Small Business Mentor
We have over 35 years experience in retail between us covering operations, merchandising, marketing, visual merchandising, trade planning, store management and leadership development.
We love sharing knowledge with small business owners who don't have the resources or time to invest in big training programmes or the latest systems.
We use our practical, no nonsense approach to understand what a business owner needs and develop a package that works for them. As with our coaching, we don't just help with a plan and then say goodbye - we can be there right the way through to delivery on the shop floor.
This is why we don't call ourselves business coaches - what we do is different, so get in touch to see if we can help your business to grow!
Please contact us to discuss what we can do to help you

I cannot thank Sarah enough for her help and support. Look at the date of this review and you will see that its being written on the 3rd day of 'lockdown'.
Last week was one of my lowest point in years (and I consider myself and extremely positive person) and was considering postponing an appointment with Sarah that I'd had booked for quite a while as I felt it probably wasn't relevant to try and focus on my business with such an ever changing situation. BUT I didn't and what a good choice I made! Not only did we work through and create some plans that were long overdue, but she gave me my positivity back and that is FAR more important for my health and wellbeing. Thank you Sarah, I will do my homework and I am looking forward to the next few months - despite all that is going on over this crazy few weeks! See you on the other side!
"I would recommend Sarah in a heartbeat! Sarah has a knack for identifying mindblocks in a really supportive way, and then working with you to on a plan to overcome them.
To find someone who can support you on your journey through business - and life! - who genuinely cares about you and whether you succeed has been incredibly rewarding and crucial in getting my business to where it is today.
Running your own business can be tough and lonely sometimes, but having someone in your corner who carries no judgement and expertly wills you on at every step is worth its weight in gold.
I look forward to every session with Sarah as I know it will give me and my business the boost in the right direction every time. Thanks for everything Sarah! x”
I am a sole trader looking for new ideas and guidance and the workshops reaffirmed my business ideas and helped me put them into action. The delivery of the workshops was excellent including interaction. I would recommend Dawn & Sarah and the delivery of theses courses without any hesitation to any business.
I knew what I wanted to achieve but wasn't sure how to go about it. I recognised that I needed a change of direction and work in collaboration with others, but also to outsource some of my tasks – YTC and the workshops helped me to do this.
Sarah is a formidable force when it comes to focus and motivation. With very practical steps she enables businesses, and individuals to clear the mental clutter and get that 'one thing' done each. day to progress the business. Working in partnership with Dawn creates a fabulous team of combined skills to offer an holistic and practical vision for new and already established businesses, whatever the size. I participated in a 5 session program which has already seen great improvements in my business and time management practices, resulting in a more favourable work/ life balance, along with a very exciting future!
