The Business Architect
Rebuilding Businesses To Thrive, Not Just Survive
No Time. No Staff. Rising Costs. New Standards to meet...
No one said being a business owner was easy but with all the obstacles in the way, it can be hard to keep hold of your vision and remember why you took the leap of faith, why you took the bull by the horns and decided to be the master of your own destiny.
But most days it’s “The Same S**** Different Day"
You know you do a huge amount of good in your local community, providing jobs and servicing your customers and you have a vision to perhaps broadening your services to more specialised markets, but some weeks it would just be nice to have a bit space so you can spend time with the family and pursue other passion projects because you know there is a world outside your business and you just don’t know how to get there.

Introducing Matthew Wood - The Business Architect
It has always been my passionate belief, that every person should be able to be successful in their business while living their most healthy, joyful and fulfilling life and to their greatest potential.
From my early days running businesses with low margins, high expectations and high quality demands to now I have seen again and again the toll success has had on business owners working hard to give everyone around them what they need to thrive often at the expense of themselves - Success really is a double edged sword.
Over the years what I have come to realise is that there are three key areas that businesses need to have working together to create a vehicle that will allow a business owner to realise their bigger vision
● Profit (Margins)
We tend to forget a business is simply a vehicle we use to get us to where we want to go. A business shouldn’t be the be all and end all in our lives.
However what happens when a business doesn’t have all their internal systems or components working in tandem, is like a wheel failing off a car and not having a spare or roadside rescue.
We all buy roadside insurance for a reason !!!
They know what to do when we don’t have time or energy or knowledge...
I am that guy, the person who comes along with a set of purpose-built tools and helps you put on a new spare tire so you can jump back in the car (your business) and get to where you want to go faster (your goals).
My mission is to help successful business owners rebuild their businesses to give them the space they need to create the future they want. I do this by working closing with business owners to:
Redesign their business plan to align with their vision and personal needs
Construct the systems and resources that are missing
Deliver results; and
Create growth opportunities for the business and the business owner.
If that sounds like something you need in your business and your life - then let’s get going and do this together!

The Results of The Business Architect Programs Speak
Ryan ran a carpentry business, his turnover was $350k, his take home $75k…ouch $26 per hour, he learnt he was paying his apprentices more because his work ethic and quality finishes were boosting his brand and sales, or so he thought…
The reality was, he was short on time. He was booked out 5 months in advance and was losing money on the forward projects because his target audience was not meeting the returns he needed and his team was taking up his time with questions and supervision.
Flick the Switch Consulting started at the beginning with margins, then systems and leadership for his team who stepped up with incentives, we increased his sales and customer appreciation, amended the marketing and scaled his business so he could change his role within the business and other projects.
His returns were triple the cost of investment. A great return for his first year…
Margret ran a marketing business however she was attracting anyone who needed her services because she could handle anything.
Unfortunately she ran out of time to focus on those projects which provided the greatest returns even with offshore VA’s helping her and was paying herself too little for the quality work she was producing.
Flick the Switch Consulting helped her realign with her vision, who she truly wanted to work with and why, what this would [provide her and her family at home as well as her own downtime which hadn’t experienced in over a 2 years….
The outcome was doubling her monthly returns allowing her to step back, train her VA’s more effectively and have more time for herself. Her next step will be to streamline her marketing to an online program with increased margins meaning greater returns per time allocated. Margret is in a good position moving into 2021.
