Helping Christian entrepreneurs build resilience so they can feel better and actually be as happy as they think they should be.
"Grace. Compassion. Drive, and a touch of brilliant humor. El takes the everyday and brings light to the conversation with a real life perspective that's missing for many leaders today."
- Cindi Schultz, Foothold Services
Hiya, I'm El Edwards! Mental health champion, positive psychology geek and founder of the Faith And Business Playground.
I'm here to talk openly about mental health, the "dark side" of entrepreneurism, with tools, support and resources to help build your resilience or, as I like to call it, your bounce back.
How? By bringing together like-minded Jesus geeks to create a community focussed on love, laughter & real life conversation.
Why? To help you feel less alone!
As well as membership of my free Facebook community, you'll get twice weekly emails from me with behind the scenes chit-chat and inspiration to help make your journey through this one precious life more delightful.
(And nope, when you join me, you won't find yourself stuffed into a marketing funnel. Quite the contrary ... I'm told my twice weekly emails are like a breath of fresh air!)
You in? Great! Come and join the free Faith And Business Playground community on Facebook. Click here to get started!
Or to find out more about my inspiration for this mission, (because who wants to sign up for stuff from some random person on the internet - even if she does seem super friendly?!?) click here.
You’re itching for a faith that makes a difference in this world, but all too much of the time, life simply gets you down.
Maybe you get to the end of the day and look back, only to realise that it was exactly the same as the day before, and the day before that, and the day before that.
Weeks slip into months, and before you can say “tinsel” it’s Christmas again and yet another year is over.
What if it didn’t have to be like that? What if life could be like a Jesus party, with every single day feeling delightful?
“Uh oh El, did you swallow a book about the prosperity gospel and now you’re going to start telling me my life can be brilliant, but only if I have enough faith?!?”
Fear not my love, that’s not my bag at all. The prosperity gospel is downright dangerous and isn’t based on any reality I know.
Here’s what I do know:
In 2010, I started blogging in a bid to raise the profile of UK charity Give A Brick and, in the process, I fell into a world of personal development and big dreaming. Thanks to YouTube I learned human needs psychology from Tony Robbins, how to be successful with Darren Hardy and how to get stuff done via (lots and lots of!) trial and error.
I read Get Rich Lucky Bitch and learned how to better look after my money thanks to Denise Duffield Thomas. I started setting goals and actually realising big dreams (like the time I published my first novel) The more I read and experimented, the more I realised that this game we call life is won or lost according to what goes on between our ears.
