What does it take to make that change?

Would you like to:

  • Flourish through change?
  • Master the law of attraction?
  • Eat lovely food without feeling like you're missing out?
  • Build your entrepreneurial mindset?
  • Thrive without anxiety?
  • Overcome grief?
  • Create a life you love?

Sometimes we know what we want but don't know where to start...or we know something is missing or wrong, but we can't quite work out what!

We would love you to join us for a whole day of inspiring speakers, who, by sharing their own stories of how they made significant change are passionate about encouraging you to do the same, with tips, techniques and awareness.

Our experts have been chosen as they walk their talk. They have first hand knowledge of how to make that change...and they are ready to share it with you!

Our aim is that by the end of the day you are energised, positive and ready to make that one change that will make all the difference to you.

Laura Barnett

Event MC


Read Bio +

Laura is all about Freedom To Live! She's been running her own business(es) since 2007; after 10 years in marketing and design she was looking for something that would offer her the opportunity to have the freedom and independence she craved. Being self-employed was the only way she could lead the life she wanted with the flexibility to support her family at a moment's notice.  She needed to be in control.

Laura met Nicky in 2013 and embarked on the Discover Your Bounce Programme which helped her to change her thinking, increase her motivation and design a life to her own ideals. The profound impact of Discover your Bounce was so great, and aligned with Laura's philosophy that the logical step was to become a director and help others to find the freedom to live their lives too!
