Small Business Mentoring

 

MENTORING “MAZE-ABILITY”

- the art of finding your way through the maze of challenges facing small businesses!

HIGHVALE SMALL BUSINESS MENTORING provides an independent experienced “sounding board”, via an impartial source, with no vested interest, and all at a reasonable price to suit a small business budget.

Imagine having the opportunity to sit (or Skype) with your own experienced business mentor to “climb inside the operational side of your business” – to analyse, identify and question every aspect of your processes by focusing in 3 key steps on where you are, where you want to be, and how you will get to where you want to be!

SMALL BUSINESS MENTORING FOR THE REAL WORLD  … what is mentoring, and what’s in it for me?

The mentoring process includes identifying and discussing your particular business issues and challenges, and working together to help you to review your business structures and identify future trends and opportunities..         

..some of the reasons for mentors to be involved                                                      

mentors have been there and done that, mentors come with a network of connections, mentors have years of experience  in the real world and mentors genuinely believe in “contributing to the next generation” after their years of industry involvement.

 … AND WHAT ARE THE 3 KEY STEPS IN THE MENTORING PROCESS ?

INVOLVE ->… ENABLING YOU TO STEP OUT OF THE DAY-TO-DAY, AND TAKE AN OBJECTIVE  LOOK AT YOUR BUSINESS,

RESOLVE ->… CREATING SPACE TO THINK “SIDEWAYS” ON CHALLENGES, EXPLORE OPPORTUNITIES AND IMPLEMENT PLANS TO SUIT YOU,

EVOLVE ->… HELPING INJECT NEW ENERGY AND DIRECTION INTO YOU, ENABLING YOU TO TAKE YOUR BUSINESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

  …it’s hard to put a value on survival in the small business world, but having access to external impartial advice may be just what your business needs to provide focus IN achieving your business goals. … call 0412 584655 or e-mail for a quote.
… apart from previous industry experience, my involvement over the last 4 years working in a voluntary capacity as a Panel Member and Group facilitator for the Queensland Government Business Mentoring for Growth (M4G) program has resulted in exposure to a widely diverse range of owners seeking an honest and healthy reality check for their small business.

Revisit Your Business Strategy

You may already market great products, or provide great services .. no doubt to fill a perceived gap that you see in the market, and rightfully so you’re proud of it – so why change it?

Redesigning your products or services doesn’t necessarily mean starting from scratch, or even changing the way they look and feel. Nevertheless, it’s always worth taking a peek behind the curtain to consider the options available for greater effectiveness and efficiency that can deliver a higher level of consumer acceptance.

Working with you to reduce your overheads, tighten sourcing costs, and improve overall marketing without compromising profitability. It’s crucial for your business that you develop the most sustainable product or service available.

Work smarter, not harder.

Rethink Your Diversification Strategy

If you’re not moving forwards, you’re moving backwards: in business, there’s no such thing as standing still.

Is your business gaining or losing market share? Are you exposing yourself to new opportunities, or new risks? Are there avenues still left unexplored, hidden goldmines that could take your business to the forefront of the marketplace and keep it there? Or, just maybe, are there “blue ocean” opportunities for your business you had never even considered before?

Being business professionals with a real-world, first-hand understanding means we know what it takes to make your business excel in a hyper-competitive marketplace.
