Can you explain your business to a 6 year old?
How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a business coach?
I’ve been running my coaching business since 2007, I’m celebrating 10 years this year! I started my career working for a large communications company, going through their graduate training scheme and working in a number of positions across Account Management (sales) Team Management and Customer Service. My final role within the company was managing a large team and a high profile customer; Europe’s largest mobile account. This all gave me a great understanding of people management, personal and professional development, order fulfilment; keeping customers happy and forecasting revenues. I achieved enormous success, with awards in team management, sales and customer delivery which reflected the passion I put into all of my roles.
Whilst I loved the various roles I had, the company politics meant I knew it wasn’t really where I wanted to be long term. So, having worked in India for a few months delivering a huge project, I sought the guidance of a Life Coach, which gave me the confidence to resign – I knew then I wanted to run my own business. You can read more of My Story here.
I loved personal and professional development and wanted to share all the business acumen I’d gathered. I retrained and set up my own coaching and training business, and having completed a huge range of courses, including an NLP Practitioner course, an ILM in Mentoring and Management and immersed myself in all manner of marketing, mindset strategies, client attraction methods and successfully producing the results for myself, I now work with other business owners to help them create a business they can love too…
Who are your clients exactly?
I work with startups and small business owners who love what they do, only they have never been taught the strategies to get them to the clients they love to work with, who want to buy the products and services they love to offer.
The clients I tend to work with are trying to do the whole kit and caboodle – running their business as well as the doing; delivering their service as well. I help them maximise their skills and strengths so they can start to focus on what they do best. Here are a sample of the kind of businesses I have worked with so far:
- Video and Film Production
- Holistic Therapists
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Online Directories
- Franchisee holders
- Sales Trainers
- Life Coaches
- Business Coaches
- Recruitment Agencies
- Virtual Assistants
- Aesthetic Nurses
- Online Trainers
- Fitness Experts (Personal Trainers)
- Beauty Therapists
- Social Media specialists
- Interior Designers
- Beauty Salons
How are you different from other business coaches?
I have been told on a number of occasions that I work just as hard as my clients do to get them results. I’m really passionate about helping business owners, who are just like me, to achieve the same successful results that I have.
Over the years, my experience, skills and gained knowledge mean that I have (and will continue to do so in our ever changing market) honed my coaching programs so that we cover off all the elements needed for you to have a successful business without having to compromise your offering (and personal life!). I work with a business coach on an ongoing basis as it’s important that I continue to practice and grow my skills in an ever evolving world.
I only work with solopreneurs and small business owners; those who are equally passionate about what they do and can implement and effect positive changes and results pretty quickly.
I’m honest, always willing to help others and will challenge you in the best way possible to be offer the best version of yourself and your business.
