How I work

I have taken everything I have learnt in business and what I am learning on my MBA to develop a structure that I use to ensure I am performing at my very best and clear what is going on in my business and what I need to be doing on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis.
I get that every individual and business is different and has different requirements. Part of this process is going to be focussed on the operational/functional side (your business) and focussed on the interpersonal/mental (you as an individual).
I offer people interested in my services a free one hour chat either face to face or on video call to find out whether we’re the right fit for a working relationship.

What I am not.

I am not an accountant, I am not a financial adviser, I am not an expert in every single area of business. You are going to probably know WAY more about your own industry than I do. I am not you parent, I am not your counsellor or therapist.

What I am.

I am an experienced, knowledgeable, friendly, fun and straight talking human. I’ve build a business from nothing and have weathered the storm of failed ventures and mistakes. I know what you need to do to get your business on track and growing. I will support you, guide you, be your shoulder to cry on BUT the transformation and change happens within you. You already have all the answers.

Why call it Cookie Jar Consultancy?

Well I assume you’ve made the obvious link to the fact that I own a bakery that makes cookies 🙂. The other reason was this: remember being a child? I am confident you would have had some kind of restriction on sweets, cakes, cookies. I know I did, my Nan had a big cookie jar on the side of her worktop, filled with yummy cookies. But it was always just out of reach and controlled. Grrrr! Now we’re adults we get to choose and so I chose the name for that very reason, I am all about you getting what you want in life, taking from the cookie jar.
