What my clients are saying...
What I find extremely helpful, is the customized solution you have provided. Instead of putting us through a standard one size fits all program, you are helping us work on the aspects that are most important to us. This allows us to focus on the areas that generate the most cash flow, while tweaking more long-term goals. This is key to us as a young company.

Perfection: the absence of flaws. Generally filed somewhere between time travel, magic wands, and unicorns. In other words: the fantasy section. The pursuit of perfection in your business will lead nowhere. Replace it with the pursuit of value. After all: “Perfection is the elimination of flaws. Value is the creation of worth.” (For more fun…Read More
I am talking to you, the accountant. And you, the attorney. I am talking to you: the realtor, the banker, the writer, and the art hanger. Everybody reading this, all of our work is creative. It is the core idea in my interview on Jessica Matthews’ How I Create Me podcast. Creativity is transformation When…Read More

Your clients have options. They don’t have to buy from you. They don’t have to choose you. They don’t have to call you. There are plenty of other people and businesses that will gladly take their calls. What can you do to make sure you are their first phone call time after time after time…Read More
What do you want to know about your best customers? When you are looking for your ideal customers, how do you know who to look for? Demographics are only relevant if they are relevant. And in so many cases, they are not. What you most want to know about your best customers is not their…Read More
