About me

Business Life Planning...

I give business owners confidence and self esteem.

They are clear and powerful in their decision making and communication.

Through mentoring, their motivation is increased by their personal development - creating a simple plan based on their thoughts they become very clear and focused.

We get clear on what's really most important to them from their priority values.

They create a vivid picture of what 10/10 would look like for them in every area of life that's important to them - a manifestation of those values. 

Then they are clear what to focus on, to progress step by step.

By being clear on your priorities and actions, getting them out of your head and into a plan, you really feel like you're making progress with your work / life balance.

And you can enjoy the business you're in, with less anxiety, switching off in the evenings, weekends and holidays, equally enjoying the time when not in the business, resulting in more energy.

Clear, purposeful momentum, for you and your business!

What clients say on Google reviews;

Maggie; "Mark and I have been working with David for just over 3 months now, the difference in our focus and direction has been astounding."

Simon; "David is of great value to our business, but more importantly to me as an individual."

Gavin; "When we first started working with Dave at the time there were two of us, we were operating from a spare bedroom, run ragged with work and desperately needed to re-brand and expand. But were directionless with how to achieve this, to the point of being 'fed up' with our business. Bringing Dave on-board completely transformed this, his guidance gave us direction and focus, it turned out we knew what we had to do but Dave gave us the confidence to do move forward, develop and grow the company to the team of six and occupy the large premises we operate from today. If you're a business and you feel like you're treading water, YOU NEED DAVID COLLINS."

Tyrone; "I really value and appreciate David Collins. He has helped me to stay fully focused on what's important in my business on my journey. The clarity he gives me helps my sanity massively."

Eleanor; "I have been working with David for the past two years now and every week I think I couldn't possibly be any clearer on where I want my business to go, but every week I put the phone down after our call and surprise myself how much clearer if feel!"

Dave; "A friend suggested I contact Dave when I was lacking focus and direction for my business. From considering my vision for the future in week one to our weekly meetings six months on, I actively look forward to taking half an hour off the tools each week to work on the "other" side of the business."

Dan; "Working with David is fantastic! The clarity and focus he helps create is invaluable and makes a huge difference to my productivity. Looking forward to the next quarterly focus."

Rachel; "We have weekly zoom meetings which really help with goal setting and pushing our small business forward, would highly recommend."
