Mentoring

Most entrepreneurs start their journey as single founders or maybe with a partner, it can be a very isolated and lonely place, but doesn’t have to be.  I believe to maximise chances of success you should network, collaborate, make friends with like-minded inspirational or impressive people.

Along my journey I can recall many a time where I would have given anything to meet someone like I am now; you see I have felt the pain, the confusion, the lack of direction, doubting yourself, your product, your brand, the physical and mental drain;  but I’m here to say that I have in abundance fire in my belly to help you, I understand and get it, and I promise you I can support you, clear the confusion, ease the pain and help you win, follow your passion and achieve your dream.

Strategic Planning

Your kind words...

I contacted Claire when I had reached a point with my business where I need to adapt to a new challenge and make key decisions to enable me to achieve my goals. I was completely overwhelmed and out of my comfort zone despite having been successfully awarded a new opportunity. Claire’s calm, warm and efficient approach was just what I need to focus on my new priorities and whilst still delivering on my current remit. She has an eye for strategic planning and a great way of breaking the process into ‘bite size’ pieces to take away the overwhelm. I enjoyed the first session and would recommend anyone needing a business coach to invest in themselves and work with Claire.
