Not a business coach

Pete Matheson

Sharing what I’ve learnt with new and small businesses owners to help them grow. But definitely not a business coach.

Talk to me

Head over to our Facebook group to talk to likeminded business owners and ask your questions or consider becoming a Patreon to get some more hands on help with your own business issues. 

This is me.

What I do

This website is a natural progression of my YouTube channel, where I continue to share my journey as a business owner. Combine this with frustration over self-proclaimed ‘business coaches’, none of whom actually run a successful business themselves!

I decided to create this space to share more detail, to help new and small business owners. No bullshit, no positive memes about mindset, just honest, practical advice that I’ve collected over my time of running a £1m+ turnover business.
