Paul’s advice was a game changer
My business partner and I were at a crossroads. Business was great, but we both felt that the operations and execution of the business was in a shambles. We were so busy tending to everyday business that it was hard to stay focused on how or what we should do to make our business more operationally efficient – which leads to more profitably. We came to the decision that we needed help. This is when we found Paul and Business Tree. Paul, through his analysis and our conversations, identified that we were getting away from our core business. We were trying to be everything to everyone. Through Paul’s guidance, my partner and I made some tough decisions. After a couple of major changes, our business is now where it should be. Paul’s advice was a game changer.
Paul has a great ability to enable transformational change in his clients, their teams and businesses alike. The combination of Paul’s warm yet professional coaching style creates a sense of genuine support that underpins all of his client engagements. His clients are easily able to open up, challenge their current ways of thinking and become aware of new possibilities for forward action. I would highly recommend Paul as an extremely competent professional coach of anyone wanting to achieve sustainable positive change in a personal or professional capacity.

Paul is excellent for helping me maintain constant awareness of the development of my business
I’ve worked with Paul for close on six years now. Since working with him, I’ve learned how to communicate clearly with clients about money, be realistic about the work I can take on, and most important, learned how to say “no” to clients who won’t be a good fit for me.
Paul is excellent for helping me maintain constant awareness of the development of my business. I have better work-life boundaries after working with him, and enjoy my work much more.
Paul has helped me not only develop my business in the highly competitive construction market, but most importantly maintain the high level of customer satisfaction my clients have become accustomed to.
I have no hesitation in recommending Paul’s company and I highly recommend him.
