Hopefully you’re either thinking about resting up for the festive period or sitting somewhere sunny, relaxing during your well earned Christmas break; finally taking some time out with the family and friends. You’re reflecting back on the year and how your business has performed, and you are probably starting to turn your thoughts to the year ahead and what you would like to do better or differently.

You wonder to yourself how do those other business owners do it. The ones that seem less stressed, have more time in their day/life, have continued growth and appear to do it all easily. What do they know that I don’t? Who do they work with that I need to!

Great questions – we have the answer.

Imagine working in partnership with a team that has specialist knowledge across all areas of business from HR and marketing to strategy planning, financial performance and health, safety & wellbeing. A team that’s got your back and are committed to supporting you. From one-off advice and workshops through to consultants working in your business to add impact and lead specific projects. The people in this team have owned their own businesses and know the challenges that you face on a daily basis.

That team (your team) is POD | AdviceFirst and our secret weapon is a custom built Business Growth Dashboard. The Dashboard saves you time and money by centralising all your businesses goals and performance measures in one place. Making management and reporting on key strategic tasks and goals visible and simple. Giving you and your management team the ability to benchmark your progress with one click.

This is what other business owners who run highly successful businesses know, that leveraging technology to gain time and business insights is critical. At the same time simplifying reporting and allowing management to gain focus on what really matters and specifically, what drives performance.

In the image below from the Business Growth Dashboard, it shows the starburst wheel which gives you an instant, at a glance visual on how you are performing, month on month.

Sitting below the starburst is a one-page summary of all your strategic goals. Beside that are the performance measures you have set and the results you are achieving. Business owners use this page to run highly focused, outcome orientated team meetings to drive accountability and results visible to the whole team.

This is what those other business owners know and how they manage their business effectively. They also know that working with the right people like the Business Performance Coaches at POD/AdviceFirst helps you feel more confident, organised and in control. Achieving turnover, net profit growth and valuation shifts well above national standards, our clients know we enable them to achieve business results.

So now you know what to do, you can sit back, relax, enjoy your break feeling confident in the knowledge that you have a plan, a team behind you and the tools to take you and your business to the next level.

For less than $30 per month per user – this should be one of the easier business decisions you make heading in to the new decade.
