Invest one day of your time per month and get guaranteed results

The Business Growth Programme has been proven to work and that is why the Academy guarantees results. Everyone on the programme is seeking the same outcome - increased profits and better cashflow. Every business has hidden profits, but it’s easy to get lost in the everyday running tasks and not stop to look at how you can release them.

"Financially Enlightened!"

We have only been confident to grow the business as we have, due to being financially enlightened; both through our monthly meetings with Jo, and through how she has set our finance team up to manage the cashflow so efficiently.  Every team within our company knows the numbers that drive their success and report on them every month. Companies that are ‘in the dark’ financially are playing Russian Roulette if they expand; they cannot know what to expect.
