RESET REFOCUS RESTART
The pandemic has caused a lot of us to question how we do things – and why we do them. If you run your own small business and want to look ahead with more certainty and confidence I’m here to help.
A lot of things are not in our control but as business owners we’re in a stronger position than many people to make choices, adapt, and make things happen.
There is no right or wrong way to do this. We’re breaking new ground and the only thing we can be sure of is that doing it together is easier than trying to do it alone. I’ve helped hundreds of business owners create the sort of businesses that are enjoyable to run and give them a life that’s worth living and also helped a lot of people get through the toughest days of the pandemic. Would you like me to help you do the same?
“After a number of years working hard but not making much profit we are now steadily growing our business and increasing our profits year on year. Ann has helped us to stay focused. Her input has been invaluable and she not only has great ideas but crucially makes sure we get on with the job. I don’t know where we would be without her.” Ken and Christine Seymour, Directors, KTS Computers Ltd.
Being accountable, doing what’s important not urgent, and not getting distracted are the key things that business owners struggle with and that’s where I come in.
I would like to say a huge thank you for being wonderfully generous with your time, support and advice. I would not still be in business if it wasn’t for you patiently pointing me in the right direction. Rachel Extance – Communications Consultant

The great thing about working with Ann is that she combines the ‘hard’ business aspects of getting the right processes and systems in place in business with the ‘soft’ aspects of how we manage and overcome our internal challenges and listen to what we need personally to help our businesses grow. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who can facilitate both of these quite so skillfully. Ruth Farenga, Founder, Mindful Pathway
Because I work with people who share my values, want to have fun, and explore possibilities, my clients often become friends with each other and work together or support each other. Being part of a wider network is incredibly valuable and powerful and enhances businesses and lives in many ways.
If we approach everything asking ‘what’s best for me?’ we get division. If we approach it asking ‘what’s best for all of us?’ we get a different outcome.
I’ve made a handful of really important decisions for my business and working with Ann as a business mentor has been one of the best. She’s great to work with, with a refreshing no-nonsense approach and huge integrity. This cuts out any time-wasting faff and helps move things on quickly, which is key when you’re learning so much, quickly. Jo Twiselton, Change Management Consultant
