LET'S DIG STRAIGHT INTO SOME DETAILS BEFORE WE TELL YOU MORE ABOUT US AND ANSWER SOME FAQ's

Here's how it all shakes out... 

We use the pillars of The HOW People  (Happiness, Opportunities and Wellbeing) to create the framework for our HOW Inspire membership calls. Weekly LIVE calls on Zoom (Thursday 7pm) with Polly and Jo are inspiring, relaxed, inclusive and most of all FUN! We talk to all sorts of people and bring some amazing content to your teens. Bringing role models in their late 20's along with older experts we focus on personal development, positivity and enjoyment. 

"Like a weekly digital hug"
"Exactly what my daughter needs to help her through her teen years"
"The perfect antidote to lockdown for any teenage girl"
"My daughter loves every week! She can't wait to jump on the call every Thursday to see who she is going to meet, or what the next topic is"
"A weekly dose of friendship, happiness and community"
 

These are some of the subjects we look to cover within our calls. We reach out to speakers and experts from all walks of life to come and talk to us; their career path, things they'd do differently and what advice they would give to their teenage self.

You know things need to change...

#1

When you spend a lot of time worrying about your teen during these difficult times and you want to chat about something other than school, lockdown and Covid! 

Placeholder Image
#2

When you can tell she needs to have the influence of mentors and other adults. You wish she was inspired and excited about life ahead but realise that is so hard

Placeholder Image
#3

When you feel she needs to gain confidence to help her to a successful life ahead and would benefit from some outside support from mentors and experts

WHAT ABOUT A SUPPORT NETWORK?

I thought only athletes had coaches and mentors? 

Sometimes you are just not sure where to turn, or who the right person is to get involved. Parenting teens is hugely rewarding but also super tough, we know this as we have teens and children of our own.

Other adults and role models are really important in the life of our teens and these are lacking due to our social restrictions at the moment. Face to face interactions with teachers, parents friends, sports coaches. 

Sometimes teens need to chat through things with friends, other times it's teachers, colleagues, or a friend of a friend with kids the same age.

At this time, when self esteem is at an all time low and anxiety in our young people is at an all time high why wait until crisis point. Prevention is better than cure. That is why we value coaching and mentoring so much at this age. 

What about coaching and mentoring? 

  • A coach can help you find your own solutions to any problems or challenges you might face
  • A mentor can guide you to help find ways of being your best self in any situation 
  • Our coaches ask thought-provoking questions helping teens make important decisions, recognise behavioural changes and take action
  • Outcome from coaching and mentoring is showing signs of improvement or positive change in the desired performance area: we work on goal setting regularly to encourage this

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY.

Imagine how it would feel to...

Placeholder Image

Know your daughter has the tools and support system of peers, mentors and coaches to guide her through these teenage years

Placeholder Image

Know you are supported for those times when you just need advice from an expert or someone who has been there

Placeholder Image

Know that no matter what, your daughter has a network she can contact with when she is feeling up or down, never having to worry that she might be struggling

None of us expected life to look like this. Our young people need us to keep showing them the way forward.

The results speak for themselves...

“I’m not sure where to start with ‘general’ feedback - I’m so thankful that both my girls have been a part of The HOW People. I think that this is going to be life altering for so many young girls. At this tricky time when self esteem is being formed, you are showing young girls that there really is more to life than the fake reality that social media is creating."

Rhian, South Wales. Mum of twin 13 year old girls, HOW founding members

 

"The confidence you have given the girls, the way you both treat them as important individuals with voices that will be heard and the bonding you encourage between them. This is a tricky age when they are on the cusp of being a teenager as well as discovering who they are. I remember feeling so socially awkward at this age, difficult to know where your place is.

Anna, North London. Mum of 12 year old HOW founding member

MEET YOUR HOW FOUNDERS

Hey there, we are Jo and Polly.

Here is a little more about us...

JO WATKINS

Co founder of The HOW People, freelance GP, Mum of 4, Home/World/Flexi schooler. Lover of road trips, travel, friends, start up businesses and the great outdoors. As a GP, Jo sees first hand the increase in anxiety, decrease in self esteem and the stresses that are on our teenage girls.

The internet, constant comparisons on social media, the bigger concerns of the world. These are all having an impact on young people and she wanted to do her bit to help.

Happiest in the mountains or by the sea with husband Davey and the kids. She wants to see as much of the world as possible with her family. 

One of her daughters is 13 yrs old. She is a lover of adventure, her friends and TikTok. Like every teenage girl.

Jo understands exactly what goes on in a teenage house! 

Passionate about making and taking opportunities, Jo is excited about all the HOW plans. "HOW is having a really positive impact on the girls we have worked with so far and we are so excited to continue building on this."

 

POLLY CROOK

Co-founder of The HOW People with a background in design, a career in sales and strategic development for a global sports brand and currently working in development for a charity in the 'Sport for development' sector.  Polly is a beach obsessed Mumbles native, with two small children who are never happier than slightly feral and exploring rock pools.

Polly and her husband Dan try to be as environmentally conscious as possible, whilst teaching their kids how they can have a positive impact on the world.

Polly is the first to admit that growing up, education was her Kryptonite. People are always shocked when they find out that the incredibly ambitious, confident, spreadsheet queen they know today, actually left school with only three GCSE's!

After finding out she was dyslexic at an early age, those school years were pretty tough. No matter what anyone told her, she always felt like a bit of a 'thicko'. 

Everything changed for Polly when she met an unlikely mentor in sixth form who saw straight through her outer shell, and taught her the difference between being confident and having no self confidence. This pivotal moment gave Polly the confidence to resit her GCSE's finally go on to University to study design. Something she thought a 'thicko' like her could never achieve.

That is the reason that Polly believes in the incredible impact that a mentor or role model can have on the lives of young people. Because for her, it was the moment she began to believe in her abilities. That you don't have to be great at spelling to achieve great things.

"Tell me I can’t do something. I dare you.

Some might call me a bit bossy, but I like to think I’m being assertive! I can’t argue with the people that say I talk a lot.

My Dad’s mantra about his children growing up was ‘Give them roots, and give them wings’ That’s why I’m doing this. I love making things happen."

 

STILL HERE?

Good, because there's something 
Laurene needs to tell you.

"I am incredibly impressed with what Jo and Polly have managed to create with How People digital membership in such a short time. Mentoring young women to dream, to act and to connect with others are essential elements to building strong women of the future.

I enrolled my daughter in The How People digital membership hoping that her confidence would improve. It seems to be working! She has benefitted from inspiring speakers and practical workshops on many different topics: from personality types, creating a purposeful vision board, to becoming more social media savvy.

She has consistently been introduced to energetic, successful, and authentic female role models, (entrepreneurs, scientists, interior designers, environmentalists) and for that I am so grateful!

Jo and Polly honour parent involvement with timely communication and are appreciative of parent feedback. The How People’s mission is to “Encourage happiness. Take opportunities. Look after your wellbeing” and that is exactly what I want for my daughter. Thank you, How People!"

- Laurene Head, Calgary, Canada. Proud mum of a 16 year old, HOW Membership founding member

This is our real life.

Life can be messy and wonderful and scary and changing all the time. We embrace the chaos, and turn it into memories and conversations that our children will remember their entire lives.

Honest. Funny. Driven. Inspirational. Ridiculous.

Apparently, these words describe us both very well.

With very different stories to get us to this place.

A place where we are here, doing this, together.

Both following our passions and loving every minute of what we are doing.

Our stories. Our paths to get here...

Intertwined in strange ways along our lives despite growing up 200 miles apart. 

We will tell our stories along the way, and to try and paint the picture of what got us to now.

We get by on crazy work hours, maternal guilt, silly sleep hours and wondering if we are getting it all 'right'.

Well, if you have read this far, we would love to see you on the ride with us. Your daughter will thank you!

BEFORE WE GO, WHY THIS AND WHY US? 

 

We are here to help support you and your daughter for as long as you need us. Complementing your parenting and her school environment. 

We know how hard it is to get it right. In fact, it is impossible to feel you have got it right!

Work life balance, the extra stress around the pandemic the guilt of not being around to help with home schooling or finding the home schooling just really hard. That is OK!

We know how much there is to worry about at the moment in terms of external influences. Social media, pressure to look or behave in a certain way, fake reality and trying to find their place in the world. Not to mention the stress of the exam based school system, the potential to not be able to do work experience or work in a local cafe given the global pandemic. These are the things our teens are currently dealing with.

We are mothers too. Jo is a GP with a 14 year old girl in her family, so knows the challenges that brings first hand.

We are doing our best to bring up kind, well-adjusted kids who are growing up in front of our eyes.

We want to help you and your daughter grow, learn and challenge these factors together and as a result feel more connected. Some teens join on their own for our LIVE sessions every Thursday and it is THEIR time, THEIR space to listen, chat if they want and just be. Others have it on to watch with their family around so they can listen in too. It is a family membership. We have had lots of parents really enjoying the sessions too! Some watch on catch up in their own time.

Whatever works for you.

Hopefully we can help you grow and maintain that strong bond to deal with whatever life throws at you becoming mentors to your daughters offering them well needed INSPIRATION to walk their own path in life.
