Do you love what you do, you’re just not making enough money doing it?
Are you constantly worrying about where your next client is coming from?
Is your business not growing despite the tremendous effort you put in?
And do you just KNOW you could be achieving so much more?
If you nodded in response to any of these questions, you’re not alone! These challenges are familiar to many business owners and in my experience, when businesses are not getting the results they want, it’s always because there’s a tension between what they want and what they’re actually doing..
Having worked with literally thousands of people in business as a leader, a coach, a mentor and a trainer, and with a strong emphasis on sustainable results, I work with ambitious business owners to create the conditions that are central to business success.
These conditions are summarised as VMA: VISION > MINDSET > ACTION, three essential components that when aligned and working together, create essential TRACTION in your business, enabling you to grow your business with ease!
Who I work with
I work with business owners with ambitious growth aspirations who have the passion and the drive to grow their business but who recognise that they don’t have the knowledge, skills and/or resources and that they need external support (preferably from someone who has been there and done it!) to do so.
I have worked in the field of people, team and business development for over 18 years, initially in an Operational Management and HR capacity in the corporate sector and later in the SME sector, both as a business owner and as a consultant.
This includes 4 years as a director of the UK’s largest joined up business network, where I developed the infrastructure, including the leadership strategy and team and the processes, systems and training to develop a national business growth platform to enable small businesses to grow.
I am qualified in Psychology and NLP and that combined with my experience working with thousands of businesses, training hundreds of leaders and developing dozens of teams has resulted in a thorough understanding of the many challenges that are familiar to business owners and their people.
This makes me uniquely placed to work with small businesses to develop the Vision, Mindset and Action plan to enable significant business success.
How I work
As your Coach, my role is to support you through your business (and often personal!) challenges and to enable you to find solutions yourself. As your Mentor, my role is to direct, guide and advise you based on my extensive business experience and training. I marry the two roles very comfortably and the result is that you get the benefit of not making unnecessary mistakes which can cost both time and money, whilst also walking a business growth path which is right for you.
As a business owner, you have many choices and opportunities, more possibly than you realise! Often when you are bogged down in the day to day running your business, you can’t see those choices and opportunities clearly. This is where I can add value.
I can help you to reconnect with why you are in business and to define where you are heading so that you create a vision for your business that inspires and motivates both you (and anyone else in the business) to take the specific action necessary to make that vision reality.
I can help you to align your mindset with that vision so that you are conditioned internally for the specific outcome you want and so that you are able to communicate what you do effectively and to influence your ideal client to work with you.
I can help you to weigh up growth options and opportunities and to create an action plan to achieve them.
And I can help you to make key decisions and to develop your leadership style and ability so that you are able to implement changes with the full engagement of your team.
“Tamsen will propel you and your business to the next level!”
I was in overwhelm. I was receiving lots of conflicting advice and I was stuck on which direction I should take my business in. I felt I was running very fast but getting nowhere! My VMA session with Tamsen was amazing! I left the session knowing what my long term vision for my business felt and looked like and for the first time and I was clear on what had been holding me back until that point. I had some brilliant, simple and easily implementable tools that I could and did use immediately and I had a feeling of calm – the anxiety had gone completely. For the first time, I was crystal clear about who I wanted to work with and I was so focused on the specific outcomes I wanted that within 3 weeks I had been invited to speak at 4 different events.Deborah Turner
