"I have just started working with Quentin and have learned so much. He just helped me complete an important deal. I feel very grateful. He has delivered more than I expected so I strongly recommend him. He will help you make things happen." - Sophia Wu - Fashion Designer - London - YHIM.co.uk
"My company is called Superglue, and we are the premier events production company in London. We had reached a plateau and one person kept coming up on our radar. His name was Quentin Pain. We hired him and tripled the value of the company." - Jane Morley
"Hi, I'm Quentin Pain. I've started 6 different businesses over 37 years. I hit the jackpot in my first and was able to retire at 27. But that's boring, so I did it again and my last company earned revenues of £1.73m and grew from zero to 36,000 customers. With the right approach anyone can succeed."
I was a musician travelling from Cambridge to London. All I had was my drum kit (which lived in London) and my motorcycle (to get me there). All I wanted to be was a rock star.
Rock Star Delivery Service Instead
On my travels I noticed these guys delivering packages on motorbikes. So I quit London and started a motorcycle courier business in Cambridge instead.
Three years later we had 18 riders and two offices. I had no knowledge of business let alone marketing. I just told people what we did, gave them a price list and phone number and they started ordering. I thought business was a piece of cake.
No Business Plan - No Problem!
This was a business without a business plan, cashflow forecast or any of the other things we're told we need. Yet it went from zero to £250,000 within a few years. Why?
Why was it successful so fast?
We became Number 1 because we were cheaper, faster and better. Today I now see we were using a strategy, but back then we had no notion of strategy or why it mattered.
Here's two examples of other successful cheap companies:
Apple make the cheapest Apple computers by being unique. That uniqueness is how they stay the cheapest. They are also arguably the best even if it's just for the simple reason you don't need anti-virus software. Apple are the second largest company in the world (behind Saudi Aramco) and Number 1 in their sector.
Amazon are the cheapest (on many things) - they let their suppliers fight over price instead (the suppliers take the risk). And like Apple they're not in a "race to the bottom" when it comes to pricing. Amazon are the 6th largest company in the world, and the Number 1 retailer. Not bad for cheap!
These are not 'tricks'. They're facts. And anyone can do it.
Demand and Supply
Finding a demand is the first step. The second step is setting a goal. The best goals can be summed up in a few words. For No 1 Club members it's to become No 1 in your market (because it's the only way I know to guarantee success).
Once you've found a demand and set a goal, you're ready to figure out a strategy. A strategy is not a tactic. It's a way of doing things that involves numerous tactics. It's the tactics that change, not the strategy.
Like goals, the best strategies can be described in a few words. As you now know, for my courier company it was three words: "Faster, Better, Cheaper".
A strategy is something that stays in your head all the time. It never varies. Everything else you dream up is weighed against your strategy. If it fits, you use it. If it doesn't, you throw it out.
No Strategy. No Win.
We were Faster (motorbikes beat cars). We were Cheaper (less fuel costs). And that meant we were Better right from the word go. Our customers loved us. We turned up on time and we delivered on time no matter how bad the traffic.
In January 2013 I set up a program to help entrepreneurs become number 1 in their market.
I called it The Number One Club. It combines a unique step by step online course together with confidential coaching and mentoring.
The Number One Club
It's called The Number One Club because its intention is single minded. There is only one mission: every member is committed to becoming No 1 in their market by serving their customers better than all their competitors. We work on this together until you achieve the success you want.
You make the rules (just like the big companies do) and you force your competitors to try to keep pace. Since you're always at least two steps ahead, they never will, and your lead extends (the company that focuses more on their customers than anyone else in their market will always win).
This is only what your customers deserve of course. And it has the big advantage of making them super loyal.
Businesses who are No 1 by definition are successful. If a sector exists or can be created (ie. there is a demand for something), then the top player is guaranteed success.
Can You Become Number 1 In Your Own Market?
The Number One Club forces you to focus more deeply than you have ever done before. Single minded focus and action is the only way to become No 1. If you're not focusing this way, someone else will eventually step in.
We cut out the 'busy' work that holds you back and focus on the work that counts. The work that will get you to the No 1 position in your market.
It takes dedication, but it's not hard once you understand some principles, and it's those we start with in The Number One Club.
With The Right Support You Can Achieve Anything
The problem with most courses is the lack of support. This is why mentoring and coaching is so important. It's now mandatory in professional sport - if you don't have a coach you slip down the rankings.
It's the same in business, but right now, the gap between those who are mentored and those who are not is massive. There is a real opportunity to make a difference to your business. And when you become a member of The Number One Club you're getting that difference.
"Quentin knows so much about so many subjects, whether we are talking about marketing or help with writing. I highly recommend him, He's also fun to work with!!" - Josephine Cropper - JMC Psychotherapy (No 1 trauma therapist in Lancashire)
Why Quentin Pain?
In 2015 I helped 15 UK businesses to grow. Three of them you've already met from the testimonials above. Two more had case studies done by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
As a result, I was voted in the top 10 of UK Business Advisers by Enterprise Nation. The judges included Emma Jones MBE and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Emma Jones was made the Small Business Crown Representative by the UK's new PM, Theresa May.
Professional Expert Support Is Priceless
If anything was easy, we could all just read a book and do it. But it isn't. Even an MBA won't help you become No 1 in your market no matter how hard you work.
And there is a huge difference between "being in business" and "succeeding in business". The Number One Club is only concerned with the latter.
If you're in business and you want help to grow it, the best person to ask will always be someone who has already done it.
"Within one month of working with Quentin, I was so impressed with what I'd learnt in a short amount of time, that I had another colleague sign up as well" - Lisa Lee - BubbleliciousTea.com (No 1 Bubbletea distributor in the UK)
What's In The Number One Club?
In The Number One Club you don't just get me, you also get The Number One Club course and framework. This will guide you along step by step on the foundational work necessary to keep you on the path. Let's take a look at that:
Unless I can motivate you to produce the stuff you're really capable of doing in the right way so it starts to attract attention, you may as well give up now and accept mediocrity. Because that is what most people do. So I have a simple set of procedures that if you stick to (and they're really really easy to do) then you will be starting in the right place.
Your future is about ideas and innovation, and if you've ever been stuck for ideas in business, this will really blow your mind. You will never be stuck again. I guarantee it. It's why we must start with productivity.
Don't for one second think that philosophy doesn't matter. Your philosophy is WHY you get up every morning and do what you do. I'm going to show you something you won't find in any other course on how to use your philosophy (whatever it may be) to your HUGE advantage.
When you apply your philosophy to life and business, your customers will start to really understand not only why they chose you in the first place, but why they MUST stick with you forever. If there is one single difference between winners and losers, it is this.
With productivity and philosophy under our belt, then and only then can we start to look for and understand our audience. Our audience is the people who are going to propel us to the top of the market. I'm going to show you how to use leverage to massively scale your business. And we start with our audience - who they are, where to find them, and how to convince them so they believe it was their idea to buy from you.
Knowing your audience is one thing, but positioning yourself and your brand as the best is quite another. Al Reis, an advertising guru, coined the term positioning in 1972, but without it, your audience won't know where you stand. And if they don't know where you stand (in relation to what they need) they won't pick you. This is your line in the sand.
We've done the groundwork, and now we're ready to put it into practice. There are 5 stages involved with growing your business, and they all revolve around the one thing that defines a business: Customers. Let's look at them:
But it doesn't stop there. The Number One Club online membership site includes a bonus section where I add everything else you need to ensure you become No 1 in your market. This includes my Mastery Guide to PR.
I also add new bonuses from time to time to keep you up to date with the latest innovations in marketing.
Monthly One to One Mentoring
Your membership includes monthly sessions with me either on the phone or on Skype. It's 100% confidential. Just you and me working solely on growing your business.
And on top of that, you can contact me anytime on email. Whatever issues, questions or problems you face, I'm here to help you make sense of it. When you become a member of The Number One Club, you get private confidential access to me 24/7.
OK But How Do I Know If Your Advice Will Help Me?
I have a bullet proof guarantee. But first, I can tell you that every single client I've ever had has loved our work together and found it more than beneficial to both themselves and their business. Let's take a look at three more of them:
I've known Quentin for over 6 years and he is a model of excellence and knowledge when it comes to business. I highly recommend him.
I have been working with Quentin over the last year to further develop and generate growth for my business. Quentin has gone above and beyond in every regard, and is a pleasure to work with. I would wholeheartedly recommend Quentin to anyone who is looking to push their business to the next level, and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.
There is a big, vast difference between what makes a good coach/mentor and what makes an absolutely phenomenal coach/mentor. Quentin is most definitely one of the great coaches I've been fortunate enough to work with.
So How Do I Join?
The Number One Club is limited to a small number of members as there is only one of me.
Membership of The Number One Club costs £999 per month. You can stay as long as you like and cancel at any time.
I also understand you're taking a risk, so I want to remove that risk. If you join and decide you don't like it for any reason (or no reason at all) within the first 30 days, I will give you back every penny - no quibble.

"Quentin really gets you to explore your business potential and exactly who you're targeting, whilst gently questioning you and opening your mind up. You're given a wealth of information and knowledge but when the penny drops and it all comes together, everything will make sense and you're left with a completely different perception of how to manage your business. I walked in without any expectations or goals and already I have a clear cut vision for the next 18 months to drive me." - Lisa Lee - Bubble Tea Expert - London - Bubblelicioustea.com
