i-need-your-help

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.

I am in the process of planning my content for the rest of 2016 and I’ve hit a mental block.

I’ve been posting content daily for a little more than a year now and think that maybe it’s time for a little overhaul.

As I was trying to figure all this out, I realised something.

I NEED HELP!!
Specifically, I’d LOVE your help

What I would love your help with is . . .
• Any burning business related questions you want to ask
• Any particular topics you want to hear me talk more about here on this page
• Would you like or prefer me to share business related information via short video messages?
• What would you like popping into your inbox from me every week? Would you like me to do a weekly/monthly newsletter? If so, what topics would you like me to cover that would inspire and empower you and help you build a thriving business?
• If you would like to receive a weekly/monthly newsletter from me, please provide me with your e-mail address for my mailing list.

If you could spare a minute or so just to give me some feedback I would appreciate it so much. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Would you prefer a short video more than reading posts here? Do you prefer Podcasts to video? Do you want a newsletter? If yes, how often? Weekly or monthly? What topics would you like covered?

Let me know anything and everything that will help inspire me to create content that you will love.

I look forward to receiving your feedback in the comments box below.

Have a lovely week.

Gender based Violence – WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN YOU NEED HELP?

Hotline

COUNSELLING (INDIVIDUAL / SUPPORT GROUP)
This is an extremely important part of empowerment and allows you, as a woman to explore your feelings, options and impending sense of loss of the relationship.

SHELTERS OR SAFE HOUSES
Gives access to counseling and space to decide the next steps

PROTECTION ORDERS
Apply for a Protection Order and lay criminal charges at the same time if necessary. Protection Orders are available to anyone in a Domestic Relationship.

What is a Domestic Relationship?
• You are or were married to each other, whether you live together or not
• You are same-sex partners, whether you live together or not
• Were or are engaged, dating, or in a customary relationship, or in any relationship you or the other person believes to be romantic
• Have been in a sexual relationship, even for a short time
• Are the parents of a child
• Share or recently shared the same house or residence

By asking for a Protection Order you are not laying a criminal charge, and you do not need to lay a criminal charge to get a Protection Order. However, if you are the victim of a type of domestic abuse that is also a crime, you can choose to apply for a Protection Order, or lay a criminal charge, or both.

Acts of abuse which are also crimes include: common assault, assault with the intention of doing grievous bodily harm, indecent assault, rape, incest, attempted murder, malicious damage to property, pointing a firearm and the abuse of animals.

DIVORCE
This is a huge step and should not be taken lightly. This option should only be considered when everything else has not worked and the abuse continues.
