Stephen Covey – ‘Begin With The End In Mind’


In the words of Stephen Covey, we “begin with the end in mind”. We work with businesses who are actively seeking business growth. We focus on the delivery of professional and pro-active accounting, financial management and corporate advisory services to reach our clients’ goals as part of their team. We also work with other trusted advisors to ensure there is a comprehensive brains trust supporting your business to ensure your business grows and prospers. Advivo commit to this approach to the extent of having their Managing Director Leon Stephan’s core focus on creating and continuously improving processes, financial resources and tools as well as strategic alliances and networking opportunities to add to the value offered to you by Advivo’s entire team.

We choose to not have the distraction of a large client base of PAYG clients so we can focus on making you and your business more successful through regular monitoring and review of your financial results at monthly or quarterly meetings. We take the time to understand your current situation and work out where you want to be in the future. We also develop a business improvement plan that will help you and your business reach this goal, educating and empowering you along the way.


Advivo is committed to becoming an accountable team member in your business, knowing as much about your operations, corporate and marketing challenges as possible to assist you in reaching your strategic goals. We achieve this through scheduling regular monthly or quarterly meetings to review future forecasts as well as recent results.  This can identify areas requiring attention before they become issues, brings greater discipline, accountability and regularity to affairs, as well as providing an opportunity to explain, educate and develop real working relationships that achieves results for you and your business.

Where possible, we review the work required and quote up front so our fees are transparent and predictable to assist with your cash flow. Our clients love the certainty of costs for cash flow, but most importantly it gives you unlimited communication with your advisor for a fixed monthly fee.  This means you can ask us questions at any time, without the fear of a large invoice arriving in the mail.  Naturally, removing this enables us to focus on growing your business.

During the first few weeks of our engagement, we analyse your current situation and then create theoretical models of the business from sales through to cash flow and resources. We test these assumptions upon which the business is found and take the perspective “if this was our business, how would we treat it?’

It is this combined approach that sets us apart from other accounting firms and delivers great results for you and your business.  Advivo constantly strives to provide additional value to empower and educate our clients through regular seminars on relevant and timely issues which also provide networking opportunities with like-minded business owners for you and your team. We also develop strong strategic alliances with complementary services that support and assist your business in meeting your objective of business growth.
