Back to themes


This month the dreamer theme returns to the Work/Shop and it’s all about the power of dreaming and visualisation.

Dreaming has a bad rap – daydreaming is implied negatively, having your head in your clouds and dreaming big is pegged as unrealistic and I bet some of you rolled your eyes when you started reading this post and thought it was all a bit twee and fluffy…!!

Well, we’re here to change your perception of dreaming because it really is one of the most powerful tools in the business.  If you ask any successful entrepreneur how their journey began, I guarantee you, they’ll have numerous stories of people who didn’t believe in their idea from day one – whether it was their parents, bank manager or the colleagues they eventually left behind when their idea took off!

Sahar Hashemi was turned down by 39 bank managers before one said yes, and the Coffee Republic was born. I decided to build a tech/retail company having never worked in either in my life and Notonthehighstreet will turn 14 this year, helping over 5000 Partners do what they love and make a living from it.

I’ll be sharing some tips on how to dream and visualise and turn this into action throughout the month, but for now, I hope this encourages you to dare to dream big – because that’s where the magic begins- believe me.
