Practical Support as Needed

Are you like so many small to medium business owners that started or bought a business because you have marketable skills or wanted to run your own show - what about running your business, what's your training or experience in this area and is that enough to safely navigate all the areas of business, or to produce the results you're looking for?

Ongoing feedback from thousands of independent businesses reveals that the greatest problems recognised by their Owners / Managing Directors are:

  • Cash flow
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Profitability
  • Funding
  • Staffing
  • Lack of time
  • Legislation
  • Loneliness
  • Loss of original vision for the business
  • Keeping up to date with information
  • Lack of exit strategy

Feedback also shows that Owners / Managing Directors of small to medium sized businesses generally have to:

  • know everything
  • keep up with everything, and
  • do nearly everything themselves

Importantly, it's not just the lack of knowledge or experience that can be a limiting factor, but also the available time to be effective in doing what needs to be done. More often than not, the need is for practical hands-on assistance.

From research gained from face to face meetings with Managing Directors / Owners of independent businesses, it is understood that there simply aren't enough hours in the day to focus on non-profitable activities. The day to day needs of the business must be taken care of, whilst the right solution is implemented and these are the goals of our Practical Business Support Program.
