The health capital of the business founder is the most important asset of any business. Yet self-limiting beliefs can often creep into our thoughts and lower our self-regard.

This session will furnish you with tools and strategies to help recognise and reframe unhelpful beliefs. Build more confidence to achieve goals and move ourselves and our business ambitions forward in balance and unison.
