You’re a business owner but:
You’re struggling with the business of being in business - you love what you do but now you realise there’s a lot more to running a business than your area of expertise!
You're struggling to find consistent paying clients (everyone seems to want something for free, right?). You’re an expert in your field but you need to find more clients who want your offer
You end up taking on less than ideal work because you need to pay the bills
When you started this business, you dreamt of: success; more freedom; more time with your family; more money for life’s nice things - luxury holidays and city breaks - your dream car and nice clothes; work life balance...
But the reality is that you’re working all the hours and feeling blooming frazzled. And in addition to being the expert you are, you’re trying so hard to find clients (consistently), learning how to market your business and sell, learning all about your finances and on top of that, you have to be your own IT guru when your laptop and printer won’t play ball!
The list goes on and the closest you get to self-care is a glass of wine in front of the tv, feeling exhausted at the end of the day!
You’re starting to resent the work you do and you just can’t shift this sinking feeling.
So imagine this instead:
You have a clear framework on exactly what you need to do and when, so you can tick off your to-do list knowing you’re doing everything you need to and nothing you don’t
You know exactly who your dream clients are and more importantly WHERE they are
You have created your perfect offer and clients can’t resist working with you because they know you’re just the person they need
You have processes in place for all of the business elements, yes they need your attention but you understand how to manage them
You no longer feel like you are compromising yourself – it's ok to turn away people who you know aren’t an ideal match
You charge what you are worth
Money is coming from doing what lights you up whilst serving the people you most love to work with
You have the time and resources to create that work life balance
You feel excited to get up every morning and work on your business. It’s your business so your rules
Your business is SMART

Why work with me?
When we run our own business, we start with a dream, a vision and great intentions. Very quickly and easily, we get bogged down in doing the job and we don’t keep ourselves accountable to achieving our original dream.
We then perceive that it’s becoming out of reach and maybe our business idea wasn’t that great after all… Ah! doubt can start to set in so quickly! (and keep us awake at night!)
A really great solution to this is to work with someone impartial who has the skills and experience to help your business develop.
Someone who will support you, hold you accountable and work with you, bringing you back to working toward your goals.
Great business leaders work with business advisers, mentors and coaches and together they achieve greater things.
In previous client facing advisery, coaching and mentoring roles, I’ve worked with numerous business owners just like you, who know what they want to achieve – but they’ve lacked direction and time!
I started working with business owners in an advisery capacity over 20 years ago and during that time I've worked with business of all shapes and sizes in a variety of sectors.
I’m qualified in business management, people development and performance improvement. I’m adept at recognising the big picture and honing in on specific needs to help you bring your business back to where you want it to be.
I’ve run my own business for the last 4 years, so I understand first-hand how overwhelming and lonely being in business can be – and how easy it is to get de-railed and for your business to go down a different track.
My focus and passion is helping you to achieve clear and attainable results in business.
I know that successful businesses need time for development but together, we can achieve more by helping you to find the direction you need and holding you accountable.
So, let’s talk…
Your ideal business is no longer a far-off dream… it’s waiting to be inspired by you!
