My Next Chapter 2017
It's time to prioritise you and your dreams.
Let’s make 2017 the year when you choose YOU!
The year when you decide to take action on a dream that excites and fulfills you. Something that means something special to you, perhaps something that stretches or challenges you, that takes you out of your comfort zone.
The year when you encourage other women to do the same so we all lift as we climb.
Because your story, your dreams, your goals, your plans? They’re inspiring for you and for others.
And that’s what #MyNextChapter2017 is all about.
Welcome, I'm Angela Raspass and I'm so glad you're here.
What's my story?
I used to have loads of secret dreams, goals and plans.
Some of them were exciting and I loved thinking about them. The things I would do and the places I would go when I had the time… the impact I would make. The people I would help. The changes I would make to my business to make it a better fit for me.
But some were not quite so enjoyable. The self-doubt. The fear that I would never be able to actually create these dreams – who did I think I was? And the drinking to turn the volume down on my relentlessly critical inner voice – I was never going to share that one. It was definitely staying under wraps.
But unfortunately over time I discovered that when you try to numb the bad feelings, you numb the good feelings too. And whatever your tool of choice, alcohol, drugs, food, shopping, exercise, people-pleasing, the effect is the same.
Disconnection, Shame. Self-doubt. Guilt. Sadness.
Insides that just don’t match your outsides.
Luckily, eventually, with help and support, I flicked that switch and stopped numbing myself and now have 10 years of sobriety and lessons to draw upon. And I discovered that as I began to grow again, my confidence and self-belief returned and my life and business, flourished. Being a part of a supportive community in the recovery movement has been a big part of this wholehearted journey – us women benefit enormously from hearing similar stories so we know we are not alone.
I never want another woman to feel as crappy as I did or to stay stuck in the quicksand for as long as I did. I now know just how significant community, vulnerability, empathy and the power of example are. So I want you to experience this too!

WHAT IS #MYNEXTCHAPTER2017 FOR YOU?
You may have heard the expression "your self-worth equals your net-worth". However you measure that net-worth - in financial abundance, opportunities taken, dreams fulfilled, impact made, people helped, I know first hand that your belief in yourself - a strong sense of your value, your self-worth is absolutely critical.
Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.
I stand for second chances, new directions, authenticity, wholeheartedness, freedom from self-doubt and the confidence and self-belief to consciously craft a fulfilling Next Chapter business and life that leverages your life experience and fills your heart.
I believe in your unique story and your ability to help others shorten their own journey because of your experience and with your guidance.
And you can borrow our collective belief in you until you fully embrace your own...
YES I'M JOINING IN!
