How Does it Work?
Typically we work with clients for 3-4 months, meeting weekly (virtually) and working through the 5 Business Questions™ together. Through brainstorming, facilitation, training, and advising, we help you formulate on your business in a whole new way and we build the easy business plan together. This frees you up to run your business and execute on activities as needed at pace that is dictated by you! And you get the support of team mate that has the experience and training to navigate these issues successfully.
Your advisor serves as your guide, an invested, caring member of your team – to supplement your business with skillsets and experience that may be lacking to help your business grow and thrive while building a strong foundation for the future! And then…you’re off and ready to have fun and execute on the plan on your own! And if you get stuck or need help with the next phase, we’ll be there with you again. Small businesses should not be dependent on coaches or consultants indefinitely! We want to educate, guide, support and empower small business owners and their teams to be self-sufficient!
MONTHLY FLAT FEE
We want clients to feel like we’re a part of the team; fully engaged, fully available, “all-in” members of the team. Flat fee engagements create a more fluid working relationship without any nickel & diming.
Perhaps you have specific areas that need some help and a few hours is all you need. We are committed to working businesses of all sizes and stages and can design a custom engagement structured to meet your needs.
eCOURSES & WORKSHOPS
Businesses on tight budgets may not be ready to engage with an advisor so learning through eCourses and Workshops may be more feasible.
