In this episode, Darren shares his transition from being an electrician to a business owner. He emphasizes the importance of seeking the help of a business coach who can guide you to grow your business, just like he did with Hiscocks Electrical. He also sought other guides such as business books to help him change his perspective about business.
In this last installment of this series, Ryan teaches us how to nurture a high-performance sales team. Your sales team is your primary business driver, so you need to build them up to make your business more productive.
In the second episode of the series, Ryan discussed what businesses need to know about sales pipelines and how it can help them grow. Owners, especially those who are just starting in the business world, need to be relatable. Potential customers need to see that businesses engage with the community because they have other goals aside from profit. When potential customers see this, they become more eager to transact with such companies.
In the first part of this series, we delve deep into the bidding versus selling process. We need to see business from a new perspective instead of just making the calls, crunching numbers, and passively waiting for results to happen. You will learn as much as I did about creating relationships rather than just gaining clients.
In this podcast, we will stray from the usual talk of business and productivity to sit down with David Griffiths. He shares with us his experiences as we explore the idea of what it means to pursue your passion regardless of arbitrary limitations like age.
Businesses of any size, at some point, will need to create systems, especially if they have any intention of growing and scaling. Creating an operation manual and having an established organisational structure are fundamental steps to having the right systems in place with the right people you need.
In the final episode of this series, you will learn how to manage internal business expenses, maintain and maximize employee productivity, and proper business cost forecasting. The secret to driving more revenue is understanding numbers. These numbers will tell a story—a story of what is not working and what suits well with the company.
In the second episode of this series, our guest Marti Amos is back to tell us all about systematizing. He shares how it can help free up your time so you can work on the more critical aspects of your business. We go over the essential things to consider when you set up your systems and tools you can use to make your work easier.
