  • Not being clear about mission vision and purpose
  • Understanding finances
  • Having the right policies and guidance in place for compliance to start your business

One start-up we helped was failing. Cashflow was sporadic and money management wasn’t great. Our client went from 4 months in arrears, not being able to pay the rent to 110k turnover in only 8 months. See more case studies here.

With the use of Toni’s BLEND model we can identify and unlock those areas for further development to set you on your way.

“Due to her strategic expertise and guidance, within one week of me implementing the plan mapped out by Toni, my business soared, and I am so grateful! I highly recommend Toni McLelland MSc! She has literally helped me scale my business AND a high ROI was achieved within the first month of hiring her! Definitely worth the investment.”

Stella Amor Independent Consultant HR plus D&I

“My full ROI came in the third month of our working together and before I finished her initial programme. I could not recommend Toni McLelland highly enough as a compassionate coach, accountability partner and mentor. Her business knowledge, DEIB approach and proven strategies work!!!”

John Espirian

“Toni gave me practical, honest advice in a 1-to-1 consultation about how to think about a new revenue stream for my business. She lives up to her billing of being a "Critical Friend", and I'd recommend anyone to speak with her if they need no-nonsense direction for their business. Thank you, Toni.”

Diana Osagie Author of ‘Courageous Leadership’

“We had a coaching session, then a meal and my business life changed, what greater recommendation can I give? The chance to bounce ideas with her, talk things through in a safe but stretching space- it allowed me to make the changes necessary to move my business forward. Toni is funny, friendly and an expert at what she does. Don’t baulk at the price, this level of expertise is valuable, if you want diamonds you can’t expect to pay Poundland prices! I love working with her... you will too.”
