I’m an entrepreneur, public speaker and the author of #1 bestselling books ‘Stop Talking, Start Doing’ and ‘Do Less, Get More’. In 2015 I was awarded an MBE for ‘Services to Business and Entrepreneurship’ and was recently named one of the UK’s Top 20 Influential Entrepreneurs by The Sunday Times.

Born in the US and raised in the UK, I studied at the London School of Economics before becoming the only female boxing promoter in the UK, representing World Champion Chris Eubank and working with the infamous Don King before starting my own PR company helping grow the Dyson brand from around Sir James Dyson’s kitchen table.

I was part of the founding team at with Sir Bob Geldof and started one of the first social networks, MyKindaPlace, eventually selling it to BSkyB.

Next I headed up investment fund Bright Station Ventures before starting the award-winning, UK’s #1 website for small businesses. At Smarta we helped more than 12 million people into business and grew an active online community of over 500,000 small businesses.

I’ll help you unlock your full potential: to build a better business; stop trading time for money; make serious money online and be free to live how you choose.

I’ll show you how to take the skills, knowledge and expertise you already have; to use the smartcuts I’ve mastered to become a recognised expert in your field, create epic digital products and sell them to 100,000s of people; grow a digital audience and mailing list of raving fans around your true passion; and create an authentic personal brand to create demand and charge a premium for what you do.

If you’re looking for practical, results-orientated breakthroughs in a fun, compassionate but no-nonsense environment, come say hi.
