Before creating my coaching business: ‘New Perspectives’, I was co-founder and director of a successful mobile technology company. With my business partners, we developed the business from zero to an annual 8-figure turnover.
This all sounds ‘rosy’ but there have been tough times as well:
I struggled with high levels of stress; had to manage very challenging problems inside and outside of the business; dealt with problems in my personal life and had to ensure that the business revenue and profit increased year on year.
About 5 years ago, I experienced a lot of changes in my life: I was going through a painful divorce; I was working long hours; I struggled with my mindset and I had difficulty making decisions in my business.
Previously, I had been confident and was able to make important decisions easily. But suddenly I found that I had lost my confidence, I struggled to get motivated and I couldn't see a bright future for myself or my business.
Deep down I knew my life must not continue like this.
A friend suggested that I hire a coach to help me. So I did, I found a coach, purchased a coaching programme and worked closely with my coach over the next few months.
Through the coaching process I developed an inner strength that I didn't think was possible. I became confident, resourceful, focused and happy. I resolved each of the challenges that I faced.
With my renewed focus, resourcefulness, energy and with my business partners, we developed the business to an annual 8-figure turnover and created jobs for more than 30 people.
Our customers were some of the largest companies in the UK and we won business awards.
4 years later we sold the business.
Coaching changed my life and my business!
What a journey it’s been!
This journey helped me to appreciate how both rewarding and difficult it can be to run a business.
I understand the pressure business leaders can experience running a business:
How it can impact their relationships, quality time with their family, their emotional health and their physical health.
This experience also helped me to create the belief that although, business-life can be tough -
there is always a way to move forward.
I've had the privilege of:
>> Creating a Business
>> Working with Business Partners
>> Expanding the business into new markets
>> Turning around business challenges
>> Turning around personal challenges
>> Winning large customer contracts
>> Delivering excellent service to customers
>> Winning business awards
>> Preparing the business for acquisition and then selling the business
I've learnt that the journey through life as a Business Leader can be tough if you don't fully embrace ALL of your strengths (some of which may be hidden) and resolve the parts of you that hold you back from creating the impact that's possible for you in your Business and Life.
This discovery and my experiences provide me with a solid foundation to help ambitious Business Leaders like you through my Coaching Programme.
Today I’m a certified coach.
I can help you to:
>> DISCOVER what's really holding you back
