Why Your Business Could Go Bankrupt

“I’m scared of losing my business”.

And it’s often because of a fear that the work is going to dry up.

But what if we told you this sort of thing doesn’t just come out of nowhere. 

If you know what you’re looking for there’s signs that your business is in trouble. 

And things you can do to prevent it. 

So Tony & Phil recorded a training on the subject. 


  1. Spot the warning signs that your business is in trouble 
  2. Learn to plan proactively around business difficulties 
  3. Develop a marketing plan which attracts automatic clients
