You dreamt of working in your own business, spending quality time with your family or on the things you really appreciate doing in your life…
How’s that going?Do you find it is all about busy-ness – and not so much about business?
If I could wave a magic wand
- to gift you more time
- quality time
- to spend with the people
- doing the things
- which you absolutely LOVE
…how would that make you feel?
I help coaches, consultants and solo business owners to serve the people they really want to work with, doing the things they are passionate about to make a difference to their clients’ lives. With focus, concentrating on business building activites – leaving precious time AWAY from their business whilst still driving growth into it.
I don’t believe in cut and paste solutions.
Instead, I help you change what you think marketing is. I disrupt main stream big business methods, and I’ve rewritten it to give the power back to entrepreneurs who want to do their ‘thing’ better, but are passionate about keeping their individuality.
I work with people who:
- are aspirational – yet fed up because they’ve big plans but no idea where to start…
- overwhelmed by their to do list – never having time (or energy) to promote their business because there are so many things they HAVE to do…they never get round to doing it…
- hate traditional ‘selling’ techniques – because it is soooo cheesy…ugh…
I can help…

Solopreneur, manager, director, parent, carer & serial volunteer, I am a professional, award winning, qualified marketer with over 30 years business experience.
I offer a business skills boost for small business owners via virtual mentoring sessions, to build strategies and action for the whole business or simply help clients to create the best marketing options for profit.
Using my 32 years’ business experience in management, strategy, marketing and sales, I help you analyse your goals, identify your customer needs and plan how to grow your business, profitably and with increased confidence.
I keep it simple, strategic – and sane!
Why work with me?
I have worked across many industries and business types – corporates, network marketing groups (MLNM), franchise, small businesses plus as a sole trader and as a company director.
A world-class sales, marketing and management training with the AVIVA group, gave me a high-flying sales and marketing career (in Yorkshire and in the City) and the opportunity to coach and mentor 100s of colleagues and clients – starting at just 19 when I was training senior staff in new customer services methods. Not only did I work in group and 1-2-1 settings, I developed award winning guides and support material for UK commercial insurance brokers to coach and train them in handling complex insurance needs across a wide range of sectors.
I was successful using strategic planning – and taught others how to best use it.Now, I am ready to help you too.
As a trained business and marketing strategist I developed a ‘goal setting and getting’ program for myself and my teams – and this is what forms the basis of my business boosting coaching programs now available to you.
As a senior sales executive, this strategic approach helped me grow my business panel turnover from £3.5m to £6m in under two years – an increase untouched by my colleagues at that time.
What about small businesses?
Within my MLNM business, and then in my publishing franchise, I coached 100s of solopreneurs and small business owners in sales, marketing and business growth. I grew a high performing MLMN team through group and 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring, resulting in top 30 status out of 10,000 traders. As an editor and publisher I turned around the magazine business which I had taken over, using my own strategic planning methods. My USP was to offer marketing mentoring to help my clients plan how their advertising would achieve the very best results – and I was rewarded with an 80% rebooking rate.
The work life balance forms the basis of strategies I develop with clients – and is not an afterthought.
Like you I have spent many years working and developing my businesses around my family life (including volunteering for a myriad of organisations) which has definitely had its ups and downs.
So I truly understand how you, as solopreneur parent and carer, face specific issues in running your business around your home life.
It is so easy to take advantage of my many years of experience to boost your business growth. Let’s get this thing done!What’s not to like?
