Are you under pressure in your business?

Perhaps you're waking at 3am, worrying about all the things you need to do?

  • Feeling like you’re struggling with all this on your own.
  • You may be feeling stressed about irregular work or lack of cash flow.
  • You may be wondering how on earth you could ever take time off when you’re the one holding things together in the business.
  • You may feel embarrassed to admit that you don’t really understand your business finances (don’t worry you’re not the only one!)
  • You may wish you had more time and want to feel like you’re in control (rather than the business controlling you!)
  • You may have realised you’re less present in your family life because the pressure of the business consumes you.
  • You may not know where to start to be able to take your business to the next level.

But we know that:

  • You started a business because you love what you do, and wanted to take control of your own future.
  • You've already achieved more than most - only 37% of small businesses in NZ still exist more than 2 years after start-up.
  • These are normal business growing pains that so many other business owners experience too.
  • You have established a great business with so much potential for further growth.

Let's amplify your efforts if you are ready to have less stress, more time and money, and a business that excites you (rather than drags you down).
