“When I first thought of working with Sam, I did worry about the intensity of one on one work. I sometimes have this I’m not deserving of this attention thing coming up but I think that’s all part of the process, feel the fear and do it anyway.
I was wanting to grow my online presence and the amount of people who attend my classes, but I was aware of my worry about not possibly making enough money. I felt like I failed if I didn’t get “enough” people into my classes.
Sam was honest and kind. She pointed out my blind spots – my feast/famine pattern and that I’m still living like a student although I’m not one. She gently helped me realise what I was doing to repel money from me.
Since we’ve worked together I have manifested money and work from places that I didn’t expect: I have started teaching in lots of schools and foresee that continuing, with Sam’s guidance and encouragement I was able to ask for way more money for a project than I would have, I have had funding granted for lots of classes whereas all I had thought I’d do was run my own courses with x amount of participants. Sam helped me believe in myself and what was possible for me.
I’m also much more organised and she has helped me realise that I am my businesses biggest asset so self care, being gentle and kind to myself is all part of my business, even if it doesn’t feel like it.
Sam knows what you need when you don’t and she has an incredible intuition that she listens to to guide her clients. I would highly recommend working with Sam 121 or in her workshops. Although the workshops are aimed at our businesses we discuss much more than just that and the results can be seen. The connections and support the whole group offer each other is incredible.
I think anyone at all could benefit from Sam’s guidance and support. If you know that you would like more from life then Sam can help you. She will listen and hold space beautifully and she will pick up what you’ve missed. She is an incredible holistic coach who takes all parts of your life into consideration and will help you put a plan together to get wherever it is you want to do in life.
Before you start working with Sam you need to be ready and aware that there will be work to do. If you want to change something in your life you have to change your habits and that’s not easy. Sam will tell you what you need to hear even if you don’t want to know it, she will be gentle and kind but she’ll be honest so you have to be ready for the work.”
“I was fortunate that I had got to know Sam before the coaching sessions and therefore I already knew how fabulous she was at guiding me in the right direction and giving me the confidence to follow through with ideas. Initially I was concerned that my ideas may seem silly. It’s all very well having ideas but bringing them to life and discussing them with other people can be hard. I was attending trade shows for the Wiltshire Liqueur Company and putting together my own business ideas that stemmed from work, but whilst I had lots of ideas I had no real focus on the direction I wanted it the business to go in.
I was struggling with the confidence to move forward with my ideas and believing that people would part with their money to buy the gifts and products I hoped to sell. I believe this is called Imposter Syndrome! From working with Sam, I have really found the confidence to be proud of my brand/products and this has led me to reach out to other small businesses and connect with them. As well as gaining new products for my portfolio, I have also met some wonderful people each with their own insights and tips in running your own business.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam’s services as even after one session she enabled me to believe in myself and see that I can and fit the business around my life and be at home for my children. Sam is hugely professional but at the same time she puts a lot of passion into what she does, having taken the journey herself. She can relate to every step that we are taking and she does it with genuine compassion.
If you have hit a bump in the road in your business and you need extra support and guidance, then Sam is the perfect person to call on. Her advice, skills and support have been invaluable in my journey so far, and I look forward to seeing where she will guide me in the future.”
“I had a coaching session with Samantha today and in just a short time she was able to cut through my confusion and help me find a direction that lights me up!
Samantha puts you at ease straightaway and is incredibly easy to talk to. She ‘gets’ you and understands what lies behind your issues, gently drawing answers out of you that you may not have known how to frame for yourself.
I’m thoroughly relieved after months of procrastination. I feel elated and can’t wait to action all the points we concluded in our work together. Thank you so much!”
“I had a call with Samantha today and it was honestly fantastic – I’m still buzzing from it! Talking through things has really helped.
We talked about where my business is going, the practical side as well as all the other areas which I knew about but had completely forgotten. I feel like she’s guiding me through this, making me look inside to find the answers that I know but have forgotten over the path of working, rather than telling me something. It all really resonates and feels so in tune with who I am and where my business should be going.
Thank you so much, I can’t wait for our next call.”
“Working with you I have learnt to outsource and ask for help and guidance where needed rather than thinking I can do everything myself. I would definitely recommend you. You are a very real person who really cares and has a lot of experience which is a really unusual combination”
