Insights Into The Very Real Challenges Facing Entrepreneurs At The Coal Face

- Rachel Spratling

A very warm welcome to our latest blog . Today’s blog is the first part of four blogs that look into why it is important for ambitious entrepreneurs to stop, reflect and then take positive action to unlock their business’ true potential.

In this first part of our latest mini series we revisit the 3 different options to accelerate the growth of your business.

As ambitious business owners, we are all fascinated by others and their individual success stories. Be it international sports stars or serial entrepreneurs we are all desperate to understand the secrets behind their successes.

Contrary to the many myths around successful entrepreneurs and their individual entrepreneurial journeys these entrepreneurs are rarely born with the necessary skills, let alone the knowledge to create a winning business.

Like the top athletes, most successful entrepreneurs recognise the need to have great coaches/mentors. They all recognise the importance of learning what it takes to succeed, what it takes to navigate the numerous challenges and ensure their respective businesses realise their true potential.

For many years the traditional business growth stages have been widely discussed by both academics and business studies students alike. However this traditional analysis of what stage a business is at does little to provide any real insight into the very real challenges facing entrepreneurs at the coal face. 

Consequently at Chalkhill Blue we’ve created our own methodology for assessing businesses based on their specific challenges. Our Milestone Survey allows us to not only assess a business based upon its specific challenges but also to understand the diverse range of emotions that invariably accompany the daily challenges that successful entrepreneurs experience along the way.

As businesses grow, they invariably face some very specific challenges. Understanding how best to address them, in what order, whilst also identifying the opportunities associated with these challenges is a critical part of unlocking your business’ true potential.

Our unique survey categorises businesses into one of four distinct phases, namely : SWIM / RUN /  JUMP / FLY based upon the specific challenges that those businesses are facing alongside their respective growth ambitions. 

Based upon the different phases above, if you are one of those entrepreneurs that want to scale up and grow turnover by 20%+ year after year, enjoy market-leading gross (70%+) and net profits (20%+)  are you clear about what is required? Have you got a great coach/mentor to help you unlock your true potential? If the answer is No then isn’t it about time you too explored how One to One Coaching could accelerate your business’ growth potential?

Similarly – if you’re hoping to build a business that you can ultimately sell, have you ever wondered why less than 11% of businesses listed for sale in the UK are ever sold? If you have never built a business with the aim of maximising its value and then sold it isn’t it about time you found an experienced coach/mentor that by working together One to One can leverage all of their experience and ensure that you are able to do exactly that?

Our One to One high-performance coaching is all about helping ambitious entrepreneurs and their organisations reach their full potential.
