Want Your Small Professional Service Business to Become a "Big Fish"? You No Longer Need to Choose among Earning More, Working Less, Doing Good

Share Article

Until now, owners of small professional service businesses typically thought they needed to choose between a balanced business bank account and a balanced life. They figured they must decide between the stereotypes of a "hippie" company that saves the world or a "money-grubbing" one that is financially viable. Working toward goals of becoming big fish who are famous in their fields often went by the wayside. Whether you are searching to break $100K or $1 million a year, award-winning business and marketing strategies author and professional speaker Kelly O’Neil of UpLevel Strategies offers recommendations on ways small businesses can start the process. Their new year-long Business Mastery Platinum Program™ offers integrated business and marketing training, coaching, support and resources to make it possible (visit http://www.uplevelstrategies.com/programs_sub02.asp). Training with coaching is four times more effective than coaching alone, according to Public Personnel Management Magazine.

Top U.S. Business Coaching Company to Offer New Year-long Integrated Business and Marketing Training, Coaching, Support, Resources Program to Make it Possible: Training with Coaching Increases Productivity by 88%, Coaching Alone Increases 22%

Until now, owners of small professional service businesses typically thought they needed to choose between a balanced business bank account and a balanced life. They figured they must decide between the stereotypes of a "hippie" company that saves the world or a "money-grubbing" one that is financially viable. Working toward goals of becoming big fish who are famous in their fields often went by the wayside.

"Motivated entrepreneurs can earn more, work less and be socially conscious while becoming a big fish," according to award-winning business and marketing strategies author and professional speaker Kelly O’Neil of UpLevel Strategies. Her firm when under its previous name was given the 2004 Purple Cow Award as "One of America’s Most Innovative Companies." O’Neil offers recommendations below on ways small businesses can start the process.

Her new year-long Business Mastery Platinum Program™ offers integrated business and marketing training, coaching, support and resources to make it possible. A study by Public Personnel Management Magazine showed that training alone increased productivity by 22%, but when paired with coaching the figure soared to 88%. Details about the new program can be found at http://www.uplevelstrategies.com/programs_sub02.asp.

"It’s all based on my Business Mastery Strategy System™ of taking entrepreneurs running small businesses to the next level of annual income, infrastructure and success. I offer guidance whether you are searching to break $100K or $1 million a year," said O’Neil, founder of UpLevel Strategies.

Below are some of the many guidelines:

1. Become a Big Fish – Recognize your special area of expertise. Then develop and implement a marketing plan for becoming famous as an expert in your field. Give talks at conferences, write articles, publish e-books.

2. Earn More - Work on your business as well as in your business. In other words, spend time marketing your company and developing systems to make it more efficient. Decide what you want to accomplish over the next three years, then write a business plan and marketing plan on how to achieve that goal. Invest in your business.

3. Work Less - Plan your days off and vacations. Then build your schedule around them. To increase productivity, drop one work day per week, either a Friday or Monday.

4. Do Good - Focus on your passion and dream for your business, building in your desire to create a better world.

If all this sounds like excellent advice but overwhelming to do on your own, there’s help. UpLevel Strategies is offering a new Business Mastery Platinum Program™. It will put representatives of small businesses on the path and give you the tools, know-how, accountability and structure to reach your biggest business dreams. This 12-month program includes integrated business and marketing training, individual coaching, mastermind group support, business leads program, and an Internet vault of resources, ranging from sample letters to contracts. This multi-pronged approach helps entrepreneurs find the comprehensive education and support they need to become big fish.

According to leading internet marketing consultant Marc Harty of StrategicTraffic.com, "The Business Mastery Platinum Program™ is brilliant. Kelly’s philosophies and strategies are innovative and insightful. The network of highly creative and successful people itself is worth the entire fee."

O’Neil continues, "Only 15% of new businesses in the U.S. exist after five years and most of those only break even. Poor marketing and planning are key elements that lead to failure. In order to receive the help that most entrepreneurs need to be successful, the multi-pronged, integrated approach is essential. When facing these odds, one type of help alone is not enough for small businesses. "

  • Three 2-day Intensive Seminars, which are held every 120 days in San Jose, California.
  • Twenty-four 30-minute private coaching sessions with a Master UpLevel Business Coach.
