Episode 60: TJ Duncan, MBE – Courage to Create Your Own Success
TJ is the founder of Business Glu (www.Businessglu.co.uk), an improvement specialist that is passionate about helping others. TJ works with businesses that appreciate the benefits of having someone with the knowledge and skillset she has, to take a birds’ eye view of their business and recognize barriers and opportunities that leaders, owners, and senior teams don’t have the time or experience to see.
She provides passionate, caring, ambitious business leaders that spend their time ‘in’ the business, the help, guidance, and hands-on approach to lead them to success whilst improving the broken areas of the business. She sees what others don’t; the fragmented teams, the disjointed management style, or the loosely termed ‘processes’ that are costing you time and money. Also using her contacts, experience, and know-how of identifying and taking advantage of the opportunities available that are often vague.
TJ has demonstrated results with her credible portfolio of business solutions, understanding from experience the sense of feeling powerless but more importantly how to get rid of these thoughts. TJ establishes that bond, allowing you to enjoy your business again and it not feel a burden with the vicious circle scenario.
TJ wants you to feel as hungry for success as you did in the beginning and as excited with what opportunities are available, making them possible. TJ has experienced the emotional drain and lack of motivation for those most accountable and this is why she does what she does. Sharing ways to beat negativity, proving it isn’t healthy or necessary to feel this way, making those in the business the heroes.
As a married mom of two, TJ divides her spare time between her family and tending to her collection of animals that all live at home with her. Having owned horses and ponies since the age of 9 she is a keen equestrian and now enjoys retraining her two ex-racehorses to become happy hackers for her and her daughters to enjoy countryside rides.
TJ won an award for Businesswoman of the Year in 2016, which was an immense achievement. Then, in 2021, TJ was nominated for an MBE – Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire – for Female Entrepreneurship. <The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry, rewarding contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organizations, and public service outside the civil service. It was established in 1917 by King George V and comprises five classes across both civil and military divisions.>
