Understand your numbers. Work to a plan. Grow your business.
Let’s hear your story...
This is an opportunity for you to meet with us and discuss where your business has been, where things are at now and what the ideal business would look like for you in the future. During this initial catch up we will aim to:
Discuss your most pressing business issues and current finances
Identify your top 3-4 biggest challenges and/or opportunities
Provide feedback on how we would work with you to address these
Let’s start working on your business...
Once we start working together we then explore the ‘Now – Where – How’ concept in more detail to develop an overall Business Plan that is focussed, achievable and relevant to where your business is at now. With you, we will review the following 6 key areas of your business;
Profit & Finances – your business’ current financial position; providing a financial analysis that is meaningful to you
Operations – the systems and procedures that are in place; identify waste and explore opportunities for automation
Products & services – what products/services are sold at what price and what is your competitive advantage
Marketing – vision, branding, media; in order to increase sales
People - managing the team (and yourself) so you get the best results
Customers – retaining good customers and accelerating referrals
We do this by;
Gathering information from you regarding your current financial status
Meeting with senior stakeholders and a possible onsite visit
Identifying where your business is at now in relation to the key areas
Gaining clarity on where you would like your business to be in 12 months’ time
Pin pointing 2-3 areas for growth and development (Pareto Principle)
Determining your sustainable competitive advantage
Developing and then prioritising top strategies (SWOT analysis)
Transforming strategies into action using various problem solving tools
Pulling all information together into a One Page Plan with accountability for each of the key actions
To ensure you keep momentum, we embed accountability into your plan, meet with you regularly to check in on your progress, address new issues that arise and provide a new focus at the end of each quarter. We combine this 1:1 contact with access to online resources and coaching, and quarterly workshops on hot topics with other like-minded business owners.
Let’s create wealth and use it wisely...
Once you have a clear plan in place, strategies that you are executing with success and clear growth and profit outcomes, you are able to think beyond the business itself. A successful business means;
More time for yourself, your family and the longevity of your business
Wealth creation and investment for the future; looking at what your current and future life goals are and planning how to financially enable them
Exploring other business ventures and/or expanding the current one
Succession planning; including selling your business, merging with another business, passing on to the next generation and/or planning your own exit
Why would you need us?
Being a business owner can be extremely rewarding, and great in terms of flexibility, doing something you enjoy and using your skills. You may however be faced with a whole set of new challenges for which you find you have far less experience managing and be asked to make decisions on things you wouldn’t mind a bit more information and assistance. Flying by the seat of your pants is exciting but not always sustainable or profitable!
Some common issues we have helped business owners with are;
Increasing profitability by reducing waste and implementing more effective systems and software
Improving cash flow and reducing debtor days
Increasing sales through the development of a clear marketing plan
Exploring growth opportunities within and outside the business
Starting up a new business
Learning new skills around running a business; prioritising, decision making, leadership management
Staff retention, engagement and culture
Creating a vision and plan for the ongoing direction and success of the business
Asset protection and wealth investment
Why are we different?
We facilitate rather than consult, working with you and your team hands on. A focus on the root cause of issues rather than symptoms; often what is seen on the surface can be a result of something unseen.
Ongoing access to and use of multi-media learning; 1:1 interaction, online tailored courses and material, workshops.
Don’t pay us for the plan; pay us to help you implement your plan; 90 Day Plan to drive 3 key strategies with monthly/quarterly review to promote focus, accountability and ongoing improvement.
We offer an evaluation of your ‘change readiness’ prior to the implementation of your plan; where most plans fail (70%) is in the implementation of change, we work with you to increase your chance of success.
Skill and share; we educate you on the tools we use so you can problem solve issues and accelerate change yourself.
Access to accounting services and taxation advice embedded in all service packages.
