Our unique Ivy League process is a time-tested way to achieve your business goals.
We not only assist in helping you achieve success, but help you identify your core strengths and your value proposition, but we also identify any barriers to success.
To reach your full business potential, you must be able to identify things you do well and things that you might never have considered, which trust us, happens with almost every business owner.
One of the questions we get asked frequently is, “If I don’t work on my business for a day, a week or a month will it still generate an income?” The answer is “probably not”. Your business needs to follow a plan or strategy that is always evolving and if you don’t have one, or don’t make the time to implement it, then you will never reach the pinnacle of success.
Think of it this way. If you’re a marathon athlete, the running industry will help you make decisions on what shoes are best for you, they will also ensure your training stopwatch is the most suitable and that your running apparel allows for optimal movement.
But having the right tools doesn’t guarantee first-place.
You also need to know how to move efficiently and what steps to take to elevate your performance, such as running enough distance on the road, doing enough speed work, strength work etc.
That is what we do for mortgage professionals. We act as your coaches, your mentors, and help guide your business with the right strategies, processes and programs. Helping you achieve success by optimizing your natural strengths and to ‘build muscle’ in areas that might need improvement. We work with individuals or companies to improve their efficacy and profitability, so that you can be at the head of the pack.
And like a physical training regimen, our process has several steps:
From Stigma to Strength
1 It’s not always easy to allow someone from outside your business to assess how you run it. But, in order to identify all the areas that need work, it takes a mind-shift from viewing your weaker spots or business problems as a stigma to addressing and acknowledging them as challenges that can be solved or overcome. But first, we need to know the good and the bad in order to help. So the first step is to review your company’s business practices and conduct interviews with key team players/employees to develop a better understanding of its challenges, strengths, weaknesses as well as your processes.
Tackling Threats Together
2 After this thorough review, we make recommendations to company leadership regarding ways that the company can improve its operations. If you require third-party intervention to address a business crisis, or just need an outside perspective, an experienced consultant can provide crisis management services along with mediation that can get a company back on track. If you’re a new business, you may have the knowledge and ideas, but our expertise in start-ups can help you translate your ambitions into a business model that truly works. Or if your business just isn’t reaching its potential, we help formulate a plan of action to improve a company’s prospects. We customise all our strategies and measurable objectives to meet your specific needs.
Setting Solutions and Sticking By Them
3 Once we set targets or benchmarks for each team and/or individual, we monitor and track your progress, to make sure you’re reaching your objectives. We provide feedback, coaching, mentoring and support to make sure you stay on target. We can also help you with any new challenges that surface with specific knowledge gained over 3o years of business experience. We’ll keep you focused, motivated and targeted toward your goals.
Ensuring Continued Success!
4 Now that you have the right tools for success and a defined plan of action, you can review your progress. You can see how far you’ve come and the new capabilities you’ve learned along the way. But we don’t just want to set you up for success today, we want to ensure it continues into the future. We can help you establish follow-up goals that will make sure your success is sustainable. We can also provide reviews after new practices are implemented, to make sure they’re still working for you. Then, we can adjust them as needed, because businesses are constantly evolving and goals can change, so should your strategies.
