Who is Helen Barton?
Hi, I’m Helen Barton – Personal Fitness Trainer turned Digital Entrepreneur.
Back in 2016 I discovered an amazing digital online education community and began to learn the necessary skills so that I could start my own online business.
It was my dream to become my own boss, being able to work where, when and how I felt like it and I’m now able to work from home, yet have the option to travel laptop in hand…
In simple terms this means that I run a business on the internet and use automated systems to get my message in front of people who may be looking for a solution to their present lifestyle questions.
I am also an affiliate marketer, which means that I recommend educational products and services to others, who I believe will find value in those products and services and then I receive a commission for doing so.
This process is largely automated, so once set up, my business runs whether I’m working on it or not.
My vision is to help others to create lives of far more time and financial freedom and I do this by helping people gain access to the exact same mentors that I have and learn directly from my own experience so far.
I help others to break out of the traditional way of life and have a life that is far more meaningful.
If you want to know more about me then check out my story below!
I was born in England in 1958 and lived my first 24 years on our 2,000 acre family agricultural farm in a tiny village called Saundby, in Nottinghamshire (one blink and you’d driven through it!).
Growing up with a deep love for all animals I dreamed of working with horses.
Following the usual educational system, at 10 years old I was packed off to “Hunmanby Hall” an all girls’ boarding school, following my four elder sister’s’ footsteps, for a “decent education”.
Deaf to my pleas of help and having no idea myself career wise, my busy parents told me to “do whatever you like Helen”.
So, at the wise old age of 15 on the advice of my sister Clare I ended up taking secretarial studies along with my ‘A’ Level exams “to fall back on”.
When I eventually stepped out into the adult world, I chose a couple of years in the usual “safe income posts” to gain experience, then I took a secretarial job in a local Lawyer’s office “Bell, Wilkinson & Dawson” in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
A couple of years later, I upgraded to be private secretary to the boss of the West Burton Electricity Generating Plant in Nottinghamshire.
Next, I moved house for the first time in my life when I went to live with my newly divorced Mother and became a “sportaholic”.
I sometimes changed my clothes as many as 5 times a day, as I started with a morning run around the country lanes, rushed off to work in my smart secretarial attire, jodhpurs on for a lunch time ride on my horse, then back to the office again.
Only to pop to the local sports centre later and play squash, followed by a swim in the evening. I feel exhausted only reading this now, never mind so much running around!
Then, one day I just knew it was time to use my flexible career choice to travel the world, as I was finding it difficult to choose between a sunshine holiday, or a more sporty winter skiing trip when my yearly two week holidays were due!
I handed in my notice and booked a flight to sunny Malaga, intending to learn Spanish then move on, but…
All plans flew away with the wind, as I met the love of my life!
Next… from telephone operator to personal secretary in another Lawyers’ office, as I got to grips with the language.
I hadn’t yet found my work passion, but one day my husband bought me Jane Fonda’s famous “Workout Challenge” video tape and I was hooked!
My work companions joined me during our lunch breaks in my flat for high impact aerobics on the marble floor in front of the TV screen.
Deciding that it was time for a career change I rushed off to Pineapple Dance Studios in London to qualify as an aerobics instructor. Upon my return, we built from scratch, then finally opened “Studio 1” The Fitness Centre in Spain in 1987.
Watch out guys Helen’s in town!
My previously scheduled daily routine turned into an all day/every day work regime, but it was absolutely worth every moment as I owned my own business!
We sold the gym three years later as my husband’s work took us away from the Costa del Sol, but gained my Personal Trainer certification to continue as a private fitness coach, constantly travelling to “the States” to attend more training courses and seminars.
During this time I was invited to join the Reebok team and taught many weekend seminars throughout Spain and the Islands.
My mission statement was:-
“To help people learn how to keep fit, healthy and be able to live life to the full!
I lived my first 24 years in England, then 9 years in Fuengirola, Southern Spain, spent 2 years in Central London, 6 years in the beautiful city of Barcelona, back to Chic Marbella for 7 years and then we built a lovely finca in Alhaurín el Grande, in the beautiful Spanish Countryside!
It was a dream to live there for the next 11 years, especially as it was perfect for our dogs and horses 🙂
Unfortunately, due to the economic climate, we needed to downsize in 2015 and we’re now living in Mijas nearer to the coast again.
I did actually see different aspects of Spain though, albeit not travel the World!
To sum this all up with relation to this Website:-
I’m now in my early 60’s, having started with the typical life of 9-5 jobs with a steady wage, followed by self employment with extreme hard work and a fluctuating income.
In March 2016 I began thinking about an alternative way to live as we were wondering what on earth was going to happen financially during our retirement years, then one Sunday evening I spotted an advert on my Facebook Profile page.
I willingly exchanged my name and e-mail address for seven educational videos, which introduced me to my new lifestyle and have never looked back!
I’ve found what I was looking for…. how to re-skill in order to create my own online business model from scratch and so be part of this new digital age!
There’s a new passion in my life – I’m alive again!
Since March 2016 I’ve attended various SFM Business Community Momentum Days, already both a “Silver” and “Platinum” seminar in London and I’ve just returned from my third Momentum Day and in 2017 an amazing “Gold” meeting in Phoenix Arizona!! I continue attending inspiring meetings each year, actually travelling to Bali now in November 2018 for a “Black” Master Mind event. Each time I return home I just can’t wait to put everything I have learnt into action!
