As The Micro Business Mentor I work with clients to ensure their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their business is as good as it can be, one most certainly impacts the other. This is why in early 2022, having realised what an effect the global pandemic had had on so many micro business owners, I founded The Micro Business Mentor Club. In addition to this, I work on funded business support programmes to add value to the delivery process, from strategic development of those programmes to face to face delivery.
Third generation self-employed, I have been running micro businesses in different sectors, including hospitality, property lettings and management, property development and retail for over 30 years and am a leading voice for micro business in the UK.
I know a thing or two about how the smallest of businesses tick and share my knowledge and expertise not only with clients but with press and media when called upon and as a speaker at events. Alongside that I give my time to charities and good causes sharing my wealth of knowledge in the creation and development of positive legacy funds.
Helping micro business owners to develop, flourish and enhance both themselves and their business is a key focus of my day to day life. Community engagement and collaboration are two more areas I have great strength in. Linking all these together helps create stronger and more effective people, businesses and places. Always keen to make a difference through positive action, I co-founded #MicroBizMatters Day and the #MicroBizMatters Movement with Tony Robinson OBE. For 10 years Tony and I were on a constant mission to make life in micro business better, hosting the only annual day of recognition, action and learning for those that employ 0 to 9 and turnover less than 2 million annually in January every year. On the 10th Anniversary of our work, in January 2022, Tony and I retired from #MicroBizMatters activities to focus on other aspects of our work life blend.
A constant connector, I thrive on bringing people and organisations together to make a difference. If you feel my knowledge and experience would help your business or you do not hesitate to get in touch.
