Sixty Minutes of Business Exercise Will Improve Your Financial Health

An average class at the gym, the train from London to Brighton and an episode of BBC’s Question Time all take sixty minutes. An exciting new business initiative was launched today that guarantees an improved bottom line for CEOs, Business Owners and Managing Directors that takes just sixty minutes, once a week.

The 1-Hour Challenge is now open for free registration and is the first of its kind in the UK, helping participants kick-start their financial year in style with the assurance that an improvement in business direction and strategy, as well as an increased bottom line will result in just one month.

The 1-Hour Challenge encourages participants for one hour a week for four weeks to concentrate on their business rather than in their business thanks to a tailored four- week programme devised specifically for the Challenge.

The programme created exclusively for the 1-Hour Challenge by leading business coaches throughout the UK runs from Monday 22nd March to Friday 30th April 2010 looking at crucial steps towards business success strategies. It then helps participants commit to rolling out actions focused on improving their bottom line through a series of material sent throughout the month.

Laura Ashley-Timms, Director of Coaching for who devised the 1-Hour Challenge explains: "The 1-Hour Challenge was developed for the sole purpose of creating a tailored programme for CEOs, Business Owners and Managing Directors to help balance the pressurised demands of their day-to-day business with just one hour a week working on business success strategies and driving revenue.”

“We understand that everybody is committed to looking at the financial health of their business and ways of continuously improving operations but don’t have the time to do anything about it. The 1-Hour Challenge is a simple, non-committal, low-intensity way to start doing something."

The 1-Hour Challenge is specifically targeted at business leaders and there is no coincidence why it is being launched to coincide with the start of the new financial year.

"Many business leaders want a quick-fix and answers to their problems specifically at this time of year which is where the 1-Hour Challenge comes in. The Challenge is all set to capture the imagination of business people nationwide and promises to not only save you from 2010 economic gloom but make this financial year your best ever,” explains Ashley-Timms.

To take up the 1-Hour Challenge simply register for free on and you will be sent the 1-Hour Challenge Business Success Strategies pack with additional follow up information sent over the following weeks.
