* DEFINE * DESIGN * IGNITE * I consult based on you. You’re the business owner, which means you are the heart of your company. Let’s work together to organize and manage your company in a way that best fits your strengths and weaknesses. Not every business is the same, because not every entrepreneur is the same. I take the time with each of my clients to produce individualized and effective consulting. A lot of other consultants and coaches have a system set in places filled with forms and 7, 9 or 11 steps of how to run a successful business. This approach may work for some of you and it may irritate the everliving daylights out of the rest of you. There aren't 7 systems or 9 steps or even 249 modules you can learn that will guarantee a successful business and fulfilled entrepreneur. I'm also here to tell you that you don't have to know what activity-based costing and aggregate planning is, or what AIDA stands for, in order to run a successful business. Starting and managing your own company can be challenging, but it HAS to be fulfilling and enjoyable. You're an entrepreneur. I already know you are passionate, innovative and full of zest (which others like to call attitude). In my opinion fun, positive energy and enthusiasm go hand in hand with the know-how of running your own company. I'm here to consult based on YOU. Not good with numbers? No problem. Can't stand to manage others but want to start your own company? Piece of cake. Have a great idea and NO idea how to run a company? Come on over. Burnt Out? Let me help you become ignited again. I'm here to guide, help, motivate and assist you in whatever you need to make your business everything you have every imagined. I'm here to be your right hand (wo)man. Your partner. Your ignition. www.twofournine.com
