"I had been made redundant twice in the last 8 years and getting Life Coaching and Business Coaching with 1st Life management was a worthwhile investment.

The Life Coach helped me believe in myself again and the Business Coach’s practical guidance for setting up my own business was nothing short of gold dust in my opinion.

I am now running my own business from a commercial unit minutes away from where I live and doing very nicely. There are even opportunities for my son to join the business now."
- Mr. P. Hudson, Streatham
