In other words… We help our clients to spring clean their business and their personal life to regain control so that the business can work for them rather than they work IN or FOR their business." - Mike Smit

Although they are usually good at the technical work of their business (the owner of the car repair garage is great at servicing and repairing motor cars), they often don't have a good understanding of tracking and interpreting crucial management information. Or they may not appreciate the importance of visualizing , recording and tracking their goals. They may, as a result, make poor strategic decisions. Effective marketing campaigns may elude them, so that they spend unnecessary time and money on promotions that don't work. Oftentimes they are poor managers of others, so that the challenge of recruiting, training and retaining great employees drags the business (and the business owner) down. Perhaps they are adept at getting new clients, but keeping them is another story entirely.

Business ownership can be a lonely endeavor, and not having an objective sounding board leaves entrepreneurs alone to make decisions that shape the course of their entire future.

This is where coaching comes in. Mike will walk you through the process of establishing your personal and professional goals, and create a means for tracking your progress toward their attainment. You and Mike will work together to evaluate your strategies for managing, sales and marketing, and client fulfillment. Mike creates accountability, dedicated thinking time for problem solving, strategy and planning by being an objective sounding board most business owners lack.
