Take A Tour Of My Newly Redesigned Website

My website makeover is live! I cannot tell you how excited and relieved I am to say this. This project has been in the planning for many months as I’ve worked with a graphic designer, photographer and web developer to get the look I wanted.

My Website Makeover is LIVE!

As with any website project, it’s a work in progress. There are still lots of changes to make. But I’d reached that point where I wanted to get my re-brand out into the world. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making final changes. But for now, I’d love you to enjoy exploring the abundance of resources I’ve created for you.

Without further ado, I’m delighted to walk you around the new website for Built to Succeed. Would you like a tour?


Your Business Questions Welcomed

I’m hosting my first free weekly Facebook Live Show on Wednesday, 20th September at 7:00 pm GMT. To kick off the show off, I’ll be talking about my own business journey and some of the mistakes I made along the way. And more importantly how you can avoid these.

Then I’ll throw the floor open to you. I want to hear your questions. What would you like answered? Can’t make it but have a burning question? Either ask me in the comments box below, or message me via my Facebook page. I’ll pick a selection for the evening.


Lessons From My Early Days In Business

In my last article, I explained how I left a successful corporate career as a CEO and mustered up the courage to become self-employed. My original business dream was to open a yoga studio, and scale from there.

he Story Of How I Started My Business (Part 2)

But I struggled to find suitable premises and realised my ‘yoga studio dream’ wasn’t viable without third party investment. I considered a range of other business ideas before settling on business consulting and coaching. I tested and validated my initial ideas, took a life changing trip to India which reminded me of my brand values, and opened my business consulting and coaching practice for business in January 2014.


From Chief Executive To Kitchen Table Start-up

I’m back from the beach, and raring to getting writing my blog again! Over the summer, I read scores of stories about (mainly female) entrepreneurs who’ve started their business from the kitchen table, and overcome the challenges we all face, to set up successful businesses on their terms.

Q&A: The Story Of How I Started My Business

I read these stories because in October, I’m launching a podcast show, in which I’ll be interviewing business friends. But I also wanted to uncover new stories of how budding entrepreneurs have turned their pipe dream into a thriving start-up and going concern. My hope is that by sharing these stories, this will inspire you during those moments of doubt when we wonder ‘will it happen?’ and help you believe in your ability to ‘make it happen.’


Why I'm Taking A Sabbatical, And You Should Too

When I first started my business, I promised myself I’d take a month long sabbatical every August. Whilst I’m not heading to Bali this year, I am clocking off and clocking out until September. At least from my blog.

Gone to the Beach

This year has been pretty amazing so far and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my writing. Another of my wishes when I started my business was to have time to write about business and leadership. I’m very lucky to have a business that allows me to do just this. And I’m lucky to be able to choose the work I take on, the incredibly talented people I work with and the direction I want to take my business.


Can I share something that I haven’t discussed publicly before? I am seriously concerned about the number of people who would have you believe that email marketing is the holy grail of business success. It’s not. And it’s time to stop the email marketing madness!

IS EMAIL MARKETING ALL IT's CRACKED UP TO BE?You can’t log online nowadays without being nearly assaulted with ad after ad of “coaches” and “consultants” telling you how to get your first 1,000 email subscribers. Now it’s so easy to get online and sell stuff, everyone is online and selling stuff. Create a ‘compelling lead magnet.’ Spend a few quid on Facebook ads, despite their low conversion rate, and you’re on your way to online success.

Just because something is a trend doesn’t mean it’s effective or you should do it.
