Our teachings are not targeted at one type - rather, for those with 5 to 30 team members.
We focus on the pain most small businesses go through during growth.
From our collective 60+ years experience, we have identified where that pain comes from:
- Having an unclear vision
- A confusing or no strategy
- The wrong people
- A lack of performance measurements
- The team unaligned with the strategy
- Shit management
- No or poor communication
- Reliance on yourself
- No systems and processes
- Poor communication with little or no accountability across the team
A plan without actions is a DREAM.
Actions without a plan is a NIGHTMARE!
Save time, money and energy in growing your business by learning from the mistakes of other business owners, and the experience of our team.
Our content and teachings come from decades of authentic, lived small business experience.

Troy helped us prepare for our first capital raise, developing a comprehensive Financial Model and Investor Memorandum.
He's a great coach who is not afraid to roll up his sleeves, and is very happy to share his wisdom and network.
His commitment is infectious, you can’t help but be inspired by it. Above all, he is generous and blunt (in a positive way).
Yuki Saito, Co-founder
Michael has been a fantastic adviser for our business. The combination of accounting services, business strategy, and forward planning has been invaluable.
As the owner of a growing small business, I found myself too busy working in the business and not on it.
Michael has helped me step outside of the day-to-day business and set some targets, guided by a strategy on all aspects of the business from staffing to marketing.
John Paul Cumming, Founder
Troy was on the investor panel at my very first "shark tank" experience for my new startup ecommerce business.
He was the one investor / mentor that recognised the opportunity that we saw. Fortunately, Troy ended up mentoring me through that startup journey.
In 2015, less than three years after our start, we were acquired by a publicly listed American company.
Troy’s experience taught me valuable lessons about efficiency, management, strategy and focus. All these were major challenges for our business as it experienced super fast year-on-year growth of over 700%.
