    Bounce - Living today, protecting tomorrow
    When I met Ashley, the CEO of the insurance company Bounce (https://bouncelife.co.uk/), and Rachel Brookes, the Network Development Manager, it was clear from the start that Bounce and Mpower share similar values around empowering others (particularly mothers) and creating opportunities to flexibly combine earning a great living with motherhood.
    Bounce is all about providing people with the right insurance products to ensure they, their families and their business are protected and can bounce back from unforeseen setbacks and challenges. Receiving the right knowledge and support and having peace of mind when it comes to our home, family and business is also something I see as invaluable.
    Bounce is also hugely passionate about using its business to provide work from home opportunities for mums who want to fit work in around their kids, empowering them to make a difference to the lives of others with their services but also enabling them to transform their own lives through building up additional income through their successful referral network.

    How I ended a lifetime of body confidence issues with Gem Kennedy

    What we cover Put on diets at the age of 10  
    Grew up feeling that her worth was based on her body image
    During a practice coaching session she realised she was not alone
    How learning to feel comfortable in her own body allowed her to come out as queer and change the way she saw things
    How Gem realised that she had wasted so much energy worrying about body image and how she learnt to use that negative enery to make change

    Mentionned in the episode Making waves - self empowerment for social change https://www.facebook.com/pg/thegemkennedy/groups/ (https://www.facebook.com/pg/thegemkennedy/groups/)
    More about Gem Gem Kennedy is a transformational coach, EFT & Matrix Reimprinting practitioner, activist and founder of Queers & Co. Her work focuses around the themes of self-empowerment, body liberation and activism. Since qualifying with Animas in 2018, Gem has been supporting LGBTQ+ folks and allies to reclaim their personal power and take up space so that they can sustain their efforts to effect social change and navigate the often inevitable burnout that comes with doing this work. What started out as research project to inform her work as a coach, quickly became Queers & Co., a social justice-focused podcast, zine and community of kickass humans who are at the forefront of change-making, working in areas like fat activism, LGBTQ+ rights, anti-racism, children's rights and more. Using the same process as in her 1:1 work, Gem has recently launched her course, Making Waves: Self-Empowerment for Social Change, which helps people get to know themselves better, get clear on their vision and build a customised toolkit to support them in bringing about social change.

    How Breast Cancer battle was the making of my business with Gemma Cockrell

    Realising what was in the products we buy
    Using her science backgroud to create her own products
    Launching her first Business
    Deciding to take the business to the next level by rebranding
    Remaining postive throught her treatments and surgerys
    The key to staying positive through difficult circumstances
     
    More about Gemma
    PUREMESS came about after a second breast cancer diagnosis in 2015. I have always had a healthy approach to life, eating well and exercising, and thought I used what I considered to be natural products. However, with a busy lifestyle and a family to look after I had never really taken the time to research what was actually in those products. Using my science background I decided to start formulating and making my own products, using only the finest natural ingredients I could find. And that's how it all started!
