"The more I practice, the luckier I get".

There have been times in my life where the practice has been hard. There's been no winning, and simply turning up has been the only thing I've been able to do that day.

But, you persevere. And I did. And that practice has paid off.

With help, I've built a business that enables me to live a balanced, purposeful, fun life.

As a business owner myself, I've been through the highs and lows that you'll be experiencing.  I've enjoyed growing successful businesses and I've learnt a lot from the failures along the way.

I know what it takes. But, I also know how important it is to build a business that works for you and provides you with the life you want.  Not what everyone else thinks you should be doing but the way you want to run it."

One of the earliest lessons I learned is that everything is easier with a team.  I'm lucky to have one of the best to work with.

Hannah Illingworth, Business Manager and reality checker!


Hannah operates the day to day running of the business.   She makes sure Ash and his clients are where they are supposed to be and manages the nitty gritty detail (that Ash hates) so the business runs smoothly.

Hannah runs her own Virtual Assistant business, has a background in managing teams in difficult environments and is a musician in the Army Reserves.

Being a business owner, Army reservist (and Army wife) and mum to three kids isn't enough to keep her busy so she also is the proud mum of several cats!

Shirley was instrumental in setting up the Business Clubhouse and marketing my book so it reached No.1 in the Amazon charts.

Now, Shirley is my co-host on the Winning at Business Podcast.  She shares her wealth of experience with business owners and keeps me from getting bored of the sound of my own voice!

Shirley has a marketing background, has run several businesses (one of which she sold during lockdown) and passionate about the psychology of buying behaviour and drivers.

Bobby & Lily

These are our Bedlington Terrier x Whippet puppies.  AKA Beddy Whippets or Whiplingtons.

They are chief motivators, distractions and keep us on our toes every minute of the day.  A lot of our meetings take place at home - It's probably helpful if you like dogs!
