Ditching her ‘old life’ in 2015 to live a life with more spirit and adventure.

She went from being a shopaholic, beauty salon owner to an endurance athlete who rowed the Atlantic Ocean in 43 days in 2018 sharing a boat and a bucket with 3 total strangers rowing in 2-hour shifts 24/7.

"How to create a successful life- I went to this event and shortly after landed myself a great job. I swear it was my new mindset. I feel like a different person- you are what you do. Your quotes, posts and teaching are very uplifting. Thank you, Abigail."
Anna, UK

"I attended Abigail's "How to Create a Successful Life" and loved it. It was a lively and fun event packed full of useful tips and I got to meet some really interesting like-minded people. It was the second event of hers that I attended and I can't wait for the next."
Angus, UK

“How to Create a Successful Life” was a very inspirational event and gave me the tools and motivation to make positive changes in my business and life. The format of the event was superb, with Abigail presenting her insights with great passion and clarity alongside a diverse panel of highly engaging speakers who had all achieved a great deal in their chosen businesses. Finding people who have already achieved the results you want and learning from them is one of the key steps to creating success and the event provided a golden opportunity to do exactly that with all three members of the panel. I felt the value I got from the event was well in excess of what it cost to attend – Abigail could definitely charge a lot more! I highly recommend this event, make sure you attend the next one!"
Richard, UK

"Went to Abigail's How to Create a Successful Life event and loved it! Her events are always so good and this one was great.

Abigail and the panel really know their stuff so the content was gold, full of genuine practical advice and techniques.

All the experts were open, honest and vulnerable as well as funny, inspiring and motivating.
The whole event had such a positive vibe, so as well as all the learning, I had a lot of fun and met some really interesting people too.

Time spent on your own development is crucial to success, so if you missed this one, watch this space and make sure you're at the next one in Q4. You'll be glad you did!"
Nicola, UK

"Went to Abigail’s event last night - how to create a successful life. Bloody hell is was brilliant! The energy was really open, genuine and like everyone was ready to work, get it done and take the gold the speakers and Abi were sharing! The speakers - I mean, such wise business people with real experience and not afraid to be honest about what they’d been through to get where they are now.

HIGHLY recommend going to Abi’s events.. as well as working with her. She’s on top of her game and knows her shizzle!!!"
Clee, UK

Having spent a day with Abigail I couldn't help but find myself driven, energised and more focused than I had been in years! Abigail's passion and energy is infectious, I found myself planning and dreaming about the possibilities for my life and business, not something I have done for years. After spending a day with Abigail, for the first time in a long time, I had some clear goals set, and now I can see how I can grow my business. I have a plan for the next 12 months that I can work on delivering! I can't thank Abigail enough for all her help!

Steve Allen, UK

It’s impossible to overestimate the impact that proper planning and goal setting can have on life. In the weeks since the program, my professional and business life has taken off. Abby sets everything out in a clear and comprehensive manner. The content was well delivered and has impacted my decision making and time management on a day to day basis. I can’t thank Abby enough for creating a space where ambitious, enthusiastic entrepreneurs can not only dream, but also begin to make those dreams a reality!

Dominic Hall, UK

Abigail created a time-management action plan for me following an initial consultation which has helped me to prioritise and define my business growth strategy. In turn, this has led to increased sales. Abigail comes highly recommended for business owners and entrepreneurs looking to make more effective use of their time, increase sales and improve productivity.

Rick McMunn, UK

Thank you Abby, the goal setting for success program helped me to focus even clearer on my next life and business goals, I left the event feeling even happier and more excited, I would recommend this event to any business owner who wants to supercharge their success in 2016.

Kim Wymer, UK

The Goal Setting for Success Program was the perfect way for me to prepare for 2016 - it not only gave me the time to plan but also a process to get real clarity on my business and life goals for the coming year, along with an action plan to achieve them. Thanks to Abigail I was able to identify my key priorities, rather than spreading myself too thin in many areas. I've come away with renewed excitement for my business. The program has also armed me with tools to overcome times of procrastination and overwhelm in order to make my goals a reality. I highly recommend Abigail and this program to anyone wanting to take their business to the next level in 2016! Really awesome!

Jess Christiansen, Australia

After doing the Goal Setting for Success Program, I feel excited to apply what I learned to my business. I have some great new techniques that I can use to tackle procrastination and beat overwhelm. I have a clear growth vision for my business and life in 2016. Thank you Abigail, I highly recommend this Program to any business owner that wants to make 2016 their best year ever.

CoralHamze, UK

Thanks for the very informative lunch and learn today, I thought it was very well presented and thought-provoking, and it's always good to hone your own time-management techniques and get a little perspective.
