*NEW COHORT STARTING SEPTEMBER 2022*
Joy of Business
Make this the year you fall in love with your business all over again
If the past two years have taught us anything it’s that life is too short.
Too short to not be enjoying life, to not be sharing your gifts, to not have the impact you know you can have.
Does any of the following sound familiar?
You work too much. Do you crave a 4 day work week but never seem to make it happen?
You agree to work that just isn’t you out of habit, pressure or external influence. Every time you do it eats away at your soul a little bit.
You’re not bringing enough of YOU into your work – perhaps you long to create a unique programme of your own instead of delivering other peoples’ content.
You have lots of ideas for your business but struggle to settle on which one to focus on at any given time – this lack of focus eats up your energy and leaves you depleted.
Your, ‘One day I’ll…’ keeps on getting pushed back.
Something has to give, and right now it’s your time and energy.
Emer O’Leary is such an outstanding, inspirational, and effective instructor that I have completed not one but two of her courses, Secrets of Simple Graphics and Draw Out Your Future. And I plan to sign up again!
Each class is a golden opportunity to be in a calming no stress experience in the company of delightful colleagues and a master facilitator who is full of wisdom and charming wit. When in the zoom classes, we all feel transported to a better place.
Emer is wonderful human being, who also happens to be a talented facilitator, coach and graphic illustrator. You will benefit as much from her presence as from the wealth of knowledge she has to share, so I would highly recommend working with her.
The Joy of Business is about cutting through the heaviness and confusion of business. It’s about connecting with what puts you in a state of joy, alignment and flow.
It involves three simple steps:
1. Getting clear on your vision – I work with you to get clear on exactly what you want.
Do you have a vision of working a 4 day week so you can spend more time with your family? Do you dream about finally writing that book? Do you yearn to spend more time doing work that sets you alight? Is your vision about creating more impact on the world?
With Joy of Business we will be DRAWING out your vision! Research shows this increases your chances of success by 42%
2. Creating a joyful action plan to support that vision – If the goals that support your vision feel heavy, obligatory or simply not aligned to where you are right now then you are unlikely to follow through on them. We see joy as an integral part of the process.
3. Being held accountable as you encounter hurdles along the way – Realising your vision involves getting out of your comfort zone. This group will ensure you stay on track.
Emer’s infectious enthusiasm leaves me feeling inspired every time I do one of her courses. I recently attended her Draw out Your Future course. It was a fabulous six weeks.
I learned a lot, got to play about with drawings, and be supported and encouraged by an amazing group of like-minded individuals. Goals I never knew I had appeared from the sea of infinite possibilities! I did her Secrets of Simple Graphics course a couple of years ago and it changed the way I write, teach and train. She makes everything so fun and accessible. Just brilliant.
I really enjoyed the visioning and the encouragement to draw and ‘see’ our thinking and feelings. I felt you ran/facilitated it really well Emer with encouragement, a ‘light touch’ but holding the space firmly, and a sense that you believed in our future selves. Thank you 🙂
Join me on this joyful journey and look forward to…
Clarity – When you know exactly what you are aiming for it makes the ‘how’ so much easier
Confidence – When you have a clear vision you stand in your power. (And when you stand in your power you attract people to you.)
Energy – Leap out of bed excited about the day ahead because you know you are moving one step closer to your vision. You are intrinsically motivated to make things happen!
A quiet sense of knowing you are on the right path. This melts away all the ‘heaviness’ of running a business.
I knew you had been successfully organising open sessions for several years, and I wanted to learn from your experience. What was particularly helpful was having the “mind map” done so nicely and logically by you, drawing, during our discussion. It put things into perspective. Also, talking about my fears and worst case scenarios made me see that there are good options even if things don’t work out perfectly. I would certainly recommend this to others. In a very short time, you helped me make order in my thoughts, see a few options I hadn’t seen and tame my fears. Really appreciated! 🙂

This has felt so much more than a course. It’s really felt like a timely community of amazing women who are each seeking out what it really means to live their lives fully.
I appreciate the way you’ve made things really holistic, and about us and about our thinking. I think that’s really testament to your investment in us relationally.
I really want to encourage you really – what an amazing gift you’ve got – doing this with real integrity and warmth and enabling brilliant relationships so a massive thank you – it’s a real gift.
Emer has an engaging style and encourages a sense of camaraderie amongst group members, which enabled us to develop strong connections and support one another both during the sessions and in the Facebook group. I loved the way the programme flowed, and the visual images and imagery that Emer used both in the exercises we did and in her language. It really helped me to explore new ideas and options that I don’t believe would have come to the surface otherwise.
I would absolutely recommend this programme. Without feeling overly dramatic or too intense, it was a highly impactful programme and it’s still resonating with me weeks after we finished.
‘In my line of work, I rarely come across talented and creative individuals like Emer, who can bring out our latent talents to the fore; and influence and improve the way we work. While Emer’s technical ability as a visual thinker is without doubt, I am also impressed by her relaxed confidence, ability as a coach to command a room, ability to change mindsets, and her constructive feedback. As a visual thinker, coach and facilitator, Emer has my highest recommendation.’
Dates and Times
***New cohort starting September 2022***
Meeting of Minds
8am -12pm UK time
10am – 1130am UK time
For anyone at a sticking point or in need of mixing up how they approach their goals, I would highly recommend attending the DOYF course.
I think for me the particularly useful aspects were the way that a graphical representation helps to make the brain work in a different way. I am a very linear person and this approach enabled me to see a much “bigger picture” perspective that I found invaluable. I really missed the programme once it was finished! I would thoroughly recommend it.
