Does this sound like you? Be Honest
Do you feel like life is coming at you faster than you can manage it?
Do you fear the important things are falling through the cracks?
Do you worry that what seemed temporary is now becoming permanent?
Do you wish you had a mentor to guide you along the way?
If so, you’re not alone. All of us have felt this way at one time or another.
Benefits of a Business Mentor
What others are saying
Carl is friendly, and approachable, and has a really positive attitude. He has an amazing knowledge of all things business, and has been such a great help to me, providing me with invaluable advice, and support. The start up of my business was so much easier thanks to Carl, who has the ability to make being in business seem so simple. I would recommend Carl to anyone in business, or who is thinking of starting up in business.
Highly professional and a pleasure to work with – I have known Carl on both a personal and business level for 6 years and the relationship just gets stronger / better.
Carl is focused and driven by new enterprise, and always ready for a new business challenge.
Only negative: He needs to put the kettle on more!!
Lead Project Manager
As one of our local business mentors, Carl has helped a significant number of local unemployed entrepreneurs create viable business plans and cash flow forecasts, giving them the confidence to succeed. Carl’s vast experience enables him to work with a diverse range of businesses and personality types. He works to a tight schedule and delivers on time and to a high standard. He’s a great guy and I would be more than happy recommending him to anyone.
More about your Business Mentor in Lancashire
I know what it feels like to be in over your head — to have your success outpace your ability to manage it, while still attending to the things that matter most—family, health, and community.
For many years, I, too, struggled to get off that same treadmill. All too often, my success came at the expense of my friends and family, and in 1997 the stress of success affected my health too.
As the former Managing Director of a succesful commercial finance and insurance brokerage, and now as a successful entrepreneur, I have had to face the reality that there’s is always more to do than there is time left in the day. But I also realised the end result isn’t simply to get more done in the short amount of time we have. The answer is to get the right things done in the right order.
Learning to balance my work with the other passions in my life has taken time, and I am now able to pass on some of that knowledge via coaching and mentoring.
Make time for today.
Today, I am able to manage the balance between being successful and giving back. I am a Trustee for a local charity, and although it is currently only small, we have big plans for giving back to the community.
I am also the Regional Head for the Association of Business Mentors, a non-profit organisation that wants to increase the professionalism of business mentors across the country.
I am the founder of Bradex Business Solutions a group of impassioned business mentors that are excited to help people and businesses just like you.
I have been with my wife, Clare, for over 15 years. ( I know what your thinking that’s two life sentences with good behaviour but she understands me) We have one son and two grandchildren. We live just outside of Manchester, in Ramsbottom.
