Freedom and Time over Money
Money is great as it allows us to do all the things we want to do, give back in the world and build a future for our families. But Freedom, Time, Happiness is why we got into business. That is what we help you achieve.
What is Better Path About
Our focus is your growth and development. By simplifying systems and processes we show you what you need to do to grow.
Marketing may not be your thing but we can show you what works, how to do it and how to convert leads into clients.
Running your own business can be hard work. If you are constantly fire fighting then we will show you how to take control, get into flow and reduce your stress.
It is harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. You don't want to compete on price and you want to work with great clients. We help you do exactly that.
Mindset for Growth
In business we control our actions and our mind. Clients and the market place do what they want. The economy goes up and down. Take control of your mind and you will take better actions. We teach you how to develop the resilience and tool set to grow a profitable and sustainable business and have fun doing it.
The Story behind Better Path
A little over 14 years ago I opted to take redundancy from my well paying job as a manager in a multi national IT Services business in London. I gave up the job security, company car, benefits and a great salary - all for the uncertainty of running my own business. But I had a dream and a mighty big Why. I wanted to spend more time with my young children. And I wanted the freedom to choose my own path.
Coaching and training is my passion. People are my thing. I had spent 5 years in University specialising in all things people and organisations by studying for a Degree in Organisational and Industrial Psychology and Post Grad in Personnel Management. This was followed by a detour into IT Systems Engineering before spending a few years as a manager operating in the competitive world of IT services in the City - working with some of the biggest names in Banking, Telecoms, Finance and Energy.
After leaving the corporate world I spent my redundancy payout on training - studying and qualifying as a NLP Master Coach, Master Results Coach, Master Performance Coach and Business Consultant. I am a constant learner so that was just the beginning. The list has got a bit longer.
I launched into business and quickly got my first clients. Things looked great from the outside but I was soon stretched thin and I was in a cycle of always having to look for the next client. I was getting time with my kids but I often spent that time thinking and planning. I was not fully present. Business was a struggle. But I knew there had to be a better way.
After my first year slogging away I decided I needed to find the better way. I was good at my craft but I needed a better system for growing a strong business. Analysing and researching businesses in the UK I started to see patterns. Success has a process. It is a little different in each business but there are common threads. I pulled the threads together and created the Thrive Method - and saw my business take off!
Over the years I have refined the Thrive Method to accommodate the big changes in business and society. Using this method I have been lucky enough to help hundreds of business owners on a 1 to 1 basis to grow profitable, sustainable and fun businesses that serve them.
There is a way to have it all. It isn't always easy but it works.
