“I read this book over about 2 weeks, doing the exercises and really thinking about the answers. I can’t pretend it was easy (in fact, some of the exercises were genuinely difficult because Anna Stapleton makes you dig deep!) However, she clearly asks the right questions because I realised lots of things about myself that I perhaps didn’t want to admit. This is a terrific book for anyone who is feeling a bit lost or lacking direction and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Don’t think about it – just buy it!”
Janet Efere, Sales Coach and Trainer, Tadpole Training
This book is a wonderful read and quite an honour to be let into someone’s personal journey – both the up’s and down’s. Both thought provoking and inspiring. I recommend this book to anyone at any point in their adult life. It’s a short read but leaves you with a good nudge towards taking control of your own life choices.
Stephanie Buck, Marketing Coach
Just read the book, cover to cover in one sitting. Such thought provoking and useful information. Can’t wait to use what I have learned.
Both my sister and I have found your book genuinely refreshing, inspiring and have been able to identify with some of your experiences.
There is something in this book for every entrepreneur. Different chapters will resonate with different people because there is no one entrepreneurial model. One key factor that can cripple many solopreneurs, however, is an unresolved past experience. This is where Anna Stapleton’s insights in Chapter Four – Your Pathway to Success – are especially valuable.
Charles Boundy, Legal and Business Adviser
For more than 20 years Anna has shared her wisdom with me. It has been a mutual relationship where we have learnt and shared moments of sabotage and of joy… Anna is her word. Being present to her responsibilities is a vital part of the joy she experiences from running her own business. To be one of her clients is to have the knowledge that you can be what you choose to be.
Hazel Boundry MA, Artist and Communicator
Anna’s coaching has been of immense support over many years. She has always been able to guide me to look into options I would have never seen or considered. Her wide experience, strength of mind and honesty inspire me to take action.
Right from the first session, I experienced some significant, impactful positive changes in my life. Anna has a deep understanding of how the human psyche works. She challenges in a healthy way, which empowers you to make changes yourself, rather be told what to change… When you work with Anna, you realise, it’s not just a job for her… she really does care, and I’m really grateful for the opportunity to work with her.
Anna came into my life when I was almost at rock bottom. She helped me to look at the recent things that had happened in my life in a totally different light and to move on in a positive way. I didn’t realise how much of an impact Anna had had on me until I was able to look back on where I was then and where I am now. Thank you Anna, you are amazing.
Anna for me is a dear and precious life coach. She listens beyond the words. She has made a huge difference in my life. Thanks to her coaching I have acknowledged that my usual reaction is of complaining and be a victim. Something I am no longer prepared to tolerate. Thanks to Anna, for example, I have found the courage to travel on my own knowing that I could do it.
I want to recognise Anna for her ability to connect and listen. With her support I have been able to discover the limits I imposed on myself and the filters through which I saw life that did not allow me to the solution to my issues. With her guidance I was able to take action both in the area of my business and personal life and completed the programme I was following.
Your Wheel Of Life, our sessions and discussions have been enormously helpful as I navigate major changes in my life, my relationship with my wife and my children. As well as any future work life, balance and location. I feel better equipped, resilient, patient and calmer to face and handle what the immediate and longer term future may bring. With more empathy, compassion and authenticity as I continue to work on my family relationships. Thanks for all that you have done to help and support me so far. I have your notes, books, insights to continue to refer to and to guide me.
Michael M, Recently retired company director
Words cannot express how much I’ve appreciated our fortnightly coaching sessions. Our discussions have been very interesting and truly inspiring. You have reinforced for me how important it is to be mindful of those stories we tell ourselves and how these stories can either be empowering or how they can become our biggest barrier in every area of our lives. I will continue being mindful and of course this is work in progress.
