At Advocate Business Services™ we help entrepreneurs, business owners and senior executives to think, act and behave differently to their competitors to consistently produce superior results. In fact, clients refer to us as their business enzyme: by adding us to their mix we’ve helped them accelerate their ambitious business growth and fall deeply back in love with their business all over again. The ultimate end result: we help business owners create a business that successfully runs whether they turn up or not!

2). You’ll complete our unique Fix Build Sell Survey which shows whether your business is in Fix, Build or Sell Mode, and key areas that need priority focus.
3). You'll have a 1:1 Initial Strategy Session with Martin Norbury to get clear on your Business Model, and what you want out of the business.
4). You’ll join our Slack Community with other business owners like to cultivate community, celebrate wins, and get support.

In total…You’re getting everything you need.
The ability to have Clarity…
The right Plan…
And the ability to ask to ensure you’re making the right choices at the right time.
This is a really unique experience. We’ve been working with entrepreneurs across 70+ different industry sectors. Those Entrepreneurs have had massive results. And because this is not a cookie cutter experience and you get YOUR plan; this works no matter where you are, how long you’ve been in business, what size you are, what sector you’re in.

"Everyone needs a Martin Norbury in their business! What a tremendously knowledgable and accomplished business man. Inspiring stuff." - Charlie
After a family tragedy in 2010, Martin left his role as CEO at a plc and set-up his own business with one aim - to help business owners choose their tomorrow (whatever that looked like for them). His wife, Jacki, also left corporate life and joined the family business in 2014. They are uniquely placed to bring big business thinking to the SME world, as well as understand the opportunities, challenges and pressures when it comes to running a family business!
Martin set-up Advocate Business Services over ten years ago to help business owners choose what they do with their tomorrow. His passion to help entrepreneurs achieve their success was the ultimate driver behind his #1 Amazon Bestseller I don’t work Fridays.
He set-up his own business in 1991 using a little bit of office space lent to him by some friends, which despite not having a purpose, went on to successfully exit and sell (twice over).
Many years later he generated some impressive results as CEO at a plc, turning a loss of £250k per month to celebrating its first £1 of profit in just a matter of months.
Martin took these learnings to create his unique SCALE Model to openly share and transfer to others; it's a framework for how to rapidly grow a business enabling an exit and it has earned companies £Millions.
Martin is a multi-award winner including: Britain’s Top 10 Business Adviser 2018, Top 25 Champion of Entrepreneurship in Smith & Williamson Power 100, and APCTC Business Mentor of the Year 2015.
Jacki has over 25 years’ strategic & tactical marketing experience from multinational corporations, through to small businesses. During that time she's held senior positions in Marketing, PR, Branding, Communications, Corporate Responsibility and Product Management.
In 2014, Jacki joined Martin to become a husband and wife team as Co-Director of Advocate Business Services, and since then has helped business owners Fix, Build & Sell in order to have more time and money.
You can keep going as long as you need to, and we do ask that you initially commit for 6 months to ensure you get momentum from execution. Because this is a personalised mentorship experience, this is simple, easy and effective. The way all business growth should be. You’re getting one of the best (and possibly only) mentors who specialises in Fix, Build, Sell and can bring BIG business thinking to the SME world (again, very rare).
In order to keep this easy for us, we decided that we wouldn’t use any type of salesperson nor tactics, allowing for simplicity and ease. If you look at the value you’re having here, most programs cost between £2,000 to £3,500 per month that have the same level of value, without the experience that we bring to the table. Today, you have the ability to invest for £500 (+ VAT) per month – this includes an Initial 1:1 Strategy Call with Martin Norbury, and a Weekly Group Call. You can then choose to add on ANY of the following:
Monthly 1:1s with Martin Norbury (+ £500 per month) via Zoom or in London (1 hour).
Quarterly Board Meetings with Martin Norbury (+ £500 per month) either via Zoom or in London (3 hours).
Join our new Mastermind with Martin and a select group (+ £500 per month) to be held once a month in London (please note this will have limited membership).
Flexibility is the key here and you can pick and choose as many elements as you wish – they are not in any particular order. So, for example, starting from the Basic Intro of £500, you can also have a Monthly 1:1, taking your total to £1,000 per month (+VAT). Or you may wish to skip the monthlies and have a Quarterly Board Meeting, so this total again would be £1,000 per month (+VAT). Should you wish to become part of the Mastermind, then this would simply be an extra £500 +VAT per month.
