Self description

Female , 74

I have been self employed most of my adult life. Having started 3 successful businesses & sold profitably. At same time always worked as business adviser and trainer with particular interest in women entrepreneurs. I have 2 children and a lovely grandson. I love travel especially to US.A. where my daughter lives. And I read endlessly to the annoyance of my partner. I thought I might retire soon but I am busier than ever in the business world especially dealing with Start ups

Life experiences

Start -up's

I run seminars and 1 to1 meetings for pre-start or relatively new businesses. I cover almost every aspect relating to getting started. Women are of special interest to me as I believe that even in 2009 we still need to try even harder to be taken seriously.


If I had to list topics in order of importance; research would be at the top. Most people I help come to me sadly lacking in that area and more to the point don't know what it is that they need to be researching. They believe that simply because someone tells them they have 'a great idea', it must be o.k.

Softer skills

I like to work through topics such as assertiveness in business. Work/life balance and Time Management.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I have received so much help and kindness over the years I have worked and I worry about people getting into difficulties without support.I am not sure exactly why this is better than any other kind of mentoring but I hope I will discover what is special about Horsemouth- or is your name the explanation?

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
