Well, you’ve made it to here, so that’s a great first step!

Pain points (that’s what we Business Advisors call them) are common for most business owners. There are many reasons for these pain points, and the list below is not all of them, just the most common ones that I hear as a Business Advisors.

Cashflow / Finances

Any of these sound familiar? Where's the money gone? GST - time to find the money? Tax, we're not making any money!

Removing the stress of finances

I get it, I have been there before myself. I understand the pain of having to find money. My experiences can help you get over that and move the business forward.

Working Long Hours

I'm always at work, 60 - 80 hours is a normal week! I don't get paid as much as some of my team and they work 40 hours!

Reducing Working Hours

When there are many pain points and fires that need to be dealt with, owners are usually reactive and therefore tend to work longer hours to stop the business falling a part.

Work / Life Balance

You need to work longer hours and you have to work late as that is the only peaceful time and you can get work done.

Spend more time with your family

Because it doesn’t cost anything more for you to be at work, you stay for the quite time. You get to miss out of family time, long holidays, days off, and precious family time.

Human Resources

I don't feel I am getting the best productivity out of my team. I always have staff leaving, even the good ones, I can't keep them!

Improving Productivity & Culture

When morale is low, staff don’t stay around, even the good ones. Instilling a great culture, regular training and performance reviews is just a start.

That’s only a few that I can think of, right off the bat! If they ring true, or you have other pain points that you are going through, I am here to tell you I can help! Yes, there is a cost, but I know that I will find my fee within 3 months of working as Your Business Advisor.

That’s not being cocky, it’s a very valid statement, and I stand by it.

Business Mentoring

I work with business owners, having monthly (more frequent if required) reviews, continually plan, and review performance. In this capacity, I spend time advising and being a sounding board, rather than hands-on.

One-off Projects
(Casual)

A lot of business owners are too busy to plan, execute and oversee initiatives. I can be your right-hand man so to speak and implement your desired project. From setting up a new office to franchising your business.

Business Advisory Services | Project Consulting

Business Problem Solving (Casual)

I provide a non-emotional, outside perspective for your business.  Working in your business every day, the problem may not be something you can identify. I can identify the problem and move the business forward.
