They started working with Denise in mid-2015 and she quickly gave them the confidence they needed to take the next step their business needed.
“Denise made us realise that we really wanted the growth, but that we had to gain back control of our business and our lives,” Lisa said.
Lynn knows that she and Lisa wouldn’t have been able to scale up the business as quickly if it weren’t for Denise. “She really helped us make the important decisions. We talked through issues and she asked the right questions. There was no time for procrastinating with Denise holding us accountable and moving us on.”
Within 15 months, Lynn and Lisa had moved to a larger office and increased their team from 5 to 11 staff which enabled them to maintain their impressive 25% business growth.
“Denise really helped with our recruitment and team-building through the Strengthsfinder tools,” Lynn said. “Once our team was in place, we were able to quickly identify who should focus on which clients and which areas of the business.”

Lisa added, “This not only keeps our employees happy, as they’re working to their strengths, but it also means that we’re offering our clients the best people to meet their needs.”
With a high-performing team in place, Lisa and Lynn’s work life balance dramatically improved too.
“For the first time since launching our business four years ago, we both went on major holidays this summer with no email contact. I couldn’t have imagined doing this 18 months ago!”
