I present to you BUSINESS STRATEGY SESSIONS™
What is it?
Business Strategy Sessions is a monthly group consulting/coaching sessions for only 10 serious minded entrepreneurs who rather than complain about their business challenges are determined to seek strategic insights to overcome them.
Rather, you will have access to identify your most pressing business challenge and tap into the collective experience of 10 other entrepreneurs including me; as we all diagnose, analyze and recommend practical, actionable ideas that you can immediately start applying in your business after each session.
This is a mastermind meeting as described by Napoleon Hill in his classic book; think and grow rich. The idea of a mastermind meeting is to form a support group of like-minded entrepreneurs who would gather at specific intervals to brainstorm and bounce ideas off one another in search of strategic insights to specific business challenges.
In other words, this is a strategic business clinic where you can come to solve your pressing business challenges without having to pay a huge sum of money to a consultant. It’s a place for answers to your unlimited business challenges. While it is NOT free, the amount you pay is nothing compared to what you would have individually paid to a consultant to help you tackle your business challenges.
The business strategy sessions offers the following benefits;
- To help you gain clarity on the crucial long term priorities/objectives to constantly pursue in order to keep your business from dying.
- To help you identify pressing business challenges that are hindering your business growth.
- To help you focus on really BUILDING a profitable business one strategic step at a time.
- To help you create an avenue where you can practically brainstorm the viability of an idea with other like-minded entrepreneurs.
- To help you formulate actionable plans to implement those ideas.
The randomness of DOING business as usual is hindering you from enjoying the sustainable growth of BUILDING a business that matters.
As an entrepreneur, you are often occupied in the day-to-day running of your business that you seldom find the time out to strategize. You are too busy ‘working in’ your business rather than ‘working on’ it. Working in your business is what it means to “DO” business, while working on your business is what it means to “BUILD” a business.
Being caught up in the day-to-day running of a business can often mean more harm than good. When you are too busy attending to the daily demands of your business such as; going to the office, completing client’s work, following up a sales lead, keeping track of finances, keeping inventory and a whole lot of other short term business activities; you are DOING business.
If this is all you ever do in your business, you are sitting on a time bomb. Being busy tackling daily routines will prevent you from focusing on the critical long term concerns of your business. And this is why many businesses are stuck in one place; because of their inability to strategically align the daily short term demands of running a business [DOING] with the critical long term objectives of growing a business [BUILDING].
Business growth is a function of identifying, pursuing and achieving critical long term objectives in your business. It is a strategic decision that requires taking calculated actions and NOT random actions. It requires a complete shift of paradigm from being a reactive entrepreneur to being a proactive one. It is about BUILDING and not just DOING business!
The secret to business success is not more activity but more productivity.
Most of the things that keeps you trapped working IN your business can be strategically minimized if only you can make out more time to work ON your business.
You are struggling in your business because you’ve become too preoccupied with “doing” business rather than “building” a business. You focus too much on short term wants that you completely forget about long term needs. You keep pursuing immediate results instead of building sustainable ones.
To grow your business, spend more time working ON it. The business strategy session is your monthly time out to work ON your business. And guess what? By attending, you’ve automatically enlisted the help of 10 other unusual entrepreneurs to also work ON your business with you!
After strategy comes execution. As an entrepreneur, in trying to build your business, it’s easily possible for you to stray from your set objectives from time to time. Especially, when there’s no one to hold you accountable to your goals/objectives. Remember all those goals you set at the beginning of the year? Well, where are they today?
This is why you need intelligent execution to help stay on track. Business success is not about more activities but about more productivity. The emphasis is on accomplishing set objectives and not about being busy. Without a structured accountability system to help you stay focused on achieving your set objectives/goals, falling into the activity trap is inevitable.
The business strategy sessions will help you identify key business objectives/goals monthly and help clarify the specific roles each play in building a successful business. These are the traditional homework you used to run away from in school. But now, you don’t have any choice; it’s either you want growth or you don’t.
The business strategy sessions is your accountability system that ensures you don’t stray from your set objectives/goals. It was designed to help you focus on the key challenges facing your business and work out practical, actionable ideas to solve them one after the other.
By attending, you’ve automatically chosen me to be your accountability partner who would always keep an eye on you throughout the month ensuring that you’re still on track towards achieving your desired business objectives/goals. This will take the form of regular accountability sessions during the month either via email, phone calls, sms, or online chats via Skype, blackberry, facebook, etc.
