PORTFOLIO ENTREPRENEUR + INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COACH

Welcome to JacobAldridge.com. As an international business advisor since 2006, I provide bespoke strategic solutions to privately-owned companies with 12 - 96 employees.

You have proven your business can work, but can still feel stuck turning ambition into reality. You have a growing team, but ultimately you are still responsible for all 28 areas of your business.

You don't have time or budget for 28 different experts to tell you what to do. You need one person you can trust, to show you how everything is connected and where you will uniquely achieve the best return on your business investment.

That one person is me. Let's chat - it costs nothing to start a relationship.

HOW COACHING WORKS

Pure business coaching is a waste of money.

Today, the term "business coach" just means "generic, unqualified consultant". Would you prefer something different?

Top 3 Lessons from NSA: Influence 2019

Immediately scales fell from my eyes, and I could see… Growing up, my father proffered plenty of advice, some of it actually useful. The most valuable suggestion he ever gave me was simple: You are who you hang with. I suppose it’s a corollary of the aphorism that each person is an average of the…

You Don’t Know the Difference Between Income and Wealth

Every few months a reporter somewhere writes an article headlined “How much you need to earn to be rich”. If you think wealth (“rich”) is defined by income (“how much you earn”) then let me be blunt: You don’t know the difference between income and wealth. And THAT’S why you’re not rich. I get on…

The 4% Rule Safe Withdrawal Rate is Too Conservative

One of the key tenets of the Financial Independence movement is “The 4% Rule” – if you don’t know what that is, go look it up, because this article isn’t a primer it’s a critique and I want to jump straight into why this “safe” target that many people think is too risky … is…

SHAMELESS PRAISE

Some business people share "endorsements", "testimonials", or "what people are saying". Me? I'm shameless - I love being praised, and I love sharing the love.

If you want to know what awesome looks like, read on...

“The value that Jacob added to our business is twofold. He lives the bigger game bringing a strong strategic perspective together with the ability to build process and structure to support the implementation of the strategy. Secondly his energy – he is always happy, always sees the positive and always happy to get his sleeves rolled up and get stuck in. He is a real asset to any business that has a passion to grow and make a difference.”

Juliet Turnbull,
2to3days.com

“Jacob’s energy is boundless and his coaching capability immense. He is also a man of many talents. He was instrumental in devising and introducing our new newsletter across the business which has now touched several hundred of my clients and enabled me to connect with new friends. I value Jacob for the positive difference he has made for my business.”

Jim Henderson, Management Consultant,
Harrison James Partnership

“Jacob’s business insights and experiences are world-class. Great facilitator and invaluable as a coach.”

Jenny Vandyke, Principal Consultant, 
Zumbara Consulting

“His motivation and dedication are second to none and his personal and communication skills are really superb. I would recommend Jacob to anyone who wants to have absolute confidence that things – and the right things – will get done; and have a good time doing it.
Our only complaints remain his choice of jokes and ties.”
