4 Things We All Hate About Delegation

Posted by Austin Walker on Jul 19, 2016 8:30:00 AM

While most of us know a successful delegator or two, that doesn’t make it any easier for us to become one. The illusion of losing control when we offload tasks to others can be a pretty compelling reason not to go there. Besides, how can we expect our employees, our customers, and that loan officer down at the bank to continue to take us seriously as entrepreneurs if we’re not trying to accomplish the work of at least half a dozen people at once?

Solid Bookkeeping - The Key To Growing And Exiting A Business

Posted by Matt Roberge on Sep 29, 2015 7:00:00 AM

Having a solid bookkeeping system in place is the key to growing a small business and implementing an exit plan. A great idea will get you going, but it won't necessarily lead to huge growth and an eventual exit. 

Growing a business takes a great idea, a strong strategic plan, and a way to measure your progress (i.e., bookkeeping). Seasoned consultants will often tell you to start with the end in mind; they are right. A good strategic plan starts with an end goal, which for many business owners is an exit. I will explain how a solid bookkeeping system will allow you to grow your business to a new level and execute an exit plan.

Posted by Matt Roberge on Feb 26, 2015 7:30:00 AM

He then worked his butt off for the rest of his life in everyday normal jobs providing for his family. He worked right up until the very last few weeks of his life. He was a great American that wanted nothing but a good life for his family.

Why Every Small Business Owner Needs a Mentor

Posted by Matt Roberge on Feb 17, 2015 7:30:00 AM

I am a firm believer that every small business owner needs a mentor. Even the best business owners have questions and need support at some point. Let's take a look at professional athletes for a second to get a different perspective.

Have you ever noticed how many coaches and mentors professional athletes have? The best athletes in the world, the ones at the top of their game have a plethora of coaches. A typical professional athlete has an entire coaching staff to rely on. Additionally many of them have an individual trainer or coach. They have someone to rely on when they go into a slump and someone to give them a different perspective. A good coach will pass on their years of knowledge that they have learned from their own career and experience in coaching. So if the best athletes in the world need a coach or group of coaches, why don't you as a small business owner?

What can a good coach do for your small business?
