I stumbled across Andrew by chance, and to be honest was very sceptical at first. I have since enrolled in the online GPS course and couldn’t be happier. My favourite part was the term “laser focused” this was a real eye opener for me or as Andrew likes to call it “lightbulb moment” ! Just a different perspective on your business does wonders and really helps you see what you can improve or tweek. I genuinely feel I have got a focus now and can take my small business to the next level. Also as a side note, I did this during the recent pandemic and honestly Andrew took all the stress away by giving me a purpose...daily videos and updates. A members group where you can network with other likeminded people. Literally worth his weight in gold and would not hesitate to recommend. 100% thank you for your help now and in advance for the future ! Craig Atkinson removals
I've recently completed the GPS course with Andy. He's really friendly, down to earth and understands people from various backgrounds, be it sales, IT or a trade like myself. I really looked forwards to my Tuesday morning sessions. They really were the highlight of my week. I would happily recommend Andy and his Sherpa Guide System to anybody at any level.
Andy was an unbelievable help in focusing how I want the next 5-10 years to be shaped. My career, financials and lifestyle has completely changed and his GPS programme was a revelation. I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve your whole life and career

“Andy has without a doubt helped me turn my business around for the better!! I took part in the Success GPS course earlier this year when I was working 50+ hours a week and just could not see the end to it all! I needed a new plan, structure and goals and Andy helped me achieve all of these and more! The investment I made in his course was one of the best business decisions I have made, and I know that I can call on Andy at any point for help or advice. If anyone is looking to make changes to their business for the better and get that work/life balance back the Andy is your person 100%!!”
The Success GPS programme that Andy runs brings together loads of the leading systems and methods of building a successful business in an easy to understand and enjoyable way. This, coupled with Andy's passion and enthusiasm makes this a great investment for any new business owner or anyone who just needs to refocus!
Really enjoyed the course. It is simple, clear and easy to follow without being overly intense. The structure and content has given me a clear vision and strategy for the next ten years. I really recommend this course to anyone, especially those just starting their journey as well of those in the midst of it who seek further clarity, focus and direction. Fantastic value for money plus Andy continues to offer free of charge guidance, support and advice following its completion. Thank you Sherpa! Scott Chapman Scope Fire & Security Ltd
2 weeks ago I knew that my business needed clarity so when I heard about Success GPS I jumped at it. Now I not only have a clear big picture about where my business is going long term but I also know every day what my priorities are and what I'm working towards. This degree of focus, I know will fundamentally change my business. Thanks Andy!
Thanks for the course Andy, it has really helped. me to crystallise my next steps. As you know you can't coach yourself, so this has really helped me get clarity around what is missing. The first year of the plan is low key, lots of content to create, but then it will get interesting! Good structured process with clear materials and guidance. Later this year I will be ready to help leaders become good company for their company. I have taken the first step, and another, each day is just one more step to where I am going.
I'm so grateful I was given the chance to be part of the Career GPS programme with Andy. I wish I had been given the gift of this course when I was leaving school. I’ve wasted so much time searching outside for the right thing for me, when the answers were inside me all the time – I just needed to know how to find them. Andy guides you to look at your life, not just your career, analyse where you are right now, identify where you want to be in 10 years, then gives you a map to get there – no getting lost or time wasting! Thank you so much Andy Henderson
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Superb business programme with step by step progress to grow your business. I completed Andy's Success GPS course in the summer of 2020, the hardest year for business in my life. It helped me form a sustainable plan for my business. I now have a focussed, step by step plan for my business, how to get there, and my mind is a lot clearer. The programme gave exactly what it said on the tin. It also offered Andy's enthusiasm, positivity AND the support of the other business owners on the course. Support is vital when things are tough, and 2020 has been just that. TOUGH!! The support is ongoing, even though the course has finished. Andy is a Forward Thinking, straight talking, down to earth guy with a vision to help thousands of business owners like me. I can feel the benefits of the course already. Thank you Andy and Tribe #11
I had the pleasure of being invited to Andy and Lee’s Career GPS beta group, and although I'd heard good things about Andy and his coaching, I didn't think it was going to be for me, and I'm glad to say just how wrong I was! Andy & Lee have put together an incredible course that any career professional will get mountains of value from. Although being friendly and kind, Andy nor Lee won't hesitate to ask the sorts of the questions that you may not want to hear the answer from, but ultimately will help you on your journey. Big thanks to you guys for inviting on the journey and if you have the pleasure to work with Forward Thinking, Stay open minded and be prepared to come of the session a new person.

Hi Andy, Just wanted to say a big thank you for teaching us for the past few weeks! I’ve learned so much over these sessions, and incorporating the strategies you’ve given us (especially the ones where you break down huge goals into smaller ones and the one in Step 5 where we consider the impact achieving these goals will have on our family & the world, that was really motivating) has helped me a lot even in my daily life too. I hope things are going well for your new health GPS courses, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for the world in the future 🙂 Thank you for being our sherpa guide! Best, Nina (Innovator International team #1)

I recently signed up for Andy's Success GPS 6 week course through the Boost scheme and I have to say it was one of the best things I have done in my business. Napoleon Hill said we should begin with the end in mind. Andy's course helps you to define the end you're looking for, then plan effectively on how you will get there. Breaking everything down into simple steps and achievable objectives that brings clarity to the often complex and confusing concept of running a business. I highly recommend Success GPS to anyone in business, but especially those just starting out or struggling to drive their business forward.
Andy is an experienced and insightful person; I worked with Andy on a Lancashire Boost funded programme. We went through Andy's highly recommended GPS Success programme, which I used to help me shape up the work needed for a Tech Startup I have been working developing. Andy's support has been significant for me and my future, and I cannot recommend GPS Success more highly, Andy has become my own "Sherpa" helping my navigate to the top of the mountain.
Where do I start! So for me when setting up my business it was important to create a support network of people who I could bounce ideas off, get great advice and generally point me in the right direction when I was a little lost! Its important to me to align myself with individuals who have vast experience and who have already walked the routes I hope to, in order to be successful. Andy came recommended to me and immediately I was blown away by his energy, his warm friendly approach and his overall knowledge! He is genuinely one of the nicest people you could meet, so to have the opportunity to work with Andy was something I was not going to walk away from, specially when you take in to consideration his knowledge and experience. I was fortunate enough to receive support from BOOST Lancashire which enabled me to take a seat on the Success GPS 6 Week Course, and I have to say its made a huge impact to me and ultimately my business. The course was done remotely, alongside a great bunch of like minded individuals and who I have kept in contact with, we all help one another and follow each others success. The course material itself goes right back to your Why! Why are you in business? What is your destination? The content taps in to the emotional side of business, at the start so that you can then build a plan to get to your destination, and it is all planned out over a 10 year period, and broken down in to 1, 3, 5 and 10 year targets! Andy helps you so much and uses his own knowledge and experience which he has helped over 300 businesses with, he calls himself the 'Sherpa Guide' and he certainly lives up to it! He shows you the way! He shows you not what to do, and where you can make some quick wins, to really make a difference to your business. Honestly, in a world where business coaches are ten a penny, you need someone who gets it! Who does what it says on the tin! Andy is that! Get yourself booked on the Success GPS course and tap in to what Andy has to offer, I promise you, you will not be disappointed! Moving forward I now regard Andy as a friend, someone I can rely on, who I can call upon and who is one of the good ones in life! Thanks Andy, you're a top man and I will look forward to that coffee soon!
Andy is an exemplary professional coach. He exhibited a unique sense of interest in each individual and his insights and direction were always on target. I've always been very sceptical about coaching, perhaps since I am not keen on the 'forced fun' approach to learning but Andy's method was on point. Enthusiastic but tempered enough to effectively draw people in - demonstrative with his enviable ability to effectively 'read a room' and connect with people on their level. Some of the learnings were on my 'to-do list' but Andy has taught me how to attack each with vigour as well as identify the most proven methods to apply to each task. Plus he's made me much more aware of the financials and scalable targets that can be broken down into manageable chunks. I felt very supported and championed in the attainment of my goals throughout and actually found myself looking forward to each session. The course will no doubt prove to be a vital resource to me and I look forward to our continuing relationship.

Just completed Andy’s Success GPS Course and it has been fantastic. It’s provided me with a clear strategic long term vision for my business along with steps on how to make the ‘dream’ a reality! It’s given me focus, discipline and accountability to take time and work on my goals and provided me with the realisation on how easily these are achievable with the right processes and mindset. Thanks Andy!

Having started a new business in the last few months, I recently completed Andy's Success GPS course. Despite already having a detailed business plan for my business, the course gave me and my business some real focus on achieving my short and long term goals. Andy's enthusiasm is infectious and I would recommend this course to business owners, whether starting out or if they have been in business for years. Andy was always contactable and available for support and guidance throughout the course. I have no hesitation in recommending Success GPS to any business owner out there!

As a Owner of a 3 well established businesses and a Property Investor, COVID19 created mixed emotions! Some worrying but mostly being excitement of the business challenges ahead. Obviously this is an absolute health crisis and I don’t want anyone to think I’m overlooking that! Like everyone, I am worried for the health of family and friends! But we decided to use the time wisely and look at where we are in our business and where we want to go! I am a believer in things happen for a reason and I started chatting with Andy Henderson from Forward Thinking who offers the Business Sherpa Guide! I speak for me and my co-directors when I say it is the best thing we have ever done for our business. Analysing where we are, where we are going and EXACTLY how we are going to do it! It was such a refreshing new way of looking at things! We are well on the way to implementing improved strategies and the results are already happening! The future is bright if you plan for it! Thanks Andy from The Straight talking: Sustainable Design and Building Energy People! Looking forward to that beer! #positivity #constructionindustry #propertyinvestment #recruiting #developments
I have recently finished my online course with Andy, and I couldn't be more excited about my future. I found it hard to believe that at the end of 6 weeks I would have a blue print to success. Andy has pulled the rabbit out of the hat! He has constructed a process that helps you brain dump; facts, emotions and creative thinking. All this focused, written information ends up in an easy bitesize, day by day, week by week task list that is SO achievable. The lessons are backed up with enthusiasm, passion, great anecdotes and tutorials. It still seems incredible to me that all along I, and the other great forward thinkers I had the pleasure of working with, had the answers all along! Thank you to everyone at Success GPS for helping me to map out the future I want for me and my family.
Andy's Success GPS programme has left me with a cast iron belief that the success of my business is inevitable. I wasn't necessarily lacking in confidence before going through the programme, but I definitely wanted to test my Business Plan and firm up on some of the detail within it. The peace of mind I've ended up with is absolutely priceless! The programme starts by looking at where you are now before moving onto where you want to get to and, crucially, why. With the destination established, Andy walks you through a process to effectively reverse-engineer your journey, which takes you right under the bonnet of your own business. The result is a step-by-step plan - a map - to follow and track your progress. Knowing every single day that you're on the right path makes every day a win, no matter what it throws at you. The process is as simple as it is genius and I think therein lies the magic! It's my pleasure to highly recommend Andy and his Success GPS programme. Oh, and remember, you're just one step away!
