Shift Blueprint Model

Some Entrepreneurial Challenges

8 out of 10 entrepreneurs have never had any formal sales training

It takes an average of 10 calls to actually connect with a potential buyer

80% of all small businesses have never formalized a marketing strategy

60% of small businesses have no idea as to how their marketing strategy aligns with their sales strategy

HR and Legal are some of the last areas small businesses look at. Unfortunately, when they do, it’s usually too late

Many small businesses end up unsuccessful due to their lack of Labour Law knowledge

Lack of ICT infrastructure provides challenges for entrepreneurs to deliver on there promises to clients

The importance of an operating finance function/department is often underestimated by entrepreneurs

Most entrepreneurs do not have a formalized budget or know the break-even point of their business making it difficult to monitor profitability or the lack thereof

A lack of alignment between the sales pipeline and cashflow leads to cash flow shortages due to timing differences

Studies show that only 10% of startups develop adequate systems and processes early in their entrepreneurial journey

There is still a huge stigma with Entrepreneurs seeking guidance from Personal Development Coaches

“We believe that without developing some form of competency in each of the above areas, the entrepreneur’s chances of success are greatly reduced”

Alan Gibson - Oko Vusa Co-Founder
