In addition to the resources offered here at You Inspire Me, I also love:
Through his organization ‘Heart of Business’, Mark combines a deep, authentic spirituality with solid business sense and a necessarily healthy relationship with finances. I highly recommend his free newsletter and pretty much everything else he’s ever created! I worked for 18-months with his Heart of Business practitioner, Jason Stein, as my mentor.
Clutter can be a massive block along the self-employment journey. Sue’s a master coach and reveals how we can eliminate overwhelm, get on top of our To Do list, and make space for what really matters. Check her out > >
Sue and I have also led a number of public teleclasses together so do leave your name and email address in the boxes on the right of this page so I can let you know of future classes with her and other wonderful colleagues of mine.
Laura’s a whizz with websites and social media. I highly recommend her free ‘End Your Website Shame’ webinars and several of my clients have set up their own websites quickly using her ‘Zero To Website’ home-study programme.
I fell in love with Tad’s refreshingly authentic (and fun!) approach to marketing after watching his video about Why You Need A Niche.
Brilliant photographer. Very relaxing sessions in North London; produces excellent professional shots you can use on your website or social media.

A person who has actually done the kind of thing your doubts tell you is foolish or even impossible is a powerful force to be reckoned with.

The Work We Were Born To Do
by Nick Williams
This was a pivotal book for me, catalysing me to leave my teaching job and become self-employed. Nick has now made the content available as a free e-course. He also interviewed me for his ‘Entrepreneurial Heroes’ series. It’s an hour-long discussion about my journey from employment, to self-employment, to running You Inspire Me; listen here
Dark Side of the Light Chasers
by Debbie Ford
The premise is that we have shut the door on certain aspects of ourselves, deeming them unacceptable. This book helps us to reclaim both the ugly and the beautiful, the angry and the joyful, the manipulative and the selfless, the spiteful and the unconditionally loving so that we stop projecting our fears and desires on to other people and rediscover our wholeness.
Love Is Letting Go Of Fear
by Gerald Jampolsky
A tiny gem about the power of love and forgiveness.
Loving What Is
by Byron Katie
A practical approach to ending our judgements and our struggle with reality.
Notes From The Universe
by Mike Dooley
Truly bite-size, sparky, reality-check kind of inspiration.
Hug The Monster
by David Miln Smith & Sandra Leicester
Practical guidance for how to love our fear so much that it doesn’t stop us from living our dreams.

The central message is that we have one life and so we must take chances and not settle and sell away our dreams. Someone described this film as a great advert for my work! Do book a one-to-one coaching consultation if it inspires you to want to find and follow your passion.
