Who We Work With

Clients come to us when they are ready to scale their company for growth, train, build or expand a winning internal team, or they are experiencing difficulty moving the company forward and upward.

We primarily work with service companies already in business past the startup phase (3-5 years into operations). Industries include Accounting, Consulting, Design, Engineering, Technology, Recruiting, Training, Insurance, Publishing, Media, Construction, PR, Legal, Healthcare, Financial, Venture Capital, Hospitality, Travel, Entertainment, Sports, Fitness, Associations, and Tax. We also work with select product/manufacturing companies in Cosmetics, Retail and Beauty who are ready to build a business around a product or invention on a case by case basis.

 

One final word about who we work with. If you are in a place of financial or emotional desperation (you absolutely NEED something to work NOW to pull your business through or you’ll lose it all), then we will not work with you. If you constantly make excuses and come up with reasons why you cannot complete tasks, we will not work with you. This is a long standing policy in that protects us and the client. We work with clients who are ready and able to take action and are in a position to implement. It wouldn’t be ethical or responsible of us to take clients who would be placed under further financial burden by working with us. And it would be unfair to us to work with a client who is in a place of resistance. Nothing gets accomplished for either party.

 

Types of Strategies

We provide customized strategies for clients including operations strategy (making sure the internal functions of your business have repeatable, scalable, efficient processes in place, infrastructure, revenue, business model, delivery & fulfillment, supply chain), revenue strategy (monetization, revamping your pricing for profitability, turn money losing products & services into revenue generating, direct vs. indirect income, and plugging income leaks), staffing strategy (planning and hiring of employees and recruitment systems & processes), expansion strategy (introduction of new products/services, existing product/service optimization, raising capital, expansion, succession), and customer strategy (acquisition, vetting, target market identification, sales process, & retention). We’re here to help you get clarity and an actionable plan in place to help your business grow.

 

Areas of Focus

Here are the different areas within a business we have worked with our clients on, each with explanations of areas of concern for the clients. Naturally, a client may be experiencing one specific problem area, or have several in each category or across categories. Keep in mind this is a sample of some of the work we’ve done.
