What Is the
Business Exceleration Blueprint?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have an instruction guide to setting up and operating your business?
Not the technical things covered in legal and accounting, but the things that have be done every day to ensure you and your business operates as it should.
And how “should” your business operate? Our answer to that is…
Without You Being There!
What is a Business?
A business for many people is more of a “busyness”. Constantly in demand, the Business Owner has more to do than the time to do it. They are also under pressure to keep all the pieces moving including all the compliance and reporting.
The Business Owner in many businesses is also the centrepiece. They have built the business around themselves, especially if they started from scratch.
This is because they did everything initially, and then gradually passed things on as the business grew. All this is very normal, but it is not what a business should be.
In this case the owner has a JOB. Yes it is their business but they are working for themselves instead of someone else. So how can that be changed?
By looking at a business from the complete opposite angle. It should not require you to work IN it…just ON it. And that is the basis of how to start to change what you may have today into something much better in the future.
What do you need to do differently to make that happen?
This is where years of experience working with 1,000s of Business Owners has it’s benefit. This experience has shown us this is not an overnight simple solution.
It is also not just about a few changes.
There are potentially 100’s of things that need to be done differently. And that is why so many people struggle to get their business to the point they initially imaged it would be.
We learn our skill or trade but do we learn how a business operates?
And that is why we developed the Business Exceleration Blueprint.

About the Blueprint
What are the 5 stages?
The Business Exceleration Blueprint is the closest you will come to finding an instruction manual for a business.
It was designed and built by Ben Fewtrell and David Carlin over many years working with businesses.
It contains all the stages a business, and it’s Owner typically go through to achieve a business that works without them.
The 5 stages build on each other. It’s like building a house. You have to secure a Foundation before you start build the frames, and so on until the final steps of paint and colour.
The other key part about the Blueprint is it is your guide for working ON your business. Most people are so busy working IN their business that they don’t get to work on the things that ensures the business is growing and sustainable.
This is also a process that takes time. Initially you will need to find the time to do this. A couple of hours each week will build until you spend most of your time working on the business.
The resources in the Blueprint include:
- Online training and education courses
- Guided pathways in each stage
- Over 250 specific steps to be followed and completed
- More than 1,000 ideas and strategies to implement into your business
- Over 1,000 resources to learn from and use in your business
All of these are available in an online purpose built educational HUB that is accessible by all members 24/7.
The Foundation stage is about gaining control of your business, securing cash flow and creating the profitability that will enable you to invest for growth. For most businesses this will mean get out of chaos, or at least feeling more in control of what is happening rather than being on the “receiving” end.
Getting control of your time, cashflow and plans are the essentials in this stage.
Once your foundations are set, it’s time to grow your business further and learn how to create predictable cash flow.
The Growth stage is about working on your unique business idea and maximizing your sales and profits.
Now your business has a solid foundation, predictable cash flow and profitability, it is time to invest in creating systems and utilize technology to streamline your processes.
The Optimise stage is about automating repetitive tasks and turning your business into a well-oiled profit making machine.
In the Transition stage you will build your leadership and management team, you’ll move from working IN your business to working ON your business.
A successful business will always rely on building a great team, but for you to move away from the day to day operations of your business you will need to build your own leadership team. Your leadership team should comprise of the most talented people you can attract, as they are there to help drive your business.
In Diversify your business no longer relies on you being there, and thus you’re able to focus on new opportunities.
This is where you only work ON the business if you choose. In other words, if you don’t do anything, your business will still perform profitably and predictably.
What stage are you working towards?
One of the biggest challenges for many Business Owners is what needs to be done and where to start.
We often discover that there are things many people have not realised they need.
And some of those things are essential to grow a business.
So what are the first steps?
We carefully constructed a Quiz to help you determine where you currently are on your journey.
Depending on your responses the results will provide you with an idea of where you are at, and what you should work on next.
It is free and takes about 10 minutes to complete.
