    Having been in business for 21 years, I feel like I've come into a bit of a comfort zone and I want to re-ignite the passion and get my team on the same page.

    I find that sometimes as a business owner, it can be a bit of a lonely game and you tend to feel isolated sometimes having to make important decisions (alone). So, it was great to have somebody independent to really help us put in writing where we want to be and how are we going to get there.

    I initially reach out to Your Business Momentum because I wasn't very happy anymore. I was tired. I was struggling to leverage the potential that I had in the business and I was almost at a point where if things didn't change, I was actually going to sell. But I knew I didn't want to sell. I knew there was more that I had in me and more I had in my business. I just needed to find a way to do that.

    Your Business Momentum have sat with me and we've worked out what it is I do, why I do it, what my values are and how we are going to go forward. Your Business Momentum and the coaches have been there every step of the way. They've become like part of my team. They've become a sounding board for me. They've been there to push me, give me advice.

    The results have been astounding. We've achieved more in the last six months than we did in the last two years.

    We've seen our team buy-in to our plans and we've built that plan so we could go out to work for the next 10 years. It won't be as easy as that, there's still going to be a lot of hard work and we rely on (YBM) to help us. I can't speak highly enough of the work they did for us. The help they give us around building our team, our management team, building our business plan, our marketing plan, and helping built some processes to help the team go to work every day. With the right attitude, some clarity around their role, and a good plan for the next 10 years, they know we're here for the long haul and help them out.

    They are always pushing my boundaries as we run our team leadership days for a number of times now. We always get a really big impact out of it, and the whole team gets a big impact out of it. It brings a really big difference to our business and our growth.

    Greg and Joshna have become an integral component of our company, assisting me in driving the company through these challenging times.

    Their guidance, invaluable input and composed demeanour have proven to be an instrumental asset to our company. I cannot speak highly enough of Greg and Joshna and believe that they would be of significant benefit to any company.

    I have been working with Joshna for the last couple of years and she has become a vital part of our management team. Joshna has had a huge impact on myself personally and with my practice manager. A lot of consultants play at a high level and go missing when things actually need to be implemented.

    This is one of many areas that sets Joshna apart. She has provided us with a level of accountability and driven execution to the point where we have achieved more in the last 12 months of business than we have over the previous 11. That is saying something, because we had already achieved a fair bit anyway.

    Joshna is very analytical and has an amazing commitment to detail. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her and I cannot recommend her enough. Oh and she just a beautiful person to boot.

    Thank you for everything Joshna, from the entire team at The Podiatrist!

    We engaged Greg and Joshna to provide us with the required focus and direction to develop a strategy for our business. Running a business can be tough with no one to support you especially when making significant business decisions. Indeed, it’s a great thing to know that not only someone genuinely cares about how you are doing but also know exactly what to say or do to help you. Not many people have the wisdom and passion on what they do, and Greg and Joshna seemed to have it in them. Their experience in business is clearly delineated by the way they conduct themselves and the focus and knowledge they are able to impart.

  • KRA Wealth Management

    Having recently been promoted to a partnership role at KRA Wealth Management, Joshna was instrumental in providing ongoing support to me throughout the first six months in my role.

    Meeting on a regular basis, Joshna acted as an independent sounding board, providing excellent insight and advice with respect to the leaderships aspects of my role. This included the ongoing coaching of a team of financial advisers and providing structure to my communication with them. Beyond this she was able to provide suggestions around communicating with the directors of the business, around various strategic decisions we needed to consider.

    I look back on the growth I have experienced in my role (both as an adviser and in the leadership capacity), and see a new sense of confidence in how I approach both of these as a result of the work with Joshna.

    Before we had Greg come on board Pivit was under its usual pressure and not quite getting things to improve on consistent basis. Since Greg has come onboard he has put us through a process driven set of tasks that has led to Pivit having a clear vision of where it is going and a feeling that the business is getting easier and easier to run.

    This has led to me being able to spend more time creating the vision for the future and steering the ship in that direction with ease. At the time Greg got involved I was personally going through a major upheaval in my personal life and my stress levels were very high, now I feel if something major was to happen I could handle it easily as the business is running so much better now.

    Greg acts a mentor and confidant that I can call on when I need someone with the right skill level, understanding of business and understanding of my business to discuss things, bounce ideas and lead the business to good quality outcomes. This is a very valuable asset for the Pivit business and me.

    On top of this he just keeps us all on task and accountable to what we say we need to do for the business. This keeps us on track and ensures that strategic decisions are continually being implemented. Pivit now has a clear direction and focus that is systematically being implemented, I am now working ‘on’ the business with the right team around me, a forward business opportunity pipeline and a business that has is in the best shape financially it has ever been in.

    All of this and I am handling it with ease. Just to top it off, Greg is just a great bloke to work with. Thanks Greg and your team.

    “After 25 years of being in business through differing financial climates, I had become unfocused, despondent, and tired. Deciding to work with Joshna, has been like a total renewal, a re-birthing of potential.”

    Greg brings with him a wealth of expertise in management consulting coupled with a high degree of emotional intelligence that he successfully leverages to identify and resolve our workplace challenges. Greg prepared for us a thorough plan to improve business processes and made overall due diligence and a comprehensive company evaluation and workable solutions to put important aspects of the business in order.

    Greg makes sure that strategies are being systematically implemented, thus we now feel more in control and are now working more ‘on’ the business with the right team who are committed to the business future, a growing business opportunity pipeline and a business that has is in the best shape financially it has ever been in post GFC.

    His dedication is apparent, and he has always been extremely quick to respond to our needs. Greg is a trusted advisor and I highly recommend his firm.

    We had a vision to grow the business into a national operation, to be bigger than our current skill set, thinking and financial restraints. We didn’t know what we didn’t know as it turned out!

    Luckily we had the foresight to bring Greg Gunther as an independent director, shareholder and employee of Fitzpatricks Financial Group to help us realise our vision.

    The business under Greg’s guidance went from two partners making decisions on the run to a functional business, governed by a board with independent representation.

    Greg, as unconscionable big brother, took us through a process of setting up the Board for Fitzpatricks, along with our yearly calendar, governance framework, decision making process, accountability and roles and responsibilities. In the early days he hounded us to get us functioning and to be accountable to the business and all stakeholders.

    Three years later, our business has grown considerably. We are clear on our vision, our governance is robust, financials outstanding and we have attracted quality outstanding industry leaders to our business. This in particular we never thought possible. A great result in hindsight from humble beginnings. All made possible by one phone call. Thanks Greg!

    If you’re thinking of taking your business to the next level or have a second set of eyes cast over it, I cannot recommend Greg highly enough.

    The Board of Crystalaid Manufacture engaged Greg Gunther to facilitate its inaugural strategic review. Managing a diverse range of personalities, ages and cultures, Greg successful assisted us to work through the current situation and critically examine our future options. Greg’s approach was effective, structured and delivered clear outcomes for our board.

    Duncan Schultz
    Independent Chairman

    Probably the greatest impact since starting with Greg is the direction where all of our business, life and family aspects of our life were heading.

    There is definitely an increase in the bottom line of the business which is probably the main reason I started with Greg. We're working the same type of hours whereas before there was no direction in where those hours were going.

    The difference is we are working more on the business. The opportunities have just started to roll from there, we are able to give more direction to staff and more direction to the business itself. So rather than having to go out and get those, or just hope those opportunities come, they're just rolling on now.

    The way I describe (Greg’s service) is it's about having clear directions and also being more a business partner than a business coach. It's not about advertising, it's not about the sales, it’s not about three-for-one offers that other coaches have talked to me about. This is about having a clear direction of where you want to go and having clear structures in place and then everything else will flow from there. There's no fluff.

    If you are serious about moving your business forward and growing your business in the direction that you actually want to take it, then I think the service that you need needs to come from an outsider. I've been an athlete all my life and I've always take the value of the coach in that and I think the business needs someone like that as well. I truly believe that there's some sort of internal system that has to be there for a business to move forward, a small business to move forward because the support's just not there.

    Troy Morgan

    I think the best thing we ever did was to employ Greg to merge the two practices into a new entity because of what we've achieved. We made an enormous progression very quickly. Our financial performance has been excellent and I don't think we would have been able to achieve that on our own in such a quick period of time.

    We strongly recommend Greg for anyone else who’s planning to go down the path that we have, which was acquisition and mergers of businesses and practices. I think Greg is in a very good position to advise other veterinarians on how to better perform in their business. On a financial level, the new business is growing 20 per cent as opposed to our original growth of about 6 per cent. That's partly due to the fact that the staff have been released and allowed to run on their own and with more structure. Certainly financially it's been very successful.
