I know that choosing to work with a consultant and business coach is a big step. Finding someone you can trust with your martial arts business is tricky, especially as many make big promises that aren’t always easy to keep.
You can be assured of an honest approach, so here is a little bit about me which should answer some questions you might have...
I understand that the martial arts is more than just sport, fighting or self-defense. Martial arts teaches about life. It is about finding out more about your own self and learning ways of expression. I began my training in Shotokan Karate and now hold the rank of Nidan in Shaolin Kempo. Not only do I find enjoyment in teaching martial arts, but also in helping others to teach its benefits and share their passion.
I am the owner of White Lion Media, a successful digital content creation company that was established in 2017. I also hold the position of Community Manager for Real Python, where I manage online content and social media. I have experience as a marketing consultant, including digital marketing, and writing, having authored both fiction and non-fiction books.
I worked in nursing for many years, which enhanced my skills in professionalism, attention to detail, critical thinking, compassion, time management, and communication. I was also a stay-at-home Dad for 5 years, which allowed me to also develop skills in conflict management, problem-solving, mentoring, negotiation and managing finances. Don’t underestimate how much we can all learn from children!
My passion is encouraging others to get into martial arts, as I believe anyone can benefit from it. By helping schools run successful businesses, more people can be reached. From business growth, to attracting more students, converting leads and retaining students, my consulting services can help new schools or existing schools that have plateaued, to grow. My aim is to provide knowledge and tools for school owners, to help them succeed on their own.
If you think we might be a good fit for each other, or want an initial chat about the problem you're having in your business, then please get in touch.
