The way Scott can articulate a wealth of real-life experience in business and pass that knowledge on to another is a skill that is hard to find in the Business Coaching world.

Realise the value in your business

You don't have to spend every day dealing with the same problems.

Is your business ready for the "next level" but you're not sure how to take the next step?  Or are you finding yourself working flat out while the business stands still? Let me help you solve those problems that are getting in your way.

You may have enjoyed the sense of achievement as you were establishing your business and getting it up and running, but now that you're out of the "startup" phase milestones tend to pass more slowly. Like setting sail on an ocean voyage, the first day is full of action and achievements (casting off, negotiating the harbour, seeing the land disappear over the horizon), but once you're out at sea there are few (if any) indications of your progress. If your business is "out at sea" you need to take time to set your goals and monitor your progress to ensure you are plotting the best course towards success.


Every weekend you decide that this week is going to be different, and then Monday happens...

Don't let everyday issues stop you working on your business

Anyone in business knows that there is always another problem to solve. It's easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day issues and difficult to see how to make time to work "on" the business. You know what needs to be done, but you don't have the time to do it. What you need is someone to sort out those day-to-day issues (IT, HR, IR, Finance, Contracts, etc) so you can spend time implementing the changes you know you need.

I'm not an accountant or a solicitor. I'm someone who has run my own businesses and worked in other businesses. I have successfully resolved issues in Human Resources, Industrial Relations, Information Systems, Finance negotiations, Supply agreements, Purchasing and selling businesses. I understand the needs of small and medium business and their owners. But most importantly I know how to get things done.
