Transformation of hill farm makes finals of national book awards

By The Wellbeing Farm

09 Mar 2021

The book ‘Why Put a Bow Tie on a Llama? How a crazy idea can change your life and transform your business’, written by Celia Gaze and published by Practical Inspiration Publishing, is an honest and highly practical guide to starting your own business, recovering from work-related burnout and bouncing back from failure.

Celia Gaze, made a name for herself putting bow ties on llamas - after hitting burnout in a high powered NHS job and experiencing the very real de-habilitating impact of stress. Quitting her high pressured job, she spent three months reflecting and reviewing her life - and found the answer to her future staring back at her, in a rundown farm owned by her partner.

Attracted to a new challenge that took her ‘back to basics’ Celia decided to dedicate her time to bringing this farm back to life, with a vision of harnessing nature and using the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ to design and build a venue focused on wellbeing. She created The Wellbeing Farm.

This passion project saw her in court, nearly bankrupt and once again experiencing high levels of stress as she had walked in blindly to a project she was out of her depth in…..then inspiration came when she put a bow tie on a llama and she transformed the venue into an award-winning wedding venue that attracted couples from miles around.

Celia’s book tells the story of how she transformed the farm and is bursting with down-to-earth, straight-talking advice and Celia’s passionate guidance on self-care, it is an inspirational and invaluable read for anyone looking to transform their business or even start their own.

Celia’s book has been shortlisted in the Business Journey category of the Business Book Awards. Celia has been listed amongst some amazing business stories including Rob Law, MBE who founded the Trunki and Rob Angel who created Pictionary the bestselling board game.
