My trusted recommendations for books, business services, and Affiliate partners.
If I’ve used them, and like them, I don’t want to keep them a secret! They could help you too!
PAUL KNIGHT: Paul Knight Coaching
As you know, I will only ever share affiliate information from clients, friends, colleagues
And Paul is at the top of the list!
Back in 2015, Paul asked if I could help to self-publish his first book, Lose Weight From the Top Down followed quickly by his second book, Diet Success.
We have since written two books together: The Write Way to Be Happy Journal and 91 Affirmations: Lucky Dip Your Way to a Happier, Healthier You.
Paul is extensively experienced in the health, fitness and lifestyle industry, and has some fantastic resources.
You can have a mooch around Paul’s online store here:
He has everything you need to improve your health, fitness and wellbeing, namely:
- an online monthly ‘5 Life’ club with a companion journal
- 5-minute workout plans (my kind of workout to get me away from the desk at regular intervals during the day!)
- weight loss bundles
- an ultimate walking guide
If you’re looking for gift ideas and/or need to give hubby/partner a hint, then look no further. The biggest investment we can all make is to take of our own health, fitness and wellbeing; that way everyone else we spend time with reaps the rewards too.
As you know, I will only ever share affiliate information from clients, friends, colleagues and resources I have full faith in.
And Claire, founder of The Girls Mean Business, well deserves her place on my Trusted Partners’ podium!
I’ve worked through heaps of Claire’s brilliant business programmes, and followed her throughout my 6-year freelance career.
Everything I learned in those early days and beyond (from business practicalities to tackling confidence and mindset challenges) is thanks to Claire.
I’d like to share with you two of Claire’s flagship programmes: The Brilliant Business Academy, and the Awesome Marketing Planner System. Both have private Facebook groups where women in business from around the world ask for advice, share their expertise, ask for recommendations in the group for services or gifts, and of course cheer each other on when we’re having a rubbish day. Invaluable!
Brilliant Business Academy
This is worth 10x more (at least) and it’s only £15 per month in any case).
- fab mini-classes and masterclasses (How to Write a Book, Squeeze More Profits, Fill Your Classes and stacks more)
- regular live Q+A sessions where you can pick Claire’s highly knowledgeable marketing brain
- networking sessions with other female business owners from around the world
And you can learn much more about all the important stuff us business ladies need, like social media, copywriting, e-marketing, targeting, getting new customers, selling, confidence-building, list-building, pricing, productivity and on and on and on.
What I love about Claire’s way of teaching is that she speaks in simple language so you don’t feel bamboozled (there’s nothing worse than having to look up jargon just so you can understand what someone’s talking about!).

2019 Awesome Marketing Planner
Claire’s 2019 planner (that’s so much more than a planner!) is also available to buy right now too. It’s fab if you’re serious about growing your biz, tracking your sales, setting and nailing targets, and being a ‘real’ business owner instead of faffing about. And the training portal that comes with the planner is again, worth its weight in gold. You get:
- a colourful, gorgeous planner that inspires you to get organised
- 12 months of training (new content each month)
- an A2 wall planner (to keep your productivity top of mind every time you walk into your office)
- a free Facebook group where you can network with other plannerinas
- regular bum-kicking emails to keep you laser focused on your business (instead of wasting time on social media watching cute pet videos)
Make 2019 the year you stopped faffing and started being a successful business owner. Grab any of Claire’s offerings and you won’t be disappointed.
