A business starts with an idea. A seed of a proposition, based upon a need. Add an amount of persistence, some knowledge, understanding, a few slices of common sense and a large helping of ‘timing’; we now have potential. Aspiring to bring this to market efficiently, timely, effectively and realistically is my sweet spot.
I worked hard at school, I even studied a few degrees, after which I immediately entered the working world. I knew nothing to be fair, but I had a passion to learn and develop my career. I didn’t know why, I just felt I should. My decision to join the corporate world, I later came to realise, was the best and the worst decision I have ever made. A decade and a half of working for others across a range of business focused roles has indeed brought vast amounts of pragmatic acumen, but were the sacrifices worth it all?
I wasn’t unfulfilled by my jobs, or even particularly good or bad at delivering against my objectives at the time; more that my learning was slowing down and I felt I needed to do more than hold down another new job role.
Since leaving the world of being somebody’s ‘employee’ my successes in running my own companies and polishing my skills have enabled me to embrace life. The journey has (and continues) to be nervous, fun, boring, intriguing, difficult and often exciting.
I now manage my greatest resource effectively and with purpose, myself.
Working with some of the best companies, not just in the Uk but in the world; not only as my employer but now also as my clients has meant I have been mentored by some outstandingly talented people and held roles which have had significance; not just to my employer but also often to the wider business community. The resultant impact on my life has been so significant that I now aspire to help others realise their potential.
Working with you as an individual, seeing your perspective is the key to empathy. Understanding breeds empathy, from which a constructive and supportive consultancy relationship can be built to thrive.
Unique business is much more than a company, a project or a vehicle of simple commerce.
Unique Business is a lifestyle, an attitude, a belief and a reality. Unique business is the knowledge that you can become what you wish to be, succeed in your pursuing your goals and ambitions, in making that product, proposition or lifestyle change to empower your life through focusing on your vision and aspiration; whether this is in a role or as an entrepreneur; get there.
