Keeping you accountable

As a business owner, you’ll be balancing many competing priorities. We’ll keep you accountable and focused on your strategic goals.

Identify opportunities to maximise profit and business value

We’ll work with you to identify the top opportunities to grow the profitability and value of your business.

Avoid the perils of growing too fast

A high-growth business can be in dangerous territory, especially if they don’t have available cash flow to fund their growth. It helps to have someone looking ahead to your future needs.

Growth through acquisition

Make sure you go into an acquisition with your eyes wide open, knowing exactly what you’ve purchased and that you’ve paid the right price.

Financial health assessment and scorecard

A financial health assessment will help you to understand how your business is performing in key areas including profitability, liquidity, working capital, asset usage, efficiency, cash management, gearing and profitability. It will help you to:

  • Determine your business value
  • Uncover potential red flags to sustainable business growth
  • Develop strategies to improve performance and business growth

As a business owner you will be pulled in many different directions and to many different priorities. Working with an MGI business coach will help:

  • Keep you focused on working on your business not in it
  • Provide a professional to bounce ideas off and provide insights

Strategic planning

Ninety per cent of businesses with a growth rate of less than 5% have no documented and communicated strategic plan (MGI My Catalyst).

Clearly a failure to document a plan is holding businesses back from achieving their growth potential. Some of the biggest hesitations we hear are we don’t have time for a strategic plan, our business environment is changing too fast, and most business plans just sit in a draw anyhow. But if you don’t have a plan how do you know what route will get you to where you want to be. Our strategic planning sessions will:

  • Identify where your business is now, where it wants to be and the best route to get there
  • Guide your executive team to identify strategic priorities and growth opportunities
  • Develop a one page plan that identifies key actions and accountability

Exploring funding options for business growth

Support with business growth funding

There is often more than one way to fund business growth. We support you to achieve your funding goals by:

  • Reviewing all funding opportunities and perusing the best options for your business
  • Developing your funding pitch
  • Liaising with banks and other investors to support your funding application

Many businesses go straight to the bank to fund their next growth opportunity. Often however, there is a better opportunity that gets overlooked. Speak to our team today about how to fund your next growth project.

Acquisition advice

Acquisition can be a successful growth strategy but if you don’t do your homework it can also create more headaches than it’s worth. Set yourself up for success. Speak to our team to make sure you understand:

  • The true value of the business you are acquiring
  • Any underlying risks or concerns
  • Strategies to incentivize all parties to invest in a successful acquisition.

I found Grant’s approach very different to what I had encountered before. He was approachable but tenacious. He worked with me to break down what my weaknesses were and then he wouldn’t let me let it go. It was challenging but effective

How can I prioritise more time working on my business?

The challenge for every business owner is to spend more time working on their business and less time working in it. As a business owner you need to constantly be asking yourself: am I providing unique value? Focus your attention on those activities where you are and look to divest other activities to members of your team. An MGI business coach will help you review how you focus your attention and what projects to prioritise to sustainably grow your business.
