Small business coaching and consulting
The Hive founder Jess Sizeland is also a coach and consultant for female-led small businesses, blending coaching (accredited by the Association of Coaching UK), mentoring and advisory services with a positive, solutions-focused approach.
Coaching and consulting are here for all women, whether you’re a member of the Hive or not!
If you’re running your own business and feel a bit lost or overwhelmed, you’re not alone. Perhaps…
You’ve got loads of ideas but struggle to know where to start.
You’re overwhelmed with where you should be spending your time, energy and money to make your business a success.
One day you feel on top of the world, and nothing can stop you, and the next you have zero motivation and doubt everything you do.
You’re psyching yourself out of taking your business to the next level thanks to a lack of confidence and feeling like an imposter.
You’re stuck and don’t know what to do about it.
You’re a bit lonely working by yourself and wish you had someone who ‘gets it’ on your team?
There IS something you can do about this.
I work with women just like you. Together, we…
Overcome and reframe those negative thoughts that are making you feel like a fraud and not enough (spoiler alert: you most definitely ARE enough, but we’ll work on that).
Plan and set realistic, achievable goals for your business.
Reignite the passion you may have lost a little along the way, remembering WHY you started your business in the first place.
Create a space for you, where you’re free to be open and honest about your thoughts and feelings, safe in the knowledge that you’re in a judgement-free zone.
Hold you accountable to your plans, and build your confidence in your ability to see them through.
The support I give you will be bespoke and targeted to you and your specific business goals, delivered on a one-to-one basis.
I’ll be your biggest cheerleader (but also give you a kick up the bum if that’s what’s needed!)
I’ll encourage you to aim higher, and I’ll be right there celebrating your strengths and successes alongside you. And I’ll share my experience and knowledge along the way, helping you to create the business that you want, on your terms, in your way.
I’ve founded my own events business and consultancy, launched and grown my membership community for women in small businesses, had a successful career in London as an Events Director, AND I’m a mum to Autistic twins. All of this has put me in a unique position where I really understand the difficulties women face working for themselves.
I’ve bootstrapped my way to building profitable, sustainable businesses, with zero startup funds on limited childcare (and sleep!). I’ve made some good decisions, and my fair share of bad ones, too. I successfully pivoted my business during COVID, and not just survived it but thrived, increasing profits and creating additional revenue streams, too. And I’ve built up an impressive little black book of businesses and recommendations for you to work and collaborate with.
I know that place of being overwhelmed, time and money poor, and feeling like my confidence and lack of knowledge is holding me back from really pushing my business forwards.
That’s why, as a coach, I’m here to support and guide you when you need it most, giving you the space and time you need to fully explore your thoughts and feelings and find clarity amongst the noise.
I have never had any coaching before but Jess was brilliant, kind, friendly and so easy to talk to and open up about ideas. Found it so helpful to have some guidance, I felt like I achieved more in an hour with Jess than I have done in months sitting down trying to think where to go next with me and my business.
Investing in yourself can feel like a huge expense when your funds are limited and you’ve got a long list of things to pay for. But working with me will give you more confidence and tangible action plans for:
Overcoming major mindset blockers that may be holding you back.
Brand development and design.
Event production - from concept to delivery.
Building and growing a membership-based business.
Sales, marketing and sponsorship packages.
Social media strategy for your business.
How to build relationships with fellow small business owners through networking and collaboration opportunities.
Sound good? Here’s how we can work together.
Book a free 20-minute discovery call
The first step to working together is a free 20-minute Zoom call to get to know each other a bit more, explore what you hope to get from coaching, and how I can support you. No hard sell, no obligations - let's just chat. Book in your call here.
A one-hour session, either via Zoom or in-person at Birch Community in Cheshunt, Herts, where we’ll delve into the issues you are currently struggling with in your business, identify where you are feeling stuck and work together on a plan of action to get you moving forward. Think of this as a quick burst of positivity and motivation to pick you up when you need it the most!
3 x one-hour sessions, once a month over 3 months either via Zoom or in-person at Birch Community in Cheshunt, Herts. This package gives us the chance to go deeper into your mindset and to start shifting those negative, self-limiting thoughts that are stopping you from moving forwards. We’ll work together to plan short and longer-term goals for your business, so you have ultimate clarity on the direction you’re heading. We’ll also spend time brainstorming ideas for new revenue streams that you can explore, fleshing them out so they go from an idea to a reality.
And I don’t just leave you hanging between sessions! The Build-Me-Up package also includes follow-up from me via WhatsApp between our meetings so that I can help to keep you accountable, as well as providing support as and when you need it. I’ll also provide you with any introductions, resources and workbooks you need too.
