Bio:

My initial years while studying were spent learning all aspects of business from my dad who was self employed with a staff of over 300. I always say everyone has a story, my dad died at 69 on the operating table while under going a triple bypass. Yes he was stressed but it was a tablet for a tablet etc. My qualifications are in business development, strength and conditioning and nutrition and health. Preventative, proactive healthcare is the way of the future through digi-health platforms, health screening and education and empowerment. Health and Fitness Ireland was established 4 months after dad died.

Health and Fitness Ireland is now Ireland's leading mental and physical health education company in schools and clubs. Health and Wellness International was established last year as many of the corporates we are partnered with have a large number of staff working globally. HAWI is a Global Proactive Corporate Health and Wellness Company. We now have a team of 30 highly qualified and experienced staff that include psychotherapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, sports scientists, nutritionists, neuromuscular therapists and metabolic health technicians. At HAWI we protect the health of your company i.e. Structural Health, (company) Physical Health (company & employee) Mental Health (employee)

To say we are passionate about the world of proactive health is an understatement. The HAWI/HFI world is an amazing one that creates and supports realistic change to the mental and physical health of people of all ages. This in turn makes people more present at work, school, home or in sport, thus of course making their world and yours more productive and profitable in many ways.

Sara Anderson Life Coach
Bio:

I am a Life Coach based in Donegal and offer a space where clients can explore their life, identify the changes they want to make to make their life more happy and fulfilling, clarity goals, and work towards creating the life that they want. I have been involved in personal development and growth for three decades and learnt so much from wonderful wise teachers, training, authors and then over time developed my own realisations and insights.

I am a tapping coach, I use EFT, a tapping process, in my coaching sessions. It is a powerful way to shift thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that may be holding someone back. It can really go to the core of issues causing clients' stress. At the core of my work is empathy and compassion.  I have had depression for a lot of my adult life,  and self compassion was what really made a difference in my healing. I am passionate about raising awareness about the benefits of self compassion and encouraging people to be kind and loving to themselves. If people are kinder to themselves, they then  find relationships with others easier and life in general more sweeter. They also are more inclined to feel able to share their talents and skills with the world. "As we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fears, our presence automatically liberates other". ( Marianne Williamson)


Over a series of sessions, I want my clients to leave feeling happier and more relaxed in themselves, empowered to go out into the world, reach their potential and be their best self. I am also available for personal development workshops and courses. I can offer specific courses and then also tailor a course to meet the needs of a group or project.

Sí Jewellery
Bio:

As a very young child living in America, my parents were eager to instil within me an understanding of everything Irish, the language, the cultural and the mythology. Our bedtime stories were not the usual little red riding hood but were filled with Magic lands where you were forever young, boys who could defend a province with only his Gaoth Bulga, and fish that had the answer to everything. We were transported to Middle Earth and became central characters within my Dad’s own stories, I was queen Ailishín, queen of the fairies and this is where my Grá for Na Sídhe ( love for the Fairies ) started. Na Sídhe were a race of Irish Otherworldly beings with magical powers drawn upon the natural world.  I have taken their name as my Company name, and I use many of the Celtic symbols for my sterling silver ashes cremation or hair infusion pieces.


My Business started off as a hobby initially, -  a number of years ago my children were travelling away to compete in the World Kickboxing Championships and I wanted them to have something inspirational and protective, - as I could not find the right piece to fit the bill, I made it myself! I was then asked by a friend to make a piece for their child, and so on, as a result I took a leap of faith and started my business. I now create bespoke ashes / hair infused memorial pieces that bring comfort to those that are grieving. I am very blessed to be able to do what I love.

Kristin Smedley
Bio:

Kristin Smedley is a Speaker, Author, and NonProfit Founder/CEO. Her fun-loving spirit and energetic personality originally guided her life in the direction of a career in teaching. Kristin planned to be Teacher of the Year. But fate had other plans, and Kristin found herself shockingly dealt a double dose of darkness. Her two sons were each diagnosed with a rare blindness at four months of age.

As Kristin found and equipped her boys with the resources to help them thrive, they not only took on the world, but changed Kristin’s perception of blindness. She has dedicated her life to doing the same for millions of others that are given a blindness diagnosis.

In 2011, Kristin launched a mission to fund research and resources for children living with rare eye disease. In less than eight years, the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation has raised over a million dollars and achieved the first legislation in US history to be submitted in Braille—legislation that advocates for better resources for blind and visually impaired Americans. Kristin testified at the FDA on behalf of the first gene therapy for an inherited disease, Luxturna, and she was named the Pennsylvania Ambassador for the National Organization for Rare Disorders.

In 2019 Kristin published her first book, Thriving Blind: Stories of Real People Succeeding Without Sight.  The book achieved #1 New Release and Best Seller’s List on Amazon. The book and her TEDx Talk have been combined into a program for parents and educators to change the journey for blind children.

Kristin is known for her constant collaborations and partnerships to drive an entire field to progress. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her impact extraordinary.  Kristin is the 2019 recipient of the Global Genes Champion of Hope Award and has been voted the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Power Person of Bucks County, PA.

The Fast Way to Detox
Bio:

I am originally from France, and have been living in Ireland for the last 20 years with my Irish husband and 4 sons.  Over the years, I have developed a love of natural foods and the value of good healthy eating.

In early 2013, as my boys were growing up and needed me less, I decided to follow my passion and went back to school to study Nutritional Therapy.

In 2016, I graduated from the Irish Institute of Nutrition & Health (‘IINH’) with a Nutritional Science & Therapeutics Diploma, and a Nutrition & Lifestyle Coaching Certificate.

As a fervent believer in detoxification to obtain ultimate health and vitality, I have also regularly been attending fasting and detoxing retreats in France and Ireland over the last 9 years. Having experienced first-hand the body's tremendous ability to adapt and self-heal during a fast and a detox, I wanted to share this wonderful physical and mental well-being one can achieve.

In 2018, I attended the "Institut Supérieur de Naturopathie" (ISUPNAT) in Paris, France to train as a Coach in the theoretical and practical field of “fasting”.  The training also included a 14 day fast and field training in a retreat centre where I deepened my understanding and learnings of what is involved in accompanying fasting groups, with care and professionalism.

I now run 7 and 4 nights residential detox retreats in Wicklow using the Buchinger Method of fasting, and Juice fasting and I educate my clients on healthy lifestyle habits for optimal mind and body performance."

BabyBoss - The Twosie
Bio:

My name is Marina, I’m from and live in Co Mayo, Ireland, and I founded BabyBoss and created and designed the patented design and solution driven two part baby vest The ‘twosie’. The Twosie comes with 1 top and 2 bottom parts and is 100% organic. I am a mum of 1 girl, Anna Lily.

She is the reason that has made me see this project through to the very end.

A ‘lightbulb’ moment led me to create The ‘Twosie’, when I had to change Anna Lily 4 times in one hour due to a tummy bug, which also meant I had to remove all her clothes each time to remove the vest, where it was only the bottom part of the vest that was wet each time, which was very stressful for Anna Lily as was lethargic and unsettled. This lead me to search online for a two-part baby vest, but to no avail, this is how the ‘Twosie’ was born. Our ethos at BabyBoss is to make parents lives easier.

Bio:

I am founder and director of Yoga Ireland. I have been practicing yoga for over 26 years and qualified as a yoga teacher in 1996. I founded the company Yoga Ireland the same year at the age of 23. I have been running the business and active in teaching ever since. I opened my first yoga studio in Merrion square Dublin city in 1996 and it was a great success. I had myself and 8 other teachers offering yoga, pilates, yoga for pregnancy, yoga workshops and one to one sessions. I decided to take my training further and after 2 years with two medical doctors, also yoga teachers I qualified as a Yoga therapist.

I have been practicing Yoga Therapy for over 15 years now and specialise in helping people with stress management, back problems and thriving in their lives physically, mentally and emotionally. I work with clients through Yoga and much more than that. I guide them to a place of self -healing through yoga, mindfulness with simple technique to use in daily life. I feel privileged to be in a position to see people more forward and enjoying better health and success. To read more please go to my website yogaireland.ie

I was feeling pretty tired from running the business and I believe giving too much of my energy away. I had never been guided in this area, for instance how to maintain your own energy levels. I had heard of this thing called Reiki. I tried it and found it wonderful. It helped me to boost my energy levels and enhanced my awareness on self protection and boundaries to maintain and boost my energy levels. So I decided to train in this area so 10 year slater became a qualified Reiki master.

I now have a clinic in Clebridge, Co. Kildare., Authentic Tera Mai Reiki and see clients for weekly appointments. In everything I do I maintain a light hearted and enjoyable environment.

“Being Mindful daily can change your life, Mindfulness and energy awareness helps me to do that” Catriona Mc Cormack

I hope that I fundamentally encourage people to thrive in lives, by helping to nurturing their bodies, minds and emotional selves. My aspirations for my students and clients is that each person leaves my session either yoga or reiki feeling refreshed nourished and balanced and carries this into their everyday lives.

Your Style Your Story
Bio:

At Your Style Your Story we've created a platform that gives you the freedom to create your own style at a time that suits you, while being confident that your investment in today will keep you smiling for years to come. Everything was created to help busy women to have easy access to beautiful boutique styles at times that suit them best. I am an accountant and as a busy Mum of two boys and running an accountancy practice I always struggled with trying to shop for clothes as there simply weren't enough hours in the day - unless I could find a boutique that would stay open until 10pm at night.

All of the models on my shop are close friends of mine - all a different size but equally beautiful. I wanted women to really be able to get an idea of what our styles truly look like when wearing. All of our collections are hand picked to compliment each other and help women to build up a capsule style wardrobe to take the hassle out of knowing what to wear and to help make their daily lives a little bit more simple.

Our styles were chosen as they will transcend seasons and our collections include smart casual and office wear clothing, handmade leather handbags and a jewellery range. Collections include ranges from Greece, Sweden, Denmark and Holland. Next day delivery to all of Ireland and a no fuss returns / exchange policy.

Don't forget to sign up to our newsletter from our website as each of our subscribers (both current and new) are automatically entered each month into a draw to win a €100 voucher for our webshop. Don't worry I promise not to bombard you with emails but want to share our style and lifestyle tips as well as give you exclusive access to pre sales and new product launches.

• Physical level - How to feel comfortable in your own body.

• Mental level -Bring awareness and clarity to your thoughts, assumptions, attitudes and beliefs, which may be barriers to recovery.

Single Mums Business Network
Bio:

I set-up my award-winning company KIH Products in 2013 after designing the KIH Bed – a Pregnancy Cushion used by Massage Therapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors to enable clients to lay on their bellies at variable stages of pregnancy, in 2011 when I was heavily pregnant. I had also embarked on a Law Degree when I fell pregnant in 2011 and once I graduated in 2016 I published Finding Happiness and Freeing Your Spirit to Amazon to help others help themselves move forward in a positive way. (free on kindle unlimited). I am also a confidante, and offer complete discretion for high profile Single Mums who want to connect via KIH Holistics. Whilst I had worked full time age 15-35 my world changed when I became a single mum in 2012. Moving from paid employment and home ownership onto income support and rental property gave me a painful insight into how bad I would be made to feel for claiming those contributions and being a tenant.

Desperate to continue my love of working but also desperate to be a full-time mum started a long and painful journey of fighting for family and financial independence. Whilst I continually attempted to find work in sync with school that paid a decent wage, this proved very difficult. My journey has taught me more than I ever wanted to know and now I have set up the SMBN to connect and support other hard-working single mums. The primary objective of the SMBN is to help you gain exposure to your business. We concentrate on driving traffic to our members pages, so that you are seen. The secondary objective is to reduce stigma and dispel misconceptions that single mums are work shy. It is my passion to raise awareness of the real issue being that work is not in sync with school and wages are not in sync with inflation. Until those two things harmonise the SMBN will help you by increasing exposure to your business.

My passion is to contribute to today’s health and fitness industry in a positive, uplifting and supportive way.

I contribute by showing you the importance of movement for your health and that every little counts in an easy and uncomplicated way.

I help people to re-wire the way they look at health and fitness. I want to show you that you can FEEL good, and that FEELING isn’t a clothes size, it's not something you can hold in your hands. Is it something much greater than that. Taking care of your body changes everything in your life. How you function, how happy you are within your relationships, how productive you are in the workplace but most importantly how you deal with the every-day struggles that surround you. We have a duty of care to ourselves, to look after ourselves. So that we can live a fuller life. A life free of guilt, stress and overwhelm. At Pepper Hustle we are helping women all over the world achieve just that. Join the Revolution and Hustle Yourself Happy.

I always sensed Spirit from as far back as I can remember, however nobody grows up with the dream of being a medium. Spirit found me and after years of pushing them away, a life saving incident and relentless persuasion from my Spirit Guides I began to have people call me from out of the blue looking for readings, so how could I say no? Now I run my business from my home in Co Tipperary, offering readings in person as well as online to the world. I also offer Trance Healing and Numerology readings and I also teach people how to tune into their own abilities.

I am passionate about helping people to find ways to improve their health and wellness by taking simple steps to care for themselves! My focus is on Colon Hydrotherapy, Holistic Massage and Cupping Massage. My own journey from poor health to thriving has influenced how I work and the treatments I do. I started because I wanted whatever I did with my day to make a difference to at least 1 person. Having come from a financial services background this was distinctly lacking in my daily work. Colon Hydrotherapy was a revelation to me after years of sorting out my health, it was the final piece in the puzzle to help resolve my gut issues! I love it and want to spread the word far and wide about how much it can help others and how simply it works! Massage allows me to help others connect in with how they are really feeling and tune into their self-care choices to create ongoing improvements in their day to day health! I am now moving into the field of training and am the official RICTAT, Colon Hydrotherapy Training Ireland. This is how I hope to spread the benefits of Colonics throughout Ireland.

Coach
Name:
Miri
Business:
Miriam Kilmurry Services
Bio:

'Miri' runs Miriam Kilmurry Services specialising in public speaking, voice coaching, TV presenting and corporate language training. In 1986 Miri found herself working in Paris delivering corporate language training to high powered business executives such as the Artistic Director of the Paris Opera House, lawyers, space engineers, bankers and all at the tender age of 21 years. From there her career enabled her to live and work in Africa (Nigeria), Egypt, Spain, the United Kingdom and finally back home to Ireland in 2005, the year she also turned 40.

Now came the hard part. Taking her hard earned experience back home brought no end of problems and age discrimination. The glass ceiling hit hard, particularly in the last 10 years, a reality facing countless other Irish women who in the 1980s were encouraged to 'go away and come back with a language' only to find themselves ignored. But 'Miri' persevered and today works as a consultant to companies and schools in Ireland and abroad.

Miri trained as a TV presenter with Glen Kinsey of Positiv Productions and will be hosting her own Saturday show from July. She is author of two books, 'Eire's WWI War Poet: F.E. Ledwidge' and her family's biographical memoir 'Tehran Calling' published under her maiden name Boylan O'Gara.

Her message to women is keep persevering and definitely keep in touch with your network. No matter how tempted, 'never give up.' Miriam Kilmurry Miriam Kilmurry Services
