WITH LOUISA HERRIDGE
Write to Ignite
If the answer is YES then you need to read on!
If you are here then I’m assuming that you already have your own business or may be ready up jump into your side hustle and really ignite your impact? I am so happy that you are here and I can’t wait to be a part of your journey.
I’ve always dreamed of being a writer. And yes, you will know by now that I have published a book! I make no apology for telling you again as it has been a life -long dream.
One year around the mid-90s there was a mega downpour of snow and we were all sent home the pipes froze at school. The jubilation as we all ran out of school and pretty much the whole school joined with a snowball fight on the field (I’m sure the teachers joined in too) is still ingrained in my memory. We were off school for ages. Back then there was none of this home-schooling and ‘Teams’ or ‘Zoom’ lessons; we were free to roam and play and just be. Our whole street joined in with making an igloo on our drive. Well, everyone except me. I was about 14 and I used the time to start writing my book, ‘Lizzie.’ It was about a girl who was adopted. I locked myself away and just wrote. It was pride and joy and I declared to everyone that I had started writing my book. As the neighbourhood children frolicked and had fun in the snow, I was in the happiest place I could be. However, once GCSEs continued to roll Lizzie and I became distant friends. I often think about her now and would love to reconnect with her but sadly she is trapped in an old floppy disc!
So... how did I go from High school teacher to Number 1 best selling author, booked motivational speaker and a successful mindset and empowerment coach inspiring women in their lives and businesses in less than a year?
This year when the world stopped because of lockdown, just like in the snow of 1994 I found my comfort in writing. I reignited my blog – Blooming Daffodils and began to write. I was brave enough to put ‘Best Selling Author’ on my vision board and in November 2020 I became a published author! I published my story of overcoming adversity in the collaborative book ‘Pride’ and we topped the Amazon eBook Biography and Memoirs chart! For twenty years I had longed to be a writer – so what was stopping me? Fear!
Fear has held me back, stopped me writing and even stopped me dreaming at times. What is your fear? What would you really like to do that you have almost stopped dreaming about?
It is never too late, you are never too old – Sir Tom showed us that last year. If there’s something that you’ve always wanted to do – do it! I don’t just mean in your career. My Dad has retried and started to play the guitar. Guess the tune during Lockdown Zoom quizzes were cringy but now he is playing really well. He always dreamed of playing the guitar and now at 65 he is.
It is never too late. What’s your dream? What fire has been burning inside of you? You can make it happen. Last year I commited to writing my first book and it was published in May 2021. I am now working on my next book and keeping that dream alive.
In the last year I have dug deep, confronted my fears and limiting beliefs and trusted that I could make a difference; believed that I could inspire other women, other mamas to ignite their lives; taken action to make sure that I created IMPACT and by following my passion and purpose I have done just that.
BUT I DON’T EVEN HAVE A BUSINESS YET!
Neither did I 12 months ago.
BUT I STILL WORK FULL TIME!
So did I. I only left teaching in April 2021!
MY GROUP IS TINY, HOW CAN I MAKE IMPACT?
We all have to start somewhere!
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS HOLDING ME BACK.
We will work on that together!
I HAVE ALREADY MADE IMPACT!
Amazing! There is always room for MORE!
The light and dark of Motherhood
I have started, stopped, pivoted but kept on going. Within a few months women were telling me that I made a difference, that I inspired them. So I didn’t have a choice. My business became a mission.
How will you inspire and empower others? If you are ready for MORE then this course is for you. I have a host of bonus coaches who are at the TOP of their game joining me to deliver what will be a GAME CHANGER and the one stop course to make sure that you have the belief and tools to up-level your business IMPACT as well as supporting your own self-care, mindset and self-belief.
From feeling lost, overwhelmed and playing small to clarity, personal growth and confidence.
This course will take you from feeling lost, overwhelmed and playing small to clarity, personal growth and confidence in your business. Together we will ignite your impact.
After twelve weeks you will feel transformed with a defining confidence in yourself and your business with a strategy for growth, visibility and impact. You will be clear and in control with renewed energy and excitement for your business and life.
As a Mindset and Empowerment coach I work with women in business and women with a desire and passion who are ready for MORE. This could be by igniting your message and mission, becoming more visible or taking your first step to reinvent your life and business.
I empower women to find their spark, so that they can turn up the dial on living lives and running businesses they actually love; transforming their ironing boards into surfboards that will ride the waves of life & business with passion and purpose. (Seriously who irons anyway?)
Over the last 12 months I have built a business from scratch after pulling myself out of the depths of despair and a vortex of doom. I have reinvented my life to follow this mission and I am proud to be living out my mantra by ditching my ironing board; leaving a 16-year teaching career to lead the Mamas Ignited Movement - riding my surfboard and fulfilling my soul’s purpose to write, speak and empower.
In the last year I have studied and developed my mindfulness practices by working with world class mentors and immersing myself in an online tribe of positivity and calm. I have surrounded myself with a powerhouse group of coaches and mentors and I have learned how to show up as the real me; without apology.
I want this for you.
My mission is driven by my story and I want to help you to tap into your story and be able to speak from the scar not the wound to use your story to ignite your business.
I have had my share of adversity from chronic pain to narcissistic abuse and know how hard it can be to stop listening to your inner critic, voice of doom and the tight grip of imposter syndrome and anxiety. I understand your fear of judgement or failure; I had it too. We can work on that together.
Something that has made a massive difference to my life is learning about the Law of Attraction and I will share this with you. I use a range of coaching techniques with my main focus being MINDSET, MINDFULNESS & MOTIVATION.
I have created a signature 5-step Mindfulness System that sits at the very heart of my business and my IMPACT system gives you the tools to make sure that your message is clear, passionate and getting heard by the right people. To up-level you need to create IMPACT.
I want you to know that you can choose to
BE more, DO more and in turn HAVE more.
You have Infinite Possibilities.
Are you ready to IGNITE your SPARK & INCREASE your IMPACT?

Mum of 3 and owner of Mrs Jenkins Travelling Tea Room
With severe anxiety and stress levels, Time to Ignite has saved me. Learning to breathe, to visualise and journal have become part of my daily life. My non-negotiable time is now something I do every day and even better I can justify it mum-guilt free... I'm ignited!
Business Owner And Mother Of 2
As a busy business owner and a mum of 2 with a baby and felt I’d become disconnected with myself in the rush that life brings. I was drawn to Louisa’s course because she promised some support in building healthy ‘me time’ habits and I really needed the structure and accountability to help me do this.
Crafting our non-negotiable time for myself each week hasn’t been easy but I have hugely felt the benefits and I now know HOW to switch off, with skills I can transfer in all areas of my life. That relaxation has made me more motivated and productive in my business and a happier parent for my children.
New Business owner and
I met Louisa online around 6 months ago, she was just one of those souls I was drawn to.
When I had the opportunity to have Louisa’s eyes on my business I was over the moon. I knew she was the person to not only show me how to make an impact with my business but to set that fire and really ignite me with my mission.
I now actively encourage business owners to seek out Louisa because for me no one supports, loves and guides you through the murky waters of business better than her!
Forever Grateful xx
GET READY TO CREATE IMPACT!
Self-sabotage, childhood experiences and relationships often leave us in a state of Fight, Flight, Freeze and Fawn and by using the five elements in the Ignite your Spark course you will also begin to understand what your pain-points are to actively use the Mind and Body techniques on a daily basis too. The tools and techniques provided will also help and empower you to validate any painful experiences that you may have had and the trauma that you may be carrying. Childhood experiences, negative & abusive relationships, grief, health scares can all cause trauma which manifests in your mind and body as pain, depression and anxiety. I will take you on a journey through the elements and we will ignite your potential passion and purpose as a busy mum and as a strong woman.
From ideas in the fire and sparks of imagination to becoming the phoenix rising from your ashes to bring your sparks to life and ignite your ideas into flames of glory. Taking you beyond your sparks of imagination we will spend 6 weeks together in an intensive hotseating group to put solid plans into place for how you are going to bring your vision to reality. Is your business, job, well-being, home – whatever you want to re-ignite we will smash through all of the blocks that are holding you back.
We look at your version of imposter syndrome in order to reframe your thinking. Is your inner voice still holding you back? I will hold space for you to reflect and explore what you have discovered about yourself in our time together. Here is where you open yourself up to how you will be more, feel more and do more.
Tapping into and exploring your own stories through Story Mapping your family and pain points in your past (grief, trauma, divorce, illness etc) We begin a journey together to establish truth and allow ourselves to feel grounded through journaling and story mapping.
We will work on our self-esteem, confidence and personal power. You will learn about Imposter Syndrome, limiting beliefs and how we can reframe these to allow flow in body & mind.
Being aware of your own goals and committing them to paper makes them a goal. You will set goals that you want to achieve in your business and create a plan for how you will ignite your spark into action.
We explore what is holding you back in your relationships, in life, in your job. Do you put other people first to your own detriment? Do you ever feel lonely, insecure and isolated? Have you ever been your own worst enemy? Procrastination, fear, overwhelm are all reasons that we may self-sabotage. We will explore the notion of Self sabotage and how alongside the Ignite classes you can use affirmations, vision boards and positive self-talk to build confidence, courage & self-love.
Explore the power of silence. Connection with self and finding time each day to ‘just be’. We will explore the power of my IGNITE system. The 5-step system and how to use it going forward.
