When I first met Baz of Metric Services (Leicester) Limited, I asked him what he wanted from his business. He said he wanted to see two things: a regular amount of cash in the bank account & he wanted to be able to indulge his passion of rally driving. After 18 months of working together he purchased his new dream rally car and the bank account is consistently over the cash target he was looking for.

The business was growing rapidly mainly due to the long hours invested by the owner, however the profit was not necessarily increasing at the same speed. Working together we looked at how to continue to grow the business and the profitability without Baz getting any busier personally. So we focused on margins & pricing.
