Whats up August?
August already! How did that happen? I always get itchy feet at this time of year, I become a bit restless, like I need to take stock and remember where I'm going and if I'm on track or not. Are you the same? I find a great tool to measure balance is the wheel of life. So this weekend, I'll be taking some time, probably with a glass of wine, to re-visit my favourite tool and see what's going on and what I can do to re-address my goals for the next six months. Feel free to download and share your experiences in The Community. We also have a new worksheet available called My Fabulous Month Ahead, designed to create, ahead of time your best month ever. Not a Community member yet? You can pick up a copy here.
It's been a crazy busy week here at CEO HQ, we have so much happening in the background and I just wanted to give you all a little overview as to what we've got going on for you.
Our team is expanding, this is cause for major excitement! We have a brand new Guest Editor in our midst, the fabulous Natalie Trice. You may have met Natalie via some of our social posts already but if not, now is an excellent time to take a look at her and her brilliant PR School located in The Workroom. Natalie joins our already busting-with-creativity team and we are thrilled to have her.
We also have four really quite spectacular Guest Contributors on board, if you've been here a while you'll know we only bring you the very best so you're going to want to check them out.
First up we've got our resident fitness and nutrition expert and Virtual Wellness Studio author Melissa Jones. Melissa is a is Mama to her favourite little human Amber, as well as a passionate fitness advocate and coach. She has a diploma in sports nutrition and her passion is helping women to believe in themselves, feel empowered and amazing and achieve their personal goals through fitness and mindset, learning to love the skin they’re in and stop punishing their bodies and minds. You may have met her in our CEO magazine before now as she's contributed some great articles already but if not, nows the time!
Next up we've got you covered for all things money-related with our certified money coach Ilana Jankowitz. Ilana was born and raised in South Africa and currently resides in Zurich. Her work is all about identifying behavioural patterns around money, transforming negative thinking and moving from a self-destructive mindset to one that is positive and inspiring. Ilana is passionate about helping women to break free from self-doubt, low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence and move towards financial liberation. If you've got money blocks or want more financial abundance, Ilana is your girl! Check out herMoney Matters section of The Workroom.
As if that wasn't enough we've also brought on board Founder of the brilliant Path to Healing Therapy and Coaching, Janine Wirth. Janine's mission is to help female entrepreneurs heal their emotional baggage and unresolved emotional trauma and PTSD without spending years in therapy and create spectacular business success for themselves. You may have read her story in The Spotlight and if so you’ll know why she’s so passionate about her work, so when we got the opportunity to work alongside her every single month and provide amonthly question and answer we were thrilled! Do you have a question you would like an answer to? If so then drop Janine a line with the heading 'Ask The Female CEO' all questions can be anonymous if preferred, just let her know!
Last but definitely by no means least we have creative content genius, Claire Winter. Claire has been a content creator, journalist, and dedicated tea drinker for twenty years. She is a trained NCTJ journalist and started her career at ITN in radio and television. She is passionate about helping business owners create content that converts and she's bringing her huge range of expertise to you via her brand new section of The Workroom, Cracking Content. Claire currently writes for all 41 Families magazines that cover the UK, which reach 9 million parents a year. She has helped hundreds of large and small businesses with content marketing campaigns in print, online, and on social media.
I mean, come on! How incredible is that line-up! You'll be hearing from all TEN of us *squeal* on the website, in CEO magazine and of course in The Community (have you joined us yet?)
So what else have we got for you?
August sees a brand new entrepreneur take The Spotlight, the magical Joita Dsouza. Jonita describes herself as Feminine Lifestylist, author and creatress of Exploring Femininity, a medicine for modern-day busy women. She assists busy women to reconnect with their feminine and sensual selves in their daily lives so that they can begin to experience more energy, fulfilment and pleasure without burning out and overwhelm. I am so happy that she has decided to share her journey with us and I can't wait for you to read all about her.

Did you know that we were featured in luxury print magazine House of Cocorecently as part of their #womenworldwide series? It was such an honour to be asked to be part of something so empowering to female entrepreneurs. If you want to read about it you can do so here. It was a lot of fun to do and if you're wondering where the brilliant photos came from, look no further than KG Photography at Bank Studio. Utterly awesome! I'll be sharing some more of their amazing work in this months CEO magazine. Watch this space!
Another exciting addition is that we are to be collaborating as media partners with some incredible business shows and conferences in 2019. These include;Implementing the Technology of Tomorrow and their Women In Tech panel debate session (just wait until you meet these women, they are incredible!) andThe Business Show in London. Both of which we will be bringing you exclusive access to, interviews and information on over the coming months.
As you can see, our brilliant platform continues to grow daily and I am beyondproud and thankful to each and every one of you for your support over the last 18 months. As many of you know, building a business from the ground up takes time, patience (not my best attribute, admittedly) and resilience not to mention a shit load of hard work! My team and I are committed to bringing you the very best. Watch out this week for all kind of new articles coming your way. We've got everything from visibility to fashion and style to ditching diet culture and creating incredible content (and pretty much everything in-between).

Until next week CEO's
