Inspiring your thoughts

     to run your business

like clockwork


Thank you for visiting the web site of the entrepreneurs mentor, Mike Foster.

"I work with B2B Business Owners, predominately professional service companies, who struggle to take their business to the next level. 

They would like to have a robust strategy in place which includes, understanding your financials, effective marketing, hiring the right people and implementing robust systems and processes to create a strong foundation from which to grow, with confidence, a solid and sustainable business.

My passion is helping other businesses to achieve the results they desire. What separates my service is that I offer a holistic approach supported by my extensive business experience. 

Together we look at every area of your business and establish what we need to focus on to make it work for you, your team and to the expectation of your ideal customer.

My CV demonstrates my experience with start-up and growing businesses and over the last decade I have started, grown, franchised and sold my own business. 

I have studied start-up and growth strategies for nearly 20 years and I know what works. It worked for me and for the businesses I have worked for. 

My clients receive proven step by step information to help them take their business to the next level. With my personal support they also receive peace of mind and the confidence to take action. 

Because of this, our clients make the step change, successfully grow their business and operate a business that works like clockwork to make them more money."

Who we help

Are you thinking of starting a business
Like Richard who had worked for the same employer for 6 years, but wanted a better work life balance and control. Richard is technically competent, but wants to be sure that it is the right decision and understand how to start a business effectively.

You have decided to start a business
Like Sally who's now made the big decision, but although can offer the product or service is unsure she has the skills for all areas of her business. She is nervous, wants to build confidence and ensure she has considered all matters, whilst understanding how to build a business and find her customers.

You have a business you want to grow
Like Nicky who has ran a business for a couple of years, but wants more clients and perhaps a team to help her. However she is not sure how to make this happen from where she is now.

Or like Graham who has an established business, a team of people, but wants to generate more new business leads.

Do any of these scenarios sound like you?

If so, then we can help you to start or grow your business. Please call us for a no obligation conversation. 

Start & Grow

  • Are you starting a business?

    You are thinking of starting or in the last 12 months have actually started your own business and want to ensure you have everything established to give you a strong foundation from which to grow in the future. Your skills are competent in most areas, but you may not have the skills and knowledge to cover strategy, marketing, finance, people and systems to ensure you maximise your opportunities. You want to do things right and avoid being another government statistic for business failures.

    You are passionate about your new business and have a great product or service, but need to ensure this converts into a positive cashflow for you. You want to get established and start focusing on attracting your ideal customers as soon as possible. You strive to have the business model that is profitable, sustainable and attractive, whilst offering an exceptional service that gives you repeat and referral business in the future. MORE

    Or do you want to grow your business?

    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. MORE
