Software Developers: are you tired of ignorant, indecisive, cheap clients giving you the run around?

Ever felt like on giving up on technology and starting a woodworking business instead?  Tired of spending all your time, including evenings and weekends, helping clients who don’t appreciate your skills?  Is this really what you started your business for?

Shouldn't your business support you and your family?

Build a profitable, successful business with clients who respect your time and trust in your skills

Dream life

Instead of clients who constantly change their minds.  

Who argue over every invoice.  

Instead of working evenings and weekends and ignoring your partner.  

Instead of desperately emailing progress updates in the car park minutes before your kid’s school play starts.

Dream clients are out there.  The business you want is out there.  The life you want is only three months away.  

Have you ever looked at your day ahead and thought "fuck this"?

You started your business because you wanted the freedom to do things the right way, you wanted the flexibility to prioritise the important things in life and maybe, just maybe, you wanted a bit of extra money to make things a bit easier.  

But somewhere along the way, those ideals got lost.  

I know how that feels.  That was me and my business.  But I changed how I did things and turned my business around.  And I can do the same for you.  

“The almost altruistic way you help people turn their businesses back into the joy they went into business for, rather than the chore they endure on a daily, weekly, monthly basis I find quite remarkable … I now feel confident I will be able to claim my life back, enjoy my family and not resent the beast I have build up … with your help I will finally become a business owner and no longer the least respected employee” Martin Day

A four step plan to get your business to support you

  1. Prioritise: you need breathing space and an escape from the relentless pressure
  2. Fix your finances: getting profitable is the foundation upon which your business is built
  3. Find dream clients: don’t waste time on dead-beats when there are people out there who really need your help
  4. Free up your time: you started your business for freedom and flexibility but you won’t find much of either in 60-hour weeks

Cash is the lifeblood of every business.  When it’s flowing to the right places it gives you the breathing space you need to make the right choices.  So we run a Cashflow Assessment and use that to roll out a Profitability Plan for the business.  In three months you will be profitable, with money put aside for the important things.  

Not all clients are equal.  Some are dreams, some are nightmares.  So we take the time to profile the dream clients and put together a plan to get more of them.  The ones who treat you as a trusted partner, who pay without complaint, who you love to work with.  

And once we’ve got the money flowing and dream clients coming in, we can make sure you free up your time, so you’re not working all hours for scant reward.  Whether that’s automation, delegation or outsourcing, we make sure the way your business works reflects your true values without eating into the rest of your life.
