With years of experience in my own business, I know the strategies for business success. I worked incredibly hard to take my brand from a single location, and turn it into a national network of fourteen retail stores. With experience in businesses, spanning across manufacturing, importing, distribution and retail, I have a rare combination of skills and experiences that allow me to transform businesses.
I have a knack for establishing strong processes and operating systems, along with targeted training and marketing plans. However, the thing that sets me apart is my unwavering passion for being the best in the business.
Think Clearer, Perform Better
I have 35 years of business skills and experience spanning across the retail, wholesale, franchising, and manufacturing industries which I use to contribute to the growth and success of my clients.
Every business owner needs to have both a drive and a passion for running their business as well as a clear vision of their goals. In my experience, it’s a challenge for business owners to have both. When starting out in business the passion is well and truly there, you wouldn’t be going into business if it wasn’t! As people who’ve been in business for a long time know, this passion will 0nly last over the years if you have complete control over everything that’s going on around you.
I love seeing business owners keep or rediscover that passion by giving them clarity on where they want to go in their business and how they’re going to get there through setting effective goals. It’s no secret that people work better with a clear goal in mind, and for me, it’s about finding out what those goals are for you and helping you work towards them to grow your business and start enjoying life again.
I’m a keen cyclist and also love motor racing, fishing, and travel, if there’s adrenaline involved, I’m a fan! My passion for racing road and mountain bikes led me to the industry, I ran Bicycle Superstore from 1989 to 2013 and grew the business to 14 stores with $13.8 million turnover.
