Goals – Where Are You Heading?

Goals – Where are you heading?

It has been said that people who write their goals down, and read them every day, have a much higher success rate in achieving them.

I guess it is a little like reading a map.  If you are going the same place every day, who needs a map?  But if you are going further a field, beyond your current field of reference, to place you haven’t been before, you tend to watch the map pretty closely.  Ask anyone who is trying to navigate an unfamiliar major city.  The map is essential.

So in your business if you are going the same place this year as last year, you don’t need to refer to goals or plans – that is unless things suddenly go very wrong and to find you need a map to navigate the waters of bankruptcy.  Then you would follow plans in meticulous detail – to try and get out with as much as possible.

What is your plan for the next financial year?  Do you want to increase you turnover? Your profits? – by a little or a lot?  Or do you simply want to find a better balance between working horrendous hours in your business vs spending time with your family?   Whatever your goals, we can help!   Get in touch with  us at ActionCOACH North Brisbane to book your FREE mentoring meeting, where you and your coach will develop strategies for success.

Leverage – The Game of Business

Leverage – The Game of Business

Jason Playing Leverage

Leverage is critical for you as a business owner who is looking to find more time to do the things you want to be doing, instead of slaving for long hours and little or no return.   We can all agree that you need a combination of cash flow and systems to be able to build what we at ActionCOACH North Brisbane consider to be a successful business – A Commercial, Profitable Enterprise – That works Without You!

Yesterday saw ActionCOACH North Brisbane host yet another inspirational event in our “Inspire to Action” series, where business owners and alliance partners played the business board game Leverage.   Many lessons were learned by even the most seasoned business owners, and revelations were had by our alliance partners that this game alone could help their clients – #BFO

The photograph at the top of this article shows Kellie Phillips of Australian Elite Insurance Services and Jason Holmes of H2 Insurance collaborating whilst playing the game.   We love that there was a high level of “Co-opetition” – that healthy mix of cooperation and competition.

In the game, players move around the board making business decisions that increase the 5 ways they can increase their profits – Lead Generation; Conversion Rates; Number of Transactions; Average Dollar Sale; and Margins – to make incremental improvements in their business.   ActionCOACH North Brisbane has hundreds of strategies for you to implement that will improve your business’s bottom line.  One main revelation from our clients was that it is amazing to see how such simple strategies can improve your bottom line.   The other main part of the game, and not at all less critical, is the 4 main areas of systemisation that any business needs to be successful.   These are Delivery and Distribution; Testing and Measuring; Systems and Technology; and People and Education.
