Richard focuses on the things he does best – getting people results, helping entrepreneurs envision their dream life, developing a plan to move into that future, helping them overcome any obstacles and supporting them on their journey.


“Being a serial entrepreneur myself, I am extremely passionate about helping other entrepreneurs achieve clarity and put strong foundations under their dreams. I’m a naturally creative guy and can see the BIG picture all at once, so brainstorming sessions (my favourite part) often spur great new ideas and possibilities where others saw only dead ends.”
