Are you a business owner facing a challenge? An experienced business coach creates a safe place to discuss your hopes, challenges, and concerns. They spur your insights, speed your learning curve, and inspire you to reach your full potential.

They help you transform yourself, your team, and your business.

Let's work together to reach your next level.


Real change does NOT occur incrementally. Forget about 1 per cent here and 50 cents there. That's not where the breakthroughs are.

Real change comes from transformation. A leap forward. A level up.

Real change asks something of us. Honesty. Courage. A break from yesterday, and a belief in tomorrow.

Great coaches know this. They support us gently yet firmly. They hold us accountable to the best vision we have of ourselves, our company, and our future.

They know that transformation needs vision plus courage plus support.

"I don't feel so restricted or constrained...

...2019 is going to be fun!"

-Paul Cook


I work one-on-one with individual business owners and, where appropriate, their management teams.

We usually work together in 91-day bursts. This keeps the work focused, and is enough time to make substantial progress.

The work we do ranges considerably. It depends on the individual and the challenge. But at the heart of our work, we commit to weekly conversations which form the backbone of the project. They drive accountability and momentum.

Our work almost always starts with a business-related challenge or opportunity. However, transformation asks us to bring everything to the table. So my work is holistic, and often touches on other important areas of the business owner's life.

My role is to support you, the business owner. To nurture your creativity and resourcefulness. To empower you to achieve your transformative goal. To help you create a successful business, and also, to help you experience a deep sense of fulfillment as an individual.

By the way, I am deeply confident of the work that we will do together. I demonstrate this by offering offer a money-back guarantee on everything I do.

"We want to make sure and

maximize our potential."

I bring a rich set of experience and skills to my coaching work, both practical, theoretical, and personal.

I have started and run six companies, and been involved with hundreds of others in a variety of roles, from advisor to CEO to board member. I understand what it's like to start and lead and grow a company.

I earned an MBA from Kellogg's School of Management. This provides me with deep formal insights into strategy and innovation.

I teach business and entrepreneurship at the university level, and through my own online courses and live workshops.

I am a disciple of the Co-Active Coaching method. Its belief in the innate talent of each individual resonates nicely with own focus on individual empowerment.

I have personally worked closely with thousands of business owners. In addition, my workshops, courses and products have helped a quarter million business owners in over 120 countries.

"It was really important for me to be both challenged and supported."
