I’m Louisa, a Holistic Business Mentor and Strategist from Lancashire in the North West of England.

I love working with individuals and teams that are ready to take ACTION, people like you!  

Past and current clients have been at different stages of their business/es.  Some are new to the business world, others have been doing it for years, but they share common frustrations… either they feel confused, or unsure about what to do next or they have a sense of frustration. 

They want to feel excited about “what’s next”, rather than second-guessing everything and wondering how on earth they’re going to get to the next stage.

This is where I come in.  I provide the practical and logical tools, techniques and strategies to create the foundations for you to thrive.  It’s a collaborative and creative approach but I will help you to develop a business that works for you, one that is aligned to your values and along the way, we will have lots of fun!

Why me?

I’m an introvert but I am not afraid to be open and honest with people and that’s often one of the reasons why people choose to work with me.  The feedback I’ve received is that I instinctively ‘get’ people and they’re surprised at how quickly I come up with different ideas, even with limited knowledge of them or their business.

My approach is to understand what makes you ‘tick’ and to help you realise your potential.  It’s about knowing where your frustrations lie and what you want to achieve. 

If you’re someone who gets carried away and distracted, I can reign you in and help you with the practicalities, whilst holding you accountable. 

I can facilitate and support you with creating strategies, looking at productivity and how you work, and creating tactics that work for you without a need to compromise.

Or maybe it’s a mindset issue. You need to ditch the imposter syndrome and stop overthinking everything.  Together we will work on your confidence levels.

My style is informal back but it doesn’t mean I am not serious about what I do or that I’m not ambitious.  I am not someone who could ever be described as being ‘woo woo’ but it doesn’t stop me from getting excited about my clients’ successes. 

I thrive on helping and supporting others.  Sometimes it means I might come across as a little bossy but it’s only because I want to make sure you stay on track for what you want to achieve.  I should also warn you that I will challenge your thinking and occasionally, I might play devil’s advocate but it’s all with the objective of helping you to thrive and be successful!

When I'm not working...

I love being silly with my 5-year-old son and I love to watch him develop.

I love getting out and about, going on mini adventures to the coast and to the countryside. 

I love listening to music and going to gigs (professional or pub bands).

I rarely drink alcohol but if I do, it’s either a cheeky glass of wine, beer or champagne.

Even though I am a shy, introvert, I love to push myself out of my comfort zone. 

I’ve got a phobia of heights but it didn’t stop me from jumping out of an aeroplane at 12,000ft! 

Thanks for reading!

I don’t know about you but when I read about pages, I like to get a vibe of what a person is like.  The fact you have nearly reached the bottom of this page is hopefully a good sign that you like what you’ve read.  So why not take it a step further… book a call with me.

Let’s have a free 20-minute chat about you and your business.  If you can find just 20-minutes to invest you’ll be amazed at the clarity you can gain, you might even come away with some ideas!

“Louisa went above and beyond to get to know me, my business, my story, my brand and what I wanted to achieve.  Louisa also believed in me, championed me and celebrated with me when I started getting results.  She was comfortable digging deep to find out what I wanted / needed from LinkedIn and then delivered exactly to my needs as an individual.
