Business Consulting and Coaching Services Australia
Why Many Small Business Owners Struggle to Achieve Their Goals - and What to Do About It.
Welcome! I'm Ian Crates
We help entrepreneurs throughout Australia to transform their business, so it generates a growing and reliable income, even when they’re on holiday. If your business is working well, it should provide you with the financial rewards you want and plenty of time to enjoy life.
We start with a business review to discuss your goals and to agree a road map for the way forward: a step-by-step plan to help you build the business you’ve always wanted.
Everyone is different, but here are some of the goals you might be seeking:
A greater feeling of control
Free up more time
More relaxed, less stressed
Better time management skills
Increased sale value of the business
Fixing operational issues hampering your progress
For the past 25 years, I’ve owned, operated, bought, and sold several businesses in both New Zealand and Australia, and I’ve used my skills and experience to help other business owners grow their businesses.
"Ian from Terrafirma was excellent. He took the time to understand my business and gave me a 90-day tailored action plan to get the ball rolling on our business growth."
(Marc Bristrowe, Pedwar Ltd)
"Great company, my son Scaffolding company has received some terrific advice from them. Ian Crates is a really easy guy to talk to and gives sound, solid and pragmatic advice"
(Martin Evans, Stronghold Scaffolding)
"I highly recommend speaking with Ian. His insight and experience are valuable and he's great at helping you realise the solutions you need for the challenges you face as well as holding you to account in driving your business forward."
I offer two distinct approaches: consulting and coaching. At our initial goal setting consultation, we can discuss which would suit you best."
This is the starting point. We discuss your vision for the business, and what you want out of it. Then we agree a roadmap: a plan that might take us down the consulting route or the coaching route.
Sometimes both options are relevant. You may want me to fix an urgent issue before mentoring you to improve your skills..... Find out more?
