The need for outside advisors.
People need outside advisors to share their thoughts, as traditional support has all but disappeared.
- Family units are disintegrating. We have seen fathers, mothers, grandparents, in-laws, uncles, cousins, all too busy elsewhere.
- Bank managers, the friendly ones, who would walk down the street and drop into seeing how you are getting along, don’t exist anymore.
- Accountants no longer spend an extra hour discussing business; they are too busy with government compliance and taxation issues.
- Good Business advisors, facilitators, and coaches are few and far between, particularly in regional, rural, and remote areas, so few advocates of new ideas and business development are advocates.
Advisors can help you to focus on what you want to do, and what is essential to your future as well as how you’re going to do it.
Why people don’t use outside advisors.
- Don’t understand- consultant, mentor, facilitator, coach, advisor, broker.
- They are satisfied with the status quo.
- No money.
- No time.
- I don’t know how to get the most out of them.
- Don’t take suggested action when they should.
- Not action orientated.
- No business plan or model to hang advice on.
- I don’t have direction and won’t put the time into it.
- They think they understand what needs to be done.
Outside advisors understand problems, frustrations, wants and needs.

Finding your strengths
Do you get the opportunity to do what you do best at doing every day? Far too many people don’t either understand or believe in the strengths they have. Chances are, you don’t, and all too often, our natural talents go untapped, and we are unable to focus on the things we like doing and are good at doing. Most people devote more time to fixing their problems than to develop their strengths.
More often than not an excellent practical advisors can act as a catalyst and change your whole outlook on your business and your lifestyle. Keep in mind that experienced advisors see many of the same problems and their solutions often. It means that they can spot the issues and deliver a solution very inexpensively.
Indeed, they are far less expensive than continuing problems and frustrations that keep causing your struggles.
