The Story Behind Steer Your Business
I worked for many years in the Committee Office of the Department for Chamber & Committee Services as a secretary and then Finance Manager with a budget of over £60m. I was then promoted to Business Manager in the Department for Information Services, working with John Pullinger CB (now National Statistician for the UK). During this time, I worked with John to design a Balanced Scorecard as well as being the secretariat to the Board of Directors.
Since taking early retirement, I have built a business based on the skills gained in order to help small business owners implement systems and processes to reduce their stress, increase their productivity and most importantly, increase the value of their businesses when they decide to sell. I am passionate about helping business owners just like you!
Lessons Learned from Managing Parliamentary Budgets
Having worked on business plans, annual reviews and performance in the Department of Information Services in the House of Commons, I’ve used all the knowledge I’ve gained to work with business owners. Writing two books clarified my thinking into a format which business owners have found practical and relevant to them.

I have now listened to two of Sally's talks and find them really inspiring. Sally's style is so down to earth, and comes straight from the heart. It is just so easy to relate to her journey. Her narrative always links with real life stories, which gives the listener the feeling that anything is possible -with a bit of luck and can do attitude. She has certainly inspired me to try to write an eBook, so watch the space. Let's see where it takes me is what Sally would say...
Sally is a brilliant businsswoman. Her first, self-published, book (Delegate to Elevate) is amazing and I am waiting with baited breath for her second one (available for pre-order via Amazon). She is friendly, helpful and a real support to my business. Her numerous skills are invaluable and I am pleased and proud to know her as a friend and mentor. I recommend anyone in business to get to know Sally and engage her support. Bev Rolfe, Admin Angel.
Sally's book Delegate 2 Elevate provides an easy to digest 7 step insight into how a business of my size can move to the next step from being self-employed to a business owner. The book has installed greater emphasis into setting up a series of systems which essentially allows me to focus on the vision and direction of the business. I found a lot of the comments common knowledge, however put in a simple way that they resonated and resulted in action being taken. Good read!
I have recently started the Millionaire Mindset course with Sally Marshall and after only one session I feel that this is going to be extremely beneficial to running my business. I would strongly recommend that all business owners attend the course in order to improve systems, processes and ultimately profits. I have learnt so much already and I am really looking forward to the rest of the course.
