Leicester, Leicestershire, United Kingdom, 2011/12/06 - Women all over the globe have been suffering in silence, stuck in a rut, desperate to be heard by partners, husbands, children, bosses and the High St. Now they have the chance to take control of their lives with the help of a new website.
The name "Venus Cow" signifies the youthful fresh desirable girl inside all of us bursting to get out.
VenusCow.com is a free common sense, brutal truth, life coaching course for anyone who is ready to take back control, make positive changes and build back confidence by setting goals and tracking progress in a personal and private on-line journal.
Developed by entrepreneur, TV and radio lifestyle expert and lifecoach, Shirley Yanez from Leicester,
“I wanted to find a way to share my insight, knowledge and experience for free with women everywhere and provide them with the tools they need to be fabulous from the inside out without it costing anything but their time.” says Shirley, who at 55 is now in the best physical and mental shape of her life thanks to her own lifestyle plan. Shirley practises what she preaches and despite her success maintains her budget lifestyle for real.
Shirley says “Changing the way you look at things, i.e. Why you eat too much, drink too much, shop too much, helps you get to know the invisible you, the person you no longer recognise and is the key to successfully reaching your goals.”
Shirley designed the program whilst working with individuals, one to one, which requires her clients to maintain a physical journal as part of her course.
"Finding a way to translate this and allow my site visitors to maintain a journal online was tricky on a budget." says Shirley. “The quotes I got to build what I had in mind, were around £35,000.”
Undaunted, she approached Bob John, professor of Computational Intelligence and acting Vice Chancellor at De Montfort University, Leicester in September, 2011 with her idea to enhance her online life coaching course making it a more effective tool for visitors needing help. The university has a commitment to enhance and add value to the community as a whole and senior staff saw her vision and agreed to help. The tool they used, Joomla, a robust and more importantly free CMS (content management system) system that is available for anyone to download.
"The great thing about the Venus Cow website is, by thinking outside the box, engaging the skills and expertise of the community, harnessing the wonderful technology available for free and all working together for a greater purpose we have produced something useful for everyone, without money. " says Shirley.
Shirley’s personal mantra is to never allow a lack of money to stop her achieving her goal.
