Blessed {thank you}

Its taken me a few days to get time to sit down and write this.

Firstly, a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped me with my crowdfunding campaign… it was a SUCCESS!  & I cannot even begin to describe how grateful I am to you. Words cannot portray the love & gratitude I feel in my heart.

‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ Harriet Tubman 

The truth is, it was a big risk {and scary as hell}, to put myself and my brand out there and just say ‘hey, I need your help’.

As mush as we say its ok to ask for help, how often do we? Yet instead most of us chose to act strong & like everything is perfect with our rose tinted glasses on.

I can honestly say, something had to change for me. This made my decision about the launching the campaign. I couldnt keep doing the little things I was doing, working harder not smarter and making slow progress (yes, progress is still progress). But I knew I was close to burn out.

‘Oh, I was never a businessman. I was a visionary, a dreamer.’ Jim Bakker

With my business, its never had a $ of investment, instead it was created from a need to pay my own living costs and grow itself. & truth be told I love this about my story. I dont even have a credit card so I can instead chose to grow organically. Now, this is great & all, but it can also mean that growth may be slower, or in my case I was struggling to keep up with the growth & needs of my clients (more so on a time limit).

‘I think of myself not just as a dreamer, but as a dream chaser’. Sarah Brightman

So because of you, & my leap of faith, today Im sending of the brand new packaging to China for my first sample…

I AM IN LOVE…

 

New packaging front

 

What do you think? {The Muscle Ball range is Mint Green & the display box is Kraft cardboard}

You see, what you have done, by showing me love, pre ordering & sharing my campaign, is restore my faith (that was getting a little tired from hrs of exhausting myself & Adrenal Fatigue) that I am exactly where I need to be, doing exactly what I should be doing (my recent Angel reading also said this). Youve shown me that there is a need for a product like mine (1 year of business also shows this), and that together, we, the people can make a change. This is EXCITING.

You know just the other day I read an article that McDonalds is losing money… This is success. WE can create a change by learning to love ourselves and  make healthy changes. By learning to listen to our bodies. Instead of focusing on the things you dont like, focus on the things you do and all the good you are blessed with.

dreamer2

Because of the campaign success, I also decided its time to STEP up my game, and my own health so I can be the very best I can be. No more excuses. No more mistreatment of my body (too much sugar, not enough self love). Its time to honour the beautiful body I was created with & give it everything it needs to give me what I need. You eat well, you feel well…such a good circle.

For me, & for my business, but for you. Anyone that takes the time to read my blogs and share my journey with me.

Because I have BIG dreams & I believe in them with every essence of my being. YOU have given me a new opportunity to shine (I CANNOT WAIT TO RELEASE THE NEW PRODUCT).

dreamer3

And Im doing the work. So many people say they want to do their own thing, but their not prepared to do the work. Not prepared to get up an hr earlier, go to bed an hr later, say no to social engagements & commit themselves fully to their dream.

I am. The next 3 months I have given myself to do everything I can to bring a better & improved product & company to you. Regardless of the weekends missed, I know what Im running towards, the dreams that are becoming my reality. Im prepared to go without do my business can go with.

Can you see yours? Do you know where your going? What are you running towards???

Its so easy to get confused & off track, I mean theres so much competition out there & entrepreneurship isnt easy. But if you believe, even 2 steps forward, 1 step back…sideways or upside down…it doesnt matter. Your headed in the right direction. Trust, faith & believe in yourself always.

‘There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.’ Colin Powell

My current frame of mind is taking from one of the greatest businessmen in history; Henry Ford, who knew nothing about the Steel industry but built a team around him of people who were experts with what they knew so he could do what he did best. And its a pretty special place to be, to be able to have a business coach (who makes me do homework & get out of my own mind), a graphic designer to bring a professional product to you, a lawyer to get everything that needs to be done, done, an accountant to look after all my figures, an intern to do the little things and today interviewing staff for the kitchen, so I can do what I love doing & do best… including writing, coaching & being the dreamer I am.

‘Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.’ Gail Devers

I am blessed & grateful. Thank you.

Love & light, Charlie x.

Because together, we can make a change in the world.

Good business. Bad business.

As an amateur in working for myself, all I can say is I’m trying.

business5

I make a f^+k load of mistakes as proof of this. I dont claim to be perfect. Just real.

‘Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.’ Steve Jobs

My social media sites & the way I speak about my business (generally in an over enthusiastic, can’t shut me up, passionate way) is not so much a look at me ‘I’m doing so well’ it’s more from a quiet confidence, from a belief I have in myself and my dream…a confidence I am earning everyday & working dam hard for. I have been tested, I mean everyday I still am, and Ive definitely be tried. I do believe that every mistake is an opportunity to learn from and be better.

Now, I’ve been a business development manager for reputable companies, all respectively leaders in their own fields, for the past ten years and would say I’ve learnt a little about how to do good business, compared to the opposite that is bad business, although I’ve definitely learnt some of that to.

Im not saying what I believe is the right way, or the wrong way. I’m simply sharing with you my personal beliefs (as always within my blog).

‘The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.’ Peter Drucker

Every day I speak to entrepreneurs (this is also the latest fad word), perhaps a better word is the dreamers, the game changers, the crazy ones that believe they can make a change (and yup I’m one and proud). A common complaint is the ‘imitation’ of your brand and product. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…who made that up? Imitation is just dam irritating. I mean, isn’t there enough dreams in the world? Can’t you have your own??? It was only yesterday I was speaking to someone who had someone close to her, who she had confided in basically take her idea.
Dissapointment levels….high.
Heartbreak…disaster.

The fact that they cannot build what you have with your passion and purpose…priceless.

You see at the end of the day…you are your brand. FULLSTOP.

business4

I am my brand hence my post the other and every week about my struggles and my growing trust in myself and life. My personal brand and my Clean Treats brand is about being real, not fake (so much so, I no longer use artificial beauty enhancers such as Botox or Lip plumps).

It’s not that I don’t get affected by brands, or specific people directly targeting my clients. Of course I do.
But it is business. I understand this.
I’m only trying. In some circumstances I’ve left the door wide open for this to occur, basically handing my competitions my (much valued) clients on a silver lined platter. Why have I done this? Because I want to share love (another brand belief) of course not, but because I’m only me. Im learning every day & as above, making a f^%kload of mistakes along my way. Where this may have occurred is only an opportunity for me to create better systems for myself and my clients to minimise this. I am only learning.

‘There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.’ Sam Walton

Good business…just do you. Do your own thing and stop the market research. As tempting as it is. I know Ive done it and wasted several hours of the most precious commodity we have; time…lost in a deep virtue making myself contemplate why am I even trying to do what I do. Sure, I realise its important to know whats out in the market, but is it really? Im much happier when Im in my own Clean Treats bubble, doing what I want when I want. Listening to my clients and consumers as feedback for improvement and growth.

‘Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.’ Andy Warhol

Respect that your competitors are also people. R.E.S.P.E.C.T

Whatever they do really has no effect to you or your brand if your committed to our own progression and listening to the passion within your own heartbeat.

No one is you. When you feel threatened (and I definitely have) by another company or person…this is only a sign that the belief in your own brand is weakened. It means its time to stop for a moment and revisit your core values.

Why are you doing what you do. What is your brand about. Who are you.

There are many products on the market, and the best news is the health industry is growing. Whether you are a health coach, speaker, product or marketing agency this also means that competition is on the rise.

Trust your brand. If you are doing it for the right reasons (Clean Treats is about making a healthy change in the world, 1 #ball at a time and I believe this with every essence of my being) then what is right for you and your business will come to you. (But dont forget to work hard for it).

‘To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.’ Sr. Thomas Watson

Bad business.

I’m sure we all know what I’m going to write here.

Disrespect. Dishonesty. Slander. Attack. Etc…Etc. You know if you’re doing bad business,that little thing called your conscious will tell you.

business7

I just want to be respected. Simple.

Im doing what I believe in. When I step out of line or away from my core values, Im quick to realise this with mistakes that direct me back to my own true path.

For this pure reason I am trying to be real, I share with you my highs and my lows that if we meet in person Im exactly who you see in my words and social media pages.

Clean Treats is exactly as its branded. Simple. Real not fake. I dont say they are the healthiest, full of superfood, eat one and it will change your life product (I do however say trade your afternoon chocolate bar for a ball each day for a week and you will feel the difference, and after eating one of my #love balls compared to packaged product you WILL feel a difference).

‘Look well to this day. Yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day.’ Francis Gray

Just do you.

Love & light, Charlie x.

Create a world of support around you, of people who believe in and help you and your business. Support the people that support you.

(Do you know whats interesting, its actually the people who arent closest to me who actually help me the most…Interesting).

Monday Motivation…Beautiful Minds

You know when you meet people and you just feel ‘WOW’. Marina Passalaris is one of those types of people that make you instantly fall in love with the way her smile lights her face, the depth in her words and the manner in which she acts.

I have been lucky enough to work with Marina & her beautiful program for teenage girls. Something that I am extremely passionate about as a once delinquent teenager.

Its designed to educate teenagers and their parents how to achieve happiness through vital life skills, self-esteem, confidence building and grooming.

‘I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.’ Audrey Hepburn

Charlie: You are a successful business woman and the creator of Beautiful Minds, what do you attribute this success to?

Success is very simple..it boils down to having a clear vision, being lazer focused, working incredibly hard and knowing that giving up is neither a choice or an option.

Charlie: When did you decide to you wanted to be involved in the wellness industry?

I spent 15 years working as a grooming and deportment educator and make up artist in some of the top modelling agencies in Cape Town, London, Germany and Australia. This industry is known for negatively affecting girl’s confidence. I realised that there was a real need to educate girls more about their emotions and well-being. I wanted to achieve this by doing the Beautiful Minds courses in an environment that was conducive to all girls of any size and from any background, not just model ‘wanna be’s’. I wrote a program that I wish I had done as a young girl. It covers everything about being a teen girl in today’s society. Beautiful Minds has been a vision of mine for many years. I want to show young girls that they are beautiful inside and out.

Charlie: What inspired you to follow your passion?

If you know what your passion in life is, what your purpose is and what you want your legacy to be, you will pursue it with everything you have.

Charlie: How do you feel as an inspirational figure/mentor?

I don’t look at myself as an inspirational figure as that has a tendency to place me on a pedestal. It is more about the sharing of knowledge and passing this onto my Beautiful Minds students in the hope they will go on to create incredible lives for themselves.

‘Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.’ Norman Vincent Peale

happy1

 

Charlie: Has there been any challenges along your journey?

I would say rising above the ‘rip offs’. What I mean by this is that when you have a successful company, other individuals try and copy exactly what you are doing. I have had this experience and the blatant copying is rather outrageous. I have learnt to take it as a weird compliment that we must be doing something right. I also ensure that the business model changes and constantly improves so we are always top of our game.

‘You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.’ Albert Camus

Charlie: How do you maintain balance between your Career and personal health?

find it a bit of a juggle at times but as I am getting older, I am really starting to invest more in my health. I try and have one full day off a week, I eat really clean food and I try to exercise as often as possible. I have started having regular massages and putting time aside for me to just be still and to unwind.

Charlie: What do you believe are the keys to success in business?

You have to give people an incredible experience. They are buying into a feeling, how you make them feel when they have finished doing business with you. That is imperative. Under promise and over deliver.

Charlie: What is your advice for anyone who has a dream?

We all have dreams but there is a huge difference between having a dream and taking small steps towards making this dream a reality. Be fearless, take action and chase the dream so it becomes a reality. Women are incredible, we are much stronger than we give ourselves credit for! Go after the life you desire. It may not be easy, but it will be worth it. I understand that fear stops people from doing many things but if your desire is stronger than your fear, you will find a way to do it.

Charlie: What can we look forward to next from you?

As the business has been going for 8 years, it has evolved over time. Beautiful Minds is about to totally change the way we educate young girls and we are in the process of setting up a very exciting event for girls aged 11 – 17. This event will be at The Paddington Town Hall on Saturday 6th September and is a full day jam packed with celebrities, guest speakers, dance troupes, music, dj’s and so much more! The aim of the day is to educate, inspire and entertain our youth. We have 550 tickets and these go on sale on April 10th. This event will then be rolled out Australia wide. There are so many incredible things happening in the Beautiful Minds office at the moment and the growth of the company is extremely exciting.

‘Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.’ William E. Gladstone

Charlie: Top 3 healthy tips/advice?

1: Every night, I listen to positive affirmations or subliminal music that will positively feed my mind as I fall asleep. I believe in training the mind every single day. We are all taught to exercise our bodies for at least 30 minutes every day. We need to do the same with our minds. This will significantly slow down the mental chatter as you re-program your mind to think positively.

2: Drink lots of water and get adequate sleep each night

3: Eat healthy, clean food. Your body and mind will thank you for it.

I sincerly thank Marina for her time. If you know of anyone who would like to attend her events, or if you would like to stay up to date with her classes and seminars available (there is a course starting next week):

Raw Chocolate Protein Mousse

Thursday Treat!

I should let you in on a secret…I have a love affair with food…every single type of food, I absolutely delight in its pleasure. Now as I am currently preparing for a Fitness Model competition, I am monitoring my daily intake, Macros (food qualities) and Insulin levels, so my sweet treats are now a weekly treat. Needless to say, I get (just a LITTLE) excited when its my Sunday relax, rest & TREAT day.

You may have seen or heard of people who completely binge eat when they get their ‘cheat’ meal, eating to the point of distension and disgust with yourself (yes, I have experienced this). I now prefer a ‘treat’ meal; something that is rewarding for my body, yet still as clean as possible, rather than a dirty ‘cheat’ meal.

“A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement”  Jess C. Scott

choc2

Treat Vs Cheat:

Treat: an event or item that is out of the ordinary and gives great pleasure.

Cheat: act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage.

The words alone have immense psychological difference…You treat yourself as a reward for your hard work (followed by satisfaction, sense of wellbeing and contentment), you cheat because you feel restricted (which is then followed by guilt, disappointment, and regret).

“It’s up to you today to start making healthy choices. Not choices that are just healthy for your body, but healthy for your mind.”   Steve Maraboli

Add all filling ingredients (Avocados, Raw Cacao, Rice Syrup, Vanilla, Balsamic vinegar, Protowhey and water) into the food processor, process until you get a thick mousse consistency. *If you want to make this ‘cleaner; use 1 cup water instead of the Rice Syrup, you may need to add 1 tsp of coconut oil for consistency).

Spread the Mousse mix evenly over the base.

Freeze for 2 hrs. Remove from freezer 10 minutes prior to serving.

DELISH!

Guilt Free Clean Caramel Slice

A Caramel Slice with no guilt? Is this possible?!

Well, as I am getting a little creative in the kitchen, I made a RAW, Sugar free, Gluten free and Diary free Caramel Slice over the weekend, it wasn’t too bad but my creative mind was thinking; how could this be better

The answer…Proto Whey Protein!

A Caramel slice including Protein, Good Essential Fatty acids, antioxidants and natural sugarsMAGIC (excellent energy source before a workout)!

your stomach shouldn't be a waste basket 1

For those that know me, I have had a love affair with the protein that is Proto Whey (BNRG), and have actually had to break up with the delightful deliciousness that it is! (But, just for you my lovely readers, I revisited my love, and wow, still as good as it always has been!)

So, the Guilt Free Clean Caramel Slice Recipe….

phvetgroto

Ingredients:

*Try to use Organic where possible.

Base:

3/4 cup organic Walnuts

3/4 cup organic Almonds

1 Medjool date

2 Scoops Vanilla Proto Whey (I used The Pept 1 version for Thermogenic effects)

3 Tbsp Coconut oil (Good fats)

1 Tbsp manuka honey (or Rice Malt syrup)

1 Tbsp water

Caramel filling :

10 x Medjool dates

1 Pinch of Himalayan Salt

1 Tbsp Manuka Honey or Rice Malt Syrup (Sugar free)

2 Tbsp Coconut oil

Chocolate topping:

2 x Scoops Chocolate Proto Whey (again, I used the Pept 1 version for thermogenic qualities)

1Tbsp Cacau (Antioxidant)

1 Tbsp Coconut oil

1 Tbsp water

ht4y

Method:

Base: throw all ingredients in a food processor, mix until well blended. Press into a lined tray or plastic moulds (available in cooking stores or online, you can even get cute shapes).

Caramel: throw all ingredients in the food processor, mix. You will need to stop on several occasions to break up the caramel, until you get a nice even consistency. Spread over the base.

Topping: in a bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended (add more water if the icing is to thick, I am a chocolate lover) and smooth over the Caramel layer.

Place into the freezer for 30 minutes and ENJOY.

NBB: don’t forget to share your lovingly made creation with friends and family (sharing is caring), and sometimes we all need a sweet treat.

*I nominated myself for best Area Manager and delivered these little goodies to some of my clients (gets me periodically in the good books).
