How many hours a week are you working?

It’s not uncommon for entrepreneurs to be working more than 60+ hours per week (that includes nights and weekends).

Here’s what a typical days looks like:

A customer calls - you’re on the frontline dealing with it.

Deadlines build up - you get in early and late to deal with them.

ambulance icon

A staff member calls in sick - you carry out their role (and yours).

The weekend arrives - you’re in the office by 8.00 am.

It’s unsustainable, certainly not fun and definitely not what you signed up for.

The Luxury of Freedom and Time Can Start Now

What would it mean to you to reduce the amount of time you work?

Imagine being less stressed and more present with family and friends. Better yet, imagine uninterrupted time to yourself - that’s the ultimate Zen.

But while there’s no shortage of information available about why you should have more work-life balance, nothing really shows you how.

Afterall, you’re a serious small business owner and find nothing tanagle in motivational quotes and lack the time to achieve mindfulness in Bali, right?

I want to share with you a solution I know works.

It’s a Solution Working for Other Small Businesses

Almost all small business owners experience the same pain points you’re feeling right now - like overwork and burnout.  But using our solution, they’ve gone on to recalibrate their business, refocus their offer and change the trajectory from ok to epic.

Here’s who has applied our solution:

"Working for myself and without staff or colleagues to bounce ideas off, it’s incredibly valuable to have someone I’m able to talk things through with. Tristan has been a wonderful asset as a business mentor and confidant, providing advice on everything from growth strategies to accounting software, and sharing his own experiences in taking a business from startup to the next level. I would 100% recommend him as an excellent starting point for any small business owner who’s wondering where to take their next step."

I’ve Been Where You Are Before

A decade or so ago, I set out on my own entrepreneurial journey in creating a cycling racewear business.

Back then nobody was holding my hand and shielding me from the problems small business owners experience - like staff management, government and corporate contracts and business building.

I cobbled together a USP and hit the road trying to sell it. Fortunately it worked and before long I was running a $300,000 business from my kitchen table.

But a strong start doesn’t mean continued success. Through poor decisions and ego, my enterprise turned into a $200,000 debt.

Through resilience and determination, I was able to rebuild and later sell my first business.

From start to finish, I did this by myself and learnt on the fly.  But I don’t want you to be like me.

Real small business success requires support and guidance and that’s where I can help you.
