1:1 business coaching

When is something an investment and when is it an expense? When you invest in one to one business coaching will it pay off? If spending money helps you make money it is an investment, if spending doesn’t help and costs you money it is an expense. When you are making the decision to hire a business coach, it may seem a daunting task, but you will find it will pay off. Typically, my clients see an 8 to 10 times return on their investment. The money they spend makes them even more money. How? Well you will achieve your goals faster, stand out above the competition, earn more money and do less work. Coaching accelerates and magnifies your business results. With motivation, encouragement, persistence and direction, you accomplish much more, much sooner than when you are ‘winging it’. Our goal is to get your business to run without you. In essence, create an ATM machine that delivers money to you and your family.

90 Day Planning

If you fail to have a plan, you may actually be planning to fail. 90 day planning gives you the recipe for defining and documenting your goals, setting timelines, and increase chances of hitting your targets and objectives. No plan is the recipe for potential disaster. Part of the planning process is thinking about your future. What would you like to achieve in the next 5 to 10 years… 3 years… 1 year from now? Once you write it down the reticular activating system (RAS) part of your brain goes to work. This is the part of the brain that filters out noise and helps you focus on what is most important. This activation of your RAS will take you further than you ever thought possible. You will gain agility, clarity and increase competitiveness in yourself and your business.

Mastermind Master Class Training

What if you were part of a group that elevated your business and your life? Folks at the highest level of success will tell you that they did not do it on their own. Top business people, entertainers and athletes all have mentors and coaches to help them get to the top. Mastermind Master Class Training is just what you need to get to the top of your field. Here a group of CEOs and business owners get together each month and share connections and help one another solve issues and learn how to improve their companies. Tony Robbins once said, “The quality of a person’s life is most often a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group.” This is even truer today.

Value Builder Program

There are 8 things that an acquirer or investor looks for when buying or investing in a company. They are: Financial, Growth, Independence, Cash Flow, Recurring Revenue, Uniqueness, Customer relationships, and owner’s role. The Value Builder Program shows you where you are now and how to improve on each of these and create your best company. A business that is easier to run and more valuable when you are ready to move on to the next stage of your life. We start by assessing where you are now giving you a 0 to 100 score and your scores relationship to your peers (competition). Then help you devise your path to get you and your company closer to 100. When you arrive, your company will get more offers and higher offers when you are ready.


PREScore is an assessment that check on whether or not you are ready to exit your business, personally. In fact, the name stands for Personal Readiness to Exit Score. One of the four attributes to get a read on is how your team will be treated in the future. What will they be doing after you exit? We probably have become quite attached to our team. We are probably hesitant to just cut them loose and have them hope for the best. We are afraid to tell employees that we plan to exit while at the same time asking them to join our firm. Can we be happy selling our company out from under them? Well, there is not ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer to these questions, however, we must think proactively about our teams future as we ponder our own. Find out for yourself.

Freedom Point

There is a point in everyone’s life when they wish that they were truly free. This is the point when you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. Wouldn’t that be great!! As a business owner you have paid your dues and now perhaps your business is ready to pay you back. Once your business has become the asset you always hoped it would be it might make sense to avail yourself to the proceeds. In fact, you may be potentially past the point of not having to work and actually rising the freedom that you have tried so hard to obtain. You may have unconsciously passed The Freedom Point, that point where the net proceeds of selling your business would garner enough for you to live out the rest of your life in comfort (in the manner you would like to become accustomed). Right now you could be risking it all. What would happen if one of those ‘black swan’ events affect your business? We could easily have another 2008 or Covid where you could lose it all. Don’t let that happen to you. Find out if now is the time to do something about it.

8 Drivers of Business Value

When you started in your business life, your investments probably did not add up to too much. You had a wage or a salary and likely you were able to save a bit but spent most of what you earned just to get by. If you wanted to earn more you only had to work more hours. Unfortunately, in doing so, you gave up your life. The trouble with that is you have a JOB. JOB stands for Just Over Broke. You got better and better at you job, maybe saved more and invested more, and then you realized that you should start your own business. At the beginning, as a percentage of your net worth, your business was only a small portion. But as your business grew you became more and more dependent on your business for cash flow and as an asset. There are 8 drivers of business value. When you take your Value Builder Assessment you will see where your business falls in each category. We take a look at the 8 Drivers of Business Value and help you improve them. In doing so, your business becomes more valuable. It may be more valuable than you home, your stocks and bonds and all you other investments combined. Let’s find out where you are now and where your business could be with a little effort. It will be worth every minute spent!
