Are you ready to create your own vision of a successful and fulfilling life?
Do you want to run your life and your business with more clarity, confidence and ease?
Then you’ve come to the right (write!) place.
I’m Elle Turner, a writer, business mindset mentor and course creator who helps intelligent, compassionate entrepreneurs and creatives find the clarity, confidence and energy to build their business so that they can achieve success, fulfilment and impact through the work they want to bring to the world.
Does any, or all, of this sound familiar?
- You know you could do so much more with your life, but you’re stuck.
- You feel unfulfilled and creatively stifled in your life and work and unsure what to tackle first.
- You feel let down by the 9-5 you work so hard for, but that doesn’t allow you the autonomy, flexibility or freedom to manage your other, and frankly more important to you, responsibilities, like your family
- You feel that your longed-for business start up isn’t the solution you expected it to be because you feel uncertain and overwhelmed
- You’re scared that branching out on your own will be (or has been) a mistake because you lack confidence, fear that you’re not good enough, don’t know enough or are just plain old deluded to want what you want
I thought so, and I get it. I get it SO MUCH, because that was me too.
I knew I wanted to start my own business so that I could have the autonomy and achievement that I longed for but, when I did, I discovered that every self-doubt, worry or fear I could have had, showed up and decided to hold a permanent dance party in my head, heart and gut.
I knew I could do it, somewhere deep inside but, at the same time, I feared I couldn’t and I didn’t know how to get past that gut-wrenching, heart-breaking stumbling block.
It’s since then that I discovered what I now believe unequivocally to be true, to achieve our vision of personal success and fulfilment, we need to do the inner work necessary to enable us to do the external work we desire.
The external work, aka what we ‘DO’ is the easier bit. It’s achieving clarity, maintaining a supportive mindset and taking action from a place of self-assuredness that makes or breaks our ability to DO anything at all.
So, what did I do?
I turned to writing – both fiction and journaling. I’d already journaled off and on for years and, as an introverted, stationery-loving bookworm, didn’t know what to do other than to turn to a blank notebook to “think things through”. Without really realising what I was doing initially, I began to get to know myself better. I learned how I react to situations, clarified what I want and don’t want and made inroads into shifting the balance of my life towards what matters to me most.
And now, whenever I want to CREATE a change to better my situation, THINK something through or, most importantly, EXPLORE and shift the unhelpful mindset and thought patterns that hold me back in my business and in my life, putting pen to paper is always my first step.
You can read my story here but, the short version is, I developed a practice of Journaling for self-development to help me in my business and now my journal is a powerful tool for cultivating and managing a business mindset.
By introducing you to my unique Success Journaling framework that uses the elements of fiction (Character, Setting Dialogue etc) as a structure for your personal growth, I want to help you gain the clarity, cultivate a supportive mindset and take action to move your life and business forward so that you know and believe that you are capable of creating what you want, in the way that you want to and so that you can have the success, fulfilment and impact you desire.
What is the Success Journaling framework?
Think of the main character in a book you love.
Broadly speaking, chances are that, at the beginning of their story, they want something from life that they haven’t got, but that really matters to them.
Throughout their story they grow and change, learning more about themselves and who they are along the way.
By the end of the story, even though it’s not been without challenge, the character’s life is enhanced, they feel achievement, a sense of peace or happiness originally missing from their days and you know they’re going to move onwards and upwards from there.
That’s a simplistic way to describe one possible character arc but, when you think about it, a story needs its protagonist to learn, act and grow or the story just isn’t as good as could be.
The same is true of our own life story.
You are the main character in your life story and you’re too important to leave your happy ending to chance.
As a writer and bookworm, I love to think about the parallels between life and fiction. That’s why my method of Success Journaling uses the principles of fiction (such as character, setting, dialogue etc) as a structure for working on our self-development.
This isn’t about a fictional character, though, this is about real, live, wonderful YOU.
Everything you need is already within you. You just need the Success Journaling tools to help get it out.
3 MISTAKES KEEPING YOU STUCK IN YOUR BUSINESS AND WHAT TO DO INSTEAD
I downloaded a gazillion freebies (actual number🤣 ) when I was starting my business, but this is the one I wish I’d had access to because, with it, I could have avoided my mistakes.
That’s why I created this.
I made these mistakes, but you don’t have to.
