“To put your input into context, I woke up this morning a 61 year-old old git with just the mild hope that your workshop may be interesting and my new business may break even. This evening my attitude has changed to one of confidence that the new business is going to be fun, hard work and age don’t matter.” – Ian Geddes
“Just a note to say thank you for an educational, entertaining, motivational and inspirational session at the University on Thursday. I saw the business school’s ‘Dr.Dave’ on the way out and told him how frustrating it was that on most occasions sitting through dreary presentations one can’t wait to get out, and on the VERY occasion that I HAD to leave early, I really was desperate to stay and enjoy the complete session…..Thanks again for your seminar; your double act was refreshingly different, effective and memorable.” - Peter Hastrop, Network Ltd.

What They Are Saying About Our Membership…
“Your service is invaluable, a business must.” - Philip Martin, Spending Review Consultants
“The Vision Day (part of the membership package) was the most valuable and productive day I have had for ages. I am leaving with a clear confident head. Thank you so much and I am truly looking forward to this time next year!” – Sue Baker, Clarity Business Financials
“I so look forward to the ‘Extraordinary’ membership pack, it always seems to arrive at just the right moment in the month when you need that extra bit of encouragement. It gives me that wonderful glowing feeling I remember when, aged 14, my copy of the ‘Jackie’ magazine would arrive!” – Jane Kenny, Kitchen Retailer
“Cheers Tim, your knowledge is incredible. From just one phone conversation we have collected an assortment of super ideas which are now placing our business in a better position. Your ‘Big Books’ are keeping us focused and moving forward.” - Broni McSweeney – Catch Fitness ~ Christchurch, NZ
“I have been running my engraved glass gift business from my kitchen table and garage for over 5 years on a part-time basis to fit around my young family. Now my children are all at school I have more time to devote to growing my business to the next stage. However what I realised during 2010 was that although I am technically a very capable glass engraver, what I was lacking were the right marketing skills and confidence to nurture and grow my business. I had developed a scatter gun approach to marketing and quickly felt defeated if I had a go at something once and it didn’t work. Much of my hard earned cash was going on marketing that just wasn’t being effective.
No-one else is going to run my business – it’s down to me and if I want to get to where I want to go, then I need help, especially as my back ground in corporate marketing and product management, in some ways has actually hindered rather than helped. There is a saying that goes when the student is ready the teacher will appear and this is pretty much what happened with Emma and Tim from The Extraordinary Coaching Company.
I became a gold member in December 2010 and since then it has helped me grow personally and deepened my understanding of what it takes to run my business successfully. Emma & Tim are perfect companions for supporting and helping me on my journey to ever greater success.
I particularly love that they deal not only with the product and the customer, but with my attitude too – if you could hear some of the conversations that I have going on in my head then you would surely understand. Also having the chance to have a full 30 minute phone-in session every month is fantastic – I use them to check out new ideas and help keep me on track. To me they are like Michel Gerber of the E-Myth fame, but with UK style and they are more fun!
Will I be continuing my gold membership? Absolutely – as far as I am concerned the monthly fee is money well invested rather than money spent – I only wish I had come across them sooner.” – Catherine Daley, Owner of Catherine Daley Designs
“Working with you and Tim is really exciting, I absolutely love it. I have learnt so much from going through only about 25% of the material you have sent me so far. My mind has been absolutely buzzing with the insights that you and Tim have given me.
You are making me think and I can really see a bright future for our business. I have already set some wheels in motion from the things I have learnt from you, and the results have been amazing.
I feel very lucky to have stumbled across The Extraordinary Coaching Company. I am really excited to have the support of two very passionate people who just don’t stop when it comes to helping me (and others) make more money.
Emma and Tim – you must be very proud of the work you do every day, you are literally helping to breathe new life into business and helping them grow. I am really looking forward to continuing to change the future of this business for the better.” – David Gillard, Serendipity Leisure Limited
“Thank you so much for your invaluable advice. My business has been running very successfully for the last eight years and I have developed my online sales steadily over that time. You pointed out that I was missing customers that I could attract by putting a simple promotion on my home page. Suddenly I was captivating the interest of many more customers out there and the orders came flooding in. My sales increased by 7% almost immediately and my website is actually talking to people!! So simple but so effective.” – Gillian Million, Million Design Company
“I had no idea there were so many things – big and small – that I could do so easily to get my business working more efficiently and profitably. What’s more, on a personal level you have really made me jump all those mental hurdles which were stopping me from moving forward, and now I feel confident and in control.” - Sandy Ruddock, The Roaring Mouse
“I run my business. I don’t want it to run me. This understanding is what sets Emma and Tim apart from so many coaches and consultants – and it’s a breath of fresh air in an often stifling arena. They have an exceptional talent for cutting to the chase. Thank you.” - Sarah Whitehead, Clever Dog Company Ltd
“What a revelation! My business had been on hold for 5 years, whilst I procrastinated about my future! After only one issue I have leapt forward with ideas and sprung into action. It was like a light bulb of inspiration, and even more awesome with the coaching option. Hope the month goes quickly for the next installment! Emma and Tim offer a down to earth service in an honest, positive and British way rather than what may initially sound like American hype. You are encouraged to achieve with practical tools and believe in yourself …very powerful. Thank you so much for unblocking me.” - Sue Chambers, Director, Wine Equals Friends, Richmond, Surrey, UK
“Tim and Emma’s ‘Finding The Hidden Money’ membership has been a Godsend for me on numerous occasions….. Their insightful and entirely pragmatic top tips, success stories and free teleseminars and downloads have significantly improved my performance as a coach and trainer…. And helped me pitch my business better too! Their positive outlook has enabled me to adopt a refreshing and innovative approach to all areas of my professional life…..particularly in areas of self belief, goal setting and identifying client needs. I thoroughly recommend them to any small business looking to improve and expand.” - Terry Mclean (Terrymclean Associates)
