I’m Philip Williams.
My dad was a serial small business owner. That’s where I got my first taste for how to run a business.
I learned a lot at my parent’s dinner table every night, and I took that and became a 3-time Inc5000 CEO outside the family business.
These days I help other small business owners grow their businesses and I want to help you build a better business too.
Build Business Knowledge
“To Launch a business means successfully solving problems. Solving problems means listening.”Richard Branson
Build a Better Team
“Hire the best person for the job, not the best person available.”Lee Cockerell
Build a Better Life
“Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, what do I want to do everyday for the rest of my life… do that.”Gary Vaynerchuk
A successful small business owner doesn’t own a job.
They own a business that backs what they do for their customers;
They own a business that has real cash left over after they pay the taxes;
They own a business that has a consistent growth strategy with the right people on the team;
And most importantly, they own a business that provides well for their family and the families of their employees.
Cash Flow Problems
Cash is King, Queen, Prince, and Joker. I’ll help you get this under control and keep it there.
Grow Your Business
Building a business requires that you balance many pieces at the same time. I’ll show you how.
Leadership and Management
Managing and Leading aren’t the same thing. I can help you move from Manager to Leader.
Owning a business
Sometimes owning and leading a business can feel like being an island castaway; as if you’re the only one who see’s the growth strategy and has to execute it all…
You don’t need to travel this road alone, in fact you shouldn’t. You’re not the first business owner to experience your problems and you won’t be the last…
You can help yourself through the learning curve much faster if you’re tapped into someone who’s seen your issues before and successfully pushed through them.
“If you can’t embrace failure;
or the possibility of failure;
or the tremendous fear of failure,
you can’t be wildly successful.”
A small business coach helps you with tools to grow your business and helps you develop sound strategies to not only deal with the problems small business owners face, but to help you see around the corner just a little bit.
Every small business is different; you know this. You need a business coach who understands it too. Your business has unique challenges and opportunities and you can get through the learning curve faster when you have a small business coach who’s seen many different situations. You can draw on their experiences.
Who will benefit from small business coaching?
- Small companies executing a fast growth strategy
- Small companies looking to innovate and manage change
- Small business founders who need improved skills to manage their growing businesses
- Entrepreneurs who aren’t sure they’ve hired the right team
- Small businesses with limited financial resources
Philip takes great pride and receives much joy from coaching business owners and sharing business coaching tips. He decided to become a business coach after several years of being asked for small business guidance from friends and even business owners he’d meet at conferences who were looking for business coaching tips. Seeing owners grow their businesses is very gratifying work.
“Most problems just go away if you wait long enough. It might look like I’m standing motionless, but I’m actively waiting for our problems to go away. I don’t know why this works but it does.”Dilbert
This is the real key to your success. Your business will only grow as much as your team’s ability to grow.
Create a solid strategy and then tell everyone in your business every detail. If you don’t, no-one will know what they’re doing.
Why? Why are you putting in all this effort? What’s it all for? Without a Driving Vision, yours is just another company.
