Time to reflect on 2014

I am so blessed to reflect back at this time of year and be totally grateful for everything in our lives .. It’s been a truly outstanding year,with ups and downs ,yet even through the challenging times they teach us new life’s lessons and we find out more about ourselves and what we are capable of becoming – to stretch us, to grow us , to help us become an even better, even kinder person.

“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings


I am so blessed to have some amazing friendships, friends I have known forever as well as some fantastic recent ones that will be true friends for life!blessings

Thanks to my Fabulous Juice Plus team – for everything we have worked together this year and boy oh boy just wait to see how we are going to make 2015 !!

CHRISTMAS is not only an important time to reflect on the year past – but to look ahead to the new year too. What are looking to change? Change yourself for the better and as you change, things will start to change for you.

Transformation – it’s great! Don’t be afraid to transform into a person you feel comfortable with. Thinking with your heart will lead you in the right direction.

This life can truly be lived .. Travelling the world , sharing fun crazy times , helping to make the world a better place ..

Why you need network marketing today!

Regular readers of the blog know I run a very successful coaching consultancy; I passionately care about helping people and businesses become the best they can be. I relish everyday in my business but I recognised that I was in a vulnerable position. I had a business which produced linear income, I do the work, I get paid. If I don’t do that work, guess what? I don’t get paid!Juice plus experince

When I was introduced to network marketing a few years ago, it made total sense to me. Here was an opportunity to build a second business, part-time alongside my consultancy business but instead of swooping time for money, I can do the work once and get paid forever! I now strongly believe that building a network marketing business in today’s economy is one of the smartest moves you can make!

“I would rather make 1 percent on the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent on my own efforts.”

J. Paul Getty

That is essentially the philosophy of network marketing. You can leverage your time and increase the number of hours of work effort on which you can be paid by sponsoring other people and earning a small income on their efforts. With network marketing there are no overheads, no massive start up costs, no geographic limitations, no special qualification’s needed, just a belief in yourself and the will to succeed.

If nothing else get involved with network marketing for the personal development alone! Network marketing attracts the very best people, learn from them! Network marketing companies provide amazing training opportunities for you to grow as a person and opens your eyes to the life you could lead!

Living A Rich and Rewarding Life

I am humbled and amazed in my network marketing business everyday from the people who have changed their lives with this business opportunity. I could tell you so many stories of people from all walks of life overcoming different challenges but determined to succeed. To become successful, you have to help other people become successful. It’s very rewarding to watch other people grow and become better people.

There are many network marketing companies, my only advice is to find a product that resonates with you, something you can be passionate about! And chose a company with a tried and tested system, preferably one that has a few years behind them. That way you know it has longevity! I choose The Juice Plus Personal Franchise as I love the products and believe in a healthy body, healthy mind so it fit perfectly with me!

I leave you with a few questions:

Do you want to retire rich?

Would you like an income that builds itself?

Would you like more recognition and appreciation?

Answer YES to any of those questions then networking marketing could be for you!

Healthy body, Healthy mind – when do you make time for your health?

keep calm and juiceI understand the link between a health body, healthy mind, the two are intrinsically linked. Through my coaching business I am working on the mind and through my health and nutrition business I work on the body! I have accumulated I fast amount of knowledge over the years but you never stop learning on this wonderful journey called life! I work extremely hard and I love my crazy busy life but sometimes you have to take some time out for you and your health! That’s why in August I took a seven-day retreat to Juicy Oasis Boutique Health Retreat & Spa deep in the heart of Portugal. The retreat is ‘Juice Master’ Jason Vale’s Premier Retreat:

This stunning juice, yoga and fitness retreat is set deep inside Portugal and overlooks a magnificent wide flowing river and is surrounded by deep forest and far reaching mountains. Juicy Oasis is not a ‘Spa Hotel’, but rather a retreat where you are taken on a very unique ‘mind and body seven-day journey’ to fully recharge, reboot and inspire you.

Jason Vale is the Juice Master!

Jason Vale has sold over 2 million books worldwide and is highly regarded as one of the most influential people in the world of juicing and health. Jason is the number one best-selling author of 10 books, DVD’s, App’s and CD’S on juicing, health, fitness and junk food addiction. Jason is also the ‘Executive Pro-juicer’ of his hugely successful and ground-breaking documentary Super Juice Me! Where Jason tests his theory that chronic disease is caused by toxicity and nutritional deficiency, and that the best way to treat disease is simply with high quality nutrition.

It’s a very empowering message, that your health is in your control! Much of the disease in the body is caused by the lifestyles and food that we eat. After-all prevention is much better than cure!

6 weeks since I was at Juicy Oasis and thrilled to report I have dropped nearly 2 dress sizes! I am doing my 5 Tibetans and rebounding every morning, Tracy Anderson DVD or Gym most days, Juicing 3 out of 7 days as a MUST and NO booze for the 6 weeks !! It definitely flicked my switch into improving my lifestyle, what will flick yours?

How can we achieve our optimal health?

I have always been interested in health and nutrition, being an ex-nurse and medically trained it’s always been a priority of mine. I spend a great deal of my time now travelling the world and helping to spread the message of health (with my Juice Plus business), my particular passion is helping children with ADHD without the use of drugs!! But that is another story; the purpose of this post is to answer the question I often get asked….

How can we achieve our optimal health?


We have to change our bad habits.  Seriously, in our fast paced modern lives we need to really take some time to get our priorities straight.

You can’t perform at your top-level if you don’t look after yourself from the inside out!

Today our biggest enemy is our lifestyle, an unbalanced diet eaten in a hurry, lack of exercise, sitting for hours at the computer terminal, and smoking and other environmental toxins as well as mental and emotional stress.  We ask our bodies to deal with many burdens and then we wonder why we get sick.

Well, you cannot control all these factors, but certainly we can become more thoughtful about some of these choices.  Optimal health comes from making optimal choices.  It is a journey.  One has to begin somewhere….

The most important actions that impact your health are daily exercise and eating more fruits and veggies – but you knew that right?

I recommend you start with looking at the food you currently eat and start looking at the nutritional content, unfortunately food produced today lacks the nutrients of food produced 30 years ago. Here are some nutrition top tips!


Tip 1 – NEVER TRUST THE FRONT OF THE PACKAGE – look for hidden truth in the ingredient list

Tip 2 –  THE FIRST INGREDIENT IS ALWAYS THE BIGGEST – product contains the most of this

Tip 3 –  IDENTIFY HARMFUL INGREDIENTS – The Dirty Dozen (Experience Life Mag., Jan. 2009)     


  1. Hydrogenated Oils (Example:  Peanut Butter)
  2. Artificial Colors (Red, Blue, Yellow, Caramel Color)
  3. Nitrites and Nitrates – can be carcinogenic
  4. Artificial sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K, Sucralose, Saccharin) or High Fructose Corn Syrup
  5. Preservatives (BHA, BHT, EDTA etc.)
  6. MSG (Monosodium glutamate)
  7. Hydrolyzed vegetable protein/ autolyzed yeast extract
  8. Potassium bromate (additive mostly in breads)
  9. Propyl gallate (additive in baked goods, desserts etc.)
  10. Sulfites(sulfur dioxide, metabisulfites, and others)
  11. Sodium nitrate(hot dogs, deli meats)
  12. Sodium benzoate or benzoic acid


Tip 5 – LOOK FOR A SHORT INGREDIENT LIST – usually means it is a much healthier choice

Tip 6 –  FIBRE IS YOUR FRIEND – lowers cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar levels, prevents colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, obesity.  Adults need 25-50 g each day!  Add 5 g to child’s age for child fibre intake. Fibre is not in processed foods or meat, milk, eggs or cheese.  If possible, choose Antibiotic/Hormone Free Dairy & Meat – means it can’t come from a farm animal treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. The use of genetic engineering, irradiation, and sewage-based fertilizer is also prohibited. Avoid Enriched foods – “Manufacturers may be overloading cereals with isolated vitamins that break down over their shelf life and can provide too much iron, folic acid, etc which may increase risk of heart disease and cancer.” (US News & World Rpt, 2001)


For the next best think to eating fruits and veg take a look at the Juice Plus Concept.


Are you getting your 5 portions of fruit and veg a day?

I started my working career as a nurse so I have always had an interest in eating healthy, ‘you are what you eat’ as the saying goes! And later as a parent I found in very difficult to get my son to eat enough fruit and vegetables no matter what tricks I tried, I used to spend hours juicing fruit, there just had to be a better way!

The a few years ago I discovered Juice Plus+:

“Juice PLUS+® is wholefood-based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 26 different fruits, vegetables and berries.
Each ingredient is specially selected to provide a broad range of nutritional benefits.

Juice PLUS+® is a complement to a healthy diet. Juice PLUS+® is the simple, convenient, and inexpensive way to add more nutrition from fruits and vegetables to your diet, every day. ”

I have included a video below which explains in more detail:

I can’t recommend Juice Plus enough, I have seen some amazing results over the years and the range of products now available and a new weight loss system which is been launched in the UK this year, it’s a very exciting time!

On the 19th August I will be speaking at a pre-lauch seminar regarding the new weight management system from Juice Plus, places are by invitation but if you would like anymore information please get in touch with me and I can reserve your place.
