The Book

  • Are you an ‘Independent Professional’ or ‘Professional Service Firm’?

You're a management consultant, trainer, coach, creative, financial or employment professional, homeopath, architect, accountant, solicitor, surveyor. The list goes on – you sell a service and it is probably a ‘professional service’… you sell some kind of expertise.

  • Do you wonder why you don’t get the results you feel you deserve?
  • Are you great at performing your skill but aren’t so sure about how to get more/better clients?

If so, then this book is for you.

Grow Your Service Firm shows you a simple way to improve your sales and profits; secure a reliable ‘sales funnel’ of leads coming to you rather than you seeking them out. This system avoids the miseries of futile cold calls and gets targets to start coming to you.
