Benchmarking - Business Diagnosis - Ezine - Research - Consulting Service



Whilst Growth Plan™ specialises in improving financial and non-financial returns for owner operated small businesses in general, the early years of Growth Plan’s development have been concentrated in the Financial Services industry.  As a result it has collected a large base of data with around 1,000 different Australian businesses providing their financial, client, management and lifestyle measurements to the Growth PlanTM database.


Over this time, Growth Plan™ has developed an impressive suite of tools to assist owner operated small businesses, some of which are specific for the financial services.

Growth Plan™ can compare your practice, or a group of practices, to similar businesses in the Growth PlanTM database.  Growth Plan™ will then provide a printed report with the Growth Plan™ benchmarks for key performance indicators.  Have you ever wondered what ratio similar businesses have for support staff to income producers, the number of active clients to support staff or the profit per owner workhour?  Growth Plan can provide these and many others.

Goal setting is poorly recognised as the extraordinarily powerful tool it is for creating positive change in your life.  It works on a host of different levels to get you where you want to go.  For the definitive information on goal setting you should visit www.goalsetting.biz.Go To Goal Setting


Goal setting improves decision making and avoids procrastination over what to do next.  Goal seekers are proactive and often astonished by the height they can set their goals and still achieve them.


As with all powerful tools, goals have to be handled with care and constant attention.  Goal setting is a process that requires time and revision.  You need to be sure that your goals are appropriate for your situation and that you will not be neglecting important aspects of your life.


The goals you really value are not always the ones that you easily identify and there are methods for identifying these goals.  To obtain the full benefit from goal setting visit www.goalsetting.biz Go To Goal Setting

Working Less


There can be many reasons why you may want to work less in a particular business.  You might want to fee up time to explore another opportunity or to spend more time with your family or to follow your passions.  Or maybe you don’t enjoy the work and wish to escape or you are in the Activity Trap and need some help to get out of it.  If any of these is a description of you, visit the Growth Plan Working Less pages Work Less


Working less doesn't require you to earn less.  The Growth Plan™ process helps your business become more effective.  It can assist you to: use up spare capacity; enable tasks to be performed by less skilled, lower paid, staff; increase staff motivation by delegating authority; and create more responsiveness to income generating opportunities.  These efficiencies can provide for your lower hours.
