Poppy’s coming of age and the evolution of REACH
by Angela Darar
As I write this blog, I’m swept away by a wave of nostalgia and pride. Today marks a significant milestone for our family and REACH Business Coaching – our daughter Poppy’s 18th birthday and our business’s 17th anniversary.
Seventeen years ago, my husband Jas and I embarked on two life-changing journeys simultaneously. We welcomed our daughter Poppy into the world, and shortly before she turned one, we launched REACH Business Coaching. Our goal was simple yet profound: to create a business that provided us with freedom, choice, and the invaluable opportunity to spend time with Poppy and any future siblings.
The parallels between raising a child and nurturing a business are striking. Both require patience, resilience, and a commitment to growth and learning.
As Poppy grew from a baby into the wonderful young woman she is today – preparing for her A-levels and looking forward to university – REACH too has evolved, guided by our vision to offer every business owner not just a business to be proud of, but also a life worth living.
These 17 years have been a journey of balancing our time between our growing children and our developing business. It’s a journey that has continually reinforced our core values and our belief in the importance of family and professional fulfillment.
But it’s not just about allocating time; it’s about embedding a sense of purpose and fulfillment in both our personal and professional lives. It’s about watching our children’s first steps and celebrating their successes, all while nurturing a business from its inception to the thriving entity it is today.
This dual journey has been a testament to our belief that one can attain professional success without compromising on the precious moments that family life offers.
This reflection isn’t just about our journey. It’s also an opportunity to ask you, our valued readers and fellow business owners, some crucial questions. How do you feel about the balance in your life? Do you have the time you desire to spend with your family and to support them through life’s journey? If something feels amiss, what changes are you willing to make to achieve that balance?
If these questions stir something within you, I warmly invite you to join us at the upcoming Cycle of Business Success seminar. It’s an ideal starting point to refocus on your aspirations and learn strategies to achieve that all-important work-life balance.
We have two upcoming dates: Thursday 8th February 2024 and Thursday 7th March 2024, both at the Radisson Blu Hotel near East Midlands Airport. It’s more than just a seminar; it’s a chance to start crafting the life and business you’ve always envisioned. My husband and Master Business Coach Jas will help you regain that time, as well as other strategies for increasing profits and improving your team.
I look forward to meeting many of you there, sharing insights, and together, embarking on a journey towards a more balanced and fulfilling life.
