Startup coach - small business startup coaching | Phil Drinkwater

Business startup coach; find your unique path

There's a million things to do and many of them are out of your comfort zone. Coaching will be your solution.

If you’re just getting started on your first business, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, critical of yourself, and unsure.

I understand. I was also there. I launched my own company and experienced the same emotional roller coaster. However, it made £15 million in sales, and you can do the same.

You may just need some help in making the shift from being told what to do to making your own decisions.

I'm here to remind you how and why you can do this on the days you don't think you can, and to take a tiny step. I've got you!

Take a deep breath..

You’re changing your life and you’re excited right? But the hill in front looks hellishly huge.

Let’s breathe and take a single, tiny step at a time, with self-kindness forming every step.

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.


You don't have to do this alone

My 22-year business experience has given me numerous opportunities to solve a wide variety of challenges. If you’re just getting started, you may be unsure about where to begin or how to achieve the goal of a successful product or service, and who you need to be to accomplish it.

Marketing & sales plans

In the early stages of a company, marketing and sales techniques are sometimes disregarded. Nobody wants to confess they have no idea what they’re doing, so they ignore this factor. Coaching can assist you in determining what you need to accomplish in this situation.

Time management & productivity

As a startup, time is your most valuable asset. To succeed in business, you must effectively manage your time, but many new business owners attempt to handle everything on their own. An experienced business coach can help you get more done and make the most of your time, even on days when you feel out of your comfort zone, so you can focus on growing your successful business.

Personal growth

Understanding who you are and how you operate best is critical, and a significant portion of the coaching process will be spent exploring to learn more about you. You will be able to succeed as a result of this.

Minimum viable product

Creating a minimal viable product that enables for inexpensive pivoting is a critical tool for new businesses. Few enterprises turn out precisely as their founders had hoped, and a startup coach can assist you in keeping costs low and fast adapting your project to market needs.

Work / life balance

For a variety of reasons, being a small business owner can be stressful on a personal level. If you’re starting a business while working a full-time job, things may get even more difficult. If you strike a solid work-life balance, you can avoid burnout. Let me help you avoid stress and burnout.

Self-kindness is incredibly important during your journey. It will unlock the happy emotions like creativity, pride and curiosity that are so important when starting a business.

Look inward, not outward

New business owners frequently purchase books and watch YouTube videos in search of advice on how to become a millionaire.

It is only later that they realise everything they required was already within them.

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”
