Business Mentors Are Not All the Same – Here’s How they Differ
As one of the “pioneers” of the business mentor and coaching industry, starting in 1997 in Sydney, I’ve witnessed the industry change.
Unfortunately, there is no criteria for becoming a business mentor and because anyone can title themselves as one.
You are therefore wise to consider a business mentor with at least 20 years of business ownership experience as it takes a long time to understand “business” to advise on it with strategies that get results.
There are “4 big business challenges” to deal with if you’ve owned a business for over 3 years and have 3 or 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 mentors don’t solve these major challenges – that radically change your life as a business owner for the better to give you “business freedom.
Most instead focus re-actively on increasing sales or trying to get you to understand complex financial reports.
Every one of the “4 big challenges” can be conquered – permanently, working with an experienced, professional business mentor.
But there’s an even better option of giving you the information you need, than one on one mentoring.
Experience that Benefits Your Business
Here’s some examples of the types of businesses by industries that have enjoyed great results from mentoring….
- Tree service/aborist
- Blind manufacturers
- Carpet cleaning
- Software development
- Vehicle exhaust manufacturing
- Truck haulage
- Powder coating
- Financial planning
- Fly fishing training
- Wholesale timber fencing
- Motor mechanic
- Security service
- Truck spray painting
- Fiber optic cabling
- Traffic control
- Mortgage brokerage
- Direct sales
- Vehicle radiator sales, service and repairs
- Hydraulic service
Is your business industry on that list? Would your own industry of operation be that much different to some of these?

A Better Solution than Business Mentoring
What’s more important than achieving a great result for what you pay for?
The results that clients really wanted is what I’ve focused on for over two decades – improving business owners’ quality of life.
What if you could double or quadruple your business’ net profit in 6 to 12 months as clients have – without spending anything on increasing leads?
Would that interest you?
A higher Net Profit MARGIN is just about the best improvement outcome there is in any business because it increases the cash in the bank of a business, often by $100,000 to $500,000 or more with no risk as there is with advertising to increase leads and sales.
While working with business owners I kept finding that business owners needed and also benefited from education on 7 core subjects, 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
What was found to be the best way of educating business owners on all 7 topics was to provide it as training to a small group.
Instead of paying multiple thousands of dollars per month, for an hour or so a week, small group training is a superior way of obtaining beneficial information.
A small group environment, of 3 to 4 business owners only, means you share in the experiences of what you implement.
The best thing about training on the 7 topics is that small group training can be systemised for the group, while giving individual one on one mentoring.
So instead of you having to create dozens of strategies and systems, as you do with a typical business mentor, with our training dozens of strategies and systems are provided as ready-to-use. Plus each one is individually reviewed.
Our training saves you HUNDREDS of hours of creation, ‘working on your business’ time.
The Perfect Training Solution – Academy of Business Mastery
The training on all the 7 topics above, that conquers “The Big 4 Challenges in Business” is all contained in The Academy of Business Mastery.
Since 2007 this training course has been delivered to many hundreds of businesses.
How Do the Results of the Training Course Compare to Business Mentoring?
The training focuses on achieving these outcomes…
- Doubling the net profit of your business in 6 to 12 months, without doubling leads
- Putting a “structure” in place so your business grows fast, while you work less hours or days per week
- Solving all your staff issues – including finding good attitude ones, getting them to work unsupervised
- Leveraging your way out of the business, to work on it, or just take long, frequent holidays
- Preparing your business for a manager, with a full job description and recruitment system, to free you up
- Scaling your business, so it grows by hundreds of thousands to multiple millions per year, each year
The Academy of Business Mastery sets these types of goals, and frequently sees them achieved.
Best of all the Academy is far more affordable than business mentoring, and has no 12 month “lock-in contract” service delivery.
The training is an 8 month, half-day every fortnight program, delivered over 16 sessions, and you simply pay as you go.
The value of any training program should retain you interest, not a contract and that’s the case with the Academy of Business Mastery.
You’d be amazed at the depth and scope of the content, just as our 17 accounting firm partners are, who were often sceptical about it initially, but then recommended it after experiencing the content first hand.
What Matters Most with Your Choice
Experience in business is what gets results. There’s no substitute for it, however often experienced business owners aren’t very good mentors or trainers, so choose carefully who you work with.
From experience, the level of results you can achieve can often be determined. Results for some clients have been having the choice of not having to work every day and taking a couple of months off stress and worry free.
For others, its turning a loss making situation in their business around, so their business is profitably and growing again.
There are dozens of challenges in business that the Academy of Business Mastery addresses, and solves, not just at your current level of size but also when your business has millions more in revenue.
To find out more the best next step is to have a phone ‘chat’.
You’ve probably still a bit sceptical about it, but keep in mind results are what you want and this training solution provides the best and highest quantity of results spanning 21+ years you’ll probably find anywhere in Australia.

Don’t have concerns about any pressure on you to do anything.
That’s never going to be present. A lot of businesses are rejected to attend the Academy because they just weren’t ready or didn’t have the necessary mindset for it to work for them.
We both want to be certain the Academy is a good fit for your business, because results from it matter just as must for our reputation as much as they do for you.
