Leeds-based business mentor and entrepreneur Gary King will launch the new service, known as ‘Freedom to Choose’, for his self-employed peers this month.
The new programme is intended to help entrepreneurs achieve financial freedom and enable them to ‘buy back’ their own free time.
Through a mixture of online courses, group workshops and one-to-one business mentoring, Gary shares the mistakes he made and the lessons he learned in his own business life.
“The turning point for my business came when I finally realised that I should be paying people to do all the jobs I hated,” he said. “It’s a common myth that you have to do everything in your business.”
“Once I was brave enough to outsource time consuming tasks to experts, I could concentrate on the things about my business that I loved, and that shift quickly converted into winning more business and making more money.”
This is the idea behind Gary’s Freedom to Choose Programme - to share with his peers the lessons that allowed him to turn his failing business life around.
“No one gets into business to work longer hours for less money, but that’s what happens for a high number of business owners.
“Most business owners only spend 40% of their time client facing, doing what they love. The remaining time is doing all the other stuff that comes with running a business.”
“What I’ve discovered as the most valuable thing we can work towards, is having the freedom to choose when to work, and when to spend time with friends and family; freedom to choose what to earn, and how to spend it, and freedom to choose how big you really want your business to get.”
