Startup Companies

When you are thinking of starting a new business idea, or a new project the world is fun, exciting and very, very busy.

One of the mistakes that people make is to get started before they are really ready.  They don’t have their plan worked out to minimise their risks, they don’t know how to sell and they don’t have a true idea of what systems and procedure they will need to make things work.

We have put together a set of simple and relatively inexpensive tools and offers which Start-ups can choose to use to help them get off to a great start.

Planning will give visibility of what is needed.

Selling skills will help with getting the order.

Mentoring will help with ironing out the bugs in the business as they arise.

Mentoring – Getting Started (Feasibility Study, Research and Planning)

Selling anything to anyone at any price is a well-known method for business.  Unfortunately, it does not work too well in the longer term.

Being clear about who your target customer is, what they want, need and value, will allow you to be much more focused on the things that matter to them.

Just like a laser versus a light bulb, marketing focus will allow you to spend less energy on far more certain and decisive results. That’s what working out your feasibility, doing your research and marketing planning is about.

Mentoring – Selling (B2B Selling skills)

Knowing how to sell is essential in business.  Even if we are not in sales, we still need to be able to sell our ideas to peers, bosses and others around us.

B2B selling is all about understanding who your real customer is, finding out what they want, need and can afford, and then helping them to make an informed decision which is best for them.

Look at our Money Tree workshop on B2B selling for more.

Mentoring – Staying on track (Group mentoring support)

Starting and growing a business is a huge task.  It requires much effort and focus.  Usually what happens, we start and then find that there are things which are needed, but we do not know how to do.  So, we have to either learn that thing ourselves (which saves money, but takes longer), or we find someone who can help us (which is quicker, but costs money).

The Group mentoring is aimed at supporting the self-help route.  Learn what is needed, what other people in similar positions do, and therefore what you might do yourself.

Look at our Group Mentoring for SMEs Program for more.

“I just wanted to let you know, that it was with great hesitation that I started the Strategic Planning Process. I’ve been through this many times before, I’ve read all the books, I’ve been to all the seminars.

But I just want to let you know that Steve didn’t disappoint.

He is the real deal.

He took us on a very structured journey, he brought everyone along, he was very patient with us because we were just learning how to ride with training wheels.

I am happy to announce that we have the training wheels off.

We are now running with your strategic plan for the next two-and-a-bit years, and it’s actually allowed me to appoint someone to run the business day to day as CEO, which I never would have had the confidence to do before.

And it’s given me my life back.

So, I’ll let you know how things have gone in the next two years, but I just wanted to say Steve’s the man if you need that process and structure around your business to get your life back.

Thanks Steve.”
