Business Advisory Programs
for impatient entrepreneurs who want to get there faster
Wouldn’t you just love to have some shortcuts?
You already know that building and running your business is hard. You don’t need more information – you need less confusion. Practical, tactical advice and tools that you can use to break through the barriers holding you back from building a great business.
You may be underpricing your products or services because you have trouble selling them – or you’re afraid of losing clients if you raise your prices. Or you’re having trouble putting together a website that really works. Or your messaging may not be attracting the clients you would really like to work with. Or you’re not even sure what your messaging should be.
You could certainly use a few shortcuts. Some know-how, a couple of recipes, some honest feedback and someone to make sure you don’t re-invent the wheel. Someone to hold you accountable and keep you from running after the shiny stuff.
I may be able to help.
How it works
Start with a micro-assessment or phone call to see where you’re at and determine where to go next. These services are free.
Next step is a Breakthrough Session. You will break through the biggest thing holding you back right now, but more importantly we’ll design a roadmap for where you need to go.
Ready for an intensive? Breakthrough Design makes sure you’re building on a solid foundation (Business Model, Brand and Product Ladder), and Breakthrough Revenue gets your business in shape for maximum revenue generation (Marketing, Lead Nurturing, Sales, Delivery and Follow Up).
Advisory services and programs that go as fast as you need them to
Your business is unique – and so is the combination of problems with the constraints, knowledge and tools you have to solve them. You need just the tools and advice to solve the problems you’re dealing with now; but enough of a big picture view to know where this is heading.
My advisory programs are based on the Tornado Method to provide context and years of experience to identify the stuff you need to focus on right now. My job is to make sure you’re working on the right stuff with the right tools; and sometimes that means having to work on you before you can work on your business.
But if you’re able to run faster I will advise faster – in fact, I will go as fast as you can keep up. The Tornado Method provides the context we need to identify your key problems; a portfolio of tools, guides and advice will help you get it done; and a little bit of tough love will keep you on track.
Who do you work with?
I work with solopreneurs and business owners. I specialise in service businesses (though I do work with retail businesses as well). And it doesn’t matter where you live – I run most of my programs in person or online.
My clients include software developers; interior designers; business coaches; sales development professionals; engineering firms; graphic designers and agencies; content marketing specialists; lead generation services; creative strategists; executive recruiters; a concrete company; strategy consultants; life coaches; a documentation services company and a wide-area carbon offset measurement startup.
Here’s what some of them have to say:
Not sure where to start?
You need to get to know me and I need to get to know you. So start with the free stuff to see if I can help you:
Free Micro Assessment
Tell me what you’re struggling with. I will check out your website and do an assessment using the Tornado Method. You get a 2-page report telling you what you look like to the outside world; where the cause of the problem may be and what you can do about it.
Book a call
If you prefer to speak to a real, live person, book a call with me. I can ask for clarification where I need to, and you can ask me all the stuff you need to know. And if I can’t help, I will tell you that too—and point you at someone (or something) that could.
