Jim became my business coach in late 2017, at the lowest point in my 30-year business career and as a result a very challenging time for me personally. Prior to that we’d talked about working together for a number of years and I’d resisted because I didn’t feel I needed a coach. I worked with Jim for around 18 months during which time we turned the business around, focussing on recurring revenue from a carefully selected and growing group of clients. Jim's wide experience of our industry and his mentoring abilities helped me in three very important ways: 1. Jim helped to re-build my confidence in my own ability as a business leader, which was critical to me driving our turnaround 2. Jim helped change my focus from new projects and technology to building recurring revenue, and crucially guided me back when we started to go off-track (which on occasions I did.) Three years later the "smoothing" of our P&L is a dramatic change and being a business owner/CEO is a far less stressful existence. 3. Jim was a sounding board for ideas. Unless you're fortunate to have a top-rate team (as I now have), being the CEO of a business can be a lonely place, and the value of having a coach like Jim shouldn't be underestimated. I enjoyed my time working with Jim and he was without doubt instrumental in the successful transformation of my business.
