As a typical building business that started with a builder and a van we had never considered ourselves as a “business”. We are a husband and wife team with just a few guys working with us, operating from a home office/workshop, so we had always considered the need for Business Planning and Coaching as a level above where we were at.
After meeting with Nathan Maisey we felt inspired to take our minds to he next level and invest in our business. Now we do consider ourselves a growing business and like working with Nathan to make sure we are spending our time and energy on the right aspects of our business. We find Nathan’s relaxed but focused approach works well for us and the coffee is top notch too.

Working with Nathan Maisey has made a significant difference to our operation and to the performance of our business. It’s great to have someone with a fresh set of eyes and ideas, and awesome to have someone to be accountable to. It’s helpful being asked the right questions to make me think about how we operate and how we could improve OSHbox. Nathan and the team at Maisey Harris offer great value for money and I would highly recommend working with them to grow your business.

Completing my business plan with Pete from MHCO has been a great help for both myself and the team inside my business. The ongoing planning sessions mean we are not only reminded of what we are striving for on long terms goals, but we are also accountable which in turn makes these things happen. MHCO have made the accounting side of my business simpler to understand, easier to stay on top of and streamlined to save time. They have been easy to work with and provided me with advice and expertise second to none, this helps me make crucial decisions for my business and stay on top of what really matters.I highly recommend this service even to those who are experienced business owners and can’t stress enough the value a third party perspective on our business has had.
The MHCo team are true to their word – proactive through numbers. Since moving our accountancy needs to MHCo we now have a sound understanding of our business financials and know exactly what we need to do to achieve our financial goals. The 3 month review meetings are invaluable; they allow you to implement change before it’s too late. A proactive approach opposed to yearly reviews which some accountancy firm’s offer. The MHCo team are easy to deal with and have processes and systems in place that are modern and that ultimately save our business valuable time.

We have a business that encompasses 4 retail stores as well as B2B trade, employing 18 staff. MHCo has raised our level of financial reporting and compliance to levels I would not have envisioned 6 months ago. As a result of this we now feel assurance that we are front footing our obligations and have a tight grasp on tracking and forecasting performance. I place great value on the way MHCo walk me through accounting laws so I have a level of understanding around our financial accounts that I was previously all at sea with. I would highly recommend these guys.

Such a valuable sounding board to say the least for me, it’s a great way to take advice from someone who is in a growing and successful business rather than someone who has it in theory. Would recommend this service to any entrepreneur or new business in a second.

I found the business planning session very relaxed yet focused as we covered a lot in a short period of time. For what would have taken me weeks to complete by myself, took one day.
Knowing that I am in good hands with a company that has a lot of experience dealing with businesses, I was confident it was time spent well. Developing my business plan helped me to get the ball rolling and it keeps me accountable for the goals I’ve set to achieve.

Peter has a great relaxed approach but still managed to get some hard work out of us. The business planning service made us take the time to think about the business at a high level, which we would not have done otherwise, as the detail and the work are always there.
Doing the business planning service has enabled me to feel more comfortable and in control. We can see 2018 is going to be a big year with lots to do but know we will be doing actions that help our business, not just action for the sake of action.
