Hi, I’m Michelle Boyle, aka MummaBelly and this new website/blog is basically where my business and personal life collide.
As a busy Mum of four school-age children, I needed a new space where my business of 12 years, BellyBiz Shapewear, my new business, BellyBiz Health and my latest passionate projects Zesty Girl and "It's About Time" could all co-exist. As a multi passionate person it's taken me years to try and work out how to bring everything together so it makes sense to my different markets but I have had to conclude that it does actually make no logical sense! So I am just giving you MummaBelly which is essentially me and all that I do and how I do it!
A brief background...
Fifteen years ago after a 12-year corporate career, I decided that it was time to let my Entrepreneurial streak run wild and "have a go" to develop the things that I was passionate about. I am a person who sees ideas and possibilities everywhere and I just really love creating solutions to help others.
Many stories to tell later... here is a quick summary of my businesses and how they are now represented here on MummaBelly:
The nutshell version:
BellyBiz Shapewear: Where you can purchase our amazing, unique, made to be seen Tummy Tuckers and our other fabulous shapewear and maternity products.
BellyBiz Health: Tips on using real food for health, weight loss, and life. My aim is to make it super easy for you to add more "real food" into your life so that it is affordable, quick, easy, and yummy.
“It’s About Time”: Your solution to living a life by design with a focus on regaining time to achieve your goals.
MummaBelly Blog: My personal experience in business, health, family and life.
Zesty Girl: How to easily bring back teh zest in your life...and reclaim your joy!
The long version....
BellyBiz Shapewear was developed after the birth of my 3rd child when I wanted a quick solution to control my post-baby wobbly bits and get back into my jeans. Like most women, I wanted to feel more confident about myself. I had tried many types of Shapewear, but the quality was always terrible, plus they were unattractive and made me feel like I was wearing an impractical, uncomfortable, sweaty contraption. Not very suitable when you are a busy Mum.
BellyBiz Health was created a year after my 12-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Vitiligo an autoimmune disease and we were told that nothing could be done medically for her. I am not a great believer in “nothing can be done”, so this diagnosis led me to research and learn everything there was to know about using food to heal the body. At this time, I felt that adopting a 90% “real food” diet for my family could do no harm, so I pushed aside all the conflicting, confusing dietary theories and got started.
Hmmm, easier said than done and what a journey it has been. I spent hours in my kitchen for two years researching, trialing and creating healing foods and real food systems. The results were amazing in both healing my daughter and the general health of my whole family. I was hooked and over the last three years, I have trained to become a certified Health Coach and developed an online programme to share my information to help others....You can read even more about this story here.
Which leads me to my upcoming passion project called...
"It's About Time" This baby is about having a life by design and living your dreams. This has been created for women who feel like their busy, stressful, eight days a week life is overwhelming, and they are in a constant state of reactionary juggling, rather than active living. It is those of us who feel their lives are passing by as a blur and we are not living in the moment.
"It's About Time" is a how-to on achieving all you want.. it's about reducing stress and being present in the moment. It's about regaining back our greatest asset... Time...
This project due to launch in October 2018..
Zesty Girl: Through my work as a Health Coach I have found that so many women are so busy and stressed - that they have lost their zest and are just going through the motions of life. Zesty Girls is quick easy steps to get your zest back and refocus on you and your health and hapiness.
My purpose with MummaBelly is to share experiences and start conversations...
