I help small business owners clarify their business goals, and then rack up weekly wins towards achieving those goals.

Working with efficiency is worthless unless you are working on the stuff that moves the needle for you.

Case Study: Birth of a Child Changes a Business

After my daughter, Lucy, was born, my available time for work decreased dramatically.  I was trying to run my business the way I had prior to this life-changing event, and I was failing.

Similarly, I helped a freelance web developer set clear business priorities after the birth of his daughter.  This helped him squeeze significantly-more money out of each business day, which, in turn, allows him to be present at home with his daughter and wife more often.

As people change, their businesses need to change with them.

Coaching Results

I have vastly different priorities in life now compared to when I launched my WordPress design business 12 years ago.  Don’t you?

I have kids, wife, house, cars, cats, dog, and a slew of related things that occupy my time (driving my daughter to kindergarten, fixing the broken sink, repairing the taillight on my wife’s car, etc. etc. etc.).

Basically, the requirements and expectations around my time have changed drastically since 2005.

Similarly, the way I run my business has changed along with my life’s changing needs.

For example, I no longer work nights and weekends (can’t wake up at 5 a.m. to get the kids ready for school and stay up until 2 a.m. getting work done anymore).

Interestingly, most business-owners are not changing their business to match their changing life priorities.

I have coached business owners in a number of areas: travel agents, other coaches, designers, web professionals, and more.

The program is fully-customized, as are the results you will achieve.  Basically, I can help you figure out which direction to head, and you’ve got to take yourself there.

Through our work together, my clients have achieved the following Results:

  • Doubling of take-home income through pricing, marketing, and advertising strategy.
  • Limiting available work hours to 9-5, M-F (and prioritizing that time properly)
  • Finding direction & enjoyment in work.
  • Untethering from a physical location to enjoy the fruits of traveling while working.

Why My Clients Recommend Me As Their Business Coach:

My clients recommend me for the timely, honest, and unique perspective I bring to business and human problems.

Through my proven business-building and coaching systems, we can discover a better business through a better you.

My goal is to give you the tools you need to become a better business owner, leader, husband/wife, father/mother, boss, friend, neighbor, and citizen.
