Getting to know me

Here you will find a few snippets about me personally and no doubt from the website you’ve started to get a feel for the type of person I am.

​You can also check out my profiles on several other platforms so why not take a peek at them too.

​As always if you have any questions, just ask.

The man behind the screen

It can feel weird talking about yourself….

Jamie Monk

Small Business Guru

I’m a modern guy living in a world that changes every minute but ever since I was young and spent time with my Dad in his garage I learnt that my favourite thing in this world is making things.

It took many years to work out what I was good at making, and it turns out that I’m very good at designing new solutions to problems that people face.

​Being a fully fledged geek, of course, my problem-solving skills leant towards technology rather than carpentry like my father.

​It has served me well over my life so far and is certainly where I feel most at home.

It’s probably something to do with me being in that weird generational overlap between being a ‘Gen-Xer’ and ‘Millennial’ (apparently called Xennial which means I have the cynicism of Gen Xers and the optimism of Millennials).

Five ‘interesting’ things about me

  • My dog: I love him more than life and he has changed the way I look at this world. I love nothing more than spending time with him, taking pictures and just being silly with him.

  • Technology: I love a new piece of tech or working on something new. Nothing gives me more of a buzz.

  • Helping people: Really, I am one of those people that gets a buzz from helping out people, be that in a training room or in the pub.

  • Fixing things: When something is broken and I have that lightbulb moment to make it work – wow that is my drug of choice.

  • People: I’ve always been a people’s person from my days managing people to working 121, I thrive on seeing others achieve.

My Promise

I believe in small business and especially budding solo-entrepreneurs.

We live in a new age where there are no limits to creativity, ideas and achieving our passions.

My promise to you is that I’m here for you; I have no agenda other than to work with you and help you achieve the goals that you have set out for yourself. As long as you’re honest with me, I’ll be honest right back at you.

Whatever happens, you will achieve, be that making a few baby-steps towards your goal or going from concept to launch. I can help you move your business forward.

I’m here to help you and to make the most of that I believe in forming good relationships with my clients. We may end up spending lots of time together and swapping many stories so for me, it’s critical that we form a strong bond.

Your friends and family often can’t give you the harsh truth that sometimes you need. That’s where having someone independent of your circle of influence comes in really well. Although I will always try to put things in a positive way, I won’t give you any BS, it may be hard to swallow sometimes but it will be the truth and I will always try to help you find an alternative.

Time is money but sometimes life just happens and might get in the way of our appointments. If you need to cancel before our appointment then you’ll be welcome to rebook at no cost. If however I end up waiting for you and you don’t turn up – don’t be surprised if I charge you or take that off of your allowance. As I said, time is money, consider it your first lesson in accountability!

I don’t wear suits – I did for many years but they are now all resigned to the confines of storage. Our meetings are always held in a casual manner, I don’t stand on ceremony and neither should you. I will always try to make you feel like this is a relaxed session and hopefully, you should always enjoy our meetings and walk away feeling energised!

Sometimes you might not be able to find an appointment slot that suits you. I will always try to find you an appointment slot that works for us both so just reach out if nothing quite fits and I’ll see what I can do.

Testimonials

Here’s what my happy clients had to say about my services:

Jamie was attentive, clear and extremely helpful in our session. Thanks so much.

Sybil

It is great to work with Jamie. He helped me find solutions for postponed tasks. Every week I know I have a call with him, I worked harder to complete more must-dos. I am having more sessions with him and would definitely recommend Jamie to others.

Tina

I’ve had fancy business coaches in the past and I paid up to 1600 Euro a month for other complex coaches with all sorts of techniques but I found that with Jamie I ended up getting more tasks completed than any other coach. We used Trello and a layout which I found was exactly what I needed.

Matt

Amazing! I had the best experience with Jamie. He’s very knowledgeable, personable and has helped me tremendously with my startup. I look forward to working with him long term on a regular basis. Highly recommended.

Jamie has really helped me focus on what was important the last month and made sure I stayed on track and did the tasks that gets the most results. So happy I found Jamie and I end up getting more practical advice with no fancy gimmicks. I will stay getting his coaching for the foreseeable future.
