‘Paul has really transformed our mindset on our business, helping us to see its true value and appreciate how good we are at what we do.’


“We have seen incredible financial results, seeing our profit increase immeasurably over the time we have been working together. To be able to look at any hurdles from another angle, and to have the outside assessment of a situation we might be too close to, has been crucial to us moving forward. It’s fair to say we have been taken out of our comfort zone, but having Paul to guide us through this growth has been invaluable and we have really enjoyed the sessions with him.”

‘We have been working with Paul for two years now and have seen our business improve on many levels. Turnover has risen significantly and the profit even more so, all without increasing the size of the business in terms of personnel – we now just work a lot smarter.’


With Paul’s help, we are very clear on what we need to work on, can make quick decisions and are always held accountable for following our actions through. Because of this approach, what we have achieved over the last two years on top of the financial performance of the business has been amazing. We have a more motivated team, effective marketing and sales, a new website, and we have been able to make improvements to our workplace. I also have visibility of company performance via our dashboard.

On a personal level, I have reduced my hours and am now able to take longer holidays, safe in the knowledge that the business will run smoothly. This certainly was not the case in the past.

I would highly recommend Paul to any business owner, and am looking forward to working together on the next chapter of our business.”

‘Whilst running your own business it is easy to be busy and to get set in your ways. Investing in Paul as our Business Coach was invaluable as Paul approached the business with a fresh pair of eyes, bringing new ideas and business insights from a different perspective.’


He is a good listener and quickly grasps an understanding of your business and makes you take a step back and plan your business, rather than just firefighting on a daily basis. Paul has a wealth of knowledge gained from his various business roles and shares the benefit of this with his clients.

I would recommend Paul to anyone who wants to grow their business.”

“Paul is coaching me at the moment. I considered several coaches, and picked Paul due to his reputation and the fact that I needed someone who would challenge my weaknesses in my business.


“From the very start, Paul helped me to understand my personality, my strengths and difficulties, and most interestingly, how I interact with others.”


“Paul’s own personality is very easy to relax and be open and honest with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul as a coach, and often do if the opportunity arises.”

Liana Naylor – Inside Magazines – Worthing

“Paul is a knowledgeable and experienced business coach. Having him to discuss issues and ideas with, then make future plans and be accountable for those plans at the next session keeps the business on track and moving forward.”

“He’s also a really nice guy as well which helps. Highly recommended for anyone looking to maximise the potential of their business or just to have a regular sounding board so lone business owners don’t feel like they’re shouting into the wind.”

Mark Owen – Mocha Furniture – Worthing

“I have been saving people money on their residential and commercial bills for over 9 years and as I am constantly busy, it’s essential that anyone I work with offers me honesty, warmth and flexibility. My work always means putting my customer first even if that means walking away from potential business if it’s not in my customer’s best interest – value for money and making life simpler are key.

So, when I met Paul from ActionCOACH, his gentle and relaxed approach instantly put me at ease. Whilst I had never considered myself a target client for business coaching, I took the plunge and asked him to work with me for a short time frame, in order to help reach a significant milestone and target within my business.

Whilst we are currently only at the start of a 3-month journey, within the first 2 weeks my focus, activity levels, vision, accountability and confidence in my ability to achieve this target, have surpassed even my expectations. Our weekly mentoring sessions keep me motivated and his ability to lead me to come up with my own plans of activity through gentle questioning, is just what I need. I have had better results in the past 3 weeks than I have ever had in a single month of a 9 year career….even being contacted this evening to say that I was number 8 in the company so far this month (still 14 days left to run) out of 45,000 other partners. Paul has paid a large part in this achievement.

For this reason, I thoroughly recommend that all businesses get a coach. I didn’t think I needed one, but I guess that’s a sign of exactly who needs one! And I can see why Paul offers a moneyback guarantee – he knows he’ll never have to give it back!

“I am thrilled to have the pleasure of working with Paul, and my results thus far mean that I have no hesitation in recommending him to all businesses.”

“Paul has been a fantastic support to our business. We are a construction company based on the South Coast and Paul played an important role in enabling our business to navigate the difficult trading period during Covid-19.

Paul is approachable, friendly and target driven. Through the Action Coach format he was able to provide structured targets that enabled our business to successfully navigate the changes in business necessary due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The methods that Paul works to encourages accountability and for a business owner this is crucial. He not only breaks down your root causes of the key obstructions to a better business, but then guides you through creating a time driven framework to navigate the issues.

I highly recommend Paul McCarthy as a business coach and we hope to continue to work with him to develop and grow our business.”

Sean Tugnott – Character Homes – Worthing

“l would like to publicly thank Paul McCarthy for his excellent help. Both prior to Covid-19, and during, Paul has been an amazing support for me with my business.

He is approachable, patient and knowledgeable. He has a way about him that makes you want to follow his suggestions, it is as if he genuinely cares. l have recommended Paul to many of my friends and clients. l know he will guide them well during these difficult times.

Thank you once more Paul. You really will be one of the main reasons for my business being a greater success.”
