Why you should work with me
Only 15% of all small business startups in the United States survive beyond year five. I beat these odds four times!
Schedule a private one-on-one session with me today. Allow me to show you how I build a startup for profitability and sustainability. Create a Startup Plan for success.
What is a Startup Plan?
A methodology designed for the small business owner to get the most out of their investment. It's a complete picture of where you are today and where you want your business to be one year from now. It includes steps you need to take to reach your goals.
Whether you launched your business years ago or yesterday, this method will work for you.
Through private one-on-one coaching sessions I will show you how I built and grew four successful companies. In one of them, sales reached over $40M throughout its life.
I will teach how to design the process and direction for your business strategy. It identifies how to make decisions, allocates the proper resources and determines how priorities are set. It may also include a marketing and sales plan, financial management processes and ways to measure success.
More than 40% of businesses fail due to no or limited market. I will personally work with you to determine if there is and how to integrate into a new market.
There are three personal one-on-one types of coaching sessions I offer:
- Intro Session.
- Create a 1 year strategy in 6 weeks.
- Month by Month Checklist. Are you on track?
An Introductory Session is a great place to start. In 90 minutes together we will aim your business in the right direction.
Creating a 1 year strategy in 6 weeks is a perfect solution to complete a deep dive into your business and create a one year plan. It's a great place to establish where you are now and determine where you want to be in one year.
Month by Month Checklist is a great program if you already have a business plan and implementation strategy for the next year. Together we can review your progress and revise your tactics accordingly.
