The unfortunate reality is that most businesses in South Africa never grow beyond the self-employed stage. In fact, only about 20% grow beyond this point as is evident from the fact that less than 10% of all businesses employ ten or more staff. Those businesses that do grow will often plateau and they will reach a point of slow growth from which it's extremely difficult to escape.
A Business Coach I will help you and guide you along a clearly defined path of steady and sustained business growth. A businesses foundation is a strong indicator of it's future success and the right strong foundations will enable rapid growth that's sustainable and profitable. In business unlike a building, we can continue to work on strengthening its foundations at any stage.
Stephen Covey, in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People states clearly that effective people – "Start with the end in mind". A business needs a plan and structure to be a successful business and as your coach I will help you, clarify your goals for life and business from the start. You will be guided and challenged to ensure they really address your why and that they are truly important to you and that they help you achieve success.
Remember what Mark Twain said "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."
Thus this question: If the majority of business owners are driving sales through price and giving discounts, should you?
Your coach will help you identify ways to add value and to sell based on value. If you think you need to discount to win customers, chances are you've got a flawed strategy. After all, if your customers buy from you based on price – their loyalty is to price, not to you. You must differentiate on product or service and ideally both.
To grow profitably you'll benefit from your Business Coach's experience in multiple areas. You'll want to have a plan for building your team, growing your customer base, developing new products or services, and for systems and processes that grow just ahead of the business they support.
Your coach will keep you focused on your vital long and short-term plans despite the pressure exerted by the day to day business.
Your coach will help you and guide you in:
- Creating an up to 3 times industry average profitable business
- Generating real profit, not just revenue
- Creating a focused business growth strategy and scalability
- Sustained profit monthly and annual profits and not a rollercoaster ride of profit and loss
