This is right for you if…
You’re struggling with particular challenges and need help with them now.
You want bespoke support that focuses entirely on your business and goes at your own pace, rather than being part of a group.
You want an experienced sounding board who has no agenda other than helping you achieve your unique goals.
“Open to doing things differently?
Ready to be challenged and held to account?”
Marc Jantzen, TheNub
When it comes to growing your business fast, ‘pure’ coaching – which assumes that the client always has the answers – isn’t always the right approach. Sometimes we need to be shown exactly what to do, where to prioritise, or what we need to stop doing to get different results. My approach evolves depending on exactly what you need; now supporting, now guiding and now challenging so that you will rapidly think, behave and achieve in new ways.
To achieve the best possible results in the shortest possible time, you don’t just need to do new things – you need to do them in the right order. Why invest in a social media campaign to drive traffic to your website if your website is uninspiring and out of date? Why keep discounting your day rate if your existing projects aren’t driving maximum profit? Why bother responding to a tender if you don’t have credible case studies in place? Our plan to transform your business will have a logical and effective flow.
If you have an immediate issue that needs to be resolved or a tough decision that needs to be taken, I’ll help you to tackle it straight away. Of course, we’ll also work on a robust and detailed longer-term plan, underpinned by smart diagnostics. But I also make sure I understand the essence of your business and needs from the off, so that I can start adding value to any pressing problems and opportunities you have in our very first hour.

Once we’re working together, you’ll get direct and open access to my mentoring and advice. We’ll start by agreeing our priority areas to focus on, those that will have the biggest impact on your business in the least possible time. From the moment we start talking, you’ll get answers about what’s holding you back and what you need to succeed at the level you’ve always wanted – answers to questions that may have been bothering you for years.
For example, one recent client was struggling to understand how he could engage his senior team with his ambition to exit, without having to give equity away for free. I was able to show him how to structure a deal that worked for everyone in less than 30 minutes.
Another client had been grappling with whether she should reposition her core offering for years.
After one coaching conversation she knew exactly what she needed to do, and could get back to focusing on activity that would grow her business.
I never take on more than five clients at a time, to make sure that I can give you my full attention.
In my experience, a monthly one-day workshop provides a great balance of time and results, although we can of course work with whatever frequency is best for you. Here’s how our transformation cycle will work:
I own a business that sells time / expertise for money
I have a level of urgency to get started
I have an appetite to start running my business differently
