The way we do business has changed forever, setting your business up and training your team to work from home or offsite is now a necessity rather than an option.

This is not a new concept for me, I’ve been working this way a long time before COVID-19 came along.

I’ve been using cloud technology to operate my businesses from anywhere since May 2013 (read the full story here)

I’ve been helping other business owners do the same since 2015.

The Any Where, Any Time, Any Device Program is for business owners that need the skills, tools and mindset to effectively operate their business in the current COVID-19 situation and beyond.

 THE ANY WHERE, ANY TIME, ANY DEVICE PROGRAM

This tried and tested program has been delivered successfully and changed the way business owners in the Bega Valley and Eurobodalla operate their businesses.

This program has given these business owners the confidence, skills and resources to use cloud technology to operate their businesses more effectively.

Participants now work with less stress and overwhelm, they are equipped with the flexibility to continue their business operations through crisis.

“I have found this course to be absolutely brilliant!! I have learnt so much and it has changed how our business operates on a daily basis.”

Jo Rodely – Tathra Oysters

The program guides participants through securing their business in the cloud so that it is effectively accessible from anywhere, at any time and on any device.

Participants will be guided step by step on how to implement a small suite of tools that integrate together to manage their business, secure their digital world, securely store and share their business data, increase productivity, collaborate with their team and get their inbox to zero every single day.

The end result is a business that is future proof, flexible, secure and able to operate profitably in any situation.

The benefits of this program go beyond the business into personal wellbeing and happiness for business owners, their team and their family.

This program has changed the lives of many-check out what past participants had to say.

THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM

The biggest challenge for business owners is time, they are too busy running their business to be able to commit to attending workshops online or offline at set times.

The flipped classroom method opens the opportunity for participants to work at their own pace in their own time for the majority of the learning experience.

There is still a group session component but the time allocated to these sessions is significantly reduced, the participants come to these sessions armed with the knowledge from the self paced learning they take part in each week.

“Fantastic course and great to be able to revisit the videos and resources. Essential skills for scaling a business to streamline processes and become more efficient – THANK YOU!”

“WFA has given me my weekends back. I have a 3-year old, and I was finding myself constantly trying to do all the admin stuff on the weekends. That was really impacting my time with my family, and I was not loving my business. After working with Andy I feel freer, I feel calmer, and I definitely have more time.”

Justine Cox, Director, Leaders Change Room

“We’ve got over 30 employees so I was looking for options to streamline the business and my time. We’ve transitioned to G Suite, and without Andy’s help, it would have been too daunting. I can only see things getting quicker, smoother, and saving more time. The team is finding things simpler and easier too. I’m glad I took the step to join the program. ”
