New Testimonials Jo James
My clients get REAL results, fast.
“Jo really helped me enormously. She helped me focus what I was offering, and to which markets. She suggested effective sales and marketing systems which I have implemented, and already got results from. Plus Jo also helped me develop my copy writing skills for my website and newsletters.
Her enthusiasm is great, she’s always at the end of the phone if you have a question or just need some encouragement. She also gave me some great tools to use, which are helping me stay focused!
I would highly recommend Jo James to anyone wanting to get their business into shape and to make more money. My speaking and client bookings have already increased since working with Jo and I’ve got many more opportunities coming up.”

“Working with Jo is ideal for me. Her no-nonsense approach to identifying my goals, setting stepping stone action points in place and keeping me accountable is just what I need, and we speak every 3-4 months to set targets and discuss how plans and actions are going, and it’s one of the best investments in my business I’ve made in 19 years. Being accountable is valuable when you’re self-employed and her guidance, support and ideas are just what I need to get me out of my comfort zones and into the places I want to shine. Thanks, Jo.”
Roz McLeod, Power Hour
”In under an hour on our Skype call I got clear about three things that had been bugging me: pricing, launching and selling (my product). Jo helped me discard loads of stuff that wasn’t necessary and I’m clearer, lighter and excited and know exactly what to do next. She’s brilliant.”
“I won £10,000 of new business in 10 days. In a nutshell, the Get Sales Savvy course with Jo, has given me the confidence to ask for, and get the results I need. Without any fuss. I couldn’t have asked for more.” said Nicola, Creative Designer, owner of Nicola Wordsworth Designs

“I really loved the pace of the retreat, the leisurely mealtimes to the very focused Exec Room sessions, all set in a stunning location. I now have a much clearer picture of how I’m going to take MicroBarBox to the next level and have a very detailed set of steps to get there.
As well as focusing on your own business it’s great to hear about everyone else’s business challenges and how they are moving forward, or hearing about lessons learned. It makes the whole retreat seem very much like a team effort and I’m very much looking forward to seeing how their businesses progress as well as pushing forward with my own. I do hope and feel that this is just the start of a rather special group of people that will give each other support for years to come.
I love your seemingly endless supply of energy Jo, and the way everything was organised and in place before we arrived.
An absolute joy to work with, a heady mix of business strategies and fun.”
Kate Darracott, Microbarbox
“I had been exploring a range of options for my coaching business and had finally settled on the area I wanted to focus on, but I felt I needed help to move it to the next stage and really kickstart myself into action. Jo was recommended by a couple of other business women I knew, and I loved her strapline – Propelling women in business to earn 6 figures and beyond.
During our initial telephone discussion I got the sense that Jo would have the energy, drive and knowledge to help me, and I was right!
Over the three months that we worked together, I quickly gained absolute clarity on my niche and was then able to get the infrastructure in place to support it. We worked on my website, implemented Jo’s brilliant sales and marketing strategies and at the same time, Jo encouraged me to start networking and gave me tips to make it more effective.
By the end of our sessions I had already won a big assignment and I am now working with my ideal clients. Thanks Jo!”

“The challenge I was facing was closing a sale. I knew that if I could effectively close sales regularly, I’d be able to move my business to the next level.
I particularly enjoyed my Live Q&A call to get my questions answered.
The regular emails were really helpful, and the audio link just made it better.
Using what was taught, I have managed to book a number of appointments with prospective clients and have closed a big sale already.
During this course, I managed to set long term goals and with new knowledge and with new things to think about, I’m sure I can achieve them.
Jo’s energy and passion for helping people was shown throughout. She really went above and beyond and I’d highly recommend this course if you’re looking to up your sales game.”

“I first approached Jo for some much needed advise when I found myself in a complicated work situation which had a number of possible outcomes! This was back in 2012.
Jo listened, asked questions and helped me realise my priorities and my self worth.
18 months later, scenario x in full swing I knew I was ready for some more coaching so engaged Jo in a series of 121 sessions to help me focus on driving my business forward rather than just ticking over. Once I’d finished these sessions I knew working with Jo was invaluable to my business and decided to join one of her mastermind groups.
At this point starting a family was a factor in my future planning and I was able to elevate my business to the level I wanted to before falling pregnant, this enabled me to have some proper maternity leave with my daughter when she came along in 2015.
Fast forward to autumn 2016, I’d been back at work for over a year, busy doing the doing and knew I needed to go back to Jo to pull my focus back to the bigger picture. She has this wonderful way of making you appreciate what you are capable of then setting goals to achieve it and holding you accountable to these goals!
I have now been back in an Amberlife VIP Mastermind group for a year and it’s been the most successful year I’ve had. The team has grown, business has developed and we’ve won some fantastic contracts. As well as these business achievements I have managed to protect my time with my family which is so important to me.
Thank-you Jo xxx”

“In my role as APDO-UK International Officer I help organise our annual conference. I source speakers that will teach, inspire and make an impact – this is the reason I asked Jo to speak to our group of Professional Organisers about “Selling the Anti-Selling Way.
Jo’s presentation style is very dynamic and interactive. In an hour slot, Jo managed to make us think, share and have clear take away tools.
It was clear that Jo had done her research about our Indcustry and how she could apply her knowledge to our profession with clear examples.
She is not only knowledgeable and extremely professional but also funny and witty, which makes the content more memorable.”

“Jo possesses the ability to work with people both creatively and logically. She makes the sale process easy and motivates you to get going to sell your service/product. She teaches you to deal with the setbacks, organise your pitch, refine your research and gets you in the right mind set to help you make that sale. I highly recommend her Sales workshops and I think everyone should do a Jo James Sales Seminar! Thanks Jo.”

“Before I started working with Jo, I was already doing well in my private practice, but Government imposed changes in our healthcare sector brought with it a mammoth leap in costs.
Jo helped me achieve my goal of being maximally booked with clients, in under six months, which is staggering when you consider that growth in my sector is actually contracting not expanding for most clinicians.
Being part of the Mastermind group has made all the difference in the world. There is a wonderful sense of community and accountability, and we can share ideas and problem solve together, all with Jo’s fabulous direction.
Joining Jo James’ Mastermind group is the single best business decision I have ever made, besides starting a business of my own. Do yourself a favour, and make the decision to join too.”

“I was going through a major business overhaul and wanted time to get away, focus on the business, talk through some ideas and get clarity on my goals, which is why I booked the retreat.
It was a safe environment in which we could discuss everything, and I loved the ideas, help and support, the breakthrough moments and the laughter.
I’ve certainly got clarity and a plan to put everything into action now.
The food was absolutely fabulous.
The massage and hydrotherapy were a lovely way of starting the retreat
Yoga sessions and walks on the beach were relaxing and were a real energy boost.
Working with Jo James was an uplifting, positive and fun experience.
Facilitated brilliantly, helping us stay on track when we drifted off our path!”
Kay Daniels, Financial Troubleshooter.
“I had an extremely valuable experience recently when Jo gave me some business coaching. It had been a very challenging time and I had lost the sense of purpose I needed for the business to be successful. Jo reminded me that with clarity comes power and encouraged me to be very specific about the goals I wanted to achieve, particularly about how much money I needed to generate each month.
As soon as I decided on the figure I needed I felt a new sense of purpose and relief. Within the next week I was offered a training contract which would generate exactly the amount I had decided on. Jo had reminded me of the power of setting an intention and it was exactly the coaching I needed.”

“Jo has helped me achieve new heights in my business. Before I met Jo I was a wandering creative who was finding it incredibly hard to be motivated and inspired about the art of business. The business coaching I have with her enable me to be focused, organised and goal orientated and be open to opportunities that before I might have missed.
I have certainly increased my sales by 45% two consecutive years now and attribute that success to Jo helping me to plan and see what needed to be achieved instead of aimlessly going from month to month hoping for the best.
Jo is great to work with and she lights up a room with her charismatic bubbly personality and is alway upbeat and positive.”

“Selling is hard and horribly unpleasant, right? Wrong! At least, not after a day spent at Jo’s brilliant and insightful Sales Masterclass Workshop. Definitely THE best thing to have happened to my business so far this year.
The workshop was jam packed full of tips and techniques which have helped enormously in getting my head around the psychology of selling and having confidence in the quality of my product. Jo’s enthusiasm and creativity is infectious and I can now quite honestly say that I am ENJOYING selling! (I never, ever thought I would say that!)
The workshop has transformed the way I feel about selling to my clients and instead of feeling nervous in my skills, both on the phone and by email, I am embracing every opportunity I have to feel proud to offer a high quality product and high value service that I truly believe in.
At long last I feel that I am ‘selling’ with integrity and genuine passion!
And the proof is in the pudding. Since Jo’s workshop I’m delighted to say that I have booked every single enquiry! How fantastic is that! I have also introduced a brand new pricing plan and I am already seeing pretty amazing results with profits almost tripling those of the previous four months. Impressive!”
