The Lark ascending:

business plan

The very best way to see your business idea come to life and grow and grow, is to make a plan and then enact it. We look in detail at your product and services, your customer, the market place, your sales strategy and finances. It’s all bespoke designed with you, your idea and your way of working at the forefront.

BUSINESS FINANCES

You are a creative with great ideas. You are a talented maker, designer, creator. You do not find the financial side of your business interesting and so it has become a stress, a worry, you ignore it for months and then dread dealing with it. Instead, let’s get to grips with it. Find out what has happened historically, set some goals for the future, put some systems in place and give you confidence so that the finances become a tool and a point of pride.

gallery & business chat

If you are feeling stuck with your business or career, it’s great to seek out a change of environment and a fresh perspective. Join me for a visit to a gallery exhibition followed by a coffee when you can pick my brains on a topic of your choosing.

It’s a great way to dip your toe into consulting and mentoring.
