Here’s some information about our guest, Gareth:


Gareth Everson, Founder & Coach, Lemonade Plan

Gareth helps business owners and the client services businesses who serve them to use CRM, email marketing, and automation solutions. In 12 years, he's helped to systemise more than 375 businesses, including ones sold in 8-figure acquisitions and others who've turned into sizeable franchises. 

After years of coaching individually and in small groups, he's recently launched a business community and online training programme called 'Soloprenyear' to help people who've turned their expertise into a business to crack some of the marketing and sales operational problems that they never imagined they'd have and which even much larger businesses with bigger budgets struggle to solve.

Something Interesting About Gareth:

Before I was 30, I'd worked in five different countries and learned four different languages. But since Zoom, and becoming a dad to two now teenage kids, I've only worked in one. Isn't the internet fantastic?!


What are you famous for, Gareth?

My clients regularly call me 'challenging', 'mature' and 'relentless'. I'm not sure I'm proud of any of those descriptions though! 'Infamous', perhaps, rather than 'famous'.
