What we're about

Starting a business can be difficult, and scaling even more of a task. Navigating the business, marketing, funding and investment just to get started is hard enough, and by the time your business is underway finding the resources to then scale can become overwhelming. Manchester Business Growth & Scaling is about overcoming these problems by finding like-minded individuals who are on the same path, are looking to begin it, or have already successfully achieved growth. Let's build a community that helps one another.

Events and Meetups will focus around raising investment, systemising your business so you can grow and marketing your product.

Defeating Procrastination: Entrepreneurs Accountability Group

Online event

£14.00

This is a paid event. Normally £28 we're currently running a 50% discount on your first month if you join our membership club HERE: https://catalyst-academy.co.uk/programmes/entrepreneurs-accountability-membership Use the code NEWBIE2020 Once you join, we'll send over information for the zoom. Making a business a success can seem like an impossible task, even when we know what we should be doing we find ourselves procrastinating, holding back and just not getting things done that we know we should. Sure, we have an endless list of excuses for why we do this, and a lot of them are legitimate: we’re burned out, we work too much, there’s too many other things for us to be doing...but deep down we know we could be much further along towards our goals than we are now if only we would do what we need to do. We’re not getting the results we want, and yet we still keep putting off the important things we know we need to do. Sound familiar? These meetings are for you if you’re under-achieving and under-delivering. You’re tired of your own excuses, you’re ready to stop holding back and you’re ready for a change and are willing to do what it takes. The thing is you don't have to try to achieve everything alone, there’s a reason that all successful entrepreneurs say that you need a mentor, a peer, SOMEONE TO KEEP YOU ACCOUNTABLE. That’s what we’re here for, together with other entrepreneurs we will meet and discuss your business, your goals, the actions you should be taking and whether or not you are fulfilling those actions. These meetings are here to hold you accountable. They’re here to push you towards your goals and ensure that you have someone you’re answering to. Our aim is to create a beneficial, motivational and responsible community that supports you in achieving your goals. Though we’ll be strict, we’ll also have fun. After all who knows better the difficulties of entrepreneurship than a group of entrepreneurs. How does it work? So you’re ready to achieve all your goals? Here’s how… It’s simple. We run a 21-day sprint where you set your goal, you agree the actions you’re going to take towards that goal, you agree your consequences for not working towards that goal, then you check-in to tell us that you’re doing exactly as agreed. Step One Set the goal. Once a month you set down the goal you want to achieve Step Two Agree the actions. With the help of your peers, you agree on the actions you’ll take towards your goal. Step Three You commit to when & for how long you will take these actions Step Four We HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE Here's What You Get Monthly Meeting Each month we have an intensive 60-minute meeting to set up the 21-day sprint, during this time we examine the goal you want to achieve, the actions you will take and the commitment you will make, and how you will get the most out of your actions and time. Daily Check-ins Daily check-ins through our group for support and accountability (and to let us know you’ve done your daily jobs.) Weekly Accountability Call Each week we have a 20minute call to quickly touch base with the group. This is your opportunity to explain any difficulties you're having, and to acknowledge all you have achieved. Community & Peer Support You have access to all our other members and their vast wealth of knowledge, we all are here to support one another, so if you have questions you can ask them, and we will always try our best to help you find solutions.
