Do you suffer from Arithmophobia?

End your fear of numbers – with one financial practical tool at a time! Do you want your business to succeed? 100% yes? Well, the reality is that avoiding your numbers is not an option!

Don’t let finance terminology get the better of you. If you’re in business to make money, you’re probably relying on either your emotions or your intellect.

How to master the numbers of any business?

Not only do you need to know your historic numbers but the ones that will create your future. Due to a lack of information, too many business owners have a limited ability to make decisions.

Together everyone achieves more

Your team members are the biggest asset in your company and when your team are as passionate about your company as you are there should be synergy in all areas. Isn’t that the ideal image of a successful company? Is it possible?

Understanding your team and making sure that your team understands each other and also understands the internal and external challenges in your company is the key to leverage. Your team is the glue that holds your company together.

How strong would you say your bond is?

Meeting or exceeding your sales and/or financial targets consistently is a great measurement!

Unfortunately, internal conflict, lack of communication, different working styles, and/or lack of direction or understanding of the company’s goals and personal goals are a few challenges that lead to frustration amongst employees within an organisation. In most companies, their employees often see themselves as being just the ‘Staff’ instead of being a ‘Team Member’ who plays an integral part in the company’s growth and success.

F.R.E.E.D.O.M – it’s a choice!

As a business owner, do you truly believe you could have or even deserve freedom? Do you know what real freedom actually tastes like?

As a business coach for more than a decade, I have more often than not, discovered when talking to a new client—a business owner—that somewhere deep inside them they believe there are no other choices other than long hours, stressful working environments, challenging financial situations, difficult teams to work with, and the growing list never ceases to surprise me. These wrong beliefs about what owning your own business are all about, is simply not true.

Let’s take some time out to understand what freedom really looks like and the various options. So before we break down the acronym F.R.E.E.D.O.M, let us first understand what the difference is between Freedom of Choice vs Freedom to Choose?
