Sometimes, you want one-to-one support.
Direct access to someone who’s been there, who gets it, and can rapidly help you avoid the pitfalls, get traction and steer clear of expensive mistakes.
A personalised roadmap, the yoda to your Skywalker, the parking sensor that beeps when you're about to hit a wall.
But one-to-one support is much more than that.
Practicalities + Mindset = Traction
I can support you with both the practicalities – your goals, the finances, the marketing, the logistics and systems, and the exact steps to get there – and the inner work; the mindset shifts, the not-so-subtle nudges to adjust direction, the blocks that create procrastination.
How does it work?
The support is very much tailored to you, your business and the type of help you need.
We can work together for a one-off strategy intensive to dive into the key components of your business, where you want to get to, and clearly set out the action steps to get there.
These are also hugely useful when you're scaling up your business and want to borrow a strategic business mind (that's me), to help you see more efficient options, avoid pitfalls and clarify your focus.
I also offer ongoing one-to-one implementation support to make your plans come to life.
This can be regular one-to-one video calls, email support, and/or voxer (voice note support), which is a bit like having me living in your phone!
Kind words from clients
Your down-to-earth, caring nature - and your fantastic business-minded approach - have been a breath of fresh air.
I found myself in a situation where I wasn’t really focusing on what my heart wanted to do and my head was in jumble of what direction to go in. I was in a pickle!
I had an expectation that perhaps a coach would be a bit of a robot and dis-connected to the human nature of the relationship but you have been anything but that! Your down-to-earth, caring nature put together with your obvious fantastic business minded approach have been a breath of fresh air during the process.
Before working with you, I hesitated about paying for a coach - whether paying out for someone to help me would be of benefit - would it be a waste of time and money and would I just be in the same place after the experience?
But this has been one of the most positive decisions I have made so far in my experience as a freelance designer. If money didn’t dictate, you would be my coach indefinitely.
You have been my rock through all this, especially through the current crazy climate of a pandemic!
You're a mine of information. You've always got a solution that helps.
I hadn’t worked with a coach before and I was worried it might be intrusive. Everything I’ve done so far with my business represents a decision I’ve made. I thought a coach might challenge those decisions in a way that felt critical - and some coaches I’d found seemed so irritating and smug!
But with you, everything was constructive and positive and you've always got a solution that helps. You’re a mine of information, I always come away with things that are really helpful - and the accountability has been great. I get things done because I know I’ll be speaking to you.
It also helped that I could see that you’d already had success with your own business - that was attractive!
When you start a business, you have all these grand ideas but then end up splashing around in the shallows, not sure what to do… You help clarify and sort and order, and keep alive those dreams and remind me that they are possible.
You’re so insightful.
It's like you've come in and helped me clean my mental house out and get it organised.
You really listen, get to know what I want to achieve, then challenge me in a good way and look at angles I’ve not thought of.
Working with you helped me filter what I needed to focus on - not just the tasks in my business, you took in the bigger picture of who I am. You gave me the confidence to say what was right for me and build me back up again.
You made those challenges seem simple and gave me the steps to walk through them. It's like a fog has lifted, I’m back on track & clear headed.
When I need to grow again, I’ll be contacting you. You’ve just got it.

It's been a really positive experience working with you.
I wasn't confident developing this new product line on my own.
You've been incredibly thorough, brilliant at problem solving & you have a great eye for detail. You were patient when I didn't fully understand something & quick to respond to any queries I had.
You've also given me the tools to be able to work on those aspects of my business on my own now.
