"I wish I had done it years ago
After 20 years I have just had my best month in business filling my online bookings for courses. Ursula's encouragement to get visible and be consistent with my marketing it is really paying off and translating into £££!!
A year ago I never thought I would be in the position of having a solid brand, and getting noticed on national and international platforms, and have magazine articles featuring me!
I feel much happier in myself and so I wouldn't hesitate in telling people to do Drive and Thrive"
Helen Hallows The NuRtured Artist
"Drive and Thrive shook me to the Core!
Drive & Thrive was about changing my mindset. It was about building my confidence. The personal journey I went through doing Drive & Thrive...well, I mean...I cried. It shook me to the core!"
Laura Stevens Natter marketing and communications
Watch these women TALK about their amazing drive and thrive experiences:
You have more money and more time. You're pivoting your business around to what you’ve secretly been wanting to do all along. You’re working solely with your ideal clients, only doing the work you truly love, being paid well and reconnecting with why you do this all over again. No more being worried about what to say on your lives, social media posts, or in your newsletters because you're confidently and consistently showing up and telling the world that you exist.
You've got something special, something unique.
You're seeing your time as precious and you're taking time for you. You're going for walks, taking baths, booking in a massage, having lunch dates, reading your favorite book, or watching a film in the middle of the week, without feeling guilty!
You're choosing to say YES to YOU and the things YOU CHOOSE. Those Big Bold Brave moves are now in sight, because you're finally embracing the Real You. Now.
I Would Describe Drive and Thrive as a Journey...
...on a practical level and emotionally too, because Ursula really gets lots out of us!
She really digs deep to help you get to where you want to take your business. She really examines every part, every aspect of your business, and gives you clarity about where your passion comes from and why you are doing it.
She'll question how you want your business to look visually and what clients you want to work with.
She even made me change my pricing- that alone is priceless!

I've Been Able to Take a Giant Leap Forward!
I've always struggled with shouting about what I do. I wasn't very good at doing the kind of marketing side of things. That fear of marketing yourself dissipates when you recognise that you're solving a problem for somebody else.
And when you get clear on that, it's much easier to show up and be in your own business.
One of the biggest wins for me was my branding, I know what font I'm using, I know what I need in the photos I use. I now have the freedom to go and create and design things for myself. Everything now just looks so much more professional than it did before.
Drive and Thrive has been exceptionally helpful for me with all of this!

Being part of Drive & Thrive has Given Me the Confidence to be Authentic
Ursula is a very approachable, super positive leader and she's guided and coaxed me to venture into new territory, be more visible on social media and step out of my comfort zone.
Learning how to engage and connect with potential clients and convert them into followers has lead to an increase in both sales and the size of my team. Being part of the Drive & Thrive programme has given me the confidence to be authentic at all times.

Ursula Completely Understood Me And My Business
She really makes you think about what it is that you want your business to do, what you want your business to achieve and how you want to achieve it.

Do you get lost..?
Are you searching through hundreds of tutorials on YouTube featuring random tech guys spouting tech-speak you've never heard of to try and solve an annoying tech question?
Or listening to drill sergeant coaches shouting at you to 'just do this if you want to have your first 5 figure month!'
Have you signed up for yet another freebie guide or dipped your toe into one more free course or Facebook group?
There are so many people giving away free advice that you’re not sure who to listen to anymore. You know you can't be in all places at once and you're still no further down the road.
For 12 weeks we'll be on this journey together, covering everything from your vision and your visuals, to your personal story, and your money mindset. I'll get you showing up, serving more, finally charging your worth, and moving towards the things you hold in your heart. Because if I can do it then so can you.
I'll guide you down the right road because I've been there too. Don't worry...
...I know the way!
"Ursula has the Knack of Knowing What is Needed and When."
I just love working with Ursula. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, encouraging, understanding and gentle: all things we need at different times and in different proportions.
Ursula has the knack of knowing what is needed and when and all this is enhanced by her design, photographic and visual skills.
She really cares and wants to help and support her clients. Ursula has helped me to be more visible in a way that was comfortable and at my own pace.
Karen Chappell stress management and pain specialist
Let's Make It Happen…
In just 12 weeks you’ll be clearer than ever on what you want and why you want it.
You'll gain inspirational and practical ideas on how to be honest with yourself, what you want to achieve in this next stage of your life and how to be more confident and actually make it happen.
You'll see you are not alone with some of the fears that are holding you back to get visible and that you can do something about it even though imposter syndrome hangs around like an uninvited guest at a party!
Prepare yourself for a mindset shift so you get clear that being YOU in business is what it's all about. There is no splitting personal and professional when it comes to what you truly love to do, the more you can confidently show up as you, whether that's in heels, trainers, or a tracksuit top the more you build the Know, Like and Trust factor. People need what you do and why you do it, not how you look or how you sound. If you believe in what you do so will your audience too. If you don't tell them they won't know. It's time to Be. YOU. Now.
You don't have to have it all sorted.
You just have to get it started...
If you are thinking of working with Ursula...just do it!
I have found her to be an incredibly innovative, creative, supportive, encouraging, authentic and truly inspirational coach.
The benefits are immense and they're ongoing. I would encourage anybody to do the course!

We broke down walls!"

DRIVE & !
module 1 What drives you?
Understand what gets you out of bed, what your true motivations are to reconnect with what fuels your fire so you can fan those flames!

You are The Full Package!
"It is an investment in time and in yourself. And absolutely, it's worth it.
There's some aspects of the training, which is about going inside yourself. And then there's some aspects of the course that's very practical. It was just so multisensory, that it really went to a different level.
Now I have absorbed all of that, it changes how I take every photograph and set up every zoom meeting and it's helped me understand what a big difference even a tiny change can make, if you take the time to do it. I now have something that feels like a solid foundation and it's opened my heart and my mind to playing so much bigger than I thought would be possible.
I think the journey for all of us on Drive and Thrive has been about really, really connecting with what you truly want to offer, and who you really want to work with"

...no-one is you-er than you!
DRIVE and THRIVE is not a one size fits all approach!
It's not another type your question in the chatbox group scenario. I’m coaching you on the sessions in real-time...
You do get to talk to me, you can turn on your mic and get to ask your question on every live session (if you want to).
To get results you need to be seen and heard (especially if you have struggled to ask for help before). I truly understand and I’ll be giving you lots of input and making suggestions in a kickass with kindness way.
Seeing my clients achieve their goals motivates me every day (even on a bad hair day!!). I'll always turn up, tune in, get you moving and guide you closer to that bigger dream of yours that maybe is hiding just below the surface or perhaps even deeper within...
...it's my mantra!
Hey there, I'm Ursula
I’ve been there too!
I'm an entrepreneur and business woman and a (still recovering) camera shy photographer for over 20 years!
Don’t get me wrong I’ve photographed CEO’s and celebrities, been featured in national papers and publications and I’ve won a few awards in my time. But it still took me quite a while to address my own hang-ups about visibility, money and self-worth (still working on it tbqh). So believe me I’ve been there too!
In lockdown I saw super talented woman out there who were struggling with the confidence to get visible, take control of their story and charge their worth. I decided it was time to help more women like me. Like you.
I can’t wait to help you get your confidence, define your direction and discover who you have been all along. Let’s work together!

Drive +Thrive IS FOR YOU IF......
You no longer want to go it alone.
You know you can achieve great things but you just don't quite know how.
You want to work with someone who’s been there and got the t-shirt.
You'd love an accountability pal who cares as much about your success as you do.
You'd enjoy being part of a community of like-minded women who are driven to create real change in their lives and the lives of others too.
You are ready to show up and serve 100% authentically as you.
You're really ready to get out of your comfort zone, face your fears and make positive change in your life.
"I Really Appreciate Ursula's Creative Eye!"
My new web-site with fab photos, fab videos, fab copy is live! I feel a huge sense of achievement and a feeling of relief.
Thank you for being so positive and determined throughout this coaching process. I have huge appreciation that you care so much about what you do and how you do it.

You have questions I have answers...
Have a question before joining? Here are some frequently asked questions.
Of course, you are! If you’re used to giving to others and putting others' needs first then it’s time to prioritise yours. It is difficult to make anyone happy if you are not happy with yourself- and especially your clients! A small amount of time for you now will pay ten-fold, for you and others too. This is a win-win.
Absolutely you should! Investing in yourself is the best investment you can ever make. You deserve this!
If you have been feeling like you’re not happy in what you’re doing in your business, if there’s something holding you back or you’re not achieving what you thought you would then looking closer into yourself and your business to address those concerns will benefit you in many ways, including improving your own health and your business health too
I can’t guarantee results for you, as they are dependent on your commitment to your being absolutely honest with yourself and to working on your own development. This does include facing up to things which may be uncomfortable for you such as past life events and being on camera. However, my coaching alumni will tell you that if you are willing to face your truths, I will support you and help you to identify and get past these blocks with real benefits in your business and in your life. This course will definitely challenge you but it will also embrace you...and we do try to get some fun in there too!
Most courses will take a particular approach but I like to work on lots of different levels: psychological, logical, emotional, practical and even historical. One thing that is common throughout all of my coaching is that I approach all of it with empathy.
I have 25 years of business experience as an entrepreneur, multiple business owner and multi award winning pro photographer. I realised some time ago that my approach to photography is the same as my approach to coaching which is to try and bring the best out of anybody that I work with and help them to see things in themselves that they perhaps didnt realise were there. It began to dawn on me that I have always been coaching my clients, advising them and encouraging thembefore, during and after our photoshoots and so I realised my move into coaching has been happening for much longer that I realised. I guess I just can't help myself...!
This program is a perfect fit for you, if...
You’re a female solopreneur (sorry fellas!)
You’ve lots of experience but not so much confidence
You’ve ever had Impostor syndrome.
You’re scared of social media and being on camera.
You have no time for yourself or even to do everything you need to do in your business.
You’re run down and losing inspiration
You want to do something new and you don’t know how to pivot
You’re ready to commit, face some difficult truths and break through to a new place in your life and your business
You want to take your talents and make them work for you
You’re looking for quick fix answers
You’re looking to make a fast buck
You’re fine as you are
You’re not ready for change
You’re not willing to be really honest with yourself
This programme is not a perfect fit for you if…
"Ursula has the supernatural ability to see the potential in everything.
You might think you’ve got an idea but Ursula within seconds will make it much much better. That’s Ursula as a coach.
Plus, as a photographer, she goes beyond photography creating imagery that encompasses YOU. You as your brand without compromising your personality.
Highly recommended. Much loved. Anyone who wants to be anything should work with this incredible woman"
