Support for small businesses and start-ups

If you are a solopreneur or running your own very small business, it can be a lonely road. Success or failure sits on your shoulders. You alone make the choices and determine the direction to take. But how do you know if it is the right one? How do you know if you are working on the right stuff? Just because you are not a big corporate, doesn’t mean you cannot access the same level of strategic support.

Your small business partner

If you are in the early days of a new business, thinking of starting a business or a very small business at a turning point, I can help you.

No matter how smart or capable you are, it is easy to get lost when you run your own small business. You may be swimming in ideas but struggle to make them happen. It is easy to become flat-out busy chasing your tail and running in all directions. You may find yourself rushing to sort out your website and marketing, before you have even nailed the basics of what you want the business to be and how you want it to grow.

Investing in some support in getting your strategy clear now, could save you years of heading in the wrong or random direction. Whatever stage your business is at, a sounding board can give you the reassurance that you are on the right path.

I can help you with strategic workshops or training through to ongoing mentoring and guidance. I will be happy to chat through what will be most helpful for you right now.

"I’ve had the experience of working in Strategy and felt I had a clear direction of where to take my own company.  However, setting out on my own I found myself digressing and chasing my tail for some weeks. I was making things too complicated, and my company offering was just not clear. This is when I got in touch with the Strategy Doctor and really should have done so sooner.”

Starter package

If you are in the early days of a new business, thinking of starting a business or a very small business at a turning point you may find the Strategy Doctor Starter Package most useful to you. Building a clear strategy for your business now, will save you a lot of time in the long run and increase your chances of success. It will make those every-day choices easier to make.

The Starter Package is designed to help you think or re-think a strategy for your business. Using an easy-to-understand framework of big questions, it will help you:

  • Understand your strategic choices
  • Define your business model and ideal customers
  • Set a direction and ambition for your business
  • Work out how to get there, considering relevant trends
  • Improve your chances of success
  • Ensure you are still in business in 3 years’ time! 

Investing in a three hour workshop with me now could save you from three years going down the wrong track.

Few people can afford to spend thousands on consultancy at this stage of their business. So the Starter Package is a more cost and time-effective option.

For £449 + VAT, you get two key documents and three hours of one to one conversation with me.

This time can be taken in one workshop or two online sessions.

I will then build you two documents:

  • Your business profile
  • Your strategy on a page

 

This rate is exclusively for micro-businesses and sole traders (under 10 employees & under £1m turnover).

Train me so I can do it myself!

You don’t wake up on a Tuesday and realise your dreams by Friday. Building a successful, sustainable business takes time. You may not even make any profit for the first few years of trading. That’s why every business, from multi-nationals through to one-person enterprises needs a strategy. This is your path to success and your confidence that you are working on the right stuff.

But that word ‘strategy’ can put a lot of us off. Strategy sounds complicated. It’s the stuff that big corporates do with expensive consultants or you need a business diploma to understand. You just want to get on with building your business.

What if there was a friendlier, easier way to work out the right direction for your business? With my flagship course ‘9 Questions to success’, you don’t need to be an expert. I have identified the key questions to answer that will get you there. I can train you on how to make the clear and critical decisions that will shape your future. I can you give you the tools that will turn those decisions into an action plan to achieve success. This live course is now being converted to an online programme you can do at your convenience.
