Thinking strategically is a requirement to succeed!
As a small business owner you and your team must learn to think strategically and creatively if you’re going to stay competitive and become cash-rich.
In today’s entrepreneurial environment, you must build a business that is flexible and able to adapt to change on a daily basis.
If you’re at a place in your entrepreneurial career where you need strategic support in order to move forward, even if it’s a small step, then we’re here for you. Customized to your specific business initiatives.
It’s challenging building, and growing business ventures. We know first hand…we know how difficult, isolating and frustrating it can be without help from someone who can support a focused path to success. This is one of the many reasons why we offer strategic advising and mentoring services.
Advising is a little different than coaching in our eyes. With advising, you’re engaging in a quick yet direct discussion centered around immediate solutions.
For example, I have a client, let’s call her Anna. She has a general contracting business she’s been wanting to expand for the last year. We met at a networking event and starting talking about her business and she mentioned she was looking for a program or training to help her expand. The first thing I asked her was, “why are you expanding?” I won’t go into details here, but the gist of the conversation determined that she really hadn’t worked through her ideas of potential goals to justify expanding.
She basically was running her business like a hamster running on the play wheel. Running, running and running in circles with discombobulated strategies, plans and systems.
This is where our advising program come in handy. Anna needs quick and dirty solutions to help her map out the what, where, how, and why. She’s not ready for a full-on program–it would be too much and overwhelming at this point.
If you need direction, quick (provide) solutions, idea generation help, implementation steps, strategic development skills or any other support in the form of providing straight-to-the-point, kick-in-the-pants, direct-and-focused…solutions on the spot…then you’re in the right place.
Effició’s Advising program can help you:
- Determine the current state of your business (vision, structure, business model, marketing activities). What’s working, what’s not working, and what needs to be implemented. Your strategist will give you straight forward feedback that will give you direction on what things to do now and what things to do later step-by-step.
- Define what strategic planning is (for your business) and how it fits into the overall scope of your specific business needs and development. We’ll talk about the three areas all visionaries should focus on first.
- Discuss your (TOTAL) company’s positioning strategy which includes your brand, strategy and initiatives. We’ll determine if you need to position your company differently to get the attention of your buying target market.
- Recommend the most appropriate ways to set attainable financial goals – revenue, profit, no. of clients, sales, forecasting-we’ll cover a quick and easy process for setting and ultimately reaching your cash flow goals that you can implement now.
- Discuss the many options for systematizing your business. We’ll zero in on the most “cost effective” activities for your business. We’ll also discuss the areas where you shouldn’t waste your time.
- Review any relevant business materials and marketing campaigns you’re using now to recommend what you should keep, what you should change and what needs to be done from scratch.
- Share valuable business tools, resources, books, computer programs and/or techniques that can immediately help with your business development.
- Provide your custom Entrepreneurial Continuing Education Plan template detailing step-by-step how to get the skills you need and how to begin mapping out your training. This will include existing training you’ve completed and any future training planned with us and/or other resources.
and more! It’s all about what YOU need now and moving forward.
Effició’s Advising program helps you keep your business on the success track with a regular, consistent program covering only those topics you need. The cornerstone of the program is a monthly session – a time to work ‘on’ your business (not just ‘in’ your business).
