Business Advisory Programs
for impatient entrepreneurs who want to get there faster
Wouldn’t you just love to have some shortcuts?
You already know that building and running your business is hard. You don’t need more information – you need less confusion. Practical, tactical advice and tools that you can use to break through the barriers holding you back from building a great business.
You may be underpricing your products or services because you have trouble selling them – or you’re afraid of losing clients if you raise your prices. Or you’re having trouble putting together a website that really works. Or your messaging may not be attracting the clients you would really like to work with. Or you’re not even sure what your messaging should be.
You could certainly use a few shortcuts. Some know-how, a couple of recipes, some honest feedback and someone to make sure you don’t re-invent the wheel. Someone to hold you accountable and keep you from running after the shiny stuff.
I may be able to help.
Advisory services and programs that go as fast as you need them to
Your business is unique – and so is the combination of problems with the constraints, knowledge and tools you have to solve them. You need just the tools and advice to solve the problems you’re dealing with now; but enough of a big picture view to know where this is heading.
My advisory programs are based on the Tornado Method to provide context and years of experience to identify the stuff you need to focus on right now. My job is to make sure you’re working on the right stuff with the right tools; and sometimes that means having to work on you before you can work on your business.
But if you’re able to run faster I will advise faster – in fact, I will go as fast as you can keep up. The Tornado Method provides the context we need to identify your key problems; a portfolio of tools, guides and advice will help you get it done; and a little bit of tough love will keep you on track.
So what exactly do you do as an advisor?
I help business owners build reliable revenue streams so they can grow their businesses – and still have a life.
To do that, I get involved in everything from designing your business through to dealing with roadblocks and bottlenecks – whether they’re financial, operational or people-related. I will help with your building blocks (your business model, brand and product ladder); strategy development; writing business plans for financing or pitching to investors; designing and building a website that works; and your revenue engine (marketing, lead nurturing, sales, delivery and follow up).
And if you’re the bottleneck we will work on you so you can work on your business.
You’re not expert at everything, right?
Certainly not. A good accountant is worth his or her weight in gold and I will never give you legal advice (though I will point out stuff you will need a lawyer for). But I do know about designing, building and growing a business. And how to break through barriers and bottlenecks.
Who do you work with?
I work with solopreneurs and business owners. I specialise in service businesses (though I do work with retail businesses as well). And it doesn’t matter where you live – I run most of my programs in person or online.
My clients include software developers; interior designers; business coaches; sales development professionals; engineering firms; graphic designers and agencies; content marketing specialists; lead generation services; creative strategists; executive recruiters; a concrete company; strategy consultants; life coaches; a documentation services company and a wide-area carbon offset measurement startup.
Here’s what some of them have to say:
Choose your breakthrough
A free micro assessment and optional 1-hour session to analyse your most pressing problem, find your domino sequence and craft a plan to break through.
A 4-week program to design your business for maximum client attraction and revenue potential. The focus is on your Business Model, Brand and Product Ladder.
A 12-week intensive program to get your Revenue Engine delivering maximum revenue potential. The focus is on Marketing, Lead Nurturing, Sales and Follow Up.
Not sure where to start?
We always start with a Breakthrough Session.
The free micro assessment gives you immediate insight into where you can improve. It gives me the opportunity to learn about your business, help you solve a problem and determine where you should go next.
And the session is optional – so there’s no risk to you.
