Dan is now three months into the 12-month mastermind program and, as well as having some much-needed accountability, he has a better understanding of his niche target market as well as having developed enhanced staff management skills.
Thanks to guidance from the Red Monkey Coaching team, Dan says the prototype of the vehicle should be completed at about the same time as he finishes the mastermind program – which is probably a good six to nine months quicker than he would have been able to achieve if left to his own devices.
“The quality of the product that we will get on account of Mark’s input into my decision-making processes at a few points is going be a much better product – there is no question, he has been a positive influence there,” he says.
Plus, it’s not just that the project timeframe has been supercharged, Dan says having someone else in his corner who is only interested in his success has also been a godsend.
“Mark obviously can’t share the passion that I have for this project, but he’s got a way of investing himself into it – his main agenda is quite clearly my success, which is just fantastic,” Dan says.
“To have someone like him in your corner, who has been able to make a career out of liaising with other successful people in other fields and bring all that corporate knowledge that he’s gathered, to then be able to guide me through the stages of my venture, it’s like a sort of supercharger for your business”.
“Personally, he’s a lovely bloke, he’s very easy to get on with, and he’s very positive. You know that his only agenda here is to help me succeed in what I want to do, which makes you feel like a million bucks. It’s just like having another bloke in your corner.”
