Growing Your Business

Supporting you to develop & grow 

21 tips for Entrepreneurial SuccessWho are you

You are a B2B business owner, who has been running a business for at least 12 months and is somewhat established.

You are passionate about your work and you have established a customer base of loyal customers who love your product or service. 

You now want to grow your business and multiply your income but need the right strategy, team, finances and systems to maximise the opportunities available to you.

You are a high achiever but you struggle with a completely full schedule and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. As a result, you have little or no time for yourself and you are probably feeling guilty about neglecting those who are most important to you.

What your issues tend to be

You want to grow, but have no strategy or clear action steps to make this happen.  You are the bottleneck in the business because nothing gets done without you doing it or approving it.

You are working really hard, perhaps too hard and you are stagnating because you haven’t been able to take the business forward and grasp the opportunities available. This sometimes makes you stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted.

Cashflow is a focus and you want to ensure the investment in your growth plans does not impact on the business you have already established.

You are not 100% confident on how to make it happen, so have not always grasped the opportunities available to you.

You need more customers to grow but your present marketing strategy isn’t bringing the consistent results you desire.

You’re struggling with all or some of the following:

  • 51 more proactive ways to win more customersDeveloping a strategy and plan that you are confident will deliver the growth you desire to maximise your opportunities.
  • Your lack of confidence to actually make it happen or fell overwhelmed with the potential actions needed.
  • To understand the real numbers in your business, that drive the growth and make those numbers work for your future success
  • Finding it difficult to find the right people for your business and help you achieve the growth consistently across all areas of the business

You will keep working hard, but you know you can’t keep on doing the same things and expect the business growth to just happen.

What you need to do right now

Have a step by step system which is not overwhelming but has clear actions that you can implement quickly and effectively to grow your business.

  • Analyse -Initially review where you are now and identify the appropriate steps that are relevant for your business
  • Strategy - Develop a clear strategy to know your key objectives, who you want to work with, the offering you are going to make to attract them and create your vision and goals. Have a concise plan and clarity that you can share with your people, customers and suppliers.

  • Financials - Know your finances, understand how the planned growth will impact your cashflow and know the real numbers that drive your business growth. 
  • People - Create a system for attracting, recruiting, managing, developing and retaining the best people to work in your business and help you deliver the success you desire.
  • Systems and Processes - Establish a business build with operational excellence, that gets things right first time every time. Use systems and automation to create efficiencies in both time and money.

Mentoring

A Mentor provides support, ideas and contributes to your business with experience, knowledge and expertise.   

Such external support is timely for a business wishing to grow.

From our experience many business owners certainly have the potential to grow their business, but due to one often simple reason they do not make it happen. This may be because the business owner/s did not have the knowledge or the varied and required skills to make it happen. Perhaps they did not have the time to deliver on the actions required, whilst also still running the business day to day.

We work with our clients to develop the skills and knowledge in the team to help you deliver actions that make it happen.   

During one of our workshops on the topic of Business Growth, we explore the barriers to growth for many business owners. These obstacles can be summarised as:

  • A lack of strategy
  • The economy and market conditions = demand
  • Lack of working capital / cash
  • Lack of preparation of what is expected 
  • Not finding the right, quality, people to build a team
  • No leadership & poor people management
  • Low engagement to commitment, ownership , responsibility & excellence
  • Poor communication with team, suppliers, partners,
  • Lack of ability of owners to let go
  • Knowledge to systemise processes
  • Change management & reaction to change
  • Raising finance
  • No marketing plan or sales strategy

Our mentoring support covers these areas and much more on a personalised basis to help you establish solutions to these obstacles and achieve the growth you desire.

Behavioural Assessments

You will heard it said many a time that it is critical to have a good team around you, whether your business is built with employees or associates. However from experience of working with many entrepreneurs, we suggest you consider individual attitudes and behaviours as much as the skills required for the role.

We offer online assessments that enable you to better understand the behavioural styles in your business, how they can work together and how situations may need to be managed.
