Forever Business Owner
Global Business Coach
20 years later, after her career in the NHS, her self employed consultancy role in change management, she moved on to coaching. She also developed a part time love of teaching fitness, for fun! She has blended together a rare set of skills. With fire walking, pole jumping and NLP Master Practitioner skills to top them off…she is now a rather unusual Pilates teacher and Director of her own large health and fitness business. After creating and producing 4 Pilates DVD’s in groundbreaking areas… she learned how to become an entrepreneur. With the worlds first Pilates in Pregnancy DVD she helped thousands of women around the world stay well during a special phase of their lives. She went on to produce Pilates for Mums, Pilates Essentials and Pilates for Men.
But becoming a business owner with Forever Living wasn’t in the plan; it was a happy accident!
Pilates Institute Accredited Instructor
Lindsey was about to set up her own Pilates and wellbeing centre.. when the banks crashed in 2008. Worried that she would be hamstrung by overheads and large running costs at a time when people were spending less, she soon realised it was the wrong direction. “I loved the idea of my own place. But I also knew I was the brand and my clients wanted me to teach them. It’s easy to be flattered by this.. but actually it was a problem. Finding, employing and developing other teachers.. who remain loyal.. was a problem I just didn’t want. It would take me away from my teaching, which I still love. And a teachers hours are unsociable for young family.”
She still teaches classes and private clients every week. But her main focus is now on coaching others to build a successful wellbeing business of their own, often alongside professional jobs. Her skill is to find to what really drives someone.. and then going at their pace to help them succeed. She’s also passionate about the natural products and has supported many of her customers to improve their health and mobility over many years.
It used to be that you went to college, got a degree and got a good job for life. You worked for 40 years and drew a pension. But life isn’t like that any more. Most people don’t have pension and most people face working until their late 60’s or later (certainly in the UK). Lindsey has discovered a way to help others break out of this ‘rat race’ and with no risk … make a transition to something greater and exciting.
It takes a bit of courage and the willingness to learn, she says.. but if someone is caring, loves to feel healthy and vibrant – and wants to be rewarded for their efforts our team can be a superb environment to really create a different life to the ‘norm’.
