Why BizSmart®?

 

How Could You and Your Business Benefit from Joining BizSmart®?

 

At BizSmart we’ve helped hundreds of businesses work out the steps they need to take to grow their business in a successful and sustainable way. 

 

The focus of our support is on you, the business owner, and we can help you achieve the aspirations you have for your business. Many businesses get bogged down, just surviving when they could be thriving. If you’re putting in long hours without seeing the rewards you hoped for in the beginning, then perhaps it’s time to do something different?

 

BizSmart is a group of experienced professionals, working with business owners both on the ground  and online to help them take their businesses to the next level.

 

To find out more about us as individuals, have a look around the Core Advisors page. We’re different from anything else you can find online. All of us involved have run our own businesses and been successful in our business lives, but we don’t preach from on high.

 

We’re still out there, running our own businesses, and we’re keen to share our experience and that of the BizSmart Select Members to help you unlock the potential in your business.

 

 

We are made up of a range of ‘real’ and approved business owner specialists (not just business advisors) –  which means you can get practical timely advice from people who really understand where you are coming from!

The famous basketball player and coach, John Wooden, said:

 

“Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.”

 

We might suggest that the Select Members will challenge you, rather than argue with you. After all, it can be lonely as a business owner and even if you have a team around you, it can sometimes feel like you have no-one to bounce ideas off and share decision making.

 

Now you can seek opinions from others who have been there. Have a look though the members to see if there’s anyone who could help you with your current challenges…

 

 

Core Advisors

 

BizSmart’s Core Advisors are all experienced business owners from a wide range of backgrounds. Between them, they have helped hundreds of business owners to put in place the basics that have enabled them to grow their businesses in a sustainable way. If you access our Wingman service, you’ll be allocated the advisor who is the best fit for your business and can provide you with advice, guidance and accountability to help you grow your business. All of our Core Advisors still run their own businesses. They don’t claim to have “made it” – they’re constantly learning more about growing a sustainable business and are keen to share their mistakes as well as their triumphs to help you on your path to success.
