As a business owner, you are wrapped up in the day-to-day details of running your business. Depending on the size and structure of the company, you may be the chief cook and bottle washer. And we all know what this means, you do too many tasks and have too many worries. You worry about revenue, supply chain problems, customers, employees, and a host of other important issues. And throughout all the work and worry, you probably, on some level, neglect your own needs, goals, and ambitions. You just don’t have the time.
As a coach, I can assure you that you are not alone. Therefore, one of the first things I do with clients is work with them on a One-Page Personal Plan (OPPP). Basically, the purpose of the OPPP is to ensure that you do not forget about yourself and what
As a Scaling Up coach, obviously I think that the investment is worth it. However, it is important to know the costs and benefits of working with a Scaling Up coach. Because at the end of the day, the business owner must believe in its value.
The Scaling Up methodology is based upon the Rockefeller Habits. Basically, these habits have helped more than 80,000 companies reach and surpass their business goals.

With the right people at your side and a killer strategy to dominate your market, it’s time to make sure you have an execution plan. Of course, this is much easier said than done, especially when you’re trying to scale your company. So how can you tell how well your company is doing?

The key question to ask yourself is whether all business processes are running without drama and driving industry-leading profitability. To answer this we will work together to identify the principles and habits needed to sustainably grow your company. With a killer strategy and/or heroic employees willing t
The foundation of a successful business scaling strategy is figuring out your company’s competitive advantage. While it can take a bit of work before you find it, I’ll be working with you. It’s usually invisible to customers, and it addresses a huge established choke point in your industry.
Identifying your advantage is something your competitor can’t do or won’t do without great effort or expense. It can take years before you develop it because it would provide little to no competitive advantage if it could be done cheaply, easily, or quickly.

I previously wrote a blog discussing the Four Pillars necessary for businesses to succeed and grow. This blog focuses on one of those essential decisions – People Decisions. After all, organizations are built and run by people. Before worrying about having the best product or service, you need to make sure you have the right people for the job. When you have the right people in the right roles doing the right thing, execution is 80-90% solved.
Every year millions of people start new ventures. Of those that survive, only 4% ever reach more than $1 million in revenue. To get to these heights and beyond, your company must consistently make the right decisions around the four pillars of its business. For the last two decades, this coaching method has helped more than 70,000 high-growth businesses scale these heights with a proven, 100% holistic solution. This blog is an introduction to the Four Pillar Coach system. So, are you ready to scale your business? Are you prepared to take your business from a small handful of employees and grow it into an industry-dominating powerhouse?
