The Academy –
Designed For Service Providers
Are you tired of working all the hours you can to deliver services and never having time to focus on growing your business?
Are you ready to learn how to ensure your service business thrives?
Do you get stuck on the delivery of services at the expense of your wellbeing and income? You find yourself lurching from the feast of a project to famine as you are not marketing or bringing business in consistently? Running from too little time when you win a project to too much time on your hands when that project completes?
Are you tired?
Are you tired of being and doing it all?
We created The Academy to help business owners just like you who are brilliant at offering services and so dedicated to their clients they forget to look after themselves. Warning signs are gaps in cashflow, starting each month with a zero balance and having to search for sales, feeling exhausted, working longer and longer hours. Sound familiar?
The Academy is a mix of mentoring and training – we show you the steps needed to get your business on track so you can set up different buckets of income that do not all require you to be doing 1-2-1 work all the time.
Practical step by step not theory
We show you how to streamline your business so it performs for you. We hold you accountable on action agreed in our community and help you move from service provider and general dogsbody in your business to business owner and leader. Thriving not just surviving. Practical help not theory and both Steph and me (Sue) contribute to the group frequently, its an affordable way of getting hands-on help from us without working in a 1-2-1 program with either of us.
We have grown service businesses for over 28 years so know a thing or two
We don’t just talk about moving from working in your business to working on your business, we show you exactly how to do this and what needs to change and hold you accountable in making those changes. Stuff we have done for over 28 years in our own service businesses, not theory or academic learning, practical stuff that we have experienced personally and overcome.
Small Groups – we work in Action Pods so the group size is not unwieldy and you get access to the training both in and outside the group so you can view where and how you please. You can focus on group activity and switch to watch videos or watch just the videos in The Academy – your choice.
We focus on 4 core areas:
- You – what you want to achieve and your big overwhelming reason – your why
- The clients – who you want to work with and how to find them, what problems they have and how you will solve those whilst running a business that thrives
- Sales – how to create robust sales processes in your business that work for you and your clients, nothing yucky or spammy, just great chartered client journeys in line with your integrity that are set up to run all of the time
- The Business foundations – the model, the business offerings, pricing and positioning alongside where you intend to go and how you want your business to develop – we also include a library of legal docs which help you ensure your regulatory and compliance areas are also covered!
