Julie Davies, owner of Julie Davies Flower Workshops, has grown her business, increased her business confidence and reported an amazing 400% increase in pre-tax profits since starting business coaching with me last year. Blooming marvellous!
As this is International Coaching Week I wanted to demonstrate the positive impact that coaching – in this case small business coaching – can have.
Julie is passionate about flowers and is really creative. She runs workshops across Kent to give people the skills and confidence to arrange flowers for their home, business or for a special occasion.
She has taught flower workshops in a variety of distinctive “pop up” locations including Macknade Fine Foods, Posillipo Ristorante Italiano in Faversham and many other locations in Kent. One to one sessions, DIY wedding workshops and host-at-home flower workshops are her speciality. She also teaches Floristry at Kent Adult Education centres.
Julie invested in business coaching to help her make some key decisions about how to grow her business. We explored her different workshop options, examined her prices, finances and forecasting and set a new business and marketing plan in motion that has resulted in a 400% increase in pre-tax profit so far!
Julie is currently working on her next phase of business planning (you can read about that in her blog) and is creating a new way of sharing and teaching her floristry skills to expand the scope of her business. Julie commented: “Working with [Lucy] has given me the confidence to commit to my business goals and follow a path towards achieving those goals.”
“Lucy has been instrumental in guiding me through the writing a coherent business plan, and working on scripts to follow up leads with potential clients”, Julie continued. “She strikes the right balance between supporting me (and coming up with some fab ideas to move my business on) and set me more challenging issues to deal with.”
“With Lucy on “my team” I’ve been able to take my business, with confidence, to the next level. If you’ve never worked with a business coach I’d highly recommend Lucy.”
You can read more about Julie’s coaching experience on my new page called ‘What my clients say‘, where I am able to share the positive feedback and experiences that people have had through my coaching to give others the confidence to invest in coaching to move their business, work or life forward.
