“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way.
If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”
~ Jim Rohn
Do you feel:
- overwhelmed by your business “to do” list?
- exhausted from working non-stop, but not making any progress?
- sad that the fun bits of your business seem to have evaporated?
- anxious about the future of your business?
- stuck and alone, with no idea where to turn for business support?
Or are you:
- Pleased with your progress so far, but unsure how to step up a gear?
- Ready to make some big changes, and needing some business support?
However you feel, I’m here to help you run your business so it’s simpler, more efficient, and more fun for you.
I’ll listen to your story, and understand how (and why) you established your business.
I’ll learn what you used to love about your business, how it’s grown and how you feel about that growth.
I’ll help you be clear about exactly what you want to achieve next.
Then, together, we’ll develop a strategy for how you can reach your goals.
During our time together, you’ll learn tools, techniques and strategies successfully used by large corporates; yet relevant and beneficial for you. We’ll identify your next steps and prioritise your actions, and I’ll hold you accountable to make sure you stick to your plan. There’ll be no jargon and no waffle: just good business thinking based on my years of experience.
How I can help you
I offer two services:
- Your Business Makeover, and
- Your Business MOT
Your Business Makeover is a coaching package of six one hour sessions designed to help you make the necessary changes to your business to grow it effectively without destroying your work life balance.
The six sessions can be taken at any time within six months of signing up – many people start fortnightly to kickstart the changes they want to make, and then move to monthly as they start to put those changes in place. If you live in London or Surrey we’ll probably meet face-to-face, but if you are based further away, then Skype or phone is usually a more practical option.
At the end of your six sessions we’ll review your progress and agree what additional help, if any, you would like.
Many clients then continue with regular coaching for a further period, and thereafter may move to a flexible arrangement where they use me more as a sounding board and mentor than a formal coach.
Your Business MOT is a one-off session lasting up to two hours, designed to take stock of where your business is at – what you do, how you do it, and how your clients respond.
How it works
Your Business Makeover
I don’t have an ‘off-the-shelf’ programme because every business is different, and where you are on your business journey will be different from others.
However, as I know you may want a sense of what we’ll do, a typical approach might look like this:
Session 1. Discovery and objectives
- Where are you now?
- What do you want to achieve, and by when?
- What does success look like?
- How will you know you’ve achieved your objective?
Session 2. Your personal toolkit
- What are your strengths?
- What are your skills?
- What are your values?
- How do these all influence and support your approach to your business?
Session 3. Strategy
- What do you need to do?
- What are the steps?
- What resources do you have?
Session 4 and 5. Addressing business-specific issues
These could include:
- Clarifying your offering – what you sell and how you sell it
- Identifying and finding your ideal clients
- Online presence
- Client management
- Managing finances
Session 6. Progress and next steps
- Where are you now?
- What’s under control?
- What needs attention?
- What’s next?
Your Business MOT
In this one-off session we will look at every aspect of your business. We will check in on what’s important to you about the business and what you are aiming to achieve, and then spend time assessing what’s working well and what’s not, and what your clients say about you.
My goal is to help you identify the key areas where you need to point your attention in order to achieve your goals AND make best use of your time and resources.
What it costs
Your Business Makeover costs £995. This includes six one hour coaching sessions, with unlimited email or text correspondence between the sessions.
