Unless you have experienced this level of insight it is difficult to articulate but it affects every aspect of one’s life, a shift in thinking

I undertook the DNA test and follow up coaching expecting to identify some points I could refine and work on. But I left with vastly more….. Paul and Carl uncovered some foundational values I hold, that have been acting out on a day to day basis but I was consciously unaware of. Unless you have experienced this level of insight it is difficult to articulate but it affects every aspect of one’s life, a shift in thinking. This has resulted in naturally aligning my everyday actions with my purpose, making me feel more certain, more purposeful more empowered. Taking a DNA test and a follow on coaching call is the real deal, incredibly empowering. For anyone who is committed to taking the next step, getting unstuck or just committed to their personal growth, I 100% recommend.

“You will get great value just from that call, just imagine how much value you can create working with them over the longer term.”

I decided to undertake the Undercover Entrepreneur process with the idea of having 2 coaches instead of one both helping you with the same end goal being the deciding factor. The initial questionnaire was mentally stimulating and refreshing allowing you to write as much or as little as you wanted to answer the questions. I am certain the more open you are, the more it helps Carl and Paul understand you, giving you the best opportunity to excel.

The second stage (the call) was great fun and another mental workout. How Carl and Paul work together is truly fantastic, the blend of EQ and IQ and the very different characters that they are is immensely rewarding to work with, helping me to get underneath the pretext and context of my answers to the questionnaire. There was a great deal of empathy and respect in equal measure that was there to help the individual find and understand themselves with very helpful questioning. It felt just like a chat amongst friends by the end!

I have thought about working with a coach for some time and had not yet taken the plunge as I hadn’t worked out what I wanted to work on. Paul and Carl have helped me answer this question as part of this discovery. A great bonus!

If you are someone who is starting out in business or just wants to be the best of themselves, working with Carl and Paul could be the best decision you ever make. I have not found another coaching solution where you can truly work on both sides of yourself. I would encourage you to have an exploratory call and see if it works for you. You will get great value just from that call, just imagine how much value you can create working with them over the longer term.

Carl and Paul are both amazing to work with to help you figure out how to combine your passions together to create a business from it. Both of them genuinely care about people and can see things that you are not able to see yourself.”

“Right from the first few minutes of the discussion Carl and Paul discovered things about me that I did not believe were obvious and that they had gained an insight into what were my roadblocks and holding me back from moving on.”

I met Carl through LinkedIn and we had a call to discuss what Undercover Entrepreneur do. During that discussion I got to understand the IQ and EQ make up of the company that fascinated me as I believed I have strong IQ and low EQ abilities and that the impasse I was going through was being driven by my belief systems. I agreed to do the DNA believing it would be one of the standard psychometric tests, perhaps slightly modified to meet the criteria being looked at by Undercover Entrepreneur. I mentioned to them I was going into the process with low expectations but decided at the outset what I would get out of the process would be in proportion to what I put in. The answers I gave were as clear and unambiguous as possible. I was surprised at how simple and unlike psychometric or personality profile tests I have taken in the past the DNA was. What my experience has been so far is that right from the first few minutes of the discussion I realised that both Carl and Paul had discovered things about me through the questionnaire that I did not believe were obvious from the questions asked and that they had gained an insight into what were my roadblocks and holding me back from moving on and why my energy levels were down.

MY low expectations were definitely not warranted. In subsequent sessions more of the details behind what is causing my impasse and not knowing what direction to go in have been unearthed just by the friendly atmosphere and the questioning in a non-threatening manner.

My belief is now that I do possess higher EQ than when I entered the process and my intuition of the blend of IQ and EQ strengths as well as their differing backgrounds is what really made and is making the difference.

“It’s not like any training I’ve ever done before. It gave me the opportunity to dig deep, look into myself and discover who I am as an individual and an entrepreneur, so that I can start to work from the inside out.”

Carl and Paul are 2 of the most amazing, intelligent and well-established gentlemen that I know.

When I purchased DNA, I was expecting to just get to speak to Carl and Paul and that they would offer a few tools and basic pieces of advice, as was the case with other trainings that I have done in the past. What I actually got out of DNA was much more. It’s not like any training I’ve ever done before. It gave me the opportunity to dig deep, look into myself and discover who I am as an individual and an entrepreneur, so that I can start to work from the inside out. When you first look at yourself it puts a whole new perspective on how you look at your goals, your dreams and the way you envision your life, so that you can start to develop a new and better you.

For those of you thinking about doing DNA I highly recommend it. This is the best thing that has ever happened. Since I had that call and went through this process my life has changed, my relationships have changed, my business has changed – it has accelerated and I am moving on a whole new path.

“By it changing my thought process my outlook on life has changed.”

The idea behind the DNA process is to unlock your own mind. Going into the process expecting a specific result limits the possibility of something completely new coming from it, It opened my eyes to not being afraid of different routes to achieve the same end. It also made me realise that time management is one of the huge factors in success. As a process it was very enjoyable and professional and it changed the way that I look at opportunities and challenges that I come across by tackling them in a way that previously I would never have thought. By it changing my thought process my outlook on life has changed.

“These obstacles are now out of my way and I have made more progress in the past month, than the previous 7 months combined. Truly amazing are the benefits that I am seeing out of Business DNA. It is the best decision that I have made for myself and the future of my company.”

My experience with the Business DNA experience was a very good one. I went in with an expectation for the DNA and Coaching to be one of Business strategies and advice. The questions were very probing and diverse, but the reasoning for some of them were only clear in the analysis with Carl & Paul.

This was truly insightful, collaborative discussion that had so many reveals for me. The understanding of WHAT you are really looking to achieve and WHY it is important to you cut right to my soul.

These questions really tied all of the answers together at the end and with this deeper understanding of my WHAT & my WHY, allowed me to see that my initial HOW I was going to accomplish this was small in my thinking. I had not tied all of my reasons for what I was planning into the real, central core of WHY I wanted to start this business. This revealing of my WHY to myself, through the Business acumen and Emotional Quotient that Carl & Paul excel at, really moved me forward towards understanding the fulfilment that I was looking to achieve. With this full understanding, I am now able to better develop my business as I am focusing on the WHY I want it, and not distracted on the HOW I am going to do it. These obstacles are now out of my way and I have made more progress in the past month, than the previous 7 months combined. Truly amazing are the benefits that I am seeing out of Business DNA. It is the best decision that I have made for myself and the future of my company.

“Even just writing this review has made me think a bit more about my business!”

The questions I had to complete were searching and certainly made me think a lot. I am typically analytical anyway, so always into this type of approach. Just answering the questions themselves was good, but then when I had the joint Zoom call with Carl and Paul it was really enlightening. I scribbled endless notes.

They also sent me a recording of the call, so I rewatched this and understood more, subtle things. The follow up call was very good too, I very much liked the humour that the three of us shared. This may be because I am generally light hearted and they flex their delivery to suit the recipient. I am sure for someone who is 100% professional and utterly focused on their business, Carl and Paul will keep in that manner.

I certainly learnt a lot about myself, bringing it from the subconscious to the conscious mind, it made me focus on my business, helped me to structure my working week, which I was more used to in my previous career.

Even just writing this review has made me think a bit more about my business! I am now inclined to go back and watch the Zoom recording again.

“It’s something that’s difficult to explain but once you’ve done it, the process is quite remarkable.”

On first looking through THE DNA Profile, it it did seem quite daunting as I’m not someone who finds it easy to articulate the kind of self analysis that it calls for. Having stared at it for a while I then summed up the courage to work through the profile. For someone like me who is naturally reserved in talking about oneself it seemed somewhat unnatural to go through the process. However, as I got more and more into the process I found it easier as you kind of peeled away the layers of the proverbial onion. I’m not sure what I expected the final product to look like but it was interesting to see some common themes coming through – things that defined who you were, your values and a reflection of what’s truly important to you as an individual. Whilst the results weren’t surprising per se, the fact that they came through at various stages of ones life and actions did then make me stand back and think “Ah…. That’s who I am, or that’s what defines me”. It’s something that’s difficult to explain but once you’ve done it, the process is quite remarkable. I did find that a few weeks into the process it was useful to revisit the DNA and to update it as you star to see things in a different light and also thought of more things that were relevant to add. I found the time spent with Carl and Paul very useful and stimulating and we then agreed to work over a longer period of time. This has been really useful as the regular contact helps keep me focused on the work we’re doing and the coaching has been very useful. Our conversations are almost always three way ones and this helps as you get different perspectives as each brings a different set of skills to the table.

Despite ours being a “long distance relationship” (we are 6,000 miles and 5 ½ hours apart) Carl and Paul have been most accommodating of timings in terms of scheduling our regular calls and connects. It’s been a great journey and I look forward to an ongoing journey.

“It is also very apparent that they care about their clients.”

The great thing about the DNA profile is that it combines the skills of Carl, who is very methodical, very good at building habits, great attention to detail, and Paul who is a little more intuitive and can really get to the crux of what is going on with you and your business quite quickly. It is very apparent that they work well together. They combine their skills and are able to identify issues and what is going on and then offer solutions which are practical and relevant to you. It is also very apparent that they care about their clients. It is definitely worth while giving the DNA Profile a go – you will not be disappointed.
