Teaching you how minimalism creates abundance

Hi, I’m Lorna! I’m not magic or special. I’m absolutely not the most hardworking person in the world, in fact I’m pretty lazy. BUT my life is full of abundance and I’m an expert at achieving goals. If I can do it then so can you. 

My Story

I was broke, exhausted, constantly overwhelmed and stressed out by trying to make ends meet every month.

I’d fallen into the trap of societal expectations and, to an extent at least, consumerism. Before starting a family we’d go on numerous holidays and adventures, we sold our home to travel and had taken a gap-year to live in Scotland, volunteer and learn about conservation. Our life was focused on fun.

Once we had our son we felt we needed to grow up and live more conventionally. We bought a family home that we loved but that stretched our budget to it’s very maximum. The house needed furnishing, we needed a sensible car, daily living expenses mounted up. We didn’t have an extravagant lifestyle by any means and yet we struggled financially.

It took getting to breaking point to realise that there must be another, much simpler way.

My Values & Beliefs

Family

Happiness

Balance

Abundance

Empowering others

Adventure

Community

I questioned why we had to choose between being financially stable and having fun. It dawned on me that by focusing on our key values we wouldn’t have to. It was a realisation I wish had dawned on me years ago! 

We didn’t have to give up our house or the things we loved. There wasn’t a trade off between time and wealth. The realisation that we could have adventures and be on firm ground financially changed our lives.

That realisation came in mid-2011. Within a very short space of time we were back on our feet, we started saving money for a deposit on a home in our dream location, went on many holidays each year, renovated our home, acquired neglected land to create a smallholding and began building a successful business (Swell Pixel).

In 2017, once our son finished primary school, we moved to our dream location. By mid-2018 both myself and my husband were semi-retired. I work 15 hours a week, he works 20. 

We didn’t have to choose just one goal – we did them all. Of course, we’re now working towards new goals but at the same time we still have lots of time for fun, hobbies and adventures (although I’m typing this in the middle of the global pandemic so for the time being we’re somewhat limited!)

My Approach

The courses I teach show the exact methods I used then, and still use now, to get my life in order and create abundance.

They have been refined over the years but the essence remains. They are simple, easy to follow and you’ll start seeing, and living, the changes straight away. 

It doesn’t matter what your starting point is! You don’t need any special skills or to be a certain type of person. It doesn’t matter who you are, how much you want your life to change or how far away your dream life seems. Let me teach you how to craft your dream life.
