    So far in 2020, I’ve supported more than 40 small businesses to set up. Which is no small feat, especially during a year like this one.

    I’ve always loved what I do; taking people through the steps to make their dreams a reality. But in 2020, my work means more to me than ever before.

    There are many reasons that these 40 people contacted me and decided to work with me to make it happen. 

    Whatever the reasons, it matters. Especially when it comes to small businesses. Because behind each of these decisions, and each of the subsequent businesses that has emerged, is a person.

    That’s 40 individual people, with 40 different wishes and 40 different experiences that are today living 40 different dreams.

    I love knowing I’ve made a positive difference - not only to their businesses - but to their lives, and to the lives of their loved ones.

    This is what gives me my get-up-and-go. These are the people who give me my motivation, my job satisfaction, and my reason to get up in the morning.

    I’ve always loved what I do, but in 2020 it feels just that little bit more important.

    With this in mind, I wondered how I could extend my experience, knowledge and skills to others. As far as I’m concerned, the more people I’m able to help live their dream life, the better.

    Especially at a time like this.

    During 2019, I’d been writing a book to reach a wider group of people, and to help them live their dreams by taking the Leap into HR Consulting™. But truth be told, it’s not easy to write a book and I’d put it off in favour of all manner of distractions….

    But as 2020 continued to hit us all, I set myself a challenge to finish it. And many words later (with many late nights to get me there), I’ve managed it.

    The Leap into HR Consulting™ book is (nearly!) here. It’s with my publishers as we speak and it available to pre-order from next Monday (October 5th, 2020).

    In it, you’ll find 306 pages of practical advice to accelerate your success as you make the Leap into Consulting™.

    I’m so pleased to be able to share this with you all. Here’s to empowering many more dreams ahead!

    The truth at this point is that none of us really know. What we do know is that the most recent announcement from No.10 states that workers in England should work from home if they can. This brings England back into line with the rest of the UK who haven’t deviated from this rule since lockdown began.

     It is likely, Boris Johnson continued, that this could continue for the next 6 months.

    Six months, and then what? The reality as far as this virus goes is that all we can do is wait. Wait and see what the future holds.

    There are two ways of making it through this strange time.

    You can take a step back and watch as the world takes over, or you can meet the challenges head first to push forward and come out the other side with a new, improved, quality of life.

     The really great thing is that we get to choose which path we take.

     Yes, 6 months is a long time. But think what you can achieve in that time.

    If running your own business is something you’ve considered, now is the time to make it happen.

    I’m sure some of you already know that my Leap into HR Consulting™ Bootcamp runs for 6 weeks, and that by the end of it you’ll have all the knowledge needed to make waves as a consultant. This in itself is quite an achievement and something that many people take years to achieve.

     But if we look at a 6-month time period, it’s even more impressive.

    In 6 months’ time you could have an enjoyable, successful business up and running.

    A business where you have clients on board. One where your clients are companies you actually want to work with. One where you enjoy your daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. One where you get to choose how much you earn.

    Doesn’t that sound fantastic? If you are thinking ‘yes, but it’s too good to be true’, take it from me that it’s very possible. I know because I have seen it happen, countless times.

    In 2020 alone, I have supported 40 people to set up and grow their own consultancy business.

    Six months from now, what do you want to look back on?

    A life lived waiting, or a life lived living? Will you be the next success story?

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic fallout, the number of UK redundancies this year is estimated at 134,000 so far, though many more positions are expected to head that way over the coming months, too.

     If you’ve been made redundant during 2020, you’re not alone.

     But you’re probably wondering - what next?

     Sadly, at a time of increased redundancy, employment opportunities are fewer.

     Times like this are made from a cruel mix of less full-time employment positions available, and many more people scrambling to win them. Not a position any jobseeker wishes to find themselves in.

     I know this all sounds bleak, but bear with me because there is a solution to your problems.

     As the saying goes; ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’.

    For those willing to step outside of their comfort zone, there are a lot of opportunities available.

    Though many full-time jobs no longer exist, it doesn’t mean that the requirements of those jobs have disappeared altogether.

    It’s common that companies no longer need someone for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week but that they instead need someone to step in and take care of a few of the former-role responsibilities.

     Enter: Consultants.

     A consultant’s role is increasingly important during times like this, and companies are clambering over each other to find the right person.

    That person could be you in as little as 6 weeks’ time if you take the right, and relevant, steps today.

    My 6 week fast-track bootcamp will have you ready to work as an HR Consultant in just 6 weeks. We work through everything from company set up through to how to find clients in just 6 short weeks. The course is intense, at times, but it will get you where you need to be.

    I know, taking the Leap into Consulting™ can seem intimidating. There is a lot to think about but my tried and tested method gets results.

    Think of it this way: in 6 weeks’ time, what are your chances of finding - and landing - your perfect new job?

     If you join my Bootcamp, alongside it’s other go-getter delegates, I’m sure you’ll find your chances are better than you ever could have hoped for.
