DAN GRIFFITHS

Dan started Principal Compliance in July 2020 and has 10 years experience specialising in health and safety.

THE CHALLENGE

Before joining BBB, Dan's main challenge was executing his brilliant ideas.

“I had left full-time employment for a year, and wanted to start my own company. I had massive ambitions and I really wanted to do well."

"In the beginning I got lucky, with a few different clients, however I found myself an employee at my own company."

"I was thinking that social media was the way to get customers in. I wasn’t keen on sales, I wasn’t growing the business apart from referrals."

"The biggest thing was that I wasn’t a ‘business owner’ – I had the great ideas but no time to execute them. I was focused heavily on delivery and not charging enough. I felt pretty isolated. There were only a couple of people I could talk to. Going from a senior management role in my previous company where there were lots of peers, it was different - there was no one. It was difficult."

"I was really good at the trade and the job but the business side was challenging."

THE RESULT

Dan stumbled across George's Levelling up with George Swift

podcast, and signed up for a with BBB workshop

“I had been listening to George's on the podcast for a good couple of months, because there are not many of those types of podcasts out there and definitely not that many that are realistic. They are all either marketing heavy or for large corporates. I thought it was good, signed up for the workshop and the rest is history."

"It was real, no-bullshit, no illusion that it was a quick fix. Right from the start we were given realistic expectations: "You aren’t going to get anywhere if you're not going to work hard", stuff like that. And it's all in a language that resonates with me."

“If I hadn't joined BBB I would still have been relying on luck and not really knowing what to do.”

Dan wasted no time in getting involved and implementing everything he learnt at BBB.

“The whole club is welcoming and friendly, and it’s really well structured. It’s normal people wanting to work, and work hard. That’s what I like. Everyone’s got the right attitude."

"I really like all the access you get to the content right at the start. I binged it. They offered simple solutions that were easy to implement."

BBB has given Dan a fresh perspective.

"It’s the clarity – you can see where you need to go. I’ve now got a plan."

“I actually quite like sales now. I think it's good, and I'm so much more confident."

"I'm so much happier and the time I am spending working hard on the business and delivering is so much more effective."

Dan's advice to anyone considering joining BBB.

"I genuinely believe that if you join, you will skip five to ten years of struggling and navigating through shit. It might be something like five years for every one year you spend at BBB."

"I know people that are twenty years in, doing the same stuff – they don't do any sales they've just relied heavily on referrals and things falling on their lap. Twenty years later, and life is the same. If you want to skip the shit, join BBB."

"If, as a small business owner, you think that marketing and posting intermittently on LinkedIn is going to bring clients in, it's not. You need support and guidance. And if you don't have accountability, you ain't going nowhere. That's what I would say to anyone".

"The membership quickly pays for itself if you work hard, fully commit and set goals right, within a couple of months, you're getting a return. It’s a no-brainer."

"I'm so much happier and the time I am spending working hard on the business and delivering is so much more effective."
