What to Expect
I work with you to build a business model that will provide additional income while requiring less input from you.
Since 2000, I’ve been working with owners of small businesses to help them build profitable businesses they enjoy running, without having to spend every waking hour working. More recently, I’ve realised the internet holds the key to make this a reality for more professional service providers even for those on a restricted budget.
If you use the ideas on this website and in the products and services, you will see real results. You can expect to:
Serve more clients while working less hours. If your business model means you have a full appointment schedule 5 days a week, there’s a limit to how many clients you can work with. And a limit to your earning potential.
Set up additional income streams. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some extra income that didn’t rely on you meeting up with clients? Well, you’ve probably already got the basics to turn into extra revenue sitting on your computer or in a filing cabinet.
Build your brand online. As with any business model, marketing is a vital key to success. Using the various internet tools, you can make sure more people find out about you, and even buy from you while you’re asleep!
Become a sought-after authority. Once the word spreads further about how good you are at what you do, you’ll get more enquiries and more referrals for new business.
Eliminate the ‘feast or famine’ cycle of getting new business. There’s nothing worse than not knowing where the next piece of work is coming from. When you have a business model in place providing you with additional income, you won’t have to worry about that again.
Guiding Beliefs or Values
The information on this site is based on my direct experience of what works. If I’m putting my professional reputation on the line by recommending particular tools and techniques, you can be sure I’ve tried and tested them out myself first. Only if it works will I then teach it.
I believe that one of my most important functions is that of a ‘cheer leader’ – to encourage my clients and keep them motivated to reach their business and lifestyle goals, especially through tough times.
Every client is different and needs different things in order to succeed. One size definitely does not fit all. That’s why I offer a variety of products (see store) and coaching services (see services page) depending on where you’re starting from and what results you want to achieve.
Keeping things simple. There’s little point in explaining exactly how an internal combustion engine works if all that’s needed are driving lessons because you want to learn how to drive a car. Therefore I only teach you what you need to know to get the results you want.
You don’t have time to try out lots of things that don’t work. Using the systematic processes I’ve developed over a decade of working with small businesses, you’ll soon see positive results.
Why Should You Choose Me?
You may have noticed that there are a lot of business coaches to choose from these days! One of the things that makes me different from many of them is that I’ve successfully built my own small business for over 10 years – so what I teach comes to you straight from the ‘coal face’. When you combine that with a corporate career, including 12 years working for a hugely profitable global corporation (Toshiba), I bring a unique blend of experience, tools and knowledge to my clients’ businesses.
Now that you have a better idea about the results you can expect by working with me, and how I work with clients, go to the Services page to learn about the specific programs and products I offer.
