In this series of 2 sessions, we will work with you individually or with your team to develop the strategic direction for your business over the next period of time (usually 1 year). Together we will develop specific goals and action plans for you to be successful.
Just Small Business Accountability Partnerships
The big question is who do you report to, who holds you to account for the progress you are making towards achieving your goals. As a business owner, you are often too busy to take an hour or two out to review your progress. Our accountability partnerships allow you to do this in a timely and affordable way, providing an ongoing support relationship guiding you towards your success.
This is is a partnership where we as your Just Small Business Strategic advisor meets with you just once a month to review your progress towards achieving your goals in each strategic area of your business. Your strategic advisor will provide support and guidance on how to expand on success or how to bring things back on track when they are not meeting the targets that you have set.
This is similar to Accountability 1 but you meet with your Strategic advisor weekly and you report on your progress on the activities of the previous week and proposed activities for the following week. Your Strategic advisor will also provide support and guidance on how to expand on success or how to bring things back on track when they are not meeting targets that you have set.

Principal, ONYX Online Law
Small business planning can be an overwhelming task for new entrepreneurs. Trying to clearly and simply document dreams and vague ideas was really hard for me. I found working with Just small Business surprisingly easy.
Keith Davidson helped me to focus on the key issues that will affect my profitability and identify clear priorities that will help me build a sustainable business, faster. I now have bit sized, achievable goals and a list of priorities. I have a useful plan that I can come back to every couple of weeks and actually measure my results.
The workshop was fun and easy and made me wonder why Ive always found the business planning process so difficult in the past. Thanks Keith!
Small Business Owner, HR Call Centre
"Business planning is something that I have done before but without any guidance or objective input from someone who knows the pitfalls and challenges.
Its that nagging thing that you know but avoid - keep on doing it the same way but expect a different result. So when Keith invited me to a work shop for strategic planning I knew it was my opportunity to get an objective contribution to the process.
I am very grateful to Keith for not only providing that contribution and steering my thoughts and planning in the right direction but pushing me outside the comfort zone to stretch my thinking. Working with Keith has given me a great deal of clarity about the what, why and with whom of my business and some great ideas to use that will make it easy to implement."
