“When I attended one of Paula’s business planning workshops, I did so to try and gain clarity & direction on what I really wanted to achieve with my business. I got so much out of that day that I signed up to work with Paula 1 to 1. Working with her has literally changed my life. I went from juggling two businesses, family life with two kids and an lifestyle that didn’t help my health to one business, a healthy lifestyle and a happy family. Thank you Paula!”

“I have too many fabulous things to say and it 100% won't fit in this small box, but I will have a good go! Paula is flipping superb! She has stuck with us through thick and thin and is one of our most dedicated cheerleaders. We treat Paula like the fount of all knowledge and there's a very good reason for this, because she is! She is prepared to be honest and give us the feedback we need in order to succeed, even if we don't always love it 🙂 Paula is WAY more than a business coach, she is a mentor, a friend, a supporter and someone who consistently goes above and beyond, who doesn't want all of that rolled into one! Paula will change your business and your life in the process. Don't waste another minute, get in touch with Paula now! ”

“So....Paula helped me take control of my business, my sanity and myself and has achieved the impossible. Coaching the uncoachable. I'd already sacked one business coach when I asked Paula if she could help me. To say it's changed everything is an understatement. I 'thought' I was doing OK doing my own thing, setting my own goals and holding myself accountable. Incorrect. Paula has helped me and my chaotic entrepreneurial brain through the worst and the best times in my business. If only I had discovered her sooner. Please don't hire her. I want to keep her all to myself. Only joking. You'd be mad not to. ”

“Working with Paula gave me the time and space to think about my own business rather than everyone else's. She asked some tough questions which have helped me to turn my business around and back on the track it should be on. She also helped me to reset some of the expectations I place on myself, which were unrealistic and unhelpful. I would definitely recommend her as a mentor and business coach. ”

“I started working with Paula in June, and she immediately spotted the weak spots in my business. To my surprise... It was me. See I have a bit of a squirrel brain, lots of ideas and not enough time to do it. I love to learn new things, test and try them, which means that I often lose track and get overwhelmed by my projects. Paula has helped me focus on the products that bring me most joy and that serve my clients the best. I am less overwhelmed by goals with no meaning, projects that are a just a distraction and I am now consumed in building the right business for me and my future. And, the best part is, my brain hurts less as a result. ”

“I have been working with Paula since the end of 2017. I find the clarity offered by an outside pair of eyes and the accountability offered by Paula to be incredibly powerful. What I didn't expect was how uncomfortable developing my business would feel for me. Happily because of the dynamic Paula and I have, I have been able to be completely honest about this, and thankfully I am normal (or at least in this regard). I am sure if had tried to grow my business without Paula on my team I would have felt discouraged, and maybe I would already be settling for good results and not pushing for great results. ”

“Paula is ace. Her no nonsense approach to business helped me to put systems in place that improved the way my business worked and flowed. She always came up with new ideas, things that I hadn’t thought of myself but that were so obvious to someone with Paula’s experience and knowledge. If you are looking for a business coach that will get you moving then I highly recommend you work with Paula.”

“Paula came into my life when I most needed her ! Fate works in mysterious ways. As a business coach myself it is often hard to take one's own advise. She helped me structure my approach to the various income streams that I have . The time I worked with Paula was very enjoyable, she became a good friend as well as an excellent business coach. Well worth the investment. I have really reduced the stress I had in my life become much more effective with the use of my time and dropped projects that were offering me no value both in terms of personal development and profit. I would highly recommend people have just one conversation with Paula as they will see she truly walks the talk. She motivates you to succeed and leaves you with a clear plan to follow for the future. ”

“Paula came into our company and instantly recognised where the gaps were. She gained an understanding of our business very quickly and inspired confidence in all our team. She was instrumental in implementing fantastic systems of work which streamlined our operation and ensured we were getting the best from the team. Furthermore, she introduced us to many other clients who were in the same position as us, which is always reassuring. In short, she brought Professionalism, Confidence and Energy to everyone in the company from the Managing Director through to the freelance staff. Great value for money, I would recommend Paula to any business, no matter how large or small”

“Overused it may be, but the word 'inspirational' precisely describes Paula's influence at a difficult time for my small business. I first encountered her in 2011 at the North West Women's Enterprise Day, during which she delivered such a motivational, energy packed gallop through a succession of brilliant business tips that I knew I wanted more. So began an invaluable business relationship over the next three years with a natural-born coach and superb networker who has an infectious passion for business. Generous with her time and irrepressibly positive, Paula draws on evidence based techniques patiently but oh so firmly to challenge and change the negative perceptions that corrode self belief and sabotage success. Crucially for me, she is also sufficiently experienced, skilled and flexible to depart from the script where necessary and adapt to suit the changing needs of her clients. Paula's wise counsel and willingness to go the extra mile helped me to break through the bleakest of times to reveal the hope beyond. And you can't say fairer than that."

"I have worked with Paula for 18 months & she has helped my business from me in my guest bedroom to now having 3 staff and a full order book. Paula's mix no 'fluff' thinking and action coach's systems have helped me stand out in one of the most competitive, price focused industry's out there, Thanks"

"Paula's recently done some 1 to 1 coaching with me and has been absolutely excellent. She's understood my business and circumstances and has immediately hit the right balance of challenging me, reassuring me and offering advice to overcome the issues we've discussed. Real value delivered - thank you."

"I've reaped the benefit of Paula's coaching on many occasions. Paula really stands out amongst other coaches with the depth of her business knowledge and her coaching expertise. She is also very personable making a session with her both fun and highly effective. I can't recommend her highly enough."
