The title of my next book, ‘Yes You Can’ is a book designed to encourage women to confidently make the transition to business start up following redundancy, long-term unemployment or a new life direction.
When I wrote the first draft of the book it was very much a reflection of my own journey, the things I had to face and deal with, the questions I had to ask myself and get answers to in order to build my confidence and self-belief. With that in mind as I continued to work on it, I knew I had to make the book interactive, offering a balance of encouragement, words of wisdom from other women who decided to start their own business, and plenty of exercises for the reader to begin their own journey.
‘Yes You Can’ is all about claiming your space, realising there is so much more in life for you than you currently believe there is; there is much more that you can achieve. Research says we, as human beings, are functioning on a mere 5% of our potential. If that is the case what difference could you make in your life if you edged it up to 6%, 10%, 15%? Limitless possibilities exist when your confidence and self-belief allow you to see beyond your current circumstances.
So here I am busy finishing up the book and seeking out an aligned publisher. ‘Yes You Can’ will be my first personal development/business book covering the 7 steps used in the Launching Women Into Business programme. With some great classic quotes, my little ‘muse’ to guide you along and a bit of humour it will make for easy reading with a strong message; YES YOU CAN…
I’ll keep you posted on the progress. Until then,
P.S – It’s now 2017 and I am working with an awesome team of women to get the programme up and running. Talk about a long journey! But we are committed to helping more women into business, creating the freedom they crave and the life they desire. I’ll keep you posted x

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
