matrix

Every successful business goes through five key elements of growth and brand development. These are:

1. Awareness. Do people know you exist?
2. Credibility. Do people trust your brand?
3. Profitability. Are your operations efficient enough to make you profitable?
4. Systematization. Can your business run without you?
5. Leverage. Can your business model scale or expand?

At Candeo Business Coaching, we work with you on each of these five areas, helping you to explore where you are now and how to get to where you want your business going.

We’ll evaluate each of the five key areas above and identify those areas that are strong and those which need work.
