Working with me, your way!

You have every opportunity to run a business that works for you, rather than a business you simply work for and I can help you get there quicker!

Working with me will help you to clear the fog and get you on the right track. Let's stop you being busy without getting the results you want, and get you feeling in control and focussed.

I’ll work with you on the aspects of your business that will help you the most, tailoring our sessions to your individual needs, whether that’s looking at your product mix, pricing, ideal client, marketing approach, or even applying for a business loan. My clients will tell you that I'm great at putting structure around ideas so that profitability is maximised!

After each session, I'll send you a write up of the key points we’ve covered and the actions that we’ve discussed so that you understand your next steps and how to take them.

"I'd spoken to coaches before and attended lots of workshops but until meeting Karen, I hadn't found that elusive someone who could just get on with it and give practical, sensible advice that would work!"

It's up to you how we work....

You can book one session to focus on a key area of your business or have ongoing accountability and support to help you drive your business forward. I'm all about working in the way that suits you best.

With packages ranging from a 'Power Hour' to monthly support or full business plan creation, I work as flexibly as you need me to. 


Business Blast

In this personally tailored face to face session, we'll review your goals and objectives and make sure that you are focussing on the right activity to achieve them! 

We'll get clear on reaching your ideal client, your product mix and pricing and the structure behind your growth plan to make sure it delivers results.

If I could have only made one financial investment since starting a business this year, without any doubt, it would be the Business Partnering with Karen.   Karen just gets it on all fronts – not least business insight, strategic awareness, and critical thinking.   At a key time for me and my business, Karen helped me clear the fog, refocus, and see the wood for the trees. She’s as down to earth as one comes, making her a joy to work with, and really knows her stuff, making the decision to do so a definite no brainer.   Karen really goes above and beyond, delivering more than I was thinking I’d receive, and I’d have zero hesitation about working with her once more. As I get further down the line with growing my business, I will 100% be back to work with Karen again for guidance and partnering to take the business to the next level once more.

Business Power Hour

I also offer a one-hour session via Skype or face to face at the Bristol and Bath Science Park for business owners who need to discuss a key challenge or opportunity in their business or to sense check their activity.

"Wow! Just had a session in my office with Karen Cook of Plan and Grow - so many confused ideas from my head have been made and put into a strategic plan. I'd recommend Karen in a heartbeat. She has the ability to look at your business from an outside perspective with strategic eyes to help you know where to focus....she brings a fresh perspective to all my concerns!"

Business Plan creation


This is for you if you need a full business plan - maybe to apply for finance, or to share with a potential business partner. If you don't know where to start with this seemingly huge task, talk to me and find out about how I helped one client to secure finance, save £10k on their first year's rent and then secure finance for a second venture!

Business workshops


If you run a business or networking group and want to bring them some new ideas on business growth, let's talk. I can create a workshop / speaker slot on a real mix of business subjects - maybe sales funnels, planning a strategy or working in collaboration for example.
