Tired of going it alone in business?

 

The business support toolkit and community for growth-minded business owners

It seems like there are thousands of business-support coaches and programmes out there promising to help you grow but there’s a problem…
Many of them only focus on one area of business – they don’t look at the whole picture. The result is a half-baked solution that doesn’t actually move your business forward.

We see things differently.

The Leading Business Support and Community

Why The Engine Business Membership?

The Engine is a business support toolkit and community that will help your business grow. 

This is not your ordinary business advisory firm. Yes, we offer world-class business advice from top advisors but that’s not all you’ll get.

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We firmly believe that you can’t grow your business without the right support from the right people. 

Not only do we have top advisors on our team but we also partner with other trusted businesses. We handpick these businesses to provide critical business services across marketing, accounting, legal, workplace wellbeing and HR.

So you can stop doing it all and tap into the right people to help you when you need it. 

Business Membership Includes

Here’s a closer look at what you’ll get access to…

A 2-hour one-on-one session with one of our top advisors
(a value of $700)

Not only will they look at your whole business but can also help you plan or troubleshoot the specific area you’re struggling with. And give you a clear plan of action so that you know exactly what to do – without having to doubt yourself!

This session can also determine if your business is able to access co-funding through the Regional Business Partners Network. With this funding, you can get support from a wide range of services.

Business savings in your pocket with The Engine app.

You and your staff can save 10 cents a litre on petrol* every time you or one of your fleet vehicles needs to fill up any day of the week – not just when it’s discounted.

Your staff can save on their personal cars too – offering savings to your team is such a great way to say ‘thanks’.

*Fuel discount is subject to credit criteria.

You and them (staff) also have access to savings like:

%

Up to 15% off the retail price at Carters

%

20% off at Millennium Hotels and Resorts

%

Up to 30% off at Mico Plumbing

%

Up to 20% discount at Office Max

%

Up to 20% discounts at Bunnings

And much much more!

These savings alone more than pay for the price of the membership.

You don’t have to go it alone.

Get in front of your audience and make valuable business connections with our regular member-only networking events. (These events alone have been responsible for significant growth for our members – personally and professionally).

Get access to business tips, case studies and resources.

These will give you insight into real-life business situations and the solutions to those – so you can avoid the same mistakes or benefit from the learnings. We cover topics like how to build a strong culture, how to deal with anger management issues in the workplace and so much more.

Invitations to our member-only Quarterly Forums and other events

This is a chance for you to network, learn about a certain business topic and be inspired. As a member, you have an opportunity to present at these Quarterly Forums. This will provide you with a captive target market audience to help your business grow.   

BONUS: MEMBERSHIP SAVINGS IS FOR THE WHOLE COMPANY

If you have 1, 2 or 20 staff they will all save!  We believe great culture starts from sharing the savings.

YOU MAY BE THINKING

So how can a business advisor help me?

The Engine’s advisors have extensive business experience. 

If you are going to take a serious run at building or growing a business you need advisors.  

Our advisors have walked in your shoes, been hands-on and built the kind of company you want to build or grow many times.  

When we work with you we describe our relationship as jumping in the pool and swimming with you. We believe the only way to learn is hands-on, so yes you need to swim with us.

When you sign up to The Engine Business Membership you get one-on-one access to top business minds who can help you where you need it most.  

“When can I expect results?” 

Business, as you know, is a marathon, not a sprint. As soon as you sign up with The Engine Business Membership you’ll have advisors and a whole community to support and cheer you on the journey. 

You’ll get access to one of our advisors for your two-hour session which will give you immense clarity. These sessions alone have been worth tens of thousands of dollars to members who have tapped into them.  

Imagine having a problem that you’ve been going round and round in circles trying to solve yourself – resolved. Just because you could talk to someone experienced who gave you a clear path forward for dealing with it. 

A Holistic Approach

You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a coach who will only help you fix one area of your business – leaving holes in the rest. We provide a holistic approach and have the expertise to help you with every aspect of your business, so it can grow!

Only $72 per month

You don’t have to spin your wheels trying to figure things out on your own. From just $72 per month, you can access top, trusted business minds, service providers and network of business owners in your corner to move your business forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I cancel my membership?

You can cancel at any time however, as this is an annual membership you are committing to the full year if you consume the Advisory sessions, Customer Survey or Financial Review service. 

Can I use the fuel discount on my personal vehicle?  

Absolutely! All your staff can get discounts for personal vehicle use. Just make sure they complete the, “For individual/non-commercial customer” checklist. All fuel applications are subject to credit approval. 

Do I have to buy a membership for each employee?

Not at all! Our membership applies to your business as a whole. Keep in mind that the Advisory sessions, Customer Survey and such apply to the business not each empoyee so you will only be able to use this once. However, the savings such as the fuel discounts and company discounts apply to all staff.

Is this an annual or monthly membership?

This is an Annual Membership, and you can pay monthly or annually.
