The Founders – There is a lot more about us here:
This is what we look like:
In short we have almost 30 years’ experience each to bring to your business and have made all the mistakes and fallen flat on many occasions – we can show you how to minimise your risks and how focus will bring you results far faster than running around trying to do everything. More than that we support you every step of the way and help you build a better business to bring in income. Whether it’s another £1K per month you are after in your business or a master plan for world domination and £millions each year we can help you build and grow your business. We work with professional service business owners who want to grow their businesses and use the same methods we have used in our own businesses (legal services to 1999 and consulting and training since then). We have been there, fallen on our faces and picked ourselves up to both survive and thrive – we know what it takes and needs to earn in a business.

It’s about the people – only about the people
We focus on the humans running online business and what triggers your audience will respond to best. No matter how you sell, B2B or B2C you are selling to people and that’s the core of how we work. We show you how to attract clients to you and know how serving up the right content, at the right time and in the right place, matters more than anything else you do online, if you want to be seen. It’s all about personality, branding and creating a big splash as a small business if you want to get noticed. You have to be outstanding if you want to succeed and that’s where we can help most. We help you build a strong online brand that delivers results time and time again. Behavioural marketing is fundamental to using online means to reach your clients so show you how your potential clients will react to your messaging.

A Unique Blend and Approach
We are to the point, kind and fearless and that is what you get working with us. We don’t enable sloppy thinking or crackpot plans but we are very good at taking a basket of jumbled up stuff from a chat with you and showing you the jewels you cannot currently see. After all our years of working in the law and running our own business there is nothing you can tell us that will shock or faze us and our clients find that helps when working with us. Non judgemental and kind but sharp and direct – do you need a bit of this for your business? Get in touch. Most people feel better and reassured after talking to us and find it helpful – would that help you? We work with professionals who shine, and are prepared to rise above the grey image associated with many professionals, if that is you, then you are in the right place. Get in touch and let’s see what we can do.
We Do This
We cut away all the hype, ‘must have’s’ and ‘must do stuff” where you end up chasing hundreds of things so you focus just on one or two things that work well for your business.
Many business owners believe being busy is better, that’s nothing but a delusion, what matters most is focused productivity and that’s a very different animal. That’s the one we like the best. We focus on productivity and help you scale your business whether it’s just you or a small team. We have helped tiny teams turnover £millions by working smarter. We cut to the core of what is needed.
