“I was working full time on the tools, every day of the week. At the end of the day I was just overworked. Just generally having no idea or outlook where my business was going.
Before I met Terence I had no idea what a business coach was, I just thought it was something in the corporate world that didn’t flow on to small business and particularly trades.
Working with Terence, has given me time and flexibility. Time to spend in my personal life with my wife. Time to be able to choose when I’m working and when I’m not, he’s helped me set up systems so that I can manage the different aspects of the business and surround myself with the right people to get the job done. If you want to achieve the results you’re setting out for give Terence a call, it’ll be the best thing you’ve ever done.”

“Not knowing where my business was actually going, I didn’t know whether to keep quoting jobs or to be out on the floor and actually do the jobs myself or potentially employ someone that can help out with that.
I worked with some business coaches before that seem a little bit sketchy. I was really comfortable around Terence and he was pushing me hard to get those changes underway for the benefit of the business. My biggest challenge in my business was time management and working with Terence has really helped. Especially in the way of setting aside time in actually working on the business instead of in the business and to actually do things that are important, instead of just having my day scattered and not having a really good structure. I knew working with Terence was making a big difference in my business when I put on some new staff that actually helped free up some more of my own time to do other more important things in the business. The big difference was, I had more confidence in approaching new customers and clients that I may not usually approach.
I’ve been working with Terence now for a while, and he’s helped me build some confidence and helped out with my cash flow. He’s really helped out and figured out ways really to get back some time for myself and in the business. I would advise anyone that is looking to work with Terence, just have a go. You’ve got nothing to lose and so much more to gain.”
“So previously before we met Terence I was working about 12 hours a day, Monday to Friday, and then half a day Saturday, and then coming home doing quotes, which is all a little bit too much and probably burning the candle at both ends.
So we met Terence through a business networking group, through BNI. Once I started to get to know Terence and his back story, it’s like oh okay wow he really can help us and he has had similar experiences to us. The best thing is with Terence he’s not pushy and you can call him whenever you want, and he gets it. I feel like the point where it started to make a big difference was quite recently when we started to do some really hard hitting things like tax planning, looking at our profit, our margins and markup, our costs. Learning the difference between margin and markup. I feel like that’s been the part where it’s made the most difference and we’ve seen some real differences in the business.
Working with Terence had actually given us the confidence to take those steps. We’ve genuinely had times off on the weekends. Best advice you can give someone who’s thinking about working with Terence is just give it a go.”
