Start ups and Micro Businesses

Getting started on your business journey can be tough, and almost all new owners start out with a rather limited experience of what business really needs from you in order to succeed.

In fact, it would be fair to say it’s a bit of a ‘unicorn’ situation to find a new business owner who is truly aware of what they are letting themselves in for, or who possesses the necessary skills and insights straight away. That’s where having a startup coach can give you the upper hand on your competition.

Learn through errors or benefit from the learning of a startup coach?

There is no substitute for experience, but there is the ability to access the experience of others to avoid making the same mistakes of those who have walked the path ahead.

So, what can a startup coach do to help a new business owner, or someone who has decided to move their business from micro upwards?

Well, in our experience, most new business owners are pretty bright people, who have oodles of enthusiasm, but sometimes direct that energy in inappropriate directions. They normally create a functional basic framework for their ‘self-employment’ but struggle to make the leap into being a productive employer with a growing team. They hit a barrier either before or after the first employee or two and can’t see how to crack the next stage nut.
