Try A Free, Confidential, No Obligation,
60 Minutes One To One Business SOS
(Second Opinion Session)
With Business Coach, Paul Simister
*UK Businesses Only*.

If you’re frustrated because your business is stuck or struggling, and you’re unsure what to do, I can help you get unstuck. You can then get back to refocusing on your own future success.

Don’t stay stuck because things can gets worse. You don’t want to go there.

By landing on this page, you’ve recognised to yourself that you might need advice. Take this opportunity to get the business help you want and need.

Nearly all business owners will get stuck as some stage and many get stuck more times. It often happens when you find yourself in a new or strange situation and you don’t have someone you trust to bounce ideas off.

That’s why talking with someone like me can be so effective. Email me at paul@plancs.co.uk with Business SOS in the subject line and tell me why you feel stuck.

Many things can make you feel stuck with your business and drag you down.

Just answering this poll can help you to clarify your issues and make it easier to explain to me why you feel stuck and would like a Second Opinion Session. You’ll also get to see what makes others feel stuck.

You can get unstuck provided you’re willing to take action.

Email me at paul@plancs.co.uk with Business SOS in the subject line and tell me why you feel stuck or frustrated with your business.

Taking this first small step to getting yourself unstuck can make you feel a little better. Immediately someone else (me) cares about why you’re stuck. You no longer face the problems on your own.

What we talk about in the 60 minutes session depends on you and your business and how you describe the problem. My aim is to move you forward and explain what you need to do.

You can see this Second Opinion Session either as:

  • A one-off, no obligation free service to help you at a time when things are difficult; or
  • As an introduction to my business coaching and advice and a chance for you to experience it, if you feel you want or need ongoing help.

You’ve got nothing to lose. Email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and tell me why you feel stuck and would like some advice, help or support.

Just be aware that my time is limited and this offer will be turned off when my diary gets full and turned back on again when things quieten down.

Before we look at these two options in more detail and I explain why you should listen to me, I also offer a paid for service that fits in between the free Business SOS and my ongoing coaching. I call it my Business Troubleshooting Session and it takes an entire morning with short breaks.

A One-Off No Obligation Helpful Call

My Business SOS is a genuine attempt to give business owners who need a little help, the advice, support and encouragement they want. I do it because I enjoy helping people and, if I can solve your problem in the free session, I will. I don’t hold anything back. It is a chance to roll your sleeves up and work on the obstacles that have caused you to be or feel stuck.

If it makes you feel better, you can even be upfront in your email to me at paul@plancs.co.uk and say that you don’t want coaching but you’d appreciate a free Second Opinion Session. It won’t affect how I treat you because I get a lot of pleasure from these

A Free Trial Of My Business Coaching & Advice If You Feel You Need More Help

You’ll get the same Business SOS experience designed to show that your business and life as a business owner can be improved when you get unstuck and, hopefully, you’ll be impressed enough to ask about my services. That’s right, you have to ask based on how well you feel this free session has helped you.

I’ve got no problems at all with you thanking me for my time and telling me that you don’t want to take things further. In fact, I’d prefer it to you telling me you’d like to become a client and then backing out later because you’re not committed to finding the time to talk or  making the necessary changes in your business.

I know people worry about how much business professionals cost. We’ve probably all been shocked by the bill from a solicitor or an accountant. Let me reassure you.

Unlike many other coaches, if you decide to become a client, I only ask you to pay when you’ve seen an improvement in your business. There is no deposit to seal your commitment. My aim from the very beginning is to make you better off from talking to me.

In subsequent coaching calls, we’ll develop a plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be and then implement the plan together, adjusting it when necessary, as we go along.

Over the longer term, it’s about making you more self-sufficient in setting your strategy and developing marketing and operation plans and putting them into action effectively so your business becomes more successful.

Because of the way I choose to work, getting paid from the improvement in your results, it’s as important to me to choose the right clients as it is for you to choose the right business coach and advisor. I have to be selective about who I can help because I only get paid when you believe I’ve helped you. How you react within the Business SOS is an important part of my process and I have to believe you are motivated and really want to do be coached.


Remember, if you feel you want something in between a free 60 minute session and an ongoing coaching relationship, I offer a Business Troubleshooting Session which takes a morning. This is a new paid for service and it’s available on a special deal at the moment.

The free Business SOS service is more for established business owners than for people who are thinking about starting a business.

To get this first 60 minutes free session, all you have to do is to email me at paul@plancs.co.uk, and ask for a Business SOS and tell me why you’re stuck.

Alternatively, read on to find out why I’m the person who can help you and your business during this challenging time.

What Other People Have To Say About This Free Service

As I said above, there is no obligation to buy my services and these comments are all by people who didn’t become clients but found my free advice very helpful.

“Incredibly insightful, thanks.”
Boris van Hemmen

“Our chat has been a big help. Thanks for the time and effort you spent.” Chrissie Vowles-Barrett

“After a turbulent period, I was lacking focus and drive. I  decided to use Paul’s free business SOS not expecting much, however, I received an in depth email which clarified my options and helped me implement immediate changes within my business.” Jill Crowther

I Know You Want A Quick Response

I know you want support quickly. My aim is to reply to your email within a few hours and to be talking to you within three working days.

Email me right now at paul@plancs.co.uk and tell me why you feel stuck and a little about your business to arrange an appointment.

Sometimes I don’t feel I can offer enough help to justify taking up your time with a telephone appointment. In these situations, I try to give you the help I can by email.

You Risk Nothing And Have Plenty To Gain From A Business SOS

You’ve got nothing to lose from emailing me at paul@plancs.co.uk and asking for a free Business SOS and you could have plenty to gain.

Do nothing and you’re stuck with the problem. That doesn’t make sense and especially if the problem could be getting worse.

I am semi-retired and I only work with a small number of clients. This Business SOS is my way of giving much needed help to more business owners than I can help through my paid services. I accept that most people who take up this offer won’t want to buy from me but I enjoy the challenge of helping you.


Other Options To Get My Help

If you’d prefer to start with a shorter “getting to know you” chat before deciding if you want the free Business SOS, that’s fine too. Again, email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and tell me you’d like a chat before the Business SOS. This means I won’t do as much preparation but I’d still to like to know what your business does and your website address, if you have one.

Another option is that we can do the entire Business SOS by email if it’s hard for you to arrange a time to talk. Just be aware that I’m likely to ask more detailed questions up front before I start giving you my ideas because I can’t clarify if ideas are relevant when I’m not talking to you. Again email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and make it clear you’d like the email version of the Business SOS.

I also recommend you download and read my free report, The Six Steps Profit Formula. People tell me it’s very good.
