Business Coaches and Mentors Are Not the Same – Here’s How they Differ
As one of the “pioneers” of the business coaching and mentoring industry, starting in 1997 in Sydney, the industry changes have been radical.
Unfortunately, there still is no “criteria” for becoming a business coach and mentor, and anyone can call themselves one.
You are therefore wise to consider a business coach and mentor with at least 20 years of business ownership experience as it takes that long to start to understand “business” to advise on it with strategies that get results fast.
With the right business coach and mentor who doesn’t guess what works for your business, you’ll see significant, measurable, financial results in weeks or months.
Having been in the industry for over 22 years, unfortunately most stories about business coaches are about poor value or ROI for what hardworking business owners receive.
Most accountants dislike business coaches with a passion and rarely recommend one. (See the list of accounting firm owners who do recommend our services).
A great business coach and mentor understands how to take you from where you are now with your business, to where you want to be and even to give you “business freedom.”
“Business freedom” means you are stress and worry free about your business. You don’t think about at home, at night and on weekends. You enjoy your life and you can holiday whenever you like.
There are “4 big business challenges” that all business owners have to deal with as their business grows to 3 and more employees…
- Cash flow
- Lack of time to work on your business
- Employees – finding good ones, getting them to work without your supervision
- How to grow your business with effective strategies, to achieve your goals
Most business coaches and mentors don’t solve these big challenges as they don’t focus on big outcomes that radically improve both your business and also quality of life with ‘business freedom’.
Most instead focus re-actively on increasing sales, or business mentors on complex financial reports that make a difference very slowly.
Every one of the “4 big challenges” can be conquered – permanently, working with an experienced, professional business coach and mentor.
Lack of consistent leads can be gone forever.
So can challenges with employees, or lack of cash in the bank.
You name it, we’ve experienced it, and have permanent solutions to the challenges you’re dealing with now, or will in future.

A Better Solution than Business Coaching and Mentoring
Results that show up with cash in the bank and on your P & L Statement are what our focus has been on, for over 20 years.
Results that not only improve your business financially with loads more cash in the bank, but emotionally so that your state of mind and relationship to your business changes for the better too.
In 2002 one client said to us “I don’t want to work in my business at all, can you help me to achieve that?”
It was a great challenge and during our work together it identified 7 topics of business growth that are essential to set a business up for management, to hire a manager so the owner didn’t need to work in their business at all any more.
That goal was achieved in 12 months, with a general hired and the owner no longer worked in his business at all.
That may not be your goal, but you may appreciate all the challenges that had to be solved during the growth of the business because the business owner wanted to be completely worry free when he stepped out, with a weekly management reporting system in place.
Since 2002 that process has been refined extensively so that any challenge you are dealing with now in your business can be conquered.
What if you could double your business’ net profit in 6 to 12 months as so many of our clients have – without spending anything on increasing leads?
Or if you could see $50,000 more cash in the bank, or give yourself a $30,000 pay rise?
To achieve any or all of these goals there are 7 core subjects to learn to achieve “business freedom“ – which are…
- Vision building
- Team building and effective recruitment
- Measuring all aspects of the business
- Planning to double the net profit, without doubling leads or sales
- Systems for profit growth
- Sales and marketing strategies, to sell more at higher prices
- Management of the business, to free up the owners time as the business grows
You may want assistance with one or two of these and that’s fine with us. You can ask for as little or as much assistance as you’d like because we’re completely flexible with how our training is delivered.
Just want more leads?
That’s fine with us.
Want a total business transformation, where working is optional, that’s fine too.
The choice is yours as to how many outcomes and benefits you want.
No ‘Lock-in’ Contractors
Our services are very different to what’s in the market place.
Typically, coaches and mentors want you to commit to a 6 to 12 month program. That way if what they try with you doesn’t work, they hopefully can figure out something that does in the time frame.
Our service is quite different.
You are trained, not coached. You’re shown exactly what to implement, given templates, video instructions and/or systems to use to save you dozens and even 100+ hours of implementation time, and then when you’ve implemented the content, its time to review it with you.
That way you can fit it into your own busy schedule.
If you’re looking for a business and lifestyle transformation, then our longer term, small group training is ideal.
In a small group, you’ll be learning all 7 of the above topics that are needed to conquer all the challenges, growth limitations and causes of stress, that all business owners benefit from learning.
That’s why the training is delivered to a small group as in 3 business owners.
Through 11 years of training business owners in groups, its been proven to be the most effective and fastest way to grow a business.
Even though its a group, you also receive all the support one on one you need.
What makes it so special is, you learn from other business owners, who are implementing the same strategies and systems as you are. Plus, the investment is much lower than one on one business coaching from a very experienced coach.
This leverages your learning time.
You have choices with our training, that you typically don’t get with business coaching and mentoring.
Our aim is to be the most flexible and accommodating with our services so its easy on you, our potential client.
