What We Bring You
We invest in you as you invest in yourself. We use a hybrid blend of coaching, collaborative consulting, training, and a dash of mentorship. Each piece plays an integral part in a process that is customized to you and your business.
What is Coaching?
Business coaching is a partnership whose purpose is to empower you to achieve your desired results. The coach does not need to be an expert in your field. The best coaches support your learning process by asking questions that guide you to discover your own answers. They hold you accountable to your plan. Coaching is neither counseling nor therapy.
What is Consulting?
Consulting is traditionally defined as being paid to give expert advice. It is usually more focused on business growth or processes than on individuals. This is where we differ; we work with you to do collaborative problem-solving, rather than tell you what to do. When you have created the solution, you're more empowered and motivated.
Training and Mentorship
Our primary objective of empowering you requires that we include some experiential training in our work together. We can also help you develop or refine the training that you give your employees and customers.
Mentorship usually involves an expert in a particular field or skillset giving advice, guidance, and encouragement to someone with much less experience. When and where this fits, we include it.

First YOU, and then your business. Our primary focus is on you for two simple reasons:
- 1First, as an owner, you are at the center of the business and you affect all aspects of it. That means that focusing on you achieves maximum results with the least effort. You are the force multiplier!
- 2Second, the life you live inside your skin is 24/7. "Business Owner" is only one of many roles you play in your overall life. We're here to help you have a better life, not just a better business.
This is your journey, so we will customize it for you. Here are a few quick-start programs to inspire your thinking about what you want to accomplish.
Go F.A.R.R: Peacefully Coping With Change and Uncertainty
Be Flexible, Adaptable, Resourceful, and Resilient. These are the essentials for coping with the fast-changing world today. Build on your strengths and existing skills with Mind Models™ to intentionally create the future you want. Follow a defined process to success.
We don't do it on purpose, of course, but most of us get in our own way. Self-sabotage isn't usually dark or intentionally destructive. We get comfortable with the way things are, even if they're not really working. We procrastinate. Or we overthink things and complicate them. We distract ourselves and seek comfort instead of dealing with what's not working. A few core Mind Models™ will empower you to end this habit.
How to Have Difficult Conversations (Without Damaging Relationships)
Most of our problems are communication problems of some kind. Solving problems, making decisions, reaching agreement, or just working together; all of these need effective communication, which occasionally includes constructive disagreement. Learn and practice the simple skills required for nonjudgemental communication.

The Mental "Magic" Used By Billionaires
It's not mindset or law of attraction! What sets the top 1% apart is how they think, not what they think about. What they do subconsciously, you can learn to do intentionally with our system of thought frameworks, making your success predictable and highly probable. We are two of just a handful of coaches trained in this formerly trade-secret technology.
