LIFE. DONE BY DESIGN
Go from feeling like a stressed-out working woman doing it all and only just holding it together to becoming the master of your life, watching your family and your career thrive as you confidently design a life you love.
NEXT COURSE STARTING 11TH JANUARY 2021
Are you a busy, capable woman and yet feel like you’re being pulled in multiple directions and expected to do it all?
Do you wish you had the chance just to stop, take a breath and just catch up with yourself?
Would you like the time to reassess who you are, where you’re going and who you are becoming in the process?
If you answered YES and want to feel like a more confident and truer version of who you really are then now is the time to step up and do life by design – on your terms and in your way.
DID YOU THINK WHEN YOU GREW UP YOU'D HAVE IT ALL?
An amazing career that allowed you to contribute and give back. Where you could climb the corporate ladder based on your experience and expertise and be respected for your knowledge the unique perspective you bring?
A beautiful family that supports you, that you could nurture and grow with a partner who shares your values and vision for the future?
A life that’s exciting, fun and full of surprises. One that’s financially secure and allows you to own your own home, drive a nice car and have regular family holidays?
A circle of friends you could spend time with, share the ups and downs with and lean on when you needed them?
Only to find life’s harder than you expected. That there is more to juggle than time in the day. And that while you have all of these things there’s still something not quite right?
Welcome to the world of the modern woman!
YOU'RE PROBABLY THINKING...
“I’ve got everything I ever wanted but I’ve got this uncomfortable niggling feeling that won’t go away”
“My girlfriends have turned into facebook friends. We really need to make more of an effort to catch up – but to be honest it’s just another thing on my endless to do list”
“I’m overwhelmed by the busyness of having a career, kids and a household to run. I don’t know how everyone else does it”
“I’d love some help around the house but we’ve got so many expenses with the mortgage, car payments, school fees and sports I just can’t see it happening“
“I can’t complain or say anything because I should be grateful for what I have”
"I love my partner but we just don’t have time for each other at the moment. It’s impossible to have intimate relationship when everyone wants a piece of me”
AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
These thoughts are normal and more common than you think.
And if you’re thinking these thoughts it's not because there’s something wrong with you or you’re not good enough or because you’ve somehow failed.
NO, it’s because as women we are expected to do everything AND do everything in a mans world.
Now before we get any further let me be clear I am not a man hater. In fact, I love men and have three of my own that I adore (see I even put a pic with me and my beloved as he's one of my all time faves). I also feel for men, because like women they’ve also been taught some untruths that do not serve their soul. However, that is a course for someone else to run. My focus is on YOU.
THE THREE TRUTHS I WANT YOU TO KNOW
Regardless of our gender we are all made up of masculine and feminine energy and as women we tend to carry more feminine energy. However, modern life requires us to tap more into our masculine - the energy that lets us hustle and grind. We don't have time for our more feminine traits as stuff just needs to get done. And so, we end up unbalanced. We’re human beings living in a human doings world!
Woman are cyclical by nature yet living in a linear world. Regardless of what stage of life you find yourself in, energetically women cycle every 28 days. The world revolves around a 24 hour time frame. Therefore, we have to adapt and in doing so go against our natural rhythms and flows – no wonder everything feels like a struggle at times!
Women carry the mother wound – a generational wound that goes back to rise of the patriarchy where women healers and intuitives (witches) were burnt at the stake for speaking out. Women’s “magic” was feared and through a process of demonisation women where not only shamed and publically outed for their wisdom but also turned against each other destroying the foundations of the sisterhood. This shame and fear lives on, passing through each generation silencing women keeping us small and disconnected.
ARE YOU STILL WITH ME?
Now we've got that out on the table let me tell you what I know about you
You want to be great in your career but you don’t want to play the politics, hustle and grind or grow b*lls to prove you have what it takes. Oh, and while you don’t want to be at your boss’s beck and call 24/7 you secretly love that they need you – the smart, savvy, grown up version of you.
You don’t want to miss out on living life with your kids as you see them grow up so fast in front of you and no matter how hard you try you just can’t seem to slow that down! But you've also worked hard for your career and you're torn between the two. You feel like you have to choose between them, that you can't have both. And, if you do, you won't do either as well as you want to.
You love your partner, but you don't have the time or energy for them. You want to feel more connected, more loving like you used to. Things might be different if you had some help - without having to ask. And why is it they don't understand how hard it is for you juggling e-v-e r-y-t-h-i-n-g?
You want to hang out with your gal pals without kids or partners in tow. You just want to hang out, drink a glass of wine two, paint your toenails and indulge some girly ME time but there’s always something more pressing to do. And anyway when you do make the time you end up feel guilty and obligated to make it up to everyone. How can you relax feeling like that?
You’re tired. That in-your-bone’s- tired. But the only solution to getting sometime to yourself and some exercise in is to get up at 5:00am and even less sleep definately isn’t going to cut it.
You suffer from a low level of anxiety. There’s this cloud of worry that just hangs low enough for you to notice it. It doesn’t stop you from functioning, but it keeps you small and in a mild state of fear – about keeping it all together, all of the time. One missed step and BOOM – chaos will reign.
You can't say no. After all there's nothing more shameful than being labelled as selfish now is there?
IF ONLY THERE WAS A WAY TO...
REDISCOVER the parts of you that make you uniquely who YOU are – not the mum version, the employee version or the partner version. The one you used to know and have fun with and really like a lot. You know the chilled one.
REDEFINE what's really important to you in this season. Give yourself some slack and give your self permission to be perfect at a few things - not everything.
UNRAVEL the limiting beliefs about who you are meant to be and how you are meant to behave so making changes (even the smallest of ones) don’t feel like it will lead to everything falling apart.
REDISCOVER your relationship patterns and make space for growth and understanding so you can connect more deeply with your partner, have fun with your kids, have guilt free girl time and set healthy boundaries.
RELEARN what it means to be a woman in the modern world and understand that its not that you can't have it all. It's about having what makes YOU happy, not what everyone else says you need to be happy.
RECONNECT with the inner wisdom that already resides in you and learn to trust her once again. After all she has ALL the answers to all your questions.
REDESIGN your life on your terms, according to your rhythms and the beat of your own drum to become the woman, partner, mother , friend you are destined to be.
WELL GUESS WHAT? THERE IS!
I am excited to invite you to join me for my six week course Life. Done By Design. An online course and membership you can come back to over and over again as life changes and evolves, with me Emma Mason, mindset mentor and coach. I am passionate about women living into their potential. You see I believe that empowered women who live passionate lives can change the world and the world needs more kindness, more compassion and more connection. When we as women step into our superpowers we live and lead with out hearts. We role model what's possible and we inspire a new generation to do the same.
Before I understood the power of taking charge and designing of my own life on my terms:
I thought life was fate and set in stone and that we just had to prepare for what would be thrown our way. That I had little say in how it would play out, and that the only power I held was how I chose to react.
I became a single mum of three kids under 9, moved state and gave up my entrepreneurial dreams to do the responsible thing and get a “safe” job. I did what was expected of me, not knowing that I had other choices.
I remarried and survived the tumultuous years of raising teenagers with a step-parent, and that took our relationship to the edge on many occasions. Statistically (and emotionally) it should never have survived.
I lived with all the things – great career, family, houses, cars, overseas holidays but I also lived with a constant feeling of worry and dread. I felt it could all fall apart at any moment and that I just needed to keep moving to keep it all together. That I was the glue and it was on my shoulders to make sure that no one else had to carry the burden.
I people pleased my way through my career and when I reached more senior levels of management I fought becoming “one of the boys” and eventually resigned from a career I’d loved because I didn’t know how to navigate the stress that came from working in a way that didn’t align with my values, my rythms or how I saw myself.
I run four separate businesses all of which I’m navigating through Corona Virus. I’m not stressed and I’m not worried. I know I have everything I need to survive and thrive though hard times.
I work more effectively, and I am more energised than ever before because I listen to my body and am guided by it.
I’m clear on where I’m heading and who I am becoming. I can change my mind on how I get there and I no longer fear what other people will think or say.
I am in a deeply committed and loving relationship because I learnt to swap expectation with anticipation.
I admire my three young adult children from afar knowing I have given them what they need to make their way in the world.
My life is simple and I choose not to allow stress, fear or worry be the predominant factor in my decisions. Instead I align my decisions with my dreams, aspirations and my intuition.
And, if it helps I have a Bachelor in Arts (Psychology) a Graduate Certificate in Adult Education and a Masters in Knowledge Management (organisational culture) as well as a 25 year career spanning Organisational Learning and Development, in both the private and public sector, spending the last 5 years of my corporate career in Human Resources Management.
HERE'S WHAT OTHERS HAD TO SAY
I joined Emma’s course Life. Done By Design to get a clearer picture and access tools to deal with my past, present & future me. I really wanted a process to find a “better me:” By doing the exercises, delving in and pondering on the issues and stumbling blocks that have previously got in the way I found a clearer path for achieving peace in my thoughts and my actions going forward.
Each week I really looked forward to receiving new content and delving into it. I really loved the live call support as it allowed the opportunity for me to make sure I was on the right track. I’ve now set up new habits to help on the ‘journey’. I have a clear path forward, the confidence to work on me and make the time for it. I am important!
I believe Emma has nailed the process here. It’s not a long overwhelming course. Instead, it builds on simple steps each week to build new habits and ways of thinking about the 'stuff' that clutters our head.
Before I completed this course, I was floundering and couldn’t find anything that resonated with me. Life. Done by Design did and now I have a clear path going forward, I feel less burdened and lighter in my soul.
I found Emma’s course Life.Done By Design when I was in the middle of making big life decisions about whether to fully immerse myself back into the growth of my own business or extend my time in a safe and secure contract job. I loved the course overview. It resounded for me at many levels - both professionally and personally, and it just felt it had come along at the right moment!
Now I have completed it I feel I have greater insight into how by looking at the goals I have set for myself, that I can unpack the expectations of what the results may be (conscious and unconscious). This now allows me to step back and see if there are other ways to achieve these 'results' and be very aware of the reason why I am working towards those goals. This way of thinking has opened up the possibly to adopt other strategies to also get those needs met in other more creative or better ways.
I really enjoyed the open and honest discussions, and the chance to have some thinking really challenged and new options opened up for me to consider.
Before completing this course, I would have described my life as manic. But now I feel more settled and a lot clearer about how my big life changes came about. I can now see the different choices that are available to me and I’m looking at these with a more a more heart centred perspective.
If you are considering this course, do it! I think you have nothing at all to lose, only things to gain. As businesswomen we can spend so much time on the practical and rationale aspects of business planning. This course helps uncover a wonderful aspect that can only enhance our self -understanding and what we bring to the business as 'us'.

I joined Emma’s course Life.Done By Design to help me move forward by being more decisive about which ideas for the future i should be implementing, understanding why and being confident with my choices. Since completing the program I understand myself better, understand what stops me from creating the future that I want. I’ve now been able to implement some first steps with more confidence.
I really enjoyed the topics, the courseware, the discussion and moving through the course with my group, who were extremely supporting and understanding. Emma is a great facilitator! I now have a new network of supportive like-minded people, a forward plan for the future, a great set of resources to look back on and continue to work on over time as I continue to move through the process.
This course is not like other courses and is designed by a woman for women. The content is very unique. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to learn more about themselves and how they can harness their inner wisdom, their values, their motivation and the program's resources to design and build the life they want to live.
Before I completed the course, felt like I was treading water and putting off important decision making and making excuses. Now I feel more confident to go out and get what I want in my life. I have more clarity, more motivation and more confidence to continue to unpack and remove my blockers and move forward.
