‘The I Like, I Want, I can Do Challenge’

The Power of the right Mindset.

Ever counted how many times we say the words ‘I don’t like…’ ‘I don’t want…’ and ‘he/she can’t do…’ – Here’s a challenge for everyone, for the next month (and beyond), focus your sentences on expressing what you like- if you see something nice and someone doing something well- tell them! What you want, and what YOU can do, instead of what other people can’t do. This direct expression and mindset, will then in turn attract the right energy.

Looking forward to hearing how you get on! If you already do it- then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Startup & Stilettos: how we’re creating a wave of female social entrepreneurs

Startup and Stilettos is an InspirEngage programme, training vulnerable adult women to become economically active through social enterprise. We train the participants on modules such as identity, mapping the community and even confidence development through Persian dance for them to feel good, business savvy and equipped with practical steps to bring their concept to life. The programme benefits the women themselves, their children/ families and their community. Our partners Hillcroft College were invaluable to the success.

Social enterprise is a fantastic model for these ladies to utilise what they have experienced along with their aspiration to make a difference and work. It’s one of the programmes where we’ve had the most social impact

Here’s a flavour of the journey our lovely ladies went on.
