Need an extra push to grow your existing business or get a new idea off the ground? Let me help you reach your goals.

On our Libra Small Business Builders website you will find valuable and informative information when setting up or growing your farming operation and small business. The ideal starting point is by preparing a proper “business or farming plan” A well – structured business/farming plan is a good way to explore the feasibility of any business without actually having to start and run it. Good business planning can help you see serious flaws in your business concept. Any venture that face major changes ( and that means almost all businesses) needs a business or farming plan.

About the only person who doesn’t need a business/farming plan is the one who’s not going into business.  It’s also a big mistake to think that only startups needs business plans. Companies and Managers find plans useful at all stages of their existence. So, whether you’re a Small Business Owner / Agripreneur or simply someone looking to stay informed about the latest trends you’re come to the right place. Let’s learn, grow, and succeed together. Furthermore, setting up a small business or farming operation is an exciting but challenging venture that requires a lot of planning, funding, and legal compliance. Smooth Business Start with good Consultation.  Libra Small Business Builders can help you to be successful with your business or farming operation.

Analysis Paralysis

Some business owners and agripreneurs dive in head first without looking and make things up as they go along. Yet, there are business owners who stay stuck in “analysis paralysis” and never start. Perhaps you’re in a mixture of the two – and maybe that’s right where you need to be. Still, the best way to accomplish any business or personal goal is to write out every step it takes to achieve your goal.

How it Works:

Step 1 – Schedule a consultation via email.

Step 2 – We will get to know you & your goals.

Step 3 – We will give you a simple and clear plan of action with transparent pricing.

  • Will help you get organized.

Informative Business Information

Consultants versus Contractors

At some point in the life of your business – start up or existing – you will hire a “consultant” . Start with understanding the difference between a “consultant” and a “contractor”. A contractor is hired to get something done that you do not have time for or not enough work for a full – time employee. A consultant is someone you hire to share his or her knowledge and expertise with you. In a sense consultants teach you what they have taken years to learn. If a consultant has 25 years of experience and writes a book sharing that knowledge and expertise, you buy the book and read it. You will leverage that person’s knowledge and compress it into the time it takes you to read and apply what you’ve learned.

Yet, the same should be true of the “business coaches” you hire. They should be consultants, not contractors. They should be able to transfer their knowledge and skills to you. It is dangerous to fall in love with the idea of starting your own business without understanding the realities. Libra Small Business Builders can help you with this and much more.

How to get maximum value when you hire a consultant or business coach:

Consider the following guidelines when you decide to hire a consultant or coach:

  1. Be realistic in your expectations – The main reason for hiring a consultant is to gain a new perspective, plus access knowledge and expertise not readily available. so, it is important that the consultant have the ability and willingness to transfer skills and expertise.
  2. Remember that you own the business – Because you are the only one who can decide, you are the one who will be left holding the bag at the end of the day. The consultant is not there to make decisions for you, but to provide perspective, information, and observation. Furthermore, the consultant is also there to train you.
  3. Listen to the consultant – Hear out what the consultant has to say – ask questions. So, do not be afraid to say you do not understand what is being told to you. Take in the information, ask for guidance on how to apply the information, and make your own decision.
  4. Provide the consultant with feedback – Let him or her know what you like and what could be improved on.
  5. Give the consultant permission to speak his or her mind and tell you the truth – You do not need someone to “tickle” your ears. So, you do not need someone who agrees with everything you say. The consultant should have the confidence and communication skills to challenge you.

When you do all these things and hire someone you trust and respect, you will have a great experience and your business will be better off.

Problems & Solutions

PROBLEM WORTH SOLVING

OUR SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM

Small Business Set Up Start with compiling a Business Plan (or ask a professional to do one). We will guide you with the process when you use our services. Business Plans are like “road maps”: its possible to travel without one, but that will only increase the odds of getting lost along the way.
Small Business Funding Small businesses and farming operations are struggling to get the fuel they need to grow sustainably. When you make use of our services, we provide you with list of Investors and show you how to approach them successfully.
Farm Safety & Security Security is becoming an important issue for farmers/agripreneurs. Even if the risk of an attack on your farm is minimal, you should at least consider your vulnerability to other criminal acts. See our Blog Post – Safety & Security.
What type of Business to start Many people dream of starting their own business or farming operation. Running an enterprise in your home or on the go means you can take more control over your professional goals, set more ambitious financial targets and achieve more desirable work- life balance. See “Proven Small Business that never fail” article.
Farming – Water scarcity problems Agriculture consumes more water than any other source and wastes much of that through inefficiency. Climate change is altering patterns of weather and water around the world , causing shortages and droughts in some areas and floods in other. Consider & Implement hydroponic/tunnel farming. See our Blog posts.
Land Development Issues The raw land development process is often viewed as a complex investing strategy – only “experts” should consider taking on. Although investing in undeveloped land is a complex strategy, beginners shouldn’t necessarily avoid it. See our “services page – Real Estate/ Rural Development for professional help.
Student Accommodation South Africa’s dire shortage of student accommodation continues to be an opportunity for real estate investors. Investors with a vision can currently snap up under-utilized buildings such as office blocks at excellent prices and convert these into cost – effective student housing offering stable returns.  See our “Services Page” on the subject.
