Small Strokes

mentoring

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to look at my mentoring page. As someone who has searched for help with my own businesses, I understand that this is the first leap. But don't worry you are in safe hands. And I hope we can work together, to build your confidence and business.

I have over 15 years of practical marketing and business experience working in a variety of industries. You can find everything about me here. 

Why choose me as your personal marketing mentor, 'cus there is a fair few of us about? That's a very good question. Let me start with my mission. My life has been hectic. I am someone who loves to create and grow brands, I love to roll my sleeves up and get involved.

 

I have built up a huge bank of knowledge working in corporate, small business, tech startups and ultimately for myself. Peppered in this bank of knowledge are a fair few failures and a good handful of learning curves. 

MY MISSION
 

I live for people who are brave enough to create a business. It takes more guts than most people will ever know. It is the most rewarding job in the world, to watch an idea your thought of growing and growing. But it has its downsides.

 

Working in microbusinesses, small businesses or hustling on your own can be at times be truly overwhelming. The plates that you spin increase daily, and one of the most important ones, but the one that can get dropped or overworked is marketing.

 

My mission is to help, support and lead you through simple and effective techniques that can streamline your processes, allow you to laser focus on your strategy and grow your business without feeling overrun. 

 

WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME
 

Post pandemic, where the world can be a little too digital, it is sometimes difficult to network and find your own self employed and small business tribes. Those group of people that just understand your frustrations and also your wins. Family and friends are great, but you know that sometimes you just want someone who just understands and gives you advice from a place of experience and not opinion.

 

I don’t really like the word cheerleader, it seems too saccharine and one-dimensional. I’d rather use words like advocate, defender, promoter and friend. My aim is to understand, listen, work with you on your business and support your decision as we work out your marketing strategy. I needed people when I was building my businesses, and now I want to be there for you. 

MY SERVICES

I offer a range of services made to support business, and available in single or split zero-interest payments. Budgets are tight, and sometimes you want to commit, but paying a lump sum upfront can be difficult. Trust me, I know you have bills to pay.
