the BUSINESS ZONE
Gold star business support, advice & networking to accelerate your success.
This is your small-group business school … with Bells on.
Small. Intimate & Tailored to you.
This is your place to have deep and powerful business conversations with our intimate community of like-minded, driven, entrepreneurs.
It’s a safe, confidential, space filled with experienced entrepreneurs to help you learn and get answers – fast.
So that you smash your goals whilst running your business in a way that feels right to you.
Ultimately, we all want each other to feel happy and be successful.
We keep our numbers small so you can build meaningful relationships, be seen and heard, and get tailored advice & support. Plus we pre-screen everyone to make sure that the fit is absolutely right.
In The Business Zone you are a person, not a number.
The Business Zone was born from our mothership Company, Green Zebra Business Solutions when we brought our Accountancy clients together and offered them unparalleled business coaching and support to really push them forward – and they loved it. We had incredible feedback and we saw amazing results.
Now it’s your turn. I want to help you achieve the same.
If you feel like you are working your @rse off in your business every single day and still not getting to where you want, now is the time to stop.
Or if you’re sick of investing in coaches and programs that don’t give you what you need, it’s time to make the switch. You deserve to get high quality support at a reasonable price.
And, if you want to feel part of a wholesome & friendly community who have your back, we are for you.
“The Business Zone is the emergency hotline I didn’t even know I needed for my business. Case in point – when I urgently needed a contract template to complete a deal – I got sent one in minutes. When I needed someone to help me with a hiring decision – I had a call a few hours later. Having a place where I can get instant feedback, cheering, advice & resources is the ultimate business support on speed dial.”

I am really passionate about small business growth and with over 26 years experience of coaching business leaders and building profitable companies, I know what it really takes to grow and scale a business.
I’ve built three of my own businesses and I’ve worked with numerous successful entrepreneurs. I have over 25 years experience in Business Coaching, Business Strategy, Business Transformation, Human Resources, Change Management, Leadership Development & Psychology and I want to share all of that with you so that you can grow your business to smash your money and lifestyle goals.
Here is what I believe:
Leadership is everything – successful entrepreneurs know exactly what they want to achieve and they are laser focused on delivering against their strategy. They aren’t run-ragged with doing everything themselves, instead, they are in calm and in control. I want to help entrepreneurs get in to the same head and heart space of feeling calm and in control.
A robust Business Community is essential to support & challenge you. It can be the make or break of an Entrepreneur. Who do you turn to? Who has your back? Who pushes you? Who do you learn from? Who wants to see you succeed as much as you do? Without these kind of people by your side you’ll likely find yourself feeling unsure, making mistakes and frustrated that your business isn’t doing better.
One Size doesn’t work. There I said it. Copying what someone else has done or following their blueprint may have worked for them, but it’s unlikely to work for you. I see so many entrepreneurs parting with thousands of pounds of hard earned cash in the hope that the next course/workshop/retreat/mastermind is going to be the silver bullet to their success – when it isn’t … because each business is different.
I know that it’s tough to find a membership that really delivers what you need – I know because I’ve searched for it in the past.
Some are just too “clicky”. Some have too broad a range of people and experience in it. Some over promise and under-deliver. Some are inconsistent. Some are jammed with aggressive sales. Some are too Corporate. Some are too top level or “woo-woo”. Others don’t go deep enough to give you what you really need whilst others are too specialist or not commercial enough.
Knowing who to turn to when you have questions like ‘should I hire or outsource; what’s the best route to market; how do I market my business and increase sales’ is tough.
Finding practical day to day advice coupled with longer term, commercial support along with a group of inspiring and driven entrepreneurs is the utopia of business support. The ideal balance is short term tactical support coupled with long term vision and planning, because in reality you need support on both fronts. Our balance of the two is what makes The Business Zone so special and unique.
Our collective of smart, like minded entrepreneurs are driven to succeed so everyone can brainstorm, debate, challenge and learn from one another’s experiences- meaning you’ll be able to get to the answer quicker, fail less and grow quicker. Our doors are open to everyone, we embrace diversity and work hard to maintain a fully inclusive culture.
As a Community, we support you to create your business legacy, one that will last for years to come, and we help you to feel ultra confident in your ability as a Business Leader to deliver it.
