Real insights and proven strategies that will take your
business from where it is to where you want it to be.

Welcome…

I’m glad you’re here.  It means you believe your business could – and possibly should – be performing at a higher level than it is. But something’s preventing you from getting it there. It could be a single element or a combination of factors.

Either way, sometimes you just need a little outside help. And that’s where I can help.

Don’t think of me as a consultant, consider
me the difference between where your
business is and where you want it to be.

Business Growth Services…

High growth demands a combination of insights and actions that are distinctly unique to each business and situation. Here is an overview of the types of activities undertaken to enable client-companies to achieve exponential growth. While oftentimes a number of these work in conjunction to achieve the results, they can also stand on their own.

  • Clarity Sessions®

    Clarity Sessions®

    If the 11 herbs and spices brought Colonel Sanders his fame and Apple’s ubiquitous “design” theirs, then the Clarity Session has brought me mine.  The Clarity Session is the single most important element of meaningful business growth. It sets the direction and foundation of everything to come.

    Clarity Sessions can take many shapes, styles and duration and are uniquely designed for each business case. They can range from 2-hour, ½ day, full day or multi-day sessions and can include a mix of company leadership, full team and even clients or other business professionals that can add unique value and perspective.

    As with many other services that go into creating exponential growth for client-companies, the Clarity Session can be a standalone service or as the first step of a more holistic engagement.

    Either way, I promise you your mind will be sufficiently blown, with many a Clarity Session participant stating that it was one of the most impactful and powerful meetings they’ve ever participated in.

  • Business Growth Plans

    Business Growth Plans

    Building off the insights gleaned from the Clarity Session a highly personalized Business Growth Plan is then created to drive the implementation of the business growth effort.  This includes the strategies, key actions, owners, deliverables, dates, financial roadmap and management dashboard, all done in a plan language, real world, easy-to-follow format.

    Armed with this document, you’ll have everything you need to propel your business forward.

  • Implementation Services

    Implementation Services

    Following the Clarity Session and creation of the Business Growth Plan, this is where the real rubber meets the road.  A plan without implementation is not work the paper it’s printed on.

    This is a key differentiator of Exceed Growth and is an area where the greatest gains are made.  Arm-in-arm, I work with you and your team to implement the identified key growth levers and actions.  This can be done via a laser focus on specific areas that I can add the most value or can be done via an across the board management of the broader plan elements as a whole.

    Either way, I become an ingratiated member of your team through the implementation process.  I participate in company and client meetings, work directly on driving initiatives forward, attend tradeshows or industry events, essentially drive the implementation of the plan forward just as a member of your team would.

  • Implementation Checkpoints & Dashboard Reviews

    Implementation Checkpoints & Dashboard Reviews

    Whether as part of ongoing implementation services or as a standalone service following the Clarity Session and Business Growth Plan, this is a regularly scheduled online or in-person discussion to review the status of the plan implementation, review current numbers within the custom dashboard and either celebrate some victories or course correct on any areas not getting the traction or results just yet as envisioned.

  • Fractional Executive

    Fractional Executive

    High growth companies have needs that the current P&L can’t fully support.  But not fulfilling that role can thwart the business’s ability to propel its way forward.  A growing and common solution is a fractional, or interim, executive.

    It’s exactly as it sounds, I participate fully in your business in the exact area you need the help, but simply on a part-time basis, whether in person, remote or commute.  Marketing, communications, operations, training and team development, recruiting, are a few of the areas I can fulfill for your company on an interim, part-time basis until your ready to bring in a permanent solution or resource, which I also help drive when ready.

  • On-Demand Needs

    On-Demand Needs

    Independent of some of the more holistic approaches to exponentially grow client businesses, sometimes you just need to get things done.  These completely standalone initiatives can be done directly or via a project management capacity and can include:

    Brand & Logo Development

    Website

    Online Marketing Set-Up & Management

    Recruitment

    Training

    PR & Media Relations

    Company Communications

    Pricing

    Proposal Creation

    Pitch Documents

    Contract Development & Negotiation

    Business Development

    Tradeshow Support

    Fundraising

    And any number of other one-time, standalone needs.

    Need to get something done and need some expertise or an unencumbered set of hands, let’s discuss it.

  • Speaking & Workshops

    Speaking & Workshops

    As a 25+ year business growth expert, both as an in-house senior executive as well as an independent consultant, I have amassed an extensive arsenal of insights, tools and exercises that help companies grow.  I am available to deliver customized and highly interactive presentations to most any size audience and workshops to groups for generally up to 25 participants.

    Simply get in touch to discuss your event needs and what focus areas are best suited for your audience.

When it comes to growing your business, sometimes you need a little outside help.

Some questions you
may have…

The best way to understand whether working together would be a good fit to help you grow your business is through a phone, video conference or in person discussion. It’s why I confidently offer a complimentary Business Growth Assessment, at no cost, no strings attached.

Let's Talk +
Where do you work, i.e., do you travel or is it done via phone, videoconference?

It’s a combination of both, in-person and phone, videoconference.  Rapport, trust and a true understanding of your business and your team is best done in person.  However, once the foundation is set, most of our work together will be done via 21st century technologies and key, value-driven travel and in-person meetings.  I have worked with companies throughout Southern California, Phoenix, Tennessee, Detroit, Toronto and other points in-between.

How many people are on the Exceed Growth team?

I personally am involved and manage most every aspect of our relationship and activities.  I do this largely by leveraging the talented resources that are already a part of your organization and team.  However, there are commonly instances where additional talent is needed.  In these instances, I have a deep rolodex of highly capable companies and contractors that I regularly work with – marketing firms, copywriters, financial modelers, PR professionals, project managers and more, to execute the initiatives essential for success.  In all instances, any third party firms or resources are contracted directly with you, with no remuneration to me in any way, shape or form.

How much do you charge? How do you get paid?

Every assignment starts with a defined scope of work and precise cost proposal that is borne out of a Business Growth Clarity Session that identifies the areas of your business’s need and the pinpoints the specific areas I can positively impact.  You’ll know exactly what’s happening, when, by who, for how long and for what cost.  Most importantly, as a business growth resource, I’m happy to report each dollar you invest will result in new revenue, not expense, in your P & L.  In cases where there’s an earned level of mutual trust and respect, I most enthusiastically will forego traditional fees in exchange for a percentage of the new revenue and growth that’s created.

What types of companies do you work with?

Since I have deep experience across many industries and company sizes and stages, the spectrum is wide.  Less important to me is the business, industry or size, more important is the interpersonal fit and willingness of client-partners to embrace evolved ways of thinking about their business and wholeheartedly implement the mutually identified actions essential for success.  On a practical level though, resources matter too.  Business growth can require bandwidth and capital to implement changes or capitalize on opportunities.  The best way to determine whether I can help you grow your business and if we’d be a good fit is to talk.

Do you have any references or previous clients I can speak with?

Absolutely.  Would be thrilled to put you in touch with clients I have worked with so you can learn first hand about how I work, what to expect and the impact we have made.  In the meantime, I proudly invite you to read what clients and associates say.

How many clients do you work with at any one time?

Frankly, it depends.  There are many different ways I work with clients to help them evolve and grow their businesses, and for different lengths of time.  From Clarity Sessions, to business plan reviews, select or full plan implementation, fractional executive and other as needed needs.  As it’s highly personal and engaged, it’s seldom more than a few.  The best way to determine whether we’d be a good fit is to talk.

What’s the best way to get started?

The best starting point simply is to talk, whether in person, via videoconference or telephone.  It’s on me, no cost and no strings attached, and you’ll not only get a sense of how we might work together, but I guarantee you’ll walk away with meaningful insights that you can use today to positively impact your business.
