Interview with Gilly Woodhouse: How I took my coaching biz from £2k mo to £20k mo - FAST!

By Nick James

Nick is discussing with Gilly Woodhouse the journey she has taken from why it is her passion through to the changes that helped her to move up to the next level with her coaching business.

Any business journey has challenges and Gilly has continued to grow throughout the challenge of a worldwide pandemic. Her passion and commitment to serving those she works with is the key to why she has experienced huge success and the mastermind group she is a part of has given her an amazing business family and the opportunity to learn how to move her business up to the next level.



The vision, passion and drive are more important than anything else. Focusing on one thing a month was a crucial change that helped to grow the business. Restructuring the payments meant that clients had the option to pay in one payment or instalments improved the cash flow in the business. Getting a better cash flow means you can think more strategically and market and serve your customers from a better place. It’s important as you grow to get some help before you get to a point where you are struggling to cope with everything. When I introduced the mastermind program it changed everything. Now I have 6 1:1 VIP’s and 75 mastermind group members. If you are passionate and have a bigger mission then join a mastermind group. When you show up wanting to serve and help the magic happens. Believe in yourself and always keep going. You need to be continually asking ‘what more do my clients need?’



‘I’m even more creative and the mastermind group is an amazing business family to be a part of’

‘I can really make a difference and have an  impact on the clients I serve’

‘I’m very active in my community giving more and serving more’

Nick dropped out of university at the age of 21 and failed spectacularly with his first coaching business, which forced him to take a £16k/yr telesales job. 

Within 12 months he was the top performer and left to start his second business at 24. This time he discovered a winning formula and before long had a multi-six-figure company.

He then made a huge mistake which nearly put him out of business and cost him £50,000 in personal cash!

Fortunately, Nick kept it afloat, turned it around, and sold that business 2 years later in a seven-figure deal. 

He then co-founded a multi-million-pound marketing company, which he exited in 2015, and created Expert Empires.

Today, Expert Empires is known as the UK's number one business event for Experts, with world-renowned celebrity speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone, Chalene Johnson, David Goggins, and Lewis Howes gracing the stage.

Nick also specialises in helping Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Trainers, and Authors take their businesses from zero to six figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.
