successful , experienced , realistic
I am a business mentor and trainer at the moment, though I do many things. I have successfully built a business from nothing to a <£1m t/o and sold it. Since then I have counselled many MD's through the same process. I am now researching and training my self in retail (not an area I have worked in before) I am passionate about start ups, women in business and selling.
I have two independent daughters, one who still lives at home, both have the work ethic. I have a personal passion for travel, houses and gardens. I like keeping healthy by walking and being in the open air. I would love to give up smoking!
You have heard the expression "Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail" well I have seen so many business plans and reviewed them. I have seen business's grow on the back of a table napkin and I have seen business fail because too much work has gone into internal paper work. So speak to me if you would like some advice. Actions speak louder than words!
In my area, I find people are happy to think they can create a brand. They like the marketing, but then they fail to sell. They think selling just happens and are maybe a little embarrassed by it. I can show people the difference between marketing and selling.
Being in business is a risk and there are laws in the UK that sometimes seem to be there to stop your business growing. Breaking them is not expensive in terms of cash, however they create a fear that can stop people moving forward. Understanding the risks and taking them is part of moving forward.
The internet is part of our every day lives and people use it and trust it. Horsesmouth is an excellent site and a great way of sharing experience which helps me 'be heard' and helps others by benefiting from my experience and knowledge. I believe by telling people how I overcame my personal challenges, it helps me focus on my next challenge and because I have learnt from other people in the past I know that my help will reassure people that they are not alone. I also hope to benefit from listening to the stories of others on the site.
