About Me

Named as one of UK broadsheet The Independent’s 20 Extraordinary Women of 2017, I am a motivational speaker, writer, and growth coach who inspires women to conquer their fears and live a life they love - both personally and in their business.

I've worked with start-ups through to multi-million-pound companies, as well as advised awarding bodies and other leading education based organisations on enterprise and entrepreneurship. This culminated in being appointed lead adviser to Lord Young on a UK government review of entrepreneurship education, 'Enterprise For All', in 2014. 

I specialise in coaching female founders, particularly single mums and women who’ve experienced challenges including domestic abuse,  and I'm passionate about empowering everyone to achieve economic independence.  

In addition, I'm author of the best-selling book 'How To Be Your Own Boss As A Single Mum', and e-book '88 Ways To Make More Money In Your Business Starting Today'.

I also contribute start-up advice and tips for a range of websites and online magazines, as well as a media commentator on business and single parenting issues.


why choose to work with me?

I've been there. I know your challenges, I know your back story, I know your worries. I've come through them all to establish myself as a successful entrepreneur and author, and go-to expert on single parent start-ups, and entrepreneurship.

I've started a number of businesses over the past 18 years; taking them from an idea to something recognisable and trustworthy. I've also had my fair share of failures. Some business coaches won't tell you that... 

I've also coached hundreds of business founders - all ages, all backgrounds, all industries. I've helped them to turn a hobby or passion into an income, and then build that business to success. 

So: who better to support you than someone who's been there and done it themselves?
