Wish You Could Talk With Someone Who Has Been Where You Are With Your Business?
No business comes with a manual that tells us exactly what to do, how to do it, and when to do it, regardless of industry. Instead, we’re forced to learn as we go, brainstorming and strategizing, taking steps in faith, and hoping we’re making the right choices.
Of course, we all sometimes wish that we knew all the answers and secrets to having a successful business at the start. That’s why one of the most popular questions asked of entrepreneurs and business owners is “What do you wish someone had told you starting out?”
But that’s part of the power of having a mentor or business consultant or coach to discuss your business with. Having someone outside of your business who has the privileged experience of having been where you are and made it to the other side can open your eyes to things you might otherwise miss –both good and bad. And that’s what Chuck is here to do – to come alongside you and be your confidential sounding board as you travel on your path towards business success and financial freedom through coaching and consulting.
What do you wish someone had told you starting out?
Learn From Chuck’s Successes & Failures So You Can Leap Ahead
Chuck is certainly no different from you – he had to try new things, make mistakes, and learn as he went in business as well. But one great thing Chuck offers is experience. They say hindsight is 20/20 and Chuck’s been there. Now, he wants to use his experience and business lessons to guide other business owners and help them take steps in confidence, leaping over the obstacles that he faced early on.
Chuck has taken a side business that brought in $30,000 a year and turned it into an over $1 million a year enterprise, without losing his sanity or the things he values in life. He has over 40 years of experience running blue collar service businesses, and can help you fulfill your dream of going from the slave of your business to the CEO of your business.
Chuck will instruct and shadow you in your place of business and guide you in the correct way to operate as CEO, and follow up with regular coaching appointments, so you have support as you go along.
Some of the things we will go over with you:
Profit Pricing/job costing
Business Management Systems
Sometimes it just helps to have an outside view of your company. An outside view provides insight into the good, the bad, and the ugly, so you can focus on the strengths to build on and the weaknesses that need repair.
Each situation is unique and cookie-cutter answers don’t work. That’s why a comprehensive business analysis is so important. A comprehensive business analysis is methodically performed to assess all the ingredients that make your company what it is. By studying your organizational chart, warehouse/inventory, systems, financials, pricing formulas, marketing, social media, and operational departments, we can provide solutions that are tailor made for your goals.
Simply schedule an in-person on-site visit and get:
- A detailed customized report identifying your strengths, weaknesses, and ambitions.
- Direct measurable action points for you to follow and implement (in chronological order) to ensure you have a travel plan to reach your business destination.
- Follow up calls to make sure you agree to and understand the plan. This allows you to execute with 100% confidence. Additional calls will be scheduled to support your journey and monitor your progress.
It’s all to ensure you never feel lost or alone on this journey. Your success is our biggest accomplishment. Sound like a plan? Just reach out for a free convo to establish if we’re a good fit.
Mentoring & Coaching
Every great leader in sports, business, or military will tell you they needed to be mentored to be successful. A coach or mentor understands your challenges and goals and sees the entire field of battle – which makes them uniquely able to provide guidance on the ‘right play’ or strategic action to achieve success. The Roydhouse Effect is here to be that mentor, that coach. To provide insight, experience, and the understanding of your situation that you need – because we’ve already walked this path and taken the arrows.
We specialize in financial management, job pricing and costing for profit, SOPs, and general business organization. Being in command of your numbers and systems reduces chaos and creates financial security for you and your team, which translates to a better, more pleasant work environment everyone wants to participate in.
Profit Through Correct Job Costing
One of the biggest challenges for business owners is figuring out how to charge for goods and services. Most service business owners started as techs and have not been exposed to (or had the time to understand) how to correctly account for all costs in running a business.
A lot of us start by charging a little less than the established competitor. Well, guess what? The competition is probably not charging enough, and you are charging even less. The only difference between the two of you is that you will go bankrupt first. It doesn’t have to be this way.
We can establish correct pricing through financial theory, controls, and real world tried-and-true ‘proofing’ that will make your company profitable.
Incorrect pricing is a slow dance with death. You owe it to yourself, your family, and your employees to have a profitable company that provides stability, security, and financial freedom for all involved. We have the tools to make this happen for you. And trust us, deciding to create the secret profit sauce for your company will be the best decision you will ever make.
Service companies survive and thrive on the sale of goods and services a client needs or requires. But selling is an artform developed using various tools – it’s not something you’re born with. We can teach your technicians to identify the customers’ needs and provide the best solution. When this transfer of goods or service happens correctly, everyone wins, and you create a happy customer and tech – which leads to increased profits.
Sales training is an investment into your team so you can be successful in meeting the needs of your customers while achieving a fair profit. Our step-by-step methodology will teach your sales force how to build trust and credibility while enhancing their skills and empowering them to close more jobs. A win/win.
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are your specific documented guidelines describing all the activities required to complete each job function. Having SOPs ensures consistent and correct completion of the assignment in the most efficient manner.
Lets face it, we all want to establish these important functions, but there never seems to be time to devote to this — and you’re probably not sure where to start. After spending 40 years in the home service industry, Fire Department, and Boy Scouts of America, I understand the importance of and the benefits and victory provided by having SOPS for your company. I can help you get these important procedures documented.
There are many ways to exit your business, but everyone’s goals are different. Retirement is not the only exit. Some build companies and sell in order to move on to a different goal or dream. That’s why planning for your departure is so crucial. Of course, most of us don’t give much thought to it until we’re close to retirement or a change event occurs – and both are typically too late in the game to achieve a really good outcome.
Having sold previous businesses (most recently our home service business) provides us with the insight on how to plan and accomplish this transition. We know what to do and what not to do. Having systems, organization, and financial control enables you to leave on your own rewarding terms, so you can turn the page to the next chapter. Let us help, so you’ll be prepared for the exit when it’s time.
