What clients and students are saying
Through my books, courses, consulting and coaching programs, I have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs solve tough business problems. Here's what some of them have to say.
I used to be the professional in a suit who would sit on the other side of the table and tell business owners what to do. When you're a business consultant who works a safe job and earns a comfy salary, talk is easy and cheap.
After a consulting stint at PricewaterhouseCoopers and a business development career in the energy industry, I made the 'crazy' move into full-time entrepreneurship. It turned out to be the toughest but most rewarding thing I have done in my entire life.
Because I understand where and how the shoe pinches in both theory and practice, I specialize in cracking tough problems that torment entrepreneurs as they start, run, and grow their businesses.
Through my courses and programs, I have worked with over 400 entrepreneurs in a wide range of industries, from agriculture and tech, to fashion, real estate, energy, manufacturing, and more.
My work and opinions have been featured on several local and international media. But it's the testimonies and gratitude of my clients that really power my passion for the work I do.
