Everything You Wanted to Know about Growing Your Business
What size businesses do you work with?
The simple answer is all sizes and all types in…
The majority of our clients have come from service industries, especially trade and professional types of businesses.
With over 20 years experience, attending networking events, running our own seminars and using over a dozen forms of offline and online marketing, our clients have been attracted to us from all the above industry types. That’s probably because all businesses have quite similar challenges for the business and owner.
What Sort of Results Do Your Clients Achieve?
Our results with all five types of businesses have been spectacular, with case studies in each of these industries where clients’ businesses increased Net Profit by over 100% in a one to six months or so. Others have seen up to 3,000% increases in Net Profit in less than 6 months.
In regards to sizes of businesses and results, here are a few examples…
- A fly fishing school business doubled income from $800/week to $1,600/week within 2 weeks
- A wholesale timber fencing supply businesses added $60,000 in 4 weeks to their $80,000/month revenue business, within one month
- A bathroom renovation company went from $12,000/month turnover to $121,000/month turnover in 5 months
- A $3.6 Million turnover building industry company making a loss of $240,000 turned it around in two months to be making $360,000 net profit (this is a case study discussed in detail the Academy of Business Mastery)
- A $1.5 Million revenue company with an 8% Net Profit Margin grew to $10 Million with an 18% Net Profit Margin from one financial year to the next. Two years later that same business is operating internationally with a revenue of $35 Million with an 11% Net Profit Margin.
- A kitchen renovation company owner went from working 70 hours a week to zero hours per week, after systemising all aspects of the business to then hire a general manager to completely replace the business owner. The owner stopped working it completely until he sold it and moved interstate.
There are many, many more examples of spectacular growth with clients’ businesses, and you’re welcome to ask questions and discuss them in details in a consultation.
Are All Your Courses and Workshops for All Businesses?
The size of the business influences our recommendation for our three courses. For example, single operator business owners are not suited to (or eligible) for the Academy of Business Mastery course, due to it being so practical. With no employees there are so many aspects of the course that can’t be applied, so it’s just better for these ‘solopreneurs’ to wait until they have two or more employees to attend the Academy.
If you’ve been in business a few years or even decades, you’d know there’s more to growing and managing your business than just marketing and carrying out the work from the sale. These areas are where the Academy goes deep into all aspects of growing a business in a practical way where experiences of implementing systems, strategies and templates from the course are discussed in the course.
Our Solopreneur Business Growth Mastery Course is perfect for single operator businesses, as is our Double Your Profits digital training course.
All the half and full day workshops are excellent for all sizes of businesses from start up to tens of millions in revenue.
What ‘Ready to Use’ Systems Do You Have in the Academy of Business Mastery
The Academy includes all these ‘ready to use’ systems…
- A recruitment system – to attract and identify good attitude employees
- A team meeting system – to motivate and hold accountable your employees for far more time saving for you and higher productivity
- A complete suite of measuring, management reporting and analysis tools – to find the hidden profit opportunities all businesses have
- A business growth planning tool
- A profit sharing tool and system
- A full recruitment system to hire a general or operations manager, including the job description and KPIs
Our systems are highly refined thanks to the hundreds of business owners feedback and input from using them. They are finished, yet still being improved (as all systems need to be).
To create all these essential systems would take hundreds of hours of your time, which is a very high cost to your business with your own time. Best of all you will be able to discuss all systems you are using in our fortnightly reviews.
Is the Academy of Business Mastery Business Coaching?
No its quite different and a proven, better method of getting results with growing a business, and far more affordable.
Tim Stokes was conducting business coaching for ten years, prior to building the Academy in 2006 to 2007. He was doubtful of achieving better results by training business owners in small groups, however the results seen have been far superior as an average, plus clients keep on improving their business success year after year long after the course was completed.
This is the major difference and benefit of small group training versus business coaching. Typically the business coach wants to keep coaching the client indefinitely whereas the aim of the Academy is to empower business owners with quality information, permanent mindset improvements and essential business skills.
The Academy of Business Mastery contains 10 workbooks and over 50 digital systems including management reporting tools refined over 15 years. You won’t get all these in any business coaching program. Clients often report back to say they are still reading the workbooks and gaining value from them years later and are using the management reporting tools to keep increasing profit margins.
There’s no wasted time in the Academy, which is why results can come so much faster – during the course without time-wasting lengthy discussions. The course content is about implementing solutions and discussing the results to improve again.
Will Our Course Systems be Relevant and Work for Your Business?
That’s one of our most asked questions and the answer is absolutely! Just look at the incredible results we achieve with our clients across all kinds of industries in service, manufacturing, retail and wholesale and you’ll see that our results and content works with any type of business.
What Countries Are You Servicing?
All English speaking countries in the world that have an internet connection as all our courses are delivered online internationally.
Is Your 8 Month Academy of Business Mastery Expensive?
There’s no real comparison of training or business education like it in the market place, so it’s not easily compared, but if you compared it to business coaching its far more affordable.
Considering the $10,000 in value (stated by accountants) worth of management reporting tools in the Academy, the ten workbooks and individualised (one-on-one) training you also receive during the course (where needed) its far better VALUE than any other type of training you’ll find in the market place.
Do You Guarantee Results?
The short answer is no – simple because we’re not using or applying the content and the proven strategies in your business, you would be. Unless you guarantee you will use all the content supplied and strategies, it’s impossible for us guarantee a result.
The client results achieved for over 20 years demonstrate the quality of the content as can also be seen in client video testimonials. Plus video testimonials from accounting firm owners, with real names and businesses you can find online also prove the quality of our content.
Accountants almost never recommend any training or coaching programs, let alone go on video to do so!
Without having a chat about your business, challenges and goals while answering all your questions it may be hard to gauge the integrity of a training company, so its best if you book in for a chat with a trainer as a next step. You’ve certainly got nothing to lose, but the gain and change in your life and business for the better could be spectacular once you’ve comfortable to begin.
