I went along to my first GrowthCLUB session not really knowing what to expect but hoping I would come away with something. We spent the day working on a 90 day plan and discussed how I might go about achieving these things within that timeframe. It might sound cliche but something definitely ‘just clicked’ during that session.I felt that I had a direction that I wanted to move in and felt incredibly determined to make it happen. The session helped me to take a step back and analyse my business and my role within the business. I’m now busy ticking off the goals I set in my 90 day plan, it gives you a massive buzz and sense of achievement too. I can’t wait for my next session!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have been working with Julie for about a year, during which time we have focused on reducing my working hours and increasing profit. The coaching has paid for itself and I work less – which is what I hoped to achieve when we started out. We’ve also gained 2 additional staff, with increased turnover and profit.
Having a coach forces me to focus on what I want the company to look like, and then the best way to make that happen.
Thanks very much for our first business coaching session the other day. I found it interesting, nicely challenging, and a bit emotional if I am honest. You have given me food for thought and helped me to really look at my goals, which I know I have been struggling with on my own. Thanks for your support and I am really looking forward to our next meeting.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Julie has very quickly brought our business into focus. I can now see a clear distinction between working ‘in’ our business and ‘on’ our business and this has really helped me make decisions that benefit our long-term ambitions . We are still at an early stage of working together but I’m already much more confident in what I can aim for, knowing that I have Julie’s knowledge and watchful eye to support us.
Having not studied business, it’s been great to get clear, insightful strategies to create a strong foundation for the business to grow. Without it, I’d still be taking very small, tentative steps and focussing on the bits of the business I like to do, at the expense of the bits necessary to build a solid business that is capable of growing.
