I started working with Stuart in January 2017, I was a bit sceptical to start with as I had read a bit about business coach’s and was unsure of what to expect.
My main reason for working with Stuart was because I had lost interest, drive, ambition and was on the way to wanting out of my business, I had started the business 13 years ago and in the last five years had seen massive growth but had seen the business plateau in the last 12 months, I was concerned that our costs were increasing but our profit was starting to dwindle.
The first couple of meetings with Stuart I noticed I was getting some interest back but I was still doubting whether I was doing the right thing, anyway as time went on I did all the tasks Stuart told me to do and I started to notice subtle but very interesting changes, I invested in HR, I invested in Marketing, I invested in new vehicles, all the things that I would have never done on my own.
We are 8 months down the line now and I have for the first time a very clear understanding of my business, where I would like my business to go, our figures say it all, to date we are 21.8% increase on our growth to this period last year, my staff now have clear focus, I complete all my work and manage to take time for myself.
Stuart has opened my eyes to the fact that everything I was going through is the same as all other businesses, I no longer worry about what I could have done, I now concentrate on the next idea or project.
From a sceptical start in January to a solid growth plan and structure in September. That is one thing I can thank Stuart for and I am looking forward to the next part of the journey.
Many thanks Stuart for your help and advice
