SMASH Worldwide will be 2 in May and I am absolutley loving the journey that I am on with it. I actually can't believe that it is nearly 2 years from I launched my company. I have worked ridiculously long hours and there have been days when I quite literally walk out of my office and straight up the stairs to bed, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love what I do and I love helping women achieve their health goals.
For the last couple of weeks I have been working on a lot of different things within my business but one of the biggest things has been what my mission and vision is for SMASH Worldwide.
I have always known in my heart what I wanted to do with SMASH but I had never really written it down on paper. However, over the last 3 weeks I have been really focusing on this and I now have my Mission Statement printed out and laminated beside me in my office and it has inspired me!! I am more focused now than ever before. I know the direction that I am going and I know how I am going to get there.
How has it inspired me?
As you all know, back in October, I launched the original "Flab to Fab 8 Week Course" to celebrate 7 years of being introduced to a healthy maintainable lifestyle. The launch when really well and the first intake of clients completed their course with outstanding results and they are continuing to do really well with their quest for a healthier life.
However, I wasn't 100% happy with the name.
It just didn't sit right within me. I LOVED the content of the Course that I created, and how it was helping women but the name just wasn't right for what the course was all about. And because it wasn't sitting with me right, I didn't feel comfortable promoting it again.
You see, this 8 Week Course is not like other weight loss programmes out there!! I don't want to pray on women's insecurities. I don't want to make women like they have to be a certain size in order to be happy. I don't want to promote a "quick fix" and to me that was what the name portrayed.
The more I thought about it, the more I knew I had to change the name. I have been wrecking my brains to come up with one that I was really happy with and I put myself under pressure because I said I was going to launch the 8 Week Course again on International Women's Day and guess what happened?
On Saturday afternoon, I was sitting in my office going through my suggestions - oh and there were plenty - and the name just came to me!! It embraces everything about what SMASH stands for AND I got butterflies when I thought about it which is always a good sign
Let me introduce...
The SMASH Academy
I am so excited about this!
The SMASH Academy is all about education.
- It is all about helping women to understand how and why they are feeling the way that they currently are and how they can change things so they can feel better.
- It is about giving women back power in their health so they can really change their habits going forward.
- It's about helping women fall in love with themselves again and helping them not to fall victim to the health and fitness industry that pray on women's insecurities.
That is what I, and SMASH Worldwide is all about.
Someone said to me that it would take longer to build my business if I go down this route and my answer to them was, "I'm ok with that, as I know that my business is built with integrity at the heart of it, rather than just to make a quick buck". I think they were shocked.
You see I have been there done that with falling for quick gimmicks when it comes to weight loss and that is not what I want SMASH Worldwide to be.
This is about long term health and doing things properly. I want you to know that you can live a healthy life AND still enjoy your life! That way is #theSMASHway.
I know The SMASH Academy and The SMASH Way will help to change so many women's lives as it has done already. I love the transformations that have already occurred with the women that have done the 8 Week Course and I know there will be many more women that will benefit as well.
If you want to head over to the Client Testimonials page to see what some women who have gone through the course already, have said, you will see how powerful this will be.
I hope you like the new name and my mission with SMASH Worldwide and The Academy.
If you fancy seeing it yourself, feeling outstanding and discovering the best version of you, come and join the academy. You will love it!! If you know of anyone who might benefit from being part of my academy, please head over to the SMASH Academy and get access to all of the educational documents by purchasing The SMASH Way or tell them to drop me a message and I can have a chat with them.
