The Brilliance 

is in the

In many of the businesses I have owned & run, from 5 people to 200 people, I have felt like the business had a complete grip on me. 

I spent every waking moment either working in the business or at home worrying about the business. I was both stressed and overwhelmed.

Rather than feeling in control of the business, I felt like the business was in control of me.

I was micromanaging & working long hours because I couldn’t trust others to do the work. I was burned out, ready to walk away. Read my full story & you'll find out what happened to me, to enable me to let go.

Until you are able to ‘let go’ you will never build the business, or the life, that you want & need.


What gets me jumping out of bed each morning is working with business owners like you.  Helping you see the warning signs, working through the issues in your business and working with you & your leadership team to put the right people & systems in place.  Then you can let go.


I help business owners reclaim their life!


Is it easy?  No! Nothing worthwhile in life is. 

If you are reading this now, many things will be starting to click for you.  You, like me, are someone who values having both a better business & a better life.  The two can go hand in hand.


  • Don’t lose the things that are important to you.

  • You don’t have to be working long hours & doing things that you don’t enjoy.

  • You too can have a great business with time to pursue other passions.

My name is Debra Chantry-Taylor. As a Professional EOS Implementer, Leadership Coach & Entrepreneurial Business owner, I have a unique mix of business ownership experience, academic qualifications & professional training & accreditations. I also have a natural curiosity & love of people, so I love working with Business Owners & their Leadership team to get what they want!

  • Lack of Control

  • People Issues

  • Lack of Profit

Feeling like your business has a grip on you rather than you having a grip on the business?

  • Stressed & overwhelmed

  • Feeling like you've hit the ceiling

  • You've tried everything & nothing worked

I know what it feels like because I have been there too

BUT it doesn't have to be that way!

Are you experiencing any of the following?

EOS Implementer

A better life comes from owning & operating a better business, achieved through strong leadership.

A strong leader has a clear vision & strongly communicates this. They have passion, integrity, are humbly confident & work for the greater cause. They surround themselves with the right people & they support them. They know what to focus on & lead with courage.

Entrepreneurial Leaders also get easily distracted. It's part of who we are as Entrepreneurs. So it's important for us to ask for help to get that focus & surround ourselves with the right people.

I help you get what you want out of business & life!

Using the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS),  my unique blend of experience as a Business Leader & Entrepreneur myself plus the Leadership Coaching & Business Coaching tools & skills that I have, I can help you & your team to become better leaders & create a business that elevates you to achieve better results.

Let me take you on a journey...


Sometimes we forget what we're capable of or worse, what we love.

Life's setbacks can have us self-doubting or unable to see what's possible. We bring limitations to ourselves & start self-sabotaging.

I know because I have been there!

Through moving countries, not once but twice, the loss of  a business through receivership early on in my Entrepreneurial Career, the personal loss of both my brother & my Mum, who meant so much to me, within the space of 10 months whilst trying to build a new business, losing my house & my beloved sports car to fund a business that ultimately didn't fulfil my dreams... 

I know what it feels like to experience setbacks & success!

What I have learned is that it's how you deal with the setbacks that makes the difference. I have come through all of this & out the other side as a stronger leader, a better person & with a life that I genuinely love. 

I have many stories I can share - I can make you laugh, I can make you cry & I can make you cringe. I can make you wish you were me & I can make you glad that you're not!


What I want to do most of all is to Inspire you to chase your dreams, choose your attitude, adjust your mindset & get the right inspiration & support to build a life that you love through building a better business. 

The Brilliance is in the Simplicity!
