Mentoring StartupsI'm not a career business consultant and believe in mentoring startups to provide individuals who are passionate about their business the skills to succeed.

Small Business Startups
Do you have new business ideas? Creating your own business from the ground up can be very rewarding - and not just in the financial sense - but having been through the process of starting a new business myself, I know it can also be a very lonely road, especially if you are an individual starting up on your own.

Are you out of your comfort zone?

When you are starting a business for the first time you often find yourself on a day-to-day basis having to undertake new areas of the operation for which you may have no previous experience. If you find yourself out of your 'comfort zone' it can often make it difficult to focus on what is important in your business. The key is not to panic but to remain focussed on your personal and business goals.

Having built up a highly profitable car insurance business from nothing, I know first-hand just how difficult this can be and I decided to launch ARWood Consulting with a view to providing the support and help you are looking for, not only with the 'nuts and bolts' of starting a business but to also provide you with a confidential mentoring service to give you the support you will need to deal with the challenges that lie ahead as the business begins to grow.

Are you passionate about your business?

When starting out you probably have loads of new business ideas and you are going to be passionate about what you are doing, well at least with the aspects of the business that you feel confident with! If this is not the case then you are probably not going to be successful. However almost always with new business start-ups, the fallout from this energetic passion and drive is a dislike of being told what to do by others. As a successful entrepreneur myself, I totally understand those feelings and respect you for that.

Mentoring is the way forward

If you are not passionate about your product and do like being told what to do, you are probably not being successful and it might be time to quit and find yourself a job working for someone else! Equally, career consultants in corporate business like telling people what to do as they almost always think that they know best. I'm not a career business consultant and believe whole heartily in mentoring.

By mentoring rather than dictating, I can empathise with you and your business needs. I understand that this is your business and that you are passionate about it. In the end, the business decisions are your decisions and my role is to support you all the way in making the right decisions for you and your business by imparting my expertise and knowledge of running a successful business so that you can also achieve your own goals and targets, both professionally and personally.

A detail orientated highly focused and inspirational leader. Results driven with a consistent and energetic style."
