Making Good Money But Trapped

Why You Can’t Stop Working So Hard In Your Business

Even Though You’re Making Good Money…


Despite the success they’ve achieved, most successful business owners who appear to “have it all” secretly feel trapped, with no idea what to do about it.

If you’re finishing late and starting early, with no time to be there for your family (or the kids' sports and hobbies on the weekend), and your partner is feeling neglected…

You’re not alone.

Your partner might be constantly nagging you about it, or secretly wondering why you don’t take more holidays or when life is going to be easier.

But what do they expect you to do about it?

There’s certainly not enough quality people on the team to do the work, and even if there was they could never do it as well as you.

Sure you’d love to hire more good people, but that just eats up the margins you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

So you put your head down and push ahead while going round in circles thinking:

’How am I supposed to keep a happy family life when there’s so much work to do to make sure my business continues to be successful?’

Maybe you’re like I was, afraid if you take time off because you think things will fall apart.

It’s a valid concern; if you hand the reins over to someone who doesn’t know the ins and outs of your business, things could go south quickly.

Perhaps they’ll upset a key client relationship which you’ve developed meticulously over time, or even lose them?

If you’ve ever plucked up the courage and taken some time off only to come back to drama’s and headaches, then it’s no wonder you’re reluctant to do it again.

I get it. Because I’ve been there.

Your business is going well and making good money, and you don’t want to upset the balance, for fear of the wheels falling off.

So you hang on to those reigns tightly, oversee everything and work long hours in the business getting pulled in every different direction.

No wonder you feel trapped.


Your staff don’t care about the business like you do

They’re cutting corners around client work, because they lack work ethic. There’s no way you can trust them to own the work, as they simply won’t do what you do.

You’re constantly putting out fires

And dealing with personal problems, when you just want them to have the same commitment and work ethic in driving the business as you have.

Sloppy mistakes keep getting made

Which cost the company money, because team members aren’t following procedures, resulting in you having to foot the bill.

Your clients demand too much

And don’t see the value in what you bring them.

There’s not enough hours in the day

And you’re forced to work harder and longer than anyone else.

If any of this sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve fallen into the trap of believing these 3 common myths which are stopping you from living your dream life…

Myth # 1: If I Take My Foot Off the Pedal, My Business Will Fall Apart & I’ll Lose Everything


After investing your blood, sweat, and tears into making your business a success, it's only natural to want to be involved in every aspect of the operation.

But when you don’t have a clear pathway of growth, this not only leads to burnout, you’ll eventually hit the ‘stagnation ceiling.’

The solution is to build a robust business with the right team, systems and procedures in place. while working on your own belief systems and structures so you can trust what you’ve built will stand the test of time.

This is how you step away without feeling like your business is going to fall apart.

This is how you can take a break, then come back refreshed and ready to tackle the business with vitality.

Remember, trusting your team to handle things in your absence is an important part of being a successful business owner because if you're always looking over their shoulder, they'll never be able to truly grow and reach their potential.

Myth # 2: My Staff Don’t Understand the Intricacies and Can’t Serve The Clients as Well as Me

It’s normal to think you’re the only one who truly understands the complexities of your industry, and your staff couldn't possibly provide the same level of service.

Yet in reality, your team often has a much better understanding of the day-to-day operations of your business than you.

Think about it; they are on the front lines, dealing directly with customers and clients.

They know what questions to ask, what problems need to be solved, and how to provide an exceptional level of service.

Letting go of control so your business can thrive boils down to 2 things:

  • Implementing the right structures, training, procedures and systems to allow them to thrive.
  • Working on the inner dialogue and belief systems you have as to why you think it isn’t possible.

I promise you this, there are dozens of businesses in your industry and area operating without the owners input…

Question is - will you be one of them?


Perhaps instead of thinking your staff can't possibly understand or serve clients as well as you, think about what might be possible if you started giving them the credit they deserve?

Everyone thrives in an environment of positive reinforcement, you just need to have the proper structures in place and it becomes effortless…

Myth # 3: Every Customer is a Good Customer And Contributes to My Bottom Line


The old adage ‘the customer is always right’...

Is actually dead wrong.

Some clients are bad payers and need constant chasing to get them to make a simple payment.

Others are high maintenance, demanding constant attention and making ongoing changes even once the project is completed.

Some are just plain rude and disrespectful, making it virtually impossible for your team to keep a positive attitude, which kills morale.

The reality is, you’re far better off firing your worst clients as they suck huge amounts of energy from you and your team.

Once you remove them you have vast amounts of time and energy to put into:

  • Your fast paying, easy to work with happy and loyal clients who deserve the best service anyway.
  • Finding more ideal clients and exploding your business growth, success and income.

Just think - how much could your business boom if you spent the same time on growing it, as you do on putting out fires?

After so many years on the rat wheel it’s easy to feel like your dreams will never come to fruition.

It’s how I felt many years ago, and it’s precisely what Brett Hall was going through when we first met…

“I wish I’d done this 5 or even 10 years ago”

Brett learnt that letting go of the reins actually allowed his business to grow. He gave himself the space and time freedom to step away from his business and spend more time with his family. And everything shifted…

His biggest regret? He now wishes he had done this 5 or even 10 years ago!

Andrew Booth is another case in point…

"75% increase in turnover in 18 short months with a whopping 40% increase in average sale value"

In just 18 short months, Andrew’s turnover has grown 75% as a result of our work together. What’s more, his average sale has jumped by a whopping 40%.

He’s now on target to double his business turnover within 2 years while getting off the tools, handing over all inspections to his team, and bringing on a manager to run the entire business - so he doesn’t even need to step foot in the door.

Check out his testimonial.

Reg Boston from Bellagio Homes transformed his business in just 12 months…

“Just 1 year in and we’ve never been in a better, clearer space - I’m stronger and more effective”

After working together for just 1 year, he’s never been in a better, clearer space to seize upcoming opportunities and continue their stellar business growth.

I could go on and on.

The reality is your business can become the dream you first set out to achieve. All you have to do is follow these 5 processes:


Shift your mindset and cultivate new beliefs.

Sustainable growth, increased productivity, and time freedom is all possible. We all want to make more money in business, but how do you do it without having to work harder? There is a science and a process, which is precisely what I’ll show you.


Implement the right systems, procedures, structures and leadership style for the stage of the business you are in right now.

Who you need to be as a leader of a business evolves; you’re not the same leader you were in your first 5 years of business. Your style needs to adapt depending on the stage. We’ll identify the stage and style of systems procedures and leadership you need to implement for where you’re at today.


Gain the certainty of a clear pathway and structure, which gives the confidence and courage to make the right decisions.

Gaining clarity not only gives you certainty, but builds confidence because you understand precisely what steps to take to build your dream vision. Being crystal clear on the destination makes decision making simple.


Discover why you're not getting what you say you want, and why you’re not doing the work you know you need to

You must understand how and why your neuropsychology is in conflict with your dreams. Once you are clear on how to hack your neurobiology, you’ll bring your subconscious in alignment with your goals, and stop self-sabotaging yourself.


Develop the number one personal success skill for scaling a business: self-awareness.

There is no more important skill to cultivate in life and in business. Being aware of who you are, your tendencies, destructive patterns, vulnerabilities, fears, doubts and subconscious beliefs gives you back total power over choosing the life and business you love - and it’ becomes as easy as choosing dinner from a menu.

Following these processes in business (and life) will give you total certainty and confidence, while alleviating stress and fear.

When you're not enjoying your business…

You Retract, Withdraw, and Don’t
Do the Work You Need to

However when you reconnect with your vision and gain a new understanding of what’s possible, it gives you a new lease of life.
You’ll enjoy the journey again and be motivated to achieve more than ever.
And that’s how you create an amazing business with complete financial freedom, while enjoying time off with your loved ones.

Why Should You Work With Me?

Having over 33 years of experience in business (which I’ve now stepped away from, because I have it fully managed), I come from real world experience, not a textbook or coaching course.

That experience has allowed me to reach a place of total financial independence and time freedom, thanks to having an automated business that meets my personal needs with little involvement.

I’ve been where you are now, and I’ve achieved the dream - and that’s why I believe I can guide you on the road to success and freedom, so you too can achieve that deep sense of worth that comes with financial independence?

What’s more, as a certified neuro-change practitioner, I understand the human behaviour that drives our results at a very deep level - and I’m able to use innovative neuroscience strategies to evolve personal business leadership.

What Is A ‘Roadblock Removal’ Initial Discussion?

It’s a complimentary friendly chat

There’s absolutely no charge and no pressure. Spend 30 minutes with me, and I'll show you the 3 greatest blocks that are holding your business back.

We’ll discuss your reasons for wanting to create your dream freedom business

I’ll ask you a series of questions to determine precisely where you’re at right now, where you want to go, and what’s been stopping your growth.

We talk in depth about your vision for the future

It’s often the most exciting part of the discussion. If you’re like most people, you can see where we want to get to, you're just not sure the exact steps to take. I’ll answer any questions you have and give you my guidance for the best path to turning your freedom business dreams into a reality.

You will meet with me personally

I’ve sat with dozens of business owners going through what you’re experiencing. I can see in an instant what could take you a lifetime to uncover.

Only then (if you choose to), will we discuss potential next steps

It’s not for everyone, but if you decide it’s right for you to start working together on your business, we can map out a plan for achieving your goals based on your unique vision, personal timeline and situation.

We’ll have a conversation about your obstacles

To get where you want to go, we need to be clear on (and have a strategy for) the obstacles that are in your way. We’ll have an honest discussion about your biggest concerns or worries, what has or is stopping you, and my best perspective on resolving them so you are 100% comfortable with the entire process.

Give me 30 minutes and I’ll take you from overwhelm to clarity. What’s more, you’ll take away three insights and a completely different perspective on what’s possible for you and your business.

Leading up to your initial discussion you’ll probably be feeling unsure about whether this is right for you. You’re curious but you’re probably wondering;

  • ’Is it really possible to get the results in my business?’
  • ‘Will he understand my individual situation and problems?’
  • ’Is it worth the time and money and will I get a return and the results I want’

But I assure you, you’ll walk out with an exact plan to overcoming the challenges you’re facing right now, and moving from where you are to where you want to be.

Now the balls in your court…

Will you continue to do the same thing over and over again hoping it'll get better, while thinking…

"If I Just Work Harder, Get More Clients and Deliver More Value -Eventually it Will Fall into Place"

Will you continue to spin dozens of plates, stressing yourself out in the process?

Remember, without intervention this pattern will keep on running. And like many business owners, you could end up like a rat on a wheel, always chasing the cheese but never quite arriving.

You’ve worked hard for your business, and…

You Deserve to Take More Time Off and Have it Run Itself

Imagine being able to find good people and structure their role so effectively, they become so good they effectively become a ‘clone’ of you.

What if you could develop a leadership style and ethos that inspires your team to take as much responsibility, control and care (with the same work ethic) as if they were the owner of the business themselves?

A business that runs independently of you, day in day out taking care of itself, managed by others yet continuing to bring in the same profits it always has?

It can be done, make no mistake about it.

In fact, in many cases, the work you do ‘ON’ your business rather than ’IN’ your business ultimately produces a more efficient business model producing greater profits than ever before…

…While allowing you to step away and have the time, money and freedom to spend with your loved ones.

That’s my dream and my wish for you and for all of my clients.

To your success,

Torrin Minutillo
