A Little bit about me and my business ethos...
"My mission is to bridge the gap linking life and business development. I make business education & planning accessible, practical and empowering to all, without neglecting the personal development that is crucial to building a balanced and purposeful life. Offering value and substance through, knowledge, skill development & clear strategy. I combine my business training & coaching experience to ensure you have the ability and guidance to really live your life with intention"
HONESTY – If there is one thing business has taught me, it is that honesty (and I mean candid honesty) is integral to success. The need to hear the truth from those around you as well as being truthful to oneself has a direct link to success.
INTEGRITY – Here at LucienneLavinia I believe that behaving with integrity brings the best to our clients and doing so puts their needs always first. I understand that TRUST and RESPECT are values that are earnt by myself and you the client. Therefore, it is a fundamental value that I embrace in every avenue of my work.
KNOWLEDGE – Business & mindset development is an evolving beast and I recognise that investing in knowledge and the experiences that we share, leads to opportunity and growth.
COURAGE – By taking risks we will flourish in a way we never knew possible. Although we may fear the consequence of diving of the high board, we will find out more about ourselves and the business we want to create by doing so.
JOY – I strive to bring to you the most up to date information regards the basic foundations of business Start-Ups but I want you to always be inspired and proactive. By enjoying the work you are doing, and by acknowledging and celebrating the success that occurs on the journey, we can be proud of the work created.
Originally from Stoke on Trent, England, I graduated from the Manchester Metropolitan University in 2006. I spent the next two years working in accounts for a global energy firm in Manchester before embarking on a career with The Princes Trust Charity on their Business Enterprise Team. Since 2008 I have been directly involved in providing business support involving over 4000 hours of coaching and 1500 hours delivering nationally qualified business start-up courses. Over the past decade I have delivered immersive business Start-Up training, sharing the practical nuts and bolts of business. I have delivered informal training for HMRC and I have worked alongside my clients to develop solid business plans, secure Start-Up funding and get businesses off the ground.
Whilst working alongside my clients I have recognised that Start-Ups benefit from the holistic development of the business owner, YOU. In order to create a solid and substantial business which grows from initial concept into a robust and thriving career requires a healthy mindset which is supported throughout the whole development process. Consequently, I began to deliver training that offered not just the formal elements of business but also the health and well-being support needed to get a business off the ground. In order to provide the best service, I have trained and qualified as an NLP Practitioner (registered with the Associates Coaching, 2018) and Life Coach which I use to complement the Start-Up business model.
In 2018 my husband and I, with our four children, moved to Naples, Italy to embark on a new adventure. As a military spouse, overseas postings are not uncommon and due to this I left The Princes Trust and my business, LucienneLavinia, has evolved to cater to a global market of ever moving individuals.
Now I bring a fully immersive programme to business development which offers practical, no nonsense guidance, training and advice allowing you to lay the solid foundations from which your business can grow.
My mission is to give the power back to you and your family, to show you that is it possible to create something can grow – regardless of whatever life throws your way.
Life does not conform to the 9 – 5, so neither do I.
