Alan Simpson - Minuteman Press Paisley

"Having worked with Colin for almost a year now I can honestly say he has had a positive impact in my business and indirectly that has affected my life positively too.

In 2020 B.C. (Before Colin) I already had 11 years of running my business and I thought I knew it all...I was wrong. Colin has showed me it is possible to show an old dog new tricks and not only that the banter is great too. If you want someone to show you how to be a better version of yourself, increase sales, improve productivity, profitability, free up your time and give you a good old friendly "kick up the butt" (because let’s face it we all need one now and again) Colin is the coach to do it."

How 1-2-1 Coaching Can Help You

The majority of the business owners I come across within the industry are hard-working but lack structure and organisation and typically are not seeing the results they deserve. 

I provide that direction to create results-driven success as a credible accountability partner who has walked in your shoes who will consistently turn up energetic, enthusiastic and will always give you an honest opinion.

The tasks and knowledge provided are a fantastic resource and provides great value for money.

James Braddock - Brand Design & Print

"After only a small number of sessions, Colin has helped bring solid reassurance with increased structure and important milestones to my business model. I thoroughly value every session and feel that he is the additional member to the team that has been required for so long.

If the last 6 months are anything to go by… Colin will be a very valued part of my business life for many years to come."

Measuring Your Results With My 5 Stage Success Path!

I'm sure you've heard the saying, if you don't measure it, you can't manage it. I've created this measuring stick, a success path if you like, based on the journey the majority of my clients take from start to finish. Below is a breakdown of a typical journey of a Print Business Owner. 

It's important for me that we can clearly track your progress and see how far you have come. My system will take you from Stage 1 to Stage 5 and beyond to become A Print Mastermind.  It's worth noting that not everyone will start at stage 1 so don't worry if you feel you're perhaps already on stage 2 of 3. 

Stage 1 - Clients starting with me on stage 1 are typically feeling lost and needing structure in their business. You'll typically be firefighting most days, procrastinating over important tasks, and in need of a blueprint to follow. You'll also be fed up not earning the salary you deserve. 

Stage 2 - When you arrive at this stage, you'll be feeling far better connected with your customers. You'll understand the customer journey more and have a strategy in place for onboarding a better quality of customer who is willing to pay you what you are worth. Sales and Profits will both be up by at least 10%.

Stage 3 - Your marketing strategy will be falling into place by now and starting to deliver reliable and predictable results. You'll have a consistent stream of fresh leads coming into the business and Sales & Profits will now be up by at least 20%.

Stage 4 - By now you'll be seeing huge changes both within yourself and the business. You'll be feeling more structured, they will be new systems and processes allowing you to run the business more efficiently. You'll be feeling far more productive, managing your own time more effectively. Sales & Profits will now be up by at least 30%. 

Stage 5 - You have now become a market leader in your field. You are now earning the salary you deserve, working fewer hours in the business, and have more time to spend with your friends and family. Sales and Profits are up by at least 40%. 

But what happens next? You keep going! 

I'm constantly being asked, what happens when we get through all the material? What happens when we achieve our goals? My answer is you create new goals! I'll constantly be reviewing and improving learning content, introducing new topics and strategies, and looking out for fresh opportunities for you to benefit from. There are no limits....

Jake Adams - The Mina Group

“Over the past 12 months I have worked extensively with Colin whilst we put together our commercial growth strategy for the company. Colin's 1-2-1 Print Coaching and on-hand support have been a vital lifeline for me as the business owner. Having someone on hand to hold me accountable for daily actions and an ear of a ‘critical friend‘ has been much needed as the business navigates through these challenging times of the pandemic.

Colin’s support has enabled me to spend more time focusing strategically and longer-term on the business rather than being submerged in day-to-day operational tasks which have resulted in substantial revenue and profit growth.

The support available from Colin is a no-brainer for any business owner looking to take their company to the next level.”
