More than a Business Coach
I call myself a sales-focused business coach, trainer, mentor and speaker but in reality, I am so much more.
Running my own business has been an education in itself. When I needed help there were lots of people who could tell me the theory, or the “what to do”. But what I really needed to know was “how to do it”!
I didn’t want to spend endless hours online receiving contradictory advice about how to set things up. I wanted to work with experts who could teach me what to do and guide me as I implemented this against my strategy. This is my learning style and one which I follow with my clients.
That’s why I’m so focused on working with facts ahead of feelings. It’s the best way to get results! I give you logical, workable methods and easy-to-follow tools that you can tailor to your business, personality, and to a style that feels comfortable for you and your team. I can also help you implement your plans and ideas with execution-focused sessions.
How did I get here?
If we go back a few years, I was working in a business development, sales and marketing role in the corporate world. The thing is, I always felt something was missing. I longed for a role with more purpose and craved the idea of working in a way that let me use my knowledge and experience.
It was only when I found myself out of work in 2018 that I was able to step off the hamster wheel and evaluate my options. After looking at various job boards knowing what I didn’t want to do, I decided that I would like to utilise my skills and take them to coaches, consultants, advisors and service-based small business owners where I felt I could make more impact.
Although I had many contacts, I didn’t have connections or networks in the area I wished to serve – small business owners. However, I did have sales and marketing experience from the corporate world.
I had to find a way to attract and convert clients for myself and that’s how the Simplified Sales System was born. It’s a unique approach which lets my clients scale their businesses with easy-to-follow steps and tools that feel authentic and not at all salesy.
I fully understand the stress of setting up a new business and know just how scary it can feel at times! I also recognise that there are lot of business owners who become stuck no matter how long they’ve been trading. That’s why the practical examples, structures and tools in the Simplified Sales System are so effective – they’re relevant for all businesses – large or small, established or new.
Life’s about balance!
I live with my husband James, and our two British Blue cats – Fred and Charlie. When I’m not working, I love gardening, visiting craft fairs, and getting out in the fresh air.
I’m into my exercise and believe a fit body is a fit mind. I always make time for a daily walk and regularly sweat it out at the gym. I also love a relaxing Pilates & Spirit class and visiting the spa – which does involve a 60-second dunk in the cool pool! I fundamentally believe that life is about balance, so while I enjoy exercising, I also am partial to the odd G&T!
