You have developed valuable knowledge and experience in your chosen industry and believe it is time to take that leap of faith by setting up your own business.
But where do you start?
There’s a wealth of opportunity for you out there, you just need to know where to look.
It’s an opportunity that has the potential to lead you to financial security and a much increased quality of life in a relatively short space of time.
People who enter coaching in later life already have a vast wealth of experience, credibility, people skills and contacts to enter the market. I see my role as supporting you in rediscovering the fun and buzz of learning new skills to guide others and secure your financial future.
The Business Planning Academy supports Coaches and Experts in the PRIME of their lives to build profitable online businesses whilst following a lifestyle of their choice.

The material that I am supplying to help you along this journey is divided up into two main areas:
1 - The Blog
The Business Planning Academy blog is really more than a blog… it is an ever-growing knowledge base. To help you find information quickly, I’ve split up the blog into common topics. Simply click on the topic of interest to you and find any article I’ve written on it. Being a member of the Academy also has its advantages, as the meaty content to some of my blog posts are only available to members!
2 - The Academy
The Business Planning Academy is an exclusive member’s area, where we really get serious about implementing the strategies, checklists, courses and the Action Plans that I’ll be sharing with you, to make your life easier and more productive whilst you build a business online.
We also have a member only support community and regular Office Hours calls, to ensure you travel this journey successfully.
I want to be straight up with you about this website… my goal is for you to become a member of the Business Planning Academy. I believe that it is important that we are able to share our experiences, support each other and have some fun at the same time, because setting up any business can be scary and bewildering. It is also exciting and very rewarding. The Academy is obviously a part of my own business, but at the same time, this is where I spend my time actually delivering.
In order to get started with the Academy, you need to have certain basics in place. Namely:
These things are a requirement. You pretty much can’t get off the ground without each one. Skip one and it’d be like trying to drive a car with less than four wheels on it. There are a huge range of tools you can buy down the road to make life easier… but these five things you need immediately.
I call it the “Business Planning Starter Kit” and you can find out more about the starter kit when you become a free member of the Academy.

It’s very likely I started not too far from where you are now. I was working full-time at my day job, getting paid decently – but nowhere near the level I wanted. And certainly not with the freedom and impact I was craving.
Up to my late 40’s I worked in a number of small businesses holding senior management sales & marketing positions and putting all my effort in to growing sales…..for the owner of the respective business.
I was then made redundant, so I set up my own business and found a totally rewarding new experience in “Business Support”, inspiring start-ups and growing businesses by sharing my knowledge and adding value to their goals and aspirations.
During this time I also followed the so called gurus on the internet that in the majority of cases were there to sell theirs and other guru’s products. I have to admit I was at times susceptible to buying the “shiny” products but like most of these courses there was little financial reward as you were given only part of the blueprint. Yes, I have made some small amounts of money through affiliate marketing but waaaay too small to make a living.
More recently I began working with one of the Prince of Wales charity’s that helped people over 50 to start up a business. I delivered three day workshops where clients created a robust business plan which set them off on their new journey as older entrepreneurs. You could say that this was my epiphany moment.
It is at this point that Prime Results Academy developed as a business. My mission was to use the key online marketing techniques and work with Coaches and Experts who are over 50 and want to build their own business in a field which they are passionate about and are looking for more ways to attract and work with their clients.
Aside from that, I live in Beverley, in a beautiful part of East Yorkshire. I am married to a wonderful lady and I’m a very proud dad to two daughters who have now left home…I think. I am a husband, dad, business owner, blogger, and consultant. In that order.
