Do you ever wonder where you sit on the business owner spectrum? You may be a business owner but there’s a thin line between successfully running a business and just being self-employed.
I interviewed Ben Fewtrell, co-owner of MaxMyProfit, who told me business owners who are merely their own employees is more common than you think.
Ben, along with his business partner David Carlin, runs the NSW-based company, whose detailed and comprehensive e-Learning programmes help Australian business owners build a better business.
The coaching business is based on the Business Exceleration™ Blueprint, a five-stage business growth system supported by an online hub of tools and resources.
Ben has been in the business coaching industry since 2001 after being involved in a franchise, and later branching out on his own to build a business with employees.
In this interview, he talks diversifying, building a business through social media and mastering the transition from delivery to leadership.
