‘Brave, Bold & Fearless’


Cotswold Business Women…if you are looking for a bit of a Monday morning pick me up, some #mondaymotivation to get you though the day to Friday then look no further, I have just the thing for you!

Yesterday morning I was very happy to be eating these delectable pastries in the company of a lovely, varied group of Cotswold Business women within the gorgeous surroundings at The Old Stocks Inn, Stow on the Wold.



The morning started with an informal breakfast interspersed with chit chat and networking amongst ourselves whilst being well and truly looked after by the General Manager at The Old Stocks Inn, Charlotte Tuck. Charlotte has been with the hotel for almost 3 years and has seen it’s transformation from a fairly run down Coaching Inn to the fabulous 5 * boutique Hotel it is today.



It was Charlotte who devised the Breakfast Networking events for Local Ladies in business, wanting to provide an inspiring and comfortable networking opportunity to local Business women and so far the response has been fantastic. The breakfasts are held every 3 months and Charlotte has a great line up of speakers for the months ahead.



Yesterday’s speaker was Kerry Coombs,  Life Coach & Trainer.

Kerry works with clients helping them to define or redefine success, working out what makes them happy and excited, helping them to look at life with fresh eyes in order to create the best version of them! Kerry told us her story of how she has become a Life Coach having worked for many years in the Corporate Finance world where she explained she was merely ‘existing’ but wasn’t happy despite the trappings of ‘success’.




After a few false starts Kerry one day decided that enough was enough and embarked on her new journey and retrained as a Life Coach, realising her dreams and re – establishing her identity. A life changing step on this journey was hiring a Life Coach herself, one outside of her comfort zone but who helped her crystalize her vision by exploring her beliefs, recognising her negative life patterns and showing her how to let go of them.



Kerry’s story was inspiring, from the heart and just the thing to kick start you on a Monday morning and make you think a little bit more about what it actually is that keeps you ticking every day in this crazy life! As Kerry said to us yesterday..’you can change your life in a heart beat’. Find out more about Kerry in her own words here…

The Old Stocks Inn is a beautiful venue and so what better way to start the week…inspiring talk, chitter chatter amongst lovely ladies, coffee on tap and delicious pastries in a gorgeous setting.  As I often add to my posts…. ‘what’s not to love’ ?




It was also a GORGEOUS sunny day in the Cotswolds which is always a sure fire way to make me smile!
