At least once a day is silently screaming into the stationery cupboard because you are so sick of your job?
The work, the hours, the customers, your colleagues, the rules, that really irritating team leader or pain in the backside manager who has no idea about the real world, in your eyes?
Or the fact your lunch hour is in reality a lunch 10 minutes because you just can't get away from your desk for a break?
Is it some or all of the above?
Are you truly sick of the 9 - 5 commute, the long hours, zero praise and all for a rubbish salary?
Or have you had a
Are you facing redundancy rather unexpectedly or lucky enough to have chosen to take it because it is on offer?
Perhaps you have retired from a conventional job, left a uniformed service or maybe now an expat looking for something else to challenge and excite you for the next (some say the best) part of your life?
Has something big changed in your life such as the kids leaving home, or perhaps, very sadly you have lost your partner or you are now having to look after an elderly parent?
Have you just simply decided now is the time you are going to actually get on with that thing you always wanted to do for the last however many years?
Are you still wondering what you are going to do with your life?
I have spent my entire working life in a regular average paid job but dabbled several times in starting small business ideas on the side, over the years because I wanted to get out of working for someone else, probably just like you.
And what I mean by dabbling is I tried 9 online business and 1 offline business attempts.
Some were passion based and the others were "it seemed like a good practical idea at the time" ideas.
My efforts all failed miserably and totally turned me off the very mention of "business idea" for a very long time because I thought I was a failure.
I didn't match up at all or relate to any of the people I saw on Dragon's Den or read about in other people's success books.
In fact the real world offline business nearly destroyed my relationship because it was "the practical choice!"
It all seemed too hard and I thought I must be stupid...
...but I wasn't and then the penny dropped as I realised after some training
My criteria for choosing each business idea had been
And both methods led to disaster for me because
"Follow your passion" is not necessarily the best advice for everyone as you can fall out of with your passion.
A love of something could very easily turn to hate when you start to do it in exchange for money.
"Being practical" is like wearing sensible shoes.
You know they will do the job but deep down you want to break out and wear diamante flip flops because they fit your personality better.
But don't get me wrong "passion for business" is essential and I use it throughout in that context.
Now with all of that said, perhaps you can understand why I want help you shortcut all of this misery?
I didn't know there was a simpler way to get it right first time without all the messing about, hoping for the best, all the wasted time and money,
and of course the stress.
Most of all, I didn't know you could create a business idea around using a simple formula to
Is now the right time for your business idea to see the light of day?

Instead of just looking at what you are good at, we are going to explore
It will help you refine and clarify it to fit you more authentically or even just to come up with some new monetisation options you may not have though of.
Whatever our situation, att the end of it, you will have at least one viable idea to work with, but I know you will be buzzing with lots more
And I really love it when people opt for working to their strengths instead of wasting time trying to better their weaknesses.
That route is such a wast of energy and just makes you annoyed because you are setting yourself up to fail each and every time you go there.
Why not choose the easier path?
But for sure, this journey is definitely not for everyone. It won't be for you if you don't believe it is possible because the very first thing you need is faith in yourself.
All your obstacles can be overcome very easily if you are prepared to put in some effort
But, worry not because
You will be able to finish the course and come up with at least one viable business idea and be able to go forward with your first fledgling product or service.
If you would like some real world inspiration you can read more about real people on my case study page.
Real people who have successfully taken the leap and taken action on their own brilliant business idea.
Some have also taken some pretty unique routes as well which might make you go "well I would never thought of that one"
By you being bold enough to ask about what you don't know, you can really help others as well who are less confident about asking.
