Steps leading up a mountain with the words 'The 6 step process for designing a business as unique as you are'

There are lot of gurus teaching the formula that they used to create their successful business. But you are not them.

Don’t try to shoehorn your life into someone else’s business model. Instead, learn how to create a work-life that suits you.

This 12 minute video will walk you through the 6 steps to moulding a business as unique as you are.

Hi, I’m Mike…

We all have different strengths, and mine is that I’m great at helping small business owners and career professionals to see and explore opportunities to evolve their unique working lives, so they can confidently make informed decisions.

As a qualified accountant and ICF-accredited coach, I have a whole toolkit of techniques to support you in crafting a business that truly works for you.

I can help you get clear on what’s happening in your business and what options you have, using my finance skills.

And my coaching skills will help you to understand what works for you, enable you to make decisions that are right for you, and support you in implementing your plans.

I offer a calm, supportive space to help you make the right decisions for you. There are no pre-conceived ideas about what you ‘should’ do or ‘six-figure models’ to shoehorn your business into.

I’ll help you to consider what’s right for you, and to confidently make firm decisions, so that you end up with a business you love to run.
