Arguably the most difficult aspect of any business is deciding to just go for it. In the beginning there are so many unknowns.
Allan has helped many companies though this difficult process of getting enough information and motivation to take the leap.
Most businesses have a “honeymoon phase” where the partners and investors are very excited and motivation is at an all-time high.
After a while, the initial excitement wears off and all that remains is the grind.
Allan helps businesses through this phase by focusing on strategic growth and operational efficiency .
Scaling a company at significant pace can cause unique issues. Some issues include low cash reserves, operational inefficiencies and challenges with personnel.
Allan helps companies through the growth process by alerting leaders to potential hazards before they occur and motivating through growing pains. Because Allan has led companies through various growth phases, he is able to create a vision for others so they can see the results that growth produces long before they exist.
