We don't become business owning experts as soon as we start a business. There's so much to learn and no prior, employee role can give us all the knowledge to build and own an awesome business.
Some owners get lucky and build an awesome business, for others, there's business mentoring where decades of experience is what can turn an average business into an awesome one, inside 12 months.
Cash flow concerns are completely gone. Cash levels keep increasing and you pay yourself a high salary and are building wealth.
Time is your friend. You have plenty of choices of what to do with your time. Your business works without needing your time.
You love your business, your team, the customers you deal with and the quality of life and freedom it gives you in your life.
TRUTH ABOUT BUSINESS
These skills can be learned slowly, sometimes painfully, over the years or in months with a business mentor who understands the path to success.
"I first met Tim between businesses. He helped me to buy a kitchen renovation business and then built it and systemised it ready for a manager, who he also helped me to hire. I then travelled the world with my wife for 2 months and didn't go back to work. I sold it two years later, for 10 times what I initially paid for it, as a business under management, ready to franchise."

"When I met Tim my business I had been in business for over 15 years and was working 55 hours per week. Two years later I can and have gone on holidays to Indonesia to go surfing for two months, without contact with my business.
I work when I want and my team work without my supervision. Life is great!"
Whitelight Electrical - Sunshine Coast
"I was working 80 hours a week, every week when I met Tim.
10 months later my business had grown over 200%, I had a great team, systems in place, KPIs and weekly management reports. My business operated smoothly and profitably - without me, and we then travelled around Australia in a motor-home for 2 years. It was fantastic."
Electrician - Townsville
