn’t done anything like this before so I didn’t have any preconceptions. I was immediately struck by how friendly everyone was and you just tell that everyone wanted to be here, get the most our of it and also support me to get the most out of it too.”
Something I wanted to share with you and which inspired the main quote for this email, is the ability to own your decisions. I saw it a lot on the retreat and it made me reflect on my own intentions for myself at the retreat. I realise that I've been trying to please everyone with my coaching practice and that is impossible to achieve. I give a lot - as is my nature - and felt compelled to do the same with my business. Having reflected and received more feedback from clients, I have made some decisions that I think will make a big difference to what I do and how you benefit from it.
- In order to work with me, the best place to start is on a retreat or weekend programme ( I have modified the 6 wk transformation programme.) You will get the best out of yourself and me in this way - this is client approved.
- I'm going to spend the rest of the year prioritising my physical health. My self-confidence was affected on this retreat and I now know exactly how important it is for me to personally improve my health in order for me to give you my best self when you work with me. Therefore, the next programme is in January.
- Working with the right people starts by feeling it in your gut. If it feels right, I will do it, otherwise I won't. I noticed this on the retreat, everything felt right about working with Elisa (yoga/massage) and Kate (Pilates) compared to other people and companies I've worked with this year. Hence the change in UK venues.
I hope that you will get to experience this new found insight through my various communication channels as well as in person too.
I am also gearing up to launch The Frank Truth Podcast! Have a listen at the link for a preview of what's to come and I'd love to hear what you'd like me to talk about too. Just email me back with some of your ideas.
