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 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”
