To the Tradie/Small Business Owner,
5 Points regarding the value of Athol’s mentoring service, apart from the point someone made that he was a ‘great tool’ for a business !
Business Services for Tradies
- Offers an outsider’s perspective of my business; how someone not involved with the technicalities of my job sees my operation (eg. uniform is a PRIORITY)
- Helps me to sharpen my focus on what my best client is, where to look for that client, and ways to grab that clients attention (eg lumpy mail)
- Provides ideas to build goodwill (eg a gift to meet the need for significance)
- Helps with pricing strategy (eg low price Vs high quality)
- Streamlines back office operations by use of technology (eg IT automation of routine tasks)
- Drives accountability – the regular reviews of my performance keeps me working on important tasks and not drifting from crisis to crisis (this is more than 5 but I know you’d like a bonus)
When Athol is coaching me I often think ‘gee, I know that!’, but I doubt that I would have taken action without the prompting and the accountability of Athol’s coaching, nor would I have been able to pull it all together in a timely manner (within my lifetime). Athol will help you bring out the success in you. He is more than a ‘great tool’, he is the Secret Weapon your competitor does not have.
