Why I'm happy to be called 'The Bossy One'!

Why I'm happy to be called 'The Bossy One'!

"Be prepared to be pushed and organised - it's probably exactly what you need!"

That was the closing comment in a testimonial from one of my lovely clients, Steve Hinton of Hinton Sheerline. He's right of course, I was always called 'the bossy one' at school. I'm sure I got right up the teachers' noses at times (someone had to!) but really I'm just one of life's 'doers'.

How about you. Are you frustrated with the lack of progress in your business? Perhaps you're conscious that some things could be done so much better but never get the chance to sort them out? Or maybe you know exactly what needs to be done but you're just not a 'completer-finisher' so you're bogged down with unfinished projects, thoughts and ideas?

Here's what Steve had to say:

"Claire and her team have been working with me since early 2012.  They are a pleasure to work with and provide structure, capacity and expertise to help me run and develop my business.

Claire has a very organised approach to every aspect of her service and it is a pleasure to work with her to develop our marketing and business development processes. She knows a great deal about social media, IT and business development and it is great the way she keeps me on track with everything that needs to be done.

When I set up my business I was wasting a lot of time on things I ought to have been delegating, but it was that need to focus on getting more customers that initially led me to think about getting some help.

The turning point was the realisation that Claire could help me with all sorts of aspects of the business. One thing she's really good at is asking apparently simple questions to say 'why are we doing this', and 'what's the next stage on this', and 'which customers should we be targeting' - she's really helping me grow the business and is adding lots of value.

It's like having a partner in my business, which gives me the capacity and expertise I need to call on - without having to employ staff or worry about having an office - it's a brilliantly unique service, it's fantastic!

I would unhesitatingly recommend Claire to anyone looking to grow their business - but be prepared to be pushed and organised - which is probably exactly what you need!"

So, do YOU want to take back control of your time AND make a significant difference to your business? Give me a call and let's have a chat about how I can help.
