I’m Starting A Business and Don’t Know Where To Start

How exciting! I suggest you start by downloading my free guide which walks you through the process I recommend step-by-step.

You’ll also find a wealth of free resources on my blog. They complement this guide and will help you in the planning process. The best place to start is here.

You’ll also find a lot of value in signing up to my newsletter where you’ll be the first to hear about new articles, free guides and Sunday Musings, my weekly Facebook Live show.

How Can I Work With You On My Business?

Thank you so much for asking! I’d love to start a conversation about whether we’re a good fit to work together.

  • Either download my brochure with details of my business consulting and executive coaching services.

  • Or simply e-mail me to arrange a coffee chat wherever suits you best – your office, her office, Hotel du Vin or virtually.

There’s no hard sell. Just solid advice and a straightforward, honest assessment of whether our services would be right for you.

Do You EVER Offer PRO BONO Business Mentoring?

Yes. In addition to my business consulting and executive coaching services, which include mentoring, I work with one charity CEO on a pro bono basis at any one time. The charities I select are involved in delivering one or more of the Global Goals.

If you’re a charity CEO and would like to be personally mentored by me, please e-mail me to get on the waiting list and I’ll be in touch.

Will You Run A Workshop For My Team?

Yes, I’d love to. If you have a team of willing participants, I can come and deliver one of my existing workshops for a fixed fee.  Alternatively if you’d like me to design a bespoke workshop for your team, I’m very happy to discuss possibilities. Please e-mail me to discuss further.

I Love What You Do and I’d Really Love To Pick Your Brains. Can We Schedule A Call?

That’s very kind of you to say so! If you’ve a specific question you’d like help with, e-mail me to book a 60 minute Instant Business Advice session for which there is a fee.

Can I Interview You?

Yes, please! Being interviewed is one of my favourite things to do. I'd love to share my knowledge, advice and experience with your audience if this aligns well with Built To Succeed. If you’d like to interview me, please e-mail me and I’ll be in touch.

May I Book You As A Speaker?

Please check out my Speaking page. My speaking fees start at £500 plus expenses. I don’t normally charge travel expenses for events in London and Sussex.

Can I Write A Guest Post For Your Blog?

Thank you for the offer but I don’t accept unsolicited requests. Should this change, I’ll update this section of the website.

I Love How You Write. Can I USE Your Copy On My Own Website, Brochures Or Blog?

All content on this website, with the exception of guest articles, is copyrighted in my name, and as such, my intellectual property. This includes all resources I’ve created for you to download. If you’re interested in reposting or reprinting one of my articles, please check out my Copyright page first.

I’ve Downloaded Your ‘How To Guides’ Can I Share TheSE With My Team?

Absolutely! I know you’ll understand that the resources I’ve created are the result of years of experience and is therefore a unique and copyrighted product.

What isn’t okay is to recreate my resources and offer these to your own clients, or to re-purpose these for your website. This is because I’ve invested considerable time creating what I hope are really valuable resources, and these are my intellectual property.

Do You Accept Advertising?

No. This website is an advertising-free space.

Do You Use Affiliate Links On Your Website?

Yes, I do, primarily when I’m making book recommendations.

You’ll find a small number of other affiliate links. This means that if you do choose to make a purchase, I’ll earn a small commission which comes at no additional cost to you. I only recommend companies I believe are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you do decide to buy something.

Will You Run An Affiliate Launch For Me?

Probably not. I only promote products and services that I can 100% vouch for and run by people I know well.

Can I Intern For You?

That’s kind of you to offer! I don’t currently have any opportunities for interns but this is something I’m seriously considering. If you’re interested in interning for me, please complete e-mail me with more information and I’ll be in touch.
