This programme is unique in that it helps you improve your personal and business performance in a variety of ways:

  1. You will have the opportunity to eradicate and reprogramme any limiting beliefs that might be holding you back.

  2. You will start consciously changing your habits and start building daily goals and a winning mindset that gets you focussing upon what's really possible for you and your life!

    'Secure and autonomous leaders have life stories that allow them to 'live-fully' in the present, unimpaired by troubles from the past, denial in the present or attachment -related worries about the future' (Siegel, 1999, p91).

  3. You will learn the 'how' of doing business and start working 'on' instead of 'in' the business. This translates into you learning how to read the environment, market and opportunities and becoming far more proactive in your approaches to maximise and profit from your discoveries.
  4. You will develop a far more structured approach to you starting and growing your business. 
  5. You will consciously develop a business mission, vision, values, operating procedures, an operational plan with SMART goals that you will be held accountable to not only create. but to manifest.
  6. You might even be able to save money on your business insurance because you can demonstrate that you are investing in ongoing professional development.
  7. All of the methodologies used can be translated into other areas of your life, work and home.

This programme has been designed to help you start-up and scale-up any business.

Week-by-week I will be walking you a process of growing up a business.

I have worked in a business training and consultancy capacity for over thirty years, therefore the techniques and tools I will be working on with you are thoroughly tried and tested.

However I am not so proud to say when I don't know something and will signpost you to someone or something that can.

My aim over the eight weeks is to help you to build a profitable and sustainable business.

My role is to help you build your ideas, plans, skills and understanding how you want to move forward becoming the very best version of you in life and business.

You might that you really want to go-for-it and make your millions quickly, or you might decide that want is manageable time and financial freedom working just a few days a week around an already busy lifestyle.

As I say it's about you and what you want to create to make your life work, to make your life great and to offer you the fulfillment that as yet you just haven't been able to reach.

Each Friday morning we will be tackling a stepping stone on the pathway to you building your business model. We will be aiming for you to know that you know how your business works profitably and how to scale it up successfully online and offline.

This programme might demonstrate to you that your current thinking just won't work and we will both be honest with one another about that. However you won't be dumped there. We will look at version two, three and four ideas and try together to discover how to build a business proposition that could work for you.

My aim is that when you finish the programme that you will have:

  1. Increased the profitability of your business.
  2. Fallen back in love with your business.
  3. You will have implemented a structured approach to develop yourself and your business ongoing.
  4. You will have achieved Full Membership of the Institute of Leadership & Management, gained further digital qualifications online tools and resources, developed a broader outlook on how business works from listening to lectures from industry experts and started networking globally within the Institutes international network of members.
  5. You will continue to ensure you have in place an accountability buddy to ensure that you are kept on track to achieve your projected ambitions.
  6. You move forward with clarity and an understanding of joining up your dots to start making your business a business you fall in love with that's profitable and adds amazing value to your life.

This programme has been designed for both.

As we start right at the beginning of aligning you with the development of your business, it really does offer you the opportunity to press the refresh button and start again - no matter which stage you are at thinking about or actually running yours or someone else's business.
