There’s a lot of difference between a small and informal trade business, and a structured and systematized one.

I’m Jon, from Small Fish Business Coaching and my coaching program helps people take their business from small and informal to bigger and structured and systematized, and of course, more profitable and more secure as well. And I want to make a point that I first read about it when I read  Seth Godin, he’s one of those business writers that people like me like to read, and he pointed out the small kind of works, and the big kind of works, and then in between is a bit sh*t.

Let me explain. When you’re small, there’s only a few of you, overheads are very low, you probably work from home, you can all talk to each other all the time, systems aren’t as necessary because you’re all there, helping each other out. It’s all in your head, ‘there’s enough’. You can cope, you can manage the workload and the stress load, and the number of things you need to think about.

When you’re big, you’ve got people in place and systems in place. You’ve probably heard me talk about the framework and the machines:

So when that’s in place, it works again. It’s lovely.

In between, when those machines aren’t quite built, but it’s too big, and there’s too much going on for you to be holding it all in your head, it’s a bit hard to work. So, that transition from small to big goes through a difficult patch at the period of stress and work and pressure when you really need to push on through to the beautiful other side and it’s hard work.

And that’s my job as a coach to help you push through, to help you maintain that momentum, to show you the path so that it’s less hard than it might be on your own, so that perhaps you do it quicker than you might on your own.

I think that’s my job to help you do it quicker, to help you see the way, and to help you not give up when it’s a bit tough and it feels a bit hard, and it might be easy to go back to being small or  give up on the dream of building a business you want.

Do you want me to help you with that?

I hope you do. You know what to do.
