Welcome to The Manifestation Collective. I’m Victoria, your guide to all things manifestation, motivation and mindset. From weekly blog posts, to the Facebook community where I hold weekly chats and monthly goal setting workshops, in person events, free resources, and bespoke 1:1 coaching, The Manifestation Collective is designed to help you get real clarity about what you dream life looks like, and more importantly how to create it. After all, if you can see it, and you can believe it, you can absolutely achieve it.
Let me tell you a little about my path to building this business. A former magazine editor turned soulful business coach, my life changed dramatically when I discovered the power of positive thinking. It sounds simple doesn’t it, but for someone who was so resolute on focusing on the negatives in life, to experience how my thoughts could shift my reality in the best way possible, really was life changing.
After studying the art of manifestation and the power of our minds for four years, undertaking a number of high profile courses – working with the likes of Gabrielle Bernstein and Denise Duffield-Thomas – to develop my knowledge further, my intuition was pulling me to build my own community of like-minded spirit junkies who wanted to put the action into the law of attraction.
In just over two years, I’ve designed a business which I feel fully aligned to, attracting soulmate clients and doing work that makes my heart happy. I’ve sold out events and courses, coached amazing women to launch their own businesses and passion projects, and have learnt to manifest money into my business, closing in on £100k income mark.
But it hasn’t always been this way.
Two years ago I was working as the editor of a big-name menswear magazine for close to a decade. On paper the job sounded amazing. Travel, fashion shows, photoshoots…male models…my face in the front of a magazine. After all, I’d studied journalism at university so this was the end goal, right?
Except, when the sparkle had dulled, I realised just how unfulfilling the job was. Working in the fashion industry, you realise just how surface level it can be. It was stressful, crying in the toilets and trying to ignore that flat feeling of wanting more but not knowing how to take the next step.
I wanted connection. I wanted to help people. I wanted out.
But I was petrified to take the leap. Financially I felt tied because the biggest mindset block I had was I would never be able to top my income. Spoiler alert, I’ve almost doubled it year-on-year.
I was scared of what my friends and family would say. I was scared of making the jump, failing and having to admit I was back looking for another 9-5. I was scared my ideas weren’t good enough and there wasn’t enough room in the market for me.
So, I asked the universe for a sign.
The following day, after a decade at the company, the magazine was closed down and I was made redundant.
Wow. I knew the universe could work quickly, but that had to be a record? So, I spent the next 6 months, in all honesty, jumping from one idea to the other, not really growing my audience, and concerned each month if I was going to make enough money to pay my rent. I kept doing all of the things but didn’t have much to show for it. Which is when I decided to get serious.
I started to pay attention to my business, looking at what was working and what wasn’t. I purposely focused on self-discovery to get clarity over the direction of my business. I got a coach. I decided to cut out the noise of other people and focus on creating powerful, inspiring and educational content of my own. I worked on my mindset blocks and the resistance I was facing. I embraced my quirks and realised they made me who I am. I faced my fears of public speaking and hosted a sell-out event and various webinars. I stopped worrying about what other people thought of me or what the “competition” was doing. I learned a simple formula for creating a successful, but more importantly, aligned business that has impact.
And here we have The Manifestation Collective.
