Thanks for reaching out! Agency growth is good... until it gets out of control. I love helping agency owners grow profitably while spending less time on work they don't like. (Today, that often means dealing with COVID-19 and the recession, to shift from recovery to thriving again.)

One client said my advice helped her stop “treading water,” so that she and her business partner could finally focus on solutions instead of problems. Another client said he saw more progress in his first month of coaching than in 10 years on his own. At another client’s agency, I uncovered $2+ million in untapped value during our first consulting call.

My approach to helping agencies focuses on accountability (keeping you on track), advice (what to do, based on your unique Values, Goals, and Resources), and perspective (how your situation compares to other agencies). I've worked one-on-one with nearly 400 agencies on every inhabited continent—but I choose to limit my active client count to ensure you get a boutique client experience.

Your answers here will help customize our free exploratory call, to see if we’re a match to work together. Anything you share is confidential. At the end of the call—if your situation and goals are a match—I'll recommend next steps to get started!

Question Title

* 1. What’s your contact info, so I can match your answers to you?

Question Title

* 2. Why did you start (or join) your agency? How has that matched up to reality? (I realize the pandemic impacts the current definition of "reality.")

Question Title

* 3. Do you lean toward running a Lifestyle agency (where your goal is to keep running the agency as long as possible) or an Equity agency (where your goal is to sell it eventually)? If you’re not sure, check out my article on the topic.

Question Title

* 4. If you could wave a magic wand, what’s different 1 year from now (aside from never hearing the word "COVID-19" again)? What about 5 years from now? Why are those important to you?

Question Title

* 5. What baseline metrics would you use to track our success in working together? (Typically, my work focuses on helping you grow profitably while reducing your day-to-day involvement in running the agency—aka, "work less, earn more.")

Question Title

* 6. Do you have a target budget range in mind? I can typically find something that works for most budgets and client situations. (For comprehensive boutique support, my typical client spends at least US$30,000 a year—but I have options ranging from $1,000 to $50,000+, depending on your goals. The Executive Coaching program is currently a flat $4,000 per month, plus an additional $2,000 in the first month.)

Question Title

* 7. If you’ve worked with a business consultant (or coach or other paid advisor before), what did you like and not like about that relationship?

Question Title

* 8. Do you have any questions you want to be sure I address during our exploratory call?
