You and I share the same vision
You and I share the same vision for a happier and more prosperous world for all. For a society connected to their hearts and to their higher purpose. Living their dreams, creating change and shining their light of possibility for others.
As a Vision & Mission Mentor I am here to support your biggest changemaker dreams and ambitions - Helping you to clarify your vision, align your mission and make change happen.
As a social entrepreneur and business owner, I understand the pain and struggle that comes with holding a vision & dream in one hand and stress and confusion in the other and all the other internal and external challenges that slow down momentum and our impact.
After 14+ years of doing marketing for others, building brands and working with clients through my award-winning marketing agency and later through consultancy, I eventually reached my own breakthrough moment in 2019 when looking at my bookshelf.
Gradually, the traditional marketing books were replaced with books on personal growth, self-study, marketing for good, spirituality, conscious & beautiful business and the purpose-economy.
I recognised a deep longing to bring all parts of myself and my highest joy into my work but I felt lost in the question of "How?". Through looking inwards, connecting to my curiosity and what was possible, I set myself a challenge to deliver 60 breakthrough sessions - by donation - in 60 days.
A few years later, I have delivered over 150+ breakthrough & mentoring sessions working with best-selling authors, International speakers, filmmakers, award-winning social entrepreneurs, academics, social investors, public figures and movement builders. I've founded my own not for profit CIC, mentored and facilitated workshops for the UK's leading social enterprise schools and accelerators and was proud to be part of the 2020 judging team for the UK Social Entrepreneur Index.
My personal story is one of adversity, grief, depression, burnout and loss of identity. It's these experiences that make me a fierce and loving supporter for any changemaker that has a vision and a heart for helping humanity flourish and making our world better.
Louise has listened in a way that no other coach has, not just to the vision I have for our social enterprise work but what the drivers were behind this, professionally and personally. Over the last 9 months, Louise has supported my team and I, to re-evaluate our vision and mission helping us build new and more aligned projects. I couldn't recommend Louise highly enough as a coach and a skilled and supportive mentor

I believe that when we live in alignment with these philosophies we can create more possibility for ourselves and our work and even more transformation and impact.
Change your questions, change your life
The questions we ask ourselves can keep us stuck or they can open up new insight and awareness. We can choose to only ask questions which lead us to opportunity, possibility and success
Aligning our work with our personal growth
Our truest life’s work is a reflection of our deepest purpose and highest calling. When we connect to this place of purpose our internal world reflects the external, we grow, the people around us grow and we make more impact
Listening to our heart & body intelligence
Learning to surrender to what our bodies are wanting to tell us, deep listening to what is and what wants to emerge. Bringing awareness to the whispers and shouts of our heart connects us to a greater presence and insight to drive any strategy forward
Thoughtful marketing & marketing for good
Do the right thing and use marketing for good. Marketing is a powerful tool as a force for generosity and change. It should enhance lives and bring more joy and connection
Slowing down to speed up & clarity in stillness
Nothing good ever comes from a place of control, overwhelm and stress. Your greatest service comes from putting yourself first and remembering you’re not a to-do list. Slowing down creates space for deeper insights to find voice and life
Opportunity & possibility to be found in challenge
There is always opportunity to be found in challenge when we view life’s challenges as fuel for creative service and when we ask better questions framed to explore what’s possible. Where there’s a will, there’s always a way
Interviews, podcasts and stages where I’ve shared my story, experience and vision
“Create a brand that attracts a tribe and makes an impact - lots of people have the mistaken belief that branding is about the name of your company and your logo.
But it's much bigger and much more important than that…”
“Louise Graham on listening, self-discovery and human transformation. We chat about how important it is to listen to our customers rather than just hear what they say, and how we can bring moments of thoughtfulness and kindness into marketing…”
With first hand knowledge and experience, in this episode Louise talks about her most difficult period in life, and how that proved to be a catalyst for change. Transforming her life and mindset, Louise now mentors others and supports change makers to strive for their highest potential.
What I'm reading & watching
