A great business planning process gets to the heart and soul of your business. Upon completion of pre-work we’ll have a greater understanding of your vision and core values in order to facilitate a four-hour planning session to help you create a clear one-page business plan.


The outcome of this service is to identify and prioritise goals, both short term and long term, create strategies to achieve your goals, enable you to review actual performance against targets and establish a 90-day action plan to address immediate and critical issues.

“I’ve been working with HJL since I set up my business in 2010. At that stage I didn’t know anything about how to set up company or what my tax obligations were so it was a godsend when a friend recommended HJL. Leigh explained everything in terms I understood then took care of it all for me. My business accounting runs like clockwork – I’m using Xero (which is truly awesome) and HJL provide ongoing business advice and day-to-day support. I’m really happy!”
