One issue with running a business is that frankly no-one but you really cares whether you succeed or fail. Business owners don't have a 'boss' and so, the truth is that most of us prioritise supporting our clients - or the team - over working on our own businesses.
A laudable attitude in some ways - but not one that's going to grow your business unfortunately. If your business really is going to have a successful and exciting future you MUST spend time working ON your business and focusing on your strategy.
Which is why having a business growth mentor can make all the difference.
And, in particular, this is the difference I can make for you ...
- A focus on planning - I'm a BIG picture person and it really helps to understand how the whole business growth machine fits together, so that we can identify gaps and opportunities.
- Ideas and creative input - I have a lot of experience about what works and what doesn't in marketing and I can help you get things moving quicker.
- Experience - I've run my own business for 27 years now and I've been there, seen it and done it - not only with my own challenges but in helping hundreds of business owners with theirs.
- Problem solving - someone to share challenges with and we can work on the issues together.
- Directness - I don't mess around and will tell you how I see it. We'll have some fun on the journey but you can expect me to be VERY straight with you.
- Accountability - having someone to whom you are committed to achieving your goals and commitments. Your boss, if you like; or your CEO. However, our continuing relationship is dependent on you doing what you say you will do - we won't be messing around with excuses! - I'm known as 'The Butt Kicker' for a very good reason.
And there's a low risk to us starting to work together ...
- There are no contracts or tie ins
- I guarantee to deliver value - or I'll give you your money back - the relationship only works for both of us if I can deliver value
- However, our continuing relationship is dependent on you doing the things we agree you need to do
