3x Your Business without 10x'ing Your Headache
Lots of people promise rapid business growth but even in those rare cases where they do deliver the growth, they rarely address whether you’re actually better off for the growth.
Whether it’s the revenue vs. profit distinction or the life vs. business dilemma, the whole package isn’t considered. If your business is growing but you’re not better off – personally, professionally, and financially – something is awry.
I’ve been working with entrepreneurs, founders, and small business owners for nearly a decade to make sure their businesses work better – for them, their teammates, their customers, and their ecosystem. I’m a cross between a business architect and a business mechanic; I design business models to fit your goals and I make the business you have work better. My knacks are strategy execution, positioning, team-building, and strategic customer development.
But you probably aren’t reading this page thinking “I have a strategy execution problem.” You’re more likely coming with questions like:
- Strategy questions: What’s the best way to achieve my business goals and, knowing that, how the hell do I go about doing it?
- Marketing and sales questions: How do I create something that makes me and my business stand out so our right people find us and become customers? And how do I get them to buy it?
- Operations questions: What systems, processes, workflows, and practices do I need so that I can work smarter and more profitably?
- Money questions: How do I make the best use of the money I’m earning to grow the business, pay myself, and build long-term wealth?
- Leadership and management questions: How do I find, hire, train, integrate, pay, and lead the right people – and the right amount of people – to run and grow the business?
Just about any challenge or opportunity you face will fall into one of those core buckets.
I’m one of those rare business strategists and thinkers whose genius is being able to see the forest AND the trees simultaneously. More importantly, though, I’m able to co-create real, relevant, and doable solutions for you. There’s very little “one size fits all” nonsense, as well, because that approach builds common, unremarkable, me-too businesses that don’t work for their owners.
You might be wondering why I chose 3x growth rather than the more audacious 10x. Two reasons: 1) I don’t make promises I can’t keep and 2) 10x pushes a bias for certain types of businesses, many of which people don’t actually want to be in or own. Sure, many of my clients experience more growth than 3x from our work together, but it comes as a happy byproduct of the core work we’re doing.
I have a few different programs that address your needs in different ways. I look forward to supporting you; really, I love what I do and the people I get to do it with. Reach out if you have any questions.
Services and Programs
A Momentum Accelerator Consultation is a 1/2 day strategy session where we identify, strategize, and build a plan to address the biggest growth challenge or opportunity for your business. It’s the option to go with if you’re needing to review/formulate your core business strategy, update or rework your annual plans, rethink your total customer journey, develop a hiring (or delegation!) plan, make an actual marketing strategy, and so on. You’ll walk away with individualized insights and strategies that you can start putting into place right away to accelerate the momentum of your business. This is a virtual session unless you’re willing to jam with me in Portland, Oregon. (Starting at $2500)
The Momentum Intensive program is for you if you’re ready to dig in and get some serious momentum in your business. I’ll work one-on-one with you for six months on your most high-value opportunities and high-priority challenges. We break through plateaus, solve long-term problems, and typically set the stage to 3x your business. (Why not 10x? Because that type of growth is a good sell but not sustainable for most people.) (Starting at $1500/mo)
Two-Day Strategy Retreats: If you’re looking to get clarity, momentum, and results fast, working with me for two days is your best bet. We’ll do a business audit, prepare a strategic roadmap, and work through the specifics of what steps you’ll need to take to implement the roadmap. Up to 3 other teammates may join us. Most clients choose to be treated by us in Portland, Oregon, but we’ll discuss whether it’s better for you to host me. (Starting at $7500)
Executive Coaching for Accomplished Entrepreneurs: Businesses in the $1M–$10M revenue range (or with more than 100k subscribers) are in the messy middle between founder-centric and systems-centric, but the founder’s reaching the end of their ability to drive the car like Fred Flintstone (it moves only when their feet are peddling). You may not quite feel comfortable with calling yourself an executive, but you’re facing executive challenges more so than purely entrepreneurial challenges. Learn more here.
