Consultant vs. Coach

A business COACH works with you to develop the skills you already have. They bring out the best in you.  

A business CONSULTANT is an expert ADVISOR you turn to for help with your business.  They teach you skills you don’t know.  They are well versed in business strategy which they use to help you gauge the direction and scalability of your current business. They analyze the goals you have for your business and help you create a plan of action required to actually accomplish those goals and reach the NEXT LEVEL!

Here's What BUSINESS OWNERS Are Saying . . . 


Kathy Ameche

"Why didn't I meet you earlier? Darlene has helped me focus on my value proposition, identifying customers and most importantly how to make money. Regardless of the level of business ownership you are at, her no nonsense approach is of great value.

Mark Seven

“Darlene has a remarkable instinct for business strategy of not only knowing WHAT improvements to make, but WHEN and HOW to implement them. In the 20+ years I’ve known her, she has always provided us with useful management advice including accounting methodology, personnel and legal issues, contemporary marketing foresight, even spot-on location suggestions.

Kathryn Weidman, Ph.D.

"Darlene has MUCH to offer small business owners, regardless of whether they are just starting out or have been around for years. She has owned several types of businesses herself and has both broad experience and a unique approach to offer. Moreover, her style is refreshing. She doesn’t waste your time! She zeroes-in on the issues and talks-turkey to help the business owner confront the barriers to greater success.
