The Entrepreneur's Coach 
Blaze a trail without burning out  

Amanda Barry

Running your own business is very rewarding. It's also hard. Juggling the needs of today while making good decisions about tomorrow can keep you awake at night. 

How do you deal with feeling overwhelmed? 

What about coping with the constant uncertainty?

How do you achieve your goals and enjoy the ride? 

I know these questions well.


I launched my first business in the teeth of the early 90s recession and found as the business grew, I loved the work but not the constant stress. Negative self-talk kept me company as I raced from one deadline to the next. Juggling competing priorities meant I never had time to check if where I was going fitted with what really mattered to me.  My business was successful so why wasn't I happy? 

I realised it was time to find some answers, so I started working with a business coach. Someone who had been in my shoes yet was detached enough to see what I couldn't see.

As we worked together, I learned to use my own skill and judgement more powerfully every day, leading to better decisions and choices that have stayed with me to this day. 

I was so inspired by the experience, I became a business coach myself so I could help others. 

Just like you

Now I coach entrepreneurs and freelance professionals from all walks of life and particularly love working with individuals who believe business can be a force for good, and some are specifically focused on making a positive ethical, environmental or social impact. 


I couldn't have wished for a more insightful or pragmatic approach

I found myself at a crossroads and in need of a coach to help me unravel thought processes and review priorities. I couldn't have wished for a more insightful or pragmatic approach than the one Amanda brought....Amanda encouraged and supported me to be courageous enough to consider and examine various aspects which were holding me back from achieving my goals.

This has helped me move forward with my career and personal life

Amanda and I worked together for a number of months. I found the experience to be challenging, thought provoking and positive. We developed an excellent rapport and she enabled me to both discover and explore some aspects of myself that I am not sure I was fully aware of. This has helped me move forward in both my career and personal life.

I identified clear goals for my business and how to achieve them

Running a business can be a lonely experience so having Amanda there as a sounding board has proved to be invaluable. She has helped me identify clear goals for my business and a plan for achieving them. Amanda also helped me to deal with some of the negative voices that have perhaps been holding me back. I have no hesitation in recommending Amanda's coaching services, especially if you are looking to grow your business or need to get your entrepreneurial mojo back.
