ARE YOUR REASONS FOR BEING IN

BUSINESS:

  • You wanted to make a lot of money?
  • Believed you would have more time for yourself and your family?
  • That you would not have to answer to others?

You'd better think again.

What are the six most common reasons these objectives are not met?

Poor management

Business people often fail to recognise what they don’t, and can't, do well at in business. Too often they resist or reject asking for help; to their detriment.

Insufficient capital

Owners underestimate how much money is required to make a successful business; not only the cost of starting, but the cost of staying in business.

Lack of core values

These are the things that people believe are important in the way they live and work. Most people do not understand the importance of values to their business.

Rapid growth and over expansion

Owners, entrepreneurs and leaders often confuse success with how fast they can expand. They don’t conduct thorough research to ensure they get the timing and funding right.

Lack of planning

It is critical for businesses to have a plan, including a clear strategy and unique value proposition. The vast majority never, never ever reach their potential because of this fundamental shortcoming.

Staffing

Guiding, setting expectations and outcomes, truly listening etc. while also handling office politics, silos and 'real world' problems are some of the issues most leaders do not simultaneously manage well.

WHO I COACH & MENTOR

Most business owners believe that the issues (problems) preventing them from growing are external factors; such as market opportunities, gaining new customers, product issues etc.

This is not the case. The issues - described in the column above - are largely internal and lie with the owner. The good news is, these problems are not only common to most businesses, but are highly predictable. I know, and this is supported by studies and research, when these problems are going to occur. You definitely need to know! My role is to support and motivate you; to encourage you to openly discuss your circumstances and needs. I help you focus and prioritise, while presenting an unbiased view. Importantly, I help you view the situation from a different perspective. To help you stay ahead of the problem, I draw on my coaching and business experience, allowing for an outcome that has been well thought through, discussed and analysed.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES ME FROM OTHER COACHES?

My

EXPERIENCE

I started and ran my own businesses successfully for 30+ years. Having ‘been there’, I truly understand the numerous issues confronting my clients. My experience and expertise in ‘start-ups’ across different industries, growing them into viable companies and then exiting them successfully, can definitely help you to greater success in your business.

No pre-made programs or questionnaires. I use an evidence based approach, i.e. systems thinking (examining the links and interactions making up your business), self-awareness (understanding you and your motives), and business competence (how you communicate and express yourself). Having a Masters in Business Coaching (UOW) helps me achieve this.

My

APPROACH

Family

BUSINESS

Having worked with family members, I understand the dynamics between family, management and ownership in family run business. My expertise extends to developing and implementing business strategies, how to resolve disputes and the crucial planning for handing the business over to the next generation.

Evan helped me to discover my potential and to put into place procedures so I could take advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves.

Bryan

Start-up Entrepreneur
One of the benefits of my discussions with Evan is that he is able to bring a different perspective to the conversation. Having many viewpoints available when looking at issues is always helpful.

Neal

Business Owner
As an accountant, I have referred numerous of my clients to Evan for business coaching - with great success. I understand the multiple challenges faced by small and medium businesses and believe most could do with a good business coach to assist them. They need look no further than Evan.

Adiel

Accounting
Evan has been a terrific support over the many years that I have known him. Most importantly, he listens and does not judge. Instead, he always provides considered feedback and advice that has proven to be valuable in both my personal and business life.

Mike

Business Owner
I have been working with Evan for about five years, with great success. He has a no-nonsense professional approach, is collaborative and in tune to those he is working with. I have no hesitation recommending him.

Lara

Business Owner
I have dealt with Evan Goodman on a professional level for over 10 years and I consider his knowledge on all matters of business to be second to none. My company is currently contracting Evan as a consultant on SEO/SEM matters and as usual his expertise is proving invaluable. I highly recommend Evan's services as a mentor, coach, advisor etc for anyone in business who needs help in areas unknown, or anyone who is looking to expand and is unsure about the next steps to take. Evan is very easy to deal with... and he just 'gets it'.

Ross

Business Owner
Evan Goodman has been our business mentor for several years now, and in that time our turnover has grown by 400%. With this expansion we have also faced new challenges, so it has been great to have Evan’s wise counsel in working through the options. He is also a genuinely nice guy.

Helen

Business Owner
Evan Goodman has an incredible knowledge on all matters of business and listens carefully at all times. Therefore, I have no hesittion to highly recommend Evan as a mentor, advisor and coach.

Patrick

Business Owner
After collaborating with Evan for several months, and am struck by the enormous value that coaching, and Evan in particular, provides. I recommend him strongly to my executive clients.

Neil

Business Owner
Evan has the ability to really get to the heart of a problem and ask the right questions, which in turn gets you to think about it in a whole new light. His advice is always honest, direct and knowledgable and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services

Freddie

Business Owner
Evan brings a wealth of experience & business acumen that allows him to understand your business needs. I have found Evan to be professional and a great coach as he knows how to really get to the source of an issue through effective questioning.

Catherine

Business Owner
A fantastic coach. Was there when I really needed him and helped me through a difficult time. I would highly recommend him.

Guy

Business Owner
I have known Evan Goodman for over 12 years and have witnessed first hand his success in building successful businesses. Evan is an excellent communicator and an experienced accredited professional in building and running businesses. As a business operator myself, I live the daily challenges of growing and sustaining a healthy enterprise, and as such I know that Evan fully understands what obstacles face business owners. I have seen him mentoring high profile professional Athletes and assisting them to successfully transition to life beyond sport. He has helped many capable people to positively reassess how they approach their operations and he has without doubt been beneficial to our 25 year (and still growing) successful company. He is certainly worth speaking with if you are passionate about your business.
