Attract clients you want to work with
Build the business you want to build
Make the impact you want to make
You love surveying, but do you love running your business?
You'll have any number of reasons for starting your business. You wanted to get off the treadmill. You wanted to be your own boss. Maybe you saw an opportunity and thought "Let's give it a go". All great reasons.
But, being 'in the business of surveying' also means having to master skills such as:
- promoting yourself
- explaining the value you provide
- attracting & engaging the right clients
And, if you want your business to thrive:
- making sales!
The problem is, those things might not come easily to you. If they don't, you're not alone. And, you are in the right place...Work with me
WORK WITH ME
Whatever success looks like for you,
I'm here to help you achieve it.
Utilising my specialist sector experience and network, I support many organisations including customer and employee experience, engagement and insight, culture and approach to risk and claims in your business.
Always up for a chat and a brainstorm.
I have a limited number of slots each month to work more closely with surveyors of all kinds. If you feel stuck and need motivation to take the next step, whatever stage of your career you are at, get in touch.
Sometimes a sounding board is all you need.
My 12-month mastermind for small business owners is a confidential circle of trust and regular coaching can help transform your business, improve your confidence and work-life balance.
Let's have a chat and see if I can help.
Building a business doing what you love shouldn't be so hard.
NICE TO MEET YOU
I'm Marion Ellis
With over 20 years of experience in the residential property sector, I know what it's like to try and find all the answers on your own or to feel like there's a missing piece but not know what it is or what's possible.
I've seen the profession from every side and focused much of my career on customer complaints and claims. I've worked in corporate and small business environments before getting off the exhausting treadmill and working for myself. So, I know the terrain and how important it is to find a path that feels right for you.
Your best compass is knowing yourself, learning to trust your instincts, and making decisions about your career, and life that feels aligned with your values and what matters to you.
I wanted to offer the support, tools, and structure I wished I'd had access to during my career in both corporate and SME environments and when I finally bit the bullet and went out on my own.
I'm passionate about supporting those in my profession who want to do more, be more, and give more. For me, professional development and personal well-being go hand in hand. I created Love Surveying, a place for surveyors like you to face, share and confidently handle the unique pressures and challenges of building a business and doing what you love.

“For someone who runs a small business and is directly responsible for the day-to-day business decisions, the Love Surveying Mastermind is proving to be a unique place for support, unlike anything I have seen in the last 25 years!”
The life of a surveyor can be a lonely one. Who do you talk to, and where do you go to get the advice, guidance and support you need?
We do this work for a reason, and being interested in the practical technical stuff is only part of the story. We want to make a difference in people's lives, from roofs over their heads to recreation and workspaces. And all with impact.
Surveying is about people, how we live and the means to do so.
People. Planet. Profit. In that order.
Trying to work out what's important to you, how you can make a difference and how to do the work you love without burning out can have you going around in circles, especially when you've only got yourself to discuss it with.
It's so easy to get overwhelmed with all the things when you are stuck in your head. And an over- whelmed mind does nothing.
What makes the difference is the right kind of support, hanging out with people who have the same values and allowing yourself to have fun and experiement.
