Dear Female Business Owner,

Do you feel like you're working flat out to meet the non-stop demands of running your own business and managing your family and ignoring your own needs?

Juggling work, family, fitness, and growth but feel like you're not doing anything that well?

Constantly skipping lunch with the usual excuse that you "just don't have time to stop"?

Never actually taking time out to give yourself the love and kindness YOU need as a woman?!

Don't worry...I know EXACTLY how you feel.

I've been there...and so have most of my clients.

What happened to all that fulfillment you were promised when you started your biz?

What are you actually working for if you're not having fun in your business?

Sure, you want to give 100% to your clients, your staff and your family...

...but what happens but when it becomes all work and no play?

Well, what usually happens when you're overworked is:

- Your stress levels get continuously higher and you lose the natural energy you once had to drive your business forward and realise your personal and professional vision...

- You neglect your own needs and personal standards and end up putting EVERYONE else before what you actually need to function and feel good...

- You feel washed out, uninspired and constantly on edge with your family and friends, which leads to conflict, relationship problems and major stress and anxiety about your future...

Does this resonate with you at all?

Don't worry, you're definitely not alone.

Most business owners - especially women - often find themselves on the verge of emotional or even physical burnout before they realise something needs to change.

And that's exactly why I've spent the last few months putting together The Seriously Silly Business Workshop for entrepreneurs who are in this situation.

So that amazing business owners like you can create successful and profitable businesses AND give your family and friends the love they need WITHOUT burning yourself out by trying be some kind of SUPERWOMAN...which, despite what you might think, you are not.

You know what I mean, I'm sure.

Anyhow, before I tell you about this unique workshop, let me introduce myself.

Who am I and why do I think I can help you?

business therapist - anna pinkerton

In case you don't know me from Adam or Eve, I'm Anna Pinkerton.

Apart from being a busy entrepreneur, I'm also a psychotherapist, coach, bestselling author (wooooohooo) and founder of Kindness Incorporated®.

Some people call me one of the leading specialists in Play Therapy in the UK.

Professionally, I've spent 25 years working with people from all walks of life, helping them overcome difficult times and learn to live with joy and happiness again after breakdown, burnout or overwhelming stress..

What you might also want to know about me is that I've actually experienced a lot of personal trauma and emotional adversity myself in the form of PTSD back in 2009.

...and thankfully, through my own methodology, I've come through it to tell the tale.

Since then, I've gone on to build a thriving psychotherapy business, write a bestselling book and coach many other female business owners around fulfillment, business and wellbeing.

It's been a heck of a ride, I can tell you.

And now I'm helping other female entrepreneurs, just like you, to navigate their way through burnout, breakdown, trauma and overwhelming stress AND build thriving businesses that are founded on principles of kindness, self-care and compassion!

Anyway, enough about me.

Back to the bit about Seriously Silly Business...

You see, the reason I'm telling you this is because I'd like to invite you to a new workshop that I'm running for 10 female entrepreneurs on Friday 21st April 2017 in Derbyshire, UK.

Be warned though, this is not your normal testosterone-filled, fist-pumping, high-fiving semi sales pitch-type "Self Development Workshops"...

During this 1 day interactive session, I'll be asking you to throw off your shackles, put on your onesie, and join me for a day of playing, creating and reconnecting with your inner child through the principles of Play Therapy that I've learned over the last 25 years.

It will be challenging as much as it will be a LOT of fun.

The truth is, you've been taking yourself and your business FAR too seriously.

You may have noticed you find it hard to have fun and relax recently?

Or you might find yourself skipping meals and 'forgetting' to take care of your health?

Maybe you've realised that you've lost perspective and have been prioritising things that don't actually matter to you HALF as much as you thought they did.

Do you know what I mean?

If you're nodding your head right now, I'm speaking to you!

You know you're not really that serious, stressed out person that keeps showing up, right?

Well now it's time to learn to PLAY again and let yourself have some FUN!

Because silliness is Serious Business too!

Let me explain.

The Art and Science of Play in Business

You see, joking aside, the science and research shows that play, creativity and mindfulness all drastically impact your wellbeing and sense of positivity.

Researchers have also discovered that your emotional state is drastically affected by engaging regularly in play, laughter and enjoyment and that these elements are important elements of maintaining your psychological and physical health.

Above all, when you "spend time without purpose" creating, connecting, playing and letting go of any sense of "should" "ought to" or "must", you'll find you come alive again!!

You'll also see just how much this can impact the relationships in your life and the way you approach your business and your professional's serious stuff.

What Will You Learn During The Workshop?

The Seriously Silly Business Workshop is a unique and transformational experience that's been designed to help you bring lightness and fun back into your business.

You'll join 9 other women and me in my own workshop space in the heart of Derbyshire for a whole day of exploring, creating and playing - all in the name of personal growth, self discovery and self-love....

...this is your chance to switch off, relax and play for a whole day, in a beautiful location!

This is a truly therapuetic and self-indulgent experience that will revitalise and inspire you to go back to your business and your family with a new-found energy.

During this 1-day workshop experience you will discover how you can:

  • Incorporate PLAY and FUN in to your life again and discover how to combat burnout, anxiety and feelings of overwhelming stress through the scientifically proven power of SILLINESS!
  • Heal and release emotions in a safe and confidential space so that you can truly feel joy and aliveness again in each aspect of your life and your business
  • Rekindle your relationship with your inner child so that you experience more fun, enjoyment and playfulness in life
  • Discover what you – as a unique and important individual – really need from yourself and your relationships in order to realise your potential and live life like as you choose
  • Take away a series of powerful and therapeutic activities and strategies that you can use to consistently navigate stressful times and emotionally-challenging situations in the future
  • Improve your relationships and connect more deeply with your family by taking care of you and your inner child and indulging in the things you LOVE to do

Through playful exercises, group discussion and activities that will challenge and inspire you, we will explore the magical impact of playing on your wellbeing, your happiness and your impact in your business and with your clients!

This is a self-discovery workshop like no other.

What's Included in the Workshop?

Your place on this 1 day workshop experience includes:

    - 1 Day Workshop with me, Anna Pinkerton
    - Tasty Breakfast & Lunch (Vegan options available)
    - Silly Business Learning Pack
    - Signed copy of my new book "Smile Again"
    - Access to my private "Clients Only" Facebook Group

This is also your chance to connect with an amazing group of women, just like you, who want to learn to live and work with more lightness and more joy...

...and have proper laugh whilst doing it!! :-)

Does that sound like your kind of thing?

What Does It Cost?

A place on this workshop costs £97.00 and is payable upfront.

(As my personal coaching/therapy fee is considerably higher than that, this is an opportunity to work with me at a fraction of the cost that I would normally charge personal clients.)

I'm charging this amount because I really want as many people as possible to be able to benefit from the things I've learned about the Power of Play over the last 25 years.

Of course, I know this workshop isn't for everyone.

But if you are...

 - A courageous, open-hearted female business owner or entrepreneur
 - Feeling deflated, stressed out or just plain weary of your business
 - Ready to spend a day out of your business to renew and re-energise yourself

...then this could be a fantastic opportunity for you to get your mojo back!

Here's what other people say about working with me:

Working with Anna Pinkerton has been one of the singular most transformative experiences of my entire life. Learning the power of self-kindness as a healing tool, and then applying it to my own life and coaching practice has allowed me to find greater peace, greater acceptance of myself and greater sense of compassion for my own being and for others around me. Thank you Anna!

Bob Buckley

I hadn't expected this practice to be so thought provoking, the debate and discussion that such a simple concept triggered made me realize how much we need this; how much as individuals we have forgotten the power of kindness to ourselves and therefore others. Life changing sounds like such a cliché, except when it is the truth.
