Hello and Welcome! Thanks for stopping by...
For those of you who are new to BossingIt! I thought I’d introduce myself properly.
So I’m Fran. 38 years old. Wife. Mum to 3 young boys. Previous career woman slash business owner. Gym addict. Healthy Living advocate. Vegan. Bookworm. Says fuck and bell-end a lot. Lives in Leeds, UK.
After 15 years in the corporate world I closed the door on a successful IT recruitment business in order to pursue my passion of writing - welcome BossingIt! Despite the flexibility of working for myself, I no longer loved the work I was doing, in fact it was causing me a lot of stress and misery and I ached to do something that made my soul sing. I no longer wanted to ‘get through’ the week, doing a job just to pay the bills - I longed to feel joy and experience true fulfilment. I wanted to jump out of bed on a morning excited about the day ahead, to go to bed with satisfaction every night, to follow my life long dream.
I believe life is for enjoying, not enduring. I believe in thriving not just surviving. And I wasn’t prepared to wait for retirement to do all the things I wanted to do - life is happening, now, and we don’t know how long we’ve got. So I took a big leap of faith, closed the door on my recruitment business and set up my blog.
BossingIt! aims to inspire busy women to take control of their lives and bump themselves further up the priority list - to remember who they are at their core; to start doing more of the things they truly love; and ultimately (and this is the good bit) to stop doing shit they hate! Via the blog, I aim to demonstrate first hand that life is there for the taking and that YOU are in control of it.
I want to encourage women to realise their potential, so they can grab life by the big hairy balls and create the life they truly want, so they can feel joy and gratitude each and every day, and ultimately be the very best version of themselves.
I want to share the belief that if someone is not 100% happy with any aspect of their life, be it work, relationships, parenting, health & fitness, or life in general, it’s never too late to change things or even start anew completely.
My motto - Every day is a new opportunity to start over, to be who you want to be, and YOU get to write and rewrite your story! You CAN create the life you truly want and truly deserve!
I try my best to keep it real - I’m quite happy to admit that sometimes I’m bossing it, sometimes I’m totally fucking winging it, and I’ll have a laugh at my own expense and share my cringeworthy moments. We’re only human, and as long as we’re doing our best, being honest and kind, what more can people ask for?
I really hope you enjoy the content I share, and I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Much love, Fran xxx
