Welcome to The Levels Blog

Welcome to my personal blog, an extension of my book where I provide further insight in to growing your business ‘The Levels’ way. I hope you enjoy your time here and I very much look forward to sharing my business content with you. 


Over the years I have seen some businesses that have fantastic ideas, products or services that just get stuck, stop growing and fade away.

I have seen families and businesses ripped apart by feuds or those that have experienced the classic ‘clogs to clogs in three generations’ whereby the hard work of the original owner is lost in the process of succession.

I have also seen many lovely business owners unable to retire because they are the business and know it will just fall apart if they were to leave. The examples go on and on. It is such a waste of potential, not only for the individuals involved, but also for the business community, economy and wider society.

For the last 14 years, I have been striving to understand this better and help businesses achieve their potential.

On the other hand, I have seen some businesses and owners who have just done it. They have seen and exploited the potential their business has and created sustainable long-term wealth. Their business is exactly where they want it to be.
So what is the difference?

For the last 14 years, I have been striving to understand this better and help businesses achieve their potential. While doing so, I came to realise the importance of the driving forces behind most businesses and identified the stumbling blocks that prevent many entrepreneurs from effectively growing their business. The Levels Framework was born!

At its simplest, it is a manual for growth that focuses on the changes a business should put in place to make the difficult TRANSITION up from a small- to medium-sized company. At its most complex, it’s a guide to challenging and changing your entire way of thinking!

The Levels Framework has been presented to audiences large and small hundreds of times. It has been discussed at length with a wide range of business professionals and has stood up to academic scrutiny. Most importantly, it has been successfully put into practice by growing businesses with fantastic results over the last ten years. To put it simply – it works.
