Government Grants Available To Help Grow Your Business

One of the fastest ways to grow your business is to engage the services of a business coach or mentor to help with developing your business systems, marketing strategies, and operational and strategic planning.

Unfortunately, many small business owners still think coaches and mentors are too expensive, which is not really the case if they're helping your business increase revenue and profits, and teaching and empowering the business owner to eventually self-manage.  

The Government Can Help

Even though I do not believe coaching and mentoring to be expensive, I do understand it is not FREE and sometimes cash flow can be tight, especially if you're just starting out, or only been operating for a few short years, but I have some very good news.  

There are a number of local, state and federal government agencies approving government grants for small business owners and until recently I was unaware these types of business grants were available, but you do need to meet certain criteria. 

One Grant Does Not Fit All

There are many grants available and type of grant varies depending on the size of your business, your gross revenue and numbers of years you've been trading. For example, a small business that qualifies for the Small Business Entrepreneur Grant may not qualify for the Accelerate Small Business Grant, or the Small Business Digital Grant, purely based on the turnover of the business. 

It's important to point out that a government grant does not cover the full amount of coaching and mentoring, it will only cover a percentage, up to 50%, but this could equate to saving you thousands of dollars over a six or twelve month period, so it's very worthwhile, especially if you need assistance to grow your business. 

How To Apply

If you want to apply for a government grant you can contact the various government agencies yourself, however, if you want to improve your chances of a successful grant application it may be best to talk with someone who can help guide you through the grant process. 

I'd like to point out that I am not that person to help you with your grant, however, if you email me at email/tf)( or phone me on 0408 671 966 I can put you in touch with someone who specialises in this particular area and their success rate is phenomenal. 

Stop Sitting On The Fence

If you've been thinking about coaching and mentoring for some time, maybe 2018 will be the year you get off the fence and make a decision. If you qualify for a government grant that's great, but if you do not, you should still invest in yourself and your business by having a business coach or mentor. 

"Tyson's influence on me as a practitioner, a business owner and a person has been incredible. I approached Tyson firstly for some basic marketing advice, and once I realised his skill set, I quickly secured his services as a mentor. Tyson and I worked on a number of processes to ensure that I set and achieved goals that were relevant to my practice, and achievable. Along the journey, I established systems that I did not previously have, nor appreciate. My internal, external and online marketing strategies are now in place, and I have nearly doubled my new patient intake in under 6 months, and I have Tyson to thank for it. Finally, I will say this: Tyson is not only a great mentor but a fantastic human being who is kind, caring and reasonable. I would recommend Tyson as a mentor to any budding health practitioner.
