I’m a seasoned business launcher. I’ve started a consultancy, a clothing brand, a high street store and an eCommerce business. I’ve had my share of success and failure.
Been paraded at the treasury as a Small Business 100 Company and grown a startup to a 7 figure turnover.
I’ve also closed two businesses and learnt to be resilient. Sometimes you learn more from failure than you do from success. It’s how you bounce back that counts…
In life, I’ve always found I need to be doing something I’m passionate about, whether that’s climbing in the mountains, running with friends or setting up a new business.
My last business evolved around encouraging women to love life and be fit.
With Simply Hatch, I want to help people discover their passions and build the business they deserve.
By passing on everything I’ve learnt as a small business owner.
I have an MBA from Edinburgh Business School, I’ve worked as a business solutions consultant for a score of large organisations (Irish Rail, Highways Agency, Scottish Water, MoD, Abu Dhabi Flour & Feed Mill), but it means zilch compared with over 15 years in the hot seat.
I’d like to teach you how to startup and grow a successful business.
I will be using my skills as both a trained facilitator and qualified teacher (QTS) to help startups come up with step by step plans to launch, and to help established small businesses beat the plateau and grow their profitability.
Launching your first business will be hard work.
I can help you minimise the risks, build a marketing strategy and play to your strengths.
Work out what’s important to focus on right now.
I can’t run the business for you – yep that’s down to you – but I can make sure you have the best chance of making your first startup business work.
Already established? I can help you too.
In many ways, it gets harder once you’re through the momentum of the startup phase. For a business to continue to grow and increase profits, owners often need to recognise their core strengths and refocus on their most profitable sectors.
It’s challenging to find the time and resources. So often business owners will say “If only, I could do this [project] it would make a huge difference”. They know what they need to do to improve their business but don’t know how to go about it.
Sound familiar? I can use my experience to help you identify quick wins and essential long-term aims and help you implement an achievable plan for your next phase of profitable growth.
