Calling all entrepreneurial business owners, executives and teams

There are multiple ways we can work together

Someone Who Actually Cares
About Your Goals

My goal is to help you reach your goal. I’m in your corner every step of the way!

I'm here for you
no matter your location

Imagine, I’m in your corner able to assist, support, encourage and be your sounding block for those difficult times. You’re no longer alone, when you need me, just call.

Life is unpredictable.
Luckily I'm dependable

You can count on me and my team.
We’ll call you to check in, we’ll ensure you are moving forward, ready to meet those deadlines and commitments.

I offer SIX “Signature Packages” depending on your needs.

The purpose of these packages is to help you achieve accountability and a short-term goal, or perhaps many things over a twelve-month period. There’s a Bespoke Package that I can customise to suit your individual needs and outcomes, plus a my ‘Group Accountability Forum’ – where you pick your members to attend and I’ll harness everyones’ skills and abilities to create great outcomes for all. During our sessions, we have the flexibility to deal with situations and circumstances that ‘arise without notice’, so deviation from our plan is possible.

IT STARTS HERE

Unboxing Session - Free and without obligation -

This session takes between 60 and 90 minutes, they are face-to-face in person with Darren Finkelstein and would typically take place at your office or workplace, providing you are located within the Melbourne metropolitan area. Otherwise, we’ll use Zoom or Skype. You must undertake an Unboxing Session prior to commencing any of my programs, sessions or forum.

If your located outside metropolitan Melbourne, my travel guidelines will apply and you’ll need to arrange the meeting location. I’ll gladly travel to you but you’ll need to pick up my travel costs. It’s pretty standard and everything is doable. My travel guidelines are outlined within my ‘Rules of Engagement’.

The purpose of the Unboxing Sessions is to assess if we can work together and look at what needs to be done.
I’ll get to know you a little more as we talk about you and your why? We will identify what needs doing; you will explain your business, your team, your clients and your priorities moving forward. Then we will set timelines for the completion of your priorities. You’ll explain what’s not working for you and what has. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks along the way to assist you in getting stuff done.

If we are meeting at your location, I’ll get to view your office or workplace personally. I feel this inspection is essential as it enables me to see and experience your environment. It also helps me to get a clearer snapshot of our road ahead and to better understand the world in which you play.

Our Unboxing Session is also your opportunity to decide whether I’m the right fit for you. You’ll get to better understand my skill set and experience, you’ll get a clear feeling of my energy levels and drive. Ensuring we connect is vital – our chemistry is important.

From this free session you will answer three important questions: 1) Are we compatible, will this work? 2) What needs to be done, how long should you engage me to work with me? 3) When can we start?

Let’s get into this, there is a lot to do…

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for your assistance and guidance over the last while. Your systems and steady hand has been invaluable in enabling me to see significant growth in my business. And the really interesting thing is that I have this weird sense of freedom now that I get so much more done, and my golf handicap is the proof of it! I’ve shaved 4 shots off it this year!. Thanks again for the way you worked with me and the time and care you show in helping me shape my work life balance.

Darren’s energy, enthusiasm and genuine interest in the projects I am managing from time-to-time is just part of why I look forward to our discussions. The major part is his ability to positively push me into looking at challenges from different perspectives and to always bring me back to solving those challenges that is compatible to my customer value proposition. Darren ‘demands’ the level of accountability from me that made him successful – and I find that refreshing and invigorating. I am, without doubt, a massive advocate of Darren.
