Growth Challenges/
Creative Solutions

It’s hard to grow.

You reach a certain revenue level and can’t seem to break through that level…sometimes for years.  And you’re not really sure why. You’ve tried a half dozen different strategies and tactics with little or no results.

But no matter how hard you try, self-assessment is, at best, very difficult; at worst, impossible.  You need an objective look.  One that will understand your business, in-depth, both its strengths and its weaknesses and not be afraid to call out obvious roadblocks that exist, that are causing problems or raising issues, regardless of longstanding policies, procedures or people.  Nothing is sacred!

But just as important, be able to put an executable plan together that leverages those strengths and corrects those weaknesses, removes the roadblocks and focuses the company on the changes that will enable both revenue and profit growth.

What this takes are two things: a commitment by ownership and senior management to change…and the Entrepreneur’s Yoda’s unique experience, process and services.

A unique, virtual 90-minute monthly coaching, teaching and peer advisory group where we match up non-competitive businesses of similar size ranges but in different industries. Each roundtable participant raises their key issues with the group, who provide feedback from their own experiences with similar situations and “The Entrepreneur’s Yoda,” provides advice, counsel and lessons from my experience.  Quarterly, there is an outside speaker, who brings a specific functional view on particular growth problems, issues and solutions from their breadth of industry experience.

Through my own companies, multiple turnarounds, and with more than 300 clients over the years, I’ve helped countless small businesses achieve value far beyond what they ever expected, growing their business.
