Sachin Sharma is The Most Sought-after Business Coach by Small Business Owners Who Wants to Build and Grow an Outstanding Business

 

Every business was once a small business. Techniques alone don't make a business big or successful. The mindset, the attitude of the business owner makes or breaks the business.

It is said that a Business cannot outperform its Leader.

This means that if you think your current challenge is - How to setup or grow the business then grow yourself first. When you grow, your business grows. It's that simple and yet majority of the business owners wait for their business to grow first. They don't know where they are making mistake because nobody told them this before.

When I approach a business owner or when they approach me, the question is always the same, Tell me how can I grow my business? I'm sure you would agree with me that everyone has their own definition of what growth means to them. If I collect all my experience and condense it into a simplified model then business growth happens in 3 stages -

 

 

Stage #1 - Setup

You are at this stage if

  1. You have an idea but not sure how to get the ball rolling
  2. You have launched your business but there is no paying client
  3. You have launched your business but there is still a lot of confusion around what you do

The key challenge that a business owner faces at this stage is

How to Get Clarity?​

 

If you don't step-up for this challenge then several issues can arise from it. For example -

  • You are not sure what you are selling
  • You are not sure who will buy it
  • You are not sure why will they buy it
  • You are not sure if they will like it or if that meets their expectation
  • You are not sure if this income stream is sustainable or is it going to be ad-hoc orders
  • You are not sure what the best way is to position yourself in the market
  • You are tight on budget and resources and therefore not sure how to market your product/service
  • You are still working in a full-time job to pay the bills and don't have enough time to setup this business
  • You have not done this before and it is very risky to leave your secure job for this business at this early stage
  • You are the sole bread-winner of the family and although you believe in your idea, you are scared of the risks involved.

I can keep going on. I'm sure you get my point that spending some time upfront to get clear about your Business Model, your Business Strategy and your Business Plan will help you to set more realistic goals and a strong foundation for a healthy and successful business.

Stage #2 - Sustain

You are at this stage if

  1. You have a few paying clients but your costs are more than your revenue
  2. You work very hard but you see very little results
  3. You do many different roles in your business because you can't afford to pay for help

The key challenge that a business owner faces at this stage is

How to Break-even or Make a Little More Profit?​ ​

 

If you don't step-up for this challenge then several issues can arise from it. For example -

  • You continue to work extremely long hours and not even get paid for your time
  • You not only invest your time and energy but also put in more money from your pocket to pay the bills
  • You deprive your kids and family of small things because you don't have enough money left after paying all the bills
  • You make adjustments to your lifestyle so you can keep the business running
  • You struggle to get products/services from your vendors/suppliers because they don't know if you can pay them or not
  • You can't afford to lose any of your paying clients because that will increase your costs even more
  • You are so busy in the day-to-day operations that you don't have time to find new clients
  • You spend so much time in meeting with new potential clients but it is almost impossible to convert them into paying clients
  • You are unable to convince a potential client about the value of your product/service
  • You work long hours, work on the weekends, no holidays, sleep less, eat unhealthy food, don't exercise, don't spend any quality time with your family and kids, don't spend any time with friends, don't do any activity that interests you...

You know that I can keep going on. I'm sure you get my point that it is critical that you get the control back on your business and your life by setting up your Sales Funnels that work, setting up Processes that work and getting your business to the point where you break-even and then start making profit.

​If you are at this stage then I would love to hear from you.

Send me a casual email to say Hello and let's see if there is anything I could do to improve your situation.

 

If you are at Stage #1 then it would be valuable for you to consider the challenges of Stage #2 right now. These challenges are inevitable. The only question is - How prepared do you feel?

 

Stage #3 - Systematise

You are at this stage if

  1. You have a steady Profit Stream
  2. You want to free yourself a little so business can operate in your absence
  3. You have repeatable processes in your business

The key challenge that a business owner faces at this stage is

How to Scale the Business?

 

If you don't step-up for this challenge then several issues can arise from it. For example -

  • You have formal Processes but in-formal Systems to connect these Processes together
  • You have formal Processes but they are not optimised
  • You have formal Processes but you don't measure how effective they are
  • You have formal Processes but majority of them are heavily manual
  • You have formal Processes that work when one or two people execute them. They become a headache when you think about a bigger team
  • You don't have proper Systems that will continue to produce consistent results even when your staff come and go
  • You don't have a one-stop visibility of all your Systems and Processes
  • You don't have much standardisation in the way you deal with your Customers
  • You don't have much standardisation in the way you deal with your Vendors/Suppliers
  • You working for the Processes rather than the Processes working for you

Once again I can keep going on. I'm sure you get my point that it is critical that you think in terms of Systems if your objective is to scale your business from Small to Medium.

​If you are at this stage then I would love to hear from you.

Send me a casual email to say Hello and let's see if there is anything I could do to improve your situation.

 

If you are at Stage #1 or Stage #2 then it would be valuable for you to consider the challenges of Stage #3 now. These challenges are inevitable. The only question is - How prepared do you feel?
