After running my marketing business for 10 years, I felt like creating a website “HowNotToRunABusiness.com”. I knew, for my next business, I needed to go back to basics and learn from the experts. Verne Harnish certainly knows about setting up and growing successful businesses. I’m thrilled to be part of the Scaling Up programme as we learn, step-by- step, how to grow our businesses.
As the owner and Managing Partner of two businesses the Scaling Up programme has really helped me focus on where my businesses are now and where I want to take them. The business tools provided, coaching and the peer networking have been of great value and are assisting me to Scale Up both of my businesses. I would highly recommend the Scaling Up programme to all business owners who want to take their business to the next level.
I was recently introduced to the Innermetrix Advanced Insights Profile by the team at Mike Hoff Consulting. This is a psychometric profiling tool that identifies what natural talents a person has, why they are motivated to use them and how they prefer to use them through their natural behavioural style. This unusual three dimensional insights have proved to be invaluable to my business.
I used it most recently while recruiting an Operation Manager. Having found a candidate that seemed most suited for the job, we asked the individual to take the on-line profile. The interpretation of the results showed that the candidates' attributes did not match those required for the job. Going ahead with the hire without this knowledge would have cost the company time, resources and revenue.
I have immense faith in what the Innermetrix Advanced Insights Profile can do and intend to continue using it in the future as part of our recruitment process.
The Scaling Up programme has been a game-changer for me! I’ve been running a micro-businesses for almost 5 years and whilst it’s a great concept I haven’t really understood how to maximize it’s potential. Alongside this I have started a new business and it’s been fantastic to learn these practices whilst actively making them the basis of my new business. By learning from the team at MHC (and the other members of the programme) I am now starting to implement actions to help me achieve the realistic goals I have set for myself. As a micro-business owner, I tackle most things by myself, but the Scaling Up programme has given me a room full of mentors and a solid sounding board for my ideas, my problems, my solutions.
MHC’s Scaling Up programme offers common sense advice backed up with critical accountability.
Much like a person trainer in the gym, putting in the effort with MHC has made an immediate return on my investment in a couple of weeks that would cover 4 year of the programmes membership.
For anyone looking to formulise process, go back to roots and take their business to the next level, I recommend the Scaling Up programme.
