Stressed? Broke? Need to change your life?

I know that you are able to create a life full of abundance, because I did – and if I can do it anyone can!

You don’t have to wait until you’re rich, or even remotely wealthy, to start seeing changes! I’ve transformed my life from one of massive debts, stress and long hours in boring jobs to one where I semi-retired both myself and my husband in our 30s. All of this was achieved BEFORE I was wealthy.

How I can help you

I will teach you the powerful yet simple steps I took to change my life, the exact steps that have had success time and time again in not only my own life but in the lives of my students, friends and family.

My work is not about wishful thinking or hoping for a better outcome. It focuses on simple (and incredibly easy) practical methods that when followed work like magic.

What is abundance?

an extremely plentiful or over sufficient quantity or supply

This definition isn’t quite true when we think of an abundant life.

 In order to have an abundant life there needs to be balance otherwise the result is stress, overwhelm and misery.

What a minimalist lifestyle is NOT

Minimalism is not living with only a handful of possessions. It is not taking a vow of poverty. It is not an art movement or a style of home decor. It is not a style of dressing or the make-up you wear (or don’t). It is not changing yourself, your dreams and goals to fit into a stereotype. It is not a means of feeling superior to others.

What a minimalist lifestyle is

A minimalist lifestyle is a way of living that focuses on the things you love. The people, the things you love to do, your dreams and goals. It makes these the priority in your life. Crafting a life in this way enables you to create financial abundance (so that you can love your life whilst removing any financial stress) and time abundance (so that you can actually do the things that make you happy).

Benefits of creating abundance through minimalism

By creating abundance through minimalism you will create balance in your life. You will have both the time and money to do the things you love and to achieve your goals. Stress and overwhelm will be replaced with calm productivity. Things you once believed impossible will be within your reach. 

About Me

Mum & wife, business woman, cake eater, beach lover, nature nerd, minimalist and queen of afternoon naps. 

I don’t just talk the talk. I practice what I teach.

Some of the many goals I’ve achieved include:

  • Extensive travel – including selling our home and belongings to travel Scandinavia in a motorhome.
  • Taking a grown-up gap year (I was 25) and living in a beautiful cottage, surrounded by wildlife, on a Scottish estate.
  • Building a successful web and hosting business (Swell Pixel) from scratch and teaching myself all the necessary skills (my degree is archaeology and I had no formal qualifications in anything IT related)
  • Turning a few neglected acres of land into a productive smallholding
  • Moving to my dream location on the coast of north Cornwall in 2017
  • Allowing both myself and my husband to semi-retire in our 30s

Full testimonial from Gemma Montgomery: 

“I first met Lorna 10 years ago. I was taking the plunge of starting my own business & Lorna helped to design and develop my website. As well as helping with the technical front, she was a mentor to me, offering me sound business advice.

Years later, watching Lorna and her family redesign a life on their terms & move location, really inspired me and showed me what’s possible. Here I am and one year on since my family and I have done the same, with Lorna’s support. We now live in a location we love, have redesigned how we work, the kids are thriving and more importantly, we have the lifestyle change we were looking for.

It wasn’t always easy as even positive change feels scary, but Lorna helped me navigate the uncomfortable feelings. If you feel stuck and want to make a changes. I can highly recommend Forge and Thrive.”
