ARE YOU TIRED OF HOLDING YOURSELF BACK?
Do you have a growing desire to step into something new? Or to stretch and grow, to become more visible and make a bigger contribution?
You’ve probably heard the call for some time now, but you've pushed it aside. Put your dreams on hold whilst you focused on everyone and everything else. Or you've stayed in a safe place, not expanding or changing direction, because you're not sure you can make it work.
It's time to pause and take a breath. To connect with what you really want.
I've both seen and experienced, the three-part challenge that we often bump up against when contemplating purpose and change.
Firstly, we can experience a lack of clarity. "What is it that I actually want to do, change or be?" are questions that can leave you... uncertain. You may have lost touch with your passions, with your sense of purpose, energy, and ambition.
Secondly, even if you are able to clearly envisage your future, what you'd like to do and create... doubt and comparison can kick in. Your Inner Critic lets you know quietly and insidiously or loudly and contemptuously what little chance you have of actually making this happen.
Thirdly, you make the mistake of equating the value of what you do with the value of who you are. And in doing so, perceive your hesitations, learning curves and mistakes as evidence of your core unworthiness.
Although you might not actually go around saying out loud that you're not good enough, not worthy or capable of what you dream of, it's often how you feel inside.
And when you combine self-doubt and a deep belief of not being enough with a lack of clarity, they feed on each other, looping back and forth again and again and you have a perfect recipe for a life only half lived.
How do I know this?
Because I've been there. And so have a great many wonderful women just like you.
I held a survey a few years ago and just under 90% of the 185 women responded to the question “what’s holding you back?” with the answer “Me. My lack of self-belief”. I see this same misbelief play out with my clients too. It's not their lack of skill, talent or experience that holds them back. It's how they see themselves and what they consciously, or unconsciously, believe about themselves.
And that's just not ok.
Your voice, your energy, your mission, your message, deserves to be released so you can flourish in Your Next Chapter, blending contribution with fulfilment, however that looks for you.
I know how it feels to be stuck in the gap between who you are and who you want to be, at a loss as to how to close that gap. To feel frustrated, disappointed and resigned.
I still visit that place on a bad day. But the difference today is that I no longer stay there. And you don't need too either.
Your journey begins on the inside.
How would it feel to really trust yourself? To own your value and fully know your worth? To be able to explore options and possibilities that spark your curiosity and enliven your heart. To make choices that support your growth and authenticity?
It's from that space that you can powerfully turn your ideas into action, allowing yourself to be fully seen. To introduce and market the services you really want to deliver. To put the price point on that program you know it deserves. Your possibilities are infinite...
When you let go of comparison and the old, unsupportive and thoroughly untrue stories about not being enough the world opens up for you. You might not even be aware of the influence some of those stories have over you. But you'll soon experience the power of letting them go.
And that’s why it's helpful to navigate your way into Your Next Chapter with the guidance and insights of someone with a fresh perspective, a set of seriously useful tools, and the wholehearted compassion that only comes from having journeyed from self-doubt to self-worth herself.
Someone who’s been there before. Who knows what it’s like to be stuck in quicksand and who’s come out the other side, fully owning who she is, and able to see and believe in your value too.
I'M DELIGHTED TO MEET YOU!
Hello, I'm Angela Raspass
I'm a Next Chapter Business and Life Mentor for women in their 40's and beyond who are yearning to step into their full potential in business and life.
After a corporate career, I'd grown my own successful marketing agency business from my dining room table to an office and a small, full-time team by 2012. I had a wonderful husband, two great kids, and a beautiful home…
Even though things looked good on the outside, that had a lot to do with projection and pride. I knew I'd created a business unconsciously. I'd leveraged my skills and followed the shoulds and those strategies had worked. Until they just didn't anymore. Until I realised that bigger does not necessarily mean better. My business was no longer a fit the woman I'd become, a woman utterly changed by overcoming addiction and living in sobriety for over 6 years at that time.
The lessons I'd learned in the Recovery Movement had opened my eyes and my heart. They'd allowed me to excavate and embrace my self-worth. I'd written a new story of enoughness, and once you know your value, once you change from the inside out, it can never be "business as usual" again.
Success has to be redefined by you. Designed on your own terms, with your truth and values at the core.
And so that's what I did, choosing to close my agency and pivot from consulting to mentoring. I now share a potent blend of personal and business development tools that help my clients, wholehearted women like you, to unearth, live and work by what's true for them too.
Women who oscillate between desire and doubt.
If you're frustrated by a sense of knowing that you've not yet reached your potential, contributed what you are capable of, or committed to what you're really aching to do, this program will help you to unlock yourself.
- Tired of listening to that negative voice inside, but not sure how to quieten it
- Yearning to start that business, change direction, launch that new service, apply for that promotion, go on that adventure, try something new... but it just stays on the drawing board
- Stuck in comparison, feeling less than, not enough, that you've left it too late
- Unsure of how to turn your ideas (and you have no shortage of those) into reality, what steps to take, what steps not to take. It just feels too hard and you're not sure it will work anyway...
- Berating yourself - surely by now, at this age you "should have it together?"
- Spending a lot of time feeling isolated, without like-minded people that you can truly connect with
It's never too late to turn the page and begin a new chapter with your heart and mind wide open.
WHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER?
The Worthy Program is a personalised mentoring experience, a guided journey out of self-doubt and into clarity and strong self-worth. It condenses all that I've learned in the last 14 years with my Self-Worth Trilogy at its core.
Your investment of time and energy with me includes:
- Fortnightly personal mentoring sessions - deep and wide wholehearted conversations
- Set exercises and challenges to complete between sessions to anchor and expand your new insights
- Email, phone and message support as needed between sessions
- Recommendations for further reading and viewing (my favourite books, Ted Talks and more)
The Self-Worth Trilogy
Together, we'll be exploring how to:
- Reconnect to your core values and value, your strengths and experiences that act as your compass and catalysts
- Overcome the negative thoughts and self-talk that are served up by your Inner Critic.
- Unlock the numbing behaviours that stop you from resolving misbeliefs, resentments, self-sabotage and addictions, the unhealthy behaviours, patterns, habits and thinking that are out of alignment with the woman you want to be.
- Break free of The Comparison Trap so you can appreciate and confidently share your unique self and services
- Anchor yourself in calm confidence with mindfulness and spirituality.
- Self-advocate with assertiveness and self-respect
- Create and follow an inspired action plan to take you from where you are to where you want to be
- Embody and radiate worthiness from within
I had reached a crossroads and decided to leave my secure job to venture out in my own business.
While I was confident that there would be an opportunity for my business to succeed, I was somewhat less confident in myself.
I knew I had untapped potential but would be competing with a lot of consultants and I needed to set myself apart from them...
I first met Angela at an event she ran at my son’s school. The hour seminar was wonderful…I loved her honesty, enthusiasm and passion for helping women find themselves in the midst of ‘life’.
Angela’s own life is an inspiring tapestry of adversity and accomplishment, which, coupled with her marketing, life coach skills & business acumen, make her a great person to mentor other women through personal and career changes.
A WHOLE NEW WORLD OPENS UP WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AGAIN
Today I stand confidently with a deep belief in my own worth. It's the foundation for how I show up in the world as a Businesswoman, Wife, Mother, Friend and Next Chapter Mentor for women in their power years!
My experience has gifted me absolute proof that it's possible to realign your business and life from the inside out. It's taught me that this is an evolution, not a revolution, that personal expansion is a process, not an event.
And, most importantly, it's taught me that reclaiming your self-worth generates sustainable, significant change.
I'm not "fixed" and I'm certainly not perfect. I'm a work in progress and always will be as more layers are both peeled away and added.
The difference is that I now have tools, resilience and a far healthier and kinder self-regard to rely on so that I can bounce back quicker than I used to. I am more willing to take risks and back myself these days. I trust myself. I am gentler on myself. And I am committed to taking care of myself.
For me, that also means having my own support team and I no longer wait until I am falling over before I call on them! I continue to attend Recovery Meetings and I am a member of a Mastermind for my business and personal growth.
Sometimes I think, "Imagine if I'd found these practices and tools sooner?". That's why I've created The Worthy Program.
Imagine how you will feel stepping into the Next Chapter of your business and life with confidence and clarity.
Angela has helped me to catapult my business not only with her wealth of skills, but also in her ability to help me build my own confidence and belief in myself. I truly believe no-one can succeed if their self-worth is in tatters.
I have thrown my beliefs away around not being a sales and marketing person and now know I am and have always been a natural networker and connector. I am now constantly watching that I don’t over give, that I don’t rescue all my clients and I don’t devalue my work or myself by under charging.
We were half way through my first session when Angela helped me to see something that was right in front of my face but I had never connected the dots…I was sooo happy that I could finally pinpoint where one major issue in my life had started – I almost jumped up and hugged her!
I love working with her – she doesn’t judge, no answer is wrong, when I ask me a question and I’m unsure where to start she gives me pointers to help me begin, (usually I would get embarrassed when I couldn’t think of an answer).
