Just as with HTML editors, various open-source software programs have sprung up to provide an alternative to the dominant player, Dreamweaver in the case of website editors and Microsoft office in the case of office application suites.

I understand how you may feel reluctant to allow an external advisor to delve into the detail of your business. I have had other clients who felt the same way. But all of my other clients found the investment they made was repaid many times over both in their business and their own work life balance. To help you we have produced a free spreadsheet which will allow you to reflect on what you would like to achieve with your business and where you are at present.

Once you have completed the spreadsheet we will review the results with you if you want at no cost to you.
