The Business Credibility Blueprint..
In 2008, after having coached people about motivation, achievement and presentation skills – for 8 years, I left full-time employment to work for myself.
Within a few months, I realised how little I knew about running a business. So, I had to learn very quickly.
I started by developing a marketing message. I learnt that marketing has a ‘syntax’, and that it was not the black art that I feared it was.
I learnt how to stand up in a business-networking meeting and deliver a seven-point marketing pitch, in just one minute. People starting asking for my advice, when it came to overcoming their fears of presentations at networking meetings. The more networking I did, and the more people I helped, the more knowledge of business I acquired. I started helping people with their business models and, a few years ago, rebranded myself as a business coach and trainer.
When talking to consultants and business owners, who worked on their own, maybe in nutrition, HR, health and safety or network marketing, etc. I found that people would be complaining about the same kind of problems:
They would be stressed; some of them had low self-esteem issues about their business credibility, which lead to procrastinating and a fear of failure. Just like me, many of them had a lack of all around business knowledge and had a fear of being found out as just being an amateur.
They had a limited knowledge of marketing and have difficulty asking for business. Many of them had a fear of public speaking, and appearing on video, they had a lack of time, not enough help and too much to do.
I help business owners to solve these problems by categorising them into 5 different areas:
1, Personal grounding.
2, Business value.
3, Marketing syntax.
4, Public speaking and videos.
5, Continuous creativity.
I have 10 tools, ranging from templates, processes, procedures to exercises that enable a person to reduce stress, build a successful business, while enjoying the process and having quality time away from their business.
It’s called the Business Credibility Blueprint. Please watch the video for further details.
