Hi Biz Coach Mel here,

Did you know 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years and 66% during the first ten. My Team and I are on a mission to change this statistic and to let entrepreneurs know … It doesn’t have to be this way!

However, we’re not one of those companies that will set you up with unrealistic expectations (one of our biggest pet-peeves) we know you’re smart and can sniff out that crap a mile away. We’re all about telling it like it is! Business Ownership is NOT for the people who aren’t willing to learn and do the work everyday to make forward progress. After all, we want you to

be a business owner who defies business startup statistics!

BECOME A SMART Biz BUILDER TODAY!

Over the last year, we have been hard at work pulling together all the lessons we learned over our combined 10 years experience as entrepreneurs. We beta tested with ten different businesses made necessary tweaks, improved the client experience, and achieved great business results for us and our clients. Along our journey we found ourselves dubbing our program graduates as “Smart Biz Builders” and it stuck!

THE RESULTS OF ALL THIS WORK IS OUR …

Our Smart Biz Builder 1:1 Coaching Program is a 13 week educational program where clients get the full attention of two business coaches on their business. Its a big investment in time, energy, and money, and rightly so!

 

TRUTH BOMB #1 here!!! … you have a CHOICE!

You either invest in a great business building program now (whether it’s ours or someone else’s) or risk spending more time and paying 2x as much (probably more) on the back-end for the many attempts at different approaches and strategies you’ll end up trying to make up for the lack of business building knowledge.

 

SMART Biz BUILDER TIP: NOT ALL APPROACHES AND STRATEGIES ARE RIGHT FOR EVERY BUSINESS AND TIMING IS A HUGE FACTOR! WE’LL BE SHARING SOME POPULAR EXAMPLES TO PROVE IT.

 

Here’s what some of our Smart Biz Builder Program graduates are saying …

“I loved the in-depth education and personalized, hands-on attention I received to incorporate what I was being taught to my individual business. I have been trying to launch my business concept for years and completing the Smart Business Builder Program put me in a position to confidently do so with a living business blueprint to guide me in all my business decisions throughout the life of my business.”

– Carmen Bodle | On Purpose Boutique

“The Smart Business Builder Program provided me with the understanding and ability to clearly and confidently describe my specific business, services, customers, and brand. The personal and customized coaching I received was invaluable. I am now fully aware and intentional about how I look at my business, operate my business, and make all decisions with regards to my business.”

– Mark Langston | Langart Design

“As an entrepreneur who has multiple talents and desires, being able to focus and get clear on a singular set path has always been a struggle for me. Going through the Smart Business Builder Program was one of the best decision I made for my business development. It was both educational and transformative, delivering individualized and concentrated business coaching that addressed my unique vision and aspirations.”

– Davina Lyons | Davina Lyons Enterprises

We’re proud of what our clients have accomplished. With that said, my team and I began discussing how we could get this incredible business building education in the hands of MORE people! We modeled variations of Price, Product, Timing, and Place after a few hours we reached an impasse. You see we really didn’t want to compromise any of the value… so we did what Smart Biz Builders DO! We asked our business owner community.  

Here is what OUR BIZ COMMUNITY said they wanted

  1. Teach it ONLINE!!! (everyone seems to be living the laptop life)

  2. Extra time to complete the exercises

  3. Exercise discussion and examples

  4. Prorate the costs

  5. and most didn’t mind learning as a group (approx. 5 - 10 clients)

This was great news for us and more importantly for OUR CLIENTS!

Only thing left to decide was, what we should call this fabulous NEW offer? Just when we thought we were done!

HOW DO I KNOW THIS PROGRAM / WORKSHOP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Below is a list of things our clients conveyed to us before joining our program.
Do any of these resonate with you?

  • Eager to get started building a business but don’t know where to begin.

  • Puzzled by the numerous and long list of do’s and don’ts of a entrepreneurship.

  • Nervous that I’ll waste time, energy, and money on the wrong things.

  • Admire my competition so much that I changed my strategy and/or overwork myself trying to compete.

  • Lost as to what business niche to target (i.e., difficulties determining who is the most likely to buy).

  • Confused by the various conflicting advice about starting a business (e.g., to have a business plan or not to have a business plan).

  • Everyone I follow makes it seem like owning a business is easy, why am I struggling?

  • I get clients here and there, but nothing steady enough for me to quit my job.
