Are your electricity

and water costs

out of control? more about a solution we have.

My forte is working with individuals, small businesses and start-ups
to help them clearly define their personal and business goals,
and then developing SMART* strategies to achieve them.

* SMART Goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed

"A solid and relevant foundation is an essential starting-point
or any venture you may be involved in or anticipating."

How I can help you...

Electricity and water monitoring and management.
The world-wide "shift" toward renewable energy and efficient usage of scarce resources is gaining momentum. Perhaps fueled by a combination of two driving forces? A realisation of what of what scarce and non-renewable actually mean as well as the sharp increase in the costs of electricity and water.

Over the past few years I have been very involved in monitoring water and electricity usage and implementing strategies to manage and, where possible, reduce usage and costs. From initial site visits to sourcing, commissioning and management of automated meter reading (AMR) systems, 

With regular information on your usage patterns
your get massive savings and even leak/wastage detection...

Solar Electricity
Last year I oversaw the installation of an 18kWh photovoltaic system and can comfortably say this is a great investment. There's no longer the need to defer installation with excuses like "we're waiting for the price to drop". It already makes sense!

Web sites and Social Media
I enjoy using a very effective process whereby we create (or re-do) your website as the basis for clarifying your business objectives and direction, and answer two key questions... "what do I really want?" and "what question is my business the perfect answer to?"

We kick-off by being crystal clear about where you want to be, so you can see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, feel it! Then we work together for a few hours a week developing and implementing the steps required to reach various milestones, and from there the adventure continues....

I take care of all the admin and back-office "stuff" (yes, stuff is a technical term I use a lot) like registering domains, setting-up your email, designing and creating your actual website, hosting and even search engine optimisation.

Then comes Social Media integration (FaceBook, Twitter, Tumblr Etc), Mailing List building, Newsletters and Mailshots and overall relationship-building with your Ideal Clients.

This process is an integral part of updating your business plans, defining yardsticks and achieving goals. And along the way we'll tackle your target market, product mix, margin analysis and all the other "accounting stuff"

Grow YOUR business by using my Knowledge, Experience
and Network to help you FOCUS on what YOU want...

What qualifies me to help you?...

My background is varied and diverse, coming as I do from an entrepreneurial family. I have always worked in businesses I've owned and started (either fully or with partners.) These have included fast food franchises, wholesaling truck tyres, video and audio post-production. I've been involved in live radio and television broadcasting for many years, setting-up several radio stations (Solid Gold, Buwa FM, East Wave and Mix FM) and was part of the team that got South Africa's first and most successful community televison station off-the-ground (Soweto TV), and, more-recently... full-time parenting :-)

This diverse set of skills enables me to assist passionate people with the fun, exciting (and for some, scary) start-up phase of small businesses. I recently sold my main business and took a sabbatical to spend lots of time with my three young children. Now, my time is divided amongst several smaller business ventures with some spare time for photography, project management, consulting and writing. I also make models of luxury houses (during the design phase) for people who prefer "touchy feeley" to virtual 3D modeling.

In addition to my personal work interests, I served as Secretary on the School Governing Body of Bryandale Primary School and am currently Chairman of the SGB of Bryanston High School where I've been actively involved in some exciting projects like rainwater harvesting, electricity monitoring and savings, print and copying overhaul, tuck shop systems implementation and a myriad of other rewarding projects (including selling advertising on billboards and in the Newsletter.)

I now use all of this varied experience to provide one-on-one Life Coaching and Small Business Consulting services aimed at helping you to live the life you want.

"What stage of development are you, or your business, in?"

How can I assist you to live the life you want?
My interesting journey has provided me with a multitude of skills.... in addition to being an Evolved Life Coach I have managed a fleet of hundreds of vehicles, sold tyres, run several fast-food franchises, starting and run radio stations, TV outside broadcasts, done some writing, photography, model building, and still find time to be a full-time dad and School Governing Body Chairman.

Most mornings you'll find me enjoying my coffee, morning paper and sudoku at my local Mugg & Bean and then meeting Clients, developing strategies, creating websites and all the other fun stuff I love doing.

Contact me now - and let's get you to where you've always dreamed of being.
