Give me six months…Why Hire A Business Coach?Profit Strategy SessionRent My BrainStrategy SessionRecommended Resources Give me six months and I’ll help you rocket your revenues. Increase your margins. Boost your profits. Faster and with greater satisfaction than anything you’ve ever experienced before… Do you want to transform your business, and maybe your entire life? If so, this may be the most exciting message you will ever read… Let me say this in the plainest language possible… Most business advisers have it backwards. They expect you to pay a small fortune so you can work with them and trust that somehow you’ll see a return on your money without a shred of proof. Frankly, I think that’s nuts. The way I see it, when you hire someone to help you grow revenues and profits you should know with 100% certainty that not only will you earn your money back in spades, but that you’ll see a good return quickly… Within a few months at most, sometimes within as little as a few weeks. Does that sound impossible? It IS impossible if you want to keep doing exactly what you’re doing already… It IS impossible if you’re convinced that you already know what you’re doing and that you don’t need any new ideas… It IS impossible if you think that what you’ve been doing up till now is sufficient and all you need is a few simple tweaks here and there… On the other hand, it is absolutely possible if you and I decide to work together, because when you hire me to advise you in growing your business, as you take action you’ll see cash returns far in excess of what you pay me. Not only that, but you’ll be completely satisfied with the results no matter what. Either you’re totally satisfied, or it costs you absolutely nothing. Am I taking a big risk making such a bold claim? No – not at all… You see, I’ve been making this same promise with complete confidence since the Fall of 1995. And though several recessions even in these wild and rough economic times my clients’ businesses are growing and thriving. Here’s a short list of some of the things I’ve helped them achieve: A software company reports that they went from breaking even on $7 million in sales to netting a whopping 32% profit margin on $22 million in a year-and-a-half A custom newsletter publisher told me last week that sales are up 38% and profits… Yes, profits are up 38% after working together for only 10 weeks A struggling Spanish-language e-commerce site sold for more than $18 million after we repositioned the business as a “marketplace” and content aggregator A consumer health-care client just recorded a 37% increase in profits (a nice mid-six figure jump) in the depths of the recession by using my sales-stacker and margin-magnifier strategies After systemizing their sales process, a vendor of reconditioned industrial hardware grew 200%, adding $12 million in new sales over last year’s numbers A local pharmacy chain from $7 million to $17 million in 12 months, and then added another $5 million the following year based on an acquisition strategy I devised for them Grew a $500,000 training company that was barely breaking even to $1.8 million with over $200,000 in profits Invented a new profit center for a client that increased per customer sales from $44,000 to $120,000 Helped a technology company save itself from bankruptcy, and then positioned it to sell for almost four times what the owners thought it was worth How I can help you get the same or even better results If you’re read my best selling book “Be Unreasonable” or seen any of my Extraordinary Results articles and video blog posts over the years, then you know I have a unique take on how to grow profits for entrepreneurial businesses. After all, how else could I help client after client produce such stellar increases in profits? Now… I’m guessing you’re reading this because you already believe you could profit from having your own adviser to help get your business from where you are now to where you really want to be. That, and you have a sense my singular perspective is just what you need. Maybe it’s because you’re feeling the pain of this slow economy and your sales are flat. Or maybe sales are fine, but it’s costing you too much to make them so your profits are off. Maybe you thought the way you’ve been running your business was okay until now, but you’ve finally realized you’re never going to reach your wealth goals using the same strategies… In other words, it’s time for a change. Or perhaps you’re missing opportunities because you don’t have cash or credit to take advantage of them. Or your competitors are doing things you wish you could afford to do. Or maybe you’d like to buy your competitor for dimes on the dollar, but there’s just no way you can pull it off. Or is it simply that you’re working way too many hours and not getting what you want in return? That you feel burnt out, like you’ve lost the thrill you once had when you started this… That there are just too many things keeping you up at night, and the fun is really, truly, gone… Let me tell you something very important… I can help you if you want my help… And I can help you right away… In addition to starting and selling two international banking software companies, Henco Research and Vertex Business Systems, I’ve consulted with hundreds of clients getting jaw-dropping business results over and over again. I’ve advised and worked hands on with successful, sophisticated entrepreneurs running all sorts of businesses: In business-to-business (B2B) as well as business-to-consumer (B2C) In dozens of industries, including software, consulting, health care, nutritional supplements, medical practices, dentistry, e-commerce, retail, online services, real estate, training, consulting, chiropractic, investment banking, manufacturing, venture capital, legal, construction, publishing, banking, telecommunications, and insurance. Of many sizes: from well-funded start-ups to large enterprises. Our sweet spot is from $2,000,000 to $10,000,000 With different types of products: physical goods, services, software, and information, and all possible combinations. Before I continue, it’s important to let you know that my advisory services are not for you if… You’d rather spend your time reading and listening to podcasts and trying to implement an effective business growth strategy for yourself, without having to use any outside advisors. You’re not willing to move quickly, or are uninterested in new and innovative tactics. You’d rather use come up with your own ideas (if and when you do), and you believe you already know pretty much everything that’s going to work in your company. You already have a lawyer, accountant, or financial planner, or you belong to Vistage or EO, and think you have all the solid business growth advice you need. On the other hand, if you’re looking for top-notch, actionable business advice that’s custom-fitted to your exact business, as well as someone to act as an unbiased sounding board – your very own master-mind, we may be a very good fit. You’ll become part of an exclusive group of clients that get access to me and my business growth ideas. If you have a solid business that’s simply not performing the way you’d like and you want more… I can help. But you need to know that the way I do things is different than other consultants and coaches in a few very important ways. First, most business coaches use a standard solution they originally created for themselves. Now they’re using the same approach over and over no matter what kind of business you have. Guess how well that really works? I’ve worked hand-in-hand with hundreds of entrepreneurs and I understand how businesses really make money. I never use a generic solution because that can’t possibly get you what you want. The approach we use to grow your business will be tailored precisely so it’s going to work no matter what market or niche you are in. Second, a lot of consultants and coaches expect you to supply answers to their questions so they can feed back those same answers as solutions to your problems. It’s almost as if they’re learning on the job. Unlike many coaches, I’ve started and sold several of my own high-technology companies, a sales training company, a business coaching franchise, and I’m currently building an anti-aging nutritional supplement company. The point of telling you this is that I know what I’m doing and I have the track record to prove it. I’ll quickly develop a strategy for you and we’ll put it into action right away. Usually you’ll get results quickly, within two to four weeks. In the weird case that something doesn’t produce results immediately, we’ll implement an alternate approach and keep going. Third, and most importantly, when we agree on what you’re going to do next, I will make sure it’s easy for you to take action. Once we decide we’re a fit for each other, I am totally committed to seeing you reach your business and personal goals, and I will go all the way to make sure you get there. Here’s exactly how I’m going to help you reach quickly your business goals Together we’re going to take a deep dive into your business and identify the key points of leverage. We’ll look at your products and services mix, your pricing models, your lead generation systems, your selling systems, data-base marketing opportunities, your customer monetization strategies, joint venture and strategic alliance opportunities, your finances and available capital for expansion, merger and acquisition opportunities, new business spin-offs, vertical integration opportunities, and other leverage points we can use to scale and grow your business. Then I’m going to apply my five-step growth system which I’ve used to help thousands of business owners ramp up their profits. How well does this approach work? Take a look at the results from a couple of my clients. “Paul designed strategies and helped us do three things: repackaging our product, crafting lots of upsells, and implementing a continual stay-in-touch campaign. Here’s what happened: in the first year, training and product sales were up 89% and profits grew 292%. In the second year, with a little more tuning sales went up a total of 122% and overall profits jumped a CRAZY 950%.” Bob Negan - Whiz Bang Training Here’s another one I think you should read: “I was always extremely busy, and thought I couldn’t take on any more. Of course I wasn’t always doing the right things to make my business grow. Working closely with Paul I discovered exactly what to do, and more importantly how to do it to dramatically ramp up my sales, systemize my processes to handle the growth, and organize the executive functions of my team. We added a systemized PR campaign and with Paul’s guidance, shifted our sales approach. Last year I went from wondering if my company was going to make it, to doubling my revenue while working less. Just two months into this year, we have already booked enough work to quadruple our revenues (400% gain) and will double again before the year is out.” Steven W. Harden - Lifewings [To See More Testimonials CLICK HERE] Here’s your next step: If you want real results rather than just promises — and you’re willing to commit to working together for 12-months to achieve this, then we should talk. As you’ve already seen, you’ll get powerful tactics you can use right now to create a substantial flow of new sales. Next we’ll dig deeper and identify every opportunity available to you for growing your business to the next level and develop a comprehensive, easy to implement game plan. So how much is all this going to cost? My fees are very reasonable for the kinds of results you’ll be getting and are based on the size of your business and last year’s revenue. Typical monthly retainers start at $6k for a company with more than $1,000,000 in gross sales, plus 3% of the documented increase in revenues I help you produce. A moment ago I said my fees are reasonable, and that is because your results are guaranteed in this important way. When you 1) work with me for 12 months and 2) diligently do the things you agree to do, I guarantee you will be fully satisfied with the results. If you aren’t, I’ll continue to work with you at no charge until you are satisfied, or at my option, I’ll refund your money. So you shoulder no risk whatsoever and you win in either case. Now, to be frank, there’s only a small chance we’ll end up working together. I might not be right for you, and you might not be right for me; however, if the chemistry is right, the sky is the limit. If not, we will part ways. If you do begin a full-service advisory engagement with me, my team and I will immediately start digging deep into your business and learn everything we can about your organization. You (and your team) will spend a full day with us doing a deep dive Strategy Session and then we’ll customize my “15% Solution” Business Growth Methodology to your business’ needs and create a plan to deliver the return-on-investment I demand for every one of my clients.
