Hi there, I’m Lucy.
I’m a certified Business Coach, Development Consultant and peppermint tea obsessive.
I love bringing ideas to life; plotting grand schemes and generally making stuff happen. That’ll be the INTJ in me.
I’m really quite determined, I bloody love a challenge and I find if someone says ‘no’, I’m actually twice as likely to find a way to do it.
After a degree in Management and a 15-year career working in-house in the arts and charity sector in roles across marketing, project delivery and business development, I started a family, and also started freelancing instead of returning to the old day job. I matched up my love of all things enterprise with my coaching and management skills, and started Business Coaching 1:1 with freelancers and offering Consultancy services to charities and CICs.
It works for me: more flexibility, more freedom, no salary cap… whats not to love?
I knew that the mindset, skills and business know-how I had stood me in great stead to get off to a flying start working for myself – but I know too not everyone has that combination, and that’s why I started my Coaching 1:1. I offer start-ups, freelancers and small business owners a supportive environment in which they can get accountability and the kind of ongoing business-focused ‘CPD’ that you just can’t access elsewhere. Sounds up your street? You’re welcome to apply to work with me, just book in for a Strategy Session here to check we’re a good fit and find out more about how I can help you.
So what does a day in my life look like…?
These days you can generally find me working away in a local cafe with my laptop and phone, maybe cooking up business plans over Skype with a client, crafting a funding bid for a local CIC or planning training workshops for the fellow freelancers I support who are treading the same path as me.
I love helping women who are running their own purposeful business ventures to step up and surprise themselves a little by finally delivering on what they know, deep down, they are truly capable of.
I also love helping charities connect with supporters and find ways to make amazing, community-focused projects happen.
If you’d like support to grow your mission-driven venture to its full potential or to secure income for your socially-focused business, lets talk.
Want to work with me?
Not sure where you’re at?
Then send me more details about what’s going on for you and we could set up a time for a virtual brew, to get your head straight and talk your options through.
No small talk, I promise. I am a Coach after all – I like the juicy questions 😉
Just a whole lot of love and big supportive high-fives from me.
I look forward to chatting with you…
