Business Coaching

Working with an experienced financial business coach is crucial for a small business owner. They can help you understand the basics of your finances and how to create healthy money habits that can lead to your business’ growth.

Focus on Core Business

It can be difficult for small business owners to handle their own finances when they’re managing different things at once. Running a small business demands time, effort, and energy so it’s challenging for an owner to be on top of everything.

New small business owners are often thrust into handling a business without anyone to teach them the ropes. And while experience can be a great teacher, making mistakes or resorting to the trial-and-error method can be risky for a business, especially when it comes to finances.

This is why many small business owners encounter common financial problems such as inconsistent cash flow, mishandled taxes, lack of capital and emergency expenditures, and overspending their budget. Encountering one of these can already be a major stumble for your business, but when it all piles up it can cause serious problems.

With the help of a business coach, you can overcome these challenges and allow them to help you understand how your finances work and teach you how to make smarter and more strategic financial decisions.

Why Use a Business Coach?

Unlike a financial advisor (i.e. someone who manages and invests your assets) or a financial planner (i.e. someone who offers investment opportunities or insurance products), a financial business coach focuses on a business owner’s fundamental financial issues and habits that are influenced by emotional or behavioural components.

They then create plans to help a business owner improve their attitude, habits, and decision-making skills when it comes to their finances.

Achieve Business Goals

Just like a life coach can help someone find fulfillment and improve their daily life, a financial business coach can help you achieve your business goals by teaching you money management skills and helping you develop a better attitude about your finances.

Improve Accountability

Working with an advisor also helps hold you accountable. Business can be very lonely but with an advisor, business owners can be more cognisant of what they do and have the help they need.

Build Financial Knowledge

They educate you and build your financial knowledge (such as tax obligations and legal requirements) so that you’re better prepared to handle that aspect of your business. They also recommend strategies to improve your financial processes so that it runs more efficiently.

  • Understand and articulate your spending habits
  • Identify underlying financial issues indicated in your spending habits
  • Outline a financial plan
  • Understand the emotional components of dealing with money
  • Create strategies to achieve your financial goals

Identify and Address Weaknesses

A financial business coach can help you recognise your own weaknesses when it comes to money matters and develop step-by-step processes so you have a wiser and more confident approach towards your finances.

Our Process

Our team consists of experienced financial problem solvers, making them the ideal partner to encourage and support you in your journey. We take the time to understand your business and your financial goals because we want to see you grow and prosper.

We are also incredibly multi-disciplined. We have Chief Financial Officer (CFO) training and experienced, qualified accountants all over the world, and training in Natural Language Processing (NLP).

Initial Conversation

We conduct an initial conversation with you. We ask questions to better understand you, your business, and the pain points that you are experiencing.

Formal Meeting

We have a formal meeting with you once you’re comfortable with us and perform an audit of your current financial practices and position by looking at profits and losses, balance sheets, and financial projections. We ask about any insights you may have on your cash flow.

Designing a Solution

We create a workable solution based on our review and walk you through our proposal so you understand what you’re investing in.

Achieve Your Goals

We help you achieve your goals by creating the space for growth. When you’re not stressed about your accounting, you have more time to focus on growing your business.


We also provide tax planning and tax advisory to support your cash flow. And we pay close attention to how tax law constantly changes (though we know this isn’t the case for most business owners), so we’re excited to help you optimise your tax position and provide you the tax relief you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

To get started, it’s as easy as saying hey!

We’ll get in touch and ask you a few questions to better understand you, and to see whether we’re a good fit. We’re interested in working with those who want to build a long term partnership and not just a tax outcome.

From there, we’ll need access to some data or reports for us to put together our proposal.

Our Proposal meeting is more than ‘here it is, have a think about it and get back to us’. We provide you with a review of the story in your numbers, highlighting anything that needs to be addressed, so whether you work with us or not, you know the true story that your business is telling you.

Our Proposals are all sent for electronic signature, and once accepted you move to our onboarding meeting, where you get to meet the key players in the team who are there to support you.

Once that is done, we get stuck into the work. Operating behind the scenes, but only ever a phone, SMS, Facebook / WhatsApp / Instagram, or email away.

The best part is, depending on how ready you are, we can usually do this process within 2 weeks.

Permission to be blunt — how frequently you hear from us is dictated by how much you’re willing to pay. We’re not trying to be rude about it, but it’s plain and simple. We value our time and our knowledge, and if you want smart advice, you’ve got to have skin in the game.

But, we’re always available via phone, SMS, Facebook / WhatsApp / Instagram, or email, and we’re regularly sending out communications and invitations to events.

We’re certain we are, otherwise why would you be on our page reading this right now?

In truth, you don’t until you give us a go. Every new beginning starts with a single step.

But if you need more convincing, we can send you through testimonials and client references.

A few things, really:

  • We’ve scaled our own business, so we know what works.
  • We’ve been in the game for more than 20 years and have some of the sharpest accounting and tax brains you can find.
  • We’ve created our own framework for freedom.
  • We believe in only win/win situations — it’s in our best interest that you succeed.
  • Likewise, we know that you may be looking for an ‘accountant’ but what you really mean is a financial manager.

We’ve got packages from $200/month through to $2000+/month.

It’s hard to say until we start looking into your business, but what we can say is this:

  • You’ll never get a bill from us that you didn’t know about.
  • We don’t charge for phone calls and meetings, so you can ask us questions.
  • We put the power back to you, meaning until you agree to a fee, we won’t start the work.

Of course! Let us know, and we’ll give you a couple clients to speak with.

We’ve worked across multiple industries, and in reality, a business sells time or ‘stuff’ (products).

We understand the differences in both business models because we’ve worked across both business models.

In fact, we’re regularly cross implementing advice, meaning we implement product methodology into service businesses and vice versa, because sometimes the answers require you to think laterally.

We’re a tech-driven firm. Majority of your interaction with us will be via phone, email, zoom/MS Teams.

We’re a Xero Partner, and work predominantly in Xero, but have experience working across Quickbooks and MYOB.

All our lodgements are sent electronically for you to sign, and all the programs we use to run our business are cloud-based, meaning the team can work remotely across the globe (which they do).

For us, work is where the Wi-Fi is.

We work with clients across the country, and when we can, we try to get out there to our clients in different states. But if you’re in Sydney, there’s a good chance we’ll get to catch up for a coffee (or beer).
