MENTORING and coaching TO HELP YOU DEVELOP YOUR BUSINESS
You run a business, are great at what you do, have had some success but you want a change, something different. That may be a better return on your investment, more time or more control.
From my experience of working with business owners like you, it is likely that you’ve already achieved a certain degree of success but now want to make improvements or take your business to the next level and as a result have the business you desire and your hard work deserves.
You’ve perhaps been looking to develop your business but not found the model or strategy to make it happen for you. You may have even stagnated with ideas, energy and results or stuck at a crossroad unsure which direction to take next.
You may have developed the business to a point whereby the decisions to be made are bigger due to greater responsibilities around your circumstances, your team, your suppliers and your customers. We know business can be lonely at times!
Like most entrepreneurs you’re probably experiencing a few of the most common frustrations. Many business owners appreciate that business can be simple but have not found the next step that easy.
What is ‘top of mind’ for you? What are those things frustrating you, annoying you, keeping you awake, making you procrastinate. If you can remove the weight on your shoulders, the pressure on your chest, then you have the time and energy for the development of your business.
In my experience any obstacles and challenges are more easily overcome with a considered plan.
So what’s your plan? What’s your purpose?
Don’t reinvent the wheel. Don’t make the same mistakes that others have made. Avoid procrastination and grasp the opportunities ahead of you.
Would you more easily develop your business with a model and plan that gives you focus, direction and accountability?
If you had more time and purpose, could your business generate even more revenue and more profit?
Would a fresh, impartial, unbiased, external perspective help you gain control and take your business to the next level?
As your Mentor, would access to my experience, proven tools and models shortcut the improvement of your business?
I support ‘owner managed’ service businesses, who have the desire to develop their business and often want to add another zero on their revenue numbers.
Mentoring is more than just ‘Coaching’. Yes I will coach you but also share my experience, broad knowledge and expertise to spark or fuel your ideas or contribute to your thoughts.
Whether you need help with business planning, a specific area of your business, accountability, or just a motivational boost to fill your energy pot, I’m here to support you every step of the way.
As your mentor, I’m invested in your success. I am confident that I can help you build on your past success, improve your current assets and in the future have the business you deserve for all your hard work.

HOW MY MENTORING WORKS
"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 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"
Being a solo director, bouncing ideas off Mike has been invaluable and he has been a great source of encouragement, motivation and ideas.
Thanks for all your help to date!"
His extensive business experience often leads to insights that bring clarity to a topic or offer a fresh perspective. He serves as a truly valuable sounding board
Neil and I highly recommend working with Mike and we know he will continue to help our business grow."
