Synopsis

If you want to stop bouncing around from one diet to another, make this the last time you ever have to lose weight, regain your confidence, finally feel comfortable in your clothes and transform your life inside and out…then you want to read this book.

And here’s why - traditional approaches to weight loss and improving your health simply don’t work. They didn’t work for me, and they haven’t worked for you, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now. 

The truth is you can get the health and body of your dreams, without giving up all your favourite foods, starving yourself or spending everyday in the gym, and I’m not just going to show you how, I’m going to guide you every step of the way.

What it comes down to is balance, looking at your lifestyle on the whole, and not looking for another one size fits all quick fix.

I really wanted to do something different with this book, that actually works and produces sustainable results, combining scientific research with the help, guidance and support I wish I had back when I was struggling on my own.

That’s why everything in this book can be tailored around you, from your goals to the changes you want to make, fitting around your routine, your commitments and what you truly want in life.

Just a few of the things we will be covering are:
- How to put together a balanced diet, free from restriction, creating healthy meals you love, determining portion sizes without counting calories and how to eat to achieve your weight loss goals.
- Ways to develop healthier habits, manage stress, change your mindset, overcome limiting beliefs and finally reach your true potential.
- Learning to listen to your body, as you start to make more informed choices in all areas of your life, stop acting on impulse and break the control cravings and willpower have over you.
- Becoming active in a way you actually enjoy, that you look forward to and fits into your routine.
- Finding ways to rest, relax and unwind, regardless of how busy you are.
- Getting round the barrier of time, eating healthy on a budget and more.

All of this added together will create a momentum shift in all areas of your life, and there are systems in check to keep you accountable and consistent.

Not only will you lose weight, but you will also boost your energy, improve your mood, focus, sleep and general outlook on life, all while becoming a healthier, happier you.

No it won’t happen overnight, but just think, in 10 weeks you could completely transform your life, finally achieving what you’ve spent years dreaming about, showing you that change is possible and that you are the one in control of your own destiny.

Just remember, this is not a diet, it’s a change in lifestyle, that will help you not only look, but also feel better than you ever have before.

So if you are serious about making this the last time you ever have to lose weight, then the time to take action is now!

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!

As a thank you for buying this book, I’m offering all readers a transformation call directly with me, to help you map out and get clarity on your own journey.

Book cover image for The Quarry Bank Runaways
View full details

Synopsis

In the early 19th century, when it was the policy of many of the poorhouses and workhouses to deter paupers from applying by making the conditions inside harsh and unpleasant, two boys set out on a journey to Hackney Workhouse in London. Their starting point was in the pleasant Cheshire countryside, where they were apprenticed to the cotton mill built by Samuel Greg in 1784. Children as young as nine would be employed there as scavengers, piecers, mule doffers or can tenters. These jobs could be just as unpleasant and difficult for a poor child as those we may have heard of, such as chimney sweeps and match girls.

Quarry Bank Mill was some 200 miles north of London and the boys had to sneak out unnoticed and then attempt to walk all the way. It was likely that these enterprising travellers took advantage of the drovers’ roads and the newly developed “motorways” of the times—the canals. Perhaps they were lucky enough some days to hitch a lift; their general direction of travel taking them to Beartown, the Potteries, Dunstable Downs and, eventually, to London. Whatever challenges they encountered along the way, archived evidence shows that they made it.

Runaway apprentices had become a problem for society during the years of the Industrial Revolution—so what had prompted Thomas and Joseph to do such a hazardous thing? What happened to them on their long journey? Did they receive any help? Or were they chased relentlessly wherever they ran, since what they were doing was illegal in the eyes of the authorities?

This is the story of their adventure and it concludes with the events in the Middlesex courthouse, known then as the Old Sessions.

Book cover image for Getting It Write: Common Sense Copywriting for your Business
View full details

Synopsis

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a book on Writing for your Business could guide you, gently but firmly down the path to security, success and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Unfortunately, life’s no fairy-tale, so I wouldn’t lay bets on the pot!

Fact is, there’s never an approach to anything that suits everyone and writing’s no exception. What works splendidly for someone else, might not tick your boxes. Which is why, in this book, you’ll find no absolute rights, wrongs or rules, just plenty of options, opinions and suggestions including such weighty matters as:

~ Not Murdering your Message
~ Marketing Hits and Myths
~ Creating Killer Copy Lines
~ Public Speaking or Root Canal Treatment?

I certainly hope some of what I’ve put together (based on more years of writing than I care to remember) will nudge you to approach things from new angles, encourage you to trust your own instincts, help avoid unpleasant pitfalls and help you make words work harder for you.

As a writer for businesses, the tools I work with are words (and multiple cups of coffee) but because we use words all the time, we can easily forget just how powerful they are and how they can work in oddly contradictory ways.

Doubtful?

Well, suppose I say, 'The meeting starts at 12.00.' Pretty straightforward statement. How about if I say, 'I’m sure the meeting starts at 12.00.' The addition of that one word changes the statement. How odd is that? 'Sure' is an unequivocal endorsement, yet put it before a statement and it instantly casts doubt, making you sound less rather than more certain. Words can be pesky but if you're running a business your communication has to be good, if it's not, you won't be running a business for long.

"5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, succinct - with brilliant tips.
This book has inspired me to change my copy on every single forum out there! There are so many brilliant tips and Marilyn’s engaging humour shines throughout. I have a long list of to do's and ideas to follow through. Aside from the tips, I learned simply from her style of writing - she practices what she preaches. It's helped me focus, refine and step into my authenticity in the material I put out there. Sometimes you read a book that really changes how you think, this is one of those.’ Welshy. 7 February 2019"

Synopsis

Gratitude for Happiness: How to exercise your gratitude muscles

This book is written to be used at any stage of your gratitude journey.
Our gratitude muscles are like any muscle in that if they haven’t been used for a while they may need warming up.
This book provides you a process to help you flex those muscles and build a gratitude habit of building on your happiness.
The issue that most of us have is that we focus more on what we haven’t got than what we have got. In a difficult financial climate, it can seem that we are struggling and have little to be grateful for.
The sixty sections and over four hundred and ninety genuine gratitude statements provided here cover a wide spectrum of your life, including finance, relationships, and even basic shelter.
In order to obtain the most benefits from Gratitude, you should express emotions for the things that you are grateful for.
Just reading a book isn’t going to provide you the benefits you seek so this book provides you an exercise at the end of each section.
Whether prefer to progress steadily or are a binge reading type of person, this book suggests three optional timeframes to develop your habit.
It is widely accepted that gratitude is one of the secret sauces that successful people use regularly for their happiness.
Read this book, work through the exercises, express your emotions for even the smallest gratitude’s and you’ll be amazed by the results.

Book cover image for Leon Chameleon PI and the case of the kidnapped mouse
View full details

Synopsis

A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds.

When Mr Woodland Mouse mysteriously disappears, Constable Mole is quick to enlist the help of Leon Chameleon, Private Investigator, whose expertise enabled the Pigeon Valley Police to solve the case of the missing canary eggs.

After organising a search, Leon realises that there is only one creature in the valley who can spring the captured mouse from his prison. But just when he thinks Mr Woodland Mouse is safely on his way home, the plan goes horribly wrong..."

All the animal details of food, habits, and lifestyle are true to nature (apart from Constable Mole’s sunglasses!) and the animals solve the crimes using their own natural abilities. Children will absorb much knowledge of the small creatures of Africa without being aware of it.

A section of interesting facts has been added to this second detective story in the Leon Chameleon PI series. It provides valuable and little-known information on chameleons, moles and other creatures featured in the story.

Book cover image for Values: Not Just for the Office Wall Plaque - How Personal and Company Values Intersect
View full details

Synopsis

Did Enron really live by its stated value of Integrity? Many companies have values enshrined on a plaque in a prominent location but do their values positively contribute to business success or undermine it?

We all have values, whether we know what they are or not. So, all companies have values, whether they are clearly and honestly articulated or not. Knowing and living by our values reduces conflict. Not living by our standards increases conflict, within ourselves, with others and between teams.

Based on practical experience, this fascinating book provides insight into the concepts of personal and company values, pitfalls of using them incorrectly, and the power they generate, when applied consistently. In particular, the book explores the need for executives and managers, of all company sizes, to be deeply aware of their own values, the impact their collective values have throughout the organisation, and how they can use values to create competitive advantage.

Synopsis

Bheki is small for his age and is bullied by the bigger herdboys in his African village, but his magic light wins him friends and respect – until the light begins to fade. Bheki then embarks on a life-changing journey to bring power back to the magic light.
Perfect for teaching children about science, other cultures, and self-worth.

'The big day has arrived and Bheki’s house is flooded with electric light for the first time. He remembers the time, many years before, when his father gave him a light that really did seem to be magic. The torch brought him many friends and a new status in the kraal, until its beam began to fade. Bheki’s journey to bring power back to the magic light tested him to the limit but ended in magic of a different kind. It gave him a belief in himself.'

At the end of the story, Bheki explains how batteries work and how electricity is generated and brought into homes across the world.

If you watched Nelson Mandela's funeral service at Qunu you will recognise the similar rural setting in the story. (Nelson Mandela was also a herd boy)

Still unsure if you need a coach?

A 2014 survey of over 9000 current and aspiring authors produced the following results:Of the 9000 respondents approximately 58% had actually completed a manuscript. 6000 of the 9000 respondents were only "aspiring" authors and of them only 36.7% had completed a manuscript.Only 23% of all the survey respondents (who had completed their manuscript) had actually published their first book.If we look at those figures we can see that with a roughly 60% chance of getting to the stage of completing a manuscript you then have less than a one in four chance of continuing and  publishing it.

Book cover image for Would You Rather Be in the Coffin Than Give the Eulogy - how to take the terror out of public speaking and advance your career and social ne
View full details

Synopsis

The book that could change your life.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career or an expert in your field you will need some basic skills in public speaking – and some practical advice. Here it is.

The ability to speak in public is probably the most rewarding skill you will ever learn. It will not only improve your career prospects, but will also boost your self-confidence at social functions (you may never become the life and soul of the party, but at least you won't have to remain a wallflower!)

Have you ever:

Been nervous about a promotion because it involved public speaking?
Been afraid to speak up in meetings?
Turned down an invitation to speak at your garden club or similar (or choked horribly in the attempt)?
Been unsure about proposing a toast, or introducing and thanking a speaker?

Then you will benefit from the tips and guidelines in this book. Self-confidence comes from knowing the correct way of doing things - and how to avoid the pitfalls.

As you advance in your career you might be expected to:

Give presentations.
Deliver farewell speeches.
Compere functions.
Do media interviews.
And yes, give eulogies.

This book provides a step-by-step guide for giving these, and many other speeches, with examples that show you what to do, what not to do - and what can go hilariously wrong! (Some things are only learned by experience).

Jan Hurst-Nicholson has used her 35-year involvement in public speaking training, and her experiences giving talks at numerous events and organisations to compile this practical guide. Uniquely geared towards the average person who does not aspire to become a professional speaker, (although there's good stuff for them as well) but merely wants practical advice on speaking in public, (don't drink anything fizzy before a speech) it is packed with meaty information that provides the tools for a better, confident you. Use them and you will soon have those butterflies flying in formation - and it might even change your life.

* Makes a great graduation gift.

Book cover image for The Adventures of Doctor X in China: Five years teaching ESL in a strange land
View full details

Synopsis

In his late fifties Doctor X realised that he was in the ‘death zone,’ and didn’t want to go out feet up, sitting in front of the TV in the UK – he wanted to continue to live a life. Journey with him on his five-year love and hate affair with China, seeking out a new life, and enjoying strange encounters - boldly going where no English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher has gone before.

Doctor X gives us his unexpurgated insight into an ESL teacher’s life in China. What it’s really like in the high schools of China. He outs the unprofessional, and drunken behaviour of the riff raff that wash up professing to be teachers but are really professional bar flies. He also provides crucial hints, and tips for the new teacher thinking about giving China a go.

He writes frankly about his relationship with some of the women that were just ships that passed in the night. From Little Yellow, and the ladyboys of Bangkok to meeting E - his eventual life partner. This erotilogue will show you a China hidden from the tourist – the bathhouses, and the pink curtained massage parlours. Doctor X does not regret one moment of it - it has been an experience worth living – one moment close to death, the next in the arms of random women.

And to think Doctor X could be back home in Britain stacking shelves in Tesco.
