SUPPORTING THE SCALE UP and GROWTH OF YOUR BUSINESS
Could you benefit from a Virtual, Part Time, Interim, Non-Exec, MD or Chair?
My background includes strategy, marketing & sales, finance, operations, health & safety and people management.
As an owner manager, you are passionate about your work and you have established a customer base of loyal customers who love your product or service.
You are ready to develop and 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 likely to have a completely full schedule. 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.
You know you need some senior leadership support to help you run the business, whilst you scale up and grow, but the business is not ready for a full time role at this time.
What I believe your issues are likely to be
You want to grow, but have no time to establish a plan or implement a strategy with clear action steps that you are confident will deliver the growth you desire to maximise your opportunities.
Perhaps you are the bottleneck in the business because nothing gets done without you doing it or approving it.
You are often making decisions alone without someone to bounce off your ideas.
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. You want to ensure the investment in your growth 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 want to better understand the real numbers in your business, that drive the growth and make those numbers work for your future success
You are finding it difficult to find the right people for your business and help you achieve the growth consistently across all areas of the business or lack the time to effectively manage them.
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.
Do any of these sound familiar? If so, then I can help.
What you need to do right now
From my experience, you need to 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.
Make a plan: What is your 5 year plan? What does that look like for 3 years? Where do you want to be this time next year? What needs to happen in the next 90 days?
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.
Win more customers - Build on your existing activities and develop an effective marketing strategy to establish how you are going to proactively attract more of your ideal customers and generate a bigger income.
Foundation - Build a base from which the growth can be effectively managed. Build a foundation across all areas of the business that supports the growth plan and not an approach of grow sales now, worry about the rest later.
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.
Are you like many of my clients, past and present, who have been running their own business and now have the desire to grow the business and create greater freedom for themselves?
Do you not have the time to make it happen or do you need the support and expertise in your business to help you grow?
