Lesley Ann Grimoldby has been running her own businesses for 27 years. She began her working life as a primary school teacher in Western Australia and after eight years, took up new challenges in the hospitality and entertainment industries, where she created her own positions in public relations and training.
In the mid 90s, Lesley Ann discovered ‘The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to do about it’ by Michael Gerber – a book which was named one of the top selling business books of the Twentieth Century.
Fascinated by the principles, she became a client of Mr. Gerber’s E-Myth Worldwide and soon after travelled to the United States to train to become a Certified E-Myth Consultant.
Since then she has had the opportunity to work with hundreds of business owners in Australian, New Zealand and the US, helping them create the businesses of their dreams and achieve goals that had at first seemed unattainable as they turned their businesses into entities that gave them the lives they wanted.
Lesley Ann believes that when it comes down to it, it’s not really about your business, it’s about your life and the way to make that happen is through business development. Her greatest joy is to see clients create businesses that work FOR them instead of BECAUSE of them.
