business mentoring and coaching to help you develop your business

“Mike actively listens, asks thoughtful questions and gives practical advice based on his vast experience”

Entrepreneur (noun, by definition): “a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.” You?

Mentor (my definition): a blend of coaching and advisory support. Not just asking you questions, not ‘telling’, but sharing experience and contributing, to fuel or spark thoughts, ideas and plans.

 

Taking your business to the next level can be a real challenge.

With so many things to focus on, how do you best use your valuable time? You enjoy winning more customers, but that gets harder. You can’t recruit the talent you need or one of your valued team members resigns. You may have the team thing sorted but a customer leaves or a pandemic brings considerations that were not on the agenda before.

You are spinning a number of plates, so you don’t have the time to understand or manage your numbers, your success drivers, your profitability and cashflow impact. Based on my work with other business owners, I’ll guess that you want to grow your revenue, profitability could be better, cashflow could be improved and your drawings deserve to be higher?

From my experience, too often we feel forced into the daily operations that stop us from working on the business, building our trusted team and executing the strategy that best serves our customers in line with our promise. You’re working ‘in’ the business more than you would like, with too much admin, rather than spending more time ‘on’ future business growth opportunities.

With so much to do no wonder you find it a challenge to develop the business, improve your return on investment and enjoy the choices you deserve.

Does that sound familiar? Where are you right now? Where do you want to be?

As a Mentor, Coach, Adviser or Non Exec Director, I strive to combine and share the experience and skills that I have gained from running my own various businesses, advising many more and holding past senior roles, in leadership, management, finance, business development, health & safety, operations, training, sales and marketing.

My purpose is to support others achieve the success they define. I do this by helping my clients to visualise, plan, maximise their time and execute with motivation whilst providing some accountability. With my broad rounded business knowledge and experience, I will support you with a valued contribution to your key decisions and help you obtain the business your hard work deserves. 

 

As an entrepreneur you likely have ambitions, vision and drive. What you may be lacking is structure, control and time.

Despite the passion you have for your business, there are frustrations and undoubtedly challenges that you just couldn’t foresee.

Did you start your business to simply give yourself another job? Or do you want more from your business?

   

Let me help you have the business your hard work deserves

As a business owner myself, I understand that you want to give your customers the best experience, so you don’t have time for all the other things you need to do and sometimes all the other hats you wear detract from that desire.

A step change is needed. Defined as an action that delivers significant results, my brand of business mentoring combined with coaching helps you define a plan of action to invest in the future of your business.

Back to you…

You CAN run a business without having to wear 101 hats, you CAN plan for your business to work for you, and you CAN plan for growth without putting in more hours and more effort.

Let’s go back to basics and together examine your business model to help you develop a mindset for growth. This doesn’t mean I will give you more work to do! No, in fact you tell me what you can realistically achieve, and I will share my experience and proven tools to get you there.

Are you ready?

The harsh reality is that business is not without risk, but you’re an entrepreneur, you know that already! The most successful entrepreneurs in the world take calculated risks and do what is needed to make change happen. And today, they feel completely fulfilled financially, mentally, emotionally, and physically – because they accept risk and learn from failure.

I’m here as your business mentor to steer you through those risks and identify potential failures before they occur. I want to make sure your hard work pays off.

Mentor: Ask your self these questions around accountability
Mentor: Ask your self these questions around support
Mentor: Ask your self these questions around your future
Mentor: Ask your self these questions around your work and desires

So, the question, what do you want for your business?

  • Are you getting the results your hard work deserves?
  • Are you maximising your opportunities to improve your revenue?
  • Are you in control and using your valuable time in the best possible way?
  • Do you know what’s holding you back?
  • Do you have a handle on your ‘success drivers’?
  • Do you have someone you bounce an idea off or provide another pair of eyes?
  • Are you clear where you want to be in a years’ time and how to get there?
  • Do you plan and execute what you really need to do, without distraction?

If you answered NO to any of these questions, OR if you are just ready to take your business to the next level, then let’s talk about how I can support you make the change often needed.

Clients' kind words

"I started 1-2-1 mentorship sessions with Mike earlier this year. His practical and pragmatic nuggets of wisdom in all aspects of business make him stand out from the crowd. Mike is super-fast in responding to all queries, and the regular reviews keep one accountable. Highly recommended."

"Although I was sceptical at first, thinking we would have 'homework' to do, Mike does not actually work like that at all. He makes us think about priorities for business goals and then discusses how to make them happen in a realistic time scale. I’d say that if you’re stuck in a rut, working in your business - then give Mike a call.”

"Mike’s support and guidance have been invaluable since the start of the first UK lockdown. He understood the growing pains I was facing in my business and provided excellent advice during a very difficult time for many. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike to any business owner ready to take their business to the next level."

"Mike combines a calm focus with incredible enthusiasm. He challenges my motives for doing something and more importantly for NOT doing something and then works with me to find the best solution.
Mike has helped me to articulate my personal brand and given me the confidence to develop this.”

"I wanted to take my business to the next level and Mike is the man to do that. Mike's phone is always on and he is not precious with his time. Most importantly my return on investment has been huge, not only the increase in new clients but the development of my business for the long term."

"I would highly recommend working with Mike, especially if you need focus, accountability, direction and simplification, but have an enormous to-do list and are not sure where to start. Mike will help you achieve what you want, whilst making you feel like you did it all. Thanks Mike!"

“Mike was instrumental when I first started up, providing valuable tips that had I not learnt early on would have cost me dearly. Mike's an excellent coach if you're looking for someone to tell you how it is and provide you with a non-biased view on your thinking. He can genuinely help to steer your business down the right path and help it flourish."

"Mike has been invaluable in helping me find calm and clarity in the hustle and bustle of entrepreneurship. I highly recommend him for all things: Strategy, Business-mentorship and Business Development."

"I engaged with Mike to enable him to 'kick my butt'. He’s supported me from when I first became an employer to where my business is now and how proud I am of my great team. He likes to play devil's advocate now and again and can always see a positive when some days I can't!"

"Mike has become an integral part of our business management. He’s guided, supported, listened, and provided outstanding advice. We’re moving forward as a business in so many areas thanks to Mike's support.”

"I was at a crossroads. Since that time Mike has been my rock; a voice of reason, listening, challenging, and ensuring I consider as much as possible in my decision making and keeping me focused. I’m now taking my business where I want it to go, not just getting by working in it."

"Mike has helped me consider my marketing and how the business is presented. The sessions with Mike have brought clarity; consolidated my thoughts and clearly defined what needs to be done. Overall, this has helped me make huge stride in my business."

"Mike's flexible approach is invaluable. He very skilfully guided me through areas I was vague and uncommitted on. The result has been that I've made significant progress on defining a new business which is authentically me. Moreover, the process he's taken me through has helped me build my confidence and certainty."

"I had a business plan but was struggling with what my value proposition was and what my pricing structure should be. I was immediately impressed by Mike's enthusiasm for my new venture, and the vision and passion with which he approached each aspect I was struggling with. Our session together brought me immediate clarity. Thank you Mike."

"Mike is different to the other coaches that I have worked with. He will ask me questions, but also challenges me on some of my responses. He has a much more commercial outlook than other coaches and is someone I trust as another pair of eyes. A perfect sounding board for me. Certainly recommended."

"Mike has a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows in every meeting and phone call we have. He has helped me plan and map out the journey to the life I want and how my business will get me there. What’s more, he’s keeping me on track and accountable to achieving it. If you’re looking to take your business to the next level, speak to Mike!"

"I attended one of Mike’s excellent workshops, and then a follow up 1-2-1 session, which was incredible. Like many business owners, I hate being dictated to but equally often need advice from experience. For me Mike is a highly experienced and successful entrepreneur acting almost as a business partner."

"Mike is an excellent business coach and mentor. He actively listens, asks thoughtful questions, and gives practical advice when needed based on his vast experience running other businesses. Mike has been incredibly helpful in my journey, and his support has been invaluable."

"I chose Mike because of his genuine desire to support and help his clients. I have worked with many respected senior leaders, and Mike still manages to bring new ideas and approaches. He’s good at encouraging me to focus on high impact activities which don't form a natural part of my skill-set."

"As a business owner, it's easy to procrastinate. Enter Mike... I’m getting results and achieving more than expected. Mike’s a good listener, a great sounding board and a meticulous action note taker! I would highly recommend any business owner booking some time with Mike."

"More than Mike's experience is that he is an incredibly generous and supportive individual. He provides guidance and critiques our current and future business plans, he challenges us on 30 & 90 day goals, in particular making sure that we do not overwhelm ourselves. He is also very positive. I am very confident that with Mike onboard we will achieve our goals."

“Mike is well networked in the area and will actively connect and promote the people he knows. His experience with small businesses, generosity with his time and ability to actively promote others will help you develop your business in the way you want to. I am glad I chose Mike.”

"I found it difficult to prioritise my ambitious growth plans, struggling to find time to plan for our next growth phase. Mike’s pragmatic, wise advice and his extensive knowledge has been invaluable and has helped me to scale my business. I can’t thank him enough."

"Mike’s ability to actively promote others, and provide a seasoned approach to business and the development of those businesses is second to none"
