Hi I’m Lynne and I have been running my own business for a few years now. I come from a corporate background and know how difficult it is to change your mind set from employee to entrepreneur.
I have spent the last 20 years in roles that included training, mentoring, tutoring and assessing. I have trained people in all sorts of things from Maths and English to spreadsheets and IT, in occupational qualifications like management, team leading, business administration and customer service to becoming self employed for the first time. I have also helped people get a website up and running and I have helped them to advertise their goods and services online to the right audience.
For the last 18 months I have been working online learning about marketing using social media, writing blogs, marketing products and services, designing and building websites, affiliate marketing, email marketing and so much more.
I am one of those people who just can’t stop learning. I enjoy it and I enjoy teaching and supporting others and that is why I am one of the most diverse businesses coaches around today. I have helped managers develop problem solving techniques, I have helped garages become more organised through really simple database development, I have helped people register their business online, I have coached them via Skype on mind set and how to focus and set goals as well as a whole host of other things.
I think that business is a scary place. Everyone thinks you know what you are doing and you like to look like you do. But truthfully, most of us are just making it up as we go along. That is fine as long as you are moving in the right direction but most of the time we aren’t. I know I spent a lot of time and money doing things I didn’t need to do when I first started out. I looked around for advice on the internet and fell for every promise I came across. Lesson learned!
I am now very choosy about the people I get advice from. I want to know about them and their background. I want to know that they are genuine and that they can genuinely help me with my problem rather than just droning on about how good they are at something entirely different. I want to know that when I ask a question I will get an honest and helpful answer. I want to know that this person is going to be there for me when I need them and not just take my money and run.
I guess most people are the same and the more practiced a business person you become, the more choosy you will become. You want value for money and you want to be able to see results quickly as time is money. You also want someone who will listen to you and sincerely want to help you to achieve your goals and dreams.
I try to be all of the above. I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I am passionate about helping people, as my 20 years of doing it would testify. I have had some lovely feedback and testimonials from former and current clients and it is this that puts a smile on my face and makes me realise what a fantastic job I have.
If you would like to get to know me a little better then please don’t hesitate to contact me. I coach over Skype so if you are not in the local area don’t worry. You can reach me by any of the methods below.
