The Small Business Project
Realise Your Business Potential
This 3 part intensive program covers the foundations, structure, strategy and skills required to take your accounting practice to a whole new level of success.
The Small Business Project focuses on moving an accountants role, from a functional one just crunching numbers and doing tax returns, to a vital one delivering powerful structured business advisory solutions which help clients to increase turnover, drive growth and become more efficient in an increasingly competitive business environment.
How do we do this? Change the conversations accountants have with clients.
Not only will we show you how to change the conversations, we’ll give you the structure, tools and support to make sure you implement it successfully. One of the most challenging aspects for accountants to consistently delivery advisory services is a lack of structure. Accountants simply don’t operate that way, we need structure. We say ‘we’ because we’re accountants too and this program has been developed focusing and what works for accountants not what accountants should be doing, something other programs fail to address.
This program is the starting point for you to do more of the work you love to do, offer services that are highly valued by your clients and choose those clients you want to work with. As an accountant you have the ability to change peoples lives we’re not using our skill, knowledge and expertise in a way that allows us to do that.
Business Growth Made Easy
Evolving your current business model from that of standard accounting practice to a powerful high-level accounting and business advisory service requires a change in client conversations, a reliance on different methodologies and an all-encompassing program to guide you through the transformation process. The Business Metamorphosis phase provides you with the necessary framework to grow your business from simply being functional to one that is vital via a new way of client interaction. Get ready to be hands on and interactive to hone your business mindset, building on your current skills and expanding your mental capacity, simply and easily. As an accountant you have the skill set needed to change people’s lives by having a direct impact on how they run their own businesses. Our reliance on being solution focused has stunted our ability to deliver powerful advisory services in a systematically and engaging way. By shifting your mindset away from ‘my value lies in the answers and solutions I provide’ we’ll show you how using coaching methodologies with your clients will have them knocking down your door for more advisory solutions. What greater thing than to help your clients navigate through the challenges they may face in their own businesses and you setting them on the right course for their success. The workshop covers the 3 stages of the Business Metamorphosis program, the 4 key concepts of the Business Metamorphosis model and walks you through every step in the powerful process.
