Clarity, Focus and Action

- Simon Buck

Welcome to our latest blog in our high performance organisation mini series. In this second blog we focus on the importance of entrepreneurs developing the necessary FOCUS, CLARITY and ACTION to unlock their true potential i.e. by creating a high performance organisation.

Many of today’s most successful business owners state that the smartest & most valuable decision that they ever took on their route to success was to hire an award-winning business coach/mentor with a proven track record of success.

For ambitious entrepreneurs that are looking to really scale their businesses the benefits of working with an award-winning business coach/mentor with a proven track record of success are considerable.

In the UK scale-ups employ over 3 million people and have a combined turnover in excess of £1.3 trillion. According to the ScaleUp Institute,  scale-ups are the engine drivers of local economies. They are twice as innovative as large firms, employ twice as many apprentices, and are on average 42% more productive than their peers.

Firstly – by working together you’ll develop the CLARITY, FOCUS & most importantly of all a detailed PLAN of ACTION to ensure that you scale your business to the levels that you have always strived for.

Consequently, your business can expect to see

1.Significant Revenue & Margin Growth

As a scale-up you should expect to benefit from significant growth (20%+) in revenue, margin and most importantly of all asset value. 

Scale-ups regularly see software like margins of 70% (gross) and 20% (net)

2.Cashflow/ Working Capital Improvements

With substantial margin improvements, you should also expect to benefit from substantial improvements in cashflow/working capital which will, in turn, allow you to accelerate growth rates further still, be it organically or via acquisition, hire better people, or simply take greater rewards for yourself.

3.Higher Valuations

Better still scale-ups typically benefit from significantly higher valuations as they focus on building asset value by investing in longer-term growth initiatives ultimately with an  exit strategy in mind.

Equally, as a scale-up entrepreneur, you can personally expect to benefit from;

1.Financial Freedom

Becoming an entrepreneur means you can reap the benefits of all your hard work. The only real cap to the amount of money you can earn is your own level of ambition. 

2.Greater Control

As an entrepreneur, you get to create your own destiny as well as have control over it. You control your day. You control what you do.

3.Greater Independence

Successful entrepreneurs are able to make all of the decisions relating to their company themselves; they have complete control. This allows for a huge degree of independence and a chance to shape one’s own life.

4.More Time

Having built a successful, growing business entrepreneurs benefit significantly from more time with friends, family and spending time doing the activities that they enjoy most.

5.Greater Fulfilment

Finally – Entrepreneurship can offer levels of fulfilment and achievement that are hard matched by any other type of employment. As an entrepreneur you accept the challenges, work hard to overcome them and when you achieve the desired results, you’re able to savour the moment. The feelings of satisfaction and achievement are simply unsurpassed.

As an experienced entrepreneur themself your coach knows only too well what it takes to succeed. Whilst it’s always your business your coach will still be hungry for success. They’ll be determined to help you succeed. Consequently, you can expect them to be both a supportive extra member of your team whilst also being tough on you and your team when required. 

The commitment required to scale a business in terms of your time and money is considerable. However, for those that commit 100%, the financial and personal returns far outweigh the investment.

For successful entrepreneurs the value of experienced third-party help & advice is immeasurable.

The one question successful entrepreneurs often reflect on is simply –  why didn’t I get help earlier?  They recognise that building a team of high quality experts, namely, accountant, solicitor, and business coach is a vital part of their entrepreneurial journey.

One of the biggest hidden costs that ambitious entrepreneurs regularly incur is as a result of their procrastination. The opportunity cost lost of delaying important decisions is often considerable.
