​​I'm sure you've read more than enough advice on how to have a 'New Year, New You', so instead I've put together a list of Business Tips you may want to make use of. I've learnt these by looking after over 100 clients in 2017, by having sessions with business coaches and by committing to continuous self development and learning through reading books, attending workshops and watching talks. I've narrowed it down to just a few quick ones that you can easily implement into your work however long you've been doing it for.

1. Do More Instagram
Instagram is very popular - you don't need reminding of that. If you're in business it's a great platform for telling your story and showing off your wares. Make it attractive and be sure to share your website link. Be consistent with your message and your branding. Follow people who interest you and they will probably follow you back. Learn how to get the best from Instagram by coming to our Instagram Breakfast .

As a happily married woman and an experienced counsellor specialising in dating and relationships, Rachael Blackmore found she was coming across the following pain points in single people:

  • Wanting a meaningful relationship but being afraid of getting close
  • Feeling ‘There’s something wrong with me’
  • Low self-worth / confidence / self esteem 
  • Fear of rejection
  • Loneliness / feeling alone
  • Friends all getting married
  • Losing hope
  • Feeling like it will never happen for them / they’ll be single forever
  • Fed up of dating sites / being treated like a ‘hook up’
  • Don’t like the holiday seasons – Christmas / Valentine's day etc
  • Sick of waiting for the right man to just ‘appear’
  • Affecting emotional health – depressed / low / frustrated / on their mind all the time

Rachael decided to create an online course to help people gain valuable insights and clarity about what goes on for them in relationships and why they haven't worked in the past. She enables them to become ready to attract The One so that they can finally experience unconditional love, have that special someone with whom they can share life's ups and downs, and who they can see themselves happily and contentedly growing old with.

The course has been written to help specifically with:
  • Understanding who you are in relationships in order to be the best version of yourself and attract your ideal partner
  • Becoming happier and more fulfilled
  • No longer feeling a mixture of happiness and envy as you watch friends settle down
  • Feeling more confident, assured and empowered
  • Finding someone special to share things with 

As a relationship coach, Rachael's passion lies in helping you to be the best version of yourself possible and live the life you dream of. She will guide you on your journey of self-discovery to find out exactly who you are and how you can create the kind of life you would love to live, with your perfect match by your side. If your happiness and contentment is something you want to commit to and you'd like her to accompany you on the first part of your exciting adventure - now is the time to get in touch with her and begin to change your world.

If you are fed up with your current situation and are looking for a little support in finding out what's going on for you and why you're still single, here is where you can start finding reasons, answers and most importantly, solutions. 

Rachael works with women who are successful in most areas of life but can't seem to figure out why their relationships aren't working out in the way they hoped.

Here's what she says: 'I know that you want to meet the love of your life. I know what it would it mean to you to have someone to share wonderful moments with you or just look after you when you are feeling ill or down. I know that you are sick to death of feeling like the only person without a plus one at weddings and celebrations.
I focus on helping you explore yourself and your patterns of behaviour in relationships. By doing this you'll develop a greater awareness of yourself and increase your self esteem so you can love yourself first. This in turn will allow you to love and be loved - the basis of all satisfying and successful relationships. I truly believe that by developing your awareness of yourself and working on your self worth, you will be empowered to become the best version of yourself so that you can attract the partner and the relationship, you deserve. I also work with people who are currently in a relationship but are feeling dissatisfied or unhappy. I can help you to work out what's going on in order to move forward with confidence in whatever direction you believe is best. Today is the perfect day to begin creating the life you desire!'

Have a look at the testimonials of some of the women she has worked with who have done just that:

'I contacted Rachael after a series of unsuccessful dates. I decided I needed to change the way I was doing things. Her course has helped me to look at myself and what I want for my future. Lots of things have come up along the way which Rachael has helped me work through. The course requires effort and self-examination. Support from Rachael is always on hand. The main thing I would say is that I now look positively at my future. I was in a rush to meet someone. Now I am prepared to wait until I meet someone worth committing to. I believe that will happen. This has been the best money I've ever spent! It's a process which in itself is tremendously worthwhile. It's not a 'product' to me in that I am not buying an end product. It's worth it for the process I'm going through. Thank you.'   Catherine

'The biggest challenge I faced in 2016 which is when I started my sessions with Rachael, was that I had turned 40 the year prior and taken a three month sabbatical through the summer. So far, so privileged! However even after just my first two sessions with Rachael, I think I had hit the nail on the head. With her help to focus my thoughts I realised that I had lost focus on my life and with the milestone of turning 40 and achieving a goal that I had been working towards since I turned 30 having taken up most/all of my thoughts combined with a successful career, I hadn't really focused enough on me. I was sceptical at first but it felt good to discuss, identify and work through issues in a structured way with Rachael asking questions encouraging me to answer truthfully and look at my life and consider what and how to change it for the positive. Although at first I felt exposed emotionally I did feel as though I was in safe hands with someone I could trust and thought was credible. Over the course of the few weeks Rachael helped me identify the areas I needed to work on and continue to work on. Rachael helped me to take on the elusive work/life balance and actually make positive changes including a decision to relocate from London to Manchester. With the reading materials and course videos I was encouraged to develop my mindset to a more positive one and employ that on a day to day basis and realise the power of that. What Rachael really excelled at was asking very pertinent, personal yet sensitive questions that helped me come to my own conclusions but once I had put those thoughts out there, she helped me organise them and also address any issues that came to light including low self-esteem and a sense of being lost. She introduced coping mechanisms and helped with analysing why past relationships hadn't worked out. What I learned is that it isn't just about relationships but how I view myself. Writing the journals and reading the recommended text at first felt alien and time consuming but actually it really helped build on those things I need to work on and identify when I was having a good or a bad day. Grasping the coping mechanisms and employing them in everyday life, realising why I needed closure and how to try and feel more positively about my last relationship ending was and is a game changer. I'm actually looking forward to dating again! What's fallen into place for me is that this is a process and not a quick fix. What Rachael did was provide a catalyst for positive change in my life that involved careful consideration, thought and work. It's not just about finding The One but putting the best version of myself out there and being open to every possibility. Hopefully the by-product of this in the future will be a successful, fulfilling relationship!'   Marjory B

Rachael says: 'I don't believe in gimmicks – this course is based on the knowledge I have gained through my experience as a counsellor, studies and practice. Not shallow ‘American’ crap about flirting techniques or how to ‘drive him wild with one text’ etc. It’s about a real transformation from the inside. I only want to work with committed, motivated people who want to take action.'

My tips are relatively simple one but if you add them to your daily routine you will notice a difference in the way how your body feels. 


  • Drink more - WATER 💦 
  • Stretch regularly - add few stretches to your morning routine. 
  • Exercise - why not do few squads each time to go to the bathroom? 


  • If you suffer with anxiety you may find that things like meditation, mindfulness, visualisation work for you. 
  • Movement is importnant but you need to make sure that you do it in the way your body and mind are happy - try candlelit yoga or small exercise groups. 
  • And finally - make sure that you educate yourself. The monster that we know is less scary than the one that we do not know!
