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 and created jobs for more than 30 people.
This all sounds ‘rosy’ but there have been very tough times as well:
I struggled with very high-levels of stress; had to manage very challenging problems inside and outside of the business; dealt with problems in my personal life and on top of that I 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 very long hours and was highly stressed - I really struggled with my mindset – I had difficulty making decisions in my business.
Where 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 could not see a bright future for myself or my business.
But I knew this had to change…
A friend suggested that I hire a business 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 became more 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!
What a journey it’s been!...
This journey helped me to appreciate how tough it can be to run a business and I also understand the pressure that Business Leaders are under.
However, this experience also helped me to create the belief that although, Business and Life can be tough - there's always a way to move forward.
I've had the privilege of:
>> Creating a Business
>> Working with Business Partners
>> Developing the business into new markets
>> Turning around business challenges
>> Turning around personal challenges
>> Winning large contracts

These experiences provide me with a solid foundation to help Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs like you through my Business Leader Coaching Programme.
