What Are The Foundations Of A Sustainable Successful & Scalable Business?

Michael Geber in his Emyth (Entrepreneurial Myth) discusses why so many businesses fail to achieve their true potential, even if they survive the staggering failure rate statistical odds and ultimately what you as a small business can do about it. All this unnecessary failure and consequential suffering it brings stem from lack of awareness of a few fundamentals namely... 
  1. Business is a System
  2. You can't manage People, you can only manage Processes 
  3. Businesses are just vehicles to serve everyone, owners, employees, suppliers, customers, community get what they want from it 
    • For owners, businesses should give more life, lifestyle, choice and abundance but unfortunately for many small businesses the opposite is true 
  4. Most businesses are started for all the wrong reasons and for this, they are already doomed before they are even born.. 

We aim to deliver much needed capital for SME’s and Property Developers.

At the heart of these business systems is a continuous improvement process of.. 
  • Innovation 
  • Orchestration & 
  • Quantification 

If you can't quantify or measure any aspect of your business, how else can you monitor and let alone improve that particular aspect of business or process. It is said, "What gets measured, Gets attention." 

The right "Entrepreneurial Perspective" and the "True Purpose of Any Business."
