GUIDING THE 'BEST KEPT SECRETS' TO #1 IN THEIR MARKET

Trent Butler is a Chartered Accountant who acts as a Business Coach, Growth Advisor and Marketing Strategist to growth-minded professional service business owners.

We'll help you increase your profits, implement systems to improve operations and build a team that can operate without you - giving you the money and freedom to live the life you want.

Just a few of the 'best kept secrets' we've worked with:

"I was attracted to Trent's clarity of what could be achieved, his process driven approach to achieving objectives, coupled with his knowledge and experience. It's been absolute pleasure working with Trent and his team. I am extremely pleased with the results...”

The Truth Is You Have A Lot On Your Plate When It Comes To Being #1 In Your Market...

You Might Be Struggling With:

Identifying & attracting the right type of higher-value client

- Past efforts have attracted the wrong type of client.

- Prospects just want to know 'price' and don't seem to care about anything else.

- Leads seem to take forever to sign-up and become a client.

You just want to attract higher-value clients who value your expertise and expect to pay a fair premium to work with you.

Monitoring cash flow & tracking return on investment

- You’re unsure what metrics to be tracking.

- You’re not clear on what benchmarks to aim for.

- You're not sure if your marketing is making or losing money.

You just want to understand dollars-in vs dollars-out and whether or not it's all worth it.

Developing process and people to handle the next growth phase

- Growth is starting to cause other operational challenges.

- Getting the right people in the right seats has become easier said than done.

- The team can never quite seem to follow process or consistently achieve what is expected.

- You're getting pulled in a hundred different directions and clients are beginning to notice.

You just want to get everyone on the same page and following processes that actually work and scale.

Figuring out what to do and what not to do next from a marketing and business development standpoint

- Exactly who is our ideal client and how do we get more of them?

- Just what is our point of difference (or do we even have one)?

- Do people see us as a commodity service provider?

- What 'tactics' would work best specifically for our firm and stage of business?

- Where should we be spending our marketing dollars and efforts?

You just want to know what you should be doing and why.

Aligning the leadership team on strategy, planning and execution

- The leadership team is losing sight of the bigger picture (core mission, vision and values).

- Key team members just can't seem to agree on what should be done next, how and why.

- Problems use to be handled quickly but now take weeks/months to resolve.

- Important but not urgent activities are just not getting done.

You just want everyone in the business aligned and beating to the same drum.
