A great book in front of a roaring log fire.
A glass of wine on the patio as the sun sets.
Spontaneous hikes through the open wilderness.
Days spent adventuring through life, daring to do the things you CHOOSE to do.
Life and business were supposed to be FUN.
This business was supposed to be your ticket to ENJOYING having the entire world at your beck and call.
Instead, you’re busy taking courses, studying options and WISHING you could just START already.
You’re mapping out your dream life and business rather than LIVING IT.
At this point maybe you can’t even remember what it is that you loved about it in the first place, about why you’ve daydreamed about this for months or years.
You know it’s not the feeling that there’s always more to learn, more to know and more to do. It’s definitely not all the things you’re working on now so that you’re ready, ready to be a business owner; a DREAM ACHIEVER. And it’s not the never-ending feeling that you don’t know what you’re doing.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
You are ready now. You know what to do and what actions to take.
No more “just one more course then I will know everything I need to know”
No more “when everything on my to do list is ticked off, I will be ready”
No more focusing on what you don’t know.
Trust that it’s your dream and you innately know how to go out there and get it.
Trust that your knowledge, skills and your ability to learn more when you need to, are enough.
Trust that it’s ok to make life FUN AGAIN.
It’s ok to play, explore and adventure your way to your dreams.
Trust that living
It’s Time To Take Your Business
from the drawing board
In two weeks.
27th April – 11th May 2019, in Cape Town South Africa
How are we going to help you create this transformation you ask?
Through a combination of well-designed activities and workshops (website development, social media, SEO, marketing, target audience and whatever else we FEEL LIKE EXPLORING) you will learn new, practical skills.
In amongst these, there will be time for action, time for playing and time for both group and one-to-one coaching sessions.
Daring to make business playful wouldn’t be complete without downtime to soothe your soul and treat yourself. There will be time for you, for focusing on your health and wellbeing, for eating fabulous food and drinking wonderful wine. We will explore what makes Cape Town The Mother City.
Working with Lottie was one of the best things I could have done to help advance my freelance career and making my life decisions since nothing about my life is ordinary. As someone who’s never followed society’s “rules” it was hard to find a coach who understood me and what I’m doing with my life. But Lottie gets it because she’s living the same less traditional path.
If you’re wanting to live outside the box and want someone who can help you live that life, I highly recommend seeing if Lottie is the right person to help guide you through it. I know she is for me!
Will leave This Fabulous Space with:
A fully functioning website that represents you and your brand so you don’t have to spend any more hours drowning yourself in wine thanks to the indecision over which platform to use.
Powerful and compelling website copy that tells your story, shows off your business and entices users into becoming clients.
A creative, individual logo that represents you, your personality, and your brand
A basic understanding of SEO enabling you to start driving traffic to your fabulous new website rather than crossing your fingers and hoping your target client magically finds you in the big old
Playful, fun photos for your website, social media, marketing materials – no more faffing about what photos to use.
Graphics templates – because we all know someone else’s graphics are going to be less critiqued than our own.
A social media strategy that doesn’t feel overwhelming, complicated or like a chore and that works for your target audience.
Systems and processes to ensure you’re on top of your accounts and cash flow right from the start – no more burying your head in the sand until it’s crunch time!
The confidence to take actions you know you want to instead of feeling overwhelmed by everything you are being told you need to do, empowering you to just get going.
Weekly group coaching sessions and ongoing support enabling you to continue to bounce ideas, vent, share your actions and keep being playful after touch down.
- 13 nights accommodation in beautiful, rustic, farm accommodation to pull you into a space that is just for you, just for your focus (no fam, no noise of responsibilities, nothing to distract you!).
- All meals while on the farm, prepared onsite using farm grown produce (help yourself breakfast buffet, light lunch, evening sit down meal, snacks) because we want you focused on your business for these two weeks!
- Group coaching and workshops (website development, social media, SEO, marketing, target audience and whatever else we feel like exploring!) providing you with new skills and answering those burning, never ending questions
- One-to-one sessions in which we pull together the ideas, knowledge, excitement and passion that’s burning inside you
- Two day website workshop (includes getting set up with WordPress, theme installation, plugin activation, 5 page design, header, footer and navigation design, email configuration and more) because we all like to be a little hands on with aspects of our business at the beginning!
- Geeky website related things to make sure your site does what it’s meant to (Basic website hosting for one year (upgrades available), lifetime use of a premium WordPress theme, premium WordPress plugins for website optimisation)
- Evening wine. Because. WINE.
- Tea, coffee, drinking water and juice to keep you hydrated and ready for action.
- Yoga sessions to take you into a space of thinking, feeling, and creating from your SOUL.
- Plenty of free time to enjoy the surroundings because we’re here to PLAY, right??
- Cheese and wine tasting at a local vineyard because it’s South Africa and they do cheese and wine right
- Hiking Table Mountain (taking the cable car is an option!) because no trip to The Mother City is complete without gazing out over this iconic landscape
- Trips to the beach to soothe your soul
- One night in a luxury game reserve hanging out with Africa’s Big 5. Because I love lions.
Just outside Cape Town, South Africa, Anna Beulah farm is an idyllic retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
As soon as I stepped foot on the farm in 2016, I knew it was special.
With good vibes, space to relax, beautiful landscapes and delicious food, it’s the perfect place to relax, unwind and learn to trust your intuition again.
I felt Lottie completely understood my situation and working through my intentions with her was extremely comfortable as she gently teased out all of the key areas of my personal and professional growth that I was feeling challenged by. I had previously had months of coaching, yet with Lottie, we drilled right down to the foundation of my ‘WHY’ and began to build some personal goals on that in such a short time. It was like flicking a switch, with the biggest realisation being I didn’t have to have the same goals and compare myself to all other the other people leaping from their corporate careers and really could take a less traditional path that works for me. I now have so much more clarity.
“What if I fail?
Oh my Darling, but what if you fly?”
Meet your host
Hi, I am Lottie
My experience with fear and self doubt brought me to this point. Having listened to my intuition and followed a less traditional path through life, I found myself suddenly caught up in trying to do everything ‘properly’.
I forgot about the past 3 years, the clients I have worked with to turn their dreams into reality, the people I have supported to take action and launch their business. I brushed this off as being fun and easy rather than work which is meant to be hard. I discredited what I have achieved because I wasn’t hustling to work every hour of every day (some days I read books and don’t even open my laptop). I ‘worked on my limiting beliefs’ that were obviously holding me back from making 6 figures.
I felt overwhelmed and miserable. I couldn’t even remember why I wanted to spend my days like this.
Digging deep I realised this discomfort was coming from me trying to create a vision for how I wanted my life to be and then attempting to steer it there. I was caught up in the chatter in my head and the expectations, goals and objectives of the people around me. I had lost trust in myself. Trust in my intuition. Intuition that has always steered me to where I want to be even when I didn’t know where that was.
Life and business should be fun and exciting.
We have enough less than delightful things to deal with (tax returns anyone?,) so why do we do our best to make the things that can be easy and light, difficult and overwhelming?
End your thinking that the life and business you love have to be hard.
I’m here to help you do that.
It’s my mission to make sure you love everything about what you do.
And that you feel secure enough to do them.
No more courses. No more doubt. No more webinars.
Trust your intuition. You’re ready for what’s next.
She not only listened and supported me, but helped to think of the bigger picture, see success in different ways, and set goals for going ahead.
By the time I’d finished a few sessions with Lottie, I’d applied for numerous new roles and set out on the path to turning my business around!
Take Me To Cape Town!
27th April – 11th May 2019

Instalments will be due on 31st January, 28th February and 30th March 2019.
What else Will I Need To Pay For?
You will need to pay for flights and any innoculations your Doctor recommends having. Most countries do not require a paid visa to visit South Africa but please check.
Once you land in Cape Town, your costs will be covered while on the farm and organised events. Should you choose to spend time away from the retreat, this will be at your own expense.
What Do I Need To bring?
Please bring your laptop, notebook, an open mind, sense of humour and be prepared to have fun! I will send out some pre-work activities to do prior to you arriving so that we are all ready to get going!
I don’t Like Hiking.
I will let you in to a little secret, niether do I! Conveniently, Table Mountain has a cable car so if you’re feeling less energetic or simply want to spend more time absorbing the view, that’s the route up for you!
How Will I Get There?
You will be responsible for booking your own flight to be in Cape Town on or before 27th April. I will collect you from the airport and can arrange accommodation for the night before if you prefer.
What Will My room Be like?
All rooms have two single beds and either a shared or private bathroom.
Can you Cater For Dietary Requirements?
Yes, I will check if you have any dietary requirements when we chat.
Can I Organise My Own Activities At The Weekend?
Yes, if you would rather do your own thing at the weekend instead of join us at the Game Reserve, you are very welcome to! I can assist in organising specific activities if you would like help.
Can I Stay Longer?
Not only is this possible, it is highly recommended!
If you would like to either spend more on the farm, or in South Africa before or after the retreat, please let me know. Having traveled the country extensivley I have some great suggestions of places to go and things to do!
How will We Fit Everything In?
You will be amazed at how much can be done when you’re doing the things you want to do! All of a sudden, pressure is lifted and work becomes playful making us more productive and focussed.
There will be some pre retreat action to take so we can get the ball rolling with your logo and website. We will discuss this when we chat but it does mean that you will be getting started on moving forward even sooner than March!
