Here are the answers to some of the most common questions that I get asked about my “Make IT, Manage IT, Keep IT And Grow IT ™” Coaching Program.

But before you get stuck into them, people sometimes ask me, ‘Rob…why do you do this work?’
Well, this email that I received on the 30th of January, 2015 explains why.
You can’t beat the feeling of getting an email like this:

“For those small business owners who can’t decide if the journey of business coaching and more importantly coaching with Rob Kropp is worth it I would like to share a little something with you… After a decade of working for myself and having a business that ran my life with a turn over that I couldn’t push past $1.2mil for all my best efforts, I decided to take the plunge…

Today I have signed a lease on a much larger premises (and am concerned we will outgrow it quickly), hired our first dedicated administration lady, separated out finances to an individual CFO role, and also hired our second Business Development Manager… All in one day…

We now turn over $3.8mil and have some significant growth goals to meet this year again. Most importantly the companies no longer run me…! A feeling most small business owners never experience, running a business instead of it running them…”

FAQ’s


The number one reason why it’s important you do this program is that it will help you enjoy your business and your family more straight away…

Money, business and all that comes with it delivers a lot of stress within a team and a family and the best way out of that is with a proven system and the support to get you through.

This means you can enjoy a life with more freedom and choices.

The other big reason is that it will help you to avoid making the biggest mistakes that most business owners make… You get to leap frog the bad times.

You see there are literally dozens of mistakes you can make…and each one can cost you big time.

For example, some of the common mistakes include:

  • Burning money by spending money on marketing before you understand your market, your message and the correct approach and mediums;
  • Blowing your money on the wrong people, team is such a critical area of growth and releasing yourself from the burden of the business, you really need to get this right.

To achieve financial independence, each move you make needs to support your overall strategy, otherwise your business could fall apart because it is imbalanced.

And we don’t just stop at the business, we deal with your mindset and any blockages you may have in a range of areas.

In our program, we show you how to avoid these mistakes – and many others.

And that’s why our clients tell us that our program has not only allowed them to build net-worth, lifestyle and relations much quicker – but it has also paid for itself many times over by allowing them to avoid big and costly mistakes.

Then of course there’s the issue of ‘speed.’

With the help of my Team and I, you can realise your goal of financial freedom through your chosen vehicle, your business, much sooner.

You make your payment once you have been accepted for the program. The whole thing is a simple process. You can apply here
Obviously your level of success depends on your willingness and commitment to put the techniques and strategies into practice with the help of your coach and support from me.

However if you take action, then we are confident you’ll be making great steps as soon as you’re in the program. As you can see from the testimonials we provide, many of our students have played full out and have built major businesses and experienced massive growth – while others have chosen a more modest path. We will support you in whatever path you wish to take.

After all, the plan we create together is ultimately yours and we will do our utmost to support you 100% of the way.

Absolutely not. There are countless businesses in Australia and I have my program structured so you are 100% supported at every stage. You are assigned an accountability manager as soon as you join.
Absolutely! That’s why we have developed a proven system over time… So there are no surprises along the way. You get to go as fast or as slow as you like.
Absolutely! Even though this program contains all the necessary step-by-step information for beginners to get started, it also contains many advanced strategies and techniques to help you.  This includes how to:

  • The 2V Formula – Engineer a Vision of EXACTLY where you want your business to be in the future – it’s about Clarity of Direction and Purpose.
  • Establish SMART financial targets (for the next 24 months) as per the 6 Key Profit Drivers.
  • Integrate the most effective Money Management System that will help you drive down debt and increase savings and wealth creation quicker than you have ever done before.
  • Create YOUR ‘Why’ – Having a deep and meaningful Why (that supports the 2V Formula) will propel you, your business and financial success forward, out of your current comfort zone and into your best year yet.
  • Your Freedom Road-Map – Focused on a financial growth plan, this will lay down your path to financial Freedom. You pick the timeframe, we show you how. Use the financial road map as the basis for your 90-Day (Quarterly) Action Plans.
  • Dashboard reports will consist of an agreed set of KPI’s that the business can report on in order to track your key business and financial results.
  • The Mindset Motivator – Dissolve some of the major self-imposed limitations (fear, doubt, shame, resentment etc.) holding you back from a vision that will make you as much money as you choose.

The reality is if you don’t have a massive net-worth, an amazing lifestyle and great relationships both at home and at work- then there are definitely tips and strategies you can learn from me to get you there because that is what I’ve achieved.

A number of quite experienced business owners have commented that our coaching techniques have provided a whole new perspective to growth and freedom to them.

Even though they had read and studied widely, they still learnt something new from this program.

You may be a successful business owner already and could be overlooking opportunities which will be revealed to you in this program (or you could be making mistakes that could eventually come back to bite you).

I think it’s also important to mention that you should always be getting advice from people who have achieved the results you want to achieve – so make sure you verify the results of whomever you get advice from.

The short answer is Yes… If you are just starting out in business, our program is not for you. We do have certain qualifications that our attendee’s must meet. Generally, the rule is that you need to have a business that is turning over at least $500K per annum.

We have had a couple of people join below this marker, although they did have special circumstances (ie: they had just sold a business and were looking to buy another and wanted help in growing quickly).

The best thing to do is to Apply and if we see that you may be a fit, we will certainly talk with you.

Essentially, that is a question you will need to answer for yourself… Is the short-term pain worth the gain?

In our discussion, we will be able to show you some quick ways to improve your cash flow. So it may be a matter of time rather than ‘making sense’.

Regardless of how much money you have on hand, you still need to acquire the necessary knowledge before you are able to grow effectively. Growing without knowledge is basically gambling – and we all know the outcome of gambling!

Once you have acquired the appropriate knowledge, you may be able to find joint venture partners or other ways to make substantial increases in turnover relatively quickly. In fact our program is designed to bring you into contact with other like-minded business owners who may be looking for joint venture partners as well.

And the best part is we show you how to do all this safely.

Definitely. We have an Accountability/Support Team that will be with you every step of the way throughout your program. Apart from myself, this team is also comprised of experienced and successful business owners who will help you through all the facets of your growth journey.
Absolutely not. This is a step-by-step program including coaching, showing you how to grow your business strategically and safely using a proven process and methods.

As you can see, it’s not a “get rich quick scheme” but it’s certainly an achievable goal for most people. The best part is you get a ton of support and handholding on the way so that you feel encouraged and motivated to take action. That’s why our success rates are so high.

Below are some of the distinguishing factors that our students usually note about my program that sets us apart from other programs/seminars:

  • Weekly Master-Minding & Training Calls – An opportunity to learn from people sharing the same journey, shortcut the pitfalls and steepen your learning curve…. Plus 30 minute training segments built in to enhance the material you’re integrating.
  • Weekly Accountability Calls – Designed to ensure you’re implementing the teachings and that your plan is headed in the right direction.
  • Fortnightly 1:1 Coaching – Helping you breakthrough self imposed limitations that are holding you back from rapid progress in business and personal growth. These create the right mindset for beliefs and values and align you to your goals.
  • Templates and Tools – all the tools, templates and proformas needed to succeed and grow, while keeping you on track.
Yes, although that person must be a family member or partner in the business.
That is exactly what we do- we show you how to create an strategy that fits your personal circumstances and helps you to meet your goals.

Everyone is different and is starting off from a different position with different goals in mind. You might not want to build a big business, you may just want to make it run more effectively and have it pay you more profits.

Someone else might want to build a $30M business with all the bells and whistles. Obviously the strategies involved will be different in each case.

The first thing you do in our program is to create your own Growth Plan & Strategy. Then my team and I will review it and make sure it’s going to get you to where you want to go – i.e. financial freedom – in the shortest time possible and in the safest possible way.

It’s this personalised approach that ensures our clients achieve their financial freedom so quickly, because they’ve got clear direction.

As mentioned above, my team and I are available to give you the personal ongoing support you need to be successful. This includes personal calls from me.

You can email the office to get the answers to your burning questions at any time. If you have a question and you want to speak to a real live person – you can do that too. Will it always be me that you speak to? Not always, but certainly often.

Here is some of what you’ll receive in this area…

  • Weekly Master-Minding & Training Calls – An opportunity to learn from people sharing the same journey, shortcut the pitfalls and steepen your learning curve…. Plus 30 minute training segments built in to enhance the material you’re integrating.
  • Weekly Accountability Calls – Designed to ensure you’re implementing the teachings and that your plan is headed in the right direction.
  • Fortnightly 1:1 Coaching – Helping you breakthrough self imposed limitations that are holding you back from rapid progress in business and personal growth. These create the right mindset for beliefs and values and align you to your goals.

In short, you will have a full Team supporting you throughout the whole program. When you call – we’ll be there. When you email – we’ll be there. And when we’re not – we’ll get back to you promptly.

Okay, that’s a lot of questions. Any other questions you can call me on 0417 704 467.

To your financial and family success,
