The Only Way You Would Want To Start, Run & Grow Your Business
And Not Everybody Will Do It Right
Anybody can start a business. But not everybody will do it right. Statistics show:
- 8 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 5 years
- Only 1% of business owners are millionaires
The most successful entrepreneurs and business owners were not all born with the natural talents, resources, skills or luck to make their businesses fly. Neither were they the ones who graduated from College with the highest marks.
If we had a cent for every time we are asked “Is there somewhere I can go to learn about becoming an entrepreneur?”, we would be very rich today. The next most common question is “Can you give me the name of a good accountant” … No we can’t (as we do not want to be seen to be affiliated with any one accountant). But we can tell you what to look for when you’re looking for an accountant.
There is, unfortunately, no one place where you can find everything you need. All the information you need can be found on the internet. However, as an entrepreneur, you are going to be far too busy to spend time surfing the net to find the information you need or to read the 101 books you need to read. Information is therefore freely available. It is the implementation that requires experience.
When you break it all down, there are only 4 areas of business you must get right to succeed in business. I’m not saying that it’s easy to get it right but it can be done. Business Mastery is a learnable skill.
Any business owner has to wear 4 hats:
- Sales & Marketing
Learning the essential skills is a process of firstly, being aware of the need to know followed by an acknowledgement that it must be learnt. You must embrace an ongoing commitment to learning and have a growth mindset. The circle of AWARENESS. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, ACTION and ACCELERATED GROWTH is at a higher and higher level each time, compounding on your learning and building on firm foundations. Our business program is the result of over 40 years of training, learning and business experience. It is this experience that enables us to integrate rationality and intuition to give you a practical hands-on mentoring and coaching program that you can use in starting or running your business.
If you save yourself just 1 day of time-wasting research or just a 1-hour visit to your accountant because you were able to get the information you need from us, you would have paid for the subscription to our Business Club many times over. Work out the sums for yourself … A partner in a respected accounting practice charges anywhere from $350 to $600 an hour. A weekly meeting with a business coach will cost you anywhere from $200 to $3,000 per session (depending on who you go to and how experienced they are). The Business Club will cost you less than the price of a cup of coffee a day.
A word of caution – DO go and meet with your accountant for personal advice. Not everything can, and nor should it be done from an online platform. There are many subtle nuances that must be taken into account and it is impossible to do that in a one-off conversation where you provide a summary of the scenarios.
