MasterKey Lifestyle Driven Business Coaching
My Business Coaching package is designed to help a business reach its sweet-spot. This is the juncture at which a business reaches critical mass, maintains its flexibility and has the cash flow to support its continued development whilst giving the owner the lifestyle they dream of. Many of my clients started a business because they had a dream of owning and running a small business, not a corporation. I don’t start with the premise that every business owner wants growth, because I know that some people would rather work three days a week and have more time for their family or other activities. Finding the right balance between running your business, engaging with your family and strengthening your primary relationship is the key to making everything work.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Have I got a small business that I would like to be more profitable?
- Do I work too many hours for the amount I take home? (or, my employees make more than me!)
- Do I have a problem attracting good staff or motivating or keeping them?
- Do I need to have more frequent holidays?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you should give my unique MasterKey business coaching, mentoring and performance management program a closer look.
The Seven Steps We Will Take Together:
- Discover what drives you and understand your personal limitations.
- Clearly define your work/life goals and begin to put strategies in place to make them happen.
- Set up a growth proof business structure and learn how to ‘get things done.’
- Develop a ‘Business Bible’ guaranteed to increase the value of your business.
- Discover how to invest in the right staff and motivate effective teams.
- Harness the tools available and implement communication strategies that actually work.
- Step by step implementation.
I developed this unique one-on-one coaching program specifically to help small business owners unlock the potential of their business and set up the lifestyle most of us dream of. A great way to discover exactly how this can benefit you would be to consider my trial coaching session.
