WHAT OUR CLIENTS THINK
Given the investment required, which seemed like a lot at the time, we felt we were going out on a limb with the difficult financial position we were in. Especially as the ideas seemed so far removed from what traditional accounting had taught us.
But after talking with Craig, reviewing the proposal, and familiarising ourselves with Profit First we believed it was the best path to take.
From the beginning we had the ongoing and committed support of Craig to assess, adapt, implement and manage our whole profit plan.
Our business has become truly profitable for the first time ever, and we make informed choices about our purchases, spending and overall operations, it’s a holistic approach.
We are now confident in seeing the future and planning and making changes to the business to see our goals be attained.
Our business has been able to effectively manage itself through the Covid 19 crisis and we have been stress free in ensuring the business, employees and clients have all been thought of.
The best thing is that this has opened up the time, space, financial freedom to plan for other new and exciting opportunities.
This is something all businesses should look at as it has completely changes so many aspect of our business in a positive way.
Recently I ask Craig to come and present to my clients on his Profit First teachings and area of expertise around Business Growth and Profits and what a valuable session it was.
Both myself and clients were so amazed on how easily Craig presented his knowledgeable information in bit size chunks which allowed my clients to implement his teachings straight away. The stories he told which aligned to his teachings made his points clear and concise and easy to understand.
Every client after the session gave me tremendous feedback around his presentation style, information he delivered and results they got from it… Highly recommend getting Craig in to talk to your own clients to add further value – many thanks once again.
I was unsure about how Profit First worked and whether my business was too small to benefit from the methodology.
The opportunity to work with Craig and Mints CD Consulting, who I met through networking, on a program especially for smaller scale businesses made it possible for me to get familiar with the methodology and to implement.
After implementing Profit First with a Profit Plan, I now have more visibility in my business and I can make financial decisions with ease. And have a plan for growth.
Previously I had no idea whether my business was going well or not for the stage of my business. I wasn’t sure what I could afford to help my business grow. I didn’t know how to forecast for things. I had been putting money away for tax/super but I had no idea if this was enough. I wasn’t sure what to do next to scale my business.
Finances are not my forte and I found them overwhelming and confusing. It is the part of running a business that I liked the least. But this is changing thanks to Craig and Profit First.
I would recommend Mints CD Consulting and Profit First to any small to medium business who is struggling with cashflow, feeling stressed when times get tough or just needs assistance making informed financial decisions because I have got so much value out of the program already and I now feel confident in all these areas.
I met Craig at a business networking group, and really loved his short presentation. I had used other business coaches before, and found them all very different.
Craig’s ‘Profit First’ model really was what got me interested. After using this for several months, I can actually see a huge financial benefit in allocating my profits and various expenses separately, which I had not really done effectively before. We also do regularly accountability calls as part of his program, which mean I am actually spending allocated time on my business, and would normally set aside these tasks when times get busy.
My client referrals and business income has definitely increased since I started using Craig’s services, and it does not look like slowing down anytime soon. He has changed my mindset around money and my time, even as a financial planner who gives clients advice on money every day.
I would recommend him to anyone looking to actually wanting more income from their business, and more clients.
I found myself in a situation where my business was successful and I had a great flow of clients. The problem was that cash flow was a constant issue and payment of quarterly BAS payments was always an issue.
The turning point was when I met Craig Minter, a Profit First Professional. He looked at my business and set up the Profit First method of dealing with the money in my business.
As a result I have the funds available to pay myself more, have Profit set aside and pay the bills.
The value I have received from Craig has been outstanding. My bank account is no longer a stress point in my business!
Craig looked at my vision and where I wanted to be big picture and opened my mind to other ways of marketing and systemised strategies. Doing so in a simple and straight forward way to break down the path to my goals. Business owners like me who are caught up in their day to day activities could really save time and money through engaging Mints CD Consulting to help grow their business.
The team was reflecting upon the dramatic changes we’ve made. Previously we double-handled work; used spreadsheets unnecessarily; under-utilised existing software….. We’ve completely transformed our processes. You keep asking for us to quantify the benefits to calculate the return on our investment. After reviewing just one of the changes, we went no further! Our improvements are priceless
After seeing Craig do a “Systems to Save Your Sanity” presentation I was keen to explore the many systems that make up the workshop for both my own knowledge but also to connect contacts who may need to work more efficiently.
The full day workshop reinforced the importance of a future vision for my business along with the associated planning, both short term and
gave a step by step processes to create each in a simple but effective way. It also highlighted how a CRM could be of great benefit to our business so will be exploring this one further.
I would thoroughly recommend this workshop to any small business owner, especially those who have only been in business for a short while.
When I first saw the workshop details I wasn’t quite sure of what it involved, but as I was most interested in setting up a CRM and improving management of my emails, I knew I’d get enough value from the day just from those 2 sessions alone so I signed up.
Not only did I get specific software and process solutions to those areas, I also learned some great new ways to manage cash flow and increase profits in my business. And to top it off the LiveWIRE morning looks like the perfect way to make each day super productive. Can’t wait to get started with that one tomorrow!
I really believe all small business owners will walk away with something that they can implement in their business straight away that will save them both time and money so I can’t recommend this workshop enough.
Being an accountant who understands the importance and value in quality systems and processes, I thought my business had a large number of good systems, CRM and job work flow tools in place. But the Transform Your Time & Profit workshop made me realise there were a number of areas that I can directly improve to make my day run more efficiently.
Between scheduling calendars and email management, this workshop has given me the ideas and motivation to look at how my day at work looks. Which will ultimately save me time and money.
This workshop is great at drawing attention to gaps or inefficiencies with systems small business owners already have in place. And gives them the power to improve the systems themselves. Book yourself in if you want to improve your systems!
After working with Craig, I can now see a clearly laid out path for my business and have great confidence in working with him moving forward. I highly recommend Mints CD Consulting to other small to medium sized businesses that are struggling to find time to plan ahead.
Every time I talk to you Craig, you just make me feel at ease. No pressure, no stress, you just make things simple and clear for me.
