I’m pleased and privileged to have helped so many people become the successful business owners or executives they were meant to be. Therefore, I thought I’d include some Business Mentor and Executive Coach testimonials for you to see that I put my money where my mouth is! (so to speak). Every single one of us is different. Whether in life or business, some of us will be more resilient than others, without a doubt.
Most of us could benefit from another point of view, a guiding hand or an experienced business person to be a ‘sounding board’ and hold us accountable.
Read more about how I’ve delivered just those very things.
"I recently used Jason to help me with driving my business forward. From the initial meeting I knew he would help me, he approached things in a way that suited me and helped make me see things in a different way, which steered me towards a stronger business model. Jason is very easy to get on with and really listens, he's the best business coach I've used and I recommend that you use him too."
"Jason is very professional and has vast experience working with a variety of people and uses different approaches depending on his mentee. I have found him a joy to work with as he really understands me and my business. He goes that extra mile to support and help and I warmly recommend him to anyone looking to grow their business."
"Jason, Having worked with you the past few months on my business it is clear how your business coaching and mentoring is having a positive impact on how I’m able to focus and grow my company. With your coaching and mentoring I’ve been able to formulate a plan on where I want RJM Digital to be over the next 1 – 5 years. You have helped me understand all the crucial elements of business, identify my company’s strengths and weaknesses, and helped me take ownership of each stage of the journey. If there are any other ambitious business owners who want clarity, accountability, and expertise in working out how to grow and expand their business, I would highly recommend Jason Cornes."
"I met Jason at a networking event and straight away I found him to be very easy to talk to and I felt immediately at ease with him. I booked a session with him and I can honestly say that now, after several sessions, I have truly found a way forward for myself and my business. After a simple question about what it was that I actually wanted, it opened the flood gates to a huge amount of possibility that was there but I hadn’t had the courage to tap into. The coaching really helped me to find perspective and clear clouds that were thick and heavy in my mind about tackling challenges and moving forward . It’s fair to say that the clarity and confidence that I have gained from Jason’s business coaching has been invaluable. Thank you Jason!!"
"I have used Jason as a Business Coach. Jason is unique in the fact that he actually listens to what the business owner requires. And does not work from a preformed business builder script.Along with his knowledge in personal psychology, he can identify problems that can be holding the business back. I can highly recommend using Jason – to develop your business. "
"I’ve worked with Jason for two years this month. When I came to Jason for help, I wasn’t entirely sure what a business coach did, I though maybe a few sessions then that was it..2 years on and I can truly say my business has gone from strength to strength, but I still need him. Jason is the person I tell all my ideas to, and bounce them off. He’s the one person that will give me an honest answer and opinion, he tells me what I need to hear, not necessarily what I want to hear. Because he’s always run his own businesses, he knows his stuff, its based on training yes, but more importantly I fell on his 30 years of experience in running his own companies. His ideas are inspiring and I can’t recommend him enough to others"
"Try some learning about YOU I set up Dominic Hill Chartered Accountants in 1992. I understand what it is like to be a small business because I am one. Sometimes you need someone outside your business with no pre-conceived ideas to open your mind to find out what you really want to achieve for yourself and also for your business and in that order. Once you have recognised what you want to achieve you can reset the destination in your life sat nav and set out in that direction. You shouldn’t and can’t re-set the sat nav without stopping to breath. Jason gives you the room to breath, think and then….. move Jason has been really motivating and he makes me smile. I really enjoy the meetings. I thoroughly recommend that you start with a 3 month program because like learning anything you need at least 3 sessions to really start to open your eyes. Why should learning about YOU be any different?"
"Jason has helped me get clear on what I really want to do, where I want to go, what strengths I have and how I can use them to achieve my goals, and encouraged me to be more proactive around my business ideas. He has a friendly and challenging attitude which has put me at ease, but also question my mindset and behaviours at the right time. I’m very glad that I’ve had the chance to work with such a great mentor."
"I have just had a personality testing session with Jason Cornes – and each of my team did too. Hugely enjoyable and insightful – all the feedback from Sophie and Chloe is immensely positive. They found it so interesting – and are already wanting to go more in depth with it. As am I. We can read up about each other’s personality and understand how the world looks though their eyes. If we all have these insights there can only be greater harmony in everything we do. I think we’ll enjoy having a giggle realising how true it all is and then use these new insights to our benefit – for the company and in our personal lives. As a manager it’s very interesting to see how we all have some traits that are alike and suit the ethos and approach of the company, as well as some that are different and useful to keep me on my toes! Brilliant job Jason. Thank you. Highly recommended to all ‘people managers’ for creating a strong and happy team environment."
"It seems to me that, for many people, working for yourself can be lonely, confusing and frustrating. After all, we’re good at doing the thing we’re good at, but not necessarily at knowing how to formulate that into a workable, competitive business. I was stuck in this position for many years, not quite confident enough to put my foot down properly, and never sure of the destination were I to do so. Working with Jason has begun to change all that. He has offered direction, focus, and an endless well of positivity, things that have been sorely lacking during my years of struggle and self doubt. His guidance has given me a level of confidence that helps me to stay motivated, even in the face of challenges under which I would otherwise have surely felt defeated, and for that I am extremely grateful. I highly recommend Jason if, like me, you are feeling determined but lost. I look upon our journey with great excitement and readiness, and can’t wait to see where it leads. Five stars indeed."
"We have been working with Jason for nearly 2 years and although we have been in business for many years and think you are going along ok, he pushed us out of our comfort zones, made us question some of our processes as when you have been in business for a long time you do get set in your ways. To rethink how to promote our business, and encouraged us to focus more on the behind the scenes tasks so that we have a clearer idea where our business is going in the years ahead. We enjoy our meetings with Jason and would recommend Jason to any business large or small."
"I have been working with Jason for about 1 year now and I find his advice and expertise second to none. He made an instant impact on my business, when we started working together, by banishing any negative thought processes and false beliefs I had about money and I saw an increase in sales. He sets achievable goals, which he also holds you accountable for and discusses any concerns and worries that I may have, always putting my mind at ease. Being a business owner himself, he really understands what it is like to run a business. I would thoroughly recommend Jason."
"We were fortunate enough to have been referred to Jason through our local BNI group. It has been an eye opening journey so far with Jason as our business mentor. Jason uses his business experience and life knowledge to guide and assist you to understand the true meaning behind ‘business’. He has taught myself and my partner that emotions do not run a business and this alone has helped us tremendously. Jason’s business mentoring is not simply him telling us what to do, it is him teaching us how and why, it is knowing we have the support there when we need it (and we have needed it!) and it is helping us to fall back in love with our business. I would recommend Jason to anyone looking to get their business back on the right track, to anyone looking to improve their lifestyle and anyone willing to listen to someone [Jason] who has been there and done that!"
"I have just completed a three months experience with Jason and I found it most beneficial. Jason is personable, knowledgeable and very cheerful. He has provided a much needed outside perspective on my family company which will undoubtedly prove more than valuable in the years to come. I also found we generated many new ideas that I could implement right away for great results. Running a business is all consuming, and to find a time and space to discuss essential concerns, plans and ideas for the present is truly precious. Jason Cornes provides this space, and I highly recommend working with him"
"I’ve used Jason’s service for over 18 months now and I have to say it’s been a game changer for my business. Jason listens and gives ideas but doesn’t tell you what to do. His approach is bespoke to every business and so you get a tailored plan not an off the shelf one size fits all. This means you’re applying ideas that really work and make a difference. I would seriously recommend Jason to any business owner who is struggling to see the wood for the trees and need a helping hand to get back on track."
"Jason has joined us in the capacity of both Business Mentor and Life Coach. Within our business he is an essential asset, his approach to business planning is focused on achieving goals by breaking them down into manageable milestones. As a personal Life Coach he has opened up some very intriguing conversations that help us to understand ourselves, our clients and business partners on a much deeper level. Our journey with Jason is still very much at its start, but we are already very happy with what he has to offer and very much look forward to where our business can go with him as part of our team."
"I highly recommend Jason as an excellent Mentor and Business Coach. He’s very perceptive, methodical an experienced. He is also challenging when necessary. I leave our meetings feeling more motivated and clear on what I’m doing in my business. I’m thoroughly enjoying working with him."
"I have been working with Jason for six months and in that time I have learnt so much and developed a lot as a person and business owner. What do I like best about working with Jason? His approach to business mentoring, which is both friendly and professional and full of valuable insights into how to successfully run and grow a business. Jason has finely-tuned listening skills and an ability to input information, process it and then output a suggestion that I would never have considered. This means he can drop a career-changing bombshell that ignites a spark that leads to a revolutionary new idea that will transform your life and business forever. He challenges my perception of what I can and can’t achieve, stretching the boundaries of what I thought was possible to the point that the sky is literally the limit! Every time I meet him I come away with my mind buzzing with new exciting ideas about how to improve my business in ways that seem obvious afterwards, but would never have occurred to me on my own. I value his contribution to my business very highly and would happily recommend his services to other businesses that need a fresh approach and guidance from someone with extensive experience of a wide variety of businesses from different sectors."
"For those of you business owners out there who think you can’t afford a business coach, think again! You are probably finding yourself in some financial difficulties at present or need a new direction. Can I really afford him, I hear you ask.? The very reason you’re running your own business, is that you want to do it your way, a leader not a follower. We all struggle from time to time and lose our way. I urge you to contact Jason. This is a man who has ‘walked the walk’! He will listen to your current situation, your goals and dreams. He will understand you and create an action plan for your success. Always there to offer you support as and when you need it. I took the leap! In just 3 months my business has grown, I now know where I’m going and where I want to be. I am attracting specific enquiries and as such I’m doing the work I love. It’s no different than using a fitness coach but for your business. Trust me, you’ll see the results"
"It is such a weight off my mind to have Jason’s ongoing support and encouragement to grow my already successful business. He has re-lit my passion for my work and my confidence has grown enormously. Firstly, I found the personality profiling exercise absolutely fascinating. Why? Because it helped me to understand why I do things in a certain way. And, how I can try different approaches to overcome everyday challenges. It’s obvious that Jason understands business. Also, it’s great to bounce my ideas around to come to conclusions needed. Jason keeps me on track and I’m more relaxed because I know I am going in the right direction. Our sessions are a combination of fun and serious moments in just the right balance. If you are a small business owner like me, I suggest you make time to meet Jason for a coffee. I’m glad I did."
"I would highly recommend Jason as a business coach. He has a key skill many coaches don’t…he listens. To who you are, what you want, what you believe in, where you are and where you want to be. He then tailors his approach to suit you. Giving a truly bespoke mentoring and coaching service that is invaluable."
"In business, sometimes you simply cannot see the wood for the trees. I can honestly say that following an initial meeting with Jason, I have a far greater appreciation and clarity of the possibilities which are open to me. Being slightly cynical of business coaches in the past, I can only say now – “Don’t knock it till you try it” – I thoroughly recommend any business having a chat with Jason Cornes."
"I’ve had more than six months of mentoring sessions with Jason so far and would highly recommend him. He is very insightful and able to apply his extensive knowledge of running a business to help others. After only 3 sessions on one area of my business, he was able to increase it’s profit by 40%. This result alone makes Jason a no-brainer when it comes to choosing a Business Coach and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their business and/or get some help and focus and move in the right direction."
"I have just signed up with Jason and I was so impressed with our first session that I offered to give a testimonial and I have recommended another business owner friend. Jason has a creative, insightful mind and gave me a good wake up call about my business! He saw what I was doing well but more importantly where I need to focus and improve. On the technical side, he has a great understanding of how to make your business work for you. On the day to day practical side he is already encouraging me to get out there and do things I should be doing. Jason is a fantastic listener and gives useful feedback in abundance. He has already spotted opportunities for my business that I hadn’t thought of. His enthusiasm and focus are infectious and I’m excited to be working with him"
"Jason is a super presenter and business coach as his testimonials will continue to endorse I’m sure. He’s very insightful and gives well considered advice to his clients . Even his pauses are instructive. He clearly knows his subject and has a lot more knowledge to offer which explains why us business owners continue to make rather uninformed decisions . If you need a Business Guru then Jason is so worth meeting up with and discussing whether there isn’t perhaps a simpler, a better, happier more productive way we can run our businesses in 2019 and beyond."
"I would recommend Jason’s Business coaching without hesitation! He has helped us change our whole mentality and see things in a completely different way. Jason has helped us start to gain the financial intelligence we never had. With his advice we have finally started to outsource the jobs that we were being bogged down with, giving us time to do the things we should be doing. If you are serious about changing your business from the hobby it started out as in to the serious business you want it to be, speaking with Jason could just be the game changer you need! Thank you Jason!"
"Jason is a coach who actually LISTENS! – I would highly recommend his services to anyone in business. Jason gave me the courage to scrap my old business identity and to start afresh. He supported me through the whole business of putting things into place properly rather than haphazardly as was done before."
"Jason has been the best investment not only for my business, but for my work-life in general. I feel so much more confident about pricing and the structure of my business, which is paying off greatly. I would highly encourage anyone who is interested in working with Jason to book him right now for a discovery meeting."
"In the 6 months since I enlisted his help to grow my business sales have almost doubled! He has been the most valuable investment my business has made, helping me to focus my time, money and staff resources more wisely, and strategically. He is skilled at quickly identifying priorities and keeping me focused. Jason understands how to grow a business. I highly recommended him"
"I didn’t think I needed a business mentor, but then things got really tough. I was very low, lost my way and my focus on what I was doing and which direction I was going in. I spent my days doing the wrong things, chasing down the wrong types of leads and getting nowhere fast. I knew in my mind what I had to do but didn’t have a clue how (or the courage) to go about it. Others had told me how Jason had changed their business and personal lives for the better so I bit the bullet. From the first meeting I felt empowered to make change. From meeting three even though most of the changes made were subtle and behind the scenes so to speak, the RIGHT activity, calls and leads started coming in. Jason helped me changed my mindset and beliefs and in turn that changed my business for the better. Jason listens but doesn’t force his opinions on you, he offers them, asks questions and makes you question and question again what you’re saying is right for you. He doesn’t insist you do something you’re not comfortable with or you don’t believe in, unless it’s an essential part of moving forward. I enjoy our meetings immensely. We set action points and I look forward to putting these into place because I can see they make a difference. I’m now working on a new website based on the positive changes we’re making and I’m so excited. I would happily recommend Jason to anyone who’s lost their way in business."
"All of the most successful business empires have founders who had mentors. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg was mentored by Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs was mentored by Mike Markkula the investor in Apple. I was thinking to go to the college to study management. However after spending a lot of money I would have no business and no business experience at the end of the course. There was another, better alternative – to find myself a business mentor. A business mentor will help you not only to save your money, but will help you to build a successful business. Thankfully at a business networking meeting I’ve met a very good one and you now have too! Our first discovery session was free which helped us to know each other better and we became a good team. I am managing my health and massage business alone and some tasks and projects I had been trying to do for at least a year, but with Jason’s mentoring it was done in just a few weeks. Jason has years of experience in the small business field and he has a network of professionals and business owners who he can introduce you to. This is a good resource and opportunity when you have a mentor. Jason is a very professional, nice, kind and polite person. All sessions is confidential which I like. He can make you stronger and to help you find shorter way to success. We all often deal with depression when we are unable to meet our goals and have our expectations met. Jason is not just a Business Mentor and Life Coach but he also encourages you with positive and soothing words of advice when things refuse to go your way. Jason practically guides you and shares your worries, keeps you reassured that you are successful which helps to increase your self-confidence. To having high self-confidence contributes significantly to career success more than talent and competence. Jason helps me to see every challenge as an opportunity which helps me to keep going forward with my business with a positive mind-set. If I need any advice or consultation I can reach Jason any time by calling him or having an online chat. If you are in the middle of the road and you don’t know where to go at the moment, which way would lead you to success. If you are afraid to start your business or expand your existing business than Jason is definitely the right person for you! I am enjoying our work together very much and we will be continue our great partnership. I consider it to be a great investment. Time is money. Don’t waste your time with doubts, just contact Jason and all your questions will be answered"
"I can thoroughly recommend Jason as a business mentor because he is indeed a mentor, and an excellent one at that. His listening skills are superb and he always responds with insight and practical advice. I gained invaluable assistance from my mentoring sessions with Jason and wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again if I’m in need of them. Jason clearly has deep knowledge and experience of the unique challenges involved in starting up, or running, a business, and knows what it takes to transform what seems a daunting challenge into an opportunity for both business and personal growth. Jason was able to create a safe, welcoming space in our mentoring sessions in order to explore my own personal and business experiences, identify any issues unresolved or needing to be addressed, and to come up with creative solutions or at least discover the skills and resources I already have which could be used to find the solutions needed. His scrupulous attention to detail and the great care he took to put me at ease and to create the right conditions to make the mentoring sessions work, gave me great confidence in him, which paid off handsomely as the sessions progressed"
"At the age of 50 and having reached a high level in my chosen field I knew that I needed to look at what I was doing and how it fitted with my work/life balance. I wanted the opportunity to work in a more flexible manner and to have time to explore and succeed in other projects. Jason helped me to analyse where I am now and where I want to be, but much more importantly, he helped me find the path to my future. From starting with a whole lot of unanswered questions I ended up with clear answers and achievable goals. Jason’s questioning was clear and challenging and his advice sound and logical. He spent time making me think and understand and he helped me to see clearly through a whole lot of different ideas. I was very pleased that by the time we came to the end of our sessions he had pointed and guided me in such a way that I know what I need to do and how to do it. I would recommend Jason to anyone who is looking to move their career forward or just needs some guidance to help them make changes."
"Jason has a take-charge style and is kind and humorous. There is nothing ‘off the shelf’ about his approach. He really wants you to succeed and will do everything he can to be supportive. Being a sole trader it was so nice and such a relief to be able to share with someone who I trust and knows what he is talking about. Even though we are from different towns I was concerned that Jason would view me as a competitor, but when I contacted him but he was very open and happy to meet. Jason is helping me grow my coaching business and we say in the industry that a coach who can coach coaches is good at what they do! Thank you Jason"
"Jason was recommended to me by another local business owner. His free discovery meeting was very helpful in exploring how he could help me grow my tutoring business. Jason oozes professionalism and confidence. He nudges and holds you to account – as is the role of the coach and mentor, and listens to you as an individual, recognising your way of working. Highly recommended investment."
"After looking and researching business coaches, I decided to put my trust in Jason. He was so much more value for money as the others were very expensive. This coupled with his previous business background and reviews he was the obvious choice. Jason is a great listener, making you feel at ease. He gently points you in the direction you naturally want to go offering support along the way. I was working as a general builder, my aim was to specialise! Jason will listen to your fears and concerns and will not judge you. He sets out some project research for you to do, when this is done you feel that you are closer to where you want to be. I have met Jason around 10 times now and really noticed a big difference in my attitude to my work life. I’m so pleased that I made the right decision, give this guy a call and try his free initial discovery session, you won’t regret it!!"
"I’ve been visiting Jason for some months now and I have to say the service I have received is amazing. Jason has really helped me focus my business efforts to where they should be going not on wasting time on meaningless endeavours. I have found Jason’s approach to be relaxed yet professional and I can’t thank him enough for all the help he’s given me."
"Dear Jason, I write to thank you for the recent business coaching you have provided me. In a nutshell, as a ‘one man band’ business it can often be very hard making decisions and knowing the right way to steer my business. This is why I was interested to meet you for one of your free ‘Discovery Meetings’ to see if and how you could help me. After the hour session, not only was I really impressed with your knowledge of business, but also your background in psychotherapy. Also, I really liked the blend of personal and business. Therefore, I was very pleased to use your business coaching services. I have just completed my first month with you. I now feel completely different about business and the way I approach it. You have challenged my way of thinking in many ways and I have often left our meetings feeling a bit ‘discombobulated’ but in the very best way. Your approach has been supportive, encouraging without a doubt. However, that’s not all. It’s also challenged me, nudging me in different directions. Like a Dolphin parent, you have nudged and guided me. Sometimes you swam ahead, sometimes alongside but always letting me swim at my own pace and direction. I am extremely excited about my business in 2019 and would highly recommend your services to friends and colleagues. Many Thanks."
"Working with Jason has given me a new insight as to how my business can grow. I always have so many ideas but end up going round in circles. With the help of Jason’s direction and knowledge, my business is beginning to blossom in ways that I would never have expected."
"I started working with Jason to set up my therapy business. I had tried to do it on my own and after a few false starts I realized I needed to find an expert business mentor. I am very fortunate to have found Jason as he has helped me develop and implement a very successful business model and marketing strategy. This would never have been possible without him. Jason keeps me on track and is available to give feedback on any aspects of my business. He is a true professional and is always there to help and give support. I highly recommend Jason and consider myself very fortunate to have him as my business mentor."
"I have only been working with Jason a short time, approximately a month, and in 2 sessions with Jason, he has challenged some limiting beliefs I have about my business, which were really holding me back, and its completely transformed my confidence. In only 2 sessions I have implemented his valuable advice into action points, and have seen massive positive results in my cash flow and also a growth in business. Jason really pushes me to step outside of my comfort zone and become a better version of me, in order to grow and take my business where I want it to be. I will be recommending Jason to all business owners."
"When I moved to the UK from abroad I was a qualified school teacher and musician with 10 years experience. I really wanted to carry on my career in this country and so I sent my CV to some schools. The replies were that either they didn’t have a vacancy or that I could have a low paid position working along side their existing staff, or that I was overqualified for the position for which I was applying. I was determined to succeed and in my desperation I turned to Jason for help and advice to set up as a self-employed private piano teacher. I didn’t know where to get my new students from and a few piano teachers that I spoke to were not thriving. With Jason’s coaching and mentoring I realised that the sky was the limit and I could have as many students as I wanted. Within 18 months I had more than 35 regular pupils and a waiting list. Jason taught me how to set boundaries by drafting and applying Terms of Business and all aspects of running a small business successfully and efficiently. I’m very grateful to Jason as without him I would have considered changing my career. 50% of my success is due to Jason’s inspiration and confidence that I could do it. I highly recommend Jason Mentoring and Coaching for any difficulty or goal connected to Small Business. He helped me build my dream which is not only my work but my hobby and passion. What better situation to be in. He helped me enormously and he can help you too."
"Working with Jason is brilliant. It has given me financial security and flexibility with my time – two big priorities of mine. I went from having no business idea at all to reaching my 1st target income in just a few months. Jason is great at knowing just how much to nudge you forwards without being overwhelming. I am loving the challenges and joys of the business journey and look forward to seeing where I can take my ideas next…"
"I’ve run Corporate divisions historically, and have run my own business since 1995 – before the ubiquitous world wide web and even e mail – the rules of engagement have changed, and change we must reflect as individuals. As Ghandi once reflected, ‘You must be the change you want to see’ or something apposite like that. Our problem, in such a competitive world, is just how can we analyse, accept and handle the changing ways of doing business and yet retain the real reason why we went into business in the first place – we had the idea, the passion, the foresight, the skill and the overall desire. All this crowds our sensibilities, where do we go for advice and clarity? Jason will be frank, honest and perspective in analysing what you do, how you do it and more importantly, what you need to do to properly focus on what you want to achieve. Too many of us ‘enthusiasts’ confuse activity with accomplishment – Jason will provide that clarity to prioritize what you need to do, when you need to do it and hold you to it. Just spending money with a ‘coach’ is missing the point, Jason will ensure you participate, it’s your future after all, this guy is credible, he’s been there – to be recommended folks – have a conversation with him, he speaks with one tongue."
"I have two successful businesses which are both taking off and I felt pulled in two directions, difficulty focusing on the growth of both, prioritising and using my time to maximum effect. I was also trying to ‘be strong’ and do everything myself when it was clear that I needed to delegate or outsource but I was unsure how. With these challenges in mind, I approached Jason to ask for his free discovery meeting to explain my situation and discuss his ‘Hidden Business Partner’ services. Having met with Jason it was obvious to me that he was someone I could trust and has excellent listening skills and considerable small business experience. I had spoken with some of his many existing clients at business networking events and read his online reviews and so decided to engage his services. Jason helps me to understand my personality better, why I prefer to do things in my business in the way that I do, highlighting my strengths and building my self-confidence. How to gain the strategic direction and support I need to move forward with my businesses. Jason is insightful and has the ability to look at a situation from many different angles. If I am feeling stuck he makes original suggestions, motivating me and creating momentum. In each and every session we agree on action points and he keeps me on track and holds me accountable. I suggest you meet Jason for a coffee. You won’t regret it. It’s not a quick fix, it is a journey together, so stick with it and he will help you to change your thoughts, behaviours and feelings and get the results in your small business you are looking for."
"Jason is an exceptional business coach who can help any business owner take their business to the next level. Highly insightful, and having run successful businesses himself really understands the problems all small and medium business owners run into. Would highly recommend to anyone"
