“Andrew was doing it when most people were just thinking about talking about it.” Max Comfort, Author Portfolio People

Andrew says:

“You don’t realise you’re a pioneer until the rest of the world catches up with you! Suddenly what you’ve been doing for years becomes “the latest thing”. This has kept happening to me. I’ve been a Business & Life Coach since 1983, having gone self-employed in 1979 long before it became fashionable. In those 28 years I’ve supported almost 10,000 people as they too made their Life Shifts – bringing balance back into their lives, embracing a more holistic, person-centred perspective on life, and having a load more fun!

“In my time, I have been that person who stood out against the prevailing but flawed culture. Amongst the ideas I pioneered have been Life Balance, Portfolio Careers, Green/Holistic/Social Enterprise, on-going Mentoring combined with Coaching & Counselling, Start-Up & Post-Launch Growth Programmes … and the outrageous idea that work should be more fun than anything else you can think of!

“This is all summed up in the 3 words ‘Put Joy First‘, which is where Rediscover The Real You (Life Shift Book 1) starts. Notice what makes you miserable and do less of it. Notice what brings you joy and do more of that. Because Joy is the road to Abundance – that terrific feeling money cannot buy.

“I am passionate about people fulfilling their potential, overcoming resistance and sailing through obstacles. I do it for myself and I am dedicated to supporting others like you to do it too. It’s my life’s work.

“What I have learnt is that, especially when you start LifeShifting, it’s not business/career problems that get in your way, it’s personal issues thinly disguised. So Rediscover The Real You (Life Shift Book 1) gets you to focus on your personal life purpose - how you intend to be. Then Take The Brakes Off (Life Shift Book 2) explains the personal pitfalls we fall into at each phase of our lives. Recognising how you get in your own way is at least half the battle; you don’t even have to make any very dramatic changes! Just ease back on the accelerator and ‘take the **** brakes off’!  It will transform your work life balance.

Life Shift Books 3 & 4 cover all the enterprise development issues you will face from this same person-centred perspective. They draw together the 30 workshops I ran from 1983 to 1997, and are equally relevant to career development – what is your career if it’s not an enterprise? It’s your business what you do with the rest of your life! Life Shift Workbook (Life Shift Book 4) formats your new career/enterprise plan.

“In 1992 Piatkus published Creating Abundance for me; again this was an idea I promoted first, which other writers subsequently discovered. You’ll find this ‘classic’ now downable as Creating Abundance (Life Shift Book 5).

“My editor wanted me to write about me in this section, but it’s just not my style. I want you to be impressed with you, not me. But just in case you need a little more convincing that these Life Shift Books are the most thorough, comprehensive material on the subject of changing your life for the better, here’s the CV:

  • SFEDI accredited and award-winning Business Advisor (the highest qualification there is)
  • Fellow The Royal Society of Arts (FRSA)
  • Fellow of the Institute of Consultancy (FIC)
  • Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (FCIM)
  • Chartered Marketer
  • Masters degree from Oxford University
  • Coaching AND Counselling Diplomas (beware coaches who don’t counsel)
  • 30 years self-employed (beware ‘experts’ and academics who haven’t lived it)

“Andrew offers a different way of looking at life and enables positive things to happen.” Diana Cripps

“The Breakthrough Centre has been listed as of special merit in the tradition of human-scale development conceived by Fritz Schumacher. Your work is something to celebrate.” Ed Mayo, New Economics Foundation

Enough about me. Why don’t we get your Life Shift started?

Rediscover The Real You (Life Shift Book 1)

book1Life begins with Vision – a clear and inspiring idea of who you are and what you might become. Vision reflects your personal values and priorities. It explains your ‘why’, your new life purpose.

In a few short pages, Rediscover The Real You structures your search for a fulfilling new Life Purpose that will power your life.

It is also the start of the whole process of restoring your Work Life Balance, underpinned every step of the way by the LifeShift series of books.

Over the last 28 years, Author Andrew Ferguson has already supported thousands of people to ‘LifeShift’. Most of them have either adopted self-employment or a self-managing career.

Take The Brakes Off (Life Shift Book 2)

book2

Thousands of people set out to turn their dreams into reality, but get stuck on the implementation. Take The Brakes Off (Life Shift Book 2), originally published as ‘Life Shift: Doing The Dream’, breaks through the impasse. Realising your dreams takes more than wishful thinking or naked ambition.

At each phase of life there are pitfalls, distractions and attachments to overcome. Is your life working for you? Does your work enhance your life, or get in the way? How’s your “Work life Balance”? When you look at your life, do the obstacles seem insuperable? Are you yet “doing your dream”?

Take The Brakes Off (Life Shift Book 2) is the definitive guide to taking back your life. Forget the ratrace. Drop everybody else’s agenda for you and define success for yourself. Develop a healthier balance between work and the rest of life.

Only 5% of the workforce ‘win’ the ratrace game, and many have little joy of it. Of the other 95%, most struggle and compromise to attain the heights, but don’t even reap the financial rewards, let alone fulfilment. There is massive dissatisfaction in the workplace. Conventional success can’t deliver on its promise. But there is another way, and it’s called Life Shift.

The Life Shift approach has been distilled from Andrew Ferguson’s training and counselling work with nearly 10,000 career-shifters over 25 years. Most of these have as a result created a self-managed or self-employed career.

Now you too can live the life you want – a life of quality. You can create, evolve and live your dream!

Life Shift shows you how to go about it, where to start, how to unpick what you’ve got and create what you want.

“Life Shift is WONDERFUL – a brilliant beacon of hope. All the people I have shown it to are equally enthusiastic and grateful.” Annie Lloyd

“A wonderful book – sheer inspiration. Boy, did things shift!” Elaine Hodgson

“Life Shift is the most complete and up to date version of the thinking pioneered at Breakthrough. Whatever has been happening for you recently, this book has insight that will help explain the process and transform your work life balance. I’m sure you will enjoy it.” Andrew Ferguson

Your Life Shift Manual (Life Shift Book 3) – How To Business Plan Guide

book3

Tried and tested by thousands of ‘LifeShifters’, Your Life Shift Manual (Life Shift Book 3) is a breath of fresh air. It is the only small business book to integrate personal fulfilment comprehensively with the practicalities of setting up a business and turning skills into money.

When life matters more than lifestyle, and work is a context for personal evolution not a distraction from it … the practicalities still have to be handled!

Thousands of people have ideals, dreams or “creative visualisations”, but get stuck on the implementation. Your Life Shift Manual (Life Shift Book 3) breaks through the impasse.

The key to success, once you are clear what you really want deep down, is to develop a strategy for achieving a healthy balance of work and life. Your Life Shift Manual (Life Shift Book 3) covers all this, but without getting ponderous or lost in tedious detail.

Andrew Ferguson is one of the pioneers of Coaching, having set up the first service in 1985. The LifeShift approach has been distilled from his training and counselling work with nearly 10,000 career-shifters. Most of these have as a result created a self-managed or self-employed career.

Now you too can live the life you want. You can set off on the journey of personal discovery that is self-employment. Your Life Shift Manual (Life Shift Book 3) gives you the How To of Business Plans. Andrew Ferguson has condensed what was a 30 day £1500 Business Training down to 150 pages of simple, essential reading.

“Andrew Ferguson’s excellent and clear development of the ‘Seven Levels’ is a devastatingly simple, yet effective model for grounding vision into successful action.” Max Comfort, Author Portfolio People

Creating Abundance (Life Shift Book 5)

book5

Creating Abundance questions the conventional assumptions about life purpose, money and what it is for. Author Andrew Ferguson challenges the addictive hold money has over Western society and offers instead a new empowering relationship – the antidote to the ratrace. This was the original book on (Work) Life Balance, first published by Piatkus in 1992, and now republished online.

Creating Abundance offers a new, more spiritually aware approach and provides practical step-by-step action plans to help you change your values, beliefs and priorities.  This is what will allow Abundance and Purpose into your life.

Creating Abundance will help you feel good about yourself, your work and your attitude to money. It will change the way you think and encourage you on your journey to wholeness and personal success. Money is one of the most stubborn interferences we have to defeat in creating fulfilling lives and realising our Life Purpose.

“Life Shift gives me new ideas and support whenever I open it. A most enjoyable and inspiring book.” Rosemary: Event Coordinator

“Andrew’s almost single-handed quest for the actual – as opposed to theoretical – combining of spirit and business.” Max Comfort, Author Portfolio People
