Why should you listen to us?
John Strange has over 40 years of experience of working in and with small business. He has made the mistakes so you don't have to!
To give you some background as to what John is about, and his credibility, here is a short summary of his story:
John began his working life in UK with Rolls Royce Aircraft Engines, working as an engineer up until 1969 when John and his wife Chris emigrated to Australia.
Obviously, Australia did not have a significant aircraft manufacturing industry back then, so John had to learn a completely new way of earning his living.
Having struggled to find his niche in a few different jobs, John finally tried his hand at working for a small business and that’s when it started to come together for him. John then went on to start his own small business and this was where he really began to feel at home.
Over the next 17 years, John built a substantial business and life looked great. Life circumstances led to the selling of his successful practice, and a move to Cairns where he started another business within personal financial designs.
John managed to double his net profit every year for 3 years prior to selling his practice using social media! He managed to build a business that could run without him. He could leave it for months and not receive a single phone call.
2 years ago John sold this business to Danny Maher, a business that was brilliantly systemised and profitable.
John has now (at 71 years old!) started a new business called YOUR BUSINESS FREEDOM.
John's vision for Your Business Freedom is to help as many small business owners as possible to achieve the same success that he had in business before he "falls off his twig." (Those are Johns own words!)
If this is not enough to get you interested, here's a few more facts:
John is part of an international network of almost 100 business advisers/coaches/consultants across Australia.
John has recently won the award for "Consultant of the year," in this network, awarded by MAUS business systems. Given the calibre of the people in the MAUS network, this really is a massive achievement.
John is a keynote speaker for the next "Adviser Edge" conference. He will be speaking about using social media to build a business to over 300 advisers from all over Australia.
