Are you interested in getting a Marketing and Start-Up Coach who will support you throughout your start-up journey? Or do you just want to know a bit more about what I do? I will answer your questions here. Just browse through this section and if there is a question that is not answered, contact me.

What support do you offer and how?

I can help you with starting your own business and/or with marketing your business successfully. I do that in different ways: 1:1 in person/via Skype, with books, with free webinars, with freebies, workshops and online courses. The support can be tailored around your needs and will make starting up/marketing easy for you. I offer my support to individuals, small businesses and universities. Contact me to book a free consultation.

How can you support me with my start up?

I can support you in many different ways. The best way would be to have a free consultation first to see which support you need. After that, we can either work 1:1 with each other at a Breakthrough Day that will be tailored around a specific issue you would like resolved or we work 1:1 together over a period of time working our way through The Start-Up Formula. If you’d rather work your way through The Start-Up Formula yourself, you can get my book and go through the steps. Also check out my online courses to see if they cover a topic of interest for you. Contact me for a free consultation.

How can you support me with marketing?

I created different marketing packages that will cater different needs and preferred ways of working. The Marketing Formula can be worked on 1:1 in person or via Skype – focusing either on a specific topic throughout a Breakthrough Day or working your way through all 6 steps over a period of time.

If you’d rather work your way through the 6 steps of The Marketing Formula yourself, you can either purchase my online course that comes with personal support or buy the book.

I also created a social media support package for you in which I create the content for your social media channels. Also check out my free webinars and freebies on my website for supporting your with your marketing.

Do you offer online support?

Yes, I do. You can either work with me via Skype 1:1 or purchase my online courses that come with personal support.

Do you have free startup resources?

Yes, I run regular free webinars and also have a lot of free resources that you can download on my website.

What is start-up Coaching?

It is very important that you understand what Coaches do and don’t do.

So, what do I do and how do I do it?

  • I will help you to start up your own business and to get results.
  • I will support you by being there for you.
  • I will assist you to firstly define concrete goals, and then secondly to accomplish them.
  • I will help you to get structure into your start up journey and market it successfully by using coaching, questioning and NLP techniques (for more info on NLP click here).
  • I will challenge you by asking you questions. But, don’t worry,  you will have the answers to them – even though you may think you don’t.
  • I will assist you to explore options that you may not have thought of.
  • I will define an action plan with you so that you always know what to do next.

What don’t I do?

  • Coaches are not Mentors, Counsellors or Therapists.
  • We do not go to the root of an issue. We uncover the main issue that may be holding you back to take action and work on that.
  • We concentrate on the future, rather than the past.
  • We only focus on solutions, not on problems.
  • We don’t give advice, as we know you have all the answers in you already. We help you find them.
  • We may not have specific knowledge of your branch, but we can support you in anything you would like to achieve in your life.

Sounds interesting?

Here are the main differences between Coaching and other professions:
Counselling is primarily concerned with fixing problems by focussing on the past. This is how they get to the root of an issue.
Therapists deal with psychological problems such as panic attacks, phobias, trauma, etc. They use a range of techniques to resolve the issue.
Mentors give advice, and are normally an expert in their field. They are very directional.

Is start-up Coaching for you?

After understanding what start up Coaching is, you should ask yourself if it is for you, before hiring a start up Coach.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself to find out:
Do I need a lot of direction from someone to achieve what I want?
Do I need to be told what to do?
If the answers are yes, then you may consider talking to a Mentor or Directional Coach.

Are you motivated to make the change you want in your life?
Am I ready to …
… work to achieve your goals?
… explore options your haven’t yet thought of?
… be challenged?
… commit to change?
… take action?
… start up my own business?
… market my own business successfully?

If your answers are yes, then you just need to find the right Coach for you. I would be happy to be yours.

You might also ask yourself “What is it like to have a Coach?”
Having one will help you structure your start up journey and get the results you want. You will feel motivated, as you will see success in what you are doing. Investing in a marketing and start-up Coach is investing in your business. How does that sound?

However, you need to be prepared: You are not only committing to yourself, but also to the start up Coach, as they are helping you to move forward. So remember: If you don’t take action, then you won’t get results.

So, am I the right marketing and start-up Coach for you?

What is NLP?

NLP stands for “Neuro Linguistic Programming”.
Neuro – refers to the nervous system. Our experience of the world enters the brain via the nervous system and the five senses. Neuro stands for how we process this sensory experience and translate it into conscious and unconscious thoughts.

Linguistc – refers to language. We communicate both on unconscious and conscious levels – verbally and non-verbally.

Programming – indicates the way in which we consistently think and behave. Each of us runs specific programs to produce our behaviour. Programs consist of a series of steps that automatically produce certain behaviour. NLP can reveal the programs you run and the results they produce. It also gives you the means to change your own and other people’s programms to produce the results you want. In simple terms: A program can be a habit. NLP provides tools to easily change a habit or make something a habit.

As you can see, NLP has a lot to do with communicating with and understanding each other.

There are a few things I would like to point out that will sound interesting to you:

  • We accept that everyone has a different view of the world and the reality. This influences behaviour and improves communication.
  • NLP presuppose that if you change your perception, it changes both your beliefs and your behaviour.
  • It also assumes that everyone has the resource they need to achieve what they want.

What are the benefits of NLP in Life Coaching?

  • NLP improves communication overall and acknowledges the different perception of everyone.
  • The techniques used will help you to achieve your goals. You will feel more confident and overcome any personal barriers to succeed.
  • NLP provides different tools for issues and motivation and can change beliefs where wanted.

How long is a Coaching session?

How many Coaching sessions do you need?

This question can’t be answered generically. Some clients stay with me over a period of a year, whilst other clients may achieve one goal, and then come back when there is something new they would like to work on with my support.

To give you an indication though, 4 sessions should be the minimum although you will see first results and be ready to take action straight after the first Coaching session.

My Coaching programme CHANGE consists of 12 sessions. Check it out here.

My program RESULT that will help you to become your own marketing expert adds up to 2 days.

And if you are further into your start up journey, check out my programme BALANCE to achieve the Work-Life-Balance you want which adds up to 1 full day.

I can come around to your work place or we can meet in another location. I live in Chelmsford, Essex but am flexible regarding location and time. I also offer phone/Skype sessions.

The most important thing for a marketing and start up Coaching session is that you and I can concentrate and are not distracted. Apart from that, a table and something to write on, there are no special requirements.
