The Fun in Business Intensive Program
The adventure of a lifetime: discover your unique, beautiful business and life
The New Perspectives Fun in Business Intensive program is a transformative 6-12 month business-life coaching, mentoring and support program designed for individual business owners, business partners and husband-and-wife teams who want to build a beautiful business and life – while having more Fun in Business at the same time!
Are you stuck in your business, and would you like to get unstuck?:
The Fun in Business Intensive program is designed for business owners who find themselves operating in a near-constant state of overwhelm and frustration. If you’re fed up with the struggle and ready to roll up your sleeves, I can help you start building a beautiful business and life today.
The Fun in Business program is based on the core principles of my book series “The Ten Truths Trilogy: Business books for people who don’t read business books but should”. I would suggest you check out the third one, in particular: “The Ten Truths for Making Business Fun” (a fun read, of course). You can download all my books for free here.
My holistic business coaching programs involve combining visioning, planning, strategy, accountability, support, guidance, brainstorming and advice with coaching and mentoring methodologies, resources and tools that simply work.
The 6 components of the Fun in Business Intensive program:
- Comprehensive online business health check report.
- Webinar series: “The Small Business Masterminds™”
- My book: “The Ten Truths for Making Business Fun”.
- Weekly or fortnightly 1:1 coaching and mentoring sessions (face-to-face, Zoom (or similar) or phone).
- Unlimited phone and email support.
- Access to an extensive library of business development resources and tools.
“Make no mistake; for one person, Roland is a powerhouse of ability, knowledge, support and wisdom.” (Tony Isgrove, Isgrove Painting and Decorating)
What’s Fun got to do with building a beautiful business and life?:
Does this situation sound familiar?
You run around dealing with crisis after crisis all day, extinguishing brush fires along the way. You’re the first one in the door each morning and the last one to leave at night. You’re always catching up on admin, emails and quoting after dinner. Your staff don’t seem able to tie their own shoelaces. Clients expect you to serve their needs, personally, whenever they have even a slight cough (even though you’ve got a bunch of perfectly qualified staff to do the work). And to top it all off, you’re barely making any more money now than you were 5 years ago.
Well, I think it’s time we started thinking differently about business. It’s time to appreciate that there is something far greater for us to achieve than making sales, improving systems and generating cash.

Business is Fun when everything is working as you want it to.:
Focusing on the concept of “Fun in Business” is a really effective way to start moving out of overwhelm, stress and “stuckness”. You see, when business is fun, it means that everything is working. It means that you are:
- Making money and generating cash flow,
- Making sales,
- Becoming a better leader all the time,
- Clear on where you’re going,
- Leading highly engaged staff,
- Loved by your customers,
- Proud of the stuff your business produces,
- Creating the kind of balance in life that is important to you.
And besides, your business is growing effortlessly.
Focusing on “Fun in Business” as the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) of the health of your business while understanding that all the other KPIs that we are used to measuring are merely drivers to the main KPI (of “Fun in Business”) will change your business and your life.
What makes the Fun in Business Intensive program different?:
My thoughts about business coaching and change are possibly a bit different to what you might expect or what you might have heard from others: I don’t love focusing on hard, inflexible goals. I spend more time working on the person than the business. I believe our partnership’s success is much more about your commitment than my skills (although I will give my genius some credit too). And that’s just the beginning.

What makes the Fun in Business Intensive program so important to you?
The Fun in Business program is about going on a journey. A big journey. An adventure even. Why? Because change can only ever happen on a journey. You can never just flick a switch to implement change.
You’ve heard people talk about stepping out of their comfort zone. I agree that we must step out of our comfort zones to create change (and stay there).
We need to get out on the ocean because nothing exciting ever happened in the safety of the harbour. Poking your nose out, looking at the horizon and turning back again in time for lunch is not going to change your business or your life.
To change our business and our life, we must hoist our sails, set a course, and above all, we must not turn back. When you are ready to do that, you might want me to tag along on your adventure because:
- I will help you set a course and adjust it as circumstances change.
- I will keep you focused on your route and destination.
- I will teach you the skills you need to keep the ship safe and headed in the right direction.
- I will make sure you know when to row (and row hard!) and when to let the wind move you for a while.
- And finally, I have been out on the ocean many, many times… I know how to keep your ship safe.
Coming on a journey with me in the Fun in Business Intensive program will truly change your business and your life forever. I promise you.

Next step: The Five Steps:
Before we engage in any of my full coaching programs, I always advise we follow my “Five Steps to Discovery Process”. The first steps in the process are free and there will be no pressure in any form. At the end of the process, it will be clear to both of us if we should engage and go on a journey and adventure together or not. You can read all about it on the 5 steps page at the link above.
You can also go straight to my online booking calendar to book a free initial chat.
