Create a small business that’s both profitable and fun
Most people start their own business to have more control over how they work. They want more time to spend on the things that are important to them with a steady income that supports a good lifestyle.
This is what I help my clients to do.
Choosing to stay small doesn’t mean you’re unambitious or unsuccessful. Six million people in the UK work for themselves – and with the right approach it can be enjoyable and profitable.
You decide on the lifestyle you want and I’ll help you achieve it.
“After a number of years working hard but not making much money we are now steadily growing our income and taking more time off. Ann has helped us to stay focused. Her input has been invaluable and she not only has great ideas but crucially makes sure we do what’s important and not just what’s urgent. I don’t know where we would be without her.” Ken and Christine Seymour, 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

“Ann really gets what makes businesses work, and she understands how to support business owners to move their businesses forward, pushing them when needed while providing enough support that they feel safe to step forward. Don’t just take my word for it. Have a conversation with Ann, it could change everything!” Nathan Whitbread, The Neurodivergent Coach
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 to support each other. Being part of a wider network is incredibly valuable and powerful and enhances businesses and lives in many ways.
“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, so quickly.” Jo Twiselton, Change Management Consultant
