There’s a lot to running a sustainable business. It’s not all funky coffee shop co-working and inspirational quotes. There’s actual business owner stuff you need to do, and things you need to put in place to keep your business growing as you want it to. And it’s not the kind of stuff you get taught in school, or even in a business degree!
What are we talking about? The strategic business planning that ensures your business is a true reflection of your values, your ideal clients, your skill set and your goals. The client experience that ensures your clients keep coming back and can’t stop talking about you. The core tech, processes and people that drive efficiency and effectiveness. The action planning that ensures you can deliver your objectives.
Not sure where to start? You’re in the right place. In the Sustainable Business School, we pride ourselves on providing you the knowledge, tools, and confidence to move your business forward. There are no blueprints, quick fixes, or secret sauces. We don’t promise to 10x your income or guarantee that you will reach £10k months. We provide proven methods, practices, and principles that you can apply to your business, in a way that works for you. You'll build solid foundations from which to grow.
You can learn at your own pace through our individual pre-recorded workshops and our signature programme, Breakthrough. Best of all, you'll be able to drop into a session with a Business Consultant to ensure you're applying what you're learning in the right way.
