The following is from an email from a client using the How to Turn Your Business Into a Profit Machine that Runs Without You Program.
Good Afternoon Greg,
I am one of those crazy (passionate??) people working on the computer on a Sunday afternoon with a perfect sunny Melbourne day outside!
I have completed the Profit Machine Program sections that cover the following remaining program sections:
• One page business plan
• Business systems section
• People systems section
• My Action Plan
Found the Profit program worthwhile with the following benefits:
1. Cut out all the fluff and got down to the main points
2. I like the One Page Business Plan (anything to do with One Page I like!)
3. The accounting section was good because I got to do some numbers and base my marketing strategies around the accounting figures
4. Aligned my marketing to my business planning
5. Created an Action and Implementation Plan to make It all happen
6. Identified business systems that I need.
7. Looked into the People systems that I require, whilst investigating contractors and external assistance
8. Had a closer look at how the business functions: Managing Director, Marketing, Operations, Admin
9. I have a business planning template in place to undertake similar planning at the commencement of each financial year
10. Can now scoff at my original 30 page, colourful business plan that promised the world and maybe wasn't as practical as it could've been.
11. Identified the areas of the business that I need to work on, the systems and documents I need to produce
12. Thought about some of the further marketing materials I need to produce
13. Considered how to best manage external contractors
14. Thought further on how to develop the company brand
15. Started to get some good lists together of what needs to be done
16. Identified a friend to keep me accountable to the Action Plan and list of items
17. Thought about the people systems, which I hadn't to any great extent previously
18. Thought a bit more on previous and current strategies and how to make improvements
19. Enjoyed the step by step program with its organised sections
