Tutoring business had best growth period ever with coaching
Deborah Toulson,Owner of the Kip McGrath tutoring franchise in Salisbury, Wiltshire, was feeling overwhelmed with 'wearing all the hats' in her business and needed support to get clarity on her business direction.
Deborah decided to invest in my small business coaching programme to get a clear business plan in place for 2016/2017, to develop a strategy for communicating better with parents and potential customers – and to make changes to achieve a better work-life balance.
She said: “I am just a different business owner from two years ago when I first begun working with Lucy. I have really achieved so much more than I ever thought possible.
"My business has had it’s best growth period since I started 13 years ago! Her support and guidance has been the best.”
Deborah initially signed up for a 12 month business coaching programme and we kicked the year off with a two hour face-to-face in-depth planning session. In this sessions we really got under the skin of where her business was at, what she wanted from a better work-life balance and a brilliant brainstorm to tease out all the options for the business and her marketing moving forward.
This formed a solid basis for the whole coaching process. And with Deborah's new vision and hard work, the basis for her best growth period ever.
“Lucy really got the grasp of my business. She helped me structure a business plan and way forward in so many areas in 2016/7", she continued. "Lucy also lead a superb planning session at the beginning."
“I have realised that I can achieve a lot without so much stress if I just pace myself. I’m definitely less stressed and more relaxed about my current business - and my new business, Maths Tutor Online."
Deborah booked an initial free discovery call with me to learn about how the coaching would work and for us to see if we clicked.
“Lucy is a great listener. She brings a new perspective on issues and make super suggestions that are achievable.
“I want to say a massive thank you to her for being a super mentor.”
