Smart Strategies for Small Businesses
My passion is helping business owners connect with the resources they need to succeed. I have a diverse background that got me to where I am now. We can chat about that over a couple of soy chai teas sometime. What it boils down to is this: I value people, relationships and connection. I wouldn’t be in business today without those things. I use all the tools in my arsenal to help you build and run your business while minimizing the fluff and frustration you don’t need to deal with. Focus your energy on what you do best – we’ll figure out how you can spend less time on the rest.

While there are systems and processes that work across a variety of industries and companies, I won’t push you to follow anyone else’s formula or process. I’m here to help you perfect your process and create a custom plan that’s unique to your strengths, and the needs of your company and customers.
When working with me, you get the benefit of my 12+ years of entrepreneurial experience, including over eight years spent helping folks like you organize and improve their businesses. I’ve been passionate about collaboration and connection since I launched my first business in 2006, which means you can also tap into the experience of my team members and colleagues to ensure you get exactly what you need.

Frequently Asked Questions
Any time is a great time, really. In an ideal world, you reach out to me when you're starting out. I'd help get you set up from the get go. Every now and then as your business grows, you may reach out for more help, tweaks, fine tuning, etc.
That said, we don't live in an ideal world do we? Most of my clients have been in business for a couple of years. They usually hire me when one of two things is happening: 1) Business is growing and they are having trouble keeping track of opportunities and everything that's going on. They can't handle anything more without getting their act together. Sometimes, they have systems but just haven't figured out if they are using them properly. 2) Business isn't so hot and they feel bad about what they haven't done or what they've let slip through the cracks. They missed a proposal deadline. They forgot to follow up with an ideal prospect. They have no idea how much they are spending on their systems…or if they have the right systems…
Short answer: Yesterday would have been better than today. But, today is better than tomorrow.
Every client I work with is different and that’s one of the things I love about what I do.
My prices are typically broken down into packages, monthly fees or project prices. The best thing to do is contact me and let me know what you need help with. From there, I can help you identify a package or pricing structure that fits your situation. If you’re looking for a baseline idea – my strategy and assessment sessions are $199 when purchased a la carte and my packages start at $400 (with assessments included).
You can also read more about the options by clicking here.
If you know you have a lot of places where your business needs support, but you don’t know what to start with, I can help. I suggest scheduling a Business Systems Assessment. During that time, we’ll discuss your problem areas and I’ll make suggestions about what you should focus on first (and second and third and….). Contact me and I’ll let you know if an assessment session is right for you.
That depends. Are you a DIYer? Are you confident that you can take my recommended solutions and act on them? If so, I have no problem telling you what to do :-). A Business Systems Assessment will get you going in the right direction.
On the other hand, if you’re pressed for time, love to delegate, or if the concept of setting up systems makes you want to run off and hide on a tropical island, then I can set it all up (registrations, settings, any initial data needed, etc) and then show you how to use everything. A Kick Start Package is the way to go if this sounds like you.
What kind of decision maker are you? What’s your schedule like? I’ve worked with people who can make quick decisions (or defer to my suggestions), and schedule their appointments over the course of a week or two, while I work away in the background. They are off and running in just a few days. Other clients need more time to decide, want to test out a few options, run things by their teams, etc. Or, they might be busy with travel or projects of their own. In these situations, we may get everything done in a month or two. Work at your pace, no need to rush. If you’re purchasing a package, you have 3-6 months to use your hours (depending on which package you select). I’ve also had clients that have worked with me for over 5 years – we connect a few times a year for check ins and tune ups. It varies based on what you need and what serves you.
