Testimonials

  • What drew you to your Alan's services?
    I attended a free masterclass where Alan was sharing his expertise within his field. I was encouraged by his understanding of what a service based business needed and showed exceptional skills in listening, understanding and reframing.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Alan?
    My biggest challenge which led me to work with Alan was that I was letting my emotions affect my business. There were long held belief systems that needed to be explored for me to be a more effective and successful business owner.

    What changed after working with Alan?
    Alan helped me to realise that my core strengths an be both a positive attribute however when over used can be detrimental to my personal and professional wellbeing. Since working with Alan I have developed strategies which mean that I approach many situations with a very different outlook with the ability to separate myself from my business.

    What specific results can you share?
    Identifying what behaviours are triggered resulted in me making a realistic plan where I could control the effects of being triggered. For example, I can now completely reframe what I see and hear and see it from an entirely different perspective through the learning I have completed with Alan.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Alan's services?
    Go for it, You are in safe hands, its great fun and eye-opening!

  • What drew you to Alan's services?
    I was drawn to the fact Alan worked with sole directors to elevate their businesses. He's been in my position so knows the real challenges.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Alan?
    I found it difficult to make the big decisions. This caused me a lot of stress and anxiety which showed itself in both my work and home life.

    What changed after working with Alan?
    I now understand why I found it so difficult to make those decisions, I have strategies and a framework to change this and now I can easily make both big and small decisions. My stress levels have decreased and I can sleep soundly once again. Also, the personality profiling has been incredibly useful in many areas of both my business and personal life.

    What specific results can you share?
    Deciding to say no to a contract that I knew would ultimately cause me to feel undervalued and be overworked. This resulted in the client responding with a counteroffer which was the rate and level of work I desired. Standing my ground and knowing my worth was something I didn't have the confidence to do before.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Alan's services?
    Do it! What have you got to lose? I was always sceptical about hiring a business coach but its the best decision I've made for myself and my business.
