Hitting the wall

It's time for change. You may be frustrated now, but there is a way forward.

It wasn't supposed to be like this. Surely a lifestyle business should deliver a good lifestyle for it's owner? But you have at least three roles in the firm and you don't get properly rewarded for any of them. The concept of hitting the wall, or the ceiling or whatever is a function of span of control. There's too much complexity and everything goes through you.

What's the plan?

You’re desperate to move forward and you’ve probably already identified some of the things that need to be done to build the foundations for future growth but where do you start and will it work?

Business Plan

If you’re serious about optimising your firm, you need to embrace the complexity of strategic business planning. We’ve worked on hundreds of these plans and developed a solution that leans into the detail, in order to clarify where you’re headed, where you are now and exactly what you need to do next.
