Small business coaching to grow your business with confidence

You started your business to escape the rat race. To have freedom, passion and the flexibility to work around your family, but that’s just not happening.

Working from home, it’s easy to lose focus and get distracted by chores. 

 The week whizzes by and somehow you’ve forgotten to work on your business – networking events, business planning, tracking your finances or creating more leads.

You need to boost your marketing but you’re not sure what’s right for your business, or even what to write.

Sales calls are being put off and you’re not following leads because you’re scared of what people will think.

You’ve lost momentum and feel like your business is doing ok, but drifting without direction.

But you’re passionate about your work and are totally ready to make a step change in your business, with a new energy for growth and a personal route map for success.

And you don’t have to do it alone.

Working for yourself, often alone at the start, can be isolating. It can be hard to be objective about your business when it’s all on your plate and you’d don’t have a team to brainstorm with.

As a business coach, my small business clients say that they really value having me as a ‘virtual partner’ to help develop their business and creative ideas as well as the space to define their goals and priorities. I can show you ways to increase your motivation and make your small business a success.

Investing in a business coach will give you confidence, clarity and direction. www.LucyStanyerLifeCoach.com

Accountability and support

I will be on your team, a critical friend and give you support as you push your comfort zone, take planned risks and create content to make yourself more visible. 

You’ll get my cheerleading support, an impartial view on your business and someone to hold your feet to the fire to get stuff done to reach your goals and targets.

When you’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed with information, advice, ideas and admin, my ‘whole-person’ business coaching will give you the time and space to work on your business, professional and personal development.

Business goals and growth

Coaching will help you get clarity about what you want your business to do and to discover a new direction. Rather than measure yourself against others, I’ll help you to define what success means to you.

I will give you support and inspiration to set your big business vision with goals to achieve regular clients, referrals and income. Then help you create a bespoke, cohesive plan with achievable targets, quick wins and longer term goals.

Through this process you will become more decisive and feel confident about making decisions about what systems, staff or marketing to invest in to grow your business.

Pricing and money

Believe you can and you're halfway there - www.lucystanyerlifecoach.com - Business Coach, Career Change Coach, Life CoachAn icky topic for some people and so many business owners don’t have their financial building blocks in place. So if you don’t know your numbers – from expenses and forecast income to household budget and your mailing list – then we’ll get your benchmarks sorted, set exciting new financial targets and system to track your progress.

Plus if you’re putting off raising your prices because you’re scared of being laughed at or people thinking you’re a fraud, then we can unpick those mental blocks that keep you from charging what you’re worth.

Productivity and work-life balance

I will share with you techniques to get focused, get the most out of your time and balance competing business activities – while making sure you stay true to your business and personal values.

We can explore your work-life balance and make sure that you have a realistic set of home and business goals that work together to create more ‘me time’ and family time.

Along with new structures and systems to make you feel like you’re on top of things, you’ll also work out how and when to delegate and outsource business tasks to focus on what you do best.

Marketing and creative content

If you don’t know where to start with your blog, newsletter or social media or what to write, we can brainstorm creative ideas, promotions and hooks to build an inspiring content plan to find your authentic voice.

I can help you work out which marketing activities to invest in to increase your reach and income by getting in front of new ideal customers.

And to really bring your business to life, we will look at how you can ask for feedback, testimonials and referrals from your current customers to use in your marketing and to show potential customers just how fab your products and services are.

Confidence and mindset

I know that you want that feeling of success, of being on top of things and confidence plays a massive part in that.

Fear and anxiety can really hold you back. If you put off asking for business, for referrals, for testimonials or feedback or you’re scared of putting yourself out there in your marketing and on your blog, then we will work on ways to stretch your comfort zone so that you feel like you’re winning.

Balancing your personal and professional values is vital for business success. I will share with you ideas for courses, books, blogs and audio to inspire your personal and professional development and give you greater confidence and business va va voom.

What my clients say

“A fabulous experience.  Business coaching with you was a bit like working with a sensible big sister (without the arguments!).  You set me – often challenging – tasks and I committed to getting the job done.  It was helpful to have an impartial input into my business, which made me look at things afresh.” Julie Davies, Owner and Teacher, Julie Davies Flower Workshops, Faversham, Kent

“Having you as a professional sounding board was great. It can be lonely and tough making decisions on your own, but having you enabled me to get them out of my head into breathe life into them. It’s a good way to really test your ideas before they become reality.” Michelle Gyimah, Owner of Equality Pays, Manchester

[Coaching] has had a big impact on helping me to decide the shape of my future. I needed to gain clarity about what I was doing and what I was aiming to achieve, and Lucy helped me to sift through all my different projects and see which one was worth focusing on. She also encouraged me to write a business plan, which has already made me think much more clearly. She has given me lots of tips about a) how to be business minded, b) what courses I might choose to go on in the future to develop my skills.Amy Howard, Owner, Honker Tonkers, Whitstable, Kent
