Work ON Your Business Rather Than IN Your Business

Begin by stopping. The day-to-day challenges IN your business can take control of your business if you let them. By stepping away from the day-to-day to join others in working ON your business, you are given the opportunity to reboot, retool, and reenergize.

GrowthCLUB prepares you for coming quarter by equipping you with learnings for opening your mind and expanding your perspective, strategies for growing yourself and your business, tools for staying motivated and in control, and a plan of action for driving results.

During this high energy day, you will ...
  • Create a 90-day plan
  • Take control and get organized
  • Learn proven profit strategies
  • Network with other business owners
A few of the topics covered at GrowthCLUB include ...
  • Introduction to Stories & Anti-stories
  • A review of your specific business
  • A thorough situational analysis
  • A detailed gap analysis
  • Building your plan
After attending GrowthCLUB, participants walk away with ...
  • Energy, focus and vision for business for the next 90 days
  • A ready-to-implement plan of action for your business 
  • More effective leadership and decision-making skills
What is GrowthCLUB?

GrowthCLUB is your chance to step out of the business and get focused. We'll work with you to map out a winning game plan for the next 90 days. 

With proven strategies and expert training, you will learn strategies to increase profits, work fewer hours and build winning teams. Then, you can adapt & adopt to get them working for you.  You will walk away with an easy week by week action plan that will show you exactly what to do and when.

Make your next 90 days in business your best ever!

Rick and Dennis will be working with you on the following topics:

Build Your 90-Day Plan – Yes you will ACTUALLY walk away with a plan (ON PAPER!) that we will coach you through in an "over the shoulder" style environment.  It will be your MAP to success for the next 3 months specifically tailored to your business.

Learn How To Execute – Planning is great but you have to know how to execute.  We will work with your specific situation to help you with the execution.

Get Energy and Focus – When you leave the workshop, you WILL have more energy and focus on what you need to do to grow your business.  There's no Ifs, Ands or Buts about it!

Produce Results – When you have a plan and you know how to execute, your life becomes MUCH easier.  You will find that you will see results quickly when you have these pieces in place.

Who will get the most from coming to this event?
  • You want to grow your company. 
  • You appreciate and understand that an outside perspective will help.  
  • You are honest with yourself and others. 
  • You want to have more fun. 
  • You want more free time.  
  • You want to make a lot more money. 
  • You know that your business is supposed to provide you with a lifestyle, not become your life.

Rick Phelps

Prior to becoming a Business Coach Rick was a successful business process improvement consultant and expert. That career took him on a journey around the world – from working with an international NGO to improve its rural home building program in East Africa, to driving process improvement at a multinational company’s arctic diamond mine, to helping a local entrepreneur’s family cabinet and counter top manufacturing business become massively profitable.

Along this journey Rick learned that the difference between a business becoming a huge success or merely surviving is a matter of the application of a limited set of knowledge. This is true whether that business is part of a large multinational corporation, or a family scratching out a subsistence living from their dirt plot. Rick’s passion is sharing that knowledge and coaching its application. His joy is watching as business owners and families, managers and workers, thrive as a result.

Which missing parts of that ‘set of knowledge’ are causing you to THINK about your business in a way that is holding you and your business back? 

• Profits as a PERCENTAGE versus a RATE … 

• Marketing as an EXPENSE versus an INVESTMENT … 

• Sales as SELLING versus TEACHING … 

• Systems STIFLE creativity versus ENABLE creativity… 

• Team members hired for their SKILLS versus their CULTURAL FIT … 

• Ownership means spending most of your time working IN the business versus ON the business…

Is This You?...

1.  Are you working longer hours than you want to or ever thought you would be? 

2.  Do you want to regain the vision and dream that led you to forming your own business in the first place? 

3.  What would you do to regain control of your life and spend more time with family and friends? 

It probably is you or else you wouldn't be reading this.  My name is Dennis and I am a certified Business Coach with ActionCOACH, the World’s #1 Business Coaching Franchise (Entrepreneur Magazine, Jan. 2004 & 2005). 

As your coach, I will be working with you in five key areas. The emphasis on each area depends on your needs, the type of business you have, and your goals. The key areas are: 

  • Sales
  • Marketing and Advertising
  • Team Building and Recruitment
  • Systems and Business Development 
  • Customer Service. 

My goal is to help small business owners, such as yourself, spend less time working in your business and more time working on your business. In the end, you’ll be spending less total time working and will be making more money. I’d also like to help you put the FUN back in your business and your life. 

As a small business owner myself, I know what it is like to worry about the day-to-day survival of the business and making the amount of money needed to run my business and personal life. I understand what it’s like to put in long hours and wonder what happened to the dreams and vision I had for my life and future.

I am here to help you change all of that. We will work together to redefine your dreams and vision, and then we will put into place the necessary systems, strategies, and tactics that will allow you to turn your business venture into a thriving, successful one.

We define a successful business as: a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you. As your Business Coach, I will function as an unreasonable friend who tells it like it is and keeps you working on the path toward your dreams.
