Evertrue Permaculture Business Coaching

Why work with me? 

I live and breathe small business. There may be other coaches who have left corporate careers, or those who are employees of a business coaching firm, but I was born and bred to be a small business owner. My parents owned a small business, as well as my Oma. My entire working life – over 30 years now – has been connected to small business. 

I have seen what works and what doesn’t. I understand the rut you can fall into, I know what it feels like to start with a dream, only to find yourself in a nightmare, and I have found the way out of that too – to realise the dream and finally get it together.

I understand the life, the pressure, the concerns, the highs and lows. I have lived it myself, running my own small business since 2005.

Sustainability Assessment

Measure your impact on the environment
Permaculture Principle 4 Apply Self Regulation & Accept Feedback

By completing a sustainability assessment, you can do a simple kind of audit through every aspect of your business, and identify opportunities for making small changes that you can do now, and perhaps bigger changes that you can work towards.

Consider the saying, a penny saved is a penny earned. A budget minded person goes through every category of their spending, and finds a small change they can make here and there. The overall lifestyle doesn’t change much at all, but the collective impact has a big difference on the money you can save.

In this sustainability assessment, you go through each category, and it’s as simple as just making observations and recording what you see, what you observe, what you have experienced, what you know. Consider the impact of each element using the same kind of matrix that you would when doing a risk assessment.

Zoom connect

Connect with us online for a 2 hour session to help you work through this assessment, and explore the observations and opportunities that may present themselves. Includes follow up contact to check off the action steps as you work towards sustainability.

1:1 Coaching Sessions

Don't tell me how to run my business

A Business Coach is very different to a business advisor or consultant. I DO NOT tell you how to run YOUR business! The focus of the coaching engagement is to achieve a result that you have not yet been able to accomplish on your own. You choose what you want that result to be.

Coaching Techniques Ask Questions

What I do is ask you thought provoking questions. I give you a safe and confidential space to explore. I use techniques that have been developed through countless successful real life applications.

Unlock potential find purpose chart journey

You could unlock what’s been holding your business back. You could finally begin to understand the financial reports and what they are telling you. You could find opportunities to grow into new markets that you hadn’t considered before. You could achieve your dream!

Connect with your Evertrue Solutions Permaculture Business Coach by phone (no tech required) and receive the one to one experience that could transform your direction, perspective, and alignment to your core values.

Business Plan Development

Business Machine Cogs Planning Strategy

If you don’t have a business plan, how do you know how your business is really doing? How will you know if one of the many cogs in this delicately balanced machine isn’t doing what it should?

Permaculture Principles Elements Ethics

An Evertrue Solutions Business Plan will infuse the Permaculture Ethics and Principles – as well as your personality and purpose – into the strategic, operational, marketing, financial and succession plans for your business.

Business Plan Strategy Financial Succession Operational

If you do have a business plan, when was the last time it was reviewed and updated? Are you still on track? What do you need to address to be able to reach your targets?

An Evertrue Solutions Permaculture Business Plan will help you run your business the way Mother Nature would have wanted you to. Because nature doesn’t get it wrong, you can always find the answer in nature.

Together Collaboration Business Planning Your Way

Compiled in close collaboration with you, allowing you to look after the day-to-day operations without the stress of developing your business plan on your own.
The completed business plan is anticipated to be delivered within 4 weeks of the inital Zoom meeting.
