What Is Business Development?

To us Business Development means transforming your business from a small owner controlled venture to an enterprise that can be replicated in other locations, that can function without the owner and that can be sold for a large sum of money. To that aim we devote our relationship with clients.

Here are some things to consider

Working on your business

Answering phones, replying to mail, talking with team members, fighting fires, juggling all the elements of your business at once – marketing, sales, management, operations, finances, cash flow, debtors, creditors, suppliers and more.

You’re extremely busy and you’ve just realized that you forgot to eat lunch again, and someone unexpected has just walked in the door.

Sound familiar?

This is what working in your business means. You’re in the midst of it and trying to handle it all and be everything to everybody.

What if you were to take a few steps back from your business and look at it objectively, saying, “Without me, what would happen? What do I want to happen? What needs to be done to free me up from working in it all the time?”

Just thinking about it, you can sense the huge difference this could make. Imagine taking some time away from day-to-day tasks and looking at your business in the long term. Think of the creative ideas or opportunities you could come up with!

This is working on your business.

Working on your business is the difference between your business just providing you with a job versus helping you attain your personal goals.

Think about why you went into business in the first place.

Financial independence? To be your own boss? To spend more time with your family?

Most businesses fail or never reach their full potential because their owners spend too much time doing the work that the business does, rather than managing and growing it.
