If you’re a small or medium business owner or entrepreneur struggling with business blues, you’re not alone.
Running a business isn’t easy.
You’re driving your business with dedication and long (long) hours. Still, your company is treading water in a sea of to-do lists, team challenges and the endless quest to getting business versus doing business.
And no matter how much time you schedule to work on the business, it’s almost impossible to objectively see what needs prioritising–let alone make the strategic changes that’ll see returns.
You need a business coach who can take their laser sharp focus and pinpoint small changes that’ll get the big results you’re looking for.
A coach who’ll help you find bigger opportunities then support you in moving forward.

Nothing makes me more proud than seeing my clients succeed
He helped us achieve > 250% growth in revenue and a healthier profit margin
Mark is a great business coach, counsellor and sounding board for any business leader. We worked closely with Mark for 3 years, during which he helped us achieve > 250% growth in revenue plus a much healthier profit margin. We honestly couldn't have achieved what we have without his help and guidance. For any developing leader–I couldn't recommend Mark strongly enough.
With Mark–you’re in it together!
I recommend coaching with Mark for people who don't have a group of partners or a large network of business people around them. Especially for people who don't come from a business background or for those who come from a more technical or artistic base. He’s great for when you really need someone who knows what they're talking about and has different perspectives across a vast array of industries. When key decisions need to be made, having someone there who knows your business intimately, definitely adds massive value.
I only have to go to work one day per week
Before I couldn’t imagine getting out of the office for an hour, now I can seriously say I only have to go to work one day per week.
I’m now working less hours, I’m less stressed and we’re making much more money!
Our business was going well without Mark. However, since working with him we have massively increased productivity and profitability at the same time. Working with Mark as our coach, I’m really developing as a business person in leadership and management as well as improving and growing our business. So I can see both the self-improvement in myself along with the positive changes in our business.
In just 18 months our turnover and margins are up
The results are just incredible. Turnover is up, margins are up, staff are clearer in their job descriptions, advertising results are better and we’re now spending less money on marketing. In the past, there were a lot of things that we wanted to get done in our business. However, we never got most of these done. By using Mark they not only got done, they also improved our results dramatically. He has my highest recommendation.
Mark’s an expert in his field
One of Mark’s favourite sayings is ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’. We started coaching on a three month trial, no obligations, and we never looked back. I think we're good at our business, we’re good in our technical fields, but you can’t expect to be an expert at everything. Mark’s an expert in his field.
Having a coach changed my thinking about running our business and managing staff!
I wasn't sure what kind of coaching approach Mark was going to have, but I thought I'd try it and see how it evolved. We'd been in the business for eight or nine years before reaching out to Mark. Since I engaged his services Mark has been an integral part of our growth and his guidance has been invaluable. You have a confidant, a critic and a sounding board.
I didn't know how to grow the business. I just knew I wanted to
Before working with Mark, I really didn't understand how it was possible to grow into a big business. I was sitting there with a few trucks and a few guys, and I'm working 18 hours a day, and I couldn't see it. I'd ask myself, 'How could I ever possibly have a hundred staff? There are not enough hours in the day'.
The longevity of the relationship is testament to his coaching methodology and his solid, unflappable character
Since 2008 Mark has been counsel to our business and team members. During our time together, our business has expanded dramatically in every sense, especially getting the best out of myself and our people.
His coaching makes me feel like I can take on the whole world!
You know what I love about working with Mark? Every time I get off the coaching call with him I feel like I can literally take on the whole world!
