Boost Yourself – Ginny Marsh interviews Beckie Sanderson

Boost Yourself: Ginny Marsh interviews Beckie Sanderson about the inspiration behind the Boost Yourself Journal, for businesswomen to write colour and doodle away stress.

Ginny Marsh Interviews Beckie Sanderson
Ginny Marsh Interviews Beckie Sanderson

See the interview in Ginny’s Facebook Group where we talk about the inspiration behind the Boost Yourself Journal and how it can help you to boost yourself, your vision, and values.

Who is the Boost Yourself Journal for? 

A: This journal is for ambitious businesswomen who feel stressed and overwhelmed, who struggle to juggle their business and personal life with their own self-care and wellbeing while developing their business and their brand.

They need the Boost Yourself journal to focus on their personal and business development, to put into action some of the things they’ve already learned about mindset, manifesting, and goal setting. Or to simply get things off their chest when they are stressed out. 

Ginny says ”This journal is perfect not only for brainstorming business stuff, but just getting to know yourself better!” 

What benefits does the Boost Yourself Journal provide? 

It provides so many benefits and it’s packed with tips, resources, and inspiration. It also provides a safe place to practice journaling, mindfulness, gratitude, reflection, and manifestation. You can use it to get things off your chest, record your achievements and keep yourself on track. 

Use it to set goals, plan out your business projects, manifest your dreams, mind map your ideas, doodle, sketch and colour away your stress with the creative illustrations. The mission & purpose and the ideal client exercises will help to ‘Boost Yourself’ and your business!

Ginny “Amazing so it’s, a really good mix of journaling and colouring.” 

Why did you create the Boost Yourself Journal?

The idea for the journal came about when talking with my client Faye Cox, who is a mindset and confidence coach. 

Faye asked me “What happened with that colouring book that you’re meant to be creating? Me: “Oh Yeah, it didn’t happen.” 

I listed various reasons, you know because this and that, I haven’t had the time and I just haven’t got around to it. They were all BS excuses. I realised that once again my imposter syndrome was getting in the way of my creativity. 

Faye said “Well, what’s stopping you? You need to create this book then! 

Me: “Okay. then, I will!” 

I decided “OK I’m gonna do this, colouring book!” because I love pattern illustration design and as a publishing specialist I really should have my own book! But actually, I fairly quickly realised that I literally didn’t have the time to put into creating a coloring book. I had some illustrations and stuff that I could repurpose. So I thought I know I’ll create a journal instead, as that will be much easier. (haha!).

What’s in the Boost Yourself Journal? 

The Journal includes:

  • lined and blank pages, starting with the “Today I…” prompt
  • Illustrations for colouring
  • Little Lady mood tracker
  • Boost Yourself tips from other businesswomen
  • The mission and purpose, and ideal client exercises, which include the questions who, why, what, where, and how. These exercises are all about developing ourselves, our businesses, and our brand.
  • At the back of the journal is a four-page business directory

Ginny Says: “This Journal gives so many different options of getting to know yourself, getting to know your business better, knowing what you’re supposed to be doing with your marketing and stuff. It’s also helping you to de-stress and get more creative! There’s so much in this and then you get a list of suppliers that you can collaborate with as well. It’s brilliant.” 

How does the Boost Yourself Journal help businesswomen to develop their business and brand? 

In business, self-care is so important, it is especially important for those who are feeling stressed and overwhelmed. The journal provides a safe place to explore, reflect and destress. The mission and purpose and ideal client exercises, resources, and tips all provide an endless source of personal and business development.

Doing that core work on your mission and purpose and having that understanding really helps you to translate that information into your brand identity and brand values, even down to your logo, what colours you should be using things like that. It transcends all of those elements and that is why I had to include it in the journal. 

Ginny said “I think that’s the absolute key. Not knowing yourself properly is the thing that holds so many people back and feeling like they should be doing stuff when they don’t know their own values and really what they want and when you do that core work on yourself, then you become more in tune with actually what you want to be doing.“


Who contributed to the Journal? 

Nikki Sawyer wrote the foreword for the journal. Nikki, who I’ve dubbed the Queen of Journaling, is a coach supporting mum’s with anxiety, she encourages women to practice journaling. I’ve found her really inspirational, she’s just wonderful! In the foreword, Nikki share’s her journaling tips and explains the benefits of journaling for self-care and personal development. Nikki also suggested that I include a permission slip in the book, which I did.  

The Boost Yourself Journal is packed with ‘Boost Yourself’ tips, from a diverse mix of international businesswomen who share their expertise on branding, business development, marketing, mindset, confidence, fashion & style, health & wellbeing, healthy eating, meditation, and breathing exercises and much more. So there is something for everybody, that’s what makes it feel really special. 

What are your favourite Boost Yourself Tips from the Journal? 

Gosh, that’s a tough one! They are all so good I couldn’t possibly choose. But I do like Nikki Sawyers Boost Yourself Tip: 

“I highly recommend defogging in a messy head with a beautiful journal. There are many ways to journal, you can journal positivity and shift mindset, you can journal to get things out on paper. Once you actually see it, it jumps into your conscious mind and you can work on moving forward and clearing the blocks. Journaling is also a huge element of self-care time.  Self-care time is key to moving forward and positivity.” 

You shared some brilliant ones too Ginny for Gorgeous You Coaching & Gorgeous You Photography:

“Write down 20 Things you like about yourself, your appearance. Your abilities, your personality, and your character. See if you can increase it to 50 or 100 positive things over time.”

“Try different poses in selfie mode with the self-timer on your phone and see what flattering shapes are for your unique body shape. Confidence comes from getting good at something with practice.”

One of my own tips from Miss Digital Media is:  

“Getting yourself out there is so important to build your reputation, raise your brand awareness and boost your visibility. Creating connections with potential customers and clients is an essential part of running your business. Whether it be online or offline networking and growing your tribe is so important. It’s not all about sales either. As meeting like-minded, passionate entrepreneurs, inspiring it is so inspiring.”
