Business Coaching Testimonials
The best way to understand how I can help YOU, is by hearing from my clients and their Success Stories. Below are a few recent business coaching testimonials, and you can find more across my social media channels.

I had a great experience with Margaret. I have a fairly niche business, and not one I expect every business coach to understand. Margaret was able to ease my scepticism with her forthright yet positive and uplifting manner, she was focused and was able to set doable and workable timelines where I was able to complete and enjoy tasks in order for me to make much better and informed plans of action.
I would absolutely recommend Margaret to any female entrepreneur. I was really losing my grip on my business as it started to expand, and I needed someone to find my strengths and work with them. Margaret did that, and more! She exceeded all my expectations, and left me feeling really positive, confident and more capable of approaching and keeping new clients! Thank you, Margaret!
Margaret’s kindness, encouragement, ideas and understanding of what it means to run a solo business all combine to make her an excellent coach. Her three-month programme has helped me to rethink my business, from financial and business planning through to identifying my ideal clients, redefining my offering to them and how best to reach them. Expertise, experience and training show; Margaret has all these in abundance. Add her generosity of spirit and you get an effective, encouraging coach who delivers results and is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
I was so impressed with Margaret’s quick understanding of my niche business and how she could help me drive it forward. I had lost a bit of motivation due to lockdown and didn’t really know how to get going again. Margaret gave clear suggestions on the areas I’d be wise to focus on, whilst giving me space to develop them on my own. We also worked on improving pricing and offers to my future clients.
She is obviously very experienced in business coaching and helping others achieve their goals and is also very easy to relate to. 100% recommended.
Villa Holiday Specialist
Margaret has helped me enormously with my travel business over the last year. When we first started our coaching sessions, I had arrived at the point in my business where I could take it in a number of directions. I needed guidance to focus on the best ways to move forward.
After only a few one to one sessions, Margaret quickly understood what I needed to do and helped me to set up manageable strategies for implementing much-needed changes. I must admit that she pushed me a bit out of my comfort zone, but it was necessary.
Margaret has definitely encouraged confidence in my own abilities, which has, in turn, enabled me to reach my specific business goals. A year on and I still go to Margaret for advice about important decisions for my business. Thanks to Margaret’s wise guidance, my business is flourishing this year. She has made a real difference, so I am grateful for choosing her as my coach. I would have no hesitation recommending her.

SEO Specialist & Digital Marketing
When I first met Margaret, I had just restarted freelancing as an SEO professional, after relocating to the UK. I knew my job, but not how to manage it here, and I was also quite scared and confused.
Margaret helped me – and keeps helping me – getting clarity of vision in understanding what I really want and need, then how to achieve it. With her help, I’ve been able to start public speaking with confidence – also during an event which lasted 8 hours! I’m much more organised time-wise and confident in speaking to any kind of client. THANKS, Margaret! You’re precious, unforgettable!
The first task Margaret gave me was “tell me what you do” – and I failed badly. I didn’t understand why she wasn’t pleased, and it took some persuasion to get me working. Now I know why and thanks to Margaret my marketing messages are much more clear and appealing.
But more importantly, Margaret is a very warm, personable and encouraging coach, who helped me overcome my major obstacle – my lack of self- belief. I didn’t know how to expand my practice without creating more space in life. Thanks to Margaret and her skills in NLP, I created more space in my self-belief and life created a space for new therapeutic space in Central London. Working with Margaret was a privilege and fun. I will be back.
Before meeting Margaret my 60 second network talks were very clumsy and not informative. I didn’t have a true direction for my business and I was trying to do too many things with no solid foundation for any.
Within 6 weeks coaching with Margaret, she managed to put me on track. She helped me clarify my marketing message and showed where I need to focus to improve my business. But she also helped me get clarity on who my ideal client is and how I can reach them.
What do I want people to know about me? How does my website represent me? We worked on my website to make sure that my website accurately represents my business and what I offer. We covered so much in the time we had. At the end of my 6 weeks, I grew as a business person with more knowledge and focus how to reach success with the work I am passionate about.
Brand & Design Consultant
When Angela came to work with me, she was confident about her creative expertise, but terrified of public speaking. She realised she needed to build self-confidence so she could communicate effectively with potential clients, bring in consistent income, and grow her business.
At first, we explored the feelings behind Angela’s fear of public speaking and strategies for moving forward. Next, we worked on her one-minute pitch and ten-minute talks until Angela could deliver these confidently. I also helped Angela clarify her service and create a marketing and sales strategy which further boosted her self-confidence.
Within 6 weeks, Angela made back her investment in coaching. Within 3 years, she doubled her turnover, became a limited VAT-registered company, and brought in 40% of her projects from networking. The most important transformation was her increased self-confidence.
“Margaret left me with the mindset that I must step out of my comfort zone, because I now know what happens when I do. If I hadn’t taken the leap, I wouldn’t be here now. It really was the best investment I could have made for myself and my business.”

Margaret is an amazing person to work with. Not only is she patient with you she communicates in such a way that is not condescending. She takes her time to understand your business. She has been a real asset to my business and a worthwhile investment as she has helped me streamline my focus.
As a result, my business has almost doubled in less than a year. I am looking forward to working with Margaret again in order to move my business to the next level.
When I started as a Solopreneur, I did not where to start, what to do, how to do it, and Margaret helped me a lot in getting started the right way.
I liked working with her because: (1) she helped me be clear on my target clients and the message I wanted to deliver,
(2) Margaret is very pragmatic and that’s what you need when you start a business so she has a range of resources that she shares with you that are extremely helpful for building your business,
(3) She includes NLP in her coaching and that helped me a lot get rid of my fears. The mix between personal development and business coaching is really useful and
(4) her coaching style is full of energy, optimistic and so every time I left a session, I felt re-energised and ready to rock it. I definitely recommend her.
Margaret is lovely, and a great coach. She helped me with several issues including mindset, suggestions on options for my website, lead magnets, and other ideas to build my business. If you’re looking for someone who can help you develop a more positive business mindset, helps you with guidance and plans, helps you set goals, but doesn’t stand any excuses, Margaret is just the person you need.
Before I started working with Margaret I struggled with finding my way in business. I had too much on my plate, and I was trying to do too many things at a time – I just couldn’t see the way forward.
Also, I was feeling uncomfortable whenever I had to talk about money with clients. And I knew I had to do something about it.
After a chat with Margaret, I decided to hire her to help me out. She is amazing. She is there to challenge your limiting beliefs, to give you guidance and to help you find clarity.
Plus, she helped me out figure out who is my ideal client and worked with me to get completely clear on my goals for the business. If you need someone to help you get unstuck in business and help you plan your next steps to move forward, Margaret is the right person for you.

Working with Margaret is one of the best decisions I could have made for my business. Margaret is my business coach and since I began working with her, my health and wellness business started to grow and thrive.

I’m really happy with her services and the level of expertise she brings into our meetings so that I can get the most possible out of each session. I leave each session feeling even more inspired and motivated to try the things she recommended, all of which has helped me professionally. When she says she gives results, she really does give results.
