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.

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.

ONLY ONE ACTION IS REQUIRED

The printed word alone will never tell you if we can work well together; particularly in this unregulated market where anyone can call themselves a business coach.

There is an easy way to find out. Call and:

  • Listen ‘between the lines.’
  • Ask questions to help you decide whether you’ll feel comfortable in a coaching partnership with me.
  • I’ll gladly meet with you (in Sydney) - without any obligation - exploring your issues, showing you who I am and what I can offer you and your business.

Call me on 0411 680 070.

Evan is very easy to deal with... and he just 'gets it'.

When i first began working with Evan almost two years ago I had no idea just how much it would change my business for the better. Not only has my turnover trippled in that time, my ability to manage all areas of my business has grown beyond what I thought I was ever capable of.

Nirmal

Business Owner
My wife and I have been working with Evan for almost a year. Without his guidance, we wouldn’t have gained the clarity on what we wanted to achieve in the business and the entrepreneurial journey would have been very difficult. There were many situations in business where it was very tough for both of us to make the right decision and stay focused on what we were good at. Evan was always there for us at difficult times and he genuinely helped us overcome every obstacle on our way. He is a very clear communicator and leader who is extremely committed to helping his clients succeed. He cares for his client's business like his own business which is what we love about him. We highly recommend his coaching services to all business owners who want to take their business to the next level.

Frank

Business Owner
Evan is a down to earth person and a great allrounder as a business coach. What you throw at him, he will respond to like a champ. That is what you need as a small business owner, as we have many roles to fill and many areas to be good at, operationally and strategically. I certainly recommend him.

Saba

Business Owner
Evan's business coaching has totally transformed our business and personal lives. Evan's experience and strategic coaching has helped us make important business decisions that if were not taken on time could have put our business in jeopardy. He is one of those business coaches who truly care about you and your business. His coaching has helped us in low times of our business. We were allowed to discuss anything on our sessions without being judged which gave us confidence to open up and bring issues to the table for solutions. His strategic coaching motivated us and kept us focused when it was so easy to be distracted and lose motivation for hard work. No words can describe how thankful we are to Evan for his coaching and for the value that he has been adding to our business and lives. Thank you Evan, you really are the best.

Rachel

Business Owner
Evan really pushed us to think deeply about our business and the values that we believe in. There were some hard conversations, and we had to dig deep, but the clarity and unity we came away with made it a really worthwhile experience.

Cooper

Business Owner
Evan was a guest on a podcast I produced. His insights and tip for creating a solid culture and values in business has changed the way my business operates.
