Get a simple plan to help you show your business who's the boss

Is building and growing your business a constant battle with overwhelm?

Building and growing your small business is tough. You have to look after a million things. There are never enough hours in a day. You can’t afford to outsource everything, you don’t know how to do half of the rest of it, and you have to wade through acres of hype and hard sell to find the good stuff.

While you’re spinning your wheels, the pressure is mounting to get more clients, more sales – but that never happens fast enough. And while you’re running at a hundred miles an hour your life is slipping away.

And maybe you have friends and family giving you "helpful" advice like "get a real job!"

So how do you deal with overwhelm? How do you decide what to do next – and when you do, how do you go about doing it?

There's always a way out of the maze, but when you're overwhelmed, you don't even have time to look for it.

There is a way out

The way out of overwhelm - and the way to get stuff done - has three parts:

  • First, you need a system to organise everything you need to do. Without this, you're just dealing with chaotic heaps of stuff competing for your attention.
  • Then you need to understand what needs to be done. If you don't, you will never know whether something is being done well or not.
  • Finally, you need to get stuff done. You can outsource it or you can do it yourself. If you need to do it yourself, you will need step-by-step guides.

You can have access to find all of that stuff here. Drawing on Neville Chamberlain's guides to building a business, including his Tornado Method.

No hype. No hard selling.
(I promise)

Just information you can use to build and grow your small business.

I know what it's like going from technical specialist to business owner. There's so much you are supposed to know, and you're not sure which bits apply to you.

It's easy to get caught up with shiny new tools (or shiny new marketing tactics!).

There's a lot you could do, but knowing where to focus is hard. And you want someone who can guide you without any pushy selling or false promises.

Get your life back!

It's all about getting stuff done, without eating into your personal time (remember that?)

It's frustrating not knowing what should get your attention.

You don't want to let procrastination hold back your business. At the same time, you don't want to put important things in the background, only to end up with the pressure of a deadline.

My story: from IT expert to business advisor

 Anthony English 

 Business Coach 

I grew up as a techie and loved it. But when I made the switch from software and systems expert to consultant, I had to learn the hard way that my clients didn't really want my technical expertise. And that was a shocker!

What your clients really need are solutions to their business problems. They want an advisor who they can trust to cut through the techno-speak; recommend the best action, and make sure it works.

Because their job is to run a business. Ours is to apply the right technology and make it work seamlessly to achieve their business goals.

Once I understood that, I went from IT guru to a trusted advisor for their business.

I now help IT experts make the same transition. Whether you're a solopreneur or you run an IT services business—if you're struggling to get business for your IT business, I can help.

What others are saying


Anthony is an astute observer of people and problems. He not only spends time trying to understand the true business problem stopping people, but he also genuinely cares. 

I recommend you take any opportunity to get to know Anthony, and also consider hiring him to accelerate your learning curve tremendously.

Anthony's insights and willingness to go above and beyond helped give me the confidence I needed to focus on the things that can grow my business, rather than simply treading water. I wanted to move from client work to products. 

He believed in my idea more than I did, and it paid off!

He's not only incredibly motivating but also gives you small, actionable steps to take so you can start improving your business without feeling overwhelmed.


Anthony listened to my work situation and then made some suggestions on how I could pivot and build new networks as well as restructure and repackage the value I provide to clients.

What I particularly liked was that he was straightforward, he spoke directly and expressed it in a way that made total sense - and in fact, confirmed that my gut was telling me that I had to make some changes however, I came away from the conversation positive and uplifted.


It's music to my ears when someone tells me I'm doing something wrong. As an entreprenuer, I appreciate a different perspective, especially from someone who has a lot of experience.

Anthony is one of those individuals that is not afraid of approaching the subject, and can tell you what is wrong with grace. Over a live video chat, Anthony was able to discuss my current business situation, and provided ACTIONABLE advice that may be seemingly simple, but are large value adds.

Specifically, he was able to point out ways in which I can get in front of the desired audience that never even cross my mind!

Frankly, at first I was skeptical about what Anthony could tell me, especially given his heavy IT background, but business knowledge is transferrable among various industries, and he's clearly worked with many industries. He's humble, easy to talk to, and has many creative solutions to offer. Thanks Anthony!


Anthony's insights and initiatives in creating and sustaining new sales growth transcend into all areas of business. His consulting expertise will not only help you clearly identify your target market, but also how to capture it!

Anthony's recommendations and support are one of the key successes in my own personal and business growth, and I believe he will do the same for you! He is a terrific business coach and one of the most generous human beings I have ever met!!


I approached Anthony with a specific problem. "How do I describe myself at networking events that create interest?" After having worked in many industries and picking up several skills, it was hard to even describe what I do.

About 15 minutes in our discussion, Anthony was able to synthesize my value and describe it in such a way that I could have never done on my own. Now, he is helping me bring that message in front of the right audience. Anthony's service is highly recommended for the technical consultant who struggles with communicating his value in simple business terms.


Anthony’s great - pleasant, insightful, valuable. Gotten something out of every consulting session, article, video, or book. Recommended.


Before - I had some clarity in my direction, but I was missing the key insight that allowed me to make a major shift in how I saw my service offering.

With Anthony's coaching I was able to gain laser focus on our new direction : "Your business visualized on a single page."

The outcome of my discussions with Anthony is a lot of clarity and new initiatives in branding and positioning my business for future success.

My business now has a lot of clarity: I know who I serve, I know why I do what I do and I know what problems I solve. I can clearly describe to my ideal client the true value of working with me.


Anthony’s coaching has been invaluable. He has stopped me in my tracks more than once and forced me to reassess my market strategy. He questioned who my real target audience was, helped me to realize what the million dollar questions I should be asking really were, and niche down with concrete goals in mind.


I contacted Anthony to thank him for a sound piece of advice he gave to small businesses, and the conversation quickly turned into something that I couldn't put a price tag on – Truly priceless. Golden information that I'll immediately study and apply to my business.

Anthony opened my eyes on and helped me re-evaluate some essential aspects of my business. Bonus point: The conversation was extremely enjoyable!

If you need an exceptional coach to guide you through your marketing and sales process, Anthony IS your guy. 


I saw an article written by Anthony and found it extremely interesting. I didn't know that it was only the start. We chatted and he helped me find strengths and weaknesses of my business, asking the right questions and leading me through an honest and effective analysis.

He understood my goals and suggested some great strategies to gain more confidence in myself as a solopreneur, which I believe won't only benefit me, but also my clients.

Anthony is a great coach: kind, fun, but also extremely professional.

He goes straight to the point and makes thing look easy - as they really are. I couldn't recommend him more, specially to entrepreneurs willing to expand their business and make the most of their time. Grazie, Anthony!

"What do you do and how can you help me?"

Although I've worked with dozens of business owners - most of them in the IT / software space - I may or may not be able to help you.

My business coaching relies entirely on my good reputation, so it's not in my interests (or yours!) for me to take your money if I can't be fairly confident of a good result.

So, let's reduce the risk for both of us and schedule a call.
