My TrueNORTH use proven and tested methodology to significantly and sustainably grow you and your business from where you are right now, to where you want to be.
It doesn’t really matter how you first got into business, whether that was after quitting your job, being made redundant or inherited it from within the family. Or, if you took the brave steps straight from education and have always had the intent to step out on your own. I congratulate you one and all for the brave choice you have made, and salute you thus far.
But I’d briefly like to ask you:
- Is your business within the top 1% of businesses in the WORLD in your sector?
- Do you have a detailed Business plan on how to make it so?
- Do you already have an exit plan, knowing when, how much and to whom you will sell?
Unless you can answer a resounding “YES” to the above listed questions, then the following information is specifically for you…
The Four Steps
1. Solid Foundations
It’s almost too easy to start a business these days, yet form one without the right 8 point foundations, and I almost guarantee it will hit a ‘glass ceiling’.
“Growing broke” is just as big a problem as “Going broke” It’s vitally important to know the 7 essential numbers and how to ensure you are working inside of them as you begin to build a SCALE business.
Not only have I worked within within the management of the largest employer in the UK, I’ve also either bought, acquired or set up 4 of my own businesses. Scaled and exited twice, and spent more than 4 years heading up a team to research Big Business Failure.
2. What we don’t know
“We don’t know, what we don’t know”
Yet for too many business owners, not knowing WHAT, HOW or WHY is preventing them from significantly growing their business. We might have a plan, a goal and outcome we want to receive, but very few have ever taken a business from concept to exit successfully without many trials and tribulations along the way. Working with others can ease the painful mistakes and dramatically increase the opportunity to scale.
Education doesn’t stop when you leave school, and the importance of continual professional development can never be underestimated when you are aiming HIGH.
I’ve studied more since I left school than I ever did in it, and have a list of qualifications as long as your arm. But beyond this, I’m an implementer. There is nothing I’ve launched commercially, that I haven’t tried and tested within my own businesses. I walk the talk, continually spending tens of thousands of pounds every year in my own continued development, that others will subsequently benefit. This includes currently being a mentee of the worlds most successful life coach: Tony Robbins.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day”
But it was built by a group of determined and dedicated team. If you are serious about building a significant and sustainable business, then the best way to begin is by working in collaboration with a small team of other highly dedicated and determined business owners.
I pride myself in the relationships I have built along the way, and am eternally grateful for the people and businesses I can now turn to and regard as friend. They often say “It’s not what you know, but who you know in life” well if thats true, I’m extremely fortunate enough to have both!
4. 1:1 Support/Accountability
It doesn’t matter what the circumstance, it will always be bigger, better, bolder when you don’t face it alone! There is simply something different in the competence and confidence in which you approach life, when you have someone fighting your corner.
Whether it is the voice of inspiration, or the voice of reason, offering encouragement or simply bringing a plethora of other considerations and experience (gleaned from more than 2 decades and working with literally thousands of other businesses) a guide/mentor is often the most sought after, for those who want both the assurance and accountability when achieving the ultimate SUCCESS.
Throughout all of my business life, I can clearly see the occasions where I either didn’t have or didn’t listen to my mentors. It shows in my decision making, it shows in the results, it shows in the P&L and in my lifestyle. The fact is, unless someone is holding you to account, you are simply not fully playing the game – PERIOD.
So which of our opportunities works best for you?…
