INVITATION FOR LEADERS
Business and Government leaders in the United States and Europe have noted significant individual and organization performance improvement following their completion of the LifeLift Experience. These results occur because the leaders have access to what we refer to as their “Master Space.” Their mastery comes from accessing their highest and best resource which is their Permanent Presence which exists beyond the temporary constructed ego and all of its limitations. When Permanent Presence is dominant remarkable manifestations begin to flow effortlessly for leaders and their organization.

Foreword to the book Untwisted
I first met Ted at a gathering hosted by mutual friends, Sir Tom and Lady Marion Hunter, at their villa in St. Jean Cap Ferrat in the South of France. As the leadership development and management operations adviser to Tom’s sportswear company, Ted had recently assisted Tom in making the decision to sell his company at a very opportune moment. Tom was also a shareholder of my company, Ultimo lingerie and swimwear brand. Impressed with Ted’s acumen, Tom suggested that Ted advise my then-husband and me through the tough personal and professional growth steps required for us to achieve similar success with Ultimo. That evening we sat with Ted by the Hunters’ pool overlooking the Côte d’Azur and crafted a plan to work together.
Ted became a trusted adviser, supporting my husband and I through a decade-long journey in keeping our company intact. Little did we know how challenging that journey would be, as we dedicated every ounce of our energy and every penny we could muster to maintain our upward momentum. As the pressures continued to build, Ted spent many late nights counseling us, guiding us to face the personal fears, doubts, and painful limiting beliefs that were draining our energy, health, and joy. We’d head to the office together each day, eager to apply our newfound insights and performance-enhancing skills. Unfortunately, after riding this emotional and financial roller coaster for some time, my husband and I split up. We each were carrying too much unprocessed pain for it to have gone any other way. I bought his stake in the company and eventually sold Ultimo.
During the divorce and afterward, I turned to Ted frequently for guidance in examining my own self-limiting beliefs, fears, and hidden pain. Although I had been around Ted’s profound teachings for many years, I realized I hadn’t been applying them deeply enough to my own life to make the changes I knew had become necessary. It wasn’t that I wasn’t capable of making these changes. It was just that, like all of us, I was running negative, limiting, self-talk programs in my head, which threatened my internal peace. For example, I uncovered a subconscious belief that if I were alone and unsuccessful, no one would love me.
I knew I could not create the desired next phase of my life while carrying the dreadful self-doubts I held about myself and my future. Despite all the success I’d had professionally, inside I still felt like the insecure, impoverished fat girl from the working class of Glasgow. Can you believe it? I was a multimillionaire living in a wonderful new home I’d recently decorated, having just sold my company to one of the largest clothing manufacturers in the world. My three children were healthy teenagers and getting on rather well, despite the tough divorce. My social life was overflowing with an amazing global network of celebrities and business leaders. Yet there I was in the middle of it all, feeling absolutely, desperately alone, sure of my ugliness and ultimate demise as a poor, old woman.
That’s when I called Ted and asked him to fly over from the States and take me through his new seminar. Ted came immediately and we began the next phase of our work together. We dug through my painful, long-hidden beliefs about myself to discover the central, defining subconscious thought that was causing me to be stuck in my pain, robbing me of the joy and peace that should have been mine. It turned out that my major underlying assumptions, the basic ideas driving my actions and choices in life, were: I am fat, ugly, and I will end up alone and impoverished. And I deserve this because I am totally unworthy of love.
To see these words on paper, spread out by Ted on a large banner across my kitchen table, was the stimulus I needed to begin letting go of these colossal untruths.
We peeled deeper and deeper through my hidden limitations, until eventually nothing was left but the quintessential truth: I am love. I am generous, and I create beauty and joy in the world. This deep realization washed over me, finally generating the life-altering awakening I’d been thirsting for. Over the next several months, I worked hard to hold on to my actual truth using the tools Ted had shared with me. I came to understand that I deserve to experience love simply by being love. My fear of failure and being alone began to fade bit by bit. It happened organically, seamlessly, as I simply allowed my truth to be evident to myself.
As I maintained the positive emotions of being love and being naturally loveable, amazing things began to occur. I was asked to be the face of British Airways and appeared in their ads wearing swimwear draped in the Union Jack flag. And I must say, when I saw myself in the ad photos, I thought I looked fabulous. I did not see the ugly girl I once thought I was. Then Bentley Motors called and asked me to represent them as well! What an honor—and what fun!
Meanwhile, more men began pursuing me as I practiced learning how to hold my truth. I became steadily wiser about the difference between needing love from someone else and simply being love myself. I learned it is so much better to be love and share it with someone who also knows how to be love than it is to be in a relationship defined only by seeking love from each other. I’d learned from experience that the desperate need to pull love from other humans is not healthy, nor is it sustainable.
While learning to live as love, I became a global speaker, hoping to inspire hundreds of thousands of people around the world. I decided to share what Ted had taught me and invited him to one of my mentoring weekends. Ted agreed to co-facilitate this private, exclusive mentoring session for UK business leaders with me. Each attendee was amazed to “wake up” as endless, creative love. They all began to dissolve their limiting beliefs, which were holding them back from even greater success. We followed up with them after a few months has passed and were thrilled to hear that they had broken through “being stuck” by their untrue beliefs and were experiencing considerable new achievements.
From personal experience, I can offer this indisputable truth: We are all massively powerful, unbelievably impassioned beings fueled by the natural, loving desire to express ourselves creatively, meaningfully, and helpfully in the world. This truth is the core essence of healthy entrepreneurship and business leadership. This truth is what I was meant to learn and bring into the world of entrepreneurial economic development through my role in the House of Lords. This message is one I want to share with the world as I travel to uplift leaders and staff in businesses and governments. When we wake up to our truth, all things are possible. This book provides a powerful starting point for your own awakening. Enjoy the journey!
Lady Michelle Mone
Baroness of Mayfair OBE
Member of the House of Lords
Lady Michelle Mone OBE
Lady (Michelle) Mone, Baroness of Mayfair OBE, is one of the most sought after inspirational speakers of our time. Recently voted the UK’s Number 1 Female speaker, she is best renowned as one of Britain’s most influential ladies; both an entrepreneur and an advocate for equality for women in business.
Founder of Ultimo Brands International, the UK’s leading lingerie brand for the last two decades, she set out with a vision of helping woman look and feel their very best. It was upon that simple concept Baroness Mone built her career and influence, being honored with a Life Peerage to the House of Lords by the Prime Minister and an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen for her outstanding contributions to business.
Baroness Mone grew up in the impoverished East End of Glasgow when, at the age of fifteen, her father fell ill and was subsequently declared paraplegic and wheelchair bound for life. This forced Michelle to leave school without any qualifications in search of full-time employment, which sparked her instinct for entrepreneurship. At the age of just 22, she excelled herself to Head of Sales and Marketing in Scotland for the Glasgow-based Labatt’s Brewers, however was made redundant after two short years.
In 1996, after only six weeks out of work, Michelle was at at a dinner dance wearing a very uncomfortable cleavage enhancing bra. It was here the Baroness had an epiphany on what the lingerie industry was missing, and the world famous Ultimo bra was born.
After the launch of Ultimo, Michelle quickly established herself as one of Scotland’s nest exports, winning the World Young Business Achiever Award in 2000 at the Epcot Centre in Florida, as well as Business Woman of the Year at the Corporate Elite Awards in London. Her status as one of
the UK’s leading entrepreneurs was confirmed soon after when Prince Charles invited her to join the board of Directors for The Prince’s Trust.
In October 2005, Michelle attended a speaking event with former US president Bill Clinton and Mikhail Gorbachev, leading to her involvement in setting up the Women’s Enterprise Project in the Middle East in support of The Sultan of Oman. It was then she began to realize that her experiences and wisdom could transform lives and inspire others in the face of adversity.
Despite facing a challenging few years in her private life, suffering an acrimonious divorce and battle to retain her business, Michelle is now one of the United Kingdom’s most notable global speakers. The Baroness has inspired, coached and mentored audiences and individuals in over 50 countries over the last two decades. This culminated in her being given her Life Peerage in 2015, then being asked by the Prime Minister David Cameron and the former Secretary
of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith, to conduct The Mone Review; an insight into helping start up businesses in deprived areas.
Toward the end of 2016, the proud mother of Rebecca, Declan and Bethany proceeded to sell Ultimo to global lingerie giants MAS Holdings – one of the world’s largest manufacturers of intimates, with a $1.4 billion turnover and 63,000 employees. And after ofcially handing her UTAN
business over to her eldest daughter Rebecca at the start of 2017, Michelle has decided to focus on her speaking, mentoring as well as her love of design.
Having already established herself as the leading jewellery designer on QVC, Michelle proceeded to launch a global interior design business through which she is already heavily involved in the development of two residential and commercial towers in Dubai. Alongside these ventures and
her continued investment in technology businesses, Michelle is also looking to broaden her reach through an exciting new initiative which is currently in development with the view of supporting the empowerment of women.
Michelle continues her work with the House of Lords and as start-up business Tsar for the UK government.
