It's not about me. It's about you!
A good sports coach knows that you only win if the athlete wins. If the athlete loses, so too does the coach. Clearly, we're not in the sporting arena. We're in the business arena but my values are the same. Your success is my success.
We’re in this for the long-term. A coaching relationship isn’t a short-term, “let’s fix it and move on” scenario. My fundamental belief is that business is there to serve you, not for you to serve it! So, the most important thing for us to be working on is how we get your business the way it needs to be to allow you to lead the life you really want.
You are likely to be running your business with one of two mindsets; a ‘cashflow’ business or a ‘capital value’ business. You might only ever want your business to be of a size that allows you to draw income from it to pay the bills and allow you to live your-day-today life. And that’s fine. Business coaching though, works with you to create a solid ‘cashflow’ business from which you can draw increasingly good income AND importantly to help you build ‘capital value’ in the business so that you maximise your sale value as and when you decide to sell the business. This afterall, is when the real rewards are reaped!
