Do you feel a lump

in your throat thinking about that dreadful day …

Even if I’ve got enough saved up, if I get really sick or have an accident everything will fall apart! My business is not worth anything because it’s all about me. And if I’m not working, it’s not making money.

“I will lose everything I’ve slaved away to build over the last 5 years! How will I face my wife when we lose the house – she was the one that wanted me to get a job in the first place…”

Problem in Business - employee
Business Owner on Vacation cover

Wouldn’t it be nice

to be able to breathe easy?

Knowing that there’s always enough money in the bank to pay all your bills BEFORE they’re due – even if you’re not there?

Knowing that you can go away on holidays when you feel like it and to places you’ve always dreamed you would visit one day?

Knowing that you have time to enjoy your family and children while they’re still young.. not when they’re all
grown up and have families of their own

Knowing that all your hard work has paid off when you go to sell your business and you’re able to charge 4, 5, 6 x its profit value because you’ve built an asset for your family’s future, not just a job.

One day very soon you can have the cash to spend on the right marketing and the right staff.
You will have a team whom you can trust to serve your customers and who respect you as a leader.
You will smile more, take deeper breaths and sleep more relaxed knowing that things are going to be all right.You will be able to afford that stunning white $4mil mansion with the view that you and your partner have been day-dreaming about for the last 5 years.And best of all, you’ll have the time and peace of mind to enjoy it with your family
Scaling a business is not easy…
But it’s very possible - if you know how

A scalable business is one that is able to grow freely, without being dependent on you personally for day-to-day operations. And scaling YOUR business is very likely possible. It may need a few tweaks but hey, that’s what we have to do everyday in business, isn’t it!

So even if you’re thinking:

“I tried spending money on advertising it’s either wasted completely or I get extra work that I can’t handle. And when I’ve put someone else on, they cost so much I ended up worse off after all!”

Scaling a business cover
Business owner sad cover

“I tried employing staff but they just suck up my time, I spent months training them up only to give up at the end because they were hopeless or I trained them so well, they went out on their own and stole my customers!”

“I tried putting up my price, but I just can’t convince people to spend more on my services because it’s a cut-throat market out there. It’s only ever about price! And I can barely make enough to cover my costs, let alone a staff member to help!”

“I tried cutting down my hours to spend time with my family but I just wasn’t’ making enough to put food on the table! I HAVE to work and if I stop, everything stops!”

So what to do?

A successful scalable business is a result of one simple equation:

(SCA + SSD) x SNP / CG = Successful Scalable Business

(don’t worry it’s not a complicated as it looks)

SCA is Scalable Client Acquisition, which means that you develop methods to reliably continue generating clients using a cost-effective system

SSD is Scalable Service Delivery, which means you have a known, repeatable system to deliver the service to each client at a low cost which allows for a good profit margin for the business

SNP is the Sustainable Net Profit for the business, which allows you to continue making that profit margin day-in-day-out. It takes into account costs like staff and overheads that grow as the business grows.

And CG is the Cashflow Gap, which is the period between the time you spend the cash necessary to make a sale to the time you receive payment for that sale, i.e. the time required for you to actually see your profit margin in the bank.

Successful Scalable Business image
Target - Transparent

What does all this mean?
It means that in order for your business to successfully scale, you need to:

  1. Work out affordable reliable ways to generate and convert customers – ideally ways that don’t rely on you personally
  2. Structure your product or delivery in ways that cost the least amount of money while keeping the customers happy – ideally ways that don’t rely on you personally
  3. Set up your costs and overheads in a way that ends up giving you a GOOD profit for your work, not just the minimum wage (or worse)
  4. Set up your cashflow in a way that it doesn’t get in the way of your growth. Some businesses have better cashflow systems than others.. And in almost all cases, things can be done to reduce the cashflow gap so your business can grow, instead of struggle.

So, why listen to me?

Good question!

If you’re ever going to get business advice from anyone, you’d want to make sure it’s from someone who has succeeded in business several times over, right?

Better still, you need to ask someone who as failed in business a few time too!

So, this is a little bit about me and what I’ve been up to over the last 35 years:

My name is Rick Chisholm.

When I started my first business as a DJ in Sydney I was full of energy and enthusiasm (like most of us in business!) and life looked good! I was making money, I was in demand and I was loving it!

What more could I ask for!

But soon enough, I came up against the 3 biggest obstacles that most sole operators and small business owners face:

Time   Money   People

Rick Chisholm - red name

I was trapped by my own business, working 100-hour weeks, living on breadcrumbs and had zero social life. In so many ways I was worse off than having a job.

But that was 35 years ago. And since then I’ve learnt a trick or two.

I worked out how to bridge that gap from lifetime-jail-term-business to scalable- saleable-real-business in all my 30+ businesses in the following 35 years. The direct sales revenue of my businesses has well exceeded $300million

Here are some of the larger businesses that I founded over the span of that period, all of which I eventually made scalable and either sold or am still running under management:

LSW logo           Lightsounds           Innovest SME           Innovest SME - eLearning

Chisholm Coaching          ABALL logo           Self Defence

My experience spans across many differ industries including Retail, Wholesale, Importing, Manufacturing, Installations, Hospitality, Franchising, Rental, e-commerce and Training. If there was anyone that has tried and tested small to medium business, it’s me!

I also have joint ventures in AI, an events company, an automation Tech company a legal firm and a Financial Advisor company.

A few years ago, my businesses were turning just under $20mil per year and were the market leaders in their niche. We had 67 staff at the time and things were progressing well.

And then, the GFC hit. Bricks and mortar retail was hit by online businesses and our importing was hit by eBay, Amazon, Alibaba and factories drop-shipping from China directly. Discretionary spending plummeted and the future of the businesses looked bleak. After a gruelling few years, we managed to pull our businesses back out of difficulty.

Not only did the businesses recover, we became significantly more profitable than we were before the GFC. Scoring a whopping $750k turnaround in profitability over a 4-year period, things finally looked up again. The dark circles under my eyes eventually weren’t as dark and my stress levels resembled normality (this stuff is not magic, I still am in business you know).

So there you have it. If there’s anyone out there who understands the struggles of business ups and downs, staff challenges, cashflow droughts and how to invent and re-invent your business, it would be me!

FAQ

Are you going to try and sell me something during this course?

Well of course! We give the maximum amount of content and value possible within the time that is allocated for the session. We will also let you know about the (ridiculously affordable) business education and acceleration programs that Innovest has to offer but we don’t do the hard sell on people. That’s always our promise!

So how will you know the quality we can offer? Nothing like some (almost) give-away education to give you a taste!

At the end of the two and a half days, you will have two options:

Option 1. Walk away…
Get the confidence and skills to execute on all of the advice we have shared

Option 2. Stick around…
And move further with us for even more actionable learning

Well, if you hate academics so much, why are you calling this a certificate? And is it accredited?

#1 we don’t hate academics, we LOVE them. We just don’t like it when they try to teach people about business when they haven’t done it themselves.
#2 Yes we are calling it a certification because we are leading a revolution! A revolution for business to be taught by business people. Our certificate is worth more than spending years in university trying to get an MBA. If nothing else, it’ll look good on the CV and people will listen up when they see what you’ve learnt and who taught you.

I’ve been in business for years. Sure I have problems, but what can you possibly teach me that I don’t already know, especially in just 2.5 days?

We don’t know what you know. And you don’t know what you don’t know, right? But if you’re having challenges, and you are if you still reading this, odds are we’ve been through similar challenges too. You can pin us down and ask us anything you like during the 2.5 days. The cost of the 2.5 days of training is close to half of an hour with a typical business or management consultant, or even a lawyer who will do what they can to steal your dream. If all you did was come along just to ask whatever questions you wanted to ask well then that’ll do it.

I’m just starting out, will this course teach me everything I need to know to run a business?

We will cram as much knowledge, value and strategy as we can humanly cram into those two and a half days. We will save you at least a few years and a few hundred thousand dollars on wasted experiments your part. But to be fair, be realistic, it will take a bit more than 16 hours for you to nail it in business. It’s a mystery why people run off to uni to do a Bachelor of Business and come out the other end and not even know half the business basics needed not to go broke. And how many years do they stick into that uni degree? Answer: 3 or 4.
Its hideous frankly. And for specialists, they come out great technicians, but do they now how to run a business? That’s the question. No, it does NOT take years and years to learn how to run a business, that’s a load of crap. You’re going to have to be prepared to work hard for your success though. That’s one of those things that we don’t have a magic bullet for. And, umm, yeah, these two and a half days will be tough work.

I’m only a start-up and can’t really afford to pay the cost of this course right now. Do you have any payment plans?

Hmm.. If it was a couple of thousand dollars, we’d totally understand. But for the value you’ll be receiving a couple of hundred dollars is crazy cheap. It’s less than what you’d spend on 2 coffees a day for a month. Find the $200 bucks, ok!

How do I know this is applicable to my business? I’m not in any of those industries that you guys have been in.

It’s applicable, and if its not ask for a refund. Richard Branson once said ‘If you can run one business well, you can run any business well’. We also believe that between the two of us we’ve had years of exposure across so many goods and services industries that it’s very likely we know enough about business to apply our experience it to yours. Oh, the list above is the summary, we have run many, many businesses in so many industries you will be surprised.

I’m still not sure. Do you have some guarantees I’ll get good value out of this program?

Yes we do. We will refund your $197 if you think it really wasn’t worth it or you didn’t learn something profound that you can’t honestly say:

  1. Will likely save your business one day
  2. You can’t implement in your business straight away and save thousands
If you think we're just messing with you just to rid you of your hard-earned cash.

Shortly after transitioning my part-time business to a full-time venture, I found myself needing to secure more regular, on-going business opportunities. I have worked with Rick and Tala for some time and found that their no-fuss approach to business resonated with me. They have helped me clarify my thoughts and begin to structure some robust business processes, delivering immediate results.

Rick’s guidance has been critical to the growth of my firm. I’ve had plenty of sports coaches, so working with a business coach made perfect sense to me

When I think about the interactions I’ve had with Rick, whether that be more recently or from more than 25 years ago, I’d have to say that Rick is determined, enthusiastic, driven, polished, prepared, well-drilled, hard working and dogmatic.

I have known Rick Chisholm for well over 25 years and have had the privilege of being his Insurance Broker in all that time. I have witnessed Rick, from very humble beginnings, create Multi Million Dollar Enterprises over the years, in a diverse range of Industries and in very short periods of time, through sheer hard work and a business savvy that has been the envy of his peers and competitors alike.
