After leaving behind an illustrious career in the banking sector, Jessica Williams set out on a path which has seen her achieve academic success and a growing business that is continuing to go from strength to strength, but it wasn’t achieved without initial help.
With 11-years’ experience in banking, Jessica took up a new role with the Entrepreneurs Forum helping businesses in the north east connect and share knowledge with one another, whilst also studying an Executive MBA at Teesside University.
In a life changing period which saw Jessica considering to take up an academic degree and at a crossroads in her career, she came in to contact with expert business coach, Ian Kinnery from Team Massive Results, who helped shape her into the successful business owner she is today.
Jessica said: “I met Ian at a tough time in my life. It was stressful considering to start both an MBA and take the big decision to set up my own business.
“Ian helped me take a step back and look at the bigger picture, giving me the ability to focus and see a clear path for my future.”
Three years on from working with Ian and Jessica is now running the highly successful business, Just Williams, whichprovides outsourced sales and business development to companies throughout the UK. Just Williams empower businesses to create growth through sales, driving both relationships and returns.
However, Jessica admits had it not been down to working with Ian, she may not have taken that initial leap to get her business idea off the ground.
“Ian eased me through the transition from employee to business owner. He has an amazing skill of helping you find belief and confidence in your own abilities.
“Ian’s unique style helped me take in all the things that were going on in my life at that time and focus on bringing them all together to take me on this journey.
“I’m very grateful to how Ian has helped get me and my business to where I am today and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to take themselves to the next step in business.”
