    Could use some ‘diagnostic’ assistance from ya’ll :)

    I need someone to help get my business to the next level..

    Initially I was thinking “I need a business coach”, but really – I don’t lack motivation/clarity and Im not feeling lost.

    I really just want someone to come and review my procedures, processes and finances – point out my flaws and tell me what I could be doing to improve things.

    Recommendations appreciated after diagnosis! ;)

    Hi Leah,

    If it assists, you can check out a growing your business checklist here (provided by the Government) – might help with some diagnosis and therefore what to do next?

    Coach is a very loose term used across a few disciplines. Perhaps an advisor or mentor – for systems and processes, there are specialists in this area and having a chat with a few might help. Are you clear on what the next level is? Perhaps it’s time to revue strategy?

    I just finished reading an article about the governments Enterprise Connect programme, which allows you to have a complete business review, paid for by the Govt. You can find the details here: http://www.enterpriseconnect.gov.au/Pages/Home.aspx

    This seems like a good solution for what you need.

    The Enterprise Connect Program is an excellent resource but typically works with businesses turning over more than $2 million in metro areas and over $1.5 million in regional areas.

    Hi Leah

    I have a service that might be of interest to you it’s a sales and marketing diagnostic questionnaire it basically has been developed to show business owners where they are leaking profit and identifies any hidden issues and how to get rid of them
    It covers six segments which are:

    • Business Owner Goals
    • Customer Profile/s
    • Sales, Profit & Marketing analysis
    • Business Performance Analysis
    • Final Questions
    • Fundamentals Sliding Scale

    Some of the things that you will find out in the program are:

    • An easy, no-cost strategy that will help you to get more from each day

    • Discover what you can do to stop wasting time with customers that argue over price, cause you loads of work and often don’t pay on time

    • A simple strategy that will show you how, by addressing a few areas of your business – you can send your profit through the roof!

    • The one critical area most businesses neglect and is needlessly costing them serious money without even realising

    • How to ensure that you’re getting ‘bang for your buck’ with your marketing that actually works

    • How by using the “fundamentals sliding scale” you can see exactly what’s not working in your business – you will love this

    If you would like to take up the Free service or get more information please contact me

    Regards,
    Danny Maletin

    Thankyou all for your advice and links. I do believe you’re right harry about turnover. Not quite there yet ;)

    Went to my local BEC this morning of all places and had a great chin-wag with a business management pro there.

    He let me know my problem is simply time management (apparently one of the best problems to have!) and gave me some ways of coping with it.

    Will keep you updated in the next few weeks :)

    BEC’s are also an excellent source of info (involved with a few with the WIB mentoring program).

    I’m guessing that time management being a good problem to have in this context is; more work than you have time to get out, which is one of the better problems to have.

    I’m also guessing you’ve been advised to outsource all non core activities so that you can concentrate on income producing ones you’re good at and enjoy?
