Because a business should give you more life
For the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), growth is the natural direction but they usually experience a pattern of growth followed by plateau, growth then plateau again. In addition, the business sometimes experiences setbacks, when an attempt to reach the next step results in a nasty fall. This is usually when a period of growth has been launched into without proper planning, resulting in a business that cannot cope in its new environment or with its new structure.
When your business is structured and has been planned for, it means you have systems in place so it runs efficiently and your product delivery is consistent. When your team members are not constantly knocking at your door, it means they know what they are doing, you have given them a clear direction and they have been empowered to go on with their job. When your customers keep coming back and are raving fans, it means you have the right marketing and selling strategies in place and your revenue continues to grow.
A stable, profitable business can provide you with the life you want for yourself and your family.
Daniela has helped me understand what I must become to progress my business to the next level. Always holding me to account, but never judgemental Daniela has helped me discover my own solutions to my problems. In addition she has made me aware of my bad communication habits and shared with me resources that enable me to resolve them. As a result I have been able to communicate better direction and focus to my team, so we can achieve faster business growth.Hamish Dobbie, MD Face & Body Ltd
Working with our Business Coach Daniela since September 2016 has been a fantastic and liberating experience. The supportive advice and guidance are always delivered with good humour and often a dose of frank reality, both much appreciated. Sometimes it is as simple as holding up a mirror and allowing you to see the blindingly obvious, hiding in plain sight.Martin Stevens, Director HarrisonStevens
Being a business owner and having to juggle the multiple hats - in my case of a owner, manager and dentist had started to take its toll. Having worked with Daniela for eight months I am now starting to experience more clarity and a better understanding of how to manage the variables of business - time, team money and delivery. I can now see the priorities that I need to set to make the progress that I want to achieve. Daniela has a great knack of saying just the right things or pointing you in the right direction to get you back on track to achieve your goals.Neeraj Puri, Director Integrated Dentalcare Ltd.
The turnover has increased, the business is better organised with systems and processes in place. I delegate more and spend less time on activities that can be done by someone else. We don't hang on to elements of the business or products that are not profitable.Jo Lochhead, MD The Crafty Kit Company
Knowing and using your numbers in business
One of the biggest challenges in any business is the management of cashflow. In fact, the two most common complaints I hear of are cashflow and marketing. Cashflow is, however, purely a symptom within a business – and it’s wise to consider the causes. Often, one of the major causes is the lack of budgeting…

The previous year before ActionCOACH we were making just over £400K gross profit and this year, having just finalised the accounts, we just finished at £750K, so a massive increase, we went from a £1.5M turnover company to a £2.5M turnover company. The great thing about ActionCOACH is that there is an infrastructure, a methodology, there are tools, there are things that have demonstrated to work over and over again with lots of businesses; and then there are things we think we know and are blindly obvious but we still don’t do them so one of the greatest things of working with an ActionCOACH is that they make you focus on stuff that actually makes a positive difference to your business.
