Our Mission is Solve Business Problems for Your Sustainable Business Success
Businesses have a lifecycle from start-up, through sustainability, growth and a lifestyle plateau and eventually to an exit sale or a closure. Along the way, problems and difficult times often occur. Businesses fail. Their growth plateaus. Leaders are stressed and over extended. We have bundled our resources to show how to solve business problems along each stage of a business’s lifecycle.
DIY Failing Business Turnaround
Saddest, and all too common, are those businesses experiencing problems that can often lead to failure. Some estimate that 1 in 5 businesses fail. Others quote statistics that 50% of new businesses fail in the first year.
This s a tremendous waste of time, effort, money and dreams.
Our DIY Failing Business Turnaround resource bundle is designed to help solve business problems
We have got used to the word “sustainable” in the context of climate. The same term can apply to a well managed business tuned for each stage of its lifecycle.
A Sustainable business can continue indefinitely with;
- acceptable workload and stress for owners and staff
- sufficient profitability and
- a low waste, optimal, operation work flow
You know the adage; “Success is in the eye of the beholder” or, in our case, the “Eye of the Leader“.
Typically, success falls into 3 types;
- a growth phase for start-up and onwards
- a change to a “lifestyle” stage when the pressures from growth are replaced with a plateau of comfortable and profitable routines and
- an exit sale
Different types of enterprises define success in different ways. A NFP might call it funds raised for their charitable work. A local government might define it as ratepayer satisfaction. A private company might define it as profit. The moral is that success is measured differently for different types of enterprise.
Individual Business Leaders might also define success differently. Some want to grow at all cost. Others have worked hard and now want a better lifestyle rather than just more growth. Some are looking to sell the business and make a good exit that leaves them comfortably off.
The take-away is that success means different things to different leaders.
12Faces recognizes this. We offer you a choice of advisory options so you can assemble a business that maximizes your personal definition of success by solving business problems.
