Focus your energy on what is important
Running a business is a juggling act, and whether you are a new or established business owner, you might be juggling the wrong things!
Many business owners do what they think is best, and some avoid things they don’t like or are not comfortable doing. Does this sound familiar?
Our podcast episodes, blogs and resources cover the Critical Business Functions and how they need to work harmoniously for your business to survive and thrive. We call them critical because if they don’t get done your business will not thrive.
Understanding your Critical Business Functions means you can plan your time and not miss vital things that can harm your results.
How to run your business so it grows
Managing a business requires a mix of business acumen to recognize and make the best of your business opportunity in the long term as well as managing all the daily tasks.
As a small business owner-manager you need to be across many things to run a business at its best.
Often business owners struggle because they have not had management experience and they haven’t got the time or energy to learn.
We craft our content specifically for running a small business to give you the knowledge to be a confident manager. Our content is specific and covers the essentials so you can boost your confidence quickly as you need.
Our resources, blogs and podcast episodes give you practical guidance to run your business on topics such as:
- Do I really need a strategy for my business?

- What does innovation mean in managing a small business?

Why is my business struggling?
Many businesses are doomed to struggle because their foundations are fundamentally weak.
Some businesses will never meet the owner’s aspirations and need, no matter how hard the owner works.
Often, this is because people start businesses with a lack of business knowledge and do not properly evaluate or design the business.
If your business relies on competing only on price, you may have a problem.
Running your business smoothly and effectively is crucial, but it is only one part of the success equation.
Do I need a business reset?
A common issue in running a business is nailing the right value proposition, strategy, and business model for your business to thrive. If you haven’t nailed these, you might be in trouble, no matter how well you manage your critical business functions.
Our blogs and podcast episodes can help you re-evaluate and revamp your business to make sure you are heading in the right direction.
