Join us for our upcoming Open Doors event on Thursday, May 2nd, where Jamie McBrearty will give you the tools needed to celebrate your success stories. There will be time for networking and a slice (or two!) of pizza at the beginning of the event, and then Jamie will explore the barriers preventing businesses from sharing successes and how to overcome them.

The first step towards success is visibility, but we understand that it can be daunting for many professionals, especially those who are just starting. This event is designed to help you overcome that fear by providing practical tools and tips that will help you stand out from the crowd and attract the clients you need.

Over the course of the session, you will receive a series of prompts that will encourage you to explore your mindset around visibility and provide you with the tools you need to eliminate your fear and start putting yourself out there. Each prompt will be accompanied by actionable steps that you can take to improve your visibility and begin to attract new clients.

At the end of the session, you'll have a newfound confidence in your ability to put yourself out there and connect with potential clients. You'll have the mindset and tools you need to create the professional life you've always wanted, filled with financial freedom and endless possibilities.

The session is 1 hour and will be broken into 3 sections of 20 minutes as follows:

Face Your Fears

Uncover the fears that are holding you back in business and life. We all have fears that hold us back from achieving our goals, both in business and life. It's easy to let these fears consume us, but we must learn to face them head-on. Only by acknowledging and understanding these fears can we move past them and grow as individuals. Perhaps you fear failure or rejection, or maybe you fear success and the responsibilities that come with it. Whatever it may be, confronting your fears and taking small steps towards overcoming them will bring a newfound sense of confidence and empowerment. Don't let fear hold you back any longer; it's time to face it and reach your full potential.

You are Good Enough

Develop a bullet-proof self-image that will give you the key to freedom. Believe it, own it, and let it become the foundation of your unbreakable self-image. Start by acknowledging your strengths and talents and celebrating them daily. Accept your flaws and learn from them without letting them define you. Refuse to allow the negativity and criticism of others to bring you down. Remember, your worth and value do not come from others' opinions, but from within. Keep working towards your goals, learning from your failures, and striving for excellence. Trust yourself, your abilities, the journey ahead and watch your self-image grow stronger with each passing day. You are good enough, always have been and always will be. Let this realisation set you free.

Create your visibility mindset

Your visibility mindset can set you apart from others in a crowded room or a packed market. To develop your visibility mindset, I will share ways to develop the visibility mindset that will take your forward for the rest of your life.

There will be a bonus giveaway at the end for all attendees of a 90-day plan to work through which can be downloaded on the night.
