We set up the Business Planning Guys to support business owners to get the results their hard work and commitment deserve.
We have both worked in and led large teams and businesses that have secured great results and we aim to bring these techniques and strategies to ambitious business owners.
All business owners need a business plan at all stages of their business life cycle to:
1. Start. Launch a new business or new service
2. Fund. Raise finance or attract investors
3. Grow. Adapt to the changing demands and opportunities of a growing business and adapt to changing markets and competition. Plan for potential successors in a family business or new management recruits.
4. Exit. To maximise their return from selling their business.
Many business owners do not take the time out to review their business and their future as it seems like very hard work.
They often do not have a trusted adviser or expert who can work with them to simplify the process and create plans that are easy to update and take days rather than months to produce. We fill that gap!
WE CAN HELP YOU UNLOCK YOUR FUTURE
No matter what stage of business you are running, you will find the problems you face are common to many others growing a business. The same issues are holding a business back from achieving its full potential. These are questions you can ask yourself to help you move forward.
Business Planning Events
Do you stay in your comfort zone?
Are you held back by the unknown?
Are you frightened of growth, recruiting more people and financial responsibility?
How will you feel if you keep treading water and you are stuck in a rut?
How will you feel if you aren’t achieving your or your business potential?
What is the impact on you of not having your team in tune with you and your goals?
Would it be better to have a plan you can share with your team and be able to share the responsibility for achieving your goals?
Are you open to new ideas?
Can you do it on your own without support and guidance?
Could external support help you build an asset and the business you always wanted?
HAS YOUR BUSINESS PLATEAUED OR HAVE YOU HIT A GROWTH HURDLE?
Many people think that a business plan is only needed when you need to raise funds or investment. A new fresh look at your business from another perspective can be the key if your business has plateaued or hit a growth hurdle.
