How to increase my business sales and profit


You are brave!

You had an idea for a business, and then you made your dream into your reality. Sometimes your dream business isn’t always so dreamy!

Being a small business owner is hard work, you are responsible for everything and everyone involved. Juggling tasks is part of your everyday life and you don’t always get to do the tasks that motivated you to start your business in the first place. Dealing with the branding, marketing, product and customers are the tasks that make your heartbeat. The thought of sitting at a computer going through numbers on a spreadsheet fills you with dread 😱…. is this beginning to sound familiar?

You are not alone, there are many business owners out there (just like you 👩🏻👨🏼🧔🏾👩🏼‍🦰👱🏻‍♀️👩🏽‍🦱) that work hard spending much of their days doing the tasks that they love, in hope that this will compensate for time spent away from their numbers. It’s hard to admit to yourself (and to others) that actually, you are not as close your business numbers as you should be.

BUT it is possible to be both creative and commercial!!!




You need to go back to the place where you dug deep and found the bravery that drove you to start up your own business. Then use this bravery to reach out and say that you need help. You are brilliant, but no one can do everything on their own. Even Superhero’s need a helping hand to succeed, Batman has Robin 🦸🏻‍♂️, and you can ask for support too!

It’s empowering to learn new skills. The confidence that comes from learning new things is energising and fills us with confidence. To feel that way about your business numbers would be great wouldn’t it?

Imagine having the confidence to make decisions to drive your sales and boost your profit by knowing that decisions you make are based on fact, and not just a hunch that you think, and hope is right (because it’s your business!).

By simply identifying key areas of your business you can work smarter not harder by focusing and prioritising areas that make you profit and drive sales. It doesn’t mean stepping away from the tasks that you enjoy, it means learning a new way of understanding your business that then allows you do to more of what you love❤️.
