What our clients have to say about working with Linda

I have known Linda for many years! She runs her own business coaching business and is working with another friend of ours who has their own small business. I have seen how Linda’s programme has really bolstered their business and how her advice and guidance has benefitted them in terms of their sustainability. I attended a webinar last week with Linda and I gained so much insight from her programme. (April 2020)

I would like to take this time to firstly thank you very much for your contribution to helping me grow my business, and secondly to give you a personal recommendation. I started my journey with Linda Dent in January 2019, I completed the Value Builder Questionnaire and met with Linda to discuss the health of my business. Since starting business coaching, I have implemented the necessary systems, employed the correct staff to support my growth and I have significantly increased my revenue.  Linda’s industry knowledge and experience gives her the edge as she is able to bring in real examples of where some techniques have been applied to real business. As a business owner I find that business coaching supports me and holds me accountable to myself, it gives me a different perspective and helps me see my blind spots.

I highly recommend Linda if you’re looking to grow your business. I engaged with Linda on her Value Builder Assessment and it was an immensely valuable exercise to see where in my business I needed to focus for growth and expansion. It was an eye opener in many ways and I have been able to implement strategies to support me. Linda is professional and definitely knows how to support you and your business. With her many many years of experience, you and your business are in VERY good hands.

Linda from Just Ask Linda, listens carefully and uses her expertise to provide the tools you need to grow your business and make successful decisions. She opened my eyes to really see the value of planning and establish my breakeven financial plan. With the financial planning and guidance, she allowed me to see that it’s better to wait for the right time to start a business, especially given Covid-19. Her coaching is not simply a business improvement session, but a life improvement as well.  You learn how these same principles can be applied to your personal life.  Whether you are faced with a career change, or just need some focus, she can help give you a structure to accomplish your goals. Thanks again Linda, my time with you has certainly helped me re-focus, manage my time and stresses of workload. Its enabled me to approach business from a different perspective, which from my perspective proves our time together has been successful! I highly recommend Just Ask Linda.

It was very reassuring to discuss my small business with you and know that I am on the right track. You gave very valuable advice to ensure the ongoing success of my business. I found the VALUE BUILDER score and the discussion about it very informative. This concept can definitely help a lot of companies. I look forward to working with you going forward.

I have approached Linda Dent from Just Ask Linda! to assist me, a small business owner with specific things such as cash flow. What I got was so much more. Linda adds value to your organization not by telling, talking, describing, or leading. Linda uses your business results and numbers, set up in a way that makes sense to facilitate business owners to the best possible outcome and decision for their business in terms of operations, financial management but also high-level decision-making. Business owners most of the time have their heads stuck in the detail and unable to step back and have a conceptual view of their businesses. This is where Linda comes in handy. She is also gentle, patient but brutally honest in such a professional way that you can only respect her business acumen. I would highly recommend Linda Dent

Linda maps out the peg points to raise a big beautiful marquee tent over your business dreams. She gives form, function and advice which even if you studied business economics for years may not be quite within your grasp. She cares as much about your business as a board member or shareholder for the price of a stamp - in the overall scale of her contribution.
