When business is about people, planet and profit, in that order,
everyone wins

It’s up to us to create the world we want to live in

The values driving our businesses

Love-Surveying-Be-Kind

Surveying is so much more than the work you do on a daily basis, it's about your purpose, your values and the lives you touch.

I'm a huge supporter of Mary Portas' Kindness Economy and looking at how we can build an economy that's not just based on growth and profit, but also on the wellbeing of our people and planet.

We all get to play a small part. It's up to us to decide what's important and how we can help create the world we want to live in, and leave behind for future generations. That's why I have aligned my business with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

#3 Good health and well-being

People, planet, profit. People come first

Something I saw over and over, as I spent many years handling customer complaints and claims, was the emotional cost to everyone when things go wrong.

It's one of the reasons I focus so much on helping surveyors trust their gut to make good decisions, for themselves and their customers.

But, trusting your gut is difficult if you're feeling mentally drained, and mistakes are more likely to occur if you're run ragged.

Making your own health and wellbeing a priority is critical not just for you, but for your family and your customers. When you look after yourself, you're in a better place to look after everyone else. Your health and wellbeing has to come first.

#5 Gender Equality

People, planet, profit. Our beautiful planet

Love-Surveying-Our-Beautiful-Planet

The smallest things can make the biggest difference. From signposting a website about sustainability to letting customers know about their nearest recycling centre, there are so many ways that, together, we can play our part in looking after our planet and empowering the people who live on it.

One of the causes I'm committed to supporting is The Hunger Project, who are working to end extreme hunger and poverty by 2030.

When you invest in yourself and your business, through 1:1 coaching or the Love Surveying mastermind, part of your investment will go to The Hunger Project's Unleashed Women initiative, empowering women to lead community development projects to end hunger in their villages.

#8 Decent work and economic growth

People, planet, profit. Business for good

For your career and business to feel good, do good and give you the life you want it needs to be successful and profitable. Nobody benefits from you struggling to make ends meet.

I help surveyors who are passionate about what they do, harness that energy and enthusiasm so they can recognise their value and get paid what they're worth.

Making a healthy profit means you get to do more of the work you love, with the people you love working with. It also means you get to contribute in the ways you want to, make the impact you want to make and leave the legacy you want to leave.

When you do well, everyone wins.

I am happier and

more successful

“I spent years developing a training product with lots of potential but not enough market share or income. Marion helped me analyse my different business streams, and link them to my values. She taught me how to step up, be more visible in an authentic way, without burning out. Sales of my Revision Guides are up 30%, as are my other services. I am happier and more successful.”

Why I do what I do

Love-Surveying-Why-I-Do-What-I-Do

I saw first hand, at a young age, the devastating impact it can have on a family when something goes wrong with their home.

When my mum purchased her 1950's council house, under the right to buy scheme back in the 80's, the bank told her she didn’t need a survey as it was a terrace.

That was bad advice. The house was in poor condition and the floor, which had sulphate attack, eventually started to sag. With interest rates at 15% she couldn't afford to get it repaired, and had to live with it for many years before she finally got help from the council.

Stories like my mum's were not uncommon. Although I didn't realise it at the time, it was seeing how something a survey would have picked up caused my mum so much distress, that led me to qualifying as a chartered surveyor in 2004.
