Four day week results in revenue quadrupling for business growth specialist

Revenue has quadrupled at a Birmingham business support firm after it implemented a 4-day working week in 2019.

The Entrepreneurs Circle (EC), which was founded by entrepreneur and best-selling business author Nigel Botterrill in 2011, has also seen membership grow by 400% to 3,000 members in that same period.

It supports ambitious entrepreneurs and owners to grow their businesses to where they want them to be, with results revealing how 28% of these companies had more than doubled their revenue in the first year of membership.

Botterrill said: “I had looked at the 4-day week for a few years pre-Pandemic but there is no doubt that it was the catalyst to actually implementing the move and making it a key part of how we work.

“The results have been nothing short of spectacular for us in terms of attracting and retaining high-calibre people and in turn, growing our membership. Interestingly, we are now seeing many of our members embracing the 4-day- week concept after they have seen the impact it has had on EC”.

Having built 10 separate £1m+ businesses and authored several books, Botterrill now spends his time supporting other entrepreneurs.

“There are so many opportunities out there for entrepreneurs to truly build the business they actually want. Sadly, there are also many business owners who feel that they are “trapped” or as we like to phrase it “stuck in the weeds”.

“I would urge them to carefully consider how they currently spend their working week, especially with regards to how much time they spend IN vs ON the business.

“If they can find that clarity, that focus and then carve out time for simply getting and keeping customers, they will discover there is a whole world of possibilities out there, regardless of the prevailing economy or politics”.
