6 months of business mentoring for small business owners who want a trusted adviser on hand as they evolve their small business
When someone tells you “oh wow, you’ve built such an amazing small business” – does a part of you wish they knew how lost you sometimes feel?
I know how hard you work, how badly you want to succeed, how much you believe in the potential of your business, and how much progress you’ve already made.
But at some point – between juggling orders, suppliers and the relentless need to keep up on social media, you’ve begun to feel overwhelmed. Sound familiar? I’ve love to help.
My business mentoring has helped many small business owners gain confidence and clarity.
6 months support, a full review of your business, and on-tap support to make the changes you need to help your business flourish
We’ll kick off the business mentoring process with a review of an in-depth questionnaire that I ask you to complete before working together. Covering a range of topics, the questionnaire will provide me with the context I need to help identify where things are working really well, and where your areas of development are.
It’s a unique opportunity to find out how your business is performing compared to my extensive experience of product businesses.
Based on our discovery work in the first session, we’ll create a bespoke action plan for you and your business, identifying what actions you need to take in the short, medium and long term to address any issues we’ve uncovered.
We’ll also set key actions for you to complete during our time together to help give you accountability and clear check-in points for future calls.
The focus on the next two calls will be all about sales. Again, this will be tailored to your individual business, but the types of topics we might cover will include:
At the end of each call, we’ll identify the key actions you agree to take before our next call, to help keep the momentum going and keeping you accountable for making real change in your business.
Our final two calls will be focused on your plans for the business in the short, medium and long term. This will be entirely bespoke to your business. By the end of our time together, you’ll have a clear plan to move you forward, and feel confident that you are putting into place what you need to get there.
How determined and creative small business owners just like you have found the business mentoring program.
Creative and innovative product businesses who want expert input and clarity into improving the way that their business runs.
Suitable for those that sell online or offline, wholesale or direct to the consumer or a mix of all of those.
The process is tailored to you and your unique business and is designed to help you fill in any “blind spots” you might have as the founder.
Mentoring is suitable for established businesses looking for expert support, as well as early stage ambitious start-ups.
A selection of my fabulous clients
Since 2018 I have worked with hundreds of creative product businesses to grow their sales, manage their inventory, unlock their profit potential and build businesses that last.
In 2023 I was voted in the UK’s top 5 sales advisors by Enterprise Nation. I founded The Resilient Retail Club to share my more-than two decades of industry experience with the most exciting sector of the retail industry – businesses just like yours.
I am a supportive mentor, and love nothing more than working closely with small business owners to help them make real changes to their product business.
The next step with business mentoring is a free, no-obligation call to find out more about how I can help
If you don’t see the answer to your question right here, please get in touch, we’d love to help.
I usually take on mentoring clients on a rolling basis as other clients finish their time with me. My next availability will be from September 2023, so the mentoring will run from September to November, take December off, and finish in January to March.
I only take on a small number of clients at a time, so I suggest getting in touch to join the waiting list for September if you are interested.
Absolutely, I have run many sessions with two people. Zoom works very well for hosting multiple people at a time.
Yes, any session where we meet on Zoom is recorded and uploaded to a shared folder for you to access afterwards. Many people prefer this as it means that they don’t need to take so many notes.
Yes, you are welcome to pay in 6 monthly instalments of £525 plus VAT
Typically these sessions are held on Zoom, which has the added benefit of being able to record the session for later review.
However, if you are based, or willing to travel, to South East London, I am sometimes able to meet in person. Feel free to ask!
