Humanise your business 👵🏼👨🏻👱🏼♀️👳🏼♀️🧔🏽🧑🏼 The main take away from @sixandflows fantastic event today is how important it is to have a balance of automation, processes and systems and still put customers at the heart of everything you do. The event not only gave me some great marketing tips but I’ve come away with a huge desire to take out @inkpact app within salesforce to another level... we’ve created some phenomenal technology and no one really knows about it, it’s time to step into the area and get it out there .. the world needs to see it! @sixandflow I’m sure we’ll be in touch about this! Thanks for having me today super inspired, and thanks for letting me share the @inkpact journey! 🙏🏻💛
Today I feel like I’ve got this 💥 doesn’t happen every day, but today things are happening, really happening; I’m in flow, I’m happy, and I’m focused, we’re getting results and we’re making stuff happen! I love days like today 🙏🏻 💛 who else is having a #girlboss or #boyboss kinda day?
Yin & cuddles 🙏🏻💛 • After a crazy week of meetings, events, some high intensity work outs and one too many Jager bombs last night (thanks @mesh_kumar ) I’m spending today being kind to myself, I spent some time reading and researching the most interesting people, I prepped my food for the week, I’m off to yin yoga (which I used to hate because it was too slow now I crave it because it’s beautifully slow) and I’ve had lots of cuddles with my fav little kids jay and Flo 💛 perfect Sunday.
Today’s #ThankfulThursday and maaaajor #throwback is Tash - @natasha_evans____ ⠀ 💛⠀ This lady has been a huge part of my life since I was 5 I think? Spending all my weekends with her growing up, we were in separable -otherwise known as Totti and Tash (cheesy I know). We really were a double act. Spending our lives dancing onstage and talking a lot about boys, she is like a sister to me! Growing older we don’t see each other very often anymore and we live pretty far apart but she will always be my best friend and I’m incredibly lucky to have her in my life. The quote “friends are like stars you don’t always have to see them to know they are there” is so true for us. ⠀ 💫⠀ Tash is the most patient, caring, loving person and as a nurse she spends her whole life caring for others. I admire her for being so selfless and being such an incredible person. This week she brought the most beautiful baby into the world and I know she’s going to be the best mum. I’m so thankful for her. She’s stayed my best friend even when I’ve moved away, spent months deep in my own stuff yet she will always be there for me no matter what. The world really needs silent hero’s like Tash :)⠀ 👶⠀ We’ve started this series because I couldn’t do this crazy rollercoaster called life without some amazing humans. But sometimes we forget to take the time to thank them and be grateful for them in our lives. So every Thursday, I’m going to publicly share who or what I’m thankful for and I encourage each of you to do the same by tagging someone below with a little message. The world needs us to be open and share how much we appreciate each other. We’re all part of this great global tribe and we can’t do this alone. ✨ #tagafriend⠀ ⠀ #thankfulthursday #thankful #grateful #family #bemorehuman #bekind #bethankful #iamthankful #iamgrateful #celebratefriendship #gratitude #blessed #leadwithlove #womeninbiz #livewithpurpose #liveauthentic #leadwithcourage #embracevulnerability #womeninbusiness #femaleentrepreneur #femaleCEO #femalefounder #startup #startuplife #charlottepearce
this is totally what my weekend needs to look like ✨ • • • • @yogi.bare @yugen_lifestyle
Holding a newborn if your arms makes you question your own bullshit, shows you what love really is and makes realised how we can be unnecessarily cruel to the rest of humanity. • When we look at a newborn baby like the beautiful Pippa (my best friend baby not mine 😂) we don’t start criticising everything about her, we don’t start judging her actions or putting stereotypes on her, she’s perfect in every way. Without her doing saying anything I love her with my whole heart, which surely proves that love doesn’t come from what people can do for you, or from living up to some expectation. • Imagine if as humans we could look at the whole of humanity with as much love and empathy as I do to Pippa. With no preconceptions; no judgement of actions they’ve taken in their lives and without making them “wrong” for anything they have done in their lives or for any opinion they had. • Wouldn’t the world simply be a better place if we could see all humans for the amazing people they are, even sometimes regardless of the “bad” things they have done (in our opinion). • Like everyone else I find this hard, a daily struggle because sometimes I’m so stubbornly adamant some people are just wrong, we don’t need to condone actions but simply look beyond our ego and live with a little more love and compassion to everyone we come across, you don’t know their story you don’t know their life. • Pippa I can’t wait to see you grow up, you have the most loving parents, and I’ll always be “fun” auntie Lottie who will ramble on about love life and living to the full- I’ll always love you even when I have judgements about you and I promise to try to be a role model for you in the world. • 💛👶🏼💛
A few down days - but that’s okay 👌🏻 For the last couple of days I’ve felt a bit shit, not one particular reason but I’ve been sleeping more, not had my usual high energy, I’ve been moodier, snapped at loved ones and not shown as much compassion to myself and others. I’m angry at myself for over indulging over Xmas and my holiday and I haven’t seen some of my friends for ages. But you know what that’s okay- a few months ago I wouldn’t of even posted this but it’s not all stages and creative sessions, it’s real and it’s hard and sometimes you aren’t even sure why. • • But I have an amazing group of people around me, caring friends, a loving family and I’m super grateful to live the life I do. It’s when I was holding my best friends newborn baby yesterday (pics to follow) I was reminded how beautiful life really is and how lucky I am to have so much love in my life & to have a healthy body, so what if I over indulged so what if I’m tired .. I’m human! I’m telling myself It’s okay to not okay, and there’s no need compare your issues; my feeling down seemed so petty compared to some “real” issues. it’s super important to remember the little things you are grateful for, baby puppy thanks for Reminding me of a fundamental life lesson 💛

This weeks #ThankfulThursday is to one of my oldest and dearest friends Miss Willey - @bekawilley. I'll never forget our days at university, I've never met anyone who can drink a jagerbomb quicker than you, I learnt very quickly to stop challenging you, I never win! But what inspires me most about you is how much you care about people in the world, and about your friends and family. @enactus and social enterprise has been your life since I can remember and it hasn’t stopped :) You're always there for me when I'm having a shit day, you always listen to my crazy ideas and encourage my crazy spontaneous life whilst often given me a sensible view just incase I want to listen to it. I'm very proud of you for getting your new job helping freelancers grow their companies, can't think of a better role for you! I’m incredibly grateful to have you in my life, thank you for being you. 💛⠀ ⠀ C x x x⠀ •⠀ We’ve started this series because I couldn’t do this crazy rollercoaster called life without some amazing humans.

Earlier this week I posted a quote that my dad said to me when I was younger “work harder on yourself than you do on your business” and this got me reflecting on how incredibly lucky I am that I have parents who have supported me and in fact encouraged my crazy, risk taking attitude since I was a little‘un. 💛 When I was 14 I used to tell my Dad to turn off his achievers edge tapes to play Kerrang radio. Then when I was 15 I told him to turn off Kerrang and play those interesting tape things... Listening to personal development from such a young age sparked my curiosity for life, curiosity to find out who I am and my deep desire to create my own life and my own business. 🌟 My dad made sure I worked hard for everything as he knew I was hungry to succeed. As a kid I had 3 jobs and learnt the value of money and how important grit and determination are! He handed me “Rich Dad Poor Dad” teaching me about investments as one of my first ever books and encouraged me to follow my passions and not take the conventional route. 📚 He recognised who I was from a young age and didn’t try to change me. He encouraged me to be the best version of me and for that I’m truly thankful. I know he loved me no matter what but to see his face when I’m on stage or when he visits the office is priceless. Thanks Pappa P for being my biggest inspiration and my cheerleader since the moment you made me :) love you! 💙 Sometimes we take our parents and loved ones for granted I know I do all the time so take today to thank then tell them you love them, after all they made you! That alone is pretty damn incredible. • • • We’ve started this series because I couldn’t do this crazy rollercoaster called life without some amazing humans.

A week today I was in Barcelona as I was a #keynotespeaker for @ibtmevents 🎤 I had such an amazing time being on stage and sharing my learnings with those in the audience. I had some great conversations with some lovely people after my talk as well, including some press. Thank you to everyone who came to see me, I hope to be invited again to speak soon ☺️ Let me know if you were there, I’d love to connect with you! 💛
Work harder on yourself than you do on your business. Wise words that my dad taught me when I was a little‘un. I always went to courses to learn more about business and I LOVE learning new stuff but I didn’t quite listen properly. I was working hard on my knowledge on how to run a business not quite working hard on myself in the way this was meant. • • • So course after course I gained more knowledge but kind of lost who I am. Recently I’ve been working harder on myself, discovering what I love, having fun, understanding emotional intelligence and how to communicate with others... and guess what? The business benefits too.. Funny that! So thanks Pappa P for all your great advice. 💛
December is finally here! I’m so excited that the festive season is upon us. I’m spending the weekend with family and friends - we’re off to Winter Wonderland and stopping by the @inkpact Scribe Tribe party! What are you up to this weekend? 🎄🤶🏻

Today for my #ThankfulThursday I am thanking the wonderful Lorena @lorena.inaflash I am so thankful this lady came into my life and I still can’t quite believe she came into Inkpact as an intern. I remember the time I sat down with her and I couldn’t work out why she’d applied for an internship. She struck me as someone who was so courageous, confidently making a bold decision in her life, she was making a big career change and seemed to love what Inkpact did. 🖋 When I first sat down and had coffee with her I remember her saying to me “I know I’ve applied for an internship but please don’t teach me like an intern.” 📒 She’s helped inkpact go from strength to strength to strength. She started off as the Community Intern and headed up Head of Operations - running a very large part of our company and has helped grow Inkpact to what it is today. Very sadly for us, Lorena has been offered an amazing opportunity and her last day at Inkpact was yesterday. She’s moving onto the next chapter of her life and I couldn’t be more excited for her. 💛 She has left her mark on the business, she has been my partner in crime in many ways, she’s been my spirit super soul sister and we’ve had lots of exciting, very whacky conversations. She’s been my internal coach, one of my closest friends and best business allies. I’m so thankful she came into my life and I know she will never leave it. 🌟 Lorena, thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you for all your hard work and effort over the past three and a half years. Good luck in your new role, you will be sorely missed. Lots of love xxxxxxx ❤️ We’ve started this series because I couldn’t do this crazy rollercoaster called life without some amazing humans. But sometimes we forget to take the time to thank them and be grateful for them in our lives.

Body Confidence....something I’ve struggled with my whole life ... the more I got on stage and in front of the camera the worse it got. . So one day I just decided enough is enough, that little voice is controlling my life and I have to remove its power. Now don’t get me wrong I have days where I go back and the voice is louder than ever, but I want my thoughts to be creative, I want my thoughts to create good stuff not ruin precious moments thinking about how I look. . There is no magic answer to making yourself feel good in your own body, and I still haven’t cracked it yet but all I know is it’s the one you have right now. It’s truly magical it keeps me alive without me doing anything.. I’m so horrible to it yet it keeps my heart beating the least I can do is show it a little more love 💛 . How many of you also have that voice that just won’t shut up? How do you quieten it down? How awesome is this iconic boob Charitee from @neverfullydressed 🙏🏻💥✨🙋🏼♀️

What's the best way to delight a customer I hear you ask? ⠀ 💫⠀ The concept of delight is to provide a remarkable experience to your customers that focuses solely on their needs, interests and wishes. You need to leave them so satisfied, that they can’t help but go out and SIIIING the praises of your brand. (I know you all just sang the word sing then, don't try and deny it)⠀ 📣⠀ Why not start delighting your customers by sending a handwritten letter and a gift? I know a GREAT company that can help with that 😉 If you want to start delighting your customers, check out @inkpact - a human-to-human marketing company with a difference. ⠀ 🖋️ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ • ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #delight #delightyourcustomers #delightful #flashesofdelight #constantdelight #delighted #flashofdelight #delighting #delightfulstories #positivevibes #bemorehuman #beunforgettable #womeninbiz #womeninbusiness #girlboss #womenwithambition #womensupportingwomen #womeninspiringwomen #businessleader #femaleentrepreneur #creativepreneur #professionalspeaker #keynotespeaker #femalespeaker #femaleCEO #femalefounder #havecourage #beauthenticallyyou #spreadkindness #charlottepearce
