Affordable business advice and information that makes a difference.

If you are reading this we suspect you are finding running a small business is more difficult that you thought, no surprises for us there!  It is an entirely new profession in addition to the profession you had that took you in to business in the first place isn’t it?

We have lived and breathed our own small business for years and in that past 15 years we have planned, implemented, coached and mentored over 60 businesses and organisations.

We know you need

  • Clear practical information that can be implemented straight away
  • Written and presented by business owners for business owners
  • Self paced delivery
  • Available online 24/7

What will you learn with skilled at business?

Basically everything about small business for established business, as far as someone other than yourself can take you.

We have been in business for a combined 50 years, we have mentored, planned implemented and trouble shot over 60 businesses. We have always focussed on what works, not what theory says will work, after all it is a real world out there.

Just as important as the technicalities and legalities of running a business it is the owner who profoundly affects the operations of a business. You will find we spend time on why people fool themselves, toughening up, and how owner personalities affect the business.

Putting dreams into reality

For most people going in to business is about making their dreams come true.  Self determination, be their own boss, to be financially independent, express ideas, creativity, experience and expertise. Sound familiar?

However, the reality is that running a business is a separate profession in addition to the trade/profession that you are basing your business on.

  • You will learn this profession if you are to survive
  • You will learn this profession well if you are to flourish
  • You will make mistakes
  • You will learn from these mistakes

Don’t despair. Einstein once said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

Skilled at Business is passing on the real world experience that has been gained the hard way, through real world experience.
