Moving from ‘simmer’ to ‘sizzle’

Let’s be real for a moment – business can be tough!
Sometimes we struggle – cash flow challenges, business growth issues, team and/or management problems, the pace of change…
and we stall in our businesses. Often we don’t know what to do next.
Sometimes we settle for what we’ve got rather than pushing through the tough times towards achieving our big vision.
At that time business and life can be comfortable, manageable, or……. fine!
But is ‘fine’ really enough?
I call it ‘living in the simmer zone’.  Things are OK but you’re missing that electricity, that buzz of energy and enthusiasm, that ‘sizzle’ –
that feeling of being alive, passionate and extraordinary – as you define it in business and life.
That sizzle and excitement of achieving your vision – of achieving extraordinary, sustainable profitable growth in your business.

What if I said you could?

My passion is for helping business people – entrepreneurs / small business owners, and executives –
achieve their own version of extraordinary success in business (and life) – their own sizzle!.
I’m committed to helping you find that clarity around your purpose, values and strategy.
I’ll support your dream and hold you to account as you work towards achieving, ensuring you take the necessary
business growth steps along the way.
Let’s get you, your business and your life sizzling, now!

about_home_4A New Zealander Living in London

I’m originally from New Zealand (yep, I’m a proud Kiwi), and lived in London (my favourite city in the world) since 2006 with my family – David, Gemma and Alex (my adult stepson).

Baking and Cooking… It Soothes My Soul

When I need a break from the busy-ness of life and business, you can see me in the kitchen, getting my fix of baking and cooking.  For me, nothing beats whipping up a cake, cookies or a dessert to share with family and friends, or creating fabulous healthy food to nurture my soul.

… and Chocolates Too…

Who can live without chocolates?  Only the best will do!  I’m an amateur chocolate maker.  These are my current favourites – Apricot and Grand Marnier Truffles – that I give to clients and other wonderful people who enter my world.  Yum!

Occasionally I Do Crazy Things…

… like training for 10 weeks to compete in a white collar boxing match.  I accomplished this personal goal in December 2016.  Check out my Instagram account (@AdeleMcLay) to see what happened – you’ll see plenty of bruises.  🙂

…and Training to Compete in a Natural Bodybuilding Competition

Call me mad, but it’s a dream I’ve had for over 20 years…. to seriously train and transform my body to stand on a stage in a skimpy bikini with a gloriously shaped and muscled body and compete in a natural bodybuilding competition.  So the journey has begun (Jan 2017).  Watch my Instagram (@AdeleMcLay) for updates.
