Realising your potential

The main thing that motivates me is helping my clients realise their true potential. And I use the word “realise” in both of its meanings. To become aware of, and to bring into reality. My Core Process is “Encouraging Potential”.  For me, that’s about giving you the courage (en-couraging you) to own up to the…

Creating an Avatar for Your Perfect Client

The first step to getting to work with the sort of clients you really love working with is to understand exactly who they are.  I see a lot of individual business owners who start off by taking whatever work is on offer, regardless of what kind of client they are. That’s fine, but when you…

Be yourself; everyone else is taken

It’s becoming fairly normal for people to call me weird.  Most of the time, I think they mean it in a good way.  I certainly choose to take it as a compliment. I don’t really mind whether they mean “weird” in its modern sense of a little bit odd, or its older meaning of having…

Awareness over marketing

When someone gets started in business, it’s natural to go straight to promoting what you can offer people. After all, business is all about getting – and serving – customers, isn’t it? Well, that’s the conventional view. But I think that rushing too quickly to start marketing, before you know what’s really special about what…

Instinctive or Intuitive?

I quite often hear people talking about following their instinct when they clearly mean following their intuition; and saying they followed their intuition when they really mean they acted on instinct.  People often confuse them, but they are two very different things, and they both play an important part in how we get our genius…

Stop looking for answers!

In my world of personal development and business coaching, there are an incredible number of people who claim to have ‘the answer’, even ‘the secret’.  I’ll be honest, for a while I thought I had hit upon at least one of the secrets to being successful. But then ‘the downturn’ arrived, and everything changed, so…

Getting the life you desire

There’s this perception in the personal development and wealth coaching worlds that the only way to pursue your Joyful Genius, or to get the lifestyle you desire, is to jack it all in and work for yourself.  In reality, that’s RUBBISH! Nothing could be further from the truth; the idea that we are all frustrated…
