When you are in trouble……

When the proverbial hits the fan.
When the crisis explodes.
When the unexpected rocks your boat.
When you don’t think you can see any way out of the maze.
When the mountain looks to high to climb.
When the support suddenly drops away.
When you are alone and afraid.
When you have crashed.
You are never alone – call me.
Its what I do.
I could have been one of the Tracy brothers.
Thunderbird 7 – the business coach and strategist.
I will always stay calm and:

  • contextualise the situation
  • quantify the potential loss
  • determine the solution
  • examine the options
  • decide the plan
  • put together the time, money and people
  • give the team the Henry V speech
  • execute the plan
  • never take my eye off the ball
  • remind everyone that
  1. all problems exist in the absence of a good conversation
  2. other people’s opinions of you are irrelevant
  3. anyone who wants to stop your progress will be removed
  4. the solution is always to secure your cash flow
  5. you must make sales
  6. focus and simplify
  7. activity is the key
  8. ideas are a dime a dozen – sales pay the bills
  9. efficient is doing it right, effective is doing the right thing right
  10. it pays to get up earlier
  11. stay fit and organised, neat and tidy
  12. surround yourself with winners
  13. wisdom enters through the wound

You are never alone – call me.
I am never too busy – call me.
Everything is possible – call me.
You have a bigger future – call me.
Call me.
Its what I do.
