Welcome to the Business Growth Accelerator Program
This Program will provide you with all the knowledge, skills, and information you will need to Create and Implement your Customised Business Growth Strategy and Plan, with clear goals to achieve for your business and to fulfil your Personal Goals and Desires.
The program is unique in that your coach will not only work with you step by step to create your plan, they will continue to work with you and be there to support you during the implementation phase.
Whatever stage in the business lifecycle your company has reached, from a start-up, to a mature business, this program will provide great value and insights.
Take action, implement this program, ensure you are equipped and prepared to meet those challenges
Running your own business is not easy. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, more than 60 percent of small & medium sized businesses fail within the first three years of their start-up journey.
This doesn’t mean their product or service wasn’t good enough! More often than not, it simply means they didn’t fully understand the challenges that come with running their own business.
How Does The Program Work?
During your training meetings, your coach will go through all the content of each chapter with you, in one-on-one face-to-face meetings on Zoom or Skype.
Once you have been through the content, you and your coach will discuss the various alternatives and will make sure you understand exactly how they apply to your business. After the meeting both you and your coach will do relevant research and bring to the next meeting for final discussion and decision. Your coach will make sure you have considered and understood the main options available to you.
The program has 8 chapters which cover all aspects of starting and setting up your business, managing it effectively, building and growing it, creating and implementing your business plan, and preparing your exit strategy from your business.
It provides step by step in-depth guidelines and comprehensive explanations of the options you will have to consider.
Note: Covid-19 Impact. If your business is in the growth or mature phase and still experiencing the impact of Covid-19 you might prefer to limit your plan to the next 12 months as you will need to stay focussed on the immediate future at this stage.
If you believe that the Business Growth Accelerator Program might be right for you, you can book a Free 20 minute strategy call with me personally in my calender, so we can discuss whether working with me using the program would be the right option for you at this time.
You will receive an email confirmation and reminder prior to the meeting.
Your Business Plan is much more than a pitch for financing
Of course, it’s true that you do need a good plan if you intend to approach a lender for start-up capital or to fund your growth
Your business plan will provide a roadmap from which you will manage and operate your business and refer to for direction in times of doubt. It should clearly lay out the long-term milestones that are most important to the ongoing success of your business.
- Writing a business plan is also an opportunity to carefully think through every step of starting or growing your company so that you can prepare in advance for ongoing growth and success.
- You can use it to define & monitor your business goals, and to hold yourself & your team accountable for their achievement
- Through the process of brainstorming, and creative discussion, you will likely see your business in a different light. As a result, you will often have new insights & ideas for marketing your product and running your business
- Your business plan will lay-out targets for all the major functions in your business.
Once defined, the targets become measurable key performance goals and indicators. Your plan is also a sale and recruiting tool for courting key potential employees and to attract and retain high quality talent.
The time you spend making your business plan thorough and accurate and keeping it up to date, is an investment that will pay big dividends in the medium to long term.
We have provided a brief summary of the 8 chapters of the program below to give you an overview of what you will learn.
Chapters 1-7 will provide all the knowledge you will need to complete your business plan & Chapter 8 is your step-by-step guide to complete and implement your Plan.
Chapter one: How to Develop a Growth Mindset For Success In Your Business.
Creating and growing your own successful business is more about Mindset and Attitude than the Mechanics of actually doing it. In this Chapter, you will learn how to create a growth mindset for success in your business and in your life in general.
Chapter two: Asset Protection
Protecting your assets. The landscape of litigation and liability have changed dramatically over the past few years and people who never realised that they faced financial exposure are finding out that they do.
Chapter three: Product and Pricing Strategy – The two core elements of your business
In this chapter we explore your product strategy to attract your target audience, and the pricing strategy options to optimise your profitability.
1. Product Strategy
“Why am I in this business?” What is my purpose for being here? It’s not about you, and not about making money. It’s about what you can do for your customers. So, exactly who is your perfect customer ? Is there a market for your niche or new product & do you have “Proof of Concept”
2. Pricing Strategy to Maximise Profitability
For most companies, having an effective pricing strategy is undoubtedly the most beneficial way to increase profit . Learn the three broad strategies, commonly known as the” 3 C’s of pricing”, used to define the product pricing process. Who are your main competitors, their strengths & weaknesses?
Chapter four: People-Building and Retaining Your Team
Your people are your biggest asset. Ultimately you want to build a great team of smart people beneath you, and you want to equip them with the tools and the motivation they need to grow and succeed personally, whilst helping your business to succeed. Learn the one near-certain way to guarantee employee retention, enthusiasm and loyalty.
Chapter five: Funding Options for Your Growth Plan
If you are serious about growing your business–unless you are fortunate enough to have a substantial amount of cash or liquid assets available to fund your business, you’ll have to embrace funding. It’s either debt or equity. Learn the pro’s and con’s of each, and the new alternative ways to get equity funding.
Chapter six: Financial Management & Reporting
In the dynamic world we now live & do business in, things can change very quickly, & you need to be aware of what is happening & how it might impact your business. Thats why you need a good grasp of your business’s financials. The Monthly Executive Performance Report is the document that pulls together all the relevant information with balance and objectivity.
Chapter seven: Plan Your Exit Strategy
Why you should be thinking about and planning your exit-strategy from the moment you start? Having a date and business-value in mind will be a key consideration in building your business plan.
That does not necessarily mean that it will happen on that date. But it does give you a clear goal on which to base your business strategy & plan, and you know that if you follow that plan, you will be in a position to exit on that date, or later if you so choose.
Chapter eight: Growth: In this Chapter we explain the 7 Step Business Planning Process.
How will you grow your business, from a start-up to become an established and thriving business? A well-written business growth strategy and plan will be essential to help convince investors or lenders to finance your business, but it’s so much more!
In this chapter you will get a good understanding of what is involved, the type of questions you need to ask yourself and be able to answer with confidence.
Your success in attracting new customers will be in direct correlation with how well you can market and sell your product or service. Businesses with great marketing will outperform a brilliant strategy or product with poor marketing.
