I Can Help You Get Unstuck In 60 Minutes for Free

Business SOS (Second Opinion Session) By Phone, Skype Or Email
For Advice To Help Your Business

We’ll find more options to get you and your business unstuck and back to making more money or if you already have ideas, I can help you narrow them down to your best choices.

If you feel you’ve lost some control, we’ll look at ways for you to take back control over the direction of your business.

If you feel trapped in a vicious circle, where things keep getting worse, we’ll find ways for you to break free.

“Incredibly insightful, thanks.” Boris van Hemmen

It’s horrible feeling stuck, frustrated, overwhelmed or uncertain what to do when your business has started to struggle or if something looks as if it might be going wrong.

It doesn’t have to be like this. You can get unstuck but you have to take the first step by asking for help.

If you’re feeling stuck because:

  • your business is struggling financially, short of sales, profit and cash flow or
  • your business has lost direction or
  • you’re finding it tough to beat the competition without slashing your prices,

I can help you get unstuck in my free Business SOS consultation on the telephone, via Skype or email.

Seeing your business through fresh eyes and hearing an independent second opinion, can make a big difference to how you feel about your situation. You’ll get new insights and a clearer focus that will help to lift any feeling of overwhelm.

In your FREE 60 Minutes Business SOS advice session, we can focus on any of the following:

  • How to increase your sales and profit. We will target finding at least an extra £10,000 of profit and hopefully much more. You will need to share some key numbers in advance of our session so I can set up a model to calculate the estimated impact of the ideas.
  • Or we can talk about how to solve your own particular issue you face or any major decision you feel you need extra support and you’d appreciate an independent second opinion.

This is a practical business advice and coaching session to help you to move from where you are to where you want to be and I won’t hold back in any way. This isn’t a sales pitch about my services but I do aim to impress you. Perhaps you’ll ask about how you can work with me in the future but hopefully we’ll go a long way to solving your issue there and then.

I urge you to take this opportunity to get the help you need.

All you have to do is email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and ask for a Business SOS and tell me why you’re stuck.

A Quick Response

I understand that it can sometimes feel like a big step to acknowledge, even to yourself, that you have a problem and to then reach out for help.

I know you want help quickly. You don’t want to be left waiting, to see what happens.

My aim is to reply to your email within a few hours and to be talking to you within three working days, provided we can make the time in our diaries.

Why Listen To What I Have To Say

You wouldn’t want to see an unqualified doctor if you were seriously ill  and the similar principle has to apply for your business when it’s not in the best of health.

Let me explain why you should contact me about your business when it is stuck or struggling.

My core skills are in marketing, business strategy and finance with an emphasis on improving your profit and cash flow.

I’m a qualified Chartered Accountant, I have an MBA (master of business administration degree) and I am a Certified Guerrilla Marketing Coach. I have more than 35 years business experience including 20 years as a self employed business consultant, coach and advisor.

You can rely on my expertise as I continue to work hard to keep my skills up-to-date, as shown by reading and reviewing 353 business books so far.

I call my approach “the heart of a marketer and the mind of a finance director” as it helps you to know:

  • What you have to change and
  • How to change it..

If you want to know more about me, please see my LinkedIn Profile which has my full work related history. You’ll see that I have plenty of endorsements for strategy and marketing.

I’ve worked with clients in manufacturing, distribution, professional services, general services and retail. These days, I focus on helping entrepreneurs and business owners with businesses ranging from the “one man band” (just like me) to well established businesses with 50 or so employees.

You don’t have to stay stuck. Take action right now.

Email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and tell me why you feel stuck and a little about your business or call me on 0121 55404057 to arrange an appointment. Emailing is best because it helps to avoid telephone tag and I much prefer time to prepare for our call so I can give you my best ideas.

You risk nothing and have plenty to gain.

There is no obligation to buy – I am semi-retired and I only work with a small number of clients. This Business SOS is my way of giving more business owners some much needed help that I can help through my paid services.

If we both believe there is plenty of opportunity for extra profit in your business, and we each decide we want to work together, then I guarantee a 500% return on your investment. I also believe that I should be paid from the extra money you make and not before.

If you’d like to know more, please read FAQS About My Services.

I have limited capacity for these sessions so I urge you to take this opportunity to reserve your session. The sooner you ask for help, the quicker you’ll get unstuck.

Other Options To Get My Help

If you’d prefer to start with a shorter “getting to know you” chat before deciding if you want the free Business SOS, that’s fine too. Again, email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and tell me you’d like a chat before the Business SOS. This means I won’t do as much preparation but I’d still to like to know what your business does and your website address, if you have one. It will only take a couple of minutes and I think you’ll feel better when you’ve taken this small action to get yourself unstuck.

Another option is that we can do the entire Business SOS by email if it’s hard for you to arrange a time to talk. Just be aware that I’m likely to ask more detailed questions up front before I start giving you my ideas because I can’t clarify if ideas are relevant when I’m not talking to you. Again email me at paul@plancs.co.uk and make it clear you’d like the email version of the Business SOS.

I don’t want anything to get in the way of you getting the help you need and I know some people are a bit uncertain of taking advantage of a free consultation. If you feel like that, then I suggest you take the option of the “getting to know you” chat and, if you’re still worried about a free session after that, you can pay a discounted rate for the first consultation, knowing that you’re giving value to get value. Just promise that you’ll only pay if you’re very satisfied with my advice and, if you go on to become a client, you agree to let me knock off the cost of this first session from my project fees.

I also recommend you download and read my free report, The Six Steps Profit Formula. People tell me it’s very good.
